Android Kunjappan Version 5.25 was an engaging film that you shouldn’t miss. It is about a Robot named “Android Kunjappan” that is tested to take care of an octogenarian Mr Bhaskara Poduval. Unlike what you will expect to see the Robot to be just a gimmick, here it was central to the screenplay and the team has produced a convincing visualization. Mr Bhaskaran played brilliantly by Suraj Venjaramoodu, is a conservative old man who has lived a simple life in a small town on his own terms. When his grown-up son, an engineer, Subrajmannyan (played by Soubin Shahir) takes up…

Gandhi (Hiphop Tamizha Aadhi)  is introduced to be a young man with strange behaviour. After nearly an hour, we learn it his Pseudobulbar disturbance making him laugh uncontrollably when he gets extremely upset or afraid. Yes, I know we had seen movies like Pokkiri Raja (2016) on similar themes. With an interesting plot like this, you would not be mistaken for expecting a funny film. Instead, Naan Sirithal (2020) turned out to be a regular poor-boy, rich-girl themed film with elements of mistaken identity due to a common name: Dilli Babu, a ruthless gangster and Gandhi’s friend (played by Yogi…

It has become a rarity to see an entertaining movie with a simple story that makes you laugh and generally have a good time. Oh My Kadavule (2020) was a movie that delivered that and only that. The film is about the hero getting a second chance to fix his love life. We see have this in Time-Travel (SCI-FI) films and in films like Click (2006) but OMK comes out fresh due to its simplicity.  Arjun (Ashok Selvan), Anu (Ritika Singh) & Mani (Sha Ra) are close friends from childhood days. After completing their engineering together, one day Anu suddenly…

Dagaalty aka Dackalti (2020) is supposed to be an action-comedy film. It turned out to be having neither of them. The film starts with a Chandamama era scene of a villain (can be seen as an evil king) drawing the image of his dream girl and tasking his sidekicks to go in search of her. Our hero, a petty thief stumbles on the girl, tricks her to accompany him and then “sells” her to the villain, only to rescue her in the climax. If reading these two sentences is wearying, imagine watching it for two hours! I like Santhanam as…

Taana (2020) starring Vaibhav, Nandita Swetha and Yogibabu is a comedy film, that fails at every level. It is about a youngster wanting to join the police force and is unable to do so due to an ’embarrassing’ health issue. Shakti (Vaibhav) hails from a family of policemen with his great-grandfather being worshipped as a village deity for saving the villagers from murderous pirates during the British times. Unfortunately, Shakti is unable to join the police force due to his voice turning feminine whenever he gets angry, excited, or emotional. Though he excels in sports and is smart, due to…
