Tag Archives: Good Tamil Movie

Amma Kanakku (T)


This is a gem of a movie. Takes Indian cinema few notches up in a gentle and a heart warming way. The movie is a remake of the Hindi film ‘Nil Battey Sannata’. When I was lamenting that most of the Tamil films are same old same trash, this movie is a refreshing and gentle tearjerker. Marvellous movie.

The story is about the aspirations of a poor mother for her child. With no emotional or sentimental over dose this movie is brought to life by Amal Paul, Samuthrikani and good old Revathy.

Amala Paul transforms has a poor but determined Chennai ‘Vellikari’  with a scintillating performance. She talks to your heart and reminds you of the dreams you have/had for your children when they were growing up. Rarely do I get involved to the point of tear drops welling in my eyes. Good movie and must see for all families. Specially with the children.

Saivam.jpgSome movies have eternal appeal and for the whole family. If you ever want to watch a clean, good movie, this 2014 movie will impress you. Story is set in a village and around a big family. Sara Arjun gives a stellar performance and steals your heart. The cast is large and everyone adds to the drama. Nassar leads the big cast and steers it to a memorable movie.

Singer Unnikrishnan’s eight-year-old daughter Uthara Unnikrishnan recorded the song “Azhagu” which won the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer,making her the youngest winner of the prestigious award. This is family   viewing at best. You will be impressed by the ending.  Rating a big G.
