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 […]




Final Thoughts

What makes Asuran a recommended movie is the fact that an important issue of class-divide is getting presented in the mainstream cinema with a popular star like Dhanush portraying the hero’s role.

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 […]




Final Thoughts

If movies were people, Kadaikutty Singam and Namma Veettu Pillai will be siblings.

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 […]




Final Thoughts

Apart from the unintentional comedy prop of everyone speaking in Tamil, given the current political scenario, there is nothing particularly exciting about this KV Anand action thriller.

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 […]




Final Thoughts

Magamuni demands an invested viewing experience from its viewers and if you can give that, the movie will form a special bond with you.

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. […]




Final Thoughts

What you saw in the trailer is pretty much the entire coma episode of the movie. The actual movie has abundant other trash to dump on you.

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 […]




Final Thoughts

That pitch change is definitely there in Vinoth’s Nerkonda Paarvai. But the movie doesn’t deviate from its focus and you will walk out of the theater thinking about the judgmental behavior of Society

Kadaram Kondan

SPOILER ALERT! The entire climax of the movie Kadaram Kondan has Vikram’s character KK walking into a police station wearing a mere half jacket of police as a disguise (The second best disguise after Clark Kent’s glasses). He is a wanted criminal in the police records and while he almost makes a chaotic scene inside […]




Final Thoughts

The lack of excitement at any point in the narrative makes this a forgettable attempt at creating an action suspense thriller.

Sindhubaadh

Almost every aspiring filmmaker might have had this wish of doing an action movie where the hero is in a different land, fighting mighty villains, doing all the exotic stunts like jumping from buildings, crashing cars, etc. And if you try to build a story around that wish, the conviction factor will bother you because […]




Final Thoughts

There is nothing wrong in getting inspired by classic Hollywood action flicks and paying a tribute to them. But it shouldn’t end up like a half baked binge watch of all the action set pieces.
