Jai Ganesh Review: Promising Premise Fails Due to Rushed Script

The new movie “Jai Ganesh” by director Ranjith Sankar, starring Unni Mukundan, seems like a jumbled mix of too many ideas. Ranjith Sankar used to make movies about vigilante justice, but “Jai Ganesh” lacks the same clear purpose. The film feels unfinished, like a rough draft that needed more work. The main character is Ganesh, …

Thankamani Review: Outdated and Unbearably Melodramatic

After listening to the dialogues in Ratheesh Raghunandan’s second film “Thankamani,” I couldn’t help but wonder if the last hit film he watched was released over a decade ago. To call “Thankamani” outdated would be a disservice to the quality films of that era. Sadly, this melodramatic revenge drama, with its central incident of little …

Thundu Movie Review: Police Drama Falters with Detrimental Messaging

Thundu presents itself as a homage to the acclaimed “Action Hero Biju” style, delving into the daily lives of policemen while interweaving comedic episodes.

Bramayugam Movie review

Bramayugam Review: Prepare to be Scared Witless and Powerful Politics
