Jersey is the brilliant sports drama by director Gowtham Tinnanuri. The movie is well balanced with emotions and sport sequences and is a clear winner. Nani does a brilliant job as a cricketer and as a loving father. Shraddha Srinath has also done a decent job. the cast has been well chosen and story as been executed well as the movie travels from the year 1986 to 2019. Screen play plays a important role and in this film has been to its strength . The music by Anirudh was well supportive to the film. The length of the movie though could have been less. I give the film 7/10
Following the success of Kanchana 1 & 2, Raghava Lawrence comes with the third addition of the movie. In the beginning we are introduced to Kaali ( Raghava Lawrence) who eliminates a ruthless gang who support a corrupt politician and his brother. We are then taken to different story where Raghava( Raghava Lawrence) still the same scared young man who is still pampered by his kind mother ( Kovai sarala) . This time Raghava is leaves to his home town to his grandparents 60th marriage puja. There the family is tormented my two ghosts and eventually Raghava gets possessed by the ghosts. What becomes of Raghava and what’s the connection between Kaali and the ghosts is the rest of the story.
With the same pattern and same old cast Kanchana 3 still manages entertains you . Lawrence , with Kovai sarala and gang give u some hilarious moments which bring the audience roll with laughter. But other than those funny sequences the movie has nothing new, story is predictable , songs are a total waste of time. The extra cast of three female actress casted opposite Lawrence fail to impress and end up only as glamour dolls. Kanchana 3 can be skipped. I give it 2/10
