    Director: Magilzh Thirumeni
    Cast: Arya, Hansika
    Set in Goa, the film is about the efforts by the cops to ferret out the kingpin of a drug cartel. Its intelligent scripting, stylish and slick narration, and fast pace ensure an engaging action thriller. There are some glitches, but the positives outweigh the negatives. The technical crew and the ensemble cast of actors add adequate support. In a role tailormade for him, Arya looks cool and suave, and essays the role of undercover cop with elan.

        Time for action
        a�?Ita��s not an issue based or an experimental film…Ita��s a stylish commercial entertainer thata��s true to its genre,a�? says director Magizh Thirumeni about Meegamann, his Christmas offering. The Arya-Hansika starrer has Arya moving away from the romantic outings of recent films, and venturing into an action mode.

        madras3Laugh riot
        Soori has carved an enviable niche for himself as a comedian to reckon with. Makers are now approaching him for roles where he does not have to play sidekick to the hero. On the floors is Sarvadhikari where Soori plays the lead with debutant Renuka and comedians like Robot Shankar supporting him. The film is helmed by debut producer-write-director Shiva. With comedy in the first half, it is thrills and action in the second half.

        madras1aLitmus test
        Ita��s testing time for Vaibhav who is steadily graduating from acting in multiple starrers to playing solo leads. In the Christmas release, Kappal, he plays the lead again, sharing frames with Sonam Bajwa. Centered around friendship and bonding, ita��s a light hearted entertainer. The film is directed by Kartik G Krish, a former assistant to Shankar.

            Having reclaimed their homeland from the dragon, Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. While Bilbo (Freeman) is seen fighting for his life, only Gandalf (McKellen) sees enemy Sauron rising too. Phenomenal effects, action and a hint of emotion, make this one the best of the series.

            Director: Prabhudheva
            Cast: Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam
            Romance blossoms between small-time crook Vishi (Devgn), and HR executive Khushi (Sinha). But their relationship takes a complicated turn when the police and an international don are on the lookout for professional assassin AJ, who looks like Vishi. Poor direction and a mixed plot makes for a movie that fails to entertain.

            Director: K S Ravikumar
            Cast: Rajinikanth, Anushka, Sonakshi Sinha
            Set in two time periods, with a dam playing a crucial role in both. Rajinikanth dons a dual role. Looking dapper as the collector-king, he gets some fine performing moments. But as Lingaa the present day thief, ita��s a predictable character.The heroines fit in suitably. The first half is racy and engaging. But the second slackens, it’s length and weak climax a downer.
