KODIYIL ORUVAN – MOVIE REVIEW

Infiniti Film Ventures produce this film that is written and directed by “METRO” fame Ananda Krishnan. Like the title the film has all the trappings of an over the top mass commercial entertainer, but does it take off? With Vijay Antony as the hero the title sounds very bizarre. The first ten minutes is spent eulogizing the hero and that’s such a dampener to begin … Continue reading KODIYIL ORUVAN – MOVIE REVIEW

DIKKILONA (TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW

DIKKILONA is produced by KJR studios and is written and directed by Karthik Yogi. After marauding horror films with comedy, Kollywood now pulverizes science fiction with comedy.

LAABAM (TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW

LAABAM is produced by Vijay Sethupathi productions and is written and directed by the late Jananathan. The film is a posthumous release.

LAABAM suffers from egregious execution and horrendous screenplay. The characters are sketchy and the narration … Continue reading LAABAM (TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW

THALAIVI (TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW

Produced and distributed by Zee studios THALAIVI is directed by Vijay and written Madan Karky. THALAIVI gets a delayed theatre and OTT release because of the then elections and the pandemic later.

Slowly it … Continue reading KASADA TABARA (TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW(SONY LIV)
