Karthi seems to be having a dream run in Kollywood. He is like a batsman in in prime form smashing all deliveries to boundary. As long as you are not ready to complain that 'Siruithai' lacks logic, the film would work big time, as it is an out and out commercial fare.

Filmmaker Sri Balaji, once an associate of director Susindran had narrated the story of ‘Kullanari Koottam’ to Vishnu. Though it took a long time for the project to commence, Sri Balaji has made it happen now. It was expected that the film would be a romantic comedy as it was very much signifying with the posters. But what we watch on the screens turns out to be out of expectations. Of course, the film belongs to the genre of ‘romantic comedy’ all for the sake of name, but when it comes down the entire film, there is nothing much interesting to mark upon.

Normally director Bala films will have comedy scenes but Avan Ivan has more comedy scenes.

Ajith, the 'King of Box Office Openings' has once again proved that he is THALA. Mankatha is an Ajith movie all the way. Venkat Prabhu has been a worthy director to Ajith and given the actor a strong and interesting movie. It is sure to make Ajith fans very happy to see their star in a different role.Arjun has excelled in his role and proves that he is truly the Action King. Yuvan Shankar Raja's music, especially the background score adds to the thrill of the movie.

Ajith's 50th film didn't happen at an ease for the actor took a very long time and scrutinizing efforts to choose the best one. Initially, he was supposed to work with Gautham Vasudev Menon and it failed due to some difference of opinions. The actor later had discussions with more filmmakers including directors Vijay, Vishnuvardhan and many more. In fact, 'Billa-2' was supposed to be his 50th film.

But finally, 'Mankatha' as the title suggests happened on the game of probability as Venkat Prabhu didn't have Ajith in mind while penning the script. Ajith had personally requested Venkat Prabhu to get ready with a script that features him in a negative role. Of course, everything was finalized during 11th hour.

Bouquet to debutant filmmaker Saravanan for etching out a film that speaks about feelings of people and the value of every single life. With handful of characters, the director has come out with a flick that is filled with fun, joy, tears and other human emotions.

What begins as a journey in a bus takes twists and turns, and when we think all is well that ends well, a shocking incident happens. But hold on! There is no preachy stuff as Saravanan manages to lace the message with lighter moments in the film.

Director Dharani is one of the masters of commercial cinema. Dabanng is a commercial blockbuster in Bollywood. Simbu is an actor who combines style and substance in Kollywood. What happens when the three come together? A heady cocktail of a mass masala entertainer is the end result. That is Osthi for you.

It is like been on a roller-coaster ride with fun, speed and style from the word go. More of a movie that we had seen in our growing up days, Osthi promises more of action at quick pace.

Simbu rocks all the way. He gives a matured performance and serious about his task. He combines humour with style. Richa is refreshing and bubbles with enthusiasm. Sonu Sood recreates the Dabanng magic here. He enacted the same role in original with greater perfection. Santhanam’s rib-tickling comedy and enough screen space for Jithan Ramesh makes it count.

Dharani has ensured everyone in the film including Nasser, Revathy, Thambi Ramiah, Vaiyapuri or Mayilsamy gets a part to play. Thaman’s music gives a lift to the film. The pacy numbers are foot-tapping with cinematographer Gopinath capturing them in a grand manner.

Osthi is no serious film, but one that may end up entertaining you.
