MAARA REVIEW   DIRECTED BY: Dhilip Kumar CAST: Madhavan as Manimaaran (a) Maara Shraddha Srinath as Parvathi (a) Paaru Sshivdha as Kani Mouli as Vellaiya Alexander Babu as Thief SYNOPSIS: Paaru, an independent woman gets intrigued by the artworks on a wall illustrated by Maara and decides to track him down. What made her go head over heels for the illustration and what awaits them forms the crux of the story. REVIEW: This film is adapted from the movie ‘CHARLIE’ released on 2015, starring Dulquer Salman and Parvathy. The colour theme for both Paaru and Maara has worked out perfectly. The resemblance of these characters and the parallelism was mastered by the team. The cast has done their job to perfection. The music makes you travel with the lives of the char...

Cast:  Prakash Raj, Kalki Koechlin, Kalidas Jayaram, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Sai Pallavi, Anjali, Simran, Adithya Bhaskar.   We are in a land that has seen many evil practices like Sati, Child Marriages, and female infanticides. It took ages to eradicate practices like Sati due to relentless fight by many progressive-minded people. But unfortunately, the inhuman practices of female infanticide and child abuse continue in many parts with new unethical practices emanating in the name of pride and honour as indicated by recent incidents that took place across the country. There is a Burmese Proverb th...

Silence – Do I see a Hollywood short film? Movie: Silence   Directed by: Hemant Madhukar Genre:  Horror, Mystery, Thriller Principal Cast: Madhavan as Anthony Anushka Shetty as Shakshi  Anjali as Maha Michael Madsen as Richard Dawkins  Subbaraju as Vivek Shalini Pandey as Sonali Writing Credits: Hemant Madhukar, Kona Venkat (Screenplay) Language: Tamil Duration: 126 min  Synopsis: An usual dark past for the victim, who is then killed in a haunted villa. The story resembles wholly about the murder and its twist and turns.  Review: The movie eventually started with a good note by showcasing what’s the whole plot is about. As slowly the characters get bound to the action, it failed to focus on the storyline. Hemant Madhukar,...

Searching Directed by: Aneesh Chaganty Writing Credits: Aneesh Chaganty, Sev Ohanian Cast: John Cho as David Kim Debra Messing as Detective Rosemary Vick Joseph Lee as Peter Michelle La as Margot Genre:  Drama, Mystery, Thriller Cinematographer: Juan Sebastian Baron Editor: Will Merrick Composer: Torin Borrowdale Runtime: 102 min Language: English   Synopsis: We’ve seen this gimmick before: the high-wire act of setting a movie entirely within the confines of electronic devices, allowing us to feel as if we’re logging in, clicking, and typing along with the characters in real-time. Structuring a film this way is impressive as an ambitious screenwriting exercise if nothing else. It also gives filmmakers the opportunity to embrace technology ...
Naan Sirithal

Naan Sirithal

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. Cast: Hip Hop Tamizha Adhi, Iswarya Menon, KS Ravikumar, Ravi Mariya Music: Hip Hop Tamizha Adhi Cinematography: Vanchinathan Editing: Sreejith Sarang Production: Avi Films Sundar C Direction: Raana Run Time: 2 hours 33 minutes Highlights Th...

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. Cast: Ashok Selvan, Rithika Singh, Vani Bhojan, Vijay Sethupathi Editing: Boopathy Selvaraj Music: Leon James Production: Happy High Pictures Direction: Ashwath Marimuthu Run Time: 2 hours 34 minutes What's Good? Ashok Selvan who acted in serious roles before dons a differen...

MOVIE REVIEW: PARASITE   Director: Bong Joon-Ho Duration: 2hr 12minutes Genre: Drama, Thriller, Rated R Writing Credits: Bong Joon-Ho, Han Jin-won Cast: Song Kang-Ho - Kim Ki-taek Lee Sun-Kyun - Park Dong-ik Cho Yeo-Jeong - Yeon-Kyo (Mr.Park's wife) Perk So-dam - ki-Jung (Ki-taek's daughter) Choi woo-shik - Ki-woo (Ki-taek's son)   Synopsis : "Parasite" - Most daring examination of the structural inequity that has come to define the world. It is a tonal juggling act that first feels like a satire—a comedy of manners that bounces a group of lovable con artists off a very wealthy family of awkward eccentrics. Can the poor just step into the world of the rich? Review: Kim Ki-woo (Choi woo-sik) with his family lives in the basement of apa...
