Shivalinga – Movie Review

Movie starts with a murder of Rahim( Shakti) on a running train, but this murder projected as a suicide. His lover and fiancée Sangeetha goes forward to the commissioner and requests to reopen the case and investigate. The case is given to Shivalingeshwaran (Raghava Lawrence ) a CB-CID officer who takes up the case. He moves in with his newly wedded wife Sathya( Rithika singh) near to the town of the investigation. As the case progresses things gets strange in the house and Sathya becomes curious towards Shiva’s case. What’s the connection with Sathya to the case ? and how shiva brings light to the case is the rest of the story.
P.Vasu remakes his own Kannada version to Tamil , the only difference is the energetic Raghava Lawrence who takes the lead role. Though the story starts dull, Raghava Lawrence and Vadivelu brings in humour and makes it alive. But repetitive scenes and slow storytelling makes the movie boring. Rithika singh doesn’t get into the character , she is just better in dancing with Lawrence . Shakti overacting get into the nerves of the audiences , he seems to be acting in his own film within the film itself. Over exaggerated cast just fills the screen creating noise and nonsense. Shivalinga offers nothing new and just keeps giving an overlooked meal. I give it 3/10

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

Kaanchana 2 – movie review

Raghavendra Lawrence choreographer, actor and director comes back with the 2nd installment of his super hit Kaanchana . The story continues from the last movie as Raghava (Lawrence) still in fear of darkness, ghosts and clings on his mothers hip whenever he is scared. He is called by his superior where he works as a cameraman in a tv channel to do a show on ghosts to rise the TRP of their channel. He disagrees first but later agrees to join the crew when he comes to know Nandhitha (Taapsee) is leading the show.They choose an abandoned old house near the coast to shoot the show. While shooting on the beach they Nandhitha finds a Thaali buried in the sand, suddenly the weather changes and they are threatened by a storm and they hurry back to their guest house. A series of events happens in the guest house showing a paranormal presence by which crew is tormented. Nandhitha soon finds out that these events began soon after they come into the possession of the Thaali. And she comes to know that it belongs to a distressed soul. What happens next and how they affected buy this forms the rest of the story.

Even though the story is predictable and the cast is very similar to the last film, the entertainment level never reduces . A pure blend of horror and comedy keeps the first half fully engaged. The second half is dominated by the ladies, Taapsee, Kovai Sarala and Nithya Menon who give wonderful performance. Lawrence timing and performance in comedy and horror scenes is good and brings a wave of cheer in the theatre. Songs are a big let down and doesn’t register at all. 2nd half runs at very slow pace and the climax stunts is not well choreographed. Nevertheless the movie is a complete entertainer for all ages and leaves everyone satisfied as they leave the theatre. I give it 5/10
