                   FILM REVIEWS
*RAMAN ABDULLAH:this film is doing well.such things are possible only
 in Tamil Nadu.this film is SABASH MEENA(Part-n).though it is a comedy
 film,it is a similar to SABASH MEENA and ULLATHAI ALLITHA.Raman
 (Vignesh)and Abdullah(Karan) are friends.Abdullah gets a job in Ooty 
 as a school teacher.Abdullah asks Raman to go to Ooty instead of him.
 Raman goes as Abdullah to Ooty and soon Abdullah joins him as Raman.
 the remaining story is known to you.even the comedy scenes in this 
 film are a copy and one major comedy scene is stolen from POOVE 
 UNAKKAGA.during the titles,they say Balu Mahendra is the director.
 i strongly disagree to it.the only good thing about the movie is 
 Illayaraja's music.once again he has proved that he is a Maestro.
*NERUKKU NERR:this film was released on Sept 6th.This film is part deux
 of AGNI NATCHATHIRAM.Raghuvaran and his wife split due to some family
 problem.Vijay is Raghu's brother and Surya(debut-Sivakumar's son) is
 wife's brother.Vijay and Surya fight throughout the movie(like Prabhu
 and Karthik in AN) and finally unite to save Raghuvaran's daughter.
 the heroines Simran and Kousalya(KALAMELLAM KADHAL VAZHGA)are the 
 major assets(like VIP,they will have a major contribution to the films 
*ADRA SAKHAI ADRA SAKHAI:this Pandiyarajan starrer is doing well in all
 the centers.though the film has a lot of double meaning dialogues it 
 has managed to pull the "Cinema mania" ladies crowd of Tamail Nadu.
 though the comedy is good,this film lacks something....bad screenplay,
 confusing climax(where suddenly you come to know that Pandiyarajan is
 doing a dual role) etc. anyway the film is doing well.
*AAHA ENNA PORUTHAM:(Ramki,Goundamani,Senthil and Sanghavi).this film
 is indeed a hilarious one.actually Gounds is the hero of this film(he
 fights with 4 villains at a time while Ramki fights only with one).the
 film is actually a spoof on tamil films.Senthil's father is a very 
 rich man.he goes in search of Senthil by singing their family song.
 Ramki and Gounds learn the song and enter the house in place of 
 Senthil.the remaining part of the film should be watched in order to 
 enjoy.the canteen had very good sales during the song sequences(music 
 is by Vidhya sagar).
