The epic Tamil novel by Kalki is adapted as Ponniyin Selvan: Part One by filmmaker Mani Ratnam. Perhaps only RRR and KGF2 among the Indian movies produced in 2022 received the kind of outrageous excitement that surrounded Mani Ratnam’s “Ponniyin Selvan I”. Many icons, including MGR and Kamal Hassan, have tried to reproduce the masterpiece on screen, but it required a visionary of Mani Ratnam’s stature to eventually bring the concept to perfection. The master filmmaker weaves his magic wand to produce an incredibly pleasant period extravaganza, albeit with its fair share of minor bumps and imperfections, supported by an ensemble cast and an amazing technical staff.The good part about this movie is one does not have to have read the book to enjoy it!

IMDb Rating: 8.0/10

The plot’s setup is well-thought-out, the character introductions are eye-catching enough to stand out, and the film only grows larger, bolder, and better as it goes along, according to S. S. Rajamouli, who also wrote and directed the movie. It’s evident from the start of the action sequence that Rajamouli is trying for maximalist entertainment, but what’s more fascinating is how he makes sure the basic elements of the plot are covered before focusing entirely on the extravagant set pieces.

4. K.G.F: Chapter 2

Genre: Action/Drama

Release date:  14 April 2022

Language: Kannada

Starring: Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, Prakash Raj, Archana Jois

IMDb Rating: 8.4/10

KGF Chapter 2 has a bigger, bolder, better, and more densely packed storyline and dialogue that arouses emotions. The movie not only exceeds expectations in terms of script and production excellence, but it also creates a standard that is unmatched by anything that has come before. The soundtrack is fantastic and helps with timing the correct emotions to be expressed, especially when it switches between soundtracks for the mother-son memories and violent action moments. Action sequences are just as good as or better than the prequel. One of the best action movies ever produced in Indian cinema.

5. 777 Charlie

The plot of the film centers on Dharma, a misanthrope and obsessive loner who appears to be heading in the direction of self-destruction. Charlie, the adorable escaped dog, enters his life, and the remainder of the tale describes how their first tense connection develops into an affectionate lifetime bond. With his nuanced performance in the second half’s emotionally intense moments, Rakshit Shetty kills it as the melancholy, severely injured Dharma.
