Joker = Depiction of Reality
19 August 2016 | by chettiyarsenthilkumarSee all my reviews

After I saw the marathi movie "Court", I kept wondering whether a tamil movie can bring out the same magic, i.e. the "court" showed the reality of our judiciary system and this movie showed the reality in politics, common man's mind set and his carelessness towards all the injustice around us. This movie might bore some people, especially the restless impatient youth of today. But you can't help it guys, this movie depicts whats real and slaps you on your face for your inability and unconcerned nature towards everything we see around us !

Keep it up Tamil cinema !
