Beaten-to-death Bairavaa, Bogus Bogan, Sonorous Singam 3, Cocky Kavan – The less said about the big films of 2017’s first quarter, the better. There have been quarters when our team has had a tough time in deciding which film to leave while making the Quarter’s ‘Top Picks’. This one too was difficult but for the exact opposite reason! Of the 43 releases in the quarter, 4 off 5 films that made it to our list are small films from inexperienced film makers that endeared us with their charm and intent. So biggies in pipeline, beware. We see a shift in pattern coming along. Heading to our Five (yes, we were forced to cut down from ‘Six’ to ‘Five’) picks now:
