COURT [ Marathi ] – 2015.   The germ idea for a film is more important. For ex. One in few lakh lunchboxes, gets wrongly delivered. For us it’s a plain fact. But the writer Ritesh Batra was curious on that wrongly delivered lunchbox and made his film ‘The lunchbox’.Read More →


கூழாங்கற்களின் கதை ஒரு திருவிழாவில், பெரிய தேர் வெளியே வந்து, ஊர்சுற்றி திரும்ப நிலைக்கு வரும் நிகழ்வானது, மொத்த ஊரும் கூடிச்சேர்ந்து ஆர்வமாகச் செய்யும் பணி. இதில் தேர் செய்த தச்சன், மின்சார ஒயர் தூக்கி பிடிப்பவர், சக்கரம் நிற்க கட்டை போடுபவர், கயிறு பிடித்து இழுக்கும் கடைக்கோடி மக்கள், கூட்டம் கட்டுப்படுத்தும் காவல்துறையினர் என அனைவரின் பங்களிப்பும் அதில் அடக்கம். அதே போலத்தான் ஒரு திரைப்படமும், அதன் பிரதானRead More →

How a movie impacts an ordi­nary fan? Some extra­or­di­nary movies shake us and the impact con­tin­ues for days together. If we can rec­ol­lect the entire song, it’s not because of our mem­ory power rather it’s the impact the song made us to do so. Sim­i­larly, movies. Though I am ama­teurRead More →

It’s thriller time. Clint East­wood is one of the unavoid­able cre­ators like Woody Allen, Hitch­cock when select­ing a film and he rarely dis­ap­points the fan.

Yutham sei and Mouna guru are good cop thrillers in this year. Can you spot the other similarity ? When I was com­ing out after watch­ing a crap movie, a guy was ask­ing his friend — Machaan.. What was the last good film we watched ?! Do you know the basicRead More →

  It was like after watch­ing Pud­hu­pet­tai in Ban­ga­lore PVR and think­ing much about the content/making of the film in the late hours. I felt the same after watch­ing Adukalam [ AK ]. Also, it once again proved my choice of films based on Direc­tor and not based on actorsRead More →

Maaveeran The tamil ver­sion of Mag­a­d­heera has run equally well in the con­text of a tel­ugu dub­bing film. This once again proves the power of a good film. The good out­come is that this film is saved from a Tamil remake. Remakes and sequels will come out good in veryRead More →

  Vaadu leftlo Veedu rightlo I’m not com­fort­able with remake or remix or any tin­ker­ing to an orig­i­nal piece of art — even though it’s mostly done based on the busi­ness aspects. Good or bad or ugly — once the piece is done, it’s done. There’s no point in redo­ingRead More →


The illutionist [ 2006/Drama ] Directed by : Neil Burger One of the most attractive forms of art is magic – even it fascinates a rationalist not as a belief just as science. It’s always better not to know the secrets behind them. It’s like doing an autopsy to aRead More →
