Kaithi

Imagine a Deepavali release movie that has no heroine, no dance, no song and yet so captivating; that’s Kaithi for you. I am not saying Kaithi is amazingly perfect because there are some over the top action sequences featuring Karthi that sort of does injustice to the situational thriller nature of this movie. But Lokesh […]




Bigil

When Shah Rukh Khan tweeted the trailer of Bigil, he added his comment saying it looks like Chak De on steroids. Well, to a great extent Bigil is exactly that. When Pink got remade into Tamil as Nerkonda Parvai, we saw Ajith trashing goons brutally and for anyone who has seen Pink, that kind of […]




Asuran

There is a B and C center audience in Tamil Nadu who is okay with a Kadaikutty Singham and Namma Veettu Pillai. And there are a lot of commercially successful films of similar nature where you clearly can sense the absence of subtlety in narration and presentation. Vetri Maaran’s Asuran is in a way his […]




Namma Veettu Pillai

Kadaikutty Singam that came last year from Pandiraj was a massive commercial success despite being an extremely old school family drama. I personally haven’t enjoyed that film at all and for me, Namma Veettu Pillai from Pandiraj was just one more Xerox copy of Kadaikutty Singam. With so many characters and cheesy melodrama happening frequently […]




Kaappaan

In Kaappaan there are moments where you will appreciate the kind of detailing KV Anand gives in the screenplay. But the problematic part of the movie is also the detailing. It goes to such levels at times making me wonder whether that was detailing or simply spoon-feeding. Kaappaan is a typical KV Anand movie that […]




Magamuni

Certain movies have this quality of staying in your mind because of the philosophy and political statements it made. The new Santhakumar movie Magamuni was one such experience for me. If you have a star actor playing a double role of twin brothers, there is a big possibility that filmmakers would go for the most […]




Comali

The one-liner concept of the idea of a guy waking up from coma after 16 years and not being able to cope with the technological advancement is indeed a fascinating thought. Comali, the new Jayam Ravi movie gave us a feeling that the movie is trying to explore that particular concept when its trailer released. […]




Nerkonda Paarvai

In Pink when Deepak Sehgal shows Rajveer Singh a photo of Rajveer’s sister Rajveer threatens Sehgal in a lower voice saying you don’t know who you are messing with. The response of Sehgal played by Amitab Bachchan was silence. But when it comes to Nerkonda Paarvai, Bharath Subramaniam played by Ajith has a verbal mass […]
