Raatchasi Movie Review Real Jo is Back

Raatchasi is a 2019 Indian Tamil language drama film, written and directed by Sy. Gowthamraj and produced by S. R. Prakashbabu and S. R. Prabhu of Dream Warrior Pictures. This film stars Jyothika in lead role and Hareesh Peradi in the main supporting role.

Before the opening credits of Sy. Gowthaman Raj’s ‘Raatchasi’ rolls, there is a small sequence where a lorry barges into a Government school, and a few henchmen force the students to get into the vehicle. A teacher from the school voices against this and is slapped thrice before the lorry zooms off. The camera zooms to his face. One look at his reaction and you can already hear the dialogue – “Ungala yellam thatti ketka oruthan (Oruthi, in this case) varuvan!” No points for guessing who the ‘Oruthi’ is.

Jyotika plays the role of Geetha Rani, the newly-appointed headmistress of the government school in A. Puthur. One of the interesting points to note is that she is mostly addressed as Head Master. And throughout the film, she does everything that a male hero does in a template commercial movie. She fights henchmen all alone, preaches social messages and she is the sole savior of a whole school who also transforms an entire village.

But the way the director has handled the story is not very impressive. The screenplay lacks spice, because of which you don’t quite get the feeling that you’re supposed to. Few scenes bear resemblance to similarly themed dramas where the protagonist starts churning out one social message after another. The problem here is that the messages are strewn across and they are plenty in number. The preachy nature of the film glaringly reveals the shortcoming in filmmaking. Sometimes, things are so straight on your face that after Jyotika shows her anger towards injustice, you see graphics of Amman behind her. In another scene, she does something good to a student and you see the graphics of a halo above her and wings behind her to denote that she is an angel.

The staging could have been better and more often than not, you see the camera cutting to the faces of the characters when they speak dialogues, which is what happens in almost 90% of the film. There is no sense of movement or no specific high point that makes us invest in a particular moment. For Eg. there is a scene where a student, who is low on confidence is taking part in elocution competition. He starts off by asking everyone to not listen to him because he’s going to converse with nature. While we look forward to seeing what happens next, the immediate scene shows him winning the prize, which could have been presented with more impact.

Vishal’s Action movie review, Latest update…

action movie review

As the title suggests, Action is full of guns, explosion, parkour-style chases on roofs, bike chases, cars blowing up and some close combat stunt scenes as the ‘hero’ is on a ‘mission impossible’. The film is packaged as a template Tamil masala entertainer laced with romance, songs, sentiments, and patriotism. Action has been shot in some exotic foreign locales in Turkey and Azerbaijan, but lacks a proper script and takes audiences for granted with far too many logical loopholes in the plot. The film opens with an action sequence set in Istanbul, with ludicrous stunt and even more ludicrous hero glorifying lines – “Avan vandha option illa action dhaan”; “Unmaya thedi aaraayiram kilometre vandhavan unna thedi ara kilometre vara maataana?”. Your reaction to Action is decided in this very sequence. If you dig the corniness of the lines and the OTT-ness of the stunts, then you might be able to enjoy the film. If not, tough luck!

Action movie review

The plot revolves around Colonel Subhash (Vishal), the son of a chief minister (Pala Karuppaiah), who has to track down the people behind the dastardly terror attack that has led to the death of his fiancée (Aishwarya Lekshmi, in her Tamil debut) and his elder brother (Ramki). Lending him a helping hand is Diya (Tamannaah), his army colleague, who also fancies him. While this one-line plot, which makes Subhash’s mission both patriotic and personal, offers the possibility of an emotional anchor for all of the film’s action

scenes, sadly, the writing, which is simplistic and filled with corny dialogues, doesn’t bring these emotions to the fore (unlike in the case of the recent Bollywood film War, which was also a globe-trotting action-adventure involving military officers and terrorists). Instead, what we get are visuals that seem to have been edited by a restless two-year-old. In addition to the rapid cuts, the editor also makes the visuals blurry, perhaps to resemble the fogginess of memories.

But what this approach does is dilute the intensity of the emotions. As for the action scenes – the film’s very reason for existence – they are a mixed bag. On one hand, we get a thrilling chase on the streets of London – it begins as a chase on foot, turns into a car chase (we even get a tense moment involving kids crossing

the road), and then a parkour-like display in a ghetto and culminates in a cliffhanger. This segment is the film’s highlight. But the rest of the action sequences are pretty standard, with gravity-defying moves, and often lack spatial coherence. The final act is clearly a letdown. Given all the buildup, we expect a strong antagonist who might prove to be more than a match to the protagonists, but what we get is a weak villain, who gets easily outwitted in his own den – Pakistan, where else!

excited the fans. Director Vijay Chandar who last directed Vikram’s Sketch has helmed the film. Sketch which received a lukewarm response from the critics was celebrated by Chiyaan Vikram fans for the mass elements. The director himself has said recently that the mass factor of Vijay Sethupathi will increase after the release of the film. The trailer of the film released a few days back has increased the expectations of the fans. The trailer showed Vijay Sethupathi in a massy character taking on villains in style. The trailer also had Soori cracking funny one-liners. Vivek Merwin’s background music has impressed the fans a lot.

Akashaganga 2 review- that fails to impress the expecations of the audience!

Roselin Ravikrishnan

Akashaganga 2 is a sequel made by director Vinayan to 1999 hit Akashaganga. If you have seen the earlier one, a horror-comedy mixed with some folk tales, you know pretty much what to expect from the sequel. After 20 years, when the director makes the sequel, he serves it up with a mix of nostalgia, humor, and horror.
In the first series, Akashaganga ended with the news that Maya (Divya Unni) was pregnant. At the beginning of this one, we are informed that she died while giving birth to a daughter, who is Arathy Varma (Veena Nair), a medical student now.
Arathi Varma (Veena Nair) is the daughter of Unni (Riyas) and Maya (Divya Unni). The MBBS student is an atheist and doesn’t care about the stories told about her house or the evil spirits that reside there. She is the student chairperson of the medical college and an atheist. Along with a friend who believes in black magic, Arathy, and her gang go to an ashram run by Soumini Devi (Ramya Krishnan). There Arathy talks to her mother’s spirit. 
Back home, she goes to their family temple, which is closed now and opens some boxes there. Trouble starts from then on as the spirit of Ganga (the late Mayuri, who has been recreated here) starts following her. 
 The director who has also scripted the film has successfully woven a horror comedy with Dharmajan, Vishnu, Thesni Khan, Hareesh Kanaran, Praveena, Riyas, and Sreenath Bhasi. The set design by Boban gives the right ambiance for the scary sequences, and Prakashkutty’s cinematography, Bijibal’s music, and the director’s efforts have created a watchable sequel.
The popular song Puthumazhayayi vannu nee… has been used to the right effect. 
However, one cannot call it as a complete horror-thriller as the scary elements don’t convey enough horror.
Akashaganga 2 is an extension of the earlier episode, with some scares and comedy. Go with limited expectations and then, this one could be a fine one time watch.
