The South Indian box office this weekend is buzzing with new releases. With Maari 2, Kanaa, Silukkuvarupatti Singam, Adanga Maru, KGF and Antariksham 9000 hitting screens today, cinegoers are in for a treat this weekend. From action to comedy, there is enough for everyone to pick. While Dhanush returns as the moustache-twirling rowdy in Maari 2, Varun Tej’s space drama Antariksham 9000 KMPH promises an edge-of-the-seat experience.

Giving tough competition to these releases will be woman-centric sports film Kanaa, action-comedy Silukkuvarupatti Singam and Jayam Ravi’s cop-thriller Adanga Maru. We also have Yash’s Kannada film KGF, which has been creating buzz ever since its trailer launched.

KGF: Our verdict

When the story moves out of Bombay, the narration begins to lose steam. It is as if director Prashanth Neel, who is also the writer of the film, was saving the remaining best bits for the second part. After a point, he drives the film on an empty tank. We learn about Rocky’s battle exploits through the words of a veteran journalist, played by Anath Nag. And later Prashanth adds two more narrators within the narration of Anath Nag to build the legend of Rocky. The film works like folklore, which you tell mere mortals like the office assistant in the film, who gets engrossed in the story that he forgets about constant bullying he faces at the workplace.

Sai Pallavi on Maari 2

“Balaji Mohan and I discussed a lot before we went ahead with the shoot. I am lucky enough to be a part of the film in which Ilaiyaraaja sir has sung. I never thought this would happen. The crew members made me feel very comfortable. Tovino, you have worked so hard for this film. Thanks to Vasuki for giving me a beautiful look which is different from my other films. Dhanush compliments others and is so real. Thanks to Dhanush for being an amazing co-star and a mentor. I had a great time shooting. Towards the end, I felt bad because the shooting was ending. We were like family. Thank you so much for all the fans for your love. It feels nice to be loved by people," Sai Pallavi said at the Maari 2 press meet.

Sankalp Reddy on Antariksham 9000 KMPH

In an interview, Antariksham 9000 KMPH director Sankalp Reddy said, "The story is about four astronauts who are on a mission. During their visit to space, they face unexpected hurdles. So, how they solve those issues is the basic outline of the story. In two hours twenty minutes of the film, almost one and a half hours of the story takes place in space."

Kanaa: Our verdict

What works wonderfully is the writing. There is humour and there are also several poignant father-daughter emotions all through. A big thumbs-up to Aishwarya Rajesh, who has convincingly pulled off Kausalya. In particular, I quite liked the scene where Sathyaraj metamorphoses from a farmer into an advocate of women’s rights. He brings Murugesan to life on screen.

Happy to have scored for Adanga Maru, says Sam CS

Music director Sam CS posted on Twitter, "Watch this action packed #AdangaMaru in cinemas from today, happy to have scored for the film. All the very best to @dirkarthi on making debut, plenty more to come your way. Wishing good luck to all my other teammates. @actor_jayamravi @dirkarthi @raashikhanna @sujataa_HMM"

Vijay Sethupathi's Seethakaathi opened on December 20 to mixed reviews. The Indian Express film critic S Subhakeerthana noted in her review, "Despite an engaging screenplay, Seethakaathi just doesn’t come together as a cohesive whole. Part of the problem, I think is the core idea. Maybe, I couldn’t connect with Ayya. You either connect or you don’t. There are no in-betweens. Seethakaathi affects us, impacts us, and attempts to move us. But the attempt isn’t wholly achieved."
