Airaa

Spoiler Alert! Without revealing some plot elements it will be difficult to review the film Airaa as those key elements are the problematic areas of this new Nayanthara film. The idea of a horror story where the ghost is seeking revenge because the society treated her badly when she was alive is a good thought. […]




Thadam

Thadam directed by Magizh Thirumeni is an interesting plot executed in the most typical Tamil movie style. It is not necessarily an out of the box or a fresh take on a thriller subject.

Dev is one of those films where I felt I should show this to the characters in the movie (hypothetical scenario) and show them how ridiculous and stupid they are […]







Sarvam Thaala Mayam

Sarvam Thaala Mayam has this broad stroke narrative which sort of dilutes the impact of the break free agenda it has towards true music.

Petta

Karthik Subbaraj is one guy who openly admitted that he liked Lingaa, one of the worst Rajinikanth films in the recent past. That sort of shows how big a fan he is of the stylish super star and a talent like him collaborating with Rajinikanth obviously gave me hope as it may give an end […]




Adanga Maru

Adanga Maru starring Jayam Ravi is one script that one will write if they watch half a dozen of Shankar movies back to back. The heavily used out theme of hero getting destroyed by mighty villains and then taking revenge on each one of them is getting repeated here. I am not entirely against using […]
