Kashmora – movie review

image

In the beginning scenes of the film we see Kashmora (Karthi) is a black magic specialist , helps a family which is tormented by a spirit. He fights the spirit and saves the family. He issued as a saviour to the public and even Prayed as God my the people who come and visit him and his family in his Ashram. In reality he and his family are all frauds fooling people and running scams . Yamini (Sridivya) a college student who is fascinated by ghosts and after life tries to join Kashmora’s group. But she learns his true colours and waits for an opportunity to defame him. Meanwhile a politician reaches Kashmora to get rid of bad luck and to save him of imprisonment from an ongoing murder case. With luck and coincidence Kashmora saves the politician and becomes more popular. When all in favour of Kashmora he is approached by old man to help him wade of bad spirits from his house. Though reluctant at first Kashmora agrees to help him,little did he realises that fate has drawn Kashmora and his family to the spirits themselves . What happens next is the rest of the story.
What starts of like horror drama, coverts to a horror comedy and entertains the audience to the maximum. For Karthi comedy comes naturally and he performs with ease. Accompanied by Vivek and well sorted cast the first half just breezes through in a flash. Though Second half is slightly dragging with some serious storyline, it doesn’t loose its humour foundation and entertains the audiences. Karthi as the villainous Rajnayak in the second half is not completely convincing but carries through. Nayanthara is wasted in the second half, while Sridivya is barely visible in the film.CGI and VFX are decent, production design is good, but music and songs are big disaster and could have been better. But still Kashmora does entertains, so it gets 6/10

Kodi – Movie review

image

Kodi and Anbu ( Dhanush) are twins of Karunass a party worker, who sacrifices his life for the his political party. Kodi also follows his father’s footsteps and slowly becomes the leader of the youth wing. Though Kodi is actively involved in politics his twin Anbu follows his mothers steps and becomes a professor and exact opposite to Kodi. Like Kodi his girlfriend Rudra ( Trisha) is also into politics from childhood , but in the rival and ruling party. When a public crisis raises questions on Kodi’s party , Rudra tries to make use of it to raise herself in the party . This breaks the Kodi and Rudra relationship , and also tests Kodi’s loyalty to his party. What becomes of Kodi is the rest of the story.
Kodi is well scripted political thriller, which has commercial elements to satisfy Dhanush’s fans . Being the first film in which Dhanush has acted in dual role, there is lot of expectation and Dhanush doesn’t fail to use this opportunity to his strength. Dhanush performs well in both characters and carries the film on his shoulders till the end. If it’s Dhanush in the first half,Trisha dazzles in the second half, she escalates her acting skills to carry the character of a politician and balances Dhanush’s performance equally. Premam fame Anupama Parameshwaran makes a brief but decent performance. To many cast members is also a problem in this political thriller as you lose concentration briefly. The story though manages to keep you active with twists and turns , it looses its way in the second half and finishes rather dull. Kodi flutters but doesn’t fly high. I give it 5/10

Pulimurugan – Movie review

img_0870

Hailed as the saviour of villagers of Puliyur ,Pulimurugan ( Mohan Lal) is the king of the forest who saves them from the man- eating tigers which stray into the village. After a brief flashback of how he becomes a hunter we are taken into life of Pulimurugan and his family. Though Pulimurugan is a fearless hunter, he is also a loveable husband and a caring father. Life in the forest is peaceful until Pulimurugan gets into trouble with the law when he helps his brother’s friends . He is forced to leave his village and take sanctuary under a businessman / kingpin named Daddy Girija( Jagaapathi Babu ). What becomes of Pulimurugan after this is the rest of the story.

Though Pulimurugan is predictable almost all the way, it’s the screen presence and the magic of the complete actor Mohanlal which keeps you engaged. Rest of the cast just tags along and fill the rest of screen . Other than Mohanlal, Lal who comes as his uncle gives a good performance. Kamalini Mukharjee as Pulimurugan’s wife is quite decent in her role. Vfx and camera work have worked in tandem to produce some good visuals, though some shots could have been better. Key technical area is the stunts by Peter hein which stands out, he created specific stunts for the veteran actor, which looked believable onscreen. The major drawback is the editing and a very slow storytelling. With lot a unwanted scenes and stray characters it becomes never ending story. Pulimurugan is still watchable just for the complete actor. I give it 5/10
