KABALI : Rajnikanth still commands the screen!

For a generation of viewers who know him only from the Rajnikanth jokes and memes, or from blockbusters like Baasha, Sivaji and Enthiran, it would be wise to watch some of his earlier work – I strongly recommend Mani Ratnam’s Thalapathi.

‘SULTAN’ shattering all box office records!! – Movie Review

We first meet Sultan (played by Salman Khan) in the ring, an enclosed dirt pit onto which he purposefully strides before breaking his opponents’ bones with the brute force of his boulder-like arms.

‘TE3N’ – A movie to watch!

Remember that reasonably engrossing Hollywood thriller Se7en, in which two sleuths go looking for a serial killer with a thing for the seven deadly sins?

‘Romeo Juliet’ – Light-hearted Romantic Comedy! – Tamil Movie Review

Director Lakshman whips up a lighthearted souffle’ called Romeo Juliet. Sprinkled liberally with so-called humor, the film makes some rather predictable points about love, straining its already-thin premise.

‘One thinks only to know something!’

I was recently listening to a heated discussion between Philosopher and enlightened being, U.G. Krishnamurti( 1918-2007) and his philosopher colleagues on the YouTube. U. G.
