After seeing Balaji Mohan, Karthik Subbaraj, Nalan Kumarasamy and a series of other short film directors making their entry into Kollywood, here is one more joining the club! It is debutant Nithilan, who has directed Kurangu Bommai starring Vidaarth, legendary director Bharathiraja, Kumaravel and others. ...Read full review
Many heroes go behind star value. Very few heroes go behind script. Vidharth easily belongs to the latter kind of hero. His recent films `Kuttrame Thandanai` and `Oru Kidaayin Karunai Manu` are films that were hailed as gems that emerge very rarely in Tamil cinema.

An aged father who desperately needs money for her daughter`s wedding. An unnecessary female lead, whose father`s medication costs Rs 80,000. What happens when these characters; these stories, overlap with one another? ...Read full review
