RRR movie review: SS Rajamouli’ magnum opus RRR has finally arrived at the theaters on Friday. Bankrolled by DVV Danayya, it has Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the lead roles. Let’s see the story of RRR.
Story: A young tribal girl named Malli from the Adilabad area of India in the 1920s, kidnapped by British men. Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR) tries to bring her back but on the otherside, Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan), a policeman who works for the British Government decides to catch Komaram Bheem. Later, Rama Raju and Bheem become friends and fight together against British for saving the tribes. How their friendship gets constructed and what happens next, form rest of the story of RRR.
Performance: Ram Charan and Jr NTR are brilliant as he portrays vulnerability and toughness with amazing ease. Once again, both the actors steal the hearts of their fans and the viewers with their performance. Jr NTR’ body languages, the way of showing expression, mannerism in action sequences in the role of Bheem are highlighted. Ram Charan looks ruthless and tough as a policeman in the first half. Both the actors- Jr NTR and Ram Charan give electrifying performances in their respective roles of Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju. Alia Bhatt looks very beautiful as well as ferocious. Ajay Devgan and Alia Bhatt are perfectly cast. Ajay Devgn’ performance is a special package to the viewers. He in the role of Rama Raju’s father is superb. Olivia Morris, Shriya , Samuthirakani and others perform accordingly.
Technical: Vijayendra Prasad, the father of Rajamouli, has written a brilliant storyline for RRR. The friendship between the characters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju is elegant to watch on the screen. The visuals and the cinematography are outstanding. The cinematographer Senthil kumar and the art director Sabu Cyril have done an excellent job in capturing and providing electrifying moments. Creating the Delhi of 1920s and presenting it elegantly is incredible. The Interval bang and climax action scenes are the plus points of RRR that expose the international standards of Rajamouli’s making with dynamic action episodes. Rajamouli manages to get the emotions right. All the songs are good. Janani song stuck in the hearts of the audience. The friendship song Dosti and the dance number Naatu Naatu are also good. MM Keeravani’ BGM is appealing and elevating scenes.
Analysis: Stunning visuals, background music, Cinematography work, performance of Ram Charan, Jr NTR, powerful climax and the interval bang are the major assets of the movie. The first half of RRR is fantastic, the second half is bit routine with a good climax. RRR movie is Rajamouli mark money spinner at the Box-office.
Verdict: RRR has everything to become a blockbuster at the box office and is a film that should be watched only on the big screen.
This is easily Bhansali at his best as he has been able to marry craft with content; here, he attempts a Pakeezah for the millennials and almost succeeds
Gangubai Kathiawadi opens to the world with the visual of a little girl with a mass of cotton stuffed into her mouth and a pin being forced through her nose, one wonders how will this film speak. But, after a few fumbles, it does and goes on to charm with its eloquence. Without being pedantic, it takes a clear stand on how sex workers deserve an equal life, on a par with other professionals in society.
Set in a part of Kamathipura that is often called Mumbai’s red-light area, it is about a part-real, part-fictional character called Ganga (Alia Bhatt) who hails from an illustrious background, but is sold into the flesh trade by someone she believed. Unlike Raj Kapoor’s Ganga, she gets really sullied, questions the hypocrisy of society, and eventually rises from the ashes to make a home out of a brothel, and fights for the rights of its inmates.
Writer-director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, thankfully, doesn’t paint a breathless hagiography of a woman who rises up the social ladder by hook or crook. Instead, he focusses on Ganga’s interactions with the people that came into her life, the bruises and heartaches that she suffered, and what she becomes by the end.
There is a mafia don inspired by Karim Lala (Ajay Devgn) who becomes a brotherly figure to the sex worker. Then there is a tailor (Shantanu Maheshwari) who dresses her desire for a life outside the brothel, and of course, there is a rival in Razia (Vijay Raaz) who threatens to spoil her ambitions. Not to forget her bonds with the inmates of the brothel. It is these bittersweet sections that make us invest in the narrative and keep us engaged.
Playing on the margins of his safe terrain, Bhansali, who triples as composer and editor, restrains himself from selling torture, from rushing into those dark rooms where hopes are mutilated. So much so that in the build-up to the centre of flesh trade, he cuts scenes just before they threaten to enter the exploitative zone.
Instead, he chooses to linger around the bed of black roses, as Gangu describes her ilk, and translates that smell to us. It is strong, pungent, redolent in turns, and ultimately leaves you with something ethereal. Take the scene where the inmates dress up the dead body of a sex worker who has died after giving birth to a child. It is as raw as it could get, but in Bhansali’s hands, even death looks elegant and evokes multiple emotions.
This is easily Bhansali at his best as he has been able to marry craft with content. For a long time, he is trying to create a modern-day Mughal-e-Azam, here he attempts a Pakeezah for the millennials and almost succeeds. Devoted to the visual grammar of cinema, here Bhansali carefully peels off the element of lust through lilting melodies that are enough to convey the convoluted layers of the human heart beneath the linear tale. In fact, two songs, Meri Jaan and Jab Saiyaan, form the crux of the narrative. You can watch them on loop and are worth the price of the ticket.
In Alia, he has a muse who could depict multiple emotions in one frame, through words, silences, and expressions. Be it the body language or dialogues, she minimises the element of acting in her performance. Watch her perform in Meri Jaan as she crystallises the complex that Ganga holds inside her in one song, she makes you cry, laugh, and feel guilty simultaneously. The way Alia gradually transforms from Ganga to Gangubai, laughs in pain, and gently hectors a child at the sight of impending conflict, makes even the predictable compelling.
The dialogues by Prakash Kapadia and Utkarishini Vashisht remain conversational even when Gangu threatens to be in the lecture. The casual presence of Dev Anand is more than just symbolic.
The support cast responds strongly to Alia, particularly Vijay Raaz in a short but memorable performance. As the eunuch sex worker, he sends chills down the spine and leaves you craving for more. Shantanu brings his dance training to help the elegant romance come alive. Devgn is supposed to bring the star value and that he does that with ease.
Sudeep Chatterjee’s cinematography reminds us of the Kamal Amrohi film as the camera permeates through prurient surfaces to align with the soul of the residents. Together with Bhansali, he carves a visual treat. In the entry shot of Razia, the larger-than-life film posters in the background and playing a feature film in the middle of a street, Chatterjee rustles up dollops of nostalgia and awe but at the same time, he generates a gentle urge to make us walk in the forbidden lanes of Kamathipura.
The pragmatic could still question the dependence of the heroine of the piece on a don, the absence of a potent climax, but this one is for the romance of a petite underdog with a tenacious character, someone who bites with her golden smile.
It is a remake of the 2020 Malayalam film Ayyappanum Koshiyum by Sachy

Producer: Suryadevara Naga Vamsi

The arrest bruises the ego of Danny who plans to avenge his insult. After having promised his wife that he would return home soon, Danny is now in jailed without bail for few weeks. Will this be the beginning of a battle between Bheemla Nayak and Danny? What is the involvement of Nayak’s wife (Nithya Menon) in this? Who is Daniel’s father(samuthirakani) ? to get these answers watch the movie on the silver screen.
Performance: Once again Power star Pawan Kalyan delivers his finest performance. His body language, way of dialogue delivery as a cop and the way he interacts with Rana Daggubati is Superb. Rana Daggubati has brilliantly portrayed the inner conflicts of Daniel Shekar, who is striving to move away from the shadow of his dominating father and wants to create his own identity. Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati, both overshadow the rest of the star cast with their outstanding performances. When it comes to the supporting cast, it is Nithya Menen in the role of Pawan Kalyan’s wife and she looks good on the screen. Samyukta Menon is fine as Rana Daggubati’ wife. Samuthirakani gets limited screen presence but he is ok. The rest of the star cast of Bheemla Nayak is good in their respective roles.
Technical: The narration of Bheemla Nayak falls into a slow pace despite the tightly-packed screenplay. The supporting characters are well-written and neatly developed. The songs and action sequences are well executed and elevate the cinematic experience which the action drama offers. The situation humor is used intelligently in the narration, that deserves applause. Cinematography is the soul of Bheemla Nayak . The background score is outstanding and editing is good.
Analysis: Saagar K Chandra amazes the audiences with this out and out out mainstream commercial film which actually portrays a different picture of toxic masculinity. The movie Bheemla Nayak doesn’t really have a typical hero or villain, but it is all about the clash of two men and the extent of their respective egos.

Movie Review: Valimai
Director: H Vinoth
Producer: Boney Kapoor
Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Starring: Ajith Kumar, Kartikeya Gummakonda, Huma Qureshi, Sumithra, Chaitra Reddy, Pearle Maaney Achuth Kumar, Selva GM Sundar, and others
Release date: 24th February 2022
Valimai Movie Review: Ajith Kumar, Kartikeya Gummakonda, Huma Qureshi, and Sumithra starrer Valimai, helmed by H Vinoth has hit the theaters today on 24th February. Let’s see the story of Valimai.
Story: ACP Arjun (Ajith Kumar), is someone who does notbelieve in custodial violence or encounters. When a gang of bikers wreak havoc in the city, snatching chains and murdering the innocent people mercilessly, Arjun takes the responsibility to save the city. What is the role of Karthikeya in this? How does Arjun nab the mastermind of the bike gang network? To get these answers, one should watch the movie Valimai on the silver screen.
Performance: It is known that Ajith Kumar is a car racer and is an action junkie. Super energetic Ajith kumar’ swag and performance are highlighted. In action sequences and bike chasing scenes, he steals the show. The mass audience feels Kartikeya is perfect in the role of slick villain. Huma Qureshi has done justice with her role. Though Ajith’s screen presence is one of the big plus for this film, but a bigger positive is that Valimai doesn’t depend on that alone. Huma Qureshi and Kartikeya Gummakonda too shine well. Kartikeya’ physique and menacing looks add more weight to the antagonist character. Rest of the cast of Valimai perform accordingly.
Technical: The highlights are the breathtaking action sequences that involve a bike chase between Ajith Kumar and Kartikeya. The action sequences are of an international standard. Coming on the work of director H Vinoth, he takes his own time to establish the characters and how the crimes happen before introducing Ajith Kumar. Nirav Shah’s cinematography is eye pleasing. The songs slow down the screenplay slightly. The BGM by Yuvan Shankar Raja keeps the narrative engaging. The editing is good and the production values are rich.
Analysis: The audiences love the madness and adrenaline rush that Valimai offers them. The movie is all about the battle between good and evil.

If ignore the lengthy runtime Mahesh Babu will entertain the audiences to the fullest. Maharshi deals with Education system in first half, and the farmers issues in second half. The second half is slow paced.

Movie Review: Kanchana 3
Director : Raghava Lawrence
Producer : Sun Pictures
Music: S Thaman
Starring: Raghava Lawrence, Vedhika, Oviya
Released Date : 19th April 2019
Raghava Lawrence starrer Kanchana 3 is the fourth installment in the Muni franchise. Apart from acting in this horror thriller drama, Raghava Lawrence has also written and directed the films to ensure that the horror-comedies strike the chord with the movie lovers. Oviya of Bigg Boss fame, Vedhika and Nikki Tamboli are playing the female leads whereas Sathyaraj, Kishore, Manobala, Nedumudi Venu, , Kabir Duhan Singh, Kovai Sarala, and others are playing the supporting roles. Let's see the storyline of Kanchana 3.
Story: Kanchana 3 about is all about the story of a man Kaali(Lawrence) and his girlfriend Lucy. When corrupt politicians try to lure him with fancy black money, he says no and they kills them Kaali and Lucy. How does Kaali take the revenge by getting into the body of Raghava (Lawrence), form rest of the story.
ÃÂ· Raghava Lawrence
ÃÂ· Oviya, Vedhika, and Nikki TamboliÃ¢ÂÂs glamour
Performance: Raghava Lawrence plays dual role as the nice guy Raghava, who is scared of ghosts, and Kaali, a tough guy who is a philanthropist and runs an orphanage. As usual once again Raghava Lawrence has proved that he has ability to carry the responsibility of the movie on his shoulder. He is pretty impressive and gives a really energetic performance. Oviya, Vedhika, and Nikki Tamboli have provided enough glamour show in their limited screen presence. Rest of the cast performed accordingly.
Technical: A haunted house, two revenge-seeking spirits, a dumb villain and dumber characters are in Kanchana 3. Raghava LawrenceÃ¢ÂÂs Kanchana 3 is an upgraded version of the rest of the parts in terms of budget, the grandeur and production value. The songs are good and Raghava Lawrence shines with his racy steps in each and every number. VetriÃ¢ÂÂs camera presents all the peppy number with his pompous visuals . Editing is adequate.
Verdict: Kanchana 3 is no exception from the previous films in the franchise and offers a decent mix of horror, action, drama and sentiments utilizing an average screenplay written by Raghava Lawrence himself. The first half has horror and comedy elements, but the second half gets rather serious and lacks a racy screenplay.
Rating : 3/5
It's the best Marvel film to date, and an achievement in every possible category.
Marvel’s Black Panther is more than just a movie — it’s a mic drop with a reverberating, triumphant thump that serves as a wake-up call for anyone still sleeping on the cinematic potential of superhero movies. It’s as good as you’ve heard, it’s better than you expect, and it accomplishes more for its genre than anyone could have reasonably predicted, even with the well-earned hype around its success.
Trying to describe Black Panther feels like performing an afrocentric Stefon sketch from Bill Hader’s SNL years: “This movie has everything. Outstanding performances from its main cast, important magnets, Michael B. Jordan’s cosmetically scarified torso, a wig toss, frank discussions of isolationist politics, and a smoochy rhino.” Black Panther is so packed with excellence that it could easily have been overwhelming, but it’s tied together with smart world-building that makes sense of every wondrous thing on screen, and it’s through that world-building that the movie transcends its parts to become a remarkable whole.
One of the more striking things about Black Panther is that, despite being the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it stands easily on its own. Where previous Marvel films leaned on the audience’s knowledge of the MCU's shared plot and mined laughs from in-jokes or references to other films, Black Panther’s characters barely regard the expanding MCU plot and focus instead on the relationships and issues facing their family, friends, and nation. This is a good thing, as Black Panther has the unenviable job of introducing watchers to a fictional country with centuries of history, as well as an entirely new (and delightful) set of heroes, most of whom have never appeared on screen before. It’s a pleasure to admit that Black Panther does this well, and the character moments between Black Panther/T’challa (Chadwick Boseman), his sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), his general Okoye (Danai Gurira), and even the villain (Michael B. Jordan, of the aforementioned torso), clearly paint the picture that these are real people with backstories and personalities whose interactions are grounded in the super-reality in which they live.
Black Panther also gives audiences its best-ever Marvel villain in Erik “Killmonger” Stevens. He’s not the biggest or the baddest villain in the Marvel canon, but he is absolutely its most complex, most interesting, and surprisingly — its most relatable. Many of the people watching Black Panther will listen to his reasoning and nod along, recognizing that this supposed bad guy has some valuable points to make even if his methods are despicable. Michael B. Jordan’s performance as Killmonger is an extension of his previous work with director Ryan Coogler, particularly in 2015’s Creed; in both films the actor and director labored to produce characters whose actions speak to a history of pain both intimate and political. This kind of complexity is quickly becoming Jordan’s specialty, and as Killmonger he flexes his skill at performing it.
Another thing Black Panther has that many movies lack regardless of their genre is a genuine sense of responsibility in dealing with the social issues that drive its plot. Its handling of the implied realities of the wealthiest country in the world being African and xenophobic takes both sides of an isolationist perspective into account, an issue that in the wrong hands could have had a disastrous message. It also, as an American production, addresses the black American experience throughout and asks the necessary questions about how much of the country’s legacy of slavery, discrimination, and continued racism has to do with Wakandan indifference. To say more would be to spoil the plot of the movie, but suffice it to say that if there is one Marvel movie that can leave you thinking about the geopolitical ramifications of a hidden, global, and most important, black superpower, it’s this one.
Black Panther is only the second mainstream superhero movie to star a black hero (the honor of the first goes to 1998's Blade), but its impact on the MCU and its genre will surely surpass the mere fact of its existence. It is the best of Marvel’s offerings so far, taking only the best of its predecessors (there’s a healthy dose of Thor: Ragnarok’s bizarre humor, The Winter Soldier’s focus on friendship and loss, and Iron Man’s top-of-the-world swagger) and remixing them into a celebration of black excellence and outstanding filmmaking. See Black Panther in theaters. See it twice if you want to! With a whole new Marvel world to explore, you’re going to want to stay in Wakanda...forever.

SKETCH | VIKRAM | TAMANNAH | Thamman SS - Movie Review
Sketch, Vijay Chandar's second after his Vaalu with STR, stars Chiyaan Vikram and Tamannaah in the lead roles. Vikram plays Sketch, a small-scale, mostly legitimate goon known more by his street name than his actual name; we only hear his father address him as Jeeva. Sketch, his three buddies (Sreeman, 'Kalloori' Vinoth and Vishwanath) and seniors like his boss (Hareesh Peradi) and uncle (Aruldoss) are his life until of course, Ammu (Tamannaah) makes an entry.

GULAEBAGHAVALI |PRABHU DEVA | HANSIKA - Movie Review
After experimenting a tad with Devi, Prabhu Deva is back with an out and out comedy driven heist movie Gulaebaghavali for this Pongal festival.
It is a comedy heist film with no logic and no story either. Gulaebaghavali takes time to settle. In the movie, it is the comedy element, which takes prominence. The likes of Mansoor Ali Khan, Anandraj, Rajendran, Ramdoss, Yogi Babu, Sathyan and Prabhu Deva himself, keep churning out the laughs and especially the fun sequences that come just before the interval are the major spikes in the proceedings. Some humour scenes seem repetitive while some seem extended.
