An armchair philosopher. Procrastinator. Fledgling screenwriter. Subhakeerthana is a Copy Editor at Indian Express. She spends her time watching Tamil classics and listening to Ilaiyaraaja. Moved by films, characters and books.
Kanchana 3 movie review: Kanchana 3 is a frustratingly cringe-worthy piece of work masquerading as “horror comedy” that makes you squirm. Beware, this is a fine example of how sequels shouldn’t be made.
Debutant director-software engineer Vivek Elangovan tries his best to tick all the boxes that would make a thriller. He wants his story to be racy, unpredictable and full of twists. Though Elangovan manages to achieve everything in bits and pieces, Vellaipookal fails to strike a chord with you.
Mehandi Circus movie review: Shweta Tripathi shines in this heart-crushing love story and you feel for her character when she says, “I didn’t know who you were till last month; now, you mean the world to me.” The Masaan girl is absolutely charming when she is not trying too hard.
In Tamil cinema, cop-based outings have always proved to be a winning formula at the box office. From Sivaji Ganesan, Kamal Haasan, Vikram to Ajith, Suriya, Karthi and Vijay Sethupathi, almost every actor worth his salt has played the cop.
Uriyadi 2 movie review: Despite serious storytelling, Uriyadi 2 doesn’t work. When you see the film, it feels like you’re sitting in a chemistry classroom. Produced by Suriya under his banner 2D Entertainment, the film is an image-boosting exercise for Vijay Kumar.
