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.
Inspired by the popular ‘Red Riding Hood’, En Veetu Thottathil depicts the painful journey of a deaf &
mute girl, Sujitha (Jaya Ganeson) who is in the captivity of a serial killer,

Malaysian telemovie and music video scene, young film maker Karthik Shamalan
debuts into the league of feature film (actual debut film ‘Suhamaai
Subbulakshmi’ has been delayed for
release). In a closed and conservative film atmosphere like Malaysia, Karthik
has made a bold debut with a slasher flick. Did it prevail?
For any slasher film, the main
strength relies on the character depth of the protagonist. The emotional
connection with the film’s central character, Sujitha excellently portrayed by
Jaya Ganeson. The first half of the film invests its time in establishing the
unique rapport of the two lead characte…
Director: S.S.Rajamouli Casts:
Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Sathyaraj,
Ramya Krishnan, Naasar, Tamannah Music: M.M. Keeravani Language: Tamil Genre: Period Drama Plot: The film continues from the prequel
as Kattapa (Sathyaraj) narrates the past to Shivu (Prabhas) on how he ended up
killing his father Bahubali (Prabhas). The story then travels into the
complicated mystery behind the death of Bahubali and unveils the crux on
whether Devasena (Anushka) will be freed from the slavery of the evil King
Bhalla (Rana). Review: The
best thing about Bahubali is that it is not a pretentious piece of epic work
that follows the style of Hollywood period films. Rajamouli stays faithful to
the culture and spins the story based on mythological characters and fantasy elements
we might have heard during our childhood. Basically it’s uniquely Indian. The
story is more emotional as it dwells…
