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

Nerkonda Paarvai – Movie Review

Meera Krishnan (Shraddha Srinath), Famitha Banu (Abirami) and Andrea (Andrea Triang) are three independent working women staying together. After a dance show Meera and her freinds meet up with an old friend accompanied with couple of his mates and hang around for dinner. After dinner they go a resort and start drinking, when the women find that they are in danger, they fight back leaving Adhik a son of a an influential person seriously injured and escape out of the place. But trouble continues as the boys want to teach the girls a lesson. As the harassment gets out of hand, Meera lodges a complaint on the boys, but with Adhik’s influence the case is turned against the girls and they are charged with attempt murder and extortion of money. With no one to support them inside and outside the court, in comes Barath (Ajith) an upright lawyer who takes up the case on behalf of the girls. But will Bharath who is suffering from depression and bi-polar disorder help the girls get justice? That makes the rest of the story.

From the date when the remake was announced, the one thing which was going thru mu mind was how Ajith and Shraddha are going the pull of the characters which was played effortlessly by Tapsee and Amitabh bachchan and how a sensitive issue would be remade to the Tamil culture. But Director H.Vinodh carefully handled this remake, making small changes to Ajith’s role which worked and also made the dialogues powerful and executed this as a worthwhile remake. Ajith owns the whole movie from the pre interval scene to the end of the movie. Shraddha Srinath too as performed well with a well-directed supporting cast. Vidhya balan’s role was overworked but still supported to a level. Rangaraj pandey’s too does a decent job.It would impossible to compare Amitabh’s performance to Ajith’s as both the characters were manipulated to their mode of acting and presence, and that’s what make this film unique and works even for a remake. I give it 7/10
