Nibunan movie review: The movie progresses at a considerable pace, only mildly hampered by the romance between Kalidas (Arjun Sarja) and Shilpa (Shruthi Hariharan). The cinematography, while plays mildly with colours, is fairly straightforward.
Maragatha Naanayam movie review: While most of the horror-comedies in Tamil just follow a set of rules, Maragatha Naanayam refuses to be a cliche in every turn of the narration and keeps the audience hooked to the story. The film has Aadhi and Nikki Galrani in lead roles.
