SARAPATTA PARAMBARAI(TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW(AMAZON PRIME)

SARAPATTA PARAMBARAI is co-produced by Ranjith’s Neelam Productions along with K9 studios. Ranjith has written and directed this period sports film. The film was supposedly to be done by Surya and later Arya was cast in the lead role. It must have been comforting for Ranjith to get Rajinikanth off his back after their successive collaboration in KABALI and KAALA. The film begins predictably, but … Continue reading SARAPATTA PARAMBARAI(TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW(AMAZON PRIME)

JAGAME THANDHIRAM – MOVIE REVIEW(NETFLIX)

Produced by YNOT Studios and Relaince Entertainment and distributed by NETFLIX, this film is written and directed by Karthik Subbaraj whose previous bumper hit film “PETTA” had Rajinikanth playing the hero. The story of JAGAME THANDHIRAM is surprisingly wishy-washy as you can get from someone as canny as Karthik Subburaj. There is no effort whatsoever in the script to make it remotely nifty. The scenes … Continue reading JAGAME THANDHIRAM – MOVIE REVIEW(NETFLIX)

PARAMAPADHAM(TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW (DISNEY HOTSTAR)

Produced by 24HOURS Productions PARAMAPADHAM is written and directed by Thirugnanam. The film was supposed to have a theatre release in February and various factors has led to an OTT release.

The characters are caricatures that … Continue reading PARAMAPADHAM(TAMIL) – MOVIE REVIEW (DISNEY HOTSTAR)

KARNAN – MOVIE REVIEW

Kalaipuli Thanu’s V CREATIONS produces this film that is written and directed by Mariselvaraj. Mariselvaraj’s Pariyerum Perumal garnered good reviews from the critics while in this film Mariselvaraj takes the commercial route with a huge star in Dhanush to fight “Oppression”.

SULTHAN – MOVIE REVIEW

SULTHAN – MOVIE REVIEW SULTHAN is written and directed by Bakkiyaraj Kannan of REMO fame. Dream Warriors have produced this film.

TEDDY MOVIE REVIEW – DISNEY HOTSTAR

TEDDY is loosely adapted from the Hollywood franchise TED. Shakti Soundarrajan is the director and writer of the film and TEDDY is produced by Studio Green. TEDDY has an amusing story line but unfortunately the writing is dismal and gets hyperbolic as the movie progresses. Kollywood’s fascination for medical madness continues with very little commonsense. The characters are half baked while the narration is juvenile. … Continue reading TEDDY MOVIE REVIEW – DISNEY HOTSTAR
