Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 No Score Yet Sandakozhi 2 (2018) The failures don't derail the movie, which remains tolerable even in its less compelling portions.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet 96 (Tamil) (2018) Understated performances complement Prem Kumar's storytelling lyricism, and create magic.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Nota (2018) If NOTA works to the extent it does, it is because it unfolds like the highlights reel of the absurd political happenings that Tamil Nadu has been witnessing over the past two to three years.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (2018) If the initial set up instantly reminds you of The Godfather, you are not wrong. And it is intentional. But it is only as the plot unfolds that you realise that Mani Ratnam is giving a delicious twist to the classic gangster tale.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Mr. Chandramouli (2018) Mr. Chandramouli is largely underwhelming, mainly because of how formulaic it is.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Diya (2018) At about 100 minutes, the film feels sprightly enough. And Sai Pallavi comes up with a competent performance, both as the mother who pines for her lost child, and the wife who is frantically trying to save her husband.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Nimir (2018) Priyadarshan fails to convincingly establish the relationships between the various characters and the milieu. The largely functional performances don't help, and we never become emotionally involved with the characters.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Bhaagamathie (2018) Even if the machinations of the script, including the climactic twist(s), feel familiar, Ashok goes about these with an attitude that is gleefully over the top and this keeps the film engaging. ‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Gulaebaghavali (2018) There is a madcap vibe to Gulaebaghavali, a comic caper that is largely amusing and laugh-out-loud funny at a handful of moments when it manages to fully exploit the nuttiness of its premise.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Thaanaa Serndha Koottam (2018) The social concerns of the film, which were just undercurrents, rise to the surface, and the effect is jarring.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Balloon (2017) Balloon works mainly because it has some solid scares (most of which are jump scares or variations of it), a lot of zingy one-liners (courtesy Yogi Babu, who is hilarious here) and a bit of inventiveness.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Ulkuthu (2017) Despite the familiar arc of its storyline, Ulkuthu is fairly engaging, mainly because Caarthick Raju introduces minor variations into situations that we have seen earlier. ‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Chennai 2 Singapore (2017) The film is quite uneven; for every scene that generates a laugh or two, we get a couple that are dead weight, especially in the first half. The Chennai-set portions are frankly cringe-worthy. Even the visuals are flat.‐ The Times of India

4/5 No Score Yet Aruvi (2017) Ultimately, Aruvi is actually about how a filmmaker can present even an old-fashioned story in a brand-new way if he invests a little bit of thought.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Richie (2017) Where Richie scores is in the new-age-y treatment of its premise. Gautham Ramachandran breaks up the film into various chapters through which we learn both about Richie and the events of the past. ‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Annadurai (2017) Srinivasan choses to raise the stakes with more villains, but every one of them, including Radha Ravi in a walk-on role as a MLA, feels slight, and this is why the film comes across as mere image-building exercise.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Khakee: The Power of Police (Theeran Adhigaram Ondru) (2017) Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru grips us by the scruff of our necks and never lets go.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Aramm (2017) Yes it gets preachy often and melodramatic at times, but we cannot ignore the forcefulness with which Gopi drives home his points. This is a 'Message movie' with a capital M, but Aramm wears this tag proudly on its sleeves.‐ The Times of India

3/5 61% Desierto (2016) Given that it wants to be a political commentary, we wish the film had dug deeper, but taken simply as a thriller, Cuarón has provided us with a visually impressive film ... that keeps us engrossed.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Magalir Mattum (2017) The film manages to walk a fine middle ground between lecturing and showing us the inequality that exists in our society.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Thupparivaalan (2017) What sets Thupparivaalan apart from regular action thrillers is how it not only thrills us, but also makes us feel.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Spyder (2017) What should have been an edge-of-the-seat cat-and-mouse game between good and evil turns into a movie that cannot decide between wanting to be a crackling thriller and an anything-goes masala movie.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Hara Hara Mahadevaki (2017) For an adult comedy, the jokes are quite juvenile.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Karuppan (2017) Even though Imman's songs are a let-down, the action scenes are shot well to make us ignore the lack of forceful drama on screen.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Solo (2017) As a narrative experiment, Solo is kind of underwhelming as it works only in parts, but there is quite a lot to savour -- from the superb frames to the terrific music and the solid performances.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Mersal (2017) When you have a mass hero in full form like Vijay is in the film, how can things go wrong? ‐ The Times of India
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet The Spark (Theri) (2016) With the right material, Vijay can elevate even an ordinary scene with his amazing screen presence. And he can effortlessly play to the gallery.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Thoongaavanam (Thoonga Vanam) (2015) Even though the film doesn't come together as effectively as it should have, there are moments that keep us glued.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Savaale Samaali (2015) It isn't a bad film but director Sathyashiva never realizes the full potential that the premise promises.‐ The Times of India

1/5 No Score Yet Sakalakala Vallavan (2015) Sakalakala Vallavan is so abominable -- a blot in the career of everyone involved in making it -- that it makes us question its very existence and how it even came to be made.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Ovum (2015) The second half is more of a letdown, mainly because the director has difficulty in maintaining the tone of the film, which abruptly changes from farce to realism (read preachy).‐ The Times of India

4/5 No Score Yet Papanasam (2015) The best thing about Papanasam is how convincingly it makes us forget the original Drishyam, and manages to stand on its own.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Indru Netru Naalai (2015) We laugh at the jokes, wonder at the science and care for the characters but the narrative lacks pep in places.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Yagavarayinum Naa Kakka (2015) Talk about being so near and yet so far.‐ The Times of India

2/5 No Score Yet Romeo Juliet (2015) Here is a film that could prove to be a worthy challenger to Valiyavan for the title of the Most Preposterous Movie of the Year.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Innimey Ippadithaan (2015) Because it has a comedian as the hero, the directors, Murugan and Prem Anand (who go by the screen name Muruganand), are also able to make some bold moves, most importantly in the climax.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Purampokku (2015) Balusamy might be the film's central character, but it is Yamalingam who is its beating heart.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Arrambam (2013) This one is commercial cinema done just about right.‐ The Times of India

No Score Yet Uttama Villain (2015) While the terrific score by Ghibran complements and enhances the drama, visually, the film lacks the dazzle of the writing and the performances of Andrea and Pooja Kumar are strictly OK.‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet OK Kanmani (2015) This is the time for us to celebrate a return-to-form of one of our premier filmmakers. ‐ The Times of India

3.5/5 No Score Yet Yennai Arindhaal (2015) [Ajith is] fine form here. Playing a character that gives him the chance to be someone his age, here, he turns on the charms when he is with the heroines and taps into the coolly aggressive and self-possessed persona that we saw in Mankatha and Billa.‐ The Times of India

3/5 No Score Yet Kaththi (2014) Murugadoss gets the 'hero moments' right.‐ The Times of India

2.5/5 No Score Yet Kaaki Sattai (2015) It is hard to take a cop seriously when he has to depend on Mano Bala and his brand of humour to crack his case.‐ The Times of India
