Fast And Furious 6 – Movie Review


Fast & Furious 6

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. The main “plot” is this: Diesel and Walker have to reassemble the team from FAST FIVE again, this time to help Agent Hobbs (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) track down hot shot bad guy Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) who is assembling parts of a deadly device that can black out a country for 24 hours .This is how much you are going to hear on that, rest is filled with chaotic car chases and gun fights throughout the movie.

The dialogue is terrible; all you hear are one liners, followed by abusive remarks and more one liners. The acting is bad as ever but the car stunts are bigger and crazier than ever before easily outdoing the scale of the Rio “Vault” scene from the prior film. The tank sequence gets carried away but gives the audience a thrill ride. Generally speaking any series that has managed to make its way to a sixth installment is worth a view. This wildly inconsistent franchise seems to rise and fall solely based on the cast and how they handle the plot. For me the best is the part 1 the 2001 original and the 2011’s series-best Fast Five. I give this film 5/10

Neram – Movie review


The film starts with the quote from Quentin Tarantino “I steal from every movie ever made”. So friends if you see any shots or scenes which resembles any Hollywood sequence keep it to yourself.The movie theme is based on time and how it changes ones life with unexpected challenges, in this case all in one day to our hero Nivin who plays Vetri as a jobless young man who has to deal with it.
I am not able to categorize this film as comedy ,drama,thriller or crime, it has bits of everything in its amateurish way.Nivin has only acted as told by the director, he looks very cold in most of the scenes. I think its become normal to have dubbing errors, as on one cares about it and it shows in the main characters. Simhaa who acts as the villain has potential and i bet we can see more of him in the future.The director Alphonse Putharen who has also edited this film has managed to bring all the characters in play in film.Expect for Thambi ramaiyaa who’s disgraces himself in his character.Nazriya who’s plays Veni and the lover of our hero has potential but has less screen time in the film.The cinematographer Anend C.Chandran has experimented on colors and framing but very few can be applauded.To many tight close-ups and slow motion shots becomes unbearable after some time.
Dragging second half makes this film uncomfortable .But this film doesn’t make you sleep thanks to some casual scenes and dialogues.A very predictable film which should have been not more than 90 minutes. I give it 4/10
P.S. the titles was a good attempt .

Soodhu kaavum Movie review


Soodhu kaavum :

Vijay Sethupathi’s first film of the year and it’s directed by Nalan Kumararaswamy who has already has gained popularity in Kalaignar Tv’s reality show Naalaiya Iyakkunar. This film is hilarious and full of entertainment. The story revolves around three jobless friends who come under the wing of Vijay Sethupathy who is a small time crook who forms the gang to take his level up as a kidnapper. All goes well until they plan a kidnapping of a politician and the story takes a twist with betrayal and comedy of errors and ends with a decent climax.

Having given back to back hits Vijay Sethupathy has under played in this film, but has done justice to his character. The cast has been skillfully selected for this comedy feature. Dialogues are very casual and are well thought for every character. Cinematography by Dinesh krishnan is rich and colorful. Santhosh narayan’s the music director has delivered with his songs but his background score needs more work. They have tried a experimental role for Sanchita Shetty but unfortunately it backfires, it would have been better if she was not in the film at all. Performances of Yog Japee as the encounter specialist and Karuna Karan as the kidnapped politician son is worth mentioning .The thing I like about this movie is it doesn’t have heroes or villains every character has some amount of craziness and perfection. Great debut film for the Director although the film could have been trimmed for at least 15 mins which would have made this film even better. I give the film 6/10
