This week, cinephiles have a bunch of options at the box office down south. Three of the most-awaited Tamil films have hit the screens today and each one is different from the other.

First up, we have Peranbu, which has already garnered a very positive response from critics and celebrities who had the opportunity to watch the movie in a special screening. The film starring Mammootty in the lead role explores the complex relationship between a father and his differently abled daughter. It is directed by National-Award winning director Ram and stars Anjali, Sadhana, Anjali Ameer and Samuthirakani among others.

MOVIE REVIEWS: Sarvam Thaala Mayam | Peranbu

Director Rajiv Menon’s Sarvam Thaala Mayam has finally hit the screens. It stars music director-turned-actor GV Prakash Kumar in the lead role. Besides writing, producing and directing, Rajiv has also scored two songs for the musical drama along with Oscar-winner AR Rahman.

And then we have Simbu’s Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven, an out-and-out commercial potboiler. It is the official remake of hit Telugu film Attarintiki Daredi (2013). Simbu has stepped into the shoes of Pawan Kalyan, while Megha Akash and Catherine Tresa play the female leads. Directed by Sundar C, Lyca Productions has bankrolled Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven.

Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven: Our verdict

Though Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven (an official remake of Pawan Kalyan’s Attarintiki Daredi) is a Sundar C film, it never felt like one – at least in the beginning. I know what you are thinking next. No, it never felt like Simbu’s film either. Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven is a glorification of its protagonist, Simbu, who plays a businessman.

Peranbu: Our verdict's S Subhakeerthana gave Perandu a four-star rating. She wrote in her review, "Mammootty as a confused parent, Amudhavan, is his most natural self. It is amazing how a Superstar of his stature quickly sheds the glitz when given a challenging script. Sadhana tugs at your heartstrings as Paapa as she delivers her role with great aplomb. Her innocent face haunts you long after the film is over. How Meera becomes a part of Amudhavan’s life has been told poignantly, and it’s one of the brilliant climaxes ever written in the history of Tamil cinema."

Why don’t people who make the mridangam play it?: Rajiv Menon

Talking to The Hindu, Sarvam Thaala Mayam director Rajiv Menon said, "The germ of the storyline of Sarvam Thaala Mayam stemmed from one question: why don’t people who make the mridangam play it? For the last 150 years, why haven’t we seen anyone from the manufacturer’s community playing the instrument? We don’t know where the problem lies but it’s a fact that there is an under-representation."
