The Age of Adaline (English) 2015 Movie review:

Vasu Gangapalli

A young woman who is born at the turn of the 20th century, becomes ageless after a bizzare accident.Adaline miraculously remains 29 years old for almost 8 decades.She lived a solitary life never allowing anyone to come close to her so that she can safeguard her secret. Also shifting to different places with new identities. It is amazing to see when her only daughter starts growing older than her. The wonderful relationship they …both share.Then she meets a man who complicates her eternal life. This one is surely a different romantic tale which drew me into it. This movie is almost perfect with wonderful performances, intertesting screen play and direction and above all a wonderful, but strange love story. Great support comes from Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker as Ellis’ parents. This one surely surpassed my expectations. Not sure how I missed this amazing movie so long? Overall a beautifully crafted movie with an amazing story and performances that seem real. My rating is 4.5/5. Again, highly recommended. I had seen this one on Netflix.

K.D.(Tamil) 2019 Movie Review:

Vasu Gangapalli

Thanks to Veena for recommending this movie :). KD is full of life. It is about wonderful friendship between a run away 80 year old man and an orphan kid of 8 years old. It is directed by a female director Madhumita Sundararaman. The unique way of writing the bucket list on a tree truck. The movie has wonderful moments which makes you to smile and even brings tears to eyes with its emotions that tug at the heart strings. Karuppu Durai (Mu Ramasa…my) and Kutty (Nagavishal) chemistry on screen is as realistic as it could get. The movie starts with Karuppu Durai who has been in coma for three months. How his cildren plan to get rid of him and at that very moment K.D. wakes up from his coma, and is long gone before his children realise that he is missing from his bed. The supporting characters have given good performance as well. Like the biriyani shop owner whose business booms after Karuppu’s way of eating Biryani inspires or tempts many to go for it. All in all a wonderful movie not to be missed. I had given it a miss seeing the movie poster, but then my cousin made me see it. My rating is 4.5/5. Highly recommnded.

Director Madhumita with her wonderful creation!!

Sillu Karuppatti (Tamil) 2019 Movie Review:

Vasu Gangapalli

An anthlogy of 4 romantic tales of four different aged group people that are connected by the magic thread called Love. Off course, Ola and Alexa become part of the these stories which seem bit unrealistic. But then everything is fair in the game of love and war. This one is another wonderful feel good movie I have seen after K.D. The director wanted to narrate 4 different types of love and did a fine job in executing it really well…. The movie is engrossing from start to finish, with no dull moment in it. I liked all the 4 stories, but my fav one is “Turtle”. Then comes “Kakka Kadi” which shows that there is hope in every situation in life, we just need to hold it in our hands to see through any difficult situation. Then comes “Pink Bag” which has innocent and pure form of love. And then last but not the least is Hey Ammu in which Amazon Alexa plays the cupid in the lost love of married couple with three kids. All in all, a wonderful feel good movie not be missed at any cost. Highly recommended. My rating is 5/5. I wish I could give more 🙂

Same Kind of Different as Me (English) 2017 Movie Review:

 It was its unique title that got my attention today while browsing through the Netflix. I never heard before about this amazing movie based on a true inspiring story.Not everyone is lucky enough to get a second chance like Ron Hall, who cheats on his wife and she gives two choices: one is to leave or to stay back. If he stays back then he will never see the other woman again and he decides to stay back.Then comes Denver a homeless man who is dangerous into their lives. Debbie sees him first in her dream. How Debbie transforms him forms the crux of the story.

Not just that, this movie is about relationships, a son who doesn’t likes his father for his mannerism.Then Denver makes him see the hidden good in his father.This movie which is based on a book written by person on whose life story this movie is based is very touching and moving.

The only downside is its slow pace. Then this pace starts to pick up momentum as the movie progresses. All in all, a wonderful movie everyone needs to see it. One of the best movies I have seen in years about human relationships. My rating is 5/5. Highly Recommended.

P.S: The second picture is of the real people on whom this movie is based upon.
