"Mr Local" is a mindless comedy that plays up the image of two big stars, Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara.
Vellai Pookal is an engaging thriller which is sure to encourage filmmakers to make more films in this genre
'Vellai Pookal' is definitely a giant leap for Vivek whose heroic films didn’t fare much at the box office and there wasn’t much critical acclaim as well. Here the actor can opt for unique characters and not just the stereotypical comedy roles alone.
Natpe Thunai well-intentioned and is an engaging watch. But it never rises above that to become a film that could truly make a difference
What holds your attention in the end of Natpe Thunai is the gripping climax hockey match scenes that are filmed effectively
Super Deluxe review: Kudos to Vijay Sethupathi and Samantha who has put in the best performance as Shilpa and Vaembu
What works for Oviya in 90ML is that her character stays true to her off-screen image which was established through Bigg Boss show
90ML review: Tthe director has tried to convey a lot of issues like alcoholism and drug culture that exists in today’s society.
Cheran uses lengthy dialogues and songs to convey his thoughts thorugh Thirumanam which often tests our patience
Audiences who are glued to TV serials may end up liking Thirumanam one as the format is catered to their appetite. Performance wise, both Umapathy and Kavya are just adequate. Cheran, veteran actors like Thambi Ramaiah and MS Baskar are superb in their roles.
What really works in favour of LKG is the film's satirical take on contemporary murky politics in the country. Balaji’s comical timing and his image is another big advantage.
LKG review: Its timely release, jokes and message is an eye opener for all young voters.
Kudos to Chezhiyan to make a movie like this at a time when all his contemporaries are focusing on commercial masala movies!
To Let review: At the end of the film, we only pray for the family to get a peaceful life and a good place
Karthi's 'Dev' ends up being a tiring watch. Karthi has tried hard to look convincing as Dev and carries the film entirely on his shoulder
'Dev' goes for over-the-top emotions, and basically chooses loudness over subtlety. Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishnan are reduced to mere sidekicks to show up at regular intervals to utter some cliched lines.
Hats off to Mammootty who admirably sheds his energetic heroism and displays all his acting might here
Charlie Chaplin-2 is a film for audiences who don't care much about the logic, quality or a coherent script
If you are someone who loves to watch slapstick comedies and laugh along with the crowd, Charlie Chaplin 2 is your kind of film! The first half tests our patience with a lot of flaws including poor lip-sync, bad editing and lame jokes. Thankfully the second half is better (in comedy department). As usual, Prabhu Deva is eye pleasing with his dance moves but just cannot carry a film entirely on his shoulders.
Petta is an out and out Rajinikanth show. Despite looking aged, the actor impresses us with his impeccable energy level. Solid supporting cast of Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin are an added attraction. Bobby Simha, Sanath, Sasikumar, Munishkanth, and Megha Akash are just okay.
