David

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Much like his first film Shaitan, Bejoy Nambiar’s David is also a movie that relies highly on the making style. A plot that can add as many Davids as you want, Bejoy has taken 3 for Hindi and 2 for Tamil. The review here is of the Tamil version. Well the concept of following a …




Kadal

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Ideological clash between good and evil; and the ultimate victory of goodness over the negative mindset through the help of love is ultimately what Manirathnam is trying to convey through his new venture “Kadal”.  Unfortunately the uneven pitching of emotional drama and the lack of required intensity makes the movie an easily predictable movie with …

Nothing unpredictable, nothing out of the odd but the bloody real gunshots with absolute brutality and a suitable …

The engaging pace of the screenplay with fast cuts and cheesy counter dialogs are all kind of spoiled by the over dramatic ending. The plot of the …




Samar

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Sometimes, trying to make a suspense thriller with a totally unpredictable nature can give us something that can be termed as nonsense. Samar starring Vishal is a fitting example of that. A story that has an interesting first half and even second half is just burned into ashes when we realize the silly and pathetic …
