Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum

Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum, the Tamil movie directed by Arisil Moorthy, is a mixed bag in terms of treatment. We call our films masala because they don’t really stick to one particular genre, and here, Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum is also trying the same with some indie sensibilities. It is a story about animal love,… Continue reading Raame Aandalum Raavane Aandalum




Annabelle Sethupathi

The genre tag given to Annabelle Sethupathi in Hotstar is horror. But in my experience, it transitioned into that genre only in the very last minute of the movie, where they made an announcement that there would be a second part for this lame horror-comedy. Taapsee Pannu and Vijay Sethupathi, who are now at a… Continue reading Annabelle Sethupathi




Tughlaq Durbar

At its core, Tughlaq Durbar starring Vijay Sethupathi has a very interesting concept. A concept where the hero and the villain are within the same individual. But sadly director Delhi Prasad Deenadayalan has no interest in placing that idea into a better premise. Written at a very basic level, Tughlaq Durbar is a usual movie… Continue reading Tughlaq Durbar




Boomika

In the movie Boomika, there is a sequence where the character Dharman, a local villager who takes care of this old mansion where the movie is set, talks about how he now understands his grandfather’s laughter, which he used to find weird. The editing pattern of that sequence combined with the background score is too… Continue reading Boomika




Netrikann

Netrikann, the new Nayanthara movie, is a thriller that feels inconsistent at times. What makes the film a watchable one is how the story unfolds and Ajmal Ameer’s performance as the antagonist. Despite the logical flaws, one could sense and the overtly verbal explanations, Netrikann manages to generate a sense of interest in the viewer.… Continue reading Netrikann




Thittam Irandu

SPOILER ALERT! Without revealing a major element in the script, which is also a suspense factor, it will be impossible to review the new Aishwarya Rajesh film Thittam Irandu. So please keep that in mind if you have plans to read the rest of the review. Thittam Irandu is far from perfect for sure. In… Continue reading Thittam Irandu




Sarpatta Parambarai

It’s interesting how Toofaan, Malik, and Sarpatta Parambarai got released on the same platform over a week’s time. I am saying this because while I was watching Pa Ranjith’s new movie Sarpatta Parambarai on Amazon Prime video, I was reminded of the other two movies. Toofaan for the obvious reason of being another movie based… Continue reading Sarpatta Parambarai




Vaazhl

Arun Prabhu Purushothaman’s second film after Aruvi, Vaazhl, has aspirations to be visually surreal. He is pushing a very used out theme in the modern day to a visceral level. But the jumps are extremely jarring. He is trying to narrate this story of asking people to live your life fully, do what you love,… Continue reading Vaazhl
