Putham Pudhu Kaalai

Putham Pudhu Kaalai

Review
Putham Pudhu Kaalai   A Tamil Anthology? Sounding the kollywood habitats to chill out with their loved ones. Five stories that lock’s you in front of prime. 5 best in the businesses, directed by Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Rajiv Menon, Sudha Kongara, Karthik Subbaraj and Gautham Vasudev Menon delivers the tales. Just some thoughts from my heart about the story is what at last you can narrate about it. A single sentence can excite you in unimaginable ways and that’s exactly what happened when Madhavan said in the voice over, “Like I said, nammala avanga epdi feel panna vekrangandradhu dhan matter; foolish, happy, and most importantly young”. What we have seen in many movies that, love can make us feel young but to this tale that literally translated on screen is really brilliant. ...

Walter

Walter

Review
Walter: Misses the plot Inspired by his father Sathyaraj's cop role in Walter, his son Sibiraj dons khakhi in action thriller Walter. A story of a senior police officer who investigates the missing of babies in a small town in Kumbakonam. There are baddies, sub-plots, and abundant action. Directed by U Anbarasan, the film begins well to end up loud and less convincing. A cliched ride eventually. But there are few action scenes that may please stunt-lovers. There is Shirin Kanchanwala who plays the heroine. Genre - Action thriller Cast - Sibiraj, Shirin Kanchanwala.

Dharala Prabhu

Dharala Prabhu

Review
Dharala Prabhu: Unlimited fun Doing a remake is no easy task. It has to capture the essence of the original. Three cheers to new director Krishna Marimuthu. He has managed to capture the essence of Bollywood hit Vicky Donor, released in 2012, well to deliver a good outing in Dharala Prabhu. Without tinkering too much with the original, Krishna Marimuthu has successfully reproduced Vicky Donor as Dharala Prabhu. A tough subject for Tamil audience but given well. Thanks to stupendous show by Vivekh, it passes the muster Genre - Comedy Cast - Harish Kalyan, Tanya Hope, Vivekh Music- Anirudh Ravichander Sean Roldan Vivek-Mervin Inno Genga Madley Blues Bharath Shankar Kaber Vasuki Oorka Production - Screen Scene Media Entertainment Direction: Krishna Marimuthu Run Time - 122 m...

Velvet Nagaram Review

Review
Velvet Nagaram: Action, Reaction Varalaxmi Sarathkumar has been the choice of filmmakers these days when they step out to do women-centric movies. Joining the list of movies that she did recently is Velvet Nagaram.  Helmed by debutant Manoj Kumar Natarajan, the movie is a thriller with Varalaxmi playing a journalist on a mission. She has emotion and action to do plenty in the film. She renders full justice to it. But that alone is not enough to elevate the script, which travels on a cliched path at many places. The director has tried to speak too many things including exploiting the livelihood and natural resources for the sake of development Genre - Action thriller Cast: Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Kasturi Shankar, Ramesh Tilak, Santhosh Krishna, Maalavika Sundar Music: Achu Rajamani ...
Gypsy Review

Gypsy Review

Review
Gypsy: A curate's egg Gypsy carried a lot of expectations on its shoulders as it is from the stable of filmmaker Raju Murugan, who made Joker before. Known for his works to talk strong and stern on social issues, Raju Murugan has tried to tread a similar path in Gypsy. Unfortunately, he seems to have lost his way a bit and the movie ends up neither here nor there. What begins as a musical journey of a gypsy witnesses romance and communal riots and it ends up with a string 'preachy' message. Gypsy features Jiiva, Natasha, Lal Jose, Sunny Wayne among others. Genre: Docu-drama Cast: Jiiva, Natasha Singh, Lal Jose, Sunny Wayne, and Susheela Raman Music: Santhosh Narayanan Cinemtography: SK Selvakumar Direction: Raju Murugan Run Time: 2hours 29 minutes Analysis The movie speaks abo...
Mafia

Mafia

Review
Mafia : Style & swag When he came out with Dhruvangal Pathinaru, he was called the next-gen filmmaker. The movie with an intriguing plot and technical finesse made it big. However, he suffered a setback in his next Naragasooran that is still to see the light of the day. However, came his next Mafia. And director Karthick Naren has proved that he is no one film wonder. A stylish action-packed drug dealer story, the movie is glossy and stylish. The scenes are so stylish that at places it takes over the story and script. Backed by a big production house like Lyca, the director seems to have enough freedom to capture his thoughts in grand. Arun Vijay plays the lead while there is a surprise in Priya Bhavani Shankar playing a different role. And there is impeccable actor Prasanna ...

Review
Naan Sirithal: Fun under the sun Hip Hop Tamizha Adhi is not just a busy composer but a successful actor too. Naan Sirithal is his third outing as a hero and unlike his earlier film, this provides him with a scope to bring out the actor in him. Inspired by a short film, Naan Sirithal is a fun-filled entertainer which has friendship, romance, action, and some comedy. A youngster has a rare disease. He laughs at emotional and difficult situations. It lands him greater trouble. He loses everything in life. What happens then forms the crux.

Review
Oh My Kadavule: All is fair in love Director Ashwath Marimuthu's maiden venture is a different rom-com backed by string writing. Interestingly all characters have a say in the story. It speaks more about love and friendship and dares the cliches in Tamil cinema. The movie revolves around Ashok Selvan, Ritika Singh and Vani Bhojan. And there is Vijay Sethupathi and Ramesh Thilak in extended cameos. Friends become a couple and enters the boy's ex-crush. Trouble begins and God comes with a different plan.

Review
Vaanam Kottatum: More drizzle, less downpour Expectations were high on the movie ever since it was announced by Mani Ratnam's Madras Talkies. Directed by Dhana, it boasts of some interesting names who proved their mettle in performance-driven roles. Rashika and Sarathkumar come together after a long gap while Vikram Prabhu, Madonna Sebastian, Aishwarya Rajesh, and Shanthanoo form part of the cast. Call it an emotional family drama. A single mother struggling hard to grow up her two kids after her husband goes to jail. The struggle of children growing up her knowing their father is a murderer and how the people looking at them. And what happens when the father is back seeking their love.   Release date: 7 February Cast: Sarathkumar, Radhika, Vikram Prabhu, Madonna Sebastian, Aishwa...

Review
Seeru: Anger & Agony Jiiva has immense acting potential and now and then he proved his skills with performance-oriented movies. But he met with mixed opinions both at the box office and critical acclaims. The actor has chosen to go the commercial way in Seeru. It is an action thriller written by Rekka fame Rathina Siva. Besides Jiiva, it stars Varun, Riya Suman too in the cast.

Naadodigal 2

Review
Naadodigal 2: Loud & Preachy Almost a decade ago came Naadodigal and Samuthirakani directorial that featured Sasikumar in the lead was a sleeper hit. With a different storyline, its sequel is out. The premise is different and making too. The movie is more an emotional drama and it is loaded with layers of messages as is the case in any Samuthirakani movie. In a nutshell, the movie is about a girl disclosing on the first night of her wedding to her hubby that she had loved someone and it is marriage out of compulsion by her parents. The kind-hearted man goes all the way out to help her reunite. An emotional drama begins. The premise is apt for Samuthirakani to unleash dialogues that are loaded with messages. Release Date  - 31 January 2020 Genre - Drama/Action Cast - Sasikumar,...
Dagaalty

Dagaalty

Review
Dagaalty: Tests our patience From a successful comedian, Santhanam took a gamble to turn a hero. Interestingly, the journey has been a bumpy one for Santhanam. Expectations soared high after his recent release A1, which managed a decent show at the box office. Now comes Dagaalty. But sadly it fizzles out to be a no-brainer. And  Dagaalty tests our patience in most places. In a nutshell, the movie is about a conman, who tries to save an innocent girl from a rich 'womanizer' after realizing that he has fallen for her. The plot is wafer-thin and the execution leaves one to squirm in their seats. The movie boasts of Radharavi, Yogi Babu, MS Baskar and Tarun Arora besides newcomer Rittika Sen. Release Date  - 31 January 2020 Genre - rom-com Cast - Santhanam, Rittika Sen, Tarun Arora, Ra...
