Magalir Mattum

Everyone loves a good comedy-drama, and there is hardly a better way to start the year than with a good laugh. Magalir Mattum that released in 2017 is one of the best picks you could make for this special day. Starring Jyothika, Urvashi, Bhanupriya, and Saranya Ponvannan, in the lead roles, the movie is a series of comedy of errors bound to make you laugh out loud. The story revolves around Prabha, and her relationship with her would-be mother-in-law as she decides to take them along with her childhood buddies on a trip. The movie could also be a gentle reminder for you to be daring to just let go and enjoy the year forward.


A dance-based movie, Lakshmi that released in 2018, is a must-watch for any lover of ‘feel-good’ flicks. Revolving around Lakshmi, a passionate dance enthusiast, the movie takes on a beautiful path in making us feel the urge to follow our dreams. Ditya Bhande, the young protagonist never for a second fails to amaze us with her dance moves and the energy is persistent throughout the movie. The movie, while revolving around the life of a child, is a great pick to binge-watch with your family.

Vijay is one for the masses and Mersal that released in 2017, is yet another enthralling flick from him. Starring Samantha Akkineni, Kajal Aggarwal and Nitya Menen, alongside the superstar, Mersal takes a direct approach to portray some of the bad elements present in India’s medical industry. Revolving around Maaran, a doctor and Vettri, a magician who comes together to avenge their father’s death, the movie is sure to give you the motivation needed to point fingers at all things wrong. Inspiring in all ways, Mersal is a powerful pick to start the new year.

Paris Paris 

Maybe last year wasn’t everything you hoped it would be. Well, there’s always room to turn it around and Kajal Aggarwal’s Paris Paris shows you just that. Helmed by filmmaker Ramesh Aravind, the movie is telling the inspiring tale of Parmu, an underconfident girl, and her journey from a small town in Tamil Nadu to Paris. The movie that also features Elli Avram, Vinaya Prasad and Bhargavi Narayan in significant roles, is one of the most inspiring and funny flicks you can choose to start your year to. One could derive inspiration from Parmu and her ‘never give up attitude’ to take on the new year.

We all love watching Yogi Babu and what could go wrong in a movie in which he plays the lead. Promising a laugh-filled watch, Cocktail directed by RA Vijaya Murugan is a great pick to binge-watch on this new year day. The film revolves around four close friends, who find themselves in a tricky situation. Added with a pinch of dark humour, the movie is one for the true-blue fans of comedy.
