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

Vikram Vedha – Movie review


Huge release of this week is from the husband & wife / director & writer duo Pushkar – Gayathri , who has come back after seven years with a strong screenplay and characters with the best actors in the industry. Story starts with Vikram (Madhavan) a honest but ruthless encounter specialist who is given a task of hunting a gangster Vedha ( Vijay Sethupathy). In this cat and mouse game both Vikram and Vedha take hits which affects them emotionally and physically. Each time as Vikram gets closer to Vedha, he is pushed to judge his character as a opportunist , gangster and as a brother . Vedha takes Vikram into maze of events which eventually leads Vikram to the truth.
Huge success of this film is how each and every technician and actor has given 100% and applause goes to the director – writer duo who has brought that to effect on screen. Both Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy both were true to their character which elevates them to another level in their careers . Background score and music engages the audience to each scene and makes it a memorable one. There are a few scenes which might not be to same measure, and there is a lag in the first half which is bearly noticeable towards the end. Pushkar & Gayathri welcome back and you get 8/10 for this film.

Kaatru Veliyidai – Movie review

Varun Aka VC ( Karthi) is an Indian air force pilot, a self-centered character who falls in love with Leela ( Adithi Rao) a doctor .  Leela knowing Varun’s Character is immensely attracted to him and eventually falls for him. Even as their love grows, there is always an indifference which breaks them time to time. Leela finally breaks up with when Varun he is called in for duty at war .When Varun falls behind enemy lines and captured, the only thing keeping him alive is his love. Does Varun get back to Leela or is it too late for them? Rest forms the story.

There is always a huge expectancy on all Mani Rathinam’s film and this time Kaatru veliyidai was over hyped.  But the movie fails as the content is not emotionally connected. Though it starts well, its forced with unnecessary scenes which blocks the flow . Karthi though has been made to look like an air force pilot, his face expressions in sensitive scenes makes the audiences groan. Adithi Rao gives a flawless performance. The film is partially saved only by the brilliance of Ravi Varman the cinematographer. His work has mesmerized the audience though the content was a letdown. A R Rahman shines in the songs, but is lost in the BGM. With only few good scenes to talk about Kaartu veliyidai disappoints fans. It gets 3/10
