Super Deluxe: A Tamil Gem of 2019 [Movie Analysis]

Last night, I watched non-linear drama thriller Tamil movie Super Deluxe. Its just so entertaining and a message based simultaneously. The cast of movie such as Vijay Sethupathi, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Fahadh Faasil, Ramya Krishnan etc.
Vijay Sethupathi played the role of a person, who did the sex change operation after running away from his home. The little boy, Ashwanth Ashok Kumar, who played the character of Rasukutty, the child of Manikam aka Shilpa (Vijay Sethupathi).
Super Deluxe has done full justice with this genre. Unlike some other films which has some loose end in the name of this genre. From intro to climax, Super Deluxe holds the power to make viewers stick to their seats.

Overall, Thiagaranjan Kumararaja has done a great job with the soul of this movie. From dialogues to cinematic sequences, everything is perfect. Not even a single thing about this movie makes me look away from the screen. My favorite part of the movie is Rasukutty's special style to welcome his father.

Suhana Khan's Short Film: The Grey part of Blue

Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana Khan, recently graduated from Ardingly College in London and is pursuing acting course in the United States of America.
A short film The Grey Part of Blue has been released on youtube, featuring Suhana Khan. The plot revolves around the two-day journey of a young couple as they confront the harsh reality of the real world. Suhaha Khan is playing the character of a girl who is very excited to take her boyfriend to meet her parents for the very first time. And, the boyfriend doesn't seem interested in the whole scenario.
Suhana Khan did well for character. But the real show stopper was the Robin Gonella, who played the boyfriend. Suhana's acting skills are raw in comparison of Robin Gonella's acting skills. He did full justice with his character.

Here is the short film:

Funny Movie Analysis of Gully Boy : Apna Time Kab Ayega

Gully Boy, a movie based on Indian Rap Culture, according to the makers. But according to myself, this movie, Gully Boy, is just a xeroxed version of the Rap God, Eminem's 8 mile.

Fun Fact:
Zoya Akhtar went on a trip to Hollywood. And, There she saw screenplay of 8 Mile on the Roadside, so she took it. And, on coming back from the Hollywood, Rema Kagti torn the screenplay by mistake. When she realized her mistake, she fixed those torn pieces of 8 mile with a duct tape called bollywood.
No offence, its just for fun.
Conclusion The only important part of Alia Bhatt's character Safeena is to provide Ranveer Singh's character Muraad an Ipad, so he can create some rhymes on it. Other than that, Alia Bhatt character has nothing important in the movie script. I feel like Alia Bhatt heard about this movie. Then, she called Zoya Akhtar on phone and starts crying and rolling on floor and saying I WANT TO BE LEAD ACTRESS IN THIS MOVIE. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.
The main charm and charismatic cha…
