Pattas

Kodi, the last outing of the combination of RS Durai Senthilkumar and Dhanush was an engaging grey thriller that sort of stayed with me. Coming to the new film from this combo Pattas, the feeling one gets is extremely underwhelming.  Durai Senthilkumar has no intention to surprise the viewer. A tedious screenplay that just doesn’t… Continue reading Pattas

Darbar

Whenever Murugadoss tries to escalate the scale of things there is a lack of conviction evident in his presentation. His movies largely follow a template that sort of makes them his movies and the success of those movies depended on how he convinced the audience to buy those unreal situations. Darbar, Murugadoss’s first outing with… Continue reading Darbar

Thambi

Writing a review for Jeethu Joseph’s new Tamil movie Thambi is a little bit tricky. Because the one comparison I have in my head is such that if I spill it, it might spoil the entire movie for you. Jeethu Joseph is a man who has created really impressive thrillers and we are all familiar… Continue reading Thambi

Hero

PS Mithran was one director who showed immense promise when he came with his debut venture Irumbu Thirai that showed the seriousness of the way we carelessly handled our data privacy. His new venture Hero starring Sivakarthikeyan is a highly diluted spoon-fed social preach that has only the shadow of the man who created Irumbu… Continue reading Hero

Enai Noki Paayum Thota

Gautham Vasudev Menon always has this trademark voice-over by the hero in almost all his movies. And as a viewer, I haven’t had much of an issue with it (Well a part of me always felt it could have been a little less). But his long-awaited release Enai Noki Paayum Thota is one movie where… Continue reading Enai Noki Paayum Thota

Kaithi

Imagine a Deepavali release movie that has no heroine, no dance, no song and yet so captivating; that’s Kaithi for you. I am not saying Kaithi is amazingly perfect because there are some over the top action sequences featuring Karthi that sort of does injustice to the situational thriller nature of this movie. But Lokesh… Continue reading Kaithi

Bigil

When Shah Rukh Khan tweeted the trailer of Bigil, he added his comment saying it looks like Chak De on steroids. Well, to a great extent Bigil is exactly that. When Pink got remade into Tamil as Nerkonda Parvai, we saw Ajith trashing goons brutally and for anyone who has seen Pink, that kind of… Continue reading Bigil

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… Continue reading Asuran
