Saguni

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

With 5 successive hits under his belt, Karthi is definitely one of the hottest young stars in Tamil cinema now. His latest film Saguni sees him as a wily young man who is forced to play politics to get what he wants. It had the potential to be another different film for the actor but […]

Director Magilzh Thirumeni seems to be following his mentor Gautham Menon’s footsteps quite faithfully. Gautham started his career with an urban romance Minnale and then shifted tracks to make the thriller Kaakka Kaakka. Magilzh too, after debuting with the urban romance Mundhinam Paarthene, has opted to make an action film for his sophomore effort. Thadaiyara […]

Leelai

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

Romance in Tamil cinema used to be limited to the villages but we’ve recently had a few films that tackled romance in an urban setting. Leelai is another addition to the list. The single-note storyline causes the film to sag in the middle but the believable characters and natural conversations make it quite engaging on […]

Rewind Review – Agni Natchathiram

Published by under Review,Tamil Cinema

After Mouna Raagam and Naayagan, Manirathnam was one of the most promising directors on the Tamil cinema landscape.
