Vellaipookal - A well-written, no-nonsense investigative thriller

Bakrid - A warm emotional drama that has its heart in the right place

There is a certain charm about simple stories, about uncomplicated emotions that are universal. Bakrid, apparently the ‘first Indian camel-based film’, functions on one such emotion: Humanity.

Gone Kesh - A predictable, yet enjoyable slice-of-life story

Debutant Qasim Khallow keeps his filmmaking straightforward, with no urgency to impress; the asides are sweet and the performances likable in this story about premature balding.
