Readers Write In #539: ‘Thunivu’ movie review: Screenwriting problems, star power solutions

January 12, 2023

11

By S Srivatsan, freelance critic Isn’t Ajith Kumar the obvious choice to play Panjurli, the character Rishabh Shetty played in Kantara, if ever Boney Kapoor decides to remake and produce it in Tamil? I was thinking about the roar of Kantara. There is one thing Ajith is really good at: roaring, which he thinks rhymes with good […]

H Vinoth’s ‘Thunivu’ has a good premise for a heist movie but the writing does not match up

January 11, 2023

40

Spoilers ahead… The film is tonally uniform, which helps to maintain the mood. But by the end, it is further proof that these big-star movies are a kind of IIT entrance exam for directors. In his recent interview with Galatta Plus, H Vinoth said that he doesn’t care as much about the “story” of his […]

Vamshi Paidipally’s ‘Varisu’ is old wine in an older bottle, relying solely on Vijay’s “mass moments”

January 11, 2023

121

Spoilers ahead… In the old days, these drastic shifts in mood and tone would be called bad screenwriting. Today, because of the way we consume unrelated content at a stretch on our phones, that complaint appears to have become invalid. If you look at the cast list in the Wikipedia page for Vamshi Paidipally’s Varisu, […]

By Krishnaraj Sambath As a Watcher FDFS (my first ever!) on 30-Sep-2022, 6PM show in Houston, TX. There were 5 of us in total in the theatre, including my wife and 4-yr old son. (Not the ear-deafening paper-showering cinematic FDFS experience I was hoping for) As a Reader Why did I pick up this book? […]

December 30, 2022

By Madhumithaa S Respectably enough, Pradeep Ranganathan’s Love Today begins with a disclaimer that no animals or birds were harmed in the making of the movie. Errrrrr…did he forget something? What about harming humans with this movie? I am so furious that I’m not sure about where to start, and how to go about. But, […]

The emotional stakes are low, but as a scare-dispensing machine, Ashwin Saravanan’s ‘Connect’ does a pretty decent job

December 22, 2022

2

Spoilers ahead… But the scares apart, there is no emotional depth. And the film does not show anything we have not seen in earlier stories about exorcism. There are times Ashwin Saravanan’s Connect appears to be a COVID-era homage to The Exorcist. Here, too, we have a single mother, played by a gritty Nayanthara, alternating […]
