Meaghamann Movie Review: True-blue Action, Served in Style!

Despite the obvious surplus of regional movies that tout themselves as super-hit action dhamakas, an entity called ‘a logical, racy action thriller that truly entertains’ is kind of a rarity. I would even go the distance to compare it to the unicorn as it is only rumored to exist, making it literally ‘next to impossible’ to actually find any in our commercial cinema space.

TIME Video which had a cream of some respectable movies re-christened itself to TIME SHIVA in their logo and all were curious to know what will be the outcome. Some facts like a remake from its original Telugu version elevated the  prospects of looking forward to this movie especially after Chiranjeevi’s PRATIBANDH, which really stood out amongst the trash around as another South import was making its debut.Continue reading “The cult of SHIVA.”
