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.

Queen of Hearts (2019) was screened in the 17th Chennai International Film Festival. The Danish adult film was a Sundance award winner.

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…

The Naked Director (2019) is a Netflix Original TV Show from Japan. It is about the Adult magazine and then the Adult video industry in the 1980s Japan. We get to see the underbelly of the Japanese businesses, their nexus with the corrupt police officers and the dirty underground trade – a shocking revelation to what we outsiders consider being a disciplined country. What makes it standout from the other Rated R shows, is its strong casting and a powerful story of one man’s belief, struggle and success against all odds. A junior salesman Toru Muranishi cannot sell even a single…
