Onward

Onward, the latest Pixar movie is a delightful comedy that has a good mixture of choreographed visual comedy along with an impressive layer of emotional drama. Onward gradually transforms from slapstick kind of comedy into that feel-good pill. It may not be a drastically unique movie, but it has certain elements in the story that […]

Final Thoughts

The brotherhood, the lack of a villain and the warmth of relationships make Onward that go-to movie for you to relax and revamp yourself.

2 States

A couple of minutes into the movie 2 States, our hero is asking his father to drop the knife, a spoof of the classic scene from Kireedom. That scene is actually a warning for the viewer about what they will have to suffer for the next 130 minutes. If you weren’t willing to walk out […]

Final Thoughts

There wasn’t a single element in the script that made me feel that 2 States had the potential to be an entertaining cinema.

Kappela

Taking a very slim idea and converting it into an engaging film is a very exciting thing to witness as a viewer. That process sort of shows you the endless opportunities in making a movie. Kappela could have been easily a preachy film. But debutant director Muhammed Musthafa tries to give it that cinematic appeal […]

Final Thoughts

With a terrific pool of actors delivering the performances in the desired way, Kappela has the element to excite a cinephile.

Baaghi 3

The audacity of the director Ahmed Khan to credit himself as the “Action Designer” and director of the movie Baaghi 3, after making all those atrocious abuses of the branch of science called Physics for almost two and a half hours deserves a minimum of two film fare awards. You hear all these conversations happening in the […]

Final Thoughts

Baaghi 3 is what if Balakrishna did his stunts with a believable physique and with the help of better graphics.

The Invisible Man

What I found captivating about the new movie The Invisible Man is its minimalism. Even the grandest of setpieces in the movie feels like something that is achievable in a regional language movie in our country. This movie has that nervous energy similar to that of Don’t Breath and A Quiet Place. And the way […]

Final Thoughts

The way The Invisible Man evolves from a sci-fi theme to a psychological drama is pretty impressive.

Thappad

The title is Thappad (slap) and the trailer reveals that it’s a movie about a woman who decides to file a divorce petition against her husband when he slapped her during a party. In our heads, we will be imagining the movie to have a husband character who has absolutely no regard for his wife […]

Final Thoughts

Through those multiple stories of the women around Amrutha, Thappad also proves the point that moving on doesn’t always have to be associated with the word compromise.

Bhoomiyile Manohara Swakaryam

Bhoomiyile Manohara Swakaryam is one gigantic cringe-fest. From melodramatic dialogues to caricature-like characters that are somewhat similar to those mediocre government ads we saw on TV, this movie directed by Shyju Anthikkad has everything that can give you a headache. The plan is to show the viewer that religion has penetrated so much into our […]

Final Thoughts

A script that wants to take everything to the very extreme in a very superficial way became even more insufferable when it got made in a ludicrous way.

Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal

The trailer of Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal was nothing short of mediocre and in my opinion and that wasn’t a pleasing invitation card to watch a movie. If you also had the same feeling watching the trailer of Desingh Periyasamy’s Dulquer Salmaan- Ritu Varma starrer Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal, then I have good news for you.  The […]

Final Thoughts

With enough humor covering up the flawed logic of the story, it’s a stress-free popcorn entertainer with flaws that we won’t mind forgiving.
