Jai Bhim (Prime Video)
Suriya’s Jai Bhim has been in the news ever since it premiered on Amazon Prime Video in November. This one is so hard-hitting, that it is bound to leave you hooked. A long hard look at caste discrimination, and the struggles it can bring to innocent lives. The story takes place during the 90’s, and strikingly points out how even today, nothing much has changed when it comes to the lives of the marginalized.
Jai Bhim hits it out of the park with its honest portrayal of tribals fighting the good fight, against corruption, discrimination and societal bias.
With an IMDb of 9.4, watch this one for its grit and sharp portrayal of reality, at a time when our country continues to battle caste inequalities.
Master (Prime Video)
The big ticket blockbuster which literally kick-started the ailing theatre business down South last year premiered online on Amazon Prime just two weeks after its theatrical success.
Whether in a cinema hall or your own home theatre, Master pivoted by Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi is an out and out action packed entertainer worth your time.
The film’s highlights include some superbly executed action sequences especially the climax one, with Anirudh’s aptly tuned background score and most importantly, the style and swag of the two warring Vijays.

Maanaadu (Sony LIV)
An intriguing storyline that will keep you hooked to your seats, Maanaadu is just that film. On the press conference day hosted by the Chief Minister of the state, his officers and bodyguard get stuck in a time loop.
This is one of the smartest Time-Loop Film to have been Written with a Mind-Blowing Crossover working as its USP Factor.
This one can serve as an example of how an age-old masala political story can be made interesting with new concepts like ‘time loop’.
Karnan (Prime Video)
When the maker of the incredible Pariyerum Perumal combines with Dhanush, a 2-time National Award winner for Best Actor, the audience is well within their rights to expect a masterclass.
Karnan is a story of a youth who can’t tolerate any injustice. Although this storyline has been showcased in various films.
What makes Karnan different is it’s superb execution by director Mari Selvaraj. Right from the very opening song of the movie you’ll start getting goosebumps.
This Dhanush starrer is a heavy drama that will certainly leave a lasting impact on you.
Maara (Prime Video)
Madhavan in a romantic film is everything dreams are made of. This movie is a magical story of a journey to define what love is. This one appears to be a quintessential love story but the suspense is totally worth watching.
