Maapla Singam Movie Review:

Baseline:

The main plot of the movie is about the ego clashes between two families of different villages.Mostly they are fighting for minor issues. The situation  gets complicated when the hero and heroine start liking each other.

Review:

After thoonga nagaram and kalakalapu in this film also Vimal and Anjali’s chemistry worked well. Vimal has been successful in rural-based films before and the director’s decision to cast him has worked out well as the hero has done his role with ease. The movie is lively at major parts even though it lags pace in the second hour. Overall, the movie has just turned out to be a simple comedy film, which might be liked by rural audience.

Kaadhalum kadandhu pogum movie review:

Baseline:

An IT girl unemployed suddenly. She gets the help of a gangster Vijaysethupathy.

Review:

Madonna Sebastian did the role of the IT girl. Suddenly the company which got closed and she has become unemployed. But her ego stops her to go to her hometown. So she decided to stay in a apartment situated in local area, where she met Vijaysethupathy. She gets the help of Vijaysethupathy to find new job.

There are some incidents happened to make both of them to love eachother. And after sometime they depart away.There is a twist in the climax when they both meet eachother.

As usual Vijaysethupathy portraits the charecter very well.This film revolves around the modern life of IT industries. Most of the scenes are predictable. Vijaysethupathy and Nalankumarasaamy combination works well as in the movie ‘Soothu Kavvum’.

pokirirajaPokiri Raja (Tamil)

Pokiri raja is a comedy action movie directed by Ramprakash Rayappa. starring Jiiva, Sibiraj and Hansika Motwani in the leading roles.

D.Imman is the music director.

Pokiri raja movie review:

Baseline:

A young man is having constant yawning trouble. He gets out of his jobs because of this problem. what are all the problems he faces because of this yawn and how he came out of the problem is the story.

Review:

The story revolves around Sanjeevi (Jiiva) and his yawns.Sanjeevi lends a helping hand to his colleague and girlfriend Sunita (Hansika)  in stopping men from urinating in public, he shames Cooling Glass Guna (Sibiraj, a commic villain) a gangster. Later on sanjeevi comes to know that his yawn is so powerful and it can shatter glass and throw peole off the ground and also it leads to Guna loosing his eyesight. Sanjeevi comes to know of the history behind the power of his yawn, but Guna, who has regained sight, wants revenge.

Rayappa wastes time with unnecessary songs, a comedy track that is as cliched as casting Mano Bala as an office boss, and a romantic track that is lazily written. The hero set his eyes on the white-skinned heroine and starts to take an interest in her; and when he sees her doing social work (something that most Tamil film heroines seem to do), he instantly falls in love with her.

Rayappa uses the yawning problem entirely for comic effect even into the climax, so the tone of the film remains light-hearted. Ultimately, it is such constant stream of laughs in the second half make up for a first half full of yawns.

Pichaikaran is an action movie directed by sasi and actors are Vijay Antony, Satna Titus, Deepa, Muthuraman, Bhagavathy Perumal.

Vijay Antony is the music director.

 

Pichaikaran movie review:

Baseline:

A rich man pretends as a begger man for 48 days in order to save his mother from the deathbed.

Review:

As in all vijay antony‘s film, here also he does ‘nt give any expression. Emotional scenes or action sequences he gives the same expressions. He succeed in selecting the scripts that perfectly suits him. In this movie vijay antony  is using a false identity as in ‘Naan’ movie. But ‘Naan’ was a thriller movie. This is a melodramatic action film that seems to be the actor’s first step in moving into the mass hero league

Arul(Vijay Antony), a multi-millionaire, whose mother Bhuvaneshwari (Deepa) ends up on her deathbed because of an accident. A godman tells him that he can save his mother if he can live as a beggar for 48 days without revealing his true identity. Arul decides to do so and becomes part of a group of beggars. He also strikes up a relationship with Maghilini (Satna Titus), the girl he had intended to marry, but doesn’t reveal his true self to her. Inbetween, he gets embroiled with gangsters and has to fight for life. And there is also his uncle (Muthuraman), who is hatching his own plans to take over his properties in his absence.

This is movie is like anti arunachalam. In that movie a poor man gets the money and pretend as a rich man to fulfill his father’s wish. Here a rich man pretends as a poor man to save his mother;s life.

This movie is a first step for Vijay Antony to become a mass here.

Kanithan is an action-thriller film written and directed by T. N. Santhosh and produced by S. Thanu. Atharvaa and Catherine Tresa in the lead roles.

Sivamani is the music director.

Kanithan Movie Review:

Baseline:

Atharva a soft romantic hero proves that he can do action scripts also. He is doing good in action sequences. Kanithan movie is totally different script for atharva.

Review:

Atharva plays a young and energetic news reporter for a modest TV where Manobala is playing a role of CEO. Atharva is falling in  love with catherin teresa who is daughter of manobala.(The CEO where Atharva works). In the mean time Atharva is getting selected in BBC and his life changes upside down. He and four other unconnected young men got arrested by the police for cheating with fake certificates and documents for 13 crores of loan from a private bank.

Atharva came out in bail and finds there is a fake certificate mafia run by a Burmese gangste.Tarun Arora as the Burmese gangster.The story continues how atharva finds and destroy the mafia. Atharvaa is a perfect fit for the role of the angry young man who uses his brains and brawn in equal measure and he has the right expressions for all the emotions, Catherin teresa needs to do more than roaming around the hero and dancing for songs.

Arvind Krishna’s cinematography is the biggest plus for the film while editor Bhuvan Srinivasan could have put the scissors to use in many scenes that seem never ending.Drums Sivamani in his second outing as music director has given some peppy numbers and the BGM by a newcomer is good with the drums dominating .  Full marks to the fight choreographer who has done a great job with all the fights

Watch ‘Kanithan’ for Atharvaa Murali and the well choreographed action sequences.

S.Thaman is the music director.

Aarathu sinam movie review:

Baseline:

The story of this movie is written by Jeethu Joseph who wrote the story of Drishyam in Malayalam a huge hit. This movie is crime thriller.It is a remake of Jeethu Joseph’s 2013 Malayalam hit, Memories. Supporting actors Radharavi, Tulasi, Charlie and Robo Shankar.

Review:

Aravind(Arulnidhi)a grieving cop,  lost his wife and kid, they were shot in front of his eyes. So he feels so depressed. At that time there are serial murders in the city. Radharavi, a wellwisher of aravind hand over this case to aravind to get him out from the depression. Aishwarya Rajesh appears briefly in the flashback scenes as Arulnithi’s loving wife. Aishwarya Dutta plays the upstanding journalist Varsha, with a soft corner for Aravind. But the director has thankfully chosen not to give a romantic twist to the story. How Aravind puts together all the pieces of the puzzle and tries to find the identity of the killer forms the rest of the story.

It is a sports drama film written and directed by Sudha Kongara. Starring R. Madhavan in the leading role as a boxing coach. Ritika Singh as boxer.

Santhosh Narayanan is the music director.

 

Irudhi sutru movie review:

Baseline:

A boxing coach with stern attitude selects a rebellious woman and her for the world championship. But they really had to fight outside the ring with the boxing politics.

Review:

The film begins with Prabhu (Madhavan), a  nonsense coach, being forced to move to Chennai due to internal politics in the boxing association. In Chennai, Prabhu comes across Madhi (Ritika Singh), a rowdy fisherwoman who has a natural talent for boxing, and whose sister, Lakshmi (Mumtaz Sorcar) is training for the boxing championship. Prabhu offers to teach Madhi, who is enthusiastic about the sport but is put off by the coach’s stern attitude. The two warm up to each other and Madhi even develops a crush on Prabhu. The story ends how madhi overcomes the problems and how prabhu proved the boxing association as a boxer.

Santhosh Narayanan’s music gives Sivakumar Vijayan’s cinematography a tough competition. Both combine together to give a very good treat  to the audience. ‘Irudhi Suttru’ will easily feature in the top ten films of the year.

Peigal Jaakirathai Movie review:

Baseline:

This movie revolves around jeeva rathnam who has near death experience could see ghosts

Review:

Saravanan (Jeeva rathnam)  an orphan  has attempted committing suicide 28 times. before he enters the scene, the story revolves around Pazhanivel Annachi (Thambi Ramaiah)whom everyone in the city is scared of.A doctor advises Annachi to have a man who isn’t afraid of death by his side and who better than a guy who has suicidal tendencies? Saravanan starts removing Annachi’s fear but has a near-death moment. From then, he realizes that he can see ghosts.And four ghosts follow him to Annachi’s house. What do they want and can he avoid  them?

Thambi Ramaiah is the big support in this film.We can see him trying hard to make it funny .And in the second half, the director brings in Rajendran, who, despite being a favourite these days, has very little to do.The comedy the works to an extent and it is what keeps us from getting bored

It is an action horror movie directed by Shakti Soundar Rajan. Starring Jayam Ravi and Lakshmi Menon in the leading roles.It is the second Tamil language zombie film after Vere Vazhi Ille.

D. Imman is the music director.

Miruthan movie review:

Baseline:

Miruthan is amalgamation of the words Mirugam and Manithan. It is a first attempt in Tamil cinema on zombies, although the name never gets mentioned in the film.

Review:

Jayam Ravi plays a traffic cop in Ooty where he lives with his sister Vidya (Baby Anikha). There was aoutbreak of a virus attack that was more dangerous than expected.

What happens later on? Is there a way out? Miruthan deals with all these answers.Jayam Ravi done well  in this film as a traffic cop. Lakshmi menon also has some scoring charecter as a doctor. There are some brother sister sentiment scene between jeyam ravi and baby Ankita.

The visual effects are appropriately done.The director must be appriciated for trying something new in tamil cinema. The second half is little slower.In Imman’s music Munnal Kadhali gets remembered.

For audiences who have not seen Hollywood zombie films, Miruthan would be a new experience

G.V. Prakash kumar is the music director.

 

Visaranai movie review:

Baseline:

It has been nine years for Vetrimaran the director of this film to prove his debut after polladhavan. He directed  two films, among that aadukalam is the award winner. And now visaranai movie is getting famous in international level.

Review:

‘Visaranai’  movie starts in an Andhra village with Pandi (Dinesh) who works in a local grocery store and stays with his friends (Murugadoss and two others) at the park. Pandi is in love with shanthi(Anandi) who works as a maid in a police officer’s home. Pandi and the others are arrested  by the police and asked to confess to robbing a police officer’s house and after repeatedly being beaten up they do so and are taken to court.An interesting twist occurs.

With the help of a Tamil Nadu Police officer Muthuvel (Samuthirakani) on duty they got released. Muthuvel asks  Pandi and his friends help and the grateful boys agree little knowing that they are headed towards a far worse fate than what they just experienced.

Dinesh lives in the role as Pandi. When he is tortures by the police his natural expressions are so pain full.Kishore as the wily auditor who ends up in police custody gives yet another splendid performance.Samuthirakani is becoming one of the most bankable character actors in the industry and here he has touched another peak  in his career.Aadukalam Murugadoss provides most of the comic relief.
