    A Tamil Thriller/Action movie, released on 5th September 2020. Directed by Mohana Krishna Indraganti and available to watch on Amazon Prime Video. The film has brilliant action sequences, the action choreography is neat. The songs were all very good and placed accordingly without hindering the pace. V is a must-watch for those who enjoy raw, this isn’t really a family-friendly film because some scenes of violence are extreme and definitely couldn’t have escaped the censor board’s scissors if released theatrically. It’s strictly not for kids, but for adults with a knack for brutal action and puzzling twists. 

    1. 118 

    An Action/Romance movie was released on 1st March 2019, directed by K.V. Guhan and is available to watch on Disney+ Hotstar. This movie got a rating of 6.6 out of 10. Gautam (Kalyan Ram) ECTV investigate a reporter who leads a challenging professional life and personal life by getting engaged to his lady love Megha (Shalini Pandey), however experiences nightmares whenever he stays in the room no 118 in Paradise Resort, Hyderabad. Kalyan Ram tried his best to attract the role of an investigative journalist. However, he came with similar routine expressions and emotions. His body language too remained the same. Shalini Pandey looked chubby and bubbly and at times have glamour treat in sarees. Nivetha Thomas got a key role but not much to speak about it. Nassar looked like a buffoon in the role of a doctor. 

    1. Taxiwala 

    Taxiwala, a Thriller/Horror movie, was released on 17th November 2018. Directed by Rahul Snakrityan, available to watch on Disney+ Hotstar. Vijay essayed his role perfectly as a cab driver with good emotions and comic timing and has a charm that feels perfect for the character. Priyanka was good, though she had a small role in the movie, looks talented to go very far ahead in TFI. Uttej and Shiju played the negative roles pretty well in limited screen presence. The story is about the car possessed by a spirit who tries to gain Its revenge on the people who led to the death of his mother. The first half was decent with some comedy though the movie starts slowly, it’s the interval that lets you feel good about the movie and packs a punch. And the second half is a bit dragging with the unconvincing emotional background which is like old wine in a new bottle. 

    1. Dhruva 

    Dhruva, an Action/Thriller, released on 9th December 2016, directed by Surender Reddy. The story of this movie is incredible and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The acting by the cast was great overall, the story of this movie revolves around the committed police officer. It also revolves around corruption and how the powerful businessman uses power to control the life of the commoner indirectly. 

    1. Bhaagamthie 

    A Horror/Action movie, released on 26th January 2018. This movie was directed by S. Thaman, got a rating of 7.1 out of 10 on IMDB.

    1. RED 

    This movie is available on Netflix and was released in January last year (2021). This movie got a rating of 6.6 out of 10 on IMDB and is directed by Kishore Tirumala. Ram does a superb job and, in this film, he plays a double role. The variations in both the characters have nicely been showcased by the star hero. Malavika Sharma looks pretty but she does not have much to do in the film. Nivetha Pethuraj plays a police officer and she does a decent job. Newcomer Amritha Aiyer gets small but a good character. Her role is the best among the three heroines. Satya gets funny one-liners and he entertains here and there. Pavitra Lokesh appears in an interesting character that was left midway. Sampath Raj and Sonia Agarwal made their presence felt among others. 

    1. Wild Dog 

    Wild Dog, an Action/Thriller, released on 2nd April 2021. The director of this movie is Abhishor Solomon. Nagarjuna played an action-packed role and he steals the show with his one-man show. He is outstanding in action sequences. His character has been showcased in a realistic manner and Nag does quite well in this setup. Dia Mirza makes a brief appearance and she delivers a fine performance. Saiyami Kher is good and she performs particularly well in action sequences. Ali Reza, Prakash Sudharshan, and Appaji deliver excellent performances. This movie looks gorgeous from starting to ending with a twist at the end. Though this movie is based on real incidents, it is created fairly and straight up to the point.
