• A Softer Than Expected, But Hugely Entertaining And Beautifully Made Street-Rapper Story

  • Thackeray is a warts-and-none propaganda film about a man who peddled hate and keenly fostered a sense of otherness (first South Indians, then Muslims). The trailer may be offensive, but it’s honest

  • A not-exactly-needed sequel, but a solid delivery mechanism for Kamal-isms

  • The second Rajini-Ranjith outing is better than ‘Kabali’, but still an odd fit for both…

  • There are many wonderful moments in October, but the epiphany never quite arrives. Some will say that’s okay, that just the experience is enough. I guess I wanted more from what I found a fascinating experiment rather than a fulfilling film.

  • Kabali doesn’t pander to his fans. No comedy. No punch lines. And yet, it must be said that Rajinikanth does more for the movie than the movie does for him.

  • The overt attempts of feminist touches come across as manufactured. The reconciliation in the end too isn’t good enough. At least Alice in Wonderland had Tim Burton’s visual artistry. This one isn’t remotely interesting in that regard, even if watched with a magnifying glass.

  • An epic reimagining of the typical love story touches (and crushes) the heart…

  • Manithan generally hovers in the hmmm-not-all-that-bad-zone because it’s such a crowd-pleasing script.

  • Characters come and go – a journalist who doesn’t believe in research, a cop who doubts Arvind, a suspect who worked as a driver for one of the victims. A heavily made-up Aishwarya Rajesh reminds us, grimly, that one Kaaka Muttai does not a Kollywood career make. Even the serial killer’s motive is underwhelming. And he won’t shut up either.
