Ayalaan Review | A Broad-Stroke Sci-Fi Fantasy That Is Strictly for Kids

I am a bit confused about giving a verdict for the new Sivakarthikeyan movie Ayalaan. On one hand, it is a movie with a very simple and predictable story with every twist and turn feeling very familiar.

Nikhil Mahajan’s film I Love You, which is streaming on JioCinema, has a run time of 95 minutes and has a very enticing premise for a single-location thriller.

And it becomes even more… Continue reading Cuttputlli
