What shall you do if you are a director who made two of the most expensive movies in the country and made them work in the terms of economy and environment? Definitely, I would not have put my hands up to remake India’s most celebrated movie of the century. Well, I often believe that Shankar com...Read more

As an ardent fan and armchair critic of Tamil Cinema, one of my vows in 2011 was to unload myself of any forethoughts/expectations/ bias et al about the movie before the flash of the censor certificate. I had success in my six previous attempts, but I flattered to deceive for KO. I think it reas...Read more

A phenomenon called Hatrick : Chetan Sharma, Kapil Dev, HarbajanSingh and Irfan Pathan were the four Indian bowlers to achieve an international hatrick. Even they would be surprised on the importance of a hattrick for a cinema star or director. For quite a while, any rising star or director in K...Read more

'The plot is very small comparing with the length of the movie' - That set the tone for the review Anna...It is a worthwhile movie given the length. And as I told you yesterday, they kept us waiting for a hour and half to start the movie at Archana...In any case, a yawn was inevitable in the unsciss...ored version...Good review, Anna - Its a long time since I am writing back... Poo seems OK to Kumudam (they jusy gave Sumaar to Jeyamkondan) and Vikatan was generous with a 44... The next in my list is 2020 before Maruthi closes the movie...Read More

I can never agree Sivaji is a crap. If you are looking for entertainment, there is an overdose of it in Sivaji. There are socially relevant materials as well. The concepts of Commission Pricing, Money Laundering, Black Money have been neatly portrayed. I frankly cant uderstand why people cannot such a good movie.Read More

Another Good One, your style Anna...I was stunned by the way so many young people in the song cheered for 'Siru Ponmani Asayum'. I thought Jai has to improve his voice modulation a little bit. Nonetheless, it was a good watch and keeping with the peer movies, it is miles ahead.

Hi Suresh...Even I had a disjointed feeling when I came out the first time... That was when we were all fully loaded with expectations...Even Rajni said that such hereculean expectations from the audience worried him...I dunno why, I had dreams of Sivaji turning out into a horror some six months bef...ore the release...However when I discarded the names of Rajni, Shankar, ARR, KV and others and watched it for the fourth time, it was great cinematic viewing for pleasure...Only when I watched without expectations or the big names, I could enjoy some great subtelities in the movie...I watched it 12 times in as many theathres in Coimbatore...Read More

Hi Ajayan Na (Hope you havent forgotten me) I was really enthused by the subject na - Black Money, Money Laundering, Commission Pricing. It is really a subject that has to be touched upon by someone in Tamil Cinema. Murugadoss touched a bit on Commission Pricing in Ramana (when the Auto Driver ...explains his reasonable charging to the girl outside the temple). I thought Shankar who could narrate such stories with richness let us of here. I watched it twice na...It seemed to have all the grandeur a Shankar movie promises, but his plot seemed to run haywire...And as far as Rajni fans are concerned, they seldom complain and are only happy with his new looks and actions...My take is here na, : As for V for Vendetta, it is a good and gore movie na...It is watchable and can be called the Indian Cinema essence suited to Hollywood. I am writing a script called 'Rajnikanth', which is once again a team's crusade against a corrupt society, without a drop of violence, I will come to you once I finish the script na,,,, Urs always RathnavelRead More

The Vidya Balan plot has a huge significance. When Abhi visits Maddya house and meets Vidya and when Madhavan sums it al saying ;'None of us is going to change' - I would have never sacrificed that part... I dont think it did not have emotional touces. As in every Mani movie, it is heavily underplay...ed...And reg. ur commenbts on Indian making it big in business only through dishonest policies and media support...It is 101% damn true with our emotionally active population and economically inactive governmentRead More

He dreams big and realizes big. He knows the pulse of the audience. He knows how to best promote his movie. And most importantly, he wants to take this industry to a new level. Hats off to Shankar(the producer). But for him, I don’t think stories like those of Kaadhal, Imsai Arasan and Veyil would h...ave surfaced. I would like to conclude what the normally modest Shankar said about Veyil “If the film was released in some other foreign language, they would have applauded this as an exempelary world cinema. How does it feel to make such movies in your own language?”. I couldn’t have agreed more. Read More

Apart from the heat, Veyil has thrown light on some people. The high five are Pasupathy, Bharath, G.V.Prakash,Mathi and Vasanthabalan. Pasupathy is mind blowing. He is on a route that only two doyens of Tamil cinema have crossed successfully - From the most feared villain to the most loved hero. Raj...nikanth and Sathayraj are two unique products of Tamil Cinema. They started as fearsome villains who could easily grab notice. Their flair for comedy took them into light hearted roles and they started winning hearts. Subsequently, they were able to prove their mettle as heroes with versatile roles. Pasupathy does the same. After a carving a niche for himself in negative roles, he captured the attention of one and all with comic performances in Mumbai Xpress and Maja. The transistion to the main character could not have come at a better time. Good Job. Bharath does a good job. He always clicks for Shankar and if he is not the sole hero. It has been the perfect ending to a dream year for him(Of course,if he forgets Chennai Kadhal). GV Prakash would have definitely done his uncle a r rahman proud with his debut. Let us wait atleast for his second movie before we dub him as the second genius from the rahman family. Be it the opening scene or the captivating climax which he captures in the dark or the entire scenes in between which he shows in broad daylight, Mathi has used the lights of Veyil to get into the limelight. Vasanthabalan has said this movie was inspired by his own failures in life. For everyone who has been fazed by failures, the pain is easily evident. Apart from his own inspiration, it was his perspiration that has made Veyil what it is. He has definitely emerged out of the dark with Veyil. He dreams big and realizes big. He knows the pulse of the audience.Read More
