Review: Masala Padam is an interesting film

Review: Masala Padam is an interesting film

The film keeps you engrossed for most part, says S Saraswathi. Cinematographer-turned-director Laxman Kumar’s Masala Padam (Masala Film) has been made with the sole intent of condemning film critics.   The film tells us their version of the story, their explanation as to why they follow a certain template and why it sets the cash registers ringing at the box office each time.  The movie opens with a hardcore film blogger sitting in a theatre amongst screaming fans, wondering ..., 10 hours ago

Review: Puli fails to impress

Puli is an uninspiring fantasy adventure film, feels S Saraswathi. Fantasy adventure film Puli managed to generate a lot of intrigue, thanks to presence of diva Sridevi, who returns to Tamil cinema after 29 years. But despite her effort, the film has nothing to hold your attention.  Director Chimbu Deven takes his own time to get to the plot of the film, which is quite stale.  Extremely slow-paced, the film narrates a good versus evil story of a lost son returning to claim ...

Review: Kuttram Kadithal is brilliant

Director Bramma's Kuttram Kadithal is an intense drama that questions the adequacy of our school system, says S Saraswathi.

Directed by debutant Bramma, the film throws light on the complexities of our present-day education system.

Review: Yatchan is monotonous

Yatchan is an unexciting action comedy, writes S Saraswathi. Director Vishnuvardhan's Yatchan (Puppeteer) is based on a novel by Suba.  The film features an ensemble cast of his younger brother Kreshna, Arya, Deepa Sannidhi, Swati Reddy, Adil Hussain, Thambi Ramaiah and several others.  Another important character in the film is Ajith, who makes an impression without even appearing in the film. Filmmakers seem to be obsessed with him. Vaalu, which released last month, had ...

Review: Maya is a truly haunting experience

Director Ashwin Saravanan’s Maya is a gripping supernatural thriller. S Saraswathi recommends.  Basking in the success of Thani Oruvan, the gorgeous Nayanthara comes up with yet another brilliant performance in debutant director Ashwin Saravanan’s Maya. Nedunchalai fame Aari co-stars in the film, along with Amzath Khan, Lakshmi Priyaa Chandramouli, Mime Gopi and Robo Shankar.

Review: Strawberry is a decent directorial debut

Tamil film Strawberry works because of its storyline, says S Saraswathi. National award-winning lyricist Pa Vijay makes his directorial debut with a horror film titled Strawberry. The film is loaded with computer graphics designed to give you the creeps, but they are too drab and predictable to make any real impact. The director, however, more than makes up with his hard-hitting storyline that has you completely hooked.The film throws light on the gross negligence and apathy of private schools ...
