Gorilla (கொரில்லா)  starring Jiiva, Shalini Pandey (of Arjun Reddy fame) & Satish is a bank robbery film that goes wrong on all levels. I should’ve known better as the Director Don Sandy’s earlier film Mahabalipuram (2015) was equally poor. Gorilla (2019) had built-up hype with the news that a Chimpanzee is acting in the film and I was expecting some thrilling moments with the ape helping in the robbery, instead, the chimpanzee does a few irritating…

Gurkha (2019) starring Yogi Babu is a comedy film with an engaging story that you can enjoy if you switch off your logical brain, which I did, and I laughed along with rest of the audience in many places.

Thumbaa (2019) is an all-out film for the kids, a genre that has become rare in Tamil cinema and for that you need to appreciate the makers of the film – if you are seeing this with your children you will thoroughly enjoy Director Harish Ram’s debut film – otherwise, you will find it dull and difficult to sit through. For the former reason, it manages to get the Mangoidiots rating of “Raw” (2/4)! The…
