In spite of some minor issues, Magalir Mattum is a heartwarming sophomore effort from Bramma and Team! The film touches upon a much-needed serious topic, but still manages to engage and entertain throughout with some terrific performances and a lovely story arc.
Pandigai is a fantastic debut by Feroz where his smart writing keeps us engrossed. His casting choices and the way he has woven lovely character arcs around this heist thriller is mighty impressive. The cast and the crew deliver expertly to make this a wonderful viewing experience.
Thupparivalan gains the advantage as a technically impressive Mysskin mystery film aided by competent acting from supporting characters, only to be squandered by a laundry list of glaring issues in the characterizations and screenplay that muddles the viewing experience to mediocrity.
Intelligent characterizations and a smart narrative elevate this presentation that involves performances of the highest quality as well. Despite minor pitfalls due to a little too much of inexplicable coincidences, Kurangu Bommai is a viewer’s delight for its sheer ability to keep the audience emotionally involved and engrossed in suspense till the very end!
Taramani is certainly a brave film that brings unconventional characters and relationships to the fore. But Ram does go overboard at times with his smart-aleck-ness and repetitive enforcing of the sexual angle that it brings down the impact of the film by a few notches.
