Kaapaan (காப்பான்) was an action thriller with big dreams but little to show. Compared to the recent films of actor Suriya, this one by Director K V Anand feels better and that itself is a big stretch. The first half was quite engaging, with Suriya playing a government secret agent tasked with saving Prime Minister’s life in London and then in Kashmir – the locations and the camerawork were beautiful. We are impressed with the screen presence of Mohanlal who comes as India’s Prime Minister. Sadly, it is downhill after the interval – Arya being given little to do and hence he…

Sivappu Manjal Pachai (meaning Red, Orange & Green indicating Traffic Signals) is a film that will easily be forgotten. Actor Siddharth has delivered a wonderful performance, mature and composed, and it is unfortunate Director Sasi has wasted that in a film with a dreary second-half. The film starts well as a sentiment story of a girl and her younger brother, who grew up alone after losing their parents, reminding us of Meyaadha Maan (2017). Then the first-half transforms into a conflict between the two important males in the life of that lady (played by Lijomol Jose) – her lover (played by…

Jackpot (2019) is a comedy film starring Jyothika and Revathi, who come as con artists, cheating people of their money. While at the prison following an arrest, they learn of a magic pot, that is buried in the house of Anandaraj – how they get it from there is rest of the film. In their various attempts, they are helped by ‘Motta’ Rajendran and Yogi Babu. The screenplay is completely nonsensical. Director Kalyaan’s earlier film Gulaebaghavali (2018) was a lot better and enjoyable. Jyothika has done the fight sequences very well, kudos to her – and if that’s enough for…

Sixer (2019) is a feature film version of a popular comedy sequence of Actor Goundamani from Chinnathambi (1991). Just like how Goundamani tries hard to hide his night blindness from his love interest, Vaibhav Reddy in Sixer plays all tricks to win over Pallak Lalwani by keeping his illness as a secret. With just a one-line story, Director Chachi has managed to give an enjoyable film by bringing in a villain character, some friction and a good bit of action. Switching off your logical thinking for two hours, you can come out light-hearted! Actor Sathish as Vaibhav’s friend, veteran Radharavi as…

Chennai Palani Mars (சென்னை பழனி மார்ஸ்) is a film about a hero dreaming of travelling to Mars by his thoughts and some brilliant formulae. Written by Actor Vijay Sethupathi and Biju Viswanath, this could’ve been an out-of-the-world film, instead, it fails to even cross the locality.  Please stay away from this film and save your time. The film benefits from good camera work which sets the mood perfectly and aided by upbeat musical scores. The writers have set up a good premise – a brilliant scientist who is also a drug-addict, another drug addict who is a  talented singer, a…
