Naachiyaar | Tamil | Feb 16, 2018
Naachiyaar movie review: Jyothika, GV Prakash Kumar shine in a surprisingly ‘soft’ Bala movie. Structured as a ‘whodunit’ film, Naachiyaar uses the unreliable narrator potently. The final reveal isn’t a surprise, but there is enough pathos to keep you invested. The film’s crisp run-time is another added advantage.3/5full review

Savarakathi | Tamil | Feb 9, 2018
Ram, Mysskin starrer is oddly fulfilling. This Ram and Mysskin starrer is an odd film that is tough to slot. It doesn’t floor you in amazement. But it keeps you hooked with its weird charm3/5full review

Kalakalappu 2 | Tamil | Feb 9, 2018
There is nothing to cheer about in this Sundar C film. In Tamil, Kalakalapu mean happiness or cheerfulness. But there is absolutely nothing in Kalakalapu 2 to cheer about. Nor is happiness the feeling that the film leaves you with as you walk out of the theater.1.5/5full review

Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren | Tamil | Feb 2, 2018
The Vijay Sethupathi starrer is an erratic, overstretched film. Thanks to a completely unpardonable run time of almost two and a half hours, what starts as funny ends up leaving us exasperated.2/5full review

Nimir | Tamil | Jan 26, 2018
This Udhayanidhi Stalin film is a faithful remake. Helmed by Priyadharshan, Nimir is a fairly faithful remake that overreaches at points to satisfy the mainstream. Here is our review of the Udhayanidhi starrer.2.5/5full review

Sketch | Tamil | Jan 12, 2018
Sketch movie review: Just one question, why Vikram why?. I am still wondering why Vikram agreed to the film. The actor’s screen presence is the only reason why I was looking at the screen. His swagger and good looks are admirable but Sketch isn’t a role for someone of his calibre.1.5/5full review

Thaanaa Serndha Koottam | Tamil | Jan 12, 2018
The Suriya and Keerthy Suresh starrer is a fairly entertaining film. Walk in without expectation and let the Suriya and Keerthy Suresh starrer’s humour entertain you. As hard as the film tries to be serious, it is tough to take it so2.5/5full review

Gulaebaghavali | Tamil | Jan 12, 2018
Gulaebaghavali movie review: This Hansika Motwani-Prabhudheva starrer is inconsistent. Gulaebaghavali is a mindless caper that relies on its laughs to help the viewer ride through the logic loopholes. Several recent movies have fallen under this new genre of ‘mindless entertainers’.2/5full review

Balloon | Tamil | Dec 29, 2017
Balloon’s story or scares aren’t novel but the laughs are. The humour and one-liners are the saving grace in this film, that is a predictable mish-mash of some memorable horror moments from the past2/5full review

Sakka Podu Podu Raja | Tamil | Dec 22, 2017
Santhanam offers a string of tired cliches. Helmed by Sethuraman, Sakka Podu Podu Raja has Santhanam, Vivek and Vaibhavi Shandilya among others. Simbu has composed the music for the film.1.5/5full review
