Uriyadi 2 (2019) retains the same rawness that made Uriyadi (2016) a silent hit. While the first film was about college and cast rowdyism, this was about innocent villagers lives being lost due to the ugly nexus of greedy businessmen and corrupt politicians. I found myself being agitated in many places as it was disturbingly resembling the current state of affairs in Tamil Nadu (like in the Sterlite factory issue). The realism of the scenes…

Kesari (2019), a Bollywood film starring Akshay Kumar, is based on the brave “Battle of Saragarhi” in 1897. It was a heroic battle with an unimaginable imbalance of odds between the fighting parties – a battle of 21 soldiers of the Sikh Regiment of the British Army against the nearly 10,000 tribesmen from Afghanistan in 1897. Kesari was an engaging and well-made film that sheds light on the pages of history unknown to many outside…

A Doctor during one of his scavenging sessions in the local scrapyard discovers a female cyborg…

I am unable to decide whether வந்தா ராஜாவாதான் வருவேன் (2019) was a spoof (on what?) or a failed comedy. Director Sundar C, is known for casting a large number of actors in his films, this one too has Silambarasan, Prabhu, Ramya Krishnan, Nassar, Radha Ravi, Robo Shankar, VTV Ganesh, Yogi Babu and Catherine Tresa, Megha Akash and many others. Unfortunately, due to a sloppy screenplay, none of them gets to leave an impression. The story…
