Moonlight

Remember Richard Linklater’s Boyhood? If Linklater’s movie was about the tough situations faced by a boy from childhood to teenage, Moonlight from director Barry Jenkins explores a bit wider in terms of emotional ground and self realization. The disturbing feel this movie manages to create through its semi poetic and largely realistic visualization is so …

Jolly LLB 2

When you compare Jolly LLB 2 and Jolly LLB (2013 film), you can see that the highs and lows and even the structure of the screenplay is quite similar.

Bogan

When compared to the last fantasy genre Jayam Ravi tried (Miruthan) and the lackluster debut movie of director Lakshman (Romeo Juliet), Bogan is definitely a better movie. Every entertainer Tamil movie has this constrains of depicting certain portions in certain way and those clichés clearly drag Bogan backwards. With a terrific Arvind Swamy and an …
