I did it! I watched a Tamil movie! For the first time in ages. Tamil movie, hard Hindi film last week, my brain is getting all kinds of a work out.Continue reading
I think I may have finally figured out what I like about Gautham Menon films. It took a while, because they seem like the kind of film I shouldn’t like, perfect heroes and opaque heroines. But with this film, I think I have cracked it. Oh, and also, Ajith looks goooo-ooooood with grey hair! Which is neither here nor there, but I felt it should be acknowledged.Continue reading
This was such a cute movie! Everyone was just so nice to each other and supportive and not mean. Even all the family dynamics that in another movie would be the source of much drama and trauma were just kind of laughed off. By the movie, but also by the characters. No lingering resentments or quest for vengeance, just a sort of “well, that’s how they are and that’s fine.” kind of attitude.Continue reading
Another Tamil film! One I completely liked, unlike 96 which has me a little more back and forth.Continue reading
This is a very well-made movie. And confirms my feeling that Trisha is secretly a brilliant actress, as good as Parvathy, but less likely to be given really good roles (partly because the Tamil industry just isn’t as good for female characters as the Malayalam). And also confirms my feeling that Vijay Sethupathi was put on this earth for women who like big natural bodies and sensitive souls. Oh, and this is a very VERY long review, once I get into the SPOILERS section. Watch out!Continue reading
I put off writing this review, because I wanted to make sure I had enough time really say good things. Because this is a very good movie and it deserves a good smart review.Continue reading
I am so happy to have a new Rajiv Menon movie in my life. His work is just so beautiful, it makes me feel good about the world, you know?Continue reading
I already put up the No Spoilers review. You can read that if you want to avoid spoilers, this is the place to come if you have already seen the movie and couldn’t follow the plot, or want to talk about it, or just want to read what I thought. This is also the place to come if you read the no spoilers review and don’t think you will ever want to watch this movie but still want to know what happened. It’s not the greatest film, so that is a decent possibility and I won’t judge you if that is your decision.
