Falling Inn Love (2019) is a typical piecing together your life and reinventing it in a new country surrounded by new people story.  Gabriela (played by Christina Milian) who is an architect in San Francisco, loses her job, breaks-up with her boyfriend and lands up as the owner of an old bungalow in a small town in New Zealand. As you would’ve guessed, the first person she encounters is Jake (played by Adam Demos) with whom she starts in a wrong foot, learns his past, then partners to restore the inn and eventually fall in love. There are all the…

After noticing the director’s name T.N.Krishna, who directed Sillunu Oru Kaadhal (2006), I sat down to watch the Telugu film Hippi (2019). It is a difficult movie to describe, certainly not in a positive sense. The film starts off as a typical rom-com, with some enjoyable humour in the office scenes.

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 too – many scenes felt like you are reading a WhatsApp forward, or watching Life of Pi (2012) or reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.…

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 with each other. None of the scenes was convincing. The first arrow from her was to send a policeman to eliminate SKK – Police in…
