Pichaikkaran 2 Review | Vijay Antony’s Political Resume Is, at Best, an Unintentional Comedy

I wasn’t a big fan of the 2016 film Pichaikkaran starring Vijay Antony in the title role. But the decision to make such a film for the Tamil audience at that point was somewhat understandable. But when it comes to its sequel Pichaikkaran 2, which has Vijay Antony in a double role, producer-writer- director-editor-music director… Continue reading Pichaikkaran 2 Review | Vijay Antony’s Political Resume Is, at Best, an Unintentional Comedy

Jackson Bazaar Youth Review | An Over-The-Top Visaranai With Some Commendable Performances

The shortest possible review for the new film Jackson Bazaar Youth directed by Shamal Sulaiman, would be, what if Shankar directed Visaranai.

Janaki Jaane Review | Weak Conflict With Outdated Writing Tropes Derails an Interesting Idea

The germ of the idea behind the film Janaki Jaane is pretty interesting. It talks about the hardships of a woman with this panicking disorder whenever she is alone or in the dark. But the issue with this film, directed by Aniesh Upaasana, is that it has very old tools to develop that idea into… Continue reading Janaki Jaane Review | Weak Conflict With Outdated Writing Tropes Derails an Interesting Idea

When you look at the first half of the film Neymar directed by Sudhi Maddison, you tend to have the least expectations about watching a good movie.
