After watching one of the worst movies of the year for 2022, I had higher expectations of the latest Kamal Haasan movie, Vikram written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj who also did the excellent Kaithi which I rated the best movie of 2019. Another reason for the high expectation is that it is a Kamal Haasan movie which means perfection from the master himself. Poster source: IMDB.
Tamil Movie Review
The Vijay acted movie, Beast was so bad that I did not have the interest to write up a post until I read somewhere a Vijay diehard fan said those who said the movie was bad must be blind and another said entertainment is more important than logic. The movie was directed by Nelson who also directed poor taste subject in the Doctor and also starred Pooja Hegde, Selvaraghavan, VTV Ganesh & Yogi Babu. Poster source: IMDB
I caught Sivakarthikeyan‘s latest Tamil movie, Doctor at Netflix recently and let me tell you upfront – it is probably one of the worst movies starred and produced by him. But surprisingly the reviews of the movie have been good so one has to wonder what the reviewers were drinking when they reviewed this movie. It was also reported to be one of the highest-grossing movies for 2021. Or did I miss something? Image source: IMDB
On this date, 30 years in November 1991, the movie starring Rajinikanth and Mammootty titled “Thalapathi” was released and it became one of the biggest blockbusters for Mani Ratnam who wrote and directed the movie. It is a cult movie and one of the three classic Mani Ratnam – the other 2 being Kamalahasan starring Nayakan and Mohan starring Mouna Ragam. Image source: Cinema Express.
Before Sarvam Thaala Mayam, my impression of GV Prakash is that he is a really good music director who has composed some of the best hits in the Tamil movie industry. I had never rated him as a good actor perhaps due to the types of roles that he has done in the past.
My personal favourite is his composition for the 2010 Tamil movie, Aayirathil Oruvan titled “Maalai Neram” sung by Andrea Jeremiah. He also did a great job in music scoring for other blockbusters like Madrasapattinam, Deiva Thirumagal and Raja Rani. Image source: Wikipedia.
