Movie Review: Kaavalan (14 Jan 2011)

Vijay FAILS again...

Not sure why media markets it as a "Good Family Entertainer".  I personally pity Vijay for making another flop.  The regular expectataion of a good songs/dance is missing in this film.
"VIJAY" peyaril mattume.!!!

Movie Review: Aadugalam (14 Jan 2011)

1st half is racy and excellent.  2nd half drags and climax is not impressive.  Songs are perfect fit to sequence and especially in a "otra kannal yen usura..." Dhanush dance is so natural & loveable.  Technically in all aspects excellent work by the entire team.  Background music is plus for movie drive, particularly in cock fight & hunt for kill. Vetrimaran, Dhanush, GV Prakash & Kishore did their very best and kudos to the team. 

Good & watchable once.

Movie Review: Siruthai (14 Jan 2011)

"Singam" alavukku seeralainnaalum "Siruthai" satisfies with minimum guaranteed commercial items. Karthi performed well in dual role, with decent variations.  Especially in introduction fight scene of DSP Rathinavel Pandian, he steps like CHEETAH.. hats off to Karthi.  Last 30mins is entertaining and fast. Sathanam did his best and rocking through out the film.

Good thing is though the story is baselined in AP (Andhra Pradesh), dialouges were in pakka Tamil which avoids exasperation. 

Film lacks brightness/colorfulness, not sure due to lighting or print quality.  This gives a feel that watching old movie.

Over all good entertainer.

Movie Review: Manmadhan Ambu (23 Dec 2010)

Simple story line but well taken.  Climax is horrible.  "Neelavaanam" song lip sync and the reverse shots... "Hats off" to Kamal.  All songs are picturised well.  One big drawback is "Live Recording of dialogues", in most places could not follow.  As usual 2 types of audience for this (kamal) movie, out of which one type will not enjoy it. Bar scene - drunkenmonk chat is enjoyable (Madhavan + Sreeman).. CITIZENs will love this piece.

+ ve:
* No duet for Kamal & Madhavan
* No kiss/hug scene
* Songs are well placed per the movie flow
* Sensible dialogue (like Zip in Girls blouse & Gent's pants are just for COMFORT)

- ve:
* Live recording (in important scenes)
* Climax
* Some place dialogue sequence is lengthy, so bit difficult to follow it up. 

TO DO: Go with no big expectation and enjoy the hours.

Movie Review: Easan (17 Dec 2010)

Known/seen usual revenge story with crime and thriller.  2nd half must have trimmed.  Flashback slow down the movie a LOT.   Camera work and Background Music is good. 
Casting was good: Samudhrakani (as Asst Commissioner of Police), AL Alagappan (as Minister), Nadodigal Bandha Party (as PA to Minister), Kajah Moidheen (as Commissioner) and the Killer Boy like everyone did their best in the movie.  "Jilla Vittu Jilla Vandha..." song is impressive and enjoyable with mild dance steps.  Climax is too violent and could have reduced.  Sasi's laundry list should ignore this film.

Movie Review: Nandha Lala (Dec 2010)

Not a commercial movie.  Scenes are watchable, but goes with slow temp.  No big story line.  Very goo action by Mishkin.  Ilayaraja's music is a big support for the movie's movement.  Logic is missing like how come a school going boy maitain the house with vison less grandmother & servant.  Not for all audience.

Movie Review: Tha (05 Dec 2010)

Good team, but could have done better.  Better luck next time, as this is 1st attempt.  Shanmugam & Govindan charaters are entertaining.  Music failed in many places.  Can't catch the reason for movie name "THA".  Climax was told differently and unexpected.  Very simple story, so no HIT. 

Movie Review: Nagaram (20 Nov 2010)

"Thalainagaram" re-told with twist, action and vadivel's comedy.  Hero's decission about a situation "Marriage vs Friendship" is highly IMPRACTICAL and ILLOGICAL.  Music fails.  Vadivel's intro & 100th theft comedies are good.  Heroin disappoints.  Time pass and once watchable.

Movie Review: Uthama Puthiran (08 Nov 2010)

Dhanush has to change his track, otherwise he will be no more in the industry.  Very poor screen play.  movie drags a lot.  Any director can go for a remake from other regional language, but don't know why this movie retain the nativity of the original language.  2nd half languae is "Tami-LU".  Genelia should try different role.  Another waste movie for this Diwali.

Movie Review: Va Quarter Cutting (08 Nov 2010)

Kick yilladha duplicate sarakku.  Great disappointment.  Big bore.  Not eligible to watch even in DVD.  Just forget this movie.

Movie Review: Myna (07 Nov 2010)

Simple/knwon story line, but plotted well.  2nd half accident scene pictured extremely well with good background music.  Comedy is enjoyable with story line.  Good climax (but I never like the tragedy end).  Better movie among diwali release.

Movie Review: Endhiran (01 Oct 2010)

Shankar n Rajini rocks.  Good entertainer.  Graphics are too good for tamil industry.  Villain Rajinin (Chitti Ver 2)  rocks.  Santhanam & Karunas disappoints.  Just go with no expectation (quite impossible bcos of promos...) u will enjoy the movie.  One thing I didn't get that why there was a say this film is "equal to holywood movie" !!! 
May... May.. wonder why this "May"? watch the movie to get an answer.

Movie Review: Boss (e) Baskaran (10 Sep 2010)

Another 'SMS' (Siva Manasula Sakthi).
Director Rajesh did his work well.  Don't expect too much, go for a casual watch and enjoy the movie with timing comedy throughout the movie.  Aarya & Santhanam pair works good.  Yuvan disappoints.  Nayan looks too matured, unfit for heoin any more.  Aarya's entire family casting is good and everyone acted well.  Jeeva's guest appearance is good n enjoyable.   Current trend slogan would be "NANBEN'da".

Santhanam Special Report:
1. Thanjavoorla PAYIR velayudho yillayo, yellar thalailayum MAYIR valaranum (he owns a saloon in the film and pray god for his business...)
2. Aadhaam Yevaalukkum porandha mootha payyan maadhiri yirundhukkkunnu (he teases an old man, who still write arrears along with Aaarya)
3. Mangooz Mandayan
4. LOVE'a "Alai Paayudhe Madhanva" maadhiri soldraanna "Aranmanai Kili" Raajkiran maadhiri soldiyeda? (he teases Aaarya)
5. Mudiye yillannaalum maasaa maasam vara customer da avan... avana poyi kalachitiye? (scold Aarya for disturbing his saloon business)
6. Pallu theikkaradhukku munnaadiye Paayasama ? (question to a man who ask for advance amt)
7. Onida thalayan over'a pesuraane !
8. Panni kutty yellan Punch dialogue pesudhu paaru.
9. Yenna sir binding panna book maadhiri poyi... kizhinju pona rough note maadhiri aayiteenga?
10. Bungla Naayi maadhiri thalai venchukkunnu....
& many more...

Movie Review: Bale Pandiya (06 Sep 2010)

No big message.  Title song is good and all the songs in the 1st half are good.  Vivek started again his "Karuthu Kandhasamy" role and so better someone stop him here..  Nothing much to quote about the film.

Rating: Below average

Movie Review: Naan Magaan Alla (20 Aug 2010)

Karthi did well and proves again that he fits for other than PARUTHI VEERAN face.  1st hald entertaining with timing comedies, suits well to Karthi and its enjoyable.  2nd half is full of action and over all the screenplay is good by Suseendhran.  Not sure how the director articulate MURDER SKETCH and all.. really impressive. Yuvan rocks with BG.  1 pathos song could have avoided.  No big/impressive message but good movie to watch.

Movie Review: Thillalangadi (23 Jul 2010)

Gentleman (Tamil) -> Kick (Telugu) -> Thillalangadi (Tamil)
Vadivelu rocks. Songs are watchable, especially in "Sol Pechu Kekkadha Sundariye..." song is a visual treat with multilpe Ravi & Thamanna (like Nee Kobapattal Naanum Kobapaduven.. Vijay's song).  Unrelalistic climax.  Politician n Police are not fools as projected in this movie.  
Movie expiry dt: 7 days from the date of release.

Movie Review: Raavanan (18 Jun 2010)

Mani rocks again, as usual. 1st half moves without revealing story line, then the 2nd half articulated well.  The climax is ultimate and touching.
Characterization: Vikram (as Raavanan), Prithiviraj (as Raamar), Ishwayra Roy (as Seetha), Karthik (as Hanuman) and so on...
