Some of the reviews are as follows:
\"Miss Sundari is a brave attempt to showcase the dark side of domestic violence and the power of women to fight back. Shriya Saran delivers a stunning performance as the oppressed wife who turns into a fierce avenger. However, the movie suffers from a lackluster script, uneven pace and implausible twists that dilute the impact of the message. The movie could have been a gripping thriller if it had more focus and clarity.\"[^2^]
\"Miss Sundari is a quirky dark comedy that tries to explore the consequences of greed and lust. The movie has some hilarious moments and witty dialogues that keep the audience entertained. The movie also has a strong female lead in Aishwarya Rajesh, who carries the movie on her shoulders with her effortless acting and comic timing. However, the movie fails to maintain a consistent tone and genre, and switches between comedy and seriousness without any logic. The movie also has some unnecessary scenes and songs that drag the narration. The climax is also disappointing and predictable.\"[^1^]
\"Miss Sundari is a mediocre remake of a Telugu movie that does not do justice to the original. The movie has a good concept and a talented cast, but lacks in execution and presentation. The movie is neither funny nor thrilling, and ends up being a boring and confusing mess. The direction is amateurish, the editing is choppy and the music is forgettable. The movie wastes the potential of Shriya Saran, who tries hard to salvage the movie with her expressive eyes and emotions. The movie is a waste of time and money.\"[^3^] aa16f39245
