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 is elementary – Raghunathan is a multi-billionaire who has banished his daughter for marrying without his approval. After decades, he regrets and sends his grandson…

Star Trek Generations (1994) has two of the greatest captains of Star Trek Universe, Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), and a compelling story of a rogue scientist who threatens to destroy the galaxy, time travel and an extra-dimensional realm called Nexus, yet the film comes out as a mediocre and nothing a star trek fan will love. The film opens in the year 2293, where retired Starfleet officers including Captain Kirk have onboard as guests to the maiden voyage of USS Enterprise-B, unfortunately, due to a mishap, Captain Kirk loses his life in…

Petta (2019) starring Rajinikanth and Directed by Karthik Subbaraj will be a celebration for all. Enjoy the festival season with this film. When the film was announced it had a dozen plus star cast and I was a bit worried about how the Director will balance them all. To his credit Director has done a great job and almost all the actors fit their roles to a Tee. The songs by Anirudh Ravichander has already topped the charts for months, added to them were the well-done background score which maintained the beat of the film throughout. Rajini with his signature…

There are films that narrate a familiar story differently, there are some that deliver a new story in a familiar way and there are films that shamelessly offers a routine story in a predictable way – Viswasam (2019) starring Ajith Kumar, Nayanthara and directed by Siva is the third. To be fair, the film is not bad, it is sure to be a treat for Ajith fans, nothing more than that, and that’s the disappointment. Thooku Durai (Ajith) is a wealthy village landowner who is also the local “good” thug, Niranjana (Nayanthara) is a super-rich Doctor from Mumbai who comes…

Adanga Maru (2018) starring Jayam Ravi as Police S.I. Subash and Raashi Khanna, is a routine revenge story being told briskly. Subash is a recent recruit and finds it difficult getting used to the casual attitude of his superiors, in a rape and murder investigation he acts recklessly which gets his entire family murdered. How he revenges the bad guys for their death is the story. Jayam Ravi has done his lead role adequately. Music Composer Sam C.S. has given good melodies and has supported the film with a memorable background score. The twin girls were cute and lovely. What…
