Raavanan

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

Raavanan once again finds Mani Rathnam take on a well-known story and put his own spin on it. It is a rather interesting spin told in a captivatingly succinct style, with some gorgeous visuals providing the backdrop. Still, the weak characterization of the most important character prevents the film from meeting all of its aspirations. […]

Madhumita would seem to be a rather surprising […]

Singam

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

Though Hari started strong with Thamizh and Saamy, his subsequent films were disappointing, the worst of which were soaked in gratuitous violence(Aaru) and regressive melodrama(his last film, Seval). But he shows us that he hasn’t completely lost his touch in Singam, his 10th film. With able support from an in-form Suriya, he crafts a racy […]
