Suspense Thriller movies have been attempted in Tollywood earlier, but Karthikeya comes at a time when Suspense thriller movies are as good as extinct in Tollywood. And that’s its USP. The History – in Cartoonish way, Conversations for Blindfaith – Belief, Comparisons between
After “Swamy Ra Ra”, Nikhil and Swathi decided to test their luck at the box office with the film “Karthikeya”. This venture is stated to have the mythological touch along with emotions and thrill. This youthful thriller came on to the screens with huge hype. Read on to know whether
Here is yet another attempt to mix fact and fiction to dish out a suspense thriller with a rom-com flavour. Director Chandoo Mondeti comes with an interesting topping called science but this smattering of science doesn't salvage an otherwise pedestrian story-telling exercise.
Farah Khan’s magnum opus Happy New Year is built on a foundation of the rock hard and sometimes podgy (think Abhishek and Boman) abs of her star cast. Recurring dialogue from her previous movies (SRK sprouting Main Hoon Na and a reference to Dard-E-Disco), gestures (SRK’s arms-wide-
Director Farah Khan doesn’t do dark films. Her films are festive and celebrate all things Bollywood — the colour, the feverish dance moves and hyperbolic emotions. But she seems to have taken a misstep with Happy New Year — despite re-uniting with her muse Shah Rukh Khan
She’s a Shah Rukh Khan fangirl, and her latest ‘Happy New Year’ is yet-another extravagant display of her extreme love for him. Since he’s responsible for turning her first two films into massive money spinners, and costing her a huge loss when he didn’t face the camera, you can’t blame
Happy New Year is a muddled mess which has its own warm moments but as a package fails to work. Three hours of Shah Rukh flaunting his abs and swagger gets too much to take minus a strong storyline. Farah Khan has redeemed Tees Maar Khan but Happy New Year is her most mediocre work.
Exactly ten years ago, the famous choreographer Farah Khan made her directorial debut with MAIN HOON NA, a Shah Rukh Khan starrer film that gave a major career boost to many names associated with it. She followed it up with yet another mega blockbuster OM SHANTI OM
We all know Farah Khan loves her escapist entertainers and, literally, her own ones as well. She packs her scenes with spot-the-reference cues, even some self-referencing ones, generously. A vault is named after the retro heist film Shaalimar, the dancer heroine is Mohini
Farah Khan's masala flick Happy New Year has everything going well businesswise but it's extremely low on content. It's grand, beautiful, shot in exotic locations across Dubai, has all the SRK moves which fans love, a hit Jodi (Shah Rukh Khan - Deepika Padukone)
For SRK critics or not-so-SRK-fans, Happy New Year might seem a bit too much to handle. Overall the film goes from being unintentionally funny, occasionally idiotic and irritating often; thanks to Abhishek Bachchan and Sonu Sood’s presence in the film. We felt that Deepika was forced into
It's the festive time and our Hindi film industry is back with another star studded big budget film to cater its cinema loving audience. The big films are planned as per the festive season, which now includes holidays like Eid, Dussehra, Christmas, Diwali and many more.
When a film opens with the leading man mouthing a series of his world-famous dialogues, you can have two reactions. One, grin a knowing grin, and chuckle “kyonki badi badi picture mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hain”. Two, groan and think aloud–couldn’t they think of one new
When you have a reigning superstar, a spectacular ensemble cast and a canvas as vivid as your imagination, it’s indeed clever thinking to adapt the most successful plot of Bollywood and turn it into a colorful visual spectacle. Director Farah Khan does just that in one of the most awaited
Farah Khan's movies are never about logic, great loophole free storylines or even thought generating grounded cinema. They are the definition of the word 'Bollywood'. Entertaining, cheeky and pompous. At least they are supposed to be. One of the biggest and most anticipated movies of
When there is talk of diamonds in a Bollywood film, can top security vaults, thumb impression of one person only entry and dare devilry daylight robbery be far behind? Throw in an ailing Maa, another Maa obsessed son, yet another son-out-to-take-his-father’s-badlaa and a poor girl’s izzat
A good man and a lovable husband getting entrapped by another women, while the simple homely wife fight back to win her husband back. A story that brings into mind the several Hollywood and Bollywood movies. A remake of the Telugu movie Missamma, Namsathe Madam, is the story of a honey trapped man.
Hari's films hew to a certain formula. The hero will be a daring, rustic-looking young man with brawns and brains, his family will be so huge that it will include most of the supporting actors in Tamil cinema, the heroine will be a girl who switches from modern clothes to traditional ones during
Anybody who has watched at least two of all the Tamil films directed by Hari knows that they are usually a hodgepodge of racy scenes written with the primary aim of providing unfussy entertainment. Poojai comes as no shocker; in fact, quite the opposite. Even a math professor
While Hari’s films always do have huge families, it sort of goes overboard in this film with so many characters who do not have anything to do with the plot.All of Soori’s sequences are hilarious & delighted the audience, but the placement of his sequences with Imman & Pandi in the second half
After Singam-2, Hari is back with a commercial recipe with fleeting screenplay, smashing fight sequences, family sentiments, glamour as ingredients with a small pinch of comedy in Poojai. Vasu (Vishal) a multi millionaire turns into a money lender in market due to his situations.
Vishal’s Poojai can be termed as the quintessential Hari film. With racy cuts, sentimental family-drama and dramatic twists, Poojai is a fast paced action movie that’ll engage you completely. In spite of its fairly predictable plot, the film keep you hooked.If you are an avid fan of commercial cinema
All the movies of director Hari, beginning with Thamizh which featured Prasanth and Simran in the lead roles, have been action packed, coupled with family sentiments and the latest one, with Vishal in the lead, is no exception. All the formulaic features that usually form part of a Hari film Read full review at bangalore mirror
From inception till release, 'Poojai' has been a meticulously planned project that met deadlines bang on time to burst into a 3-hour bout of entertainment for Diwali, as promised. This project of Hari's after the sensational sequel, 'Singam 2' is a masala story packed with action, with Vishal aptly
Loud and fierce men, flying SUVs and shimmering billhooks are a package that comes with all the movies of Hari and he himself has always been confirming that this is indeed his style. Poojai has it all and this time Vishal, after experimenting a tad with his performances in his last

International gangster Vivek (Tota Roy Chowdhury) is being tracked down by the police. The police enlisted the help of criminal mastermind Kathiresan (Vijay) to assist with the chase. After a cat and mouse chase, Vivek is grievously injured and put in jail and swears revenge on Kathiresan. When he finally finds Kathiresan he finds he is only a shadow of what he used to be.
Amidst much controversy, allegations and political drama, Vijay’s Kaththi made it to the theatres, as scheduled, this Diwali. Much to the relief of his fans, all matters were resolved in time and within minutes tickets were sold out in several theatres across Chennai. A R Murugadoss
Kaththi opens with Kathiresan aka Kaththi being chased by prison guards and it is later revealed that he is in fact helping the cops track down an escaped convict. But Kaththi manages to give the slip to the police and comes to Chennai with the intention of flying to Bangkok with the help of his friend
Fans of Vijay can definitely rejoice, as A.R.Murgadoss’s Kaththi has brought out the actor and hero quality from the film star. If their earlier film Thuppakki was a well-fleshed out thriller that spoke about the Indian Army, Kaththi is an action-drama that sends a hard-hitting social message.
The first initial 45 minutes of the film faded with boredom and annoyed as you couldn’t find any interesting part, neither can you point any interlinking among the two people who swipe their characters for their own reasons. The plot is unclear. It makes you wait for the loo break to grab some free air of it.
In Vijay's Diwali offering, ace film-maker Murugadoss has once again taken a socially relevant theme: the exploitation of natural resources by multi-national companies and the subsequent suffering of rural folks. Like most of his films, the protagonist plays the crusader, taking on the big guns
Timed perfectly to lead the season’s box office firecrackers from the front, 'Kaththi' slashes its way through, and if it didn’t look as sharp in the first half, the second half makes up for it, well sort of. 'Kaththi' is paced rather fast, especially in the beginning; within an hour, the preliminaries
It takes one man's will to change the course of history forever. When the chips are down, even the faintest hope can make a legend out of a common man. It does not matter if you are fighting a goon or a big corporation. Kaththi is the story of one such man, who reinvents himself to unite
Had Kaththi been a film with loftier ambitions, we might say it begins in medias res – but it does begin with a bang. A prison. An escape. A freeze frame. Then, a flashback, which contains one of those procedural depictions AR Murugadoss is so fond of. (If nothing else, it must be said that
For those who love Vijay, Kaththi is a treat because it features the actor in two roles – Kathiresan and Jeevanandham. Vijay features in two roles – as social activist Jeevanandham and petty thief Kathiresan. The roles are opposite in character – Jeevanandham only thinks of society
The fans would automatically expect too much if a successful pair joins hands once again, and in the case of Vijay – A.R. Murugugadoss it has gone a step ahead. When A.R.M mentioned that Kaththi will be better than Thuppakki, many questioned it, and started to think what would
It is ‘Actor’ Vijay who is at the forefront in the first half of Kaththi. Be it the subdued performance or his eye-flicking, village-grown character, the actor in him is truly back. His emotional performances take one back to his Thullatha Manamum thullum days – we do wish he chooses
Straight of the sheath, Kaththi is sharp most of the time, but not always. AR Murgadoss has come out with a film which has a neat social message, packaged well with mass entertainment elements. Vijay carries the film in a tricky dual role, which brings out the star in him whether doing comedy
After tasting massive Diwali success in 2012, Vijay and A.R.Murugadoss are back with their second outing together, Kaththi. The film features Vijay in two contrasting but physically 'identical' dual roles, Kathiresan and Jeevanantham. While Kathir is a crook who is on the run and one with
