Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
Director: Sooraj R Barjatya
Cast: Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor
Director Sooraj Barjatya is known to make films which re-emphasise family values and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is no different. The highlights are the scale of opulence and Salman Khan’s double role. High on emotion and grandeur, this film is a family entertainer. While Barjatya successfully taps into Khan’s emotional side, Kapoor is resplendent in her role as a princess. Though the story is a tad too dramatic, it doesn’t disappoint.

Director: Rajesh M Seva
Cast: Kamal Haasan, Trisha, Prakash Raj, Asha Sarath
An almost faithful adaptation of the French film Sleepless Night, it’s centered around a cocaine-heist gone wrong and a cop’s desperation to get back his kidnapped son. Shot in a nightclub, the confined space has been used to good effect. Haasan renders a restrained performance. Prakash Raj’s quirky humour peps up the scenes. The pace is a little slow, but the movie is different and a decent entertainer.

Cast: Ajith Kumar, Shruthi Haasan,
It has all the cliches one would expect from a mass hero’s film. But if the film still manages to hold one’s attention, it’s because of its blocks of interesting moments and its fast tempo, which does not allow one to mull over the glitches for long. And more importantly, it’s the charming screen presence of Ajith that holds the film together. Gleeful in his brutality as he goes about meting out punishment to the wrong doers, he is a delight to watch. It’s a festival treat for the actor’s fans.
