Dulquer Salmaan starring Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal [கண்ணும் கண்ணும் கொள்ளையடித்தால்] was a thorough entertainer. Starting as a typical love story, it morphs into a conman story – Director Desingh Periyasamy has managed the transition effortlessly – I totally didn’t expect the twist. The first thirty minutes when Sid (Dulquer Salmaan) falls in love with Meera (Ritu Varma) was fresh and interesting. The sequences showing online eCommerce fraud were mostly plausible, similarly was the “car” thefts. The climax theft though a bit far-fetched kept you engaged and that’s enough for a feature film. Dulquer Salmaan as done his role as a loverboy well, the heroine…

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…

It is enough to say the stars of this film are the legendary Jim Carrey and the gorgeous Kate Winslet. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) is the Academy Award winner for the Best Original Screenplay that you shouldn’t miss. The film shows how true love never fails, even when the couple themselves take stupid decisions to end it. Clementine Kruczynski and Joel Barish are polar opposite characters, the former being spontaneous and impulsive, while the latter is a thinker and mild-mannered. They both meet in a party and hit it instantly. After dating for sometime, Clementine breaks up…

Queen of Hearts (2019) was screened in the 17th Chennai International Film Festival. The Danish adult film was a Sundance award winner. The story is a familiar one of an older woman seducing an underage boy. Whether it is the classic The Graduate (1967) or The Reader (2008) these licentious relationships start for fun and no one getting hurt till they are secretive, but they don’t remain so for long. What shouldn’t have started at all, always ends badly, it does so in Queen of Hearts too! Directed by May el-Toukhy and the lead cast are Trine Dyrholm as Anne,…

Because of the blockbuster songs Maruvaarthai and Visiri by Darbuka Siva, this film was eagerly anticipated by fans. Enai Noki Paayum Thota (2019) is a typical film from Director Gautham Vasudev Menon. There are fantastic songs, intense romance, police, gangsters, and, of course, Mumbai. It feels like I have watched “Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada” v2 staring a different lead couple. There is nothing new in ENPT and you leave the theatre unimpressed. The entire film is shouldered by Dhanush, who has done a voiceover throughout with nothing left for other characters to act or speak – not even the heroine Megha Akash or…
