Film review ( Tamil )

Nadodigal --Why ?!

I remember once, ‘Pudhiya kalacharam’ came up an article with the heading ‘காத‌ல் ப‌ட‌ங்க‌ள்.. க‌வ‌லைப்ப‌டு ச‌கோத‌ரா !’ – the period where ‘Kaadhal kotai’ started a trend of ‘Kaadhal’ films. I have been watching since the early TRajendar peak periods – whenever a character talks about love/friendship to the 4thwall [ the dialog meant for audience ], it gets a roaring applause [ Indha ponnungalE ippadi thaan kind of dialogues ].

Thalainagaram Engall Subramaniapuram

ஒரு ந‌ட்பு .. ஒரு காத‌ல்.. சில‌ துரோக‌ங்க‌ள். In 1985, 3 different films of great directors came simultaneously with surprisingly the same story line – A middle aged man’s extra-marital friendship with another girl. Sindhu bhairavi [ Nov-11-1985 : KB ], Mudhal mariyaadhai [ Jan-01-1985 : BR ] and Chinna veedu [ Nov-11-1985 : Bhagyaraj ]. The difference is how they worked out the script and visualized the story. Similarly, Pithamagan,

Gilly of Gully :)

Fine entertainment from the Sharks and Rockers teams. When did you laugh out loud while watching a movie ? If you can’t remember, just watch this movie, even if you have watched it already. Luckily, in Tamil cinema industry, we have so many good films based on humour. One such gem is ‘Chennai – 600028’. I still wonder the guts of Venkat prabhu and SPCharan to convince SPB to produce

Uthirip Pookall - Bloomed only once !

“If I get anywhere near what Mahendran sir did in Uthirip pookkall, I’ll be a happy man.” – Director Manirathnam. There are 2 types of directors. Director and director of directors. Tamil film industry possesses the richest chain of great directors. There are few who are predominantly portrayed in this category, starting from Sridhar to Ameer. Mahendran is one such GEM in the industry. If literary works are properly used,

Kadhal - Film in a song's budget

ஒரு ந‌ல்ல‌ திரைப்ப‌ட‌ம் முடிந்த‌வுட‌ன் துவ‌ங்குகிற‌து ‍ ‍‍: ஒளிப்ப‌திவாள‌ர் செழிய‌ன். Do you know why Tamil kings built temple ? [ Review-la engadaa King-um Temple-um 🙂 ] One Discovery channel video of South Indian temples stated that Kings built temple to repent their sins of killing 1000s of people in the name of war and thus avoiding reincarnation. Shankar repented his sins of making stereotyped robin hood movies by producing his films

Ameer Sultan's Saga - Paruthi Veeran.

Paruthiveeran received 2 national awards. One for actor Priyamani and other one is ? The scope of a film is determined by the impact it makes on us. Most of the movies continue the impact for one night and then diminishes slowly. Very few movies make a lasting impact and make Toto to think for a longer time. One such brilliant piece is Paruthiveeran. Everyone knows about the story and

Chithiram Pesudhadi - Nam sindhai Mayangudhadi..

Q : Do you know the meaning of the name ‘Mysskin ‘ – Find the answer at the end of the post. Chithiram Pesudhadi was the first film written and directed by Mysskin. Previously, he worked as an associate with Kathir and Vincent Selva. With kathir he didn’t work in a film but spent some months on story discussion. With V.Selva he worked in “Youth” and “Jithan“. Though the working

Anjaathey - Hidden thoughts and knots.

This is not going to be a film review. Instead, I just listed the observations. * No computer graphics were used in the entire movie.. Mysskin [ Mys ] asks why do we need CG for a movie.. Fourth-wall blinks without answers. * Naren’s character gets introduced without any footwear [ to symbolise that he is such an irresponsible rogue ]. His transformation happens after the “paati” episode. Once they
