Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terminator has been one of the popular Sci-Fi franchises of the 80s and the 90s. Last year, when it got released the latest in the series – Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) didn’t get great reviews, so I watched it only now and it turned out to be an average affair. It is available on Disney+ Hotstar. The movie brings no ‘fresh’ ideas, so it was not as much fun as Terminator 2 (1991) or Terminator (1984). Coming only in the second half as a retiree living a family life, Arnold Schwarzenegger has got a limited scope and…

I wish Sibiraj and Director U.Anbarasan had worked harder with Walter (வால்டர்). They had a lot riding on the title that established his father (Sathiyaraj) as a main stream hero, sadly they have failed. The movie had most of the right ingredients – a reasonable story for an action film, two good supporting actors Samuthirakani & Nutty Natarajan, and, an convincing villain character – yet as a finished product the film fails to engage you. This story was (obviously) about an honest police office Walter (played by Sibiraj) who goes about investigating a series of newborn baby kidnappings. I felt…

The young director Karthick Naren gave an unexpected hit thriller with his debut film Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru (2016). It was unfortunate that the release of his second film Naragasooran has remained stuck for more than two years. Despite that, he has managed to make (t)his third film – Mafia: Chapter 1 (2020), best wishes to him. Starring Arun Vijay and Prasanna, Mafia: Chapter 1 is a familiar action story of a Police Investigator vs Drug leader. The screenplay didn’t have anything innovative, yet it manages to keep us from getting tired due to an engaging background score by Jakes Bejoy and…

Seeru (சீறு) is a thorough brawn fight film coupled with sister sentiment and a bit of love. The movie started well, then drifted to becoming worse, to suddenly recover the lost ground and end with a pukka commercial climax. The story is about the hero (Jiiva) going after the bad elements in his town, and, then risking his life to save a serial murderer who had helped his sister at a critical moment. While doing it he brings down the powerful and also saves other “sisters” from the clutches of evil; Thank god there were no sexual torture incidents in…

Vaanam Kottattum is a nice film that takes an oft-repeated storyline and makes it engaging. The pace of the screenplay which didn’t dwell on any single happening for long, emotional dialogues that work, the impressive acting by the five lead actors  (Raadhika, Sarathkumar, Vikram Prabhu, Aishwarya Rajesh and Balaji Sakthivel) have turned an ordinary film to one worthy of your time. The story is about two kids growing up with their mother while their father is serving his prison term for murder being realistically told, along with a thread of revenge by the son of the killed man. Yes, there…
