Natpe Thunai (2019) starring Hiphop Tamizha, is an average rom-com with sports action thrown in. You will find nothing new here, yet the film was amusing and Director D. Parthiban Desingu can feel pleased about that. The movie starts with a narration of a pre-independence incident resembling Aamir Khan’s Lagaan (2001), with British replaced with French as the happening was in Pondicherry, and, Cricket replaced with Hockey.  Then it travels as a routine hero-heroine love,…

102 Not Out (2018) had many reasons to intrigue me – story of how a centenarian and his septuagenarian go about with their lives – starring two of the doyens of modern-day Hindi Cinema – Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor- directed by Umesh Shukla whose earlier film Oh My God! (2012) I liked a lot.  I guess I waited for too long for it to be released with English subtitles in Chennai, then I forgot – today, I…
