Reviews of the movie Doctor:
Sivakarthikeyan’s performance is praised everywhere, these are the first reviews from critics.
#Doctor [3.5/5] : A fun entertainer.
Dark Comedy .. For all types of audiences .. @Siva_Kartikeyan downplayed his acting as the character demands. Still, he scores a lot in mass scenes and comedy.
A completely different outing for him.
