Taramani – Movie review

Taramani is a story two individuals Althea Johnson (Andrea Jeremiah) and Prabhu (Vasanth Ravi) who have different lifestyles in the so called developed corporate world. Story set in the corporate hub of Chennai – Taramani , takes thru the large number of issues which are affecting the common man’s life. Althea a single mother working in a male dominant IT industry meets Prabhu who is affected from love failure and is a wandering loner. Rest of the story is how they fall in love and how their relationship gets complicated.

Director Ram neatly inserts sharp truth as needles throughout the film. He speaks about various issues which is affecting the world around you apart from the love story which forms the base. Andrea Jeremiah is the right choice for the role and she performs brilliantly, new face Vasanth ravi too pulls it off and gives a decent performance. The second half is slow as the movie which deviates from the main story which could have been trimmed or totally taken off. Yuvan’s music is a big plus and adds strength to the strong writing of Ram. Taramani is a must watch.. I give it 6/10

Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2 – Movie review

After the success of Velai Illa Pattadhari (VIP) follows VIP 2 directed by  Soundarya Rajnikanth and story by Dhanush . In the story we follow Raghuvaran (Dhanush) our hero , is now married to Shalini ( Amala Paul) and getting used to married life. We are also introduced to another character Vasundara played by Kajol who is returning to tamil cinema after two decades. Vasundara who runs the top architectural firm in South India, wants Raghuvaran in her firm after he wins the prestigious Engineer of the year award. But Raghuvaran’s who wants to start his own firm says no to the offer. This triggers a chain of reactions and adds fuel to the ego war between Vasundara and Raghuvaran. How Raghuvaran manages to tackle Vasundara’s rage is the rest of the story.

Though the films starts with a fresh face of Kajol , the movie doesn’t offer anything new. We find traces of Padaiyappa in Dhanush and Kajol encounters. The first half is faster than the second half which drags to a clumsy finish. Though Kajol dominates the screen along with Dhanush , weak storyline and lifeless screenplay makes the second half unbearable. Addition of characters from the previous part makes the first half enjoyable but the same flow is not maintained in the second half. Dialogues written by Dhanush manages to create his fans roar in the theatres but nothing stays in the mind after you come out of the theaters. Music was a big letdown from Anirudh  as well. Overall the movie gets 4/10

Vikram Vedha – Movie review


Huge release of this week is from the husband & wife / director & writer duo Pushkar – Gayathri , who has come back after seven years with a strong screenplay and characters with the best actors in the industry. Story starts with Vikram (Madhavan) a honest but ruthless encounter specialist who is given a task of hunting a gangster Vedha ( Vijay Sethupathy). In this cat and mouse game both Vikram and Vedha take hits which affects them emotionally and physically. Each time as Vikram gets closer to Vedha, he is pushed to judge his character as a opportunist , gangster and as a brother . Vedha takes Vikram into maze of events which eventually leads Vikram to the truth.
Huge success of this film is how each and every technician and actor has given 100% and applause goes to the director – writer duo who has brought that to effect on screen. Both Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy both were true to their character which elevates them to another level in their careers . Background score and music engages the audience to each scene and makes it a memorable one. There are a few scenes which might not be to same measure, and there is a lag in the first half which is bearly noticeable towards the end. Pushkar & Gayathri welcome back and you get 8/10 for this film.

Vanamagan – Movie review

Story revolves around Jara( Jayam Ravi) a tribal whose community is threatened by the modern world and people who want to take over their land. When Jara manages to escape he has a accident and lands in hands of Kaavya ( Sayyesha) a rich and spoils heiress who comes to same island to celebrate the new year. Kaavya brings Jara to the modern world, to which his raw innocence and animal like behaviour makes Kavvya’s world upside down. As she manages to bring Jara under control , she also believes that she has get Jara back to his community. How she does that and how Jara get his people out of trouble is the rest of the story.
This is also one of Jeyam Ravi’s experiment in which most of the screen time is given to the female lead and he barely has any dialogue in the film. New comer Sayyeshaa gives a decent performance and shows that she can handle enough screen time. Jayam Ravi makes most of the character but I say it’s a waste for his talent and his caliber. Vfx and music end up crude and useless in the end without any creativity. Though initially comically and engaging, it becomes boring with a dull screenplay after the first hour. Predictable and unimaginative story gives Vanamagan just 3/10

Duvvada jagannadham (DJ) – Movie Review

Duvvada Jagannatham (Allu Arjun) as a young boy coming from a orthodox Brahmin family, is brought up in the ahimsa way. But Jagannatham wants to fight against injustice which happens around him. He joins hands with a cop (Murali Sharma) and becomes a vigilante called DJ and hunts bad elements in society. He comes across his worst opponent Royalla Naidu ( Rao Ramesh) a huge business who is also secretly behind a huge real estate scam which is draining people’s money. What happens when both of them meet is the rest of the story.
DJ doesn’t offer anything new in the story segment, but has enough mass scenes and dance moves to entertain the audience through the film. Allu Arjun does well in his tailor made character, and carries the film on his shoulder through out. Pooja hegde looks great and gives a decent performance. The whole gives a decent performance and stick to their role . Music and songs a plus and fulfils every Allu Arjun’s fans. The second half might look a tad slow but catches up and ends well. Though with a old story and a predictable screenplay, DJ still manages to entertain the audience. The movie gets 5/10
