Halloween 2011

Published by under Family

With a busy weekend preceding Halloween, it felt like a rather low-key Halloween this year. Still we managed to do all the stuff that makes this one of the kids’ favorite events of the year. First up was the pumpkin carving as the kids got together with their cousins yesterday evening. We’d picked up the […]

7aum Arivu

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

The last time A.R.Murugadoss and Suriya teamed up, they gave us Ghajini, a thriller that borrowed its concept from Memento. The two have come together again for 7aum Arivu and this time they have an original concept that unfolds on a bigger canvas.

For his sophomore effort Vaagai Sooda Vaa, Sargunam aims higher in both canvas and scope as he delivers a period film that drives home an important message. The uncomplicated screenplay and natural humor work when […]

Vedi

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

Prabhu Deva’s directorial path in Tamil started off successfully with a superhit in Pokkiri but the going since then hasn’t been smooth with his subsequent films in both the action and the romantic genres – Villu and Engeyum Kaadhal – not doing very well.

Muran

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

While remakes are always disappointing since there’s the feeling that the director took the easy way out, the silver lining is that we are now seeing remakes of films from different genres rather than just copies of masala films from other languages. Muran, from debutant director Rajan Madhav, is one such film whose subject helps […]
