Thondan – Movie review

Vishnu ( Samuthirakani) is a emergency Ambulance driver, who looks this as a public service more than a job. He his so committed that once patient is in his vehicle he makes it a point to get to the hospital on time. He even manages to turn his drunkard friend Vignesh into medical attendant and finds him a job. When he saves a man who left bleeding behind in a political murder, he earns the enemity of the local politician son Narayanan(Namo Narayanan). Things get more complicated when the politician brother ends up dead in his emergency vehicle when he is taken to the hospital for medical help. The politician owes to take revenge on Vishnu and his family . How Vishnu diverts the politician and manages to save is family is the rest of the story.
Though it was clear that this was going to be a film with Samuthirakani preaching non stop in the film, we thought there would be story to support it. But film lacks a decent screen play and wanders up and down loses it way. Samuthirakani even tries his hands in some romance , but fails miserably . Vikranth gives a decent performance, and so does Arthana who comes as Samuthirakani’s sister. First half is slow and picks up speed before the break. Second half is cluttered but ends decent . More messages but less story gives the film 4/10.

Brindhavanam – movie review

Kannan(Arulnidhi) is an orphan and speech and hearing impaired guy living in Ooty, he works as a barber and lives happily with friends and well wishers. His close friends are Varkki ( doubt kannan) and Sandhya (Tanya) who know him from childhood. Kannan is big fan of Actor Vivek and when he finds his favourite actor taking a break in Ooty , he is in cloud nine. Vivek too finds a unique bond with Kannan and they become very good friends . But things get complex when Sandhya proposes to Kannan , and Kannan just dismisses the whole idea without a reason and even breaks his friendship with Vivek as he agrees with Sandhya. Why does Kannan shy away from relationships? That forms the rest of the story.
Director Radha Mohan is clear from the word go to keep this the story simple and clean, with comedy on the shoulders till the end. Arulnidhi gives a decent performance in comedy but he still struggles in sensitive stuff .Tanya comes as a relief in this dull looking cast and performs well. The whole movie is carried by Vivek as he keeps the movie alive till the end. But too many repetitive scenes makes the audience yawn since we move to a predictable ending. Editor could have been strict screenplay could have been more crisp. I still give it 5/10 , since it’s way better than some of the summer releases.

Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thorae – Movie review

Vasu (jiva) is a real estate dealer who has a 100% success rate in selling properties, he evens sells the worst and non saleable properties by running scams with his close friend Sooranam( Soori). His only ambition in his life is buy his own big house and make his mother ( Raadhika) happy. He finally buys a huge house and moves into it with his extended family. When he lands up he finds there is already a family living there claiming to be the descendants of the actual owner. They finally come to an agreement and live together until the matter is solved , not knowing that the house is already haunted. How they survive in the house with the ghost is the rest of the story.

Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thoare has all the ingredients for comedy horror , a simple story which equally blends in comedy and horror with a good cast. Jiva  suits the main character and gives a decent performance. Sridivya manages to keep track in the film but doesn’t have scope in the film. Comedy track is taken care of Soori and Thambi Ramaiya who manages to keep the audience entertained, but double meaning and adult comedy could have been avoided as this film is targeted towards family audience. Songs are not appealing and doesn’t go with the film. Second half is much slower and drags towards a predictable climax. I give the film 4/10

Lens – Movie review

Arvind (Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan) is porn addict and is obsessed with online sex chatting, so obsessed that he even ignores his wife. Once while chatting with a masked person, he gets an invitation for personal video chat, upon continuing he finds out that it’s a man named Yohan ( Anand Swamy). Taken by surprise Arvind is embarrassed and tries to avoid Yohan and disconnects. Suddenly Arvind gets a video message from Yohan which contains the sex chat he with the women earlier. Yohan tells Aravind that he is going to commit suicide and requests Aravind to watch his death or he uploads the video. Who is Yohan ? , and why is he threatening Arvind is the rest of the story.

From the first scene the Director is clear on what he is delivering and the sensitivity of the content he is showing. Though given an “A” certificate they haven’t misused it show direct adult content for commercial purpose. Given the sensitive nature the actors in the film have done decent job, though Anand Swamy has overacted it in a few scenes. The new comer Aswathy lal has also given a decent performance. The only drawbacks were the cinematography and editing which gives an amateur presentation. The second half flashback scenes were dragging those could have been better. Even with these flaws Lens gives a hard hitting truth about online chatting and voyeurism which every adult should watch.I give it 5/10
