Run Baby Run

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Mohanlal’s onam release Run Baby Run, directed by Joshy is a smartly crafted movie. It is not a path breaker or trend setter, but it’s definitely a thriller that will give the audience the expected pleasure. A fresh plot and reduced level of cliché makes RBR a good one time watch. The plot basically revolves …




Expendables 2

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Expendables second part is a bizarre mix of cliché and predictability. A too simple story line with unwanted special appearances to give it an all star feel has literally destroyed the entire movie. Apart from some brutal fight sequences and occasional cool dialogs, there is nothing in the movie to make it an interesting watch. …




Thappana

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Megastar Mammootty’s eid release Thappana is a movie that doesn’t offers anything new and ends up in being a disappointment.

Apart from Mammootty’s well executed comedies …

The expected bonding between all the stories didn’t work out as it was supposed to be. …




Mr. Marumakan

When it comes to Mr. Marumakan, only thing that can be said as a positive is the reduction of non veg jokes. Apart …




Ek Tha Tiger

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Salman Khan’s new film with YRF is indeed a good entertainer. A movie that is meant for entertainment has delivered its promise up to a good level with a neat mix of action, romance and moderate amount of melodrama. Story written by Aditya Chopra has his signature style of suspense which can distract some audience. …







Simhasanam

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Shaji Kailas is desperate to get back to the industry with something big. But his reluctance to accept the fact that audience won’t accept cliché topics has once again given him a poor result. Written and directed by Shaji Kailas himself, Simhasanam is a creative mixture of many hit movies of Shaji Kailas. Even though …
