What's it about?
As rumored the film is a remake of the yesteryear classical "Indru Poi Nalai Va" directed by Bhagyaraj, three youths(Powerstar!) trying to woo a girl next door. They do all sorts of gimmicks to get into the house of the heroine. Santhanam will learn music from VTV Ganesh, Powerstar will learn dance from Vishaka's dad and Sethu will be a personal assistant(Malligai saman vangara paiyan) for Kovai Sarala. Then the united friends will get into quarrel on who will love the girl and finally who will impress her is the story. Santhanam has made sure that he will have a package of comedians who can bring down the house. He has done that perfectly in this film.
Powerstar Srinivasan as a comedian is a big plus, Santhanam as usual had his pet VTV Ganesh and his iconic witty one liners are available all over the film. Both Powerstar and Santhanam had done a wonderful job. Almost Powerstar has done his real life character in this movie, so it's easy for him I hope (all those over buildups). Sethu debutante has done a decent role. Vishaka looks bubbly, okayish role and she has done her part. VTV Ganesh, Kovai Sarala and Vishaka's dad all did their part in their way.
Since the film is a remake there is nothing new in this movie, same old story and same old characters. Little changes in the last. The film could have been trimmed a bit more, the songs make the movie lengthier. Nobody could manage to engage the audience during the songs and songs were not a hit among people which will make it a tiring watch.
Overall a decent family watchable movie for the festive season, with lots of fun. This will be a big break for Powerstar. As usual Santhanam rocked with his dialogues which will keep you engaged throughout the movie. If you are expecting a story, then this not your movie. If you want to be happy for three hours, then this will be your perfect choice. For Santhanam and Powerstar fans, this film is a delight for you!
Rating : 3/5

South India's top commercial director SS Rajamouli's most ambitious project Eega is out at a record 1200 theatres across the world. Nani plays the main lead (Technically it's the rebirth of Nani as the housefly which is the lead character), Samantha plays the female lead and Sudeep plays the most important role as a Villain. Keeravani has done the music and Senthil is the cameraman.
What's the story?
Nani playing the eternal lover boy and Samantha will secretly adores Naani like what happens in most south movies these days. Sudeep gets mad when he gets to know that Samantha, the girl he admires, is in love with Naani. He goes on to kill Nani. Then unfolds the real battle -- the rebirth of Naani as a housefly and how he takes revenge on Sudeep. The names of Sudeep and Naani were retained in the movie, while it's Bindhu for Sam.
The bonding between Naani and Sam was great. Sudeep has given a once-in-a-lifetime performance. If one-half of the film is for kids, then the other half is for adults -- its Rajamouli’s master blend that has packed all the elements so well. The background music will just woo you. The CG work by Makuta team was extraordinary, specially the scene where Sudeep blackmails Naani by Sam was shot brilliantly. Cameraman Senthil deserves a special mention here. Overall, the film keeps you engrossed for most of the time.
The film is a bit lengthy, sometimes you might feel that it is for the kids.
It’s Sudeep, Sudeep and Sudeep all the way. A must watch revenge story - it will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

Now its officially confirmed that Billa 2 is censored with 'A' certificate.
Chakri Toleti, director of Billa2 has tweeted thatIts actually a great move, yesterday Billa2 was on a negative side with film backing out of the BO clash with Saguni in the last minute. It was predicted that maybe Billa2 had a weak story line which pushed them to avert the clash, but to slog it out they have got 'A' certificate. Which shows that they are not ready to make any compromises in the film, if this policy being maintained all through the film then the film will be a Blockbuster for sure. On the darker side, last time Ajith's movie released with 'A' certificate was 'Alwar'. It clashed with Pokkiri(U/A). Pokkiri went on to become a rage hit while Alwar was dud. In the past a big 'A' certified movie was 'Aayirathil Oruvan', 'Pudhupettai' all were box office duds. They cant attract family audience, this time Ajith is more powerful when compared to Alwar and now his main and sole fan base is youth's between 18 to 25. So Billa2 might become the trend setter by avoiding 30% tax exemption and backing up the story of teh movie. Lets see what happens. Release date is almost confirmed for June 21 or 22. So its a going to be an epic clash between Billa2 & Saguni. Lets wait and enjoy the game as it get unfolds. Lets see who rake in big moolah...!!!! whats your guess, flow in your comments below.
#Billa2 "A" with no major cuts...! :)"

Krishnaveni Panchaalai a story about a cotton factory as the name suggests. Dhanapal Padmanabahn debuts as director, N.R. Raghunathan scores the music. Hemachandran(as Kathir) and Nandhana(as Poongothai) play the lead. Renuka plays the mother role of Poongothai. Film is produced by Minveli Media Works.
Film starts off with a flashback back in 1950’s, where Rajeev Krishna( S/O Krishnaveni Cotton Mill founder) went to UK for his higher education, where he falls in love with a girl and he marries her. His father’s self-demise will compel him to return to India, to take over the mill. Then the film travels to 1980’s, where the mill will be running good, employees will be happy. There are a lot of love pairs in between, Kathir and Poongothai are one such pair. Furthermore, Kathir will help in arranging a run-away marriage for Poongothai's elder sister and his friend. Renuka takes revenge for this marriage and will mix poison for her own elder daughter. On the other hand, a tussle happens between mill employees and owner regarding bonus, which extends to a strike for 300 days. How Poongothai gets to know the truth of her sister's killing, how she joins with Kathir and what happened to Krishnaveni Cotton Mill is the rest of the story.
The film has an intriguing story. History and love were mixed in right proportions. Casting was perfect except for a few characters. It is evident that a lot of ground work has been made in properties inside mill, and the attendance card puncher deserves a special note. Performance by Renuka was damn good, both in the interval and in the final stages. Lead pair Hema Chandran and Nandhana gave a decent performance. Rajeev Krishnan was the perfect choice for a mill owner.
Having a decent story and pleasant actors to emote the film missed out in execution, it could also have had a better screenplay. Managers in the mill react too much and in the initial scenes it was irritating at one point. Songs are spoilers; it doesn’t have a good music and many were placed at the wrong time.
Final word: It’s a good attempt. If you are free, you can give it a try, nothing big.

The much awaited trailer of Vishwaroopam has been unveiled today. Kamal Hassan playing the lead has also written and directed the movie, Pooja Kumar and Andriah play the female leads. Watch the trailer below.
Vishwaroopam - Exclusive stills. - Click the link to get all official posters and first look images of Vishwaroopam(without watermarks).
Viswaroopam trailer is a stunning mind blowing ride, Kamal have lost his belly and looks young as ever. In the beginning gun shots were matched with Kamal's vocals, denoting that Kamal has some evil inside him. This fact will be proved when Andreah says "Indha padathula ellarukkume double role" means everyone in this film has a double role(Positive & Negative). Positive and Negative is cleared when Pojja Kumar asks "Neenga nallavara Kettavara(Are you a good man or a bad man)" for which Kamal answers "To answer your question, am both I am the Hero & am the villain. So with this trailer it is very sure that Kamal has a double role one being a Kathak dancer and other as an camouflaged terrorist. Background music was good.
Here is what Kamal has to say about his Magnum Opus "Vishwaroopam".
Nirupama gets her Phd and Wiz runs his dance class in New Jersey unhindered by each other. All is fine till Dr. Nirupama aspires for more and wants to opt out of the arranged marriage.
She cannot cite any specific reason to leave Wiz as there is nothing much to complain about him. Every male according to Nirupama must have a flaw. So she decides to find out something about him to feel better about her decision to part . She hires a detective to rake up something on him.
Vishwaroopam is something that has been in my mind for nearly seven years. I hope it stays in my audience`s mind for at least half that time, By Kamal Haasan.

|A picture depicting three get ups of Balakrishna from the film. (Image credits: Mustimusiq)|
What's it about?
Harish Chandra is the leader of the Rayalaseema clan. He dies suddenly but the reason behind his death remains unknown. There's also a character called Bobby, a killing machine, who learns about his family's background and decides to return to his village. On his way home he finds Lakshmi Rai and falls in love with her. The film then follows Harish Chandra stories and reveals why Bobby was separated from his family.
The much-hyped character of Harish Chandra is fairly fleshed out. Jayasudha has also done a fair job. Brahmanandham was a relief, but his role could have been crisper.
The film doesn't have a good story; neither does it have a proper screenplay. The film tries to attract all of Balayya's fans, continues on the romance-comedy track and finally ends up feeling like a family drama – a total hodgepodge. Both the director and the writer seem to be confused about how to take the story forward. They didn't know where to start and where to end. Bobby's costumes were also bad.
What to do?
Give it a miss and wait for Balayya's next film.
My Rating: 2/5

A love story between Dhanam, a school girl and Jeyam, a happy-go-lucky guy, who accompanies his brother in family construction business. If Jeyam’s family has a political background, on the flip side, Dhanam’s family had powerful government employees like Port trust chairman and Public prosecutor her dad and uncle respectively. They both fall in love, and they plan for an outing to Thiruchendur and guess what? They get caught by the police. Things get bitter after that, two families try to stop the outrage, but it grows bigger, and they go for third man settlement, where politics and ego plays the spoilsport. How Jeyam and Dhanam manage to solve the problems and what happens to them is the rest of the story.
Casting was perfect, the biggest plus is neither the boy had manly looks, nor the girl had angelic attraction. They look like one of us, which helps us to resonate with the film easily. Though there are many new faces, the director had made sure that everyone has given a decent performance to name a few, Jeyam’s friends, Director K.S. Thangasamy himself as brother and Dhanam’s uncle. Picturisation of songs is good, "Asathum alagu" is the pick of the album. The unexpected twists and turns make the film an interesting fare and set it apart from the clichéd films.
Story has nothing new. It is the same love story. Even good picturisation couldn’t enhance few songs; they come as speed breakers, except for “Asathum alagu." Few amateurish acting in the first half, but since it's, a debut movie for many it is negligible.
Final word: A good one-time watch with a riveting climax, you can give it a try.
