1) Super Hero

So he visits SS Stantly, a psychiatrist, to discuss the situation. Co-incidentally, Taman sees the immediate future and leaves the clinic to go save the situation. On returning back he explains it to the doctor, who cross checks and believes him for real this time.
On further examination they find out that Taman is only able to predict danger when people he knows are directly involved in the trouble. To test the theory, Stantly willingly puts his life in danger. The rest of the story revolves around whether they succeed in it or back fires at them.
Both Taman and Stantly has delivered a decent performance. Though director Cable B Sankar's idea seems to be interesting, he has failed to deliver a clear output, as it is confusing and has many loose ends. CJ Rajkumar's cinematography skill's come to fore and his shots could have been better. PC Sam's music are decent.
2) Ini Thodarum

Through this story, Shankar V Thiyagarajan tried to explain that you can never escape karma, and the wrath of revenge. Shankar has done a decent job in the directorial department. The child actors' make up could have been more terrfying. Pop Suresh has done a good performance. CJ Rajkumar's cinematography skills could have been better. PC Sam's music are decent.

The story and direction is straight forward and predictable, yet the director Ajayan Bala has done a decent job. Kishore has delivered a good performance, so are the pther actors. Joshua's music is in sync with the genre and Pon Kasirajan's shots are average.

Suresh EAV has done a pretty decent job in the directorial department even though many loose ends are evident. Sanjeev's performance is appreciable. While Tajnoor's background scores are decent, Arun Mozhi Sozhan's cinematography could have been better

Director Lokesh has attempted a different kind of horror story here, and it works well with the audience. Vishnu fits the role of a cursed youngster perfectly. However Sathish Kumar's music could have been better, while Arun Mani Palani's cinematography skills are medicore
