bilingual movie which released in kannada and Malayalam. Other than a realistic
story the main positive fact of this movie is the togetherness of Malayalam
Super star Mohanlal and Kannada power star Puneeth Rajkumar.
"Mythri" is a
social drama written and directed by "Jatta" Giriraj. The movie has
an interesting story that is based on the real-life incidents that Giriraj came
across. The movie revolves around the story of a yongster, who recalls his lost
childhood and the characters that he comes across in his life.
Puneeth Rajkumar has
played the protagonist in "Mythri." Viewers say it is not a regular
Puneeth film and it hardly has any of his punch dialogues, dance and fight
sequences. The film features a different Puneeth. Mohanlal, "Aa Dinagalu"
fame Archana, Bhavana, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kale have played important roles
in the movie, which has Ilaiyaraaja's music and Krishna Kumar's camera work.
It is for the first time Puneeth Rajkumar is seen as an actor in a
movie. The actor play his own character, Powerstar Puneeth Rajkumar, hosting
the show Karunada Kotiyadipathi. Mohanlal is at his best in his
character, he plays a DRDO engineer/scientist in the movie. Mohanlal and Veda
Sastry's pairing up as a couple is feast for the viewers. Atul Kulkarni is
playing a Police Officer, whose acting melts heart of the audience. The
characters Johnson who play Siddu's friend at prison needs an appreciation.
Ravi Kale is good at portraying a corrupted politician in Mythri. Bhavana and Sadhu
Kokila has a small onscreen space, which can be said as a cameo role.
‘music Guru Ilaiyaraaja has
composed pleasant and chartbursting music album which has served as an
essential component for the script of Mythri. 'Chandranenu Chanda' song in
Kailash Kher's voice very heart-touching.
Mythri is a full package. It has good cinematography and very well
written screenplay. The movie gets a ‘thumbs up' for its technical aspects.
A stellar star cast,
comprising Mohanlal, Puneeth and Atul share screen space for the first time.
Add to that music by maestro Ilaiyaraaja, and you have a heady combination. The
treatment of the film and the story itself is very realistic. A must watch
movie with the whole family.

Download Anegan MovieAfter a long time a very satisfied romantic movie, Anegan. Tamil version of the movie released on 13 feb. Hindi and Telugu versions will reach theater on next week. The film tells the story of two lovers, who, despite numerous lifetimes, are destined to separate.
In every birth they are killed by their enemies and the saga continues to the present day, where we are introduced to Madhumitha (Amyra Dastur) at a psychiatric clinic.
STORYLINE Madhu is part of the video gaming industry and is constantly under stress due to tight deadlines. She is forced to undergo regression therapy. During these sessions with her psychiatrist she narrates her past life. The first time she lays eyes on Aswhin (Dhanush), she is totally stunned. She recognises him as the lover in all her previous lives.
But Ashwin is unconvinced. He has no recollection of Madhu or their earlier life.
However, he notices some strange things happening around them. Plagued by delusions, their friend and colleague Meera (Aishwarya Devan) throws herself out of the window of their high-rise office building. Their boss, Ravikiran (Karthik) appears extremely sympathetic, but Ashwin senses something sinister.
Their past continues to haunt the present, but this time the lovers are determined to survive.
The fantastical element in the film has allowed the director to experiment with some highly exaggerated stunts.
Full marks to cinematographer Om Prakash for capturing the authenticity of every era and for skillfully maintaining the fantastical quality of the film throughout.
The underlying currents of paranoia and surrealism permeate every scene.
This is also perhaps due to the admirable performance of actress Amyra (of Issaq fame), who makes her debut in Tamil cinema.
She is quite convincing as an irritating half crazy woman who is constantly trying to get her lover to remember their past.
The much-hyped different avatars of Dhanush -- which seems to mostly rely on absurd wigs -- do not make much of an impression.
But performance wise, he comes through for his director.
He has the entire theatre enthusiastically dancing to the rustic beats of Danga Maari Oodhari, which is already a huge rage among the youngsters.
Veteran actor Karthik keeps one entertained with his quirky style.
The narrative technique and interesting screenplay keep things moving at a brisk pace. But on the downside, there are far too many songs and several unanswered questions.
The director has left it to the viewers to decide whether the film is actually about eternal love that transcends death, or a dopamine-induced crazy make-believe world of a stressed out IT professional. BottomLine A must watch romantic entertainer with well packed story and framed screenplay. RATING : 8.75 / 10 Box Office Collection : Day 1 - 9.1 Cr Day 2 - 11.3 Cr Total Collection - 20.4 Cr in 2 Days

married to Jomon T John and now, settled in a family life. Some private
pictures of Ann are being circulated on social networking platforms like

Picket 43, from the
director of so many good military movies. Now Major Ravi not interested to deal
with war front movies. Picket 43 is a different kind of military background
movie, which focusing the feelings of soldiers those who stands in borders to
protect our country.
In Picket 43,
Prithviraj Sukumaran in lead role as Havildar Hari.
Havildar Hari is posted
to Picket 43, one of the most dangerous outpost of Indian Border, his hardships
to sustain and the bond he shares with his Pakistani counterpart unfolds the
performance make the movie live. One man stellar show was this one from him in
which he was so convincing and natural. Mostly at the climax scenes where he
scores bigtime with his fine dialogue delivery.
Renji Panikkar with his strong English uttering skills made a mark while Javed
Jaffrey made his entry to the Mollywood through a lovely role. Rest of the cast
including Anu Mohan, Shobha Mohan, Sudheer Karamana and Hareesh Peradi done
their short roles okay.
Major Ravi still is the
best man to churn out the Military movies that matters in the industry. After a
long Major Ravi is back by Picket 43 to the league which he once promised through
his first 3 films. This is another good watch from this director who provides
an emotionally heavy film which touches the hardships of an army man,
patriotism, an unusual friendship and the untold unity between the countries.
department done a plain job considering the genre of the film. Two soft
melodies featured in the stretch of the film which synced with the mood. BGM
was not so remarkable, could have done a better job.
Ranjan Abraham's cuts
were lacking the sharpness anticipated, it was a relief to see there were not
many unwanted scenes or sequences in the movie.
Jomon T John's camera was one of the major highlights of the movie through
which he captured all the beauty as well as the darkness of the border.
Genuine efforts deserve
an applause and the end credits roll, let's give a
salute to these brave hearts who protect us
Mariyam Mukku is the
first directorial venture of popular screenplay writer James Albert and the
film had a great star cast of hFahad Faasil, Joy Mathew, Aju Varghese, Manoj K
Jayan and new face Sana Althaf as heroine. The film don’t have much promotion
and hype before its release and the only hope on the film was James Albert who
wrote great scripts such as Classmates and Ividam swargamanu. But the film
ended up as a below average affair and it is not a good beginning to James
Albert as a director.
Mariyam Mukku is the
love story of Felix (Fahadh), a fisherman and Salomi (Sana Althaf). Felix who
lost his parents at a very young age is brought up by Mariyan Aasaan (Manoj K
Jayan). Felix meets his childhood friend Salomi but at a particular point he has
to choose between his Aasaan and the people of Mariyam Mukku as they stand in
his way to own Salomi. The events that unfold thereafter form the basic crux of
Its a confused script
as the scenarist is caught midway through as to whether to proceed as a full
length romantic film or add more drama to it. The latter option was chosen and
thus that romantic track that was developing well looses its presence.
Direction from James
Albert is not that bad and his screenplay had in it to deliver something good
but it ended up as an average film that is visually good with all those beaches
and sea backdrop beautifully captured by the cinematographer who deserves
credit for that. Renjan Abraham has done a decent work on the editing table
while songs by Vidyasagar is not upto the standards set by the music director.
Still it was refreshing to hear veteran singer Yesudas singing a song here.
Fahadh did a decent job
as Felix. It was a neat effort from the Asin look alike Sana Althaf as Salomi
who is also making her tinsel town debut. Manoj K Jayan as Mariyan Aasaan was
able to make a good presence along with Joy Mathew, Irshad, Nandu, Sadiq and
Neeraj Madhav. Prathap Pothan is also part of the film in a very brief role.
Aju Varghese also appear in a pivotal role but somehow he was not able to make
a big contribution. A lengthy list of other actors are also part of the
Overall, the film could
have been a better one had the love story between Felix and Salomi been better
handled and given more prominence than the events that unfolded later. Not a
bad film but did not provide the required level of entertainment either.
Impressed with his direction somewhat but not with the scripting completely and

Lingaa got released today with overflowing viewers around the releasing centers
allover. As per the report from the releasing centers, today Lingaa make a new
box office record. Expecting a whooping box-office collection from the style
Lingaa released in 3
Languages which includes telugu and hindi. All the 3 languages tamil, telugu
& hindi versions are released on the occasion of Super star Birthday, today.
Many of the Thalaivar fans started to call it as Lingaa day Decemeber 12, 2014.
Lingaa Starring Super
Star RajiniKanth, Anushka Shetty and Sonakshi Sinha. It was directed by
K.S.Ravi kumar. Rajini is touted to play dual role in this film. A. R. Rahman
Composed tunes for this film While Cinematography was handled by R. Rathnavelu.
After the several
issues faced by Lingaa now its cleared everything by deposit 10cr by the
producer in Court for the settlement of story theft issue..
Lingaa is all about
building a dam in a village region. Rajini plays dual role in the film, as an
engineer Raja who wants to build a dam in a region to solve peoples problems
and as Raja’s grandson Linga.
Anushka who belongs to
the village finds Lingaa. She bring him to the village and Linga plans to rob a
temple in that village. In that time he knows about the problems faced by the
peoples over there and then decides to finish his duty, how he does that is the
rest of the plot.
As like all Rajini
movie, a complete one man show. Rajini was at his best, his energy levels and
dialogue delivery will be a treat for his fans, his getup looked odd on screen
for few scenes, but leaving the film’s fate aside Super star’s performance
especially in Raja’s role is superficial and Lingaa’s role boost up the power
pack style performance. Anushka was nice looking but somewhere styling was
mismatch for her, Sonakshi sinha, a newbie in south films, was misfit in the
role. And she seems not comfortable with the local language.
was pale, Santhanam entertained at places, there were many artists on
screen including Jagapathi Babu, none of them created impact on the film.
The movie is directed
by KS Ravikumar. Music by AR Rehman was nice, Mona Mona song were very much
impressive, BGM is also upto mark, a lot was expected from him especially after
Shivaji and Robo.
Cinematography by Ratnavelu
is good. Editing Samjith not up-to the mark.
The impressive story
scripted by KS Ravikumar in collaboration with the film's dialogue writer Pon
Eros International had bought the film from
Rockline Venkatesh for Rs.200 crore (US$32 million),
which includes theatrical and overseas rights for all languages. The satellite
rights of the film were purchased by Jaya TV for Rs.32 crore (US$5.2 million)
movie also releasing in United Kingdom, Canada, Australia on 12 December 2014.
Releasing over 5,000 screens all over the world.
Except Rajini style,
Linga has nothing to offer new. Routine story and the same action packs. Well it’s
a power-pack entertainer, but fails to full fill the high expectation for a birthday
