The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir (2019) starring Dhanush is a feel-good movie that is a story of a young boy “Aja”, living in a Mumbai slum growing up and succeeding in life. If this sounds like Slumdog Millionaire, you are partially wrong. Grown-up Aja goes to Paris, then life takes him to London, Barcelona, Rome & Libya – in every place he gets help from unexpected quarters and there is a touching love story…

Mr. Local (2019) is a film that you can avoid. Director M. Rajesh has made a low-quality copy of Rajinikanth’s Mannan (1992) for 2019. The Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara starrer makes you tiresome. Nayanthara is a self-made millionaire running a successful television studio, SKK is an employee with a local car dealership. Their paths cross due to a traffic signal bug, followed by Nayanthara trying (unsuccessfully) to get rid of SKK and finally they fall in love…

The film centres around a Punjabi girl Rumi Bagga (played by Taapsee Pannu, whose last Tamil films were Kanchana 2 (2015) and Vai Raja Vai (2015)) living in a joint family in Amritsar. She is in love with her boyfriend…

How much ever we may comment on all romantic comedies being the same and silly, quite often we watch one – and we come out feeling good and that’s what a good romcom can do. Isn’t It Romantic (2019) is one such film. Natalie is a successful architect working in New York, she is single and has low self-esteem about herself. One of her coworkers Josh has feelings for her, which both don’t share with…
