Saamy 2

Aswin Bharadwaj S

The creativity part in Saamy 2 (also known as Saamy Square) is so damn pathetic that you might end up appreciating its mediocre climax that is slightly better than the rest of the movie. Boleros are flying, logic was dying and you will wonder what the hell is happening and then the reality that this …




Seema Raja

Aswin Bharadwaj S

For a good chunk of its runtime, Seema Raja directed by Ponram feels like a repeated formula with hell a lot of randomness in its screenplay. And after that it tries to be political with all the farmer issue coming into the picture and with a bloated legacy reincarnation idea, Seema Raja is an entertainer …




60 Vayadu Maaniram

Aswin Bharadwaj S

60 Vayadu Maaniram from Radha Mohan has this message about taking care of your parents written all over it. As a viewer, I wish to see cinemas that express their messages in the most silent way making us understand that message by taking an effort through exploring the emotional arcs of characters. A movie like …




Imaikkaa Nodigal

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Imaikkaa Nodigal feels like a movie that disrespected its antagonist. The film’s most solid element is its antagonist and by diluting the plot towards the end and thus softening the intricacy Imaikkaa Nodigal from Ajay Gnanamuthu falls into the typical category. The film has interesting hooks to grab your attention, but what comes after those …




Kolamavu Kokila

The commercial movie industry, especially in Tamil has this inclination towards doing films that people call as “mass” entertainers. The problem with these mass entertainers these days is that they don’t have any intention to reinvent the formula. Nayanthara, who is referred to as female superstar of the industry, through Kolamavu Kokila is giving that …




Lakshmi

Aswin Bharadwaj S

To like Lakshmi, the new movie directed by A L Vijay you have to be alien to genres and most importantly to the phenomenon called Prabhu Deva. Anybody with some taste in movies would have easily guessed something about the story of this dance movie and the sad part is that Vijay has not done …




Vishwaroopam 2

Aswin Bharadwaj S

Even if you look at the story of the latest Mission Impossible movie, the ultimate agenda is diffusing a bomb that can cause a severe casualty. The reason why such movies work is mainly due to the convincing making and certain political subtexts that makes them something slightly edgier than a simple hero saving the …




Ghajinikanth

Aswin Bharadwaj S

In the simplest way what I can say about the new Arya movie Ghajinikanth is that it is utter crap. Arya has done similar crap previously like that torturous VSOP. But this one is beyond that and there was never a movie in the recent past that made me scratch my head out of fury …
