Maanagaram – Movie review


A young man who comes to get a job in the city to earn more money, A love story between an arrogant young man and a practical girl. A family which comes to city to starts a new life on account of their son’s health and a kidnap which goes wrong. All these stories and characters intervene in the city of chennai which forms the stage for this movie.
It’s not easy to form a screenplay which has intervening or parallel stories, and also give importance to the main theme without deviations . Great teamwork in all depts , especially the directors team which presents us a flawless screenplay and a good movie. Casting is the strength of the movie , Sri though starts a bit unconvincing , finishes great. Sundeep kishan who comes as the arrogant young man in love is faithful for his character and perform well. Regina Cassandra though with very less screen time, gives a decent performance. The pick of the whole lot is the Ramdoss/ Muniskanth who delivers to his best and keeps the film entertained. Between failures of extravagant commercial productions involving mainstream actors, Maanagaram is stands tall with a solid storyline and execution. It gets 7/10

Kirumi – Movie review


Kathir (Kathir) is a careless but a energetic youngster. He is unemployed and lives in his sister & wife’s earnings. Looking to make fast money he often gets into trouble in local bars and card games.
Prabhakaran (Charlie) his neighbor gets him a job as a informer in the local police station. Kathir is influenced by his new status and company ,he takes is job too seriously and soon becomes a close aid to the
inspector Soundarapandian (David). Kathir slowly gets drawn towards the unknown crime world and enmity among police officers. He gets tangled into huge mess when he informs about an illegal gambling racket and during the raid a huge amount money goes missing. This starts off a series of events which makes Kathir’s life miserable.Whether he survives this, forms the rest of the story.

A common man’s story with a realistic ending forms the core of the film Kirumi. Written by Manikandan and Anu Charan this story takes us into an unexplored crime world. Kathir who gave a good performance in
his earlier film has chosen a good film and worked hard for it. Reshmi Menon though left with very less screen space has acted well for her character. The best performance  came from the veteran actor Charlie,
why don’t they cast him in more films? Yogi Babu’s  inclusion gave a good comedy relief. Cinematography by Arul Vincent portrays the story naturally to the audience which is big plus to the film. K’s BGM added flavour the the film. Predictability and a slow second half makes the film dull. The climax may not be accepted by many but remains realistic, but leaves many questions unanswered. Thus gets 4/10
