Kodi movie review

Kodi Movie review

By- Ridin bal

"It would have been better with proper script. This movie may not bore us but if you watch first 15 min of it you will realize its a cliched tamil entertainer and your expectations will go down automatically. Only direction slightly saved us. Dhanush in two forms and trisha's performance will be the only highlight of the movie"

My rating- 2.5/5 (watch it for timepass)




Positives- 

1.)Dhanush and Trisha- Both of their performance was superb and it entertained viewers

2.)Fast paced direction and it wont bore us

3.) Good message at end

4.)Cinematography and edits

5.)songs


Negatives-

1.) Outdated script

2.)Cliched scenes

Is it a must watch?

No. 

Overall- Just watch it for timepass. 

My rating- 2.5/5 (watch it for timepass)

Iru mugan movie review

IRU MUGAN
MOVIE REVIEW BY- RIDINBAL 

"A ONE TIME WATCH MOVIE AND THE ONLY SAVING GRACE OF THIS FILM IS THE VIKRAMS LOVE CHARACTER AND BG SCORE ADDED WITH REPEATED ACTION SCENES. IF YOU ARE A VIKRAM FAN THEN GO AND WATCH OTHERWISE WAIT FOR ITS DVD RELEASE"

MY RATING- 2.7/5  
(ONE TIME WATCH FOR VIKRAM FANS) (WASTAGE OF MONEY TO COMMON AUDIENCE)



POSITIVES-

1.)VIKRAM'S DOUBLE ROLE- HIS PERFORMANCE AS LOVE WAS SUPERB. HE IS A VERY GOOD ACTOR AND HE PROVED IT ONCE AGAIN.   YES HE MUST HAVE WORKED VERY HARD TO GET THIS ROLE CORRECTLY AND I APPRECIATE HIM FOR HIS HARD WORK.
2.)BG SCORE AND THEME MUSIC- I LIKED THE IDEA OF USING THEME MUSIC AS BG SCORE IN SOME AREAS BY HARRIS JAYARAJ. AND OTHER BG SCORE WAS AMAZING AND SUITED THIS SCI-FI MOVIE.

3.) ACTION SCENES- ACTION SCENES WERE AMAZING BUT I FELT MOST OF THEM WERE REPEATING AGAIN AND AGAIN. WELL I WONT PUT THIS IN NEGATIVE BUT THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE REPEATED IT.

4.)CINEMATOGRAPHY- IT WAS GOOD AND IT GAVE HOLLYWOOD MOVIE FEEL LIKE.

NEGATIVES-

1.) DIRECTION AND SCRIPT- IT WAS A LAZY DIRECTION AND CLICHED SCRIPT WHICH COULD'NT BRING ANYTHING NEW. I ALMOST FELT LIKE LAUGHING AT FEW SERIOUS SCENES   BECAUSE THE SCRIPT WAS OVERDOSED WITH CLICHES. DIRECTOR ON OTHER HAND WAS STRUGGLING TO BRING FEW GOOD SCENES BUT FAILED BIG TIME. HE WAS TRYING TO MAKE IT AS MIRUTHAN OR EZHAM ARIVU BUT IT DINT WORK OUT  EVEN BY COPYING FEW THRILLING SCENES FROM THESE FILMS AS WELL.

2.) TWISTS AND THRILLS- FAILED TO PROVIDE TWISTS AND THRILLS.

3.) SONGS- HARRIS JAYARAJ WAS TRYING TO COPY HIS OWN PREVIOUS SONGS BUT IT DINT WORK OUT WELL AND IT DINT EVEN MATCH THIS FILM. AS I SAID ONLY BG SCORE AND THEME MUSIC WAS THE ONLY GOOD ONE AND REST ALL MUSIC FAILED.

4.)THAMBI RAMAIAH- HE WAS ANNOYING AT FEW SCENES . I WONT BLAME HIM BECAUSE ITS NOT HIS FAULT AND THE SCRIPT SHOULD GET BLAMED FOR THIS BY GIVING HIM NASTY DIALOGUES. ONLY JOKES AT SOME AREAS WORKED OUT WELL.

5.) NITHYA MENON- WHAT WAS HER ROLE AGAIN? THIS IS WHAT PEOPLE WILL ASK AFTER SEEING THIS MOVIE BECAUSE SHE DINT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO.  SHE WAS JUST WALKING BEHIND VIKRAM AND THATS IT FOR HER AND NOTHING ELSE. 

6.) EDITING AND TIME LIMIT- EDITOR COULD HAVE REDUCED TIME LIMIT BY TRIMMING FEW SCENES BECUASE IT HAS BORED AUDIENCE A LOT. I FELT THE DURATION WAS LONG AND IT IS ONE OF THE SPOILERS IN THIS FILM.

IS IT A MUST WATCH?-

NO , NOT AT ALL. ONLY IF YOU ARE A VIKRAM FAN THEN YOU GO FOR IT OTHERWISE CHUCK IT AND WAIT FOR ITS DVD RELEASE.

OVERALL- ONE TIME WATCHABLE AND TIME PASS ENTERTAINER IS ONLY WHAT I CAN SAY. IT CAN BE WASTAGE OF MONEY AND TIME FOR SOME SO DONT GO WITH HIGH EXPECTATIONS BECAUSE IT CAN SPOIL THE FUN. WATCH IT IF YOU HAVE NO OTHER MOVIES TO WATCH AND WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK.

MY RATING- 2.7/5 (ONE TIME WATCH FOR VIKRAM FANS) (WASTAGE OF MONEY TO COMMON AUDIENCE)

NAMADHU MOVIE REVIEW BY RIDINBAL

NAMADHU
REVIEW BY -RIDINBAL
"NAMADHU IS A EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER  DEPICTING 4 LIVES WITH 4 DIFFERENT EMOTIONS AND THE END GIVES US A LIFE CHANGING MESSAGE WHICH MAY NOT BE THAT APPEALING BUT CERTAINLY A ONE TIME WATCH"
POSTIVES- 
1.)MOHANLAL (COMEBACK AFTER 10 MONTHS)-  HE WAS BRILLIANT AND HE HAS HI POTRAYED CHARACTER  IN A GOOD MANNER THAT YOU WONT FORGET ABOUT HIS PERFORMANCE (WELL DONE). AND IN TELEGU VERSION I WAS IMPRESSED BECAUSE HE HAS ONLY DUBBED IT AND ITS A PROUD MOMENT FOR KERALA. 
2.) GAUTHAMI (I AM SEEING HER AFTER LONG TIME ON SCREEN AND IT WAS A NICE COMEBACK) - HER ROLE DEPICTING A NORMAL MOTHER DOING HOUSEHOLD CHORES WAS EXCELLENT (MAY REMIND YOU OF SRIDEVI IN ENGLISH VINGLISH).
3.) VISHWANT AS ABHIRAM WAS TOTALLY GOOD. HE PORTRAYED THAT TECH GEEK BOY IN A NICE MANNER. AND HIS ROMANTIC SCENES WAS GOOD AND THE SCRIPT WAS ABLE TO SUPPORT HIM WITH PLENTY OF GOOD DIALOGUES WHICH WAS COMFORTABLE FOR HIM AND FOR HIS LIMITED EMOTIONS. 
4.)RAINA AS MAHITHA WAS THE MAIN HIGHLIGHT. SHE HAS DONE HER ROLE EXCELLENTY AND CASTING HER WAS A RIGHT CHOICE INDEED!! AND YES SHE WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE ALL EMOTIONS IN THIS MOVIE WHICH SOME ACTORS FAILED TO PROVIDE IN THIS MOVIE. SHE MAY BE A CHILD ARTIST BUT HER ACTING WAS OUTSTANDING!!
5.) A GOOD MESSAGEFUL FILM.
NEGATIVES-
 
1.) SCRIPT AND DIRECTION- WELL IF THE NATIONAL AWARD WINNING DIRECTOR COULD HAVE TAKEN CARE A BIT THEN THIS MOVIE COULD HAVE ALSO GOT A NATIONAL AWARD. SCRIPT DISSAPOINTED ME AT CERTAIN AREAS AND WE CAN FEEL CLICHES IN TOWARDS CLIMAX WHERE ITS SUPPOSED TO AMAZE US.  CLIMAX WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A LEGEND ONE ACCORDING TO DIRECTOR BUT FOR US IT WAS MIXED BAG OF CLICHES. THERE ARE MANY MOVIES LIKE THIS  AND IT REMINDED ME OF A MALAYALAM MOVIE(PAISA PAISA MOVIE). THAT MOVIE WAS EXCELLENT IN PROVIDING THRILL AS WELL AS EMOTIONS AT THE SAME TIME. I DONT KNOW IF DIRECTOR WAS TRYING TO COPY THAT BUT HE SHOULD HAVE REMAKED IT OTHER THAN ADDING SCENES FROM PAISA PAISA.
I AM NOT SAYING SCRIPT FAILED TO PROVIDE THRILL BUT SUSPENSE IN CLIMAX AND THRILL IN INTERVEL WAS'NT THAT GOOD. FROM DIRECTORS PART HE COULD HAVE MADE IT IN RAW FILM REALNESS FORMAT OTHER THAN FOLLOWING NORMAL COULOURFULL FORMAT . AND PLUS HE COULD HAVE ADDED FEW THRILLER SCENES EXTRA. FROM THE SCRIPT PART I THINK THE SCRIPT COULD HAVE BEEN MORE THRILLING IF THE WRITTERS COULD HAVE ADDED VARIETY AND MOVING DIALOGUES IN TO IT. MAKERS COULD HAVE ADDED FEW VARIETY SCENES TO MAKE IT A EXTRAORDINARY ONE AND THIS FILM HAS A GREAT POTENTIAL TO BE A BEST ONE.
2.)CINEMATOGRAPHY - IT WAS'NT THAT GREAT AND JUST AVERAGE.  
3.)MUSIC- AVERAGE.MY RATING FOR MUSIC- 2.8/5
IS IT A MUST WATCH?
 WELL MY OPINION IS TO THIS IS NOT. WATCH IT FOR TIMEPASS. YEA YOU CAN WATCH WITH YOUR FAMILY AND IT HAS A GOOD MESSAGE TO FUTURE GENERATION SBUT THE SCRIPT FAILED TO EXECUTE IT PROPERLY. SO AGAIN I AM TELLING YOU JUST WATCH IT FOR TIME PASS AND ALSO WATCH WITHOUT MUCH EXPECTATIONS. 
OVERALL- ITS A FAMILY MOVIE WITH GOOD MESSAGE TO EVERYONE BUT YOU MAY FORGET IT AFTER FEW DAYS BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF EXECUTION OF THE FILM WHICH MAKES IT A ONE TIME WATCH. 

MY RATING- 3/5 (ABOVE AVERAGE ONE TIME WATCH WITH A GOOD MESSAGE AND FEW THRILLS AND A SUSPENSE CLIMAX)

Kabali movie review by ridinbal

KABALI MOVIE REVIEW
BY-RIDIN BAL




"A GOOD MOVIE WITH MASS ELEMENTS AND EMOTIONS BUT NOT EVERYONES CUP OF TEA,DO WATCH IT TO KNOW WHETHER ITS FOR YOUR TASTE"
MY RATING- 3.5/5


POSITIVES-

1.)RAJINIKANTH IS BACK!!!. YES HE IS BACK WITH A GOOD MOVIE. I THOUGHT HE WONT BE ABLE TO ACT DUE TO HIS AGE BUT HE ACTED WELL AND HE WAS ABLE TO EXPRESS EMOTIONS AT IMPORTANT SCENES AND THAT WAS SUPERB. AND IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT HIS MASS PERFORMANCE DONT EVEN ASK ME!!! BECAUSE HE HAS DONE IT AMAZING AND THAT HIS IS ALL TIME STRENGTH.(I LOVED HIS ENTRY SCENE AND IT GAVE EVERYONE GOOSEBUMPS IN THEATRE EVEN IF YOUR NOT RAJINI SIR'S FAN.)

2.)DIRECTION AND SCRIPT BY RANJITH WAS EXCELLENT. ITS DIFFICULT NOW A DAYS TO MAKE A MOVIE FOR A SUPER STAR TO ATTRACT FANS AS WELL AS NORMAL AUDIENCE. BUT HE HAS DONE A EXCELLENT MOVE BY MIXING EMOTIONS AND ACTION AT THE SAME TIME.DIALOGUES WERE ALSO GOOD AND NOW  RAJINI'S DIALOGUES ARE ALREADY TRENDING IN SOCIAL MEDIA . (SPECIAL SALUTE TO RANJITH FROM MY SIDE.)

3.) A DIFFERENT AND EXPERIMENTAL ENDING IS ONE OF THE MAJOR THING WHICH IMPRESSED ME. YES THIS IS WHERE PEOPLE WERE CRITICISING ABOUT BUT I DINT FEEL BAD ABOUT IT BECAUSE THE MAKERS WERE TRYING TO ADD RAWNESS TO THE SCREENPLAY AND THAT WORKED OUT FOR ME. AND ALWAYS ONE CANT EXPECT A MASS ENDING IN EVERY MASALA MOVIE AND THAT SPOILS ONES EXPECTATION. (I AM TELLING IT HERE SO THAT YOU WONT GO WITH HIGH EXPECTATIONS JUST LIKE WHAT I DID)

4.)MUSIC AND BG SCORE IS ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT!! WELL DONE SANTOSH(MUSIC DIRECTOR). ESPECIALLY THAT EMOTIONAL TRACK KEEPING AS A BG SCORE WAS A NICE IDEA.  MY RATING FOR THE MUSIC- 4.3/5

NEGATIVES-

1.)RADHIKA APTE(RAJINI'S WIFE IN THIS MOVIE) DINT DO WELL. SHE HAS ONE  OF THE IMPORTANT ROLE IN THIS FILM AND DIRECTORS CASTING WAS WRONG.
SHE LOOKED YOUNG EVEN IN HER OLD AGE IN THIS FILM AND NEVER MATCHED FOR RAJINIKANTH.(JUST BY GREYING HER HAIR AND WRINKLED SKIN WONT WORK OUT AND THAT TOO FOR RAJINIKANTH'S MOVIE)

2.) DHANSHIKA(RAJINI'S DAUGHTER IN THIS MOVIE) FAILED TO ACT WITH EMOTIONS AND AS WELL AS TOMBOY. THAT RAWNESS WASNT THERE IN HER FACE AND SHE LOOKED TOO CONFUSING(MAY BE SCRIPT'S FAULT).JUST BY HOLDING GUN NO ONE WILL BE A GANGSTER AND SHORT HAIR CUT DOESNT MEAN THAT SHE HAS TO BE A TOMBOY. (AGAIN CASTING FAULT)

3.)VILLIANS EVERYONE LOOKED TOO CLICHED FOR THIS GOOD MOVIE. A GOOD LOOKING FOREIGN VILLIAN , A TYPICAL TAMIL GOON WITH ALL THE CHAINS AND MUSTACHE IS ALWAYS THERE IN TAMIL MOVIES AND NOW IT IS EVEN SPREADED TO FULL INDIAN CINEMA. I DONT GET IT BECAUSE ITS TOO CLICHED AND DIRECTORS DONT REALIZE IT!!. (TOO SHAME AND DISAPOINTING  ). THE MOVIE IS MADE WITH LITTLE VARIETIES IN THE SCREENPLAY BUT  THEY FORGOT IN THE CASTING AND CHARACTERS PART. 

 4.) YES THEY HAVE ADDED AND MIXED BOTH EMOTIONS AND MASS BUT THAT MAY NOT WORK OUT TO MAJOR SECTOR OF AUDIENCE. EITHER DIRECTOR COULD HAVE ADDED MASS LITTLE MORE THAN EMOTION OR VISE VERSA. TO ATTRACT BOTH SECTION OF AUDIENCE IS A DIFFICULT JOB I KNOW THAT  AND DIRECTOR HAS TRIED HIS BEST BUT MIXING SHOULD BE ALWAYS BE TAKEN CARE OF WHEN MAKING A MOVIE. I DINT FEEL THIS AS A MAJOR FAULT BUT 85% OF THE MAJORITY AUDIENCE FELT IT. SO I WAS JUST HIGHLIGHTING IT!!

IS IT A MUST WATCH? 
ANSWER TO THAT WILL DEPEND ON WHAT TASTE YOU HAVE. SO GO TRY IT IN THEATRES KEEPING LOW EXPECTATIONS

MY RATING - 3.5/5 (KEEP LOW EXPECTATIONS AND WATCH)

IF YOU WANT TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS THEN COMMENT BELOW AND WE CAN DISCUSS ABOUT THIS MOVIE!! :)

 MOVIE REVIEW BY- RIDINBAL



ONE OF THE BEST MOVIE IN TAMIL AND  WATCH FOR SURIYAS ACTING

My Rating-4.8/5



Well this is one of the best tamil movie that enters in my heart as well as in my favourite movies list. Everything is executed properly and no complaints for this movie. Only a very few movies made in India have succeeded in the science fiction fantasy genre and this movie has suceeded it. It is a science thriller fantasy, the film really manages to take us to that zone of a fantasy movie with best music given by AR RAHMAN.


A scientist invents a time machine, which leads to a bitter battle between his evil twin brother and his son. .


Suriyas acting is one of the best in this film with three different roles. One villianish , nerdy scientist and cool youngster. well it is an amazing come back for suriya after series of flops. Dint have hopes for this film because of his back to back flops but he took away my believe with a speed wind in form of his acting. thumbs up for his acting. special mention to his villian role. That role was too classic and i really loved it.(this is one of the important character) . His nerdy scientist role was also good. his cool youngster role was usual role which we can see in his  many past movies. Samantha was good even though she dint have much to do in this film except showing her cute smile and romancing our hero. Nithya menon had very short role and she had nothing much to do. Cant blame her because script demanded only that much for her. Saranya Ponvannan was good as suriya's mother and it was her as usual mother roles which we could see that in one her movies named "velai illa pattathari "(cant give much details about her role because it can be a spoiler). Sathyans comedy was good. Basically this movie was a one man show by suriya in three different get ups so full praise goes to suriya.

vikram kumar (director and writer) did amazing direction. If he dint direct properly then this movie could have been a disaster. why i said this is because this movies story was like a thin thread like plot which is very risky for any director to take and one small mistake can make this movie worse at box office.So salute for taking risk. I am not saying story was bad but it was totally risky.  So hats off to the director who is also writer in this film. This is Suriya's big production venture with a whooping budget 70+ crore (Thats why i said its risky). If this movie was flop it will have a hard effect on producer and that is suriya. I appreciate  suriya also for taking risk.  Special mention to AR Rahman for making wonderfull and soothing music and it matches perfectly for this film. So Salute to AR Rahman.(Background music was just ok and dint reach my expectations but songs were boss). Cinematography by tirru was good for this high budget film and it his style remainded me of PC Sree Ram (camera man of film "i"). Editing and vfx was very good.

overall this movie deserves a must watch rating. You dont need to go with high expectations because there is a chance of slightly dissapointing you with suriyas romance with samantha and for long duration(i dint feel anything with this negative point but public feels it so i thought of remainding you). Stop looking at your pocket money and start spending for right movies . Dont forget to go with your family and specially with children because they will love it even though there are blood violent scenes before intervel and i am still wondering how did this movie get U certificate from censor board.

MY MOVIE RATINGS- 4.8/5( GOOD SCIENCE FICTION TAMIL MOVIE)(WATCH WITHOUT MUCH HYPE)
