    Hindi Medium U

    HM takes up the root of dramedy in disclosing the issues of education system and the mindset and attitude towards it in today's India. The Lead Roles carry the Movie throughout the end, serve as a fair medium while conveying the intentions and backing up the flow at sulky states as well. Making the Screenplay lighter appeals for the Masses which at the same leaves inconsistent pace issues that limits the Direction to move through without balancing the Film. The Cinematography is only tolerable and stays that way through to the last.
    3.1 for the light and fairish Writing followed by adequate Direction and the comfortably engaging Leads.

    OKKM builds around its characters' attributes and finishes with exhibiting human nature at various states and situations. The comical fragments spreading through the tension shoots up the Film because of the contradicting feels that it brings out of those moments. The Writing should be lauded for creating a series of events that finished with an impasse from the indefinite reality, whereas the Direction opened up a way for the Screenplay to build up and strike the right chords most times while fading at times, mostly because of the erratic Performances of some Actors and the Music that couldn't give the pace a push up. 
    3 stars for the elaborate Writing and the Direction that built around it with ups and downs.

    Neerja U

    Neerja, the film too braved out soulfully like the brave woman. The Direction rode on the cozy and heartwarming Writing truly and gracefully yet left a thought of wanting more. The Performances did their parts absolutely well in especial the Lead. The Lead Lady elated the choices of the Character positively and set up a unshakable picture of Neerja finally made a proud emphasis. The Technical values assisted the run really well. Lastly, Neerja stood true to Her Characteristics.
     3.5 for the narrating this bravish Incident with high spirits and emotions.        

    Airlift U/A

    Airlift was a successful mission with the accuracy on details having been worked on highly. While detailing lent its support very effectively for the move the Movie was short on extravagant aspect, away from the convention. Striking out the demand would yet leave a very good Flick and no disappointing jobs done, which would have to do with every direct associations with the Film. The Satisfaction did grew towards the end for keeping the line without losing.
    3.5 for the highly satisfying grandeur.      

    Thozha U

    Thozha didn't mix in well with the pattern used. The Original stands beyond measure and stood perfectly strong while passing over every comparable and additive scene. Though the Lead Actor Karthi delivered agreeable Performance to the territorial setting, the balance failed with the other Lead Actor Nagarjuna. The added circumstances totally blemished of its overused approach. Some retaining from the Original made wee bit watchable.
    1 star for the few contained Original spirit.

    Puthiya Niyamam U/A

    Puthiya Niyamam got clinched to a smooth and steady pace that finally raced towards an intensified and enhanced end. With no uninterrupted factors, the simple Writing aced very much above the known and familiar base could offer. Most of all the elements got well and worked together into presenting the Film much more than watchable. The composing befitting the disposition of the characters and the pace brought pushing grip.
    3.5 stars for the harmonious work that added delighting betterment to the usual.      

    Zero U/A

    Zero deceived of the promising impressions and expectations that It created. The total disappointment plus the peskiness infested a hate against this squandered, meandering Flick. No elements could be added up to making worthwhile or even to atleast stand by It. Complete disastrous, supposed 'New Age' attempt where even a nice and growing, talented Composer looked lame.
    0 star for the uninspiring ruin.
