My Santa

In my review for Madhav Ramadasan’s Ilayaraja, I have talked about a film named Angels in the Outfield which I loved as a small kid and later realized that it was a very trashy film according to the critics and the general audience.  My Santa is one movie that can be a childhood memory for […]




Final Thoughts

The signal is red for adults and green for adults who are planning to watch it with kids.

Thambi

Writing a review for Jeethu Joseph’s new Tamil movie Thambi is a little bit tricky. Because the one comparison I have in my head is such that if I spill it, it might spoil the entire movie for you. Jeethu Joseph is a man who has created really impressive thrillers and we are all familiar […]




Final Thoughts

When I saw the trailer, I feared the presence of too much action masala in the content but to my surprise, the amount of masala in this thriller was never annoying.

Dabangg 3

When the first Dabangg came, even though I wasn’t a huge fan of that movie, on the whole, I really enjoyed watching Salman Khan playing this irreverent cop Chulbul Pandey. The second part was a forgettable attempt to cash in on the likability of the character and when it comes to the third part the […]




Final Thoughts

A superstar showing his arrogance by taking his audience for granted: that’s Dabangg 3.

Hero

PS Mithran was one director who showed immense promise when he came with his debut venture Irumbu Thirai that showed the seriousness of the way we carelessly handled our data privacy. His new venture Hero starring Sivakarthikeyan is a highly diluted spoon-fed social preach that has only the shadow of the man who created Irumbu […]




Final Thoughts

Hero is a highly diluted spoon-fed social preach that has only the shadow of the man who created Irumbu Thirai.

Thrissur Pooram

Sitting through the latest Jayasurya movie Thrissur Pooram is not a difficult thing. But finding a take away for you as a viewer after this two and a half-hour long movie is an extremely difficult thing. Scripted by music director Ratheesh Vega and directed by Rajesh Mohanan, Thrissur Pooram is a collage of almost all […]




Final Thoughts

If Jayasurya showing his swagger by folding his Mundu and staring at villains is enough for you, then you can try your luck with this one.

Valiyaperunnal

When I walked out during the interval of the movie Valiyaperunnal to grab a cup of coffee, I heard someone in the audience say that Ittymaani was far better than this. And when the movie ended, the almost full house audience walked out without much of a response. The attempt of debutant director Dimal Dennis […]




Final Thoughts

To all those who simply scrolled down, read at least that last paragraph before blindly following that green signal.

Prathi Poovankozhi

Prathi Poovankozhi is a movie based on the short story Sankadam by Unni R. What’s so interesting about the story of the movie is that it sort of has realness in the way it treats the situation through which our main character goes through. If a movie like Ozhivu Divasathe Kali exposed the inherent discrimination […]




Final Thoughts

Because of the terrific performance of Manju Warrier, the journey of Madhuri becomes exciting.

Driving License

Writer Sachy has a knack to find interesting conflicts in his stories and the new movie Driving License featuring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramood is a product of identifying one such peculiar conflict. Somewhere along the line Driving License becomes a study about that fine line between ego and self-respect. Driving license is a little bit […]




Final Thoughts

If that conflict was pushed to its maximum intensity and then given a solution, the movie would have been slightly more gripping.
