Secret Superstar – Movie Review

Secret superstar

15 year old Insia ( Zaira Wasim) is a talented singer , who wants to become a super star in a singinf competition. But her dreams are confined only within the four walls of her room and to her mother Najma. Financially dependent on her abusive husband and conservative household Najma (Meher Vij) can allow her children them to be themselves only when her husband is on business trips. Though Insia tries her best to convince her mom into divorce, Najma stays reluctant and scared. Whether Insia gets to fulfill her dreams is the rest of the story.

Even with a very predictable story and simple story telling, Secret Super star stands tall in performances of the characters. Young Zaira gives and outstanding performance with good support by others actors. Aamir khan charms his way around in the second half but doesn’t over doo. Music and songs support the film well.Duration makes it little slow on the second half but the film finishes strong. Though Secrect Super star will not be a commercial success it will still entertain and stay in your heart. I give the film 7/10

Meyaadha Maan – Movie review

In the first scene we get introduced to Murali/ alias idayam Murali( Vaibhav)
Drunk to the max, calling his close friend Vinodh and Kishore ( vivek Prassana & Arun Prasad) to say that he is commit suicide as his one side love with Madhu has ended. At first Vinodh and Kishore laugh it out but when they realise that Madhu is about to be engaged and Murali might actually do it. They immediately rush to Madhu’s house and beg her to talk to him. Madhu who has no clue about the one sided love, is shocked but agrees to help them and insults Murali on phone so that he will not commit suicide and eventually forget her. But this sparks events in both Murali’s and Madhu’s lives , which attracts them both towards each other. How this ends is the rest of the story.

Though the movie is filled with drinking and smoking , muted dialogues in every alternate scene, the movie still engages the audiences with lots of humour and friendship as its foundation . Vaibhav suits the role and does a decent job. The best performance comes from Vivek Prassana and Induja who plays Sudar as Murali’s younger sister. Both of them support the movie very well, and enhance those particular scenes which actually are the best in the movie. Priya Bhavani Shanker as Madhu gives a fair performance though there not much screen space for her. Music was at its best and adds much needed flavour to the film. Though the director Rathnakar Kumar managed to extract good performances from the cast, the second half was loosely scripted and failed to maintain connection. The duration also plays spoil sport as the scenes become repetitive and dull. With a varied reviews especially bad ones, Meyadha Maan still gets 5/10

Mersal – Movie review

Till the day before Diwali, Mersal went through several issues, first the title row, then came confusion on the ticket pricing and finally the animal welfare board clearing which was needed for some scenes of the film. All this and Mersal released with maximum shows playing it in the city. The story starts with disappearance of key hospital staff and doctor which creates chaos across the city. When this criminal act is linked with Doctor Maran (Vijay) known as “the five rupees doctor” , the plot develops towards the medical practitioners and their service which is currently becoming the top industry in the country. How Maran is connected to this and how this ends is the rest of the story.

Though rumors started as this story is version of Apoorva Sagodharargal which also had triple character of the lead role Kamal Hassan, this one is a clearly is different with just a pinch of its flavor. Atlee has meticulously worked in the close knit story and well made screenplay by K. V. Vijayendra Prasad while acquiring the best from his lead role. Vijay has performed well and there are lots of mass scenes and moments which were tailored to make his fans go crazy. SJ Surya has done a good job and becoming top actors in the villain roles. Kajal Agarwal and Samantha have their moments but Nithya Menen is good and overcomes others by her performance. Vadivelu ,Kovai Sarala and Satyaraj have very little to offer but do their roles decently. Duration might look long for some, but was just right for me. Story is predictable which might cause dullness among the audience and songs could have been visualized better. Mersal gets 6/10

Karuppan -Movie review

Maayi (Pasupathy) is a local headman and respectable person in his community, he is proud of his bull which has never been tamed in the annual Jallikattu . On one such occasion,and In the heat of the moment he agrees to give his sister Anbu( Tanya Ravichandran) in marriage to Karuppan (Vijay Sethupathy) if he tames his bull. As expected Karuppan tames the bull. Though reluctant at first Anbu agrees to the marriage much to the disappointment of Kathir (Bobby Simha) Maayi’s brother in law who had his eye on Anbu since childhood. Disoriented Kathir starts to create problems in their married life , will their marriage survive from Kathir ‘s treacherous acts ?this forms the rest of the story.
With Jallikattu as backdrop and with a graceful performance by Vijay Sethupathy Karuppan is a certain hit in B and C centres. Vijay Sethupathy clearly dominates the screen and rest of the cast gives him good support. Tanya Ravichandran gives a good performance , could have concentrated more on her lip sync though. Bobby Simha and Pasupathy too give a commendable performance. Having such good performances the story has nothing new to offer and lands up very predictable without any twists. Karuppan gets 5/10
