Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva – movie review

After a lot of hurdles and shuffled release dates Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva releases this week. Chennai is ruled by G.K.Raja (Ashutosh Rana) a ruthless MP , who dominates Chennai city real estates business . He is pain for the Police Commissioner (Sathyaraj) who is unable to put him behind bars as he never leaves a trace of evidence and rest of them are afraid of him. In comes Shiva(Raghava Lawrence) an young Police officer who transfers himself to Chennai with a past connecting the Commissioner. Upon joining duty he joins hands with G.K and helps him in his illegal ways, which irritates the commissioner even more. Only then he comes to know that Shiva is his lost son. Why is Shiva working against his father and how his father guides him back to the right side of the law is the rest of the story.

Being the remake of the Telugu movie Pattas, the director doesn’t change anything at the screen play level. Raghava Lawrence tries to keep us engaged , but a predictive storyline and spineless direction the movie fails to impress. Though songs are made for Lawrence, tunes or phrases are not catchy. Nikki Galrani was just a glamour doll, and has very less screen time. Villain was more comical than ruthless , and was just shouting all the doesn’t offer anything new and ends very predictive and bland. I give the movie 4/10

Veera Shivaji – Movie Review


Shivaji alias Siva ( Vikram Prabhu) is a cab driver in Puducherry, being an orphan himself he is closely attached to 10 year old yazhini, who lives with her widowed mother. When all is well tragedy strikes as young Yazhini is diagnosed with tumour in her brain and needed immediate operation. When Siva is desperate for money For the operation , he is swindled by a counterfeit gang . How Siva gets back his money and saves Yazhini is the rest of the story.
Veera Shivaji is most amateurish film made this year , it fails in every aspect in the film. The acting is very weak, direction is weaker and falls apart. Shamili looks like a glamourised zombie and off sync all the way. Veera Shivaji will disappear even before you have second thoughts of seeing it in theatres.I give it 1/10

Dhilluku Dhuddu – Movie review

Dhilluku Dhuddu

Dhilluku Dhuddu marks the 4th feature of Santhanam as a hero, Directed by Rambala who is popular for his Lollu Sabha TV Series in Vijay TV. Movie starts with event which happened many years ago in a palace located Sivankonda Malai which is haunted by a lady and her seven years old son who were brutally killed by a Tibetan king. Since then the palace and the village nearby are tormented by the ghosts. Cut to Present day where Kajal (Shanaya) is in search of Kumar (Santhanam) her childhood friend .After some brief and usual story segments they she finds Kumar (Santhanam) and falls in love with him. Unhappy about their relationship Kajal’s Dad (Saurabh Shukla) decides to kill Santhanam with the help of ‘Mottai’ Rajendran. They lure Santhanam and his family to the haunted palace to kill them .How Kumar deals with murderous gang and the ghosts which haunt the palace is rest of the story.

Branded as a horror comedy, the horror part come just starts in the second half . First half is just filled with same old love story and usual one liners from Santhanam. Though comedy is clean it’s the same as any Santhanam’s comedy movie and doesn’t impress. Santhanam’s hero role doesn’t stand as its forced on the audience only his comedy traits are notable.  New comer Shanaya dosen’t deliver she could have been replaced by any Tamil speaking heroine who could have done better. Hindi actor Saurabh Shukla who plays the girl’s dad, has done a good job but to his caliber his role was wasted with very less screen time. ‘Mottai’ Rajendran is takes command in the second half and takes the audience in a fun roller coaster. Other cast members which include Karunas, Anandaraj  fail to impress. Dhilluku Dhuddu gets 5/10

Theri – Movie Review

eTheri-First-Look-Poster copy

Theri Much anticipated “Theri” with Atlee and Vijay combination released on Friday , this movie was widely expected to be a hit as last two films of Vijay was average. Joseph Kuruvilla ( Vijay) a soft spoken baker lives a simple life along with his cute daughter Nivi ( Nainika) . His normal life is disturbed when he has a conflict with the local gang. When he is pushed to corner and his daughter’s life is threatened , Joseph comes out his hibernation and shows his true colours. This starts a chain of events which leaves Joseph and his daughter run for their lives. Who really is joseph Kuruvilla? And why is he chased by villains ? And how he tackles them is the rest of the story.

A complete entertaining film is delivered by Atlee and team. Entertaining first half makes Vijay fans go crazy . Vijay takes charge from the beginning is complimented well with good dialogues and clean screenplay . Samantha proves once again that she can step up as a good actress when the chance is given, she does a great job. Nainika’s performance was well moulded by Atlee. Her scenes were enjoyable and cute. Motta Rajendran and Radhika play Important roles and perform decently . As much as the first half was well scripted the second half was really weak, dull and predictable.its strays without direction and ends rather raw. Vijay struggles in emotional scenes, Infact weakest points in the film are the emotional scenes . The veteran director Mahendran who plays the villain is quite weak in his character and doesn’t match Vijay’ s heroics. Amy Jackson was just their to fill the screen , her character doesn’t do much in the story. Music was a huge blunder, songs are messy and the Bgm blares all over the film loudly. Cinematography and Art direction are key elements which should be clearly applauded . A planned first half is clouded by a weak and dull second half, but still manages to get 6/10

Darling – Movie review


Allu Aravind’s Geetha Arts and joins hands with KE Gnanavelraja’s Studio Green to introduce composer GV Prakash Kumar in the lead in comedy horror film Darling. The film revolves between Kathir( GV Prakash) , Kumaran ( Balasaravanan) and Nisha(Nikki Galrani) who decide to commit suicide as they are frustrated and depressed of their individual lives . They plan to this in their friend’s house situated in the outskirts of the city. On the way they meet Athisayaraj ( Karunas) who also joins them as he is also determined to end his life. The minute they land in the house, nothing goes right for them and Nisha gets possessed by an evil spirit. How they deal with this evil spirit forms the rest of the story.

The film which was remade from a Telugu blockbuster “Prema Katha Chitram” fails to impress the audience. Even though GV Prakash and Nikki Galrani give a decent performance, repetitive comedy scenes make the audience yawn with boredom. Few scenes brings laughter and the scene with “Naan Kadavul” Rajendran is one of them. Music was ok but none of the songs tend to stay in the mind. A very predictable story and amateur editing makes it even worse. I give it 2/10.
