(I know there was trouble when I saw a “Borg cube” at the opening credit of the movie. Poster source: SYFY)

Before I start with the review, let me tell you upfront that we have been duped, major time, by Shankar and the studio marketers with the whole hype before the movie was released.…

I used to hate Tamil movies, especially after the 1990s…

Hindi Movie Review: Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year 2009

Rocket Singh Hindi Movie

(Downright honest salesman – you can see it in his face but the reality of things is that it is a dog eating dog world out there. Can Harpreet and his no-nonsense company make the cut? Image source: IMDB)

Indiaglitz reports it as “uplifting and brilliantly performed”!

Along with the excellent 3 Idiots, this movie is another MUST have in your Hindi movie collections.…

World War 2 Movies: The Most Memorable Movies I Ever Seen

(The last major war around the world at the same time was the World War 2 that happened between 1939 to 1945. For most of us who were not born then, we can understand the ultimate sacrifices that many gave from some of best movies ever made on this subject. Image source: http://www.buchanan.org)

(The movie poster looks impressive and the trailer somehow entices us to go to the cinema and get the whole “picture” but that is about it. Poster source: Wikipedia)

This has to be one of the most anticipated Tamil movies for the year 2010 but there is a big problem.

Tamil Movie Review: Realistic, Downright Engaging Angadi Theru 2010

Angadi Theru movie

(A very realistic movie on the lifeline of a saree shop, the salespersons and story of lovers who started off as enemies all in one neat package. Image source: The Hindu)

I wonder why really good Tamil movies always seem to have tragic endings.

Just take Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu for example – brilliantly made movie but the ending was tragic, despite the underdogs winning the final match, the main character ends up dead and the beautiful heroine is left looking for her love for the rest of the life.…

Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa tamil movie

(The music cover of the movie – excellent compositions by AR Rahman. Image source: http://en.wikipedia.org/)

Based on what I been hearing from family and friends, this movie directed by Gautham Menon (who also directed the excellent Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu) seems to be THE Tamil movie of the year.
