Let Him Go Movie Review

“Let Him Go” is like if Liz Cheney made a movie. Kevin Costner and Diane Lane act the hell out of this preposterous thriller that somehow manages to be nail bitingly exciting. They play good conservative Americans, the kind that own guns but use them responsibly to do things like shoot sick horses, and are really good at baking pies. Their son dies tragically and … Continue reading Let Him Go Movie Review

With a rural milieu that Siva is more comfortable with, the first half is … Continue reading ANNATHE – MOVIE REVIEW

JAI BHIM – MOVIE REVIEW (AMAZON PRIME)

Written and directed by T.J. Gnanavel and produced by 2D Entertainment. JAI BHIM gets an OTT release TJG had earlier written and directed KOOTATHIL ORUVAN. Based on a true incident that happened in 1993 of police sadism, the film begins without wasting time in establishing its contours. The deferential beginning is endearing as the movie slowly loosens its cannons and then on its bedlam. Not … Continue reading JAI BHIM – MOVIE REVIEW (AMAZON PRIME)
