Iruttu Arayil Murratu Kuthu
'Iruttu Arayil Murratu Kuthu' is Santhosh P Jayakumar's second film and attempt at an adult comedy genre. Like his previous movie 'Hara Hara Mahadevi', this flick is also an all out sex comedy film that had all the viewers either cringing or laughing out loud with its direct innuendos, glamour quotient and literally uncensored scenes.

Five friends, who are hearing and speech impaired by mercury poisoning, meet at a memorial day.

Kathadi revolves around two theifs and the consequences they face after kidnapping a little girl. Though it sound serious the film's main USP is it's humour. It's a decent attempt at an action comedy, which also consists of various other elements, such as; sentiment, love, friendship, etc.
Yenda Thalaiyila Enna Vaikala

What should have been a horror comedy film, 'Merlin' is filled with comedy and has nothing to do with the scary genre. Times are changing, and makers should make it a point to change the way a ghost is also represented. Maybe, director V Keera could have executed the movie in a better way with improvised creativity and quality making.
In short, 6 Athiyayam, is an interesting attempt, with quality the film could have been better.

'Naachiyaar' revolves around three characters, their lives and perspectives. Bala is back with yet another intense film, but this time in a crime thriller genre, and in a different style of making. Though the direction screams Bala, the movie doesn't let you leave the theatre with disturbing thoughts, like how his previous films does.
Arjun Sarja is back to Kollywood as a filmmaker. This time he has decided to direct Aishwarya, and to mark this film as a re-entry for her. Like all his previous movies Arjun has once again made a film which revolves around patriotism and love.
Though 'Kalakalappu 2' is said to be a sequel to the 2012 release, laugh riot 'Kalakalappu', the new film has no connections between the two. Sundar C once again delivers a neat film which runs high on humour, even though many loose ends are evident. The wafer-thin story has nothing new to offer but has all the elements one expects from a true commercial movie.
