Saaho Movie Review: Lavish filmmaking can’t rescue convoluted writing

“Like its protagonist, Saaho, whose fingers twitch in anticipation of a fight, this film is overzealous about showing off its budget, and what better way than through action sequences—by a Hollywood stunt choreographer—never mind their purpose.”

Jackpot Movie Review: Jyotika and Revathy seem to have fun, we don’t

“Kaada muttai (quail egg). Muththuna aamai (overripe tortoise). Asingamaana moonji (revolting face). Echchathattu moonji (a face like a used plate). Kaatu muni (wild hermit). Kaateri (lamia). Kaatu erumai (wild buffalo). Pardon my rather offensive beginning to this review, but I’m simply recounting the many descriptions of Yogi Babu’s appearance in Jackpot.”

“Ever wondered why we watch films, why we give away so willingly our hard-earned money in return for two fleeting hours of enjoyment?

Inside the Bigg Boss household, there is no dearth for interesting stories and fascinating character arcs. “
