Pelli Chooplu is one of the refreshing romantic comedies to come out in recent times and it shines due to the way template scenes have been staged wonderfully and handles complex emotions without too much melodrama.
Ozhivudivasathe Kali is the honest work from a creator who is willing to bend the rules of filmmaking to cater to his theme. Watch it for some fantastic performances, exquisite cinematography & masterful direction.
Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu is an emotional thriller that is saved by the veterans, Anant Nag & Achyutha Kumar with Sruthi Hariharan also chipping in ably. Had the acting & editing been tauter, it would have engaged a lot more.
Films like Sairat that are thematically and cinematically rich are rare. The hype associated with the film fueled by both the critics & audience is certainly justified. It is extremely refreshing to see the Indian audience embrace such a film full of fresh-faces whole-heartedly. Do not miss this in THEATRES!
Regional (read Non-Bollywood) Films that appeal evenly across the nation and even across the globe are extremely rare. In that vein, Thithi is certainly a precious gem as it conveys philosophy in a comical fashion using real people in the most un-cinematic of ways!
