Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 45% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) The problem with Adhe Kangal is that it rarely transcends the "interesting on paper" stage. There's a great story, but the screenplay isn't tight.‐ The Hindu

67% Kabali (2016) It must be said that Rajinikanth does more for the movie than the movie does for him.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Thoongaavanam (Thoonga Vanam) (2015) Everything comes together beautifully - the kitchen-sink action choreography, the sounds of things breaking and clattering, the bursts of background score, and the jittery camerawork.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Puli (Telugu) (2015) If Chimbu Deven's brief was to create a colourful diversion for undemanding children, then Puli, starring Vijay, must be counted as some sort of success.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Orange Mittai (2015) Orange Mittai isn't as banal as that description sounds. It deals with something we've rarely (if ever) come across in our cinema -- how it's easier to be a good son to someone else's father, how it's easier to be a good father to someone else's son.‐ The Hindu

92% Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) The best sight of all is that of a filmmaker not, for a second, taking his audience for granted.‐ The Hindu

92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) To get an idea of the overall mood, you have to imagine something starring Buster Keaton, Spencer Tracy, Sylvester Stallone and Marlon Brando, and directed by Michael Bay and Sidney Lumet on a bank of giant green screens.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Indru Netru Naalai (2015) Yes, there's the inevitable amount of spoon-feeding -- but the surprise is how smoothly it all goes down. There's always something clever.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Papanasam (2015) Those of you who haven't seen Drishyam, I'd imagine, are in for a white-knuckle treat.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Romeo Juliet (2015) t might have helped if the jokes were funny.‐ The Hindu

100% Vishwaroopam (2013) The story doesn't offer anything new, but these small subversions make the leisurely paced Vishwaroopam more than just another entry in the ticking-clock genre.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Arrambam (2013) Once Ashok (Ajith) enlists the services of Arjun, who's a genius-level hacker, to commit a series of crimes, the film takes off.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Uttama Villain (2015) How I wished the entire film had been a mirror on Manoranjan, about what it is to be a star of a certain age, at a certain stage, about what it means to be Kamal Haasan.‐ The Hindu

50% I (2015) [Vikram] does his darnedest to make us care for the character, using his voice, his eyes. But beyond a point he has nothing to do, nothing to play -- he's all dressed up and he has nowhere to go.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet OK Kanmani (2015) After a point, all this classiness becomes stifling.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Kaththi (2014) The film gets better as it goes along, mostly because Murugadoss rediscovers, midway, the sound masala instincts that had apparently abandoned him earlier.‐ The Hindu

No Score Yet Kaaki Sattai (2015) As overlong, utterly generic, badly written, indifferently made action-comedy star vehicles propelled by Anirudh's growling guitar riffs go, Kaaki Sattai is as disposable as they come.‐ The Hindu
