Good / Bad – Emotions are Same !!!

It’s all about the most awaited movie of the year..”Vikram Vedha” with the lead actors Madhavan (maddy) & Vijay Sethupathi. After 7 years, the director duo is back with a brilliantly written action thriller with a base line adoption of well-known childhood tales “Vikaramathithyan & Vedhalam”.   I’m a great fan of their earlier movies “Va Quarter cutting” & “Oram Poo” and this movie tops the chart among them.

It’s a visual treat to watch the on the flow brilliant and natural performances of Vijay Sethupati & Maddy. The battle here is between the minds and not the Good or Bad. The greatest thing about this movie is the screenplay. Whenever a story narrated by Vijay Sethupathi, it just kindles the curiosity in us and the final question asked by him makes everyone think of it for a prompt answer. Immediately after Maddy gives an answer…we were able to justify it and relate the story which is common for Vikram & Vedha. One can witness the brilliance of the director with these kinds of narration.

And moreover, Vijay Sethupathi’s introduction is the best ever introduction scene in the recent times and he is at his best again. Maddy’s meticulous reactions at few scenes make him one of the finest actors across film industries.

Finest casting, Unique story narration, brilliant screenplay, perfect direction, lead actors at their best, best BGM, well-framed dialogues, beautiful emotions of brothers and subtle love of a husband & Wife…what else we need from a movie.

Everybody has Vikram & Vedha as a part of them. Based on the situation, we are choosing to be Vikram or Vedha. It’s not about Hero or Villan, Good or Bad. It’s all about mind games… between Vikram-Vedha & Good-Bad. Good or Bad…Emotions are Same !!!

Ki & Ka – A Topsy Turvy thinking by Director

Ki & Ka – Hindi Feature film, yet another beautiful movie from Balki. Topsy-Turvy is the best word to describe one of the most talented directors of Indian Cinema. Different Concept, unique approach, perfect casting, soothing music, eye-catching visuals, suitable dialogs and an equalent sprinkling of humor and emotion all over the movie. If you can see all these in a single movie, then it is Dir. Balki’s creation.

Ki & Ka is a cleverly chosen sensitive subject. The plot is all about the topsy-turvy thinking of the relationship ( so-called traditional / conventional practice ). The way he handled the script was amazing. Kareena Kapor Khan & Arjun Kapoor did their best for this movie. Swaroop Sampat(Kareena’s mom) role was adorable. Though this movie has got mixed reviews both negative and neutral, I felt that Balki handled it very well by not making it as more emotional or more of an advice or preaching kind of movie. He touched most sensitive parts of the movie very lightly, as he wanted to get connected to the younger generation.He just wanted to break the perceptions  like Women has to do all the house chores and homemaking and Men have to earn and has the responsibility to protect the family. If handling and making a home is an art, then why its totally dependent on Women ?

Few other things I like in this movie are romance between Ki & Ka, Ka & Ki’s Mom relationship, Ki’s house railway and train interior ( though it looked dramatic or set kind of thing ), visuals & Ilayaraja’s background score.

Apart from the critics and reviews about this movie, I feel all men and women have to watch this movie once and this will surely bring a different perception of seeing their living style. I liked this movie very much and I will recommend it to my friends to watch it once 🙂

A journey filled with School, Crush, First Love, Friends, Booze, Fights, College, Love, Atrocity, Emotions, Acceptance, Dance, Music, Cafe, Business, Cake, Melodies, Marriage. A complete movie – PREMAM with all the above things packed perfectly and a sensational HIT in Malayalam Film industry and also in Tamil Nadu. ( Very rarely films run 100 days, but this film running beyond that with all houseful shows ).

A perfect movie for Nivin Pauly and Alphonse Puthren. Though there is no strong story line, this movie reached many hearts because it related to the reality. Each and everyone watched the movie can relate any one of the incidents from the movie to his life. Music added great value to this movie. Sabareesh’s lyrics added more flavors to the songs.BGM will take you inside the movie plot and travel till the end. The mesmerizing MALAR Miss character (Sai Pallavi) won all the hearts. Her charming smile and the Tamil slang was simply adorable.

Premam - Feel Good Movie

Special mentions for the Dance choreographed by Sai Pallavi ( Rocku Kuthu Tamil fast number), fight intro scene for Nivin in College and the BGM around that, AGAPE Cafe, Red Velvet Cake, Malar Miss Character and all the songs, Mava – Java Sir, Nivin’s Look.

Overall a feel good movie with a lot of happiness and can feel some freshness when you come out of the theater. Hats off to Alphonse Puthren for his mastermind screenplay and for this wonderful experience.

The butterfly is mentally mental so is love meaning !!! This is the conclusion given by the director ( End Card ). 🙂

Thalaivar is Back in the Game …as “Kabali”

Anything about RajiniKanth is Viral in Tamil Cinema industry. Just amazed at the response and hype coming out for Kabali ( Rajini’s Next ). No wonder he is called as “SUPER STAR” of Tamil Cinema. As a ardent fan of Thalaivar. From the day one of announcement about the movie, lot of posters designs started coming out from his fans. Each and every one is different and guys had put lot of efforts to create one (below given is the poster collage of Kabali”) and this is Thalaivar’s strength and power. No other actor in this generation or future generation will break his records in fan base and the amount of vibration he creates.

Kabali_Rajinikanth

Happy to see Thalaivar in this classic white beard and back to his trademark hairstyle. Congrats to Pa.Ranjith ( Director ) for this wonderful opportunity and good luck to make a perfect movie which should break all the hiccups of “Linga”. If everything goes well, this movie will set a new trend in Indian cinema industry for its success and box office collections.

I always love to see him on screen with his rocking natural look and character of his age. Now its a dream come true. 🙂

Page out of the life of a Gangster…!

“What is Dharma ?”
“Anything which is the need of the hour is Dharma”

With this quote of Chanakya, the movie starts. Only one and best of its kind in Tamil Cinema. “Aaranya Kandam” – Aranya Kanda / Jungle chapter as mentioned in the Ramayana ( EPIC). Its a story ( a day) revolving around the gangsters lives. Aaranya Kaandam was not a biography or history of a gangster but “a page out of the life of a gangster”. Movie revolves around a day in a set of gangsters. Before writing something I salute director “Thyagarajan Kumararaja”. Everyone says its his first movie. But I swear you will not believe it after watching the movie.

We cannot call it as a complete black movie, this is not a movie about the problems of gangsters, this not a movie about showing or portraying the dark or ugly side of gangsters. This is not the movie of big suspense’s and thrilling scenes…but every one will have a curiosity of wat is next.  Just a movie revolves around a day of gangsters and how they handle it.

Well defined characters , spontaneous and right delivery of dialogues, proper synchronization of cinematography, BG music attached with the story lines ( one cannot imagine this movie without YUVAN’s BGM ), crystal clear acting of all the characters, well matured and cultured editing, justified and unexpected climax…moreover a legendary screenplay..masterpiece direction skills…wat else to say…SIMPLY SUPERB.  Hats off to SPB Charan & team.

Five gems of this move, Jackie Shroff , Ravi krishna, Sampath Raj, Somasundaram, master vasanth. As always “Koothu patarai” has given another excellent actor “somasundaram”.  Sampath and Jackie are the best selection for this movie. Special notes on Somasundaram and kodukapilli (master vasanth). The BGM was another biggest plus to the movie. Yuvan just carries the movie in his shoulders with his extraordinary BGM. Yuvan has done his best whenever he is trusted. Really he deserves a big award this year. Still I can hear the BGM in the chasing scenes…!

Really proud to see these kind of movie in Tamil Industry. As already this movie got a international recognition and award…and this movie deserves more. A good and excellent for movie lovers and those who loves Cinema more than an entertainment. An Indian movie with a international quality in terms of cinema. Happy watching this movie…and proud too.

Just wondering …with more than 52 cuts from the Censor board..this movie still survives.   Its kind of movie u will never get irritated about gangsters and their activities….you just get involved and live the day with them.Tats the skill….TRUE SKILL of a director. The movie for Adults ends with the same note,

“What is Dharma ?”
“Anything which is the need of the hour is Dharma”

Really True one. Need of the hour is Dharma. Again thanks to SPB Charan & Kumararaja.

ps:As always perception varies from one to another…. this post just my (re)view about the tamil movie “Aaranya Kandam” and no intentions to hurt anyone or criticize.

Enthiran the MASS….!

New type of  Fever started…! Lot of expectations…lots of  predications…! Unbelievable response for the audio release…sky rocking sales in one day…! The biggest ever deal for audio rights in Indian Cinema industry. Can any actor or any movie or any director create this much hype with all genres of people?  All this due to the the MAGIC Man Rajinikanth.

With the GOD of Tamil film industry (hey guys no comparison with Kamal here..commercial success is a success when it comes to bussiness and So Rajini), with the most successful commercial director of South Indian film Industry, with GOD of  Indian film musics also  world’s one of the great musician, with the most admired beautiful women actress, with India’s best sound editor…no wonder with the magic gonna happen with Enthiran’s release. Really its gonna be a experience watching the movie.

Very eager to watch my all time superstar’s magical flick…!Watching Rajini is always like a festival. Releasing date is predicted as September 3rd of 2010. Lets wait for a historical hit of the Indian cinema.  Let this movie be a gateway for sci-fi movies in Indian cinema.

One of the best Click in my life…!

05-07-2010 one of the memorable day in my life. One of my friend took me to Enthiran (ROBO) movie shooting held in chennai. Five of us been there and had a great time in the song shoot of Enthiran Movie. We spent around two hours there.  Very happy to see my all time favorite star RajiniKanth on the shoots. With the young look makeup, he looked very handsome and active. And happy to see the most beautiful women of India Aishwarya rai.

Nice to see the amazing and costly set and all the technical unit working in the same place. As usual A.R Rahman’s music was amazing. With only two days of shooting pending, the post production works will start by this weekend. Trustable source says that the movie will be released in August 2010.

Finally we took photos with Rajinikanth and was very happy at that moment. Usually I’m not much into seeing actors and actress and taking photographs with them (except for two). But I always wanted see Rajini and to take a photograph with him. And the dream come true because of Suresh(Asst. Art Director) and Balaji.  And only actor Surya is pending..and hope very soon will meet him also.

But with Surya the meeting will be on different grounds and different platform. Anyways I’m more excited and happy to meet my all time super start and to take a Snap with him. One of the best clickz in my life.

Let’s learn and let others learn…!

Got to watch a wonderful short movie (advertisement) on the awareness of  child education. It’s a social initiative from Surya’s Agram Foundation towards the importance of education. This was a combined production of Agaram and Vijay tv. Surya also invites volunteers to work together for this noble cause.

Official site : Agaram foundation

Hats off to surya for his extrodinary works towards the betterment of our society. I have been always inspired by surya’s onscreen and offscreen activities. And his NGO Agaram foundation is special in its own way. I will reveal some interesting facts about agaram foundation in a seperate post.Happy watching….!

Seven pounds = 3.18 kilograms = 6 lifetime gifts

ps (pre script):- this post’s title has a relation to the movie. And this post has no spoilers.

Seven Pounds : Again a highly demonstrated emotional movie from Will Smith. A movie from the director of  “Pursuit of Happiness“. The movie deals with Ben Thomas (smith) wants to give a life time gift to seven strangers who really deserves it. He does all this things as atonement for the death of seven people in a car accident that he caused.The movie ends with a painful climax.

Seven Pounds - She gets the best of it..!

Seven Pounds - She gets the best of it..!

The feelings of a man who lost his most lovable things , has been beautifully portrayed. Will smith again rocks with his stupendous acting skills. He makes us feel his pain in all the scenes. Rosario Dawson(feel good beauty) plays the female lead and as one of the strangers in this movie. Wonderful performance by her. Till before the last ten minutes ..every one will be bit confused about smith’s activities all over the movie. The secrecy was maintained in a good way. The background score was really touching and penetrates into hearts. Hats off to Gabriele Muccino (director of this movie)…its really a directors movie.

I haven’t revealed the secrets(strengths) of this movie..watch it and feel it. Hope this movie will not be a commercial hit , since this has no commercial stuffs. But a wonderful movie for will smith fans and peoples who like watch emotional stuffs etc.,. Happy watching will smith …! Hope his next movie would be prequel of “I am Legend ” …The Fall of Manhattan and DC. Really it would be interesting to see..!

Whatever happens ….Life has to GO on …!

My view
Vaaranam Aayeram, best of the autobiographic kind of movie ever taken in Tamil.It’s a complete autobiography of a young man who got inspired by his father.Hats off to Surya for his marvelous performance.He was more then we expected. A film full of Surya and one should have 1000 eyes to watch him in all the frames of the movie.Surya was never displayed this much handsome.Really we should have 1000 eyes to watch him.

As guessed this movie has the traces of Tom hank’s Forrest Gump, not the whole story but the story line was inspired from Forrest Gump and style of story narration was also resembles the same.The movie just portrays the best father we have ever seen. Everyone will love to have a father like him and every old couple will really realize , how they miss their life by not expressing to each other.The old couples love and intimacy was really beautiful and well shown.The performance of father surya (Krishnan) was mind blowing.The body language, style, tone etc., etc., every thing was 100% perfect with surya.Surya along with the simran, really good to watch them as a couple.Simram made some remarkable performance , will be liked by everyone.

The young surya …was really amazing and you will wonder at his commitment for this movie. He was an energy pack.In some places you can’t believe your eyes.He shows difference in all the stages of the character. He comes as 12th student,first year student, final year student,25 year old guy,30 year old,commando,as a father of 5 year old etc., Everywhere he fits with the character and changed his complete physic.Surya’s six pack was amazing and he looks more handsome in those scenes.

When coming to romance , its simply awesome. Sameera reddy looks pretty good and we can feel the freshness in the love.The one hour with complete love scenes will take you to a different world.Sure every one will miss their loved ones while watching this.The feel of love, the bliss in the love, the real pain of love and every thing about love was displayed perfectly.When it comes to divya , its a different kind of display and makes us pretty comfortable.We can see sort of kakka kakka movie’s love.Divya looks more beautiful in this movie.

When it comes to music, the background music adds value to the movie.We can hear some sort of music everywhere in the movie.Nenjukul,Anal meale,Adiye kolluthe,yethi yethi are well picturised. Expecially ‘nenjukul peidhidum’ and ‘adiye kolluthe’ songs wins our hearts. Extraordinary dance by surya. I was mostly disappointed with the Mundinam song, the song was pictured in a different way and looks good, but for this song the expectation was more and I expected more romance in it.I was totally disappointed with this song.Hats off to thamarai for her excellent lyrics.

All over the movie we can see the Gautam’s brilliance and non masala scenes. Apart for few things , Gautam‘s job was excellent.Again he proved his ability in this movie and his way of story telling resembles English movies. And as usual lots of English dialogs in this movie.

A bit lengthy movie which runs around 3 hours.Apart from the first 20 and last 20 minutes, the move would have been a extraordinary one. Since the movie starts with sadness and ends with sadness, you may sulk when coming out of the theater.This movie is not surely for the guys who hates emotional scenes. This has lots of emotional scenes, which will create some impact with every one. We can see crazy love, romantic love, parents love n respect,lots of positive notes and few negatives too.I’m sure this movie won’t be a big hit , but its a life time movie for Surya and displays the another face of Indian cinema.Lots of things to learn and lots of things to inspire.

Since the movie revolves around the script , we can feel a slowness in the movie. I cannot say this was the best movie to Gautam, he just got to say some thing and he did it on the track.If ones likes Surya, then Vaaranam Aayeram would be a treat for them. Go with less expectations , sure u will enjoy the movie.

Totally a good movie to watch. As a whole , this movie shows and says “Whatever Happens …Life has to go on …! “.
Had good time watching this movie. It’s all just about my perception and my view (not review)on this movie and has no intention to hurt any individual.
