Game over – movie review

Film starts with a gruesome murder of a young lady who has been stalked by a serial killer. These murder continue targeting young women who are alone in the house, and the police are clueless and are left baffled . We then follow Swapna ( Taapsee ) a game developer who works from home. She has a unique phobia called nyctophobia – fear of darkness which she suffers after an incident in her past. She even has her house guarded with surveillance cameras to protect her, while her only companion inside the house is her maid kalaamma ( Vinodhini).Only in the intermission we come to know that the serial killer has targeted Swapna for his next victim who is left desperate within her house. What happens next is the rest of the story.

For director Ashwin this his is second film after a successful debut with Maya. Game over too doesn’t disappoint the audience. The story telling is clean and has enough bread crumbs that the audience can reach out and follow the narration without any confusion. Taapsee single handedly carries the whole film on her shoulders and does a brilliant job. Well supported by the Vasanth the cinematographer who creates the world around the lead role, and the brilliant background score by Ron Ethan Yohan elevates this thriller to its success. The only drawback in the film for me is the director takes his own time on characterising the main lead , for which he could have used that time to explain more on the twist in the film. Other than that film is a must watch and I give the film 7/10.

NGK – Movie review

Kumaran (Surya) is an environmental engineering graduate who comes back to his village roots to bring a change for his village and not get caught in the corporate world. This motivates the village youngsters who join Kumaran and run an organic farm. This elevates Kumaran by status which brings him under the radar of local politician who enjoys profits made by loaners and fertilizer vendors. Soon Kumaran gets into trouble as his farm his burnt and his compatriots muscled out, he is left all alone.  He finally understands that even to be a do-gooder he has to be politics and joins the local party. But being inside the party is not as simple as he has to sacrifice his basic integrity and honor. How Kumaran climbs up the ladder and achieves his goal is the rest of the story.

Though the story starts simple and clearly shows what it leads to, unnecessary scenes and abrupt jumps makes it unbearable to the audience. Director Selvaraghavan produces a half boiled script which makes it hard to digest, Sai Pallavi’s half the time dead as a zombie or overacting to the level were the whole scene is spoilt. Rakul preet singh manages to deliver a decent performance but her role ends abruptly. The film barely survives with just Surya’s acting and performance but that too doesn’t help the film Music by Yuvan is Ok but songs are a disaster. I give it 3/10

Devi 2 – Movie review

Devi 2 storyline starts from its predecessor, where Krishna (Prabhu deva) finally gets rid of Ruby the ghost from his wife Devi’s (Tamannaah)  body , he is still insecure of unearthly spirits. So as suggested by his family astrologer, he shifts geographically to avoid any unearthly conflicts. The couple migrates to Mauritius and start a peaceful life. But trouble follows them as this time Krishna is possessed by not one but two ghosts who needs Krishna’s body to fulfill their last wishes. How Devi manages the two ghosts in Krishna’s body and finally gets rid of them is the rest of the story.

The big question is why there has to be sequel to an already mediocre run movie. Devi did not have huge box office hit and failed in both languages. At least a songs were better and it had a better production value. Devi 2 was pure waste of money which below average script and miserable acting of the whole cast. R J Balaji tries to salvage the second half but the damage has already been done. Devi 2 gets a miserable 1/10

Mr Local – Movie review

Manohar (Siva karthikeyan) is a youngster from middle class family working in a car showroom . His life is simple with his widowed mother , teenage sister and his close friends . In a minor road accident he comes in Keethana Vasudevan ( Nayanthaara ) . As ego clashes between them the minor tussle becomes a huge feud. Keerthana being a big shot muscles her way , but Manohar with his wits manages get out of trouble. How this battle ends is the rest of the story.
If you are fine with a repeat of 80’s Tamil movie plot, zero screenplay, a hero who delivers one liners at every alternative dialogue, unnecessary foreign locations used for twisting plots, an upbeat BGM wasted across mediocre scenes, though the movie has two leading comedians the hero overtakes them. If you are able to digest all of the above for 150mins, you can go for the movie. As for me, am still pondering over the money I wasted over the movie ticket. I give this movie 1/10
