Here is the review roundup of "Goli Soda"
M Suganth of The Times of India says, "Despite the familiar storyline, Vijay Milton's script is interesting and at times, unpredictable. The film does take some time to get going and the initial scenes, when the boys try to woo girls like your typical Tamil cinema heroes, are somewhat tedious. But the director shifts gears when the boys start getting responsible."
Sify says, "Pandiraj's screenplay is smashingly original. He ignites the perfect reaction among the audiences with each and every dialogue. Vijay Milton makes a fantastic comeback as a director as his story and detailing are perfect and is able to extract spellbinding performances from all artists in the film."
According to Behindwoods Review Board, "Though there are exaggerated cinematic moments, Milton tells a good story under an unusual premise with engaging screenplay, sharp dialogues, good camerawork and interesting moments."
According to Indiaglitz, "Acclaimed for cinematography and with prior experience as a director, Vijay Milton has delivered a compelling and gripping story with 'Goli Soda'. While first half is lighthearted, the part after intermission is racy, emotional and action packed. The film does not involve any heroism - it's all appealing and even factual at times."
Verdict: Racy Entertainer, Must Watch
