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 Khana��s double role. High on emotion and grandeur, this film is a family entertainer. While Barjatya successfully taps into Khana��s emotional side, Kapoor is resplendent in her role as a princess. Though the story is a tad too dramatic, it doesna��t disappoint.
a�� Team Indulge
Director: Rajesh M Seva
Cast: Kamal Haasan, Trisha, Prakash Raj, Asha Sarath
An almost faithful adaptation of the French film Sleepless Night, ita��s centered around a cocaine-heist gone wrong and a copa��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 Raja��s quirky humour peps up the scenes. The pace is a little slow, but the movie is different and a decent entertainer.
a�� Malini Mannath
Cast: Ajith Kumar, Shruthi Haasan,
It has all the cliches one would expect from a mass heroa��s film. But if the film still manages to hold onea��s attention, ita��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, ita��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. Ita��s a festival treat for the actora��s fans.
