MAANADU – MOVIE REVIEW

MAANADU is produced by Suresh Kamatchi and written and directed by Venakat Prabhu. The film was to release for Diwali and had to undergo tense moments before it got released today.

There is a communal angle … Continue reading MAANADU – MOVIE REVIEW

SABAPATHY – MOVIE REVIEW

Produced by RK Entertainment SABATHY is yet another continued tryst for Santhanam to be one among the bankable stars of Kollywood. There is a sense of average expectation that is usually associated with Santhanam films and this film is no surprise. The film is as evident based on a handicap and yet behaves arrogantly when it showers senseless humour on the rest. Like most so … Continue reading SABAPATHY – MOVIE REVIEW

DHAMAKA – MOVIE REVIEW(NETFLIX)

Produced by RSVP movies, DHAMAKA is a remake of 2013 Korean film “TERROR LIVE”. The film was initially supposed to be a heroine centric film, but then due to casting difficulties the makers turned it into a hero centric film.

ANNATHE – MOVIE REVIEW

Sun Pictures produces this film that is written and directed by Siva. After Siva’s continuous association with Ajith for 4 films, Siva teams up with Rajinikanth for this 200 crore plus big budget film. Siva’s strength is his uncomplicated straight line script that rarely crosses the boundaries that he sets up. With a rural milieu that Siva is more comfortable with, the first half is … Continue reading ANNATHE – MOVIE REVIEW
