Sathya – movie review

Sathya (Sibi Sthyaraj) a businessman Australia leading very dull life, is surprised when he gets a claw from his ex – Swetha (Remya Nambeesan) from chennai asking for his help. He immediately leaves to Chennai to find her in near psychotic state after losing her child Riya by kidnapping. The worst thing is the law enforcement has closed the case and her husband to has also  given hope. Sathya too makes inquiries , but it always ends to a dead end. Soon he finds out that the Riya is hallucination in Swetha’s mind, due to her trauma when she got car jacked. But Swetha is convinced that there is conspiracy behind this and everyone is lying, including her husband .How will Sathya solve this is the rest of the story.

Though Sathya is a remake, good performances and decent edit makes it good watch. The director manages to keep the audience at edge of their seat till the end, though the climax seems to be forced in duration. This performance makes it the best from Sibi Sathyaraj as for the rest of cast too gives a decent performance.Song and bgm were well made and keeps us engaged throughout. This thirller gets 5/10

Richie – Movie review

Richie starts with the stubborn journalist Megha (Shraddha Srinath) who wants to write about a murder which happened on the Christmas Eve in Thoothukudi. Though the law enforcement has closed the file , she thinks there is different story behind the whole incident which she wants to unfold. Thus the movie revolves around the characters in the movie who narrate the incident in their point of view to Megha .

The main movie takes a non commercial path but flows in a rather takes classical mode, which may takes time to sink for most of the audience. But the director takes the narrative thru different minds of the characters which has come out well. Nivin Pauly has done a good job and commands the screen through out. But the rest of the cast gives a very dull and an amateur performance , which is the main draw back of the film. Though the movie runs for 110 mins, the dragging second half makes it like 180 mins. Movie still gets 4/10

Thiruttupayale 2 – Movie review

Selvam ( Bobbie Simha) is honest cop living peacefully with is wife Agal (Amala Paul). When Selvam is given an important assignment of tapping to phone calls of politicians and high level government officials his life changes. He uses this medium to exploit and twist situations and starts to make money. Soon he becomes addicted to this and it’s affects his family life . Once when he is listening to an illegal affair between two people , he comes across an womaniser named Balkrishnan ( Prassana) who targets housewives thru facebook, first he impresses them and finally brings them to his control and uses them. Things gets heated up when Selvam realises that his wife is also fallen prey to this pervert, his whole life gets distraught. When Selvam tries to push Balki out using his power , he gets into more trouble as Balki threatens to expose is corrupt life and wife’s relationship with him to the public and starts a dangerous game of cat and mouse between each other. How this ends is the rest of the story.

Sushi Ganeshan takes upon common people who are vulnerable to the new age technology , which they are easily addicted too. How there lives can be easily manipulated by strangers to whom your personal life becomes an open book. Story which revolves around three characters played really well by the lead roles, especially Prasanna who clearly dominates the film. Amala Paul plays the innocent wife , but in some scenes over does it. Bobbie Simha does a decent job , but we have seen much better performances by him. Good research on the subject helped the makers to deliver this seamless storyline which keeps you engaged till the end. The film seems slow in the second half and maybe rushed in the end, maybe they could have speeded up the first half to accommodate the main story which develops only in the second half. I give it 6/10

Annadurai – movie review

Annadurai (Vijay Antony) is a kind hearted man who becomes an alcoholic when his fiancée has a tragic accident. Though his family and brother try to change him, he is not able to get over his loss. Thambidurai his twin brother is PT master in a school, though he is equally good natured person, he disregards his elder brother due to his bad habit. When Thambidurai is approached with a marriage proposal, tragedy strikes in the family as Annadurai is charged of murder in a bar brawl and sent to prison for seven years . How this event changes the lives of his family and whether Annadurai is able to restore the lost peace in his family is the rest of the story.

Vijay Antony in recent times has created a good fan following group after his hit film Pitchaikaaran. Though his choosing of stories are different, he manages to bring it his favour which ends up decent. Annadurai starts with a decent first half with mixture of sentiment and love. Vijay Antony though with very subtle emotions manages to fit in the both the characters. Female leads could have been chosen well as they couldn’t deliver in the intended roles. The second half fails miserably as the story takes you to a never ending spiral of mess. Amateur screenplay and direction takes the film further down and becomes flat towards the end . Annadurai gets only 2/10

Theeran Adhikaram Ondru – Movie Review

H.Vinoth who gave us the riveting con film Sathuranga Vettai is back with a inspiring cop thriller which is also based on true events. Theeran A newly appointed DSP (Karthi) is not only honest but intelligent cop who uses common sensibility to detect and solve crimes. He doesn’t stop any cost to apprehend the culprit, whoever it is. This nature transfers him all over the state, until he lands up in Thiruvalluvar district where he comes across a old case file on gruesome murders and dacoity. When the crime happens again Theeran starts to investigate and to his surprise these crimes have a history of more than 10 years. As he investigates the case takes him throughout the country which has baffled every state police. Theeran and his team work tirelessly on the case but practical challenges and outdated archive methods of the system backtrack them. Even their personal lives get affected and they are mocked by their own colleagues. But as the gang makes another assault in their neighborhood, tragedy strikes on Theeran and his team. How Theeran manages to pull himself up and closes the case is the rest of the story.

Since this film is based on true events, the director and his team has meticulously gathered information on the events and of its nature. The amount of research done shows in the story and screenplay which elevates the film and makes it a must watch. Karthi as Theeran has put immense effort and stepped up his acting and physically had to be fit as it involved raw action sequences as most of film was shot in very tough conditions. Rakul Preet singh gave a decent performance, but her portion was a bit over cooked. Violence plays an important role in the film and some scenes are not for the weak hearted. Songs are hardly noticeable, but BGM was good. Special mention for Cinematographer Satya as his work in the action and desert sequences where visualized to perfection. Stunt choreographer Dilip Subbarayan’s action sequences where performed as real and believable sequences.Though the films slows down in the second half, the director manages to keep the audience on the edge of their seat..Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru is a must watch, I give it 7/10
