LIFT

LIFT

Review
Lift (Tamil) Cast: Kavin, Amritha Aiyer, Kiran Konda Director: Vineeth Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery Runtime: 2Hr 14min Synopsis: One of today's most appalling truths is how companies use talented young people as a product. In the past, a number of cases have opened up the suffocating culture that puts the youth under immense strain. Lift, directed by Vineeth Varaprasad, is a horror film about a haunted lift and the office of a corporate firm. The best aspect of the film is that it is not your typical horror fare, which relies heavily on scary faces and jump-cuts accompanied by a screechy background score. Its unusual premise of a haunted corporate office adds much-needed freshness, and the unusual feature remains the film's driving force throughout. Review: The f...
Tughlaq Durbar

Tughlaq Durbar

Review
Tughlaq Durbar Director: Delhiprasad Deenadayalan Writer: Balaji Tharaneetharan Cast: Vijay Sethupathi, Raashi Khanna, Parthiban, Manjima Mohan, Sathyaraj, Karunakaran Language: Tamil Synopsis: Vijay Sethupathi's Tughlaq Durbar, in which he stars, has an intriguing premise. This theory holds that the protagonist and antagonist are just two sides of the same story. Delhi Prasad Deenadayalan, on the other hand, has no desire to develop this idea into a more compelling storey. Because of this, despite its basic writing, Tughlaq Durbar is a boring movie. It had the potential to be an amusing comedy of manners, but it chose not to go down that route. Review:  While reading, we'll be keeping tabs on the story's hero Singam (also known as Singaravelan). After his mother ...

In no time, she'll be starring alongside Tamil matinee idol MJR in a film (Arvind Swamy, formerly known as MGR). Despite his marriage to Janaki Ramachandran, MGR maintains a close relationship with Jayalalithaa. He en...

Review
Navarasa   Directors: Arvind Swami, Gautham Vasudev Menon, , Priyadarshan, Sarjun KM, Karthick Naren, Karthik Subbaraj, Vasanth, Rathindran Prasad, Bejoy Nambiar Synopsis: Navarasa, a nine-emotion anthology, is now accessible on Netflix, and it's a complete letdown given the calibre of performers assembled. Four of the nine episodes are below average, three are moderately entertaining, and the remaining two are just average. The film industry's initiative to contribute to the well-being of its employees, known as Navarasa, is a praiseworthy one.   Summer of 92 (Emotion- Haasyam) Priyadarshan directed this short film, which is based on a true storey. The film is reminiscent of the Malayalam comedy Katha parayumbol, in which Veluswamy (Yogi Babu), who is now a well-k...
