By Rinku Gupta Its no easy task to remake Vicky Donor, (a Hindi film based on sperm donation), in Tamil, fitting it in with local sensibilities. But debut director Krishna Marimuthu manages to pull it off very successfully,  aided by a superbly handpicked cast, loads of dignity and oodles of understated class. Fertility expert Dr Kannadasan ( Vivekh in a brilliant performance) is ecstatic when he runs into the perfect potential but reluctant sperm donor , Prabhu ( Harish Kalyan in a career best act). When every effort to convince him fails, things look up when a personal issue helps Prabhu take up Kannadasan's suggestion and he agrees to be the donor who would help couples fulfil their  dream of becoming parents. But when he decides to marry and his wife ( Tanya Hope in a controlled, poised and dignified performance) learns of this,  along with his mom ( Anupama perfectly cast)  and grandmother ( Sachu in a delightful act), his life begins to go haywire. What happens next?


By Rinku Gupta JSB Studios' Asura Guru stars Vikram Prabhu as Shakti, a tech savvy thief who has a problem. Whenever he sees oe hears about large amounts of money, he has to fight an urge to somehow steal the money. But he doesnt spend any of, instead he stacks it in a secret room in his studio apartment. Only his friend ( played by Jagan) knows the childhood trauma that causes this kleptomania. Diya( Mahima Nambiar) is a hired , smart detective who is the only one who manages to get to this thief. The cops are hot on his trail, as are dons from whom he has stolen. What is the reason behind Shakti's behaviour? Will he get away from those on his trail? Director Rajdheep has got a goos star cast in place who do their bit earnestly. Mahima does a good job as the feisty, intelligent detective ( Rajdheep deserves credit for giving the heroine a real and unconventional job and a major contributor to the story). Vikram Prabhu does well in the emotional, and action scenes. Jagan
