1. Vada Chennai | Starring – Dhanush | Director – Vetri Maaran

Reason #1 (Story and Screenplay): The story isn’t completely about Anbu and his life with the gangsters. Instead, the character of Dhanush is entangled into the main plot and it is not a hero-centric film as the story and the other characters play a pivotal role. Vetrimaaran, who is known for his screenplay and also won a National Award had composed the film with much competence as the characters are neatly sketched and every scene was crucial in building the movie. I loved the way the story took time to construct itself onscreen, running on its own pace and most importantly there isn’t any mind-numbing ridiculous songs or clichéd romantic scenes to disrupt the flow. The narrative of the film was in such a way that if something happens on screen, like a murder, it was explained later on in the film without a plot hole. So, there is a steady search for answers for the audience as they weren’t foreseeable.

Reason #2 (Characters & Performances): The cast of the film was a perfect selection, be it Samuthirakani or Kishore or Daniel Balaji, Vetrimaran has roped in the ‘Best’ for the movie. Andrea Jeremiah unsurprisingly steals the show, yet another vital character and she’s impressive as always. The impact she created when uttering the dialogue ‘Enna Patha Thevdiya Mari Iruka?’ is enormous. But, the stand out characters for me was Rajan played by the ace-director Ameer. His character had an emotional narrative which was very interesting to watch.

Reason #3 (Rating and Background Music): Vetrimaaran seems to not compromise in anything for making the film utterly realistic. They even went for ‘Adults Only’ certification from the censor board without muting the unparliamentary words which was a bold attempt cause that made the film more native. Another pillar to the already astonishing film was Santhosh Narayanan (SaNa) and his pulsating background score. As I mentioned earlier, there weren’t dance numbers or a hero introduction song which films of this genre generally tend to have. Instead, the songs blended well with the scenes. SaNa did know when to use the background score, thereby elevating the film on a tremendous level.

#2. 96 | Starring – Vijay Sethupathi & Trisha | Director – Prem Kumar

Reason #1 (Direction & Performances): Director Prem Kumar deserves appreciation for such a beautiful story which didn’t rush and took time to settle. Certain scenes are long enough to create an impact as the director Kumar gives ample time for us to dissolve into it. Vijay Sethupathi is very natural with his acting skills and has given a subtle yet powerful performance. He expresses love, shyness, and sorrow through his body language, mannerism, and proves that he is the best actor in the business. Trisha Krishnan is sure to impress everyone with her eyes and expressions and has given a very strong, deep, and unforgettable performance. Forget Jessie, Jaanu will be remembered for a very long time.

Reason #2 (Cinematography & Music): Cinematography and music were the other two intriguing aspects of this film. Shanmuga Sundaram’s frames were not conventional and have managed to capture the details and emotions in depth. Govind Menon had created magic with his music, which was the backbone for the movie. He has helped create a much-needed impact which the director would have wanted through his poignant music, evoking strong emotions.
