Kaaka Muttai

This movie bagged two National awards and was marked a strong debut for the Director Manikandan. The plot circles around two young slum kids who are desperate to have a pizza, after watching a famous film star Silambarasan, eating the pizza at the opening ceremony of the pizza shop. From the slums of Chennai, the lads, who call themselves as Periya Kaaka Muttai and Chinna Kaaka Muttai, go to the quirkiest of an extent to earn that Rs 300 needed to buy them this Italian delicacy from an outlet which opens next to their shanty. This movie is a charming little treat with unbelievably good acting skills delivered by the young boys. Aishwarya, the young mother of two kids is at her best. No matter, if you don’t understand Tamil, you just won’t get enough of these adorable kids. There is a common perception about award films that they are boring and made for the critics. The entertainment element is normally missing and it would be melodramatic, and preachy. However, Kaaka Muttai is indeed an exception.  It is lively, cheerful and entertains big time.

It is all about the life and times of two kids Periya Kakka Muttai (Vignesh) and his younger brother Chinna Kaaka Muttai (Ramesh). The poignant beauty of the film is that director Manikandan has filmed it in such a way that he portrays the lifestyle of the slum people as it is. Kaaka Muttai is a winner and has its heart-tugging moments, largely due to its main actors. GV Prakash’s background score and songs gel well with the theme and Kishore’s cuttings are picture perfect. Overall, Kaaka Muttai is a slice of life vibrant film which is sure to put a big smile on your face as you are stepping out of the movie hall. Give it a chance and enjoy your treat!

The pair is the most recently loved and their chemistry had so much positivity. This is directed by one of the successful directors of the Kollywood industry, Mani Ratnam.

With alluring music at a different energy level, the movie is all about cute moments and love and love and love.

If Mani captures the young urban romance with Aadhi and Tara, the traditional aesthetic romance is conveyed through the Ganapathy (Prakash Raj) and Bhavani (Leela Samson) pair, the latter is affected by Alzheimer disease. The way Tara and Aadhi accept the traditional married life of Bhavani and Ganapathy is another poignant moment in the film, and the cute climax!! Claps!

The industry’s first excellent science fiction comedy movie with a fine finish is named as Indru Netru Naalai. This unusual combination has worked its way to success for the debutant director Ravi Kumar. The film has you hooked from the opening scene and keeps you entertained until the end. The plot revolves around two friends who discover a time machine. In 20165, a scientist programs a time machine for a test run which fails to return. The story is about how a particular incident is linked with one another. It’s a centum in the background score by the trending composer ‘Hiphop Tamizha Aadhi’.

The deliberately paced narrative ensures you identify with the predicament of the characters. Every character is well etched and the cast perfectly chosen. Vishnu seems to be on a roll and totally at ease with the character, giving a natural and effortless performance with no excess drama. Mia George, Jayaprakash, Sai Ravi, who plays the antagonist, and T M Karthik, the geeky scientist, are all equally impressive. But it is undoubtedly the director, who deserves all the credit. His talent is apparent and the film is worth watching, especially if you are a lover of the unusual combination.

Enakkul Oruvan is another bold attempt in 2015 by a debutant director Prasath Ramar. With a unique plot, the movie keeps you engaged in the suspense throughout. Siddharth has given a remarkable performance in his hit flick, Enakkul Oruvan. The movie is a psychological thriller, Enakkul Oruvan narrates two parallel tales, in which one is formed by the man’s dissatisfaction with his own life and a deep desire to experience a simple life as he wished. Both the stories are parallel and interlinked to each other. The story keeps you in suspense until the end.

One part involves a guy who suffers from insomnia and due to some wrong influences, takes in an unnecessary drug that induces sleep. For a difference, he is introduced to a whole new world in his dreams. In the other, an extremely rich and famous movie star, who can have anything he wishes, without any struggle. Both stories move forward simultaneously, seamlessly shifting between reality and the dream world. Every character in the film plays a dual role, with a slight modification.

Darling

Here comes, another horror flick, decoded in a humorous way. Although a remake, this marked a debut as an actor, for the famous music composer G V Prakash. The plot is about three youngsters, who decide to suicide in a house, away from the city. Before they could decide anything in their life, the ghost does. The female lead Nikki Galrani marked her first step as a female lead in the Tamil Industry and her acting skills are remarkable. Bala Saravanan, Karunas, and Rajendran are exceptional and certain scenes make us laugh until stomach hurts. Especially, when Karunas prays to god to help them to take a suicide attempt, we have no other option other than going ROFL.

Each of the four people, Karunas included, has their own past, which they consider as their reason to die. Again, the movie is a magic of a debutant director Sam Anton. This movie is compared to last year’s super hit horror comedy ‘Yamiruka Bayamey’. As in that film, the ghost here terrifies the other characters but there is no mortal threat. Recently, the trailer of Darling’s sequel has been released and is raised the expectation level. Now, this is a promising movie that is worth a watch.

Kanchana 2

Kanchana 2 is the third part in the Muni series. The movie is a horror with comedy with delightful performances. The action, emotion, and the high-octane dance numbers add a plus to the movie and the director-choreographer-actor Lawrence. This time, it is not about one, but six ghosts, who are out to avenge their death. The story starts with a crew trying to make a catchy program to get a raise in the TRP rating. Even as the shooting begins, the crew senses something creepy in the atmosphere. When Taapsee finds an old mangal sutra buried in the sand, things spiral out of control.

The songs in the movie were composed by four composers and everything turns out to be pleasant, from dance numbers to romantic numbers. When it comes to the performance, Taapsee, one of the female leads, gives a solid performance, especially the scenes where she transforms into ghost Ganga is terrific. The ghost part is played by Nithya Menon, as a physically challenged girl. Such a brilliant performance. Kanchana 2 is the perfect movie for people who are looking for some full on entertainment.
