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.

NGK

Whenever Nanda Gopalan Kumaran is having an eccentric emotional outburst in the movie NGK, all I could see was a Selvaraghavan trying to escape from the constraints of a U certified commercial hero-centric film. On paper, this movie has all the essential ingredients required for a Selvaraghavan film filled with a lot of grays. But […]




Final Thoughts

The sarcastic digs at current politics and the idea of a flawed leader, who is at least better than the rest, deserved a better style of making.

Mr. Local

M Rajesh is a director whom I think should only write dialogues and should never try to write a script. His scripts are terribly wayward. And because of some of the pop culture reference filled dialogues in his movies, we sort of tend to forgive him for the extreme laziness he shows in writing his […]




Final Thoughts

Mr. Local is a lazily written comedy by director M Rajesh who thinks that abundant dialogue humor can cover up mediocrity.

Kee

In the movie Kee, Govind Padmasurya plays the role of a venomous hacker who hacks details from everyone’s phones and laptops and makes life hell for them. And he is presented as this enormous figure, even the villains we saw in Die Hard franchise or James Bond for that matter would get scared. And the […]




Final Thoughts

Kalees’ idea of this movie is actually suited for one category of people; the ones who don’t use smartphones or anything that is connected to the internet.

Ayogya

Ayogya, the official Tamil remake of Telugu hit Temper is a movie that plays it for the gallery much like the Telugu version. The common sentiment surrounding the rape cases that rapists should be given death sentence immediately is the agenda of the film and with a sentimental hero worshipping happening at the end, you […]




Final Thoughts

Made as the transformation story of a corrupt police officer, Ayogya is a problematic script that ultimately manages to be a passable mass masala entertainer.
