DHONI FILM REVIEW
Director: Prakash Raj
Casts: Prakash Raj
Dhoni is the directorial debut of a fine actor, Prakash Raj and
eventually he excels giving a well thought noble film. The main
objective of the film is very clear from the start and Prakash Raj
weaves it with interesting line up of characters.
Dhoni has a good
message for the academically demanding education system. It never gets
deviated from the focus of the film which is rare to see these days.
Prakash Raj carries the film with his great acting skills.
downside of the film is the generic second half. It eventually becomes
very cliché towards the end. After you have watched the film, you might feel like Prakash Raj have been trapped in time, thanks to the melodramatic climax.
Technically the film doe not offer much too. K.V. Guhan's smooth cinematography gives a feel good factor to the film. Editor Kishore's cuts are sharp and it helps the storytelling to a certain extent. Music by illayaraja is soulful, nostalgic and apt for touching subject like this.
In overall a pleasant watch and a convivial
directorial debut by Prakash Raj.
Verdict: Dhoni is a decent and novel debut by Prakash Raj.

all the potential to become a game changer in Kollywood. However, the reception for
new age films was relatively lower during 2007-2010, a time where masala biggies were dominating. Cut to 2017, the duo strikes back with an exciting
combination and concept that has made the right noise this time from the very
first announcement. The film opens up with an animated depiction of Vikramathithiyan and
Vedalam tales that b…

SYNOPSIS: A hot headed military officer,
Kathiravan (Vishal) tries to expose the crime of data stealing and misuse of it
to make money from innocent people by a master hacker, White Devil (Arjun).
REVIEW: Cyber-crime is one of the prevalent
topics worldwide, thanks to the immense growth of technology and the ease of
data sharing it has facilitated. Even though in surface, the topic might look a
bit straight forward, the complexity of these technology is limitless. Debutant
director P.S.Mithran has researched deeply and has crafted a film that is
intelligent, relatable and engaging.
The film sets up with a strong tone
by establishing the master hacker, White Devil who is working towards his
ultimate goal of having every individual’s information and money in hand. On
the other end, we are introduced to a military officer, Kathiravan who is
