NGK - Film review

Nanda Gopalan Kumaran is out on Amazon Prime since last week. One of the fastest films to hit the OTT Platform, even as mass fans and critics dubbed it as another dud for being too preachy on the social front. Somewhat similar to LKG feat. RJ Balaji which released three months back. NGK is played by Surya, fondly called Kumaran all through the film. He resigns a cushy job after completing his BE and Ph. D only to pursue Organic Farming in his native village where he enjoys working on the earthy fields, watching the evening turn in to nights and so on. Or so, he convinces his Mother and even as his educated wife (Sai Pallavi) who seem to love his decision to stay back in the native village. Well.   Kumaran sees in a real situation how a local Village Counsellor commands so much influence on the Bureaucrats, in this case a Collector. So he decides to shun Organic Farming and suddenly become a hunchman cum errand boy for a powerful MLA overnight where he learns the tricks of

Poojai - Music Review

Poojai is Tamil film featuring Vishal and Shruti Hassan, elder daughter of Actor Kamal Hassan. Vishal has maintained his position among the top 5 young heroes in the Tamil Film Industry and most of his films have been hits. This film is being produced by Vishal himself like some of his earlier movies and is directed by Hari who has earlier given super commercial hits like Vengai. Hari's scripts are usually racy and fast, and adopts a surprise twist and turn in most of the critical sequences. Vishal  had a good box office release with his recent release "Naan Sigappu Manithan" and the expectations from him are quite high from this film too. Shruti is back in Tamil Cinema after a long hiatus, almost after three years. She has been choosing her projects carefully and wish her to do well. Sarathraj sports a bald look in the film and is suppsoed to have a critical role and is supported by Radhika who now moves to Cinema after her successful TV serial Vani Rani. Kausalya and

Anjaan - Movie Review

This review is about a Tamil Movie which has a Tamil hero, a Tamil Heroine, a Tamil Director, a Tamil Music Composer a large star cast from Bollywood including the main Villain, and that's because the film is mostly shot in Mumbai. Or Mum'bhai'. Whatever. I wonder, if only Mumbai produces those dreaded Dons like Dawood, Chhota Shakeel and Raju Bhai (the film's lead and also the hero) that a number of recent tamil films have been shot there. Along with his close buddy (Vidyut Jamwal), Raju Bhai (Suriya) plays the role of a gangster. Though there weren't too many gory scenes of bloodbath as portrayed in other cult classics like Satya (directed by RGV and released in 1998), Shootout at Wadala, and so on, the film has its own share of guns, shooting and street violence. After a successful Singam 2 which was a sequel to Singam, directed by Hari, in which Suriya plays the role of a village inspector and later an Asst. Commissioner of Tutucorin, there were high hopes ridi
