Thani Oruvan – The Lone Ranger…rocks!!!

Director: M Raja Cast: Jayam Ravi, Arvind Swamy, Nayantara, Vamsi Krishna Retribution time for the elder brother M.Raja who has been labeled as “remake raja” by the industry. This original, intelligent and smart thriller should also provide the younger brother Ravi a lease of life for daring to be different. And for those who have grown up seeing Arvind swami, ‘dumb struck again’ is what I would describe the experience as… The brilliance can be seen right from the way the scenes have been crafted, BGM and performances. Its been a while since the days of VV or Thupaaki wherein the audiences have cheered

Movie Review: Papanasam: is worth a dip

Director: Jeethu Joseph Stars: Kamal Haasan, Gautami, Niveda Thomas Despite the recall factor of the original,this remake reiterates the cinematic excellence of Jeetu Josephs vision. Kamal owns the role in his own inimitable way knowing very well that comparisons would be made to Mohanlal’s effort…So who is the better one? I would say the winner is the dishyam of the director! The emphatic pre climactic episode (highlight of the film) had Mohanlal giving out a towering and restrained performance with his booming voice echoing amidst the landscape while Kamal does the same justifying act with a terrific emotional touch. Spoilers (for those

Review: ABCD-2…reality show on a larger canvas!

Indian films based on the dance form genre have always struck a chord with the audience. Who can forget “aata hai chandrama”from Navrang or Mithun da in a silver tight suit proclaiming, “I am a disco dancer” or the dance of Kamala Hassan in Saagara Sangamam or Sudha Chandrans one legged show in Nache Mayuri. Even the romance kings – the Chopras tried it in DTPH, Aaja Nachle and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi…or the maverick RGV with Antara Mali in the highly seductive and forgettable Naach!!! All these movies rode high on EQ, star power and had a little bit

Tanu Weds Manu Returns – with a Bang!

This one is outrageously funny, laced with witty dialogues and astounding performances by the star cast. An insane and hilarious take on relationship with the moral of “Jhelo” – tolerate for whatever it’s worth it for… with some outstanding moments throughout the film. The screenplay blazes through till the clichéd pre-climax formalities but by then smiles are already ON making it overlook the blemished finale. Kangana steals the show and is sure to win awards (unless Dippy turns it on!) Coz here comes a straight from heart performance portraying a myriad of emotions- outlandish, rebellious, vulnerable and actualization acts. Madhavan

Movie Review: Dhoom 3: Not Worth A Penny

I took my time to watch Dhoom 3 as I felt for some reason that this is not worth a penny. But then it was Dhoom 3. The massive buzz that it had created pre-release made sure I was forced to watch it. This is my last review of 2013 and believe me it’s a pain writing this after all the headache and grogginess from the experience of watching the film. This year was a box office bonanza for Bollywood with more than 7 movies hitting the 100+Cr and 2 reaching 200+ Cr. From the money perspective I feel good

Total Recall 2013: Some Great Tracks As Far As Music Is Concerned

2013 brought some mellifluous music from Bollywood!! The focus was more on melody and some great tracks that fits the bill for often and repeat listening. Will stick to the romantic numbers than the popular ones like Badtameez dil, Lungi dance and party all night types. Tum Hi Ho– Aashiqui 2- Arijit Singh rocks in this romantic number with some meaningful lyrics. The song starts slowly and picks up pace gradually. Sun Raha hai na tu– Aashiqui 2- A melodious but highly under rated song sung by Shreya as well as Ankit Tiwari. Listen to it again as it touches

Movie Review: Satyagraha – It’s Just Okay!

Satyagraha – reminder of the “Lokpal” Andolan!!! Some good insights in “what could have transpired behind the scenes of Anna Hazare hunger strike”, great use of technology with focus on Social Media Marketing, minimal ‘gyaanbaazi’ though Jha had the platform to rake in ‘n’ number of issues and the brilliance of Bachchan… Corruption, politics and revolution huh…a poignant and helpless B speaks the angst in the climax “where is the nation headed as there is no one to hear us out…”True indeed as ‘aam junta‘ continues to suffer for there is nobody to listen to them. It is better to
