Darbar (2020) is an all-out Rajni’s cop film. Throughout the film, Superstar is stylish and his energy level is infectious. Director Murugadoss has given a new year treat to Rajni fans. Beyond that, there is nothing good to be told about the film. The film starts with Aadhithya Arunachalam (Rajinikanth), a supercop, being sent to Mumbai by India’s home minister to rid the city of its drugs and child trafficking. How come Delhi appoint a city’s police commissioner? Maybe, it is an indication to the viewers that the screenplay will be devoid of any logic. The first case of a…

Hero (2019) starring Sivakarthikeyan was on expected lines – a disillusioned young man, taking on the corrupt ‘education’ system and exposing its underbelly – unfortunately there was nothing new being told, or told briskly. The second-half turned out to be dull and made us look forward to the end. Director P. S. Mithran seems confused – whether to show Sivakarthikeyan’s as a super-hero, or to be only a prodigy of Gentleman (1993) Kicha, or as an ordinary man turned to be revolting against the system. From the start, the hero keeps losing to the villain, gets rescued by Arjun who…

Because of the blockbuster songs Maruvaarthai and Visiri by Darbuka Siva, this film was eagerly anticipated by fans. Enai Noki Paayum Thota (2019) is a typical film from Director Gautham Vasudev Menon. There are fantastic songs, intense romance, police, gangsters, and, of course, Mumbai. It feels like I have watched “Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada” v2 staring a different lead couple. There is nothing new in ENPT and you leave the theatre unimpressed. The entire film is shouldered by Dhanush, who has done a voiceover throughout with nothing left for other characters to act or speak – not even the heroine Megha Akash or…

There are films that turn to be a disappointment half-way through, and, then there are films like Sangathamizhan (சங்கத்தமிழன்) which don’t even try to be interesting. I am surprised how a talented actor like Vijay Sethupathi agreed to an unoriginal slapdash script like this! Murugan (Vijay Sethupathi) is an aspiring actor living in a housing board flat with his father and sisters. He falls in love with Raashi Khanna, who as you would’ve guessed is the daughter of a ruthless, super-rich businessman (Villain 1) who wants to build a polluting copper factor near a village in Tamil Nadu. In his double…

Bigil (பிகில்) was certainly a Deepavali treat for Vijay fans, they have been served with not one, but with nearly three stories for the price of one 3-hour long film. There is little to no connection with the first half and the second half of the film. Why should Director Atlee care for those details, when he has successfully given a “hero” film. The film’s second half has its heart in the right place, with its strong woman empowerment message coming from a mass-hero like Vijay its impact to change peoples heart is immense. Just for that, you need to…
