Vellai Illa Pattathari (2014) ~ Review

       Dhanush certainly marked his own unique style in Indian Cinema yet imitating his father-in-law has become a routine for him recently. Anirudh scores again as usual! Although source for some of his composed tunes belongs to middle-eastern musicians, this guy has got something huge coming to him (No sarcasm). Thankfully, the film maker avoided awkward romances in foreign soil for a good for nothing duet., which is really a big thing to appreciate in modern kollywood movies. Amala Paul (Shalini) living next door to the hero can be seen in her house terrace 24*7 or driving her car. Good contributions from Saranya and Samuthirakani, who reprise their role as parents for the protagonist. This movie is a compilation of Dhanush's previous flicks Thiruvilayaadal aarambam, Padikathavan and Yaaradi nee mohini. Same old concept which has been used in tamil cinema since 90's is repeated here. The end credit says "The film is dedicated to engineering students and VIP's" has no stuff to inspire the so-called VIP's.

Rating: 6.0/10

#VIP - Vettiya Iruntha Paarunga (Watch it if you're free)
Just another crowd pleasing commercial entertainer.

Amazing Spider Man 2 (2014) ~ Review

    One of the best adaptations from the comics. Quality piece of work again from Hans Zimmer, really intriguing stuff. There aren't much appalling qualities as far as the script is concerned except there's no strong or reasonable story behind why the guys (villains) had to turn against Spider-man all of a sudden? Decent screenplay from Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff PinknerDirector Marc Webb made good use of leading artists. The Relationship between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy is a highlight. I still wonder why the movie didn't hit the Box Office. People are forced to believe the false pretense because of some anonymous reviews and ratings. 

Rating: 6.5/10

Amazing Spider-man never fails to amaze us in the sequel. A Special treat for superhero movie lovers and Spidey fans.
