A remake of the Hindi hit Taxi No 9211, this film pits powerhouse performer Pasupathi against the promising Ajmal. If the movie, directed by A. Lakshmikanthan, is watchable, credit goes to the cast, which includes the gorgeous Simran, shining in yet another finely nuanced performance as Pasupathi’s wife. Also starring Meenakshi as Ajmal’s girl. A ride you can quite enjoy.LAADAM
Kunjithapatham, a village youth, lands a lucrative job, but his joy is short-lived as he is caught in the crossfire between two rival gangs. The protagonist is real, often reduced to tears, and is taunted as a “cockroach”. Aravindhan is convincing as the timid Kunjithapatham, as later as the fighting machine. Joining him is Charmi, cast in a refreshingly different character. Also starring Kota Srinivasa Rao and Jaya Prakash as dons.PERUMAL
Directed by Vincent Selva and starring Sundar C, Namita and Meenakshi, the film does convey a message but in an unimpressive manner. The story revolves around the hero, who is out to take on those who supply banned drugs to hospitals and cause misery. A time pass film for the weekend.
