Sathru is a functional cop thriller which has its moments, watchable for the racy presentation

"Sathru" belongs to the antagonist Lagubaran who is menacing with his looks, dialogue delivery and body language. Kathir is just average as a powerful cop.

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" is thin on plot and purpose. The director almost equates feminism with smoking and alcohol addiction.

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" as the format is designed to their taste. Performance wise, both Umapathy and Kavya are just average.

Kudos to Chezhiyan to make a movie like this at a time when all his contemporaries are focusing on commercial masala movies!

"To Let" is a gripping, realistic film. Santhosh Sreeram and Sheela are perfect as the lead couple and their towering performances are the film’s biggest strength.

Kanne Kalaimaane's script lacks depth, is extremely slow and has a docu-feel with preachy lines about farming, bank loans, NEET exams...

The script of "Kanne Kalaimaane" lacks depth. Udhay is perfect as Kannan though he is overshadowed by the rest of the cast.

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.

'Sarvam Thaala Mayam' is the best musical made in Tamil cinema

"Sarvam Thaala Mayam" has a simple, uncomplicated storytelling that leaves a smile on your face. GV Prakash is earnest and sincere! Nedumudi Venu is fabulous.

Dhillukku Dhuddu 2 belongs to Santhanam. Fans of the first part will enjoy this more

Rajendran-Santhanam combination is the biggest strength of "Dhillukku Dhuddu 2". This film made us realise how much we have missed Santhanam's comedy in Tamil cinema

Ajith is endearing and is in tremendous form that the actor looks super energetic as Thooku Durai

Siva has packaged the first half as a family drama. The director also places enough elements to satisfy Thala Ajith’s fans with superb action scenes, mass punch lines, comedy and songs in "Viswasam".

Karthik Subbaraj uses the Baasha formula of a gangster who is hiding his identity

"Petta" is an out and out Rajinikanth show. Despite looking aged, the actor impresses us with his impeccable energy level. Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin are an added attraction.

Seethakathi is yet another showcase of director Balaji Tharaneetharan’s quality as a filmmaker with quirky, original ideas

This quirky film has soul and is also high on fun and emotions. Give it a shot, if you are a connoisseur of good cinema.
