Vivekam Movie Review:
Director Siva sticks to his filmmaking style of ramped-up visuals and hyper-editing, and it does take some time to get used to the rhythm of the film, which is way over the top of over-the-top. It even feels like an assault on our senses, initially. Plus, the scenes involving white people talking in Tamil is quite comical. But once the film gets into flashback mode to narrate the mission to capture Natasha, things starts to get engaging. Karunakaran, who appears in these portions, acts as a good comic relief. The stunts, too, are exciting enough to keep us hooked.
The film really takes off in the second half, by when we have gotten used to its loudness. And Anirudh’s electric (and again, loud) score lends punch to the proceedings. We also get a formidable antagonist, a friend-turned-foe, whom AK has to take down and stop mass destruction. The battle between them is largely one of wits and it is these moves and counter-moves that give the film its rush.
Oh Baby Review:
The first 20 minutes are probably the most critical, as it sets the tone for the entire film. We are introduced to a cranky, whining old lady Baby (Lakshmi) who constantly fights with her daughter-in-law and snaps at almost everbody around her even as her doting friend Chanti (Rajendra Prasad) stands by her trying to calm her down. Her son Nani (Rao Ramesh) is a professor and when her grandson shows a passion for music, she sees in him her own lost dreams. When an altercation with her daughter-in-law results in Baby having to leave the house, all she yearns for is to be young again so that she can follow her passion to do the things she always wanted to. As fate would have it, she walks into a photo studio and transforms into her 24-year-old self again, and all hell breaks loose.
There’s a lot to like about Oh! Baby. The manner in which the old lady behaves like a young woman in her 20s is hilarious. The writing is straightforward, the music (by Mickey J Meyer) is terrific and the acting is top-notch. There’s a moment when Samantha looks at her son and leaps out of her chair to greet him, only to realise that she’s not his 70-year-old mum but a different, much younger woman. Baby’s conundrum is a joy to watch. Her swinging emotions, inner demons, missed opportunities, burning desire — all come to the fore.
Sindhubaadh Tamil Movie Review:
The first half of Sindhubaadh is easily its finest, bearing the stamp of Arun Kumar, who fills it with enjoyable humour, cutesy romance and Vijay Sethupathi-isms. The scene transitions are smooth, Yuvan Shankar Raja’s songs foot-tapping and Vijay Kartik Kannan’s painterly visuals appealing.
But the film somewhat stumbles in the second half, after Thiru faces off against Ling. The problem is that despite the build up to his character, Ling doesn’t come across as a powerful antagonist. We get one too many scenes of Thiru and Super evading Ling’s endless henchmen that things get tiresome after a point. Arun Kumar also stretches plausibility after a point. An exposition involving the operations of the skin trade syndicate also lacks the finesse that we see elsewhere in the craft. But if the film manages to hold our interest, it is mainly because we have come to care about these characters. Vijay Sethupathi’s portrayal of Thiru as a hero with vulnerabilities also infuses some tension into these portions. These things ensure that even if Sindhubaadh isn’t as satisfying as Arun Kumar’s previous films, Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Sethupathi, it isn’t entirely a letdown either.
Dharmaprabhu Tamil Movie Review:
Yogi Babu and Ramesh Thilak, who appear in most of the scenes, have a good chemistry, but the weak writing and flat dialogues leave no impact. The film has a bevy of proven artistes like Radha Ravi, Azhagam Perumal, Rekha, Bose Venkat, Janani Iyer, etc, but sadly none of them are able to lift any sequence because of the ineffective making and screenplay.
There are weak CG shots and the entire mythological set-up looks staged. The inclusion of unnecessary contemporary issues and the bashing of state and central politics are done to death. At one point, the core story gets deviated and viewers are left clueless till the end.

Directed and written by: Jagadeesan Subu
Starring by: Vikranth, Vasundhara Kashyap, Rohit Pathak
A young struggling farmer who takes a loan to run his day to day life from an elderly Muslim man. On the occasion of Bakrid festival, he witnesses a camel and two calves being brought in for the festival purposes and decides to save the younger one. The calf becomes a part of his family and the farmer forms a strong emotional bond with it.
Bakrid Tamil Movie review:
The highlight of the movie is the message it conveys without being preachy, though there are some scenes which get melodramatic. The way the camel returns to Ratnam is a bit filmy though the following scenes make up for that. The director himself has cranked the camera – the village scenes and the ones in Maharashtra and Rajasthan are captured intriguingly. Quite interestingly, the director brings in the Bakrid angle towards the climax again when Ratnam realises that his camel wouldn’t be safe in the desert. Jagadeesan succeeds in trying to say through his story that humans, wherever they hail from, irrespective of their language and culture, are the same insensitive and cruel species while animals have a contrasting nature.

Billed as India’s biggest action entertainer, Saaho is all about the feud among a few members of world’s biggest crime syndicate, based out of Waaji city, somewhere away from India. Some of the over ambitious and brutal men (and a woman) of the gang finish off Roy (Jackie Shroff), their leader, in order to obtain a secret black box through which they aspire to become billionaires.
Meanwhile, cops in India are after a smart thief (Neil Nitin Mukesh) who looted two lakh crore rupees. The team is headed by Ashok (Prabhas) and Amrita (Shraddha Kapoor). After thorough investigation, it’s revealed that there’s a link between the huge sum and Waaji city. The arrival of Vishwa (Arun Vijay), the son of Roy, makes the plot more intriguing as he sets out to find his father’s murderer and the lost money in India.
A movie made on such a grand scale with numerous actors needs a gripping screenplay and convincing characterisations, and that’s exactly what Saaho lacks. There is a hero and the mandatory heroine, and there are way too many villains that it becomes difficult to focus on these many character on screen. None of the antagonists leave a big impact, and this results in a lack of emotional connect with the protagonist.

Directed and written by: Kalyaan
Starring by: Jyotika, Yogi Babu, Revathy
Genres: Action, Comedy
Two smart con-women and a bunch of quirky gangsters are pitted against each other while in pursuit of a mythical vessel fabled for its powers.
Billed as a fun-filled entertainer, Jackpot has a bevy of actors, and some of them have good share of screen presence, which is its major positive aspect. The movie starts with an intriguing story of a century-old inexhaustible vessel and the sequences are woven around it. The plot revolves around Akshaya and Maasha, two con women, who earns money with their tricks go after the vessel which is hidden in a gangster’s home.
Jackpot Tamil Movie Review:
Jyotika, whose character is presented like that of a ‘mass hero’ in many scenes, easily fits into the role, while Revathy is equally convincing. The two of them appear in stylish costumes, dance for that mandatory intro song for mass heroes, utters punch lines and pull off some fight scenes, too. But the actor who shines in every single scene is Anandraj, who essays a dual role. Some of his combination scenes with Thangadurai and Kingsley are hilarious. Rajendran and Yogi Babu manage to entertain with their comedy, though the dialogues that mock the latter’s appearance become repeated which tests patience after a point.
Though the story has nothing new to offer except the plot surrounding the vessel, the film manages to entertain, thanks to some of the comic scenes which are devoid of double-entendre. The background score, however, reminds us of music from a few other movies. The two songs do not add much value to the story but looks vibrant in screen. An unapologetically made fun film, this may appeal to those who love watching movies in this genre.
Female-centric movies with engaging and progressive content have been getting their due of late. Aadai manages to tick several boxes and joins the list, thanks to various factors which work in its favour. Its story revolves around how Kamini (Amala Paul), a bold and care-free girl, deals with the shock of finding herself in a naked state in an abandoned building, following a party, which turns everything topsy-turvy.
It is a delight to watch Amala Paul pull off the character of an unapologetically tomboyish and adventurous girl who works in a TV channel. Her mother (Sriranjini) is worried about her daring nature, but she’s confident of taking care of herself. A sudden birthday party, which her colleagues organise for her in their company’s old building, goes wild, after which a series of intriguing episodes take place.
Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari Movie Review:
Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari (BYBM) opens with an Alcoholics Anonymous-like rehabilitation meeting for drug Addicts. A couple of the members share their stories and in walks Karthik (debutant Dheeraj, who gets a mass hero-like introduction). He begins to narrate his story, which is a cautionary tale against taking drugs.
We see him as a young man who has everything going for him – a happy family that’s only going to get happier as he is about to get married to his sweetheart (Dusshara, promising). But then he gets that fateful call which takes his to his friend Roshan’s apartment. And what begins as a bachelor party involving friends takes a weird turn when Karthik ends up snorting a drug (one that’s is more potent than weed and cocaine, we are told) by accident. And Karthik’s perfect life begins to unravel in ways that he might have hardly imagined.
