Padma Bhushan for Ulaganayagan


Veteran actor Kamal Haasan has added yet another feather to his cap. The actor is all set to be honoured with one of the highest civilian honours in the nation- Padma Bhushan.

The legendary actor was quoted saying, “I feel proud to be an Indian. India is a country with great talents in various fields. While legions await to be honoured, I’m honoured that I have been chosen for the Padma Bhushan by my Government. I think it is sheer chance and my good fortune that I have been chosen. I hope that I would live long to do more to deserve this award. I don’t consider this an honour for the work that I have already done. This would be an impetus for me to do more good work, perhaps only then would I deserve it. My heartfelt congratulations to the other Padma Bhushan awardees, especially my friend Mr. Vairamuthu.”

Inga Enna Solludhu will be a breezy entertainer


Inga Enna Solludhu, which has VTV Ganesh, Simbu, Andrea and Meera Jasmine in the lead, is set for release. About the film, director Vincent Selva — who prefers to be called V Selva now — says, “This breezy entertainer is about the life of a 42-year-old bachelor, Ganesh, which is played by VTV Ganesh. The plot is a compilation of all the interesting incidents that happen in his life. Simbu plays a prominent role in this story. He agreed to do it after listening to the narration. And, Santhanam plays the role of a driver and the audience will get to see the complete actor in him in this key role.”

Ask him how the film fell in place, and the director has a tale to narrate. He says, “I met VTV Ganesh at a coffee shop and we were casually discussing this story plot. As our conversation progressed, we shaped a simple one-liner that was later fleshed out into a beautiful story. That’s how this project took shape,” reveals V Selva, who had earlier directed a couple of film starring Vijay in his career.

Elaborating on Simbu’s role, the director says, “The lead character (Ganesh) meets people from different shades in his life. Simbu is one such interesting character he comes across.”

Inge Enna Solludhu, which is being released by Sri Thenandal Films, will hit screens on January 30

I refuse to comment on my personal life: Taapsee


The latest buzz is that Taapsee is seeing shuttler Mathias Boe. Reportedly, they are in regular touch with each other on Twitter. It seems that Mathias had earlier dropped on to the set of Taapsee’s film last month. When we quizzed the actress about these rumours, she states that she’d prefer to be tight-lipped about it. “A lot has been written about my personal life and I’m tired of giving explanations. I do not want to talk anything at this point in time.”

So, does that mean that she’s denying the link-up rumours? “Well, I refuse to comment on my personal life. I’m tired of the never-ending link-up stories that keep circulating every day.”

Malini 22 Palayamkottai Movie Review


22 Female Kottayam was a Malayalam film which was a brave attempt, packaged in a stylish way. It’s unfair to compare the original with a remake in another language but a film that had all the ingredients which will make the audiences glued to their seats never come together and ends up as a damp squib.

Malini (Nitya Menen) is a young nurse, who hails from Palayamkottai who is working in a private hospital and hoping to find a job and migrate to Canada. Her parents are no more and she has a younger sister Shalini (Vidyulekha). Malini lives with two other nurses Sarala( Kovai Sarala) and Jency (Anjali)

Malini’s life changes after she meets a young man Varun (Krish Sathar) who promises her visa to Canada. She falls for his ample charms quite easily, goes with him to a pub, gets drunk and even moves in to his apartment as she waits for her visa. But fate had different plans in store for her.

The areas that needed more focus have been handled with in a less serious way by director Sri Priya. The character of Malini itself is rather half-baked, with her nature fluctuating quite abruptly. At times she is naïve and gullible, and in latter half, her transformation into the bold and revenge-seeking girl is too fast and looks unconvincing.

The antagonist Prakash played by Naresh is a major disappointment and is no patch on Pratap Pothen who played the psychotic boss. Krish is promising while Nitya Menen struggles to carry the film on her shoulders. The comedy scenes of Kovai Sarala make you cringe in your seats and give the film a crass feel.

Most scenes lack the energy that was required to elevate this film into an edge-of-the-seat revenge drama. What you get is a sadly tiresome film that feels too long with songs and unwanted comedy! And wonder how a film with adult content, booze, bad language and the line- “Can I have sex with you” got through with a clean U certificate?

Verdict: Below Average
