Magamuni – Movie review

Maga (Arya) is a call taxi driver, he is married to Viji( Indhuja) and has a 5 year old son. Maga leads a double life as a taxi driver and also works as a hitman to a local political leader Muthuraj (Ilavarasu). Maga is very loyal to Muthuraj, but when Muthuraj goes ahead in the political hierarchy, his enemies target for revenge Maga as they can’t touch Muthuraj. On a parallel track Muni (Arya) is an educated organic farmer in a village near Erode, leads a disciplined life away from all the buzz of the city life. When both Maga and Muni’s life cross paths tragedy breaks and forms the rest of the story.

Santhakumar who director the acclaimed Mouna Guru, comes with his second film Magamuni. What stands out in the film is the way Santhkumar fills up deep philosophical lines very casually in between the dialogues and scenes which forms the highlight in the whole film. Arya after Bala’s  Naan Kadavul, performs to his best in this film. Induja delivers to maximum but I have to say that her character is wasted in the film as of most of the cast. Though most of the film follows with philosophical lines the story develops quiet intriguing in the first half, but the second fails miserably and ends with a lot of unanswered questions. Magamuni is watchable to an extent.i give it 4/10

Sivappu Manjal Pachai – Movie review

Orphaned at an early age, Madan  ( G V Prakash) and his elder sister Raaji(Lijomol Jose) , have a very tough childhood but take care of each other. Madhan is too possessive of Raaji, so intense as he even make Raaji promise as she would only marry a person whom both of them like and agree to. Raaji too takes care of Madan as almost as his mother. Madan grows out to be street bike racer and often gets into trouble with other local biker gangs. Raaji who warns Madan of the consequence of rash driving, but Madan shows a deaf ear to her. On one of his races he gets caught by a strict traffic sergeant Rajasekar (Siddharth) and gets humiliated publicly. Madan who looses his bike and humiliated as a grudge on Rajasekar.  On a twist of fate Raaji and Rajasekar marriage alliance is formed and Madan is left stranded in the bond is broken. How the  brother and sister heal their relation back is the rest of the story.

After the blockbuster hit  Pichaikkaran in 2016, director Sasi returns with Sivappu Manjal Pachai. This time he takes the brother –sister relationship and also shows how important is the brother in law’s relation towards the siblings in a family. Thought he movie is over dominated by melodrama with some good writing and dialogues manage to keep you engaged. Siddarth and G V Prakash share equal screen play and do a decent job, though siddarth’s acting still looks over reactive. Lijomol Jose gives a lead actor’s performance and dominates the whole film. The story goes fast in the first half but looses track with over melodramatic scenes and tests our patience in the second half. I give it  3/10

Sixer – Movie review

Aadhi(Vaibhav) is a site engineer who suffers from night blindness, is life in the outside world is only for 12hrs in the day from morning 6an to evening 6pm. His parents and his friends help him in the remaining 12hrs. Though his parents are determined to find a girl for marriage. Aadhi is reluctant due to his condition. One evening as he is rushing back home, his bike stops midway near the beach. As his blindness creeps in he calls his friend to pick him up. In a comedy of errors he gets mixed up in a protest in the beach and claimed as the leader of the protest by the media, especially by one reporter Krithika ( Palak lalwani) . Though Aadhi finally falls in love due to this situation, he also falls in the wrath of the politician whom the protest was done for. How Aadhi manages his love and the villain is the rest of the story.

Vaibhav fits the theme naturally and also carries the character in the film decently. Director Chaci brings in lot comedy which almost works in the movie too. Though very predictable the movie keeps you engaged throughout.Gibran’s music works but songs doesn’t stick to the movie. Palak lalwani who actually has a lot of screen space doesn’t deliver at all. Satish and Radha ravi manage to pull it off in the slow second half. Sixer is still watchable to an extent. I give 3/10

Saaho – Movie review

The story starts in a fictional city Waaji, where the criminal empire led by Roy ( Jackie Shroff) runs his gangster syndicate. Though he keeps a tight leash on everyone, Devraj (Chunky Pandey) who wants to take over Roy’s place. As the syndicate tries to expand its territory in India, Roy travels to India were he is killed by the rival gang. As the Roy group has the control of all the syndicate’s money . Everyone is anxious as who will take over, in comes Roy’s son Arun vijay who guarantees the syndicate that the money is safe in a vault and the key (a black box) to the vault his secretly hidden in India. As the rivals groups fight to find the black box, an international thief is also wants to get to the black box. The police also forms a task force led by Ashok ( Prabhas) and Anjali ( Shraddha Kapoor) to tackle this situation and retrieve the black box . Who gets the black box and what happens to the syndicate is the rest of the story.

Though Prabhas tries to deliver his best and handles most of the scenes with a slow and endless twisting screenplay for 172 mins it becomes a tedious venture for the audience. First half is endless and takes us to unnecessary pots which over cooks the film. Second half too starts slow and only catches up in the end 30mins. Shraddha though having a enough screen space , still looks as an unwanted character in the film. Over composed VFX shots makes most of the scenes artificial thorough out the film. Ghibran’s background score elevates most of the scenes, but songs doesn’t make an impact. Other actors do their best , but nothing great. Action choreography is top notch but needs editing tweaks. Overall the film doesn’t justify the amount spent for this venture and lacks a good story line. I give it 3/10

Comali – Movie review

Film begins in 1989 with Ravi (Jayam Ravi) brought up well nurtured by his parents in a close-knit family. As Ravi moves into the 1999 as a happy-go-lucky school going 12th standard student he meets Nikitha (Samyuktha) and instantly falls in love. When finally he decides to tell his love to her he gets into an accident and goes into a coma. Sixteen years later Ravi wakes up to the new world. Ravi finds it difficult to adjust to the needs of the 21st century. How he copes up with the changes and how he deals with the challenges which come with it is the rest of the story.

Debutant writer and director Pradeep Ranganathan and his team has given a clean entertainer for the whole family. He finds just the right points of the current issues and places them perfectly inside the script. This was perfect for Jayam Ravi and he has done fabulous job, Yogi babu who actually shares equal screen space shines in this film. Kajal has very little to do but survives. KS Ravikumar too, does well. Music by HIP HOP Aadhi works and two songs were well picturized. Second half becomes a little slow and script becomes preachy, but picks up speed and ends decent .All together Comali is a fun filled ride which can be seen and enjoyed by all. I give it 7/10

Kolaiyuthir kaalam – Movie review

When multi millionaire Aabha Lawson leaves all her wealth and legacy to the adopted deaf and mute Shruthi (Nayanthaara) , she is brought to London to take over as the legal heir. the relatives of Aabha are not happy and try to convince her of writing off the wealth to their name. But Shruthi is adamant and wants to continue her mother’s legacy. But trouble starts on the night she arrives as her home is invaded by an intruder who starts killing the household one by one. How Shruthi survives the night is the rest of the story.

After the film was postponed for couple of times it finally released this Friday. Directed by Chakri toleti, remake of an American film Hush the film starts slow but becomes even more dragging and gets dull by as the minute rolls. Every element in the film fails to impress and Nayanthaara too delivers one of her weakest performances of her career. Best to avoid this film, which was a waste of money, energy and time. I give it 1/10
