  1. Conversation on Velaikkaran

    January 1, 2018 by Ajay

    Ajay: Sounds a little ironical that we want to do a conversation about a movie that is filled with just conversations right?

    Sai: Well, yes. After Visu’s movies, this is probably the one with most dialogues I believe :). What is your overall feeling about it though?

    A: I kind of liked it. It kept me entertained. But the filmmaking was lazy. He had a good story to tell but just didn’t tell it the right way, I felt. What about you?

    S: I see. I thought even the story went haphazard which is quite surprising because Subha are credited as co-writers. I loved some directorial touches actually – especially the mirror scenes with Arivu (Sivakarthikeyan) and Adi (Fahaadh Faasil), where they explain their ideologies for their audience.

    A: As BR said in his recent video, Mohan Raja has definitely evolved as a filmmaker. Or should I say, he gets his inspirations from the right place now?

  2. Aram

    November 13, 2017 by Ajay

    I was glad this didn’t turn out to be another Thanneer Thanner or Kathi (apologies for mentioning both these films in the same sentence). I understand that movies are a mass medium and having political commentary and criticizing the people in power are important but the problem with cinema is that something is considered a cliche so soon. It’s the writers’ responsibility to put forth their message in as non-cliched manner as possible so that the target audience both get the message and are also able to enjoy the film. Very few films get this balance right. And Aram isn’t one of them.

  3. Idhu Namma Aalu – Intentional Neurotoxic Act

    June 6, 2016 by Guest Author

    Not a review per se, just a coherent rant about this film I watched recently called Idhu Namma Aalu.

    When I exited the theatre after watching Idhu Namma Aalu, I wondered if there’s a word exclusive to the world of Kollywood films, to point out that the film had its fun moments for a few minutes, and for the rest of the time you wished you had every strand of hair pulled off from your skin or be stabbed like Jon Snow. Why don’t they put statutory warning messages ahead of such films?

    Let me be the first one to try and coin a term/reference metric that refers to any motion feature which is worth just ten minutes of your time and you are better off watching it on YouTube, as a video titled “Best comedy scene from ….” instead of experiencing an ordeal in the theatre.

    *thinks*

    INA!

    The term is INA- an acronym that stands for Intentional Neurotoxic Act (‘Intentional’ being the operative word.)Fitting, isn’t it? I hope, in the near future we see people use this term widely.

    Macha! How was the movie da?” “It’s not bad. But it’s INA. Better to stay away.
