The Best War Movie I Have Ever Seen!

Hacksaw Ridge – One of the best war movie I have ever seen. Mel Gibson never disappointed with his directional skills. I’m a great fan of all his 4 movies and again for this movie now. The film will never disappoint you if you like war movies. That too this is based on a true story. (Hacksaw Ridge is the true story of Private Desmond Doss, an Army medic in WWII.)

Family of a army person, situations in their house during pre and post service in army, a true love, true patriotism of youngsters, trust and love in Lord, commitment, bravery, patience, emotions & Happiness, impact of a war (on and off field), what else do we need to get from a war movie ?  This movie has everything in a right note and in a right tone. All the actors have justified their roles and CG works are excellent.

Hats off to this brave man Desmond Doss. when told he was a hero, Doss concludes, “The real heroes are buried over there.” Doss wanted to serve the nation by serving in army and he said, “While everyone else will be taking life I’ll be saving it.” & he did it.

Hope this movie will bag few Oscars this year. Lets see!!! All the best team !!!

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 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 ). 🙂

Ajith’s freaky game …Mangathaa da

Mankatha – Ajith’s freaky game. It’s like a celebration movie for ajith n his fans . Unusual ajith movie, unusual venkat Prabhu movie, unusual Tamil movie but with usual English movies story line. A colorful movie and quite a entertainer for ajith fans and those who are not looking usual venkat movie.
A brave attempt by ajith by not considering the so called image. Acting a character of his own age and own looks, giving equal space to the costars …. Ajith rocks all over the movie. The rapport between ajith n Arjun is awesome. Yuvan rocks with his high beat. Songs spreads lot of energy in this movie. Trisha adds more romantic flavors… Makes a perfect pair with ajith. JP and Arjun perfect selection for this movie. Brilliant performance.

Manly performance , stylish looks , classy moves … Nothing more to say it’s Ajith’s game. Just a celebration by and for ajith n fans . With little increased pace in the screenplay and less dramatic gun fights the movie will be liked by everyone. Might be cutting down some twenty mins will add more value. Ajith is lucky to get venkat for his 50th movie. Just for making it a ajith movie. Worth watching it for some unusual experience. A game with strictly no logic n no rules…just watch it for entertainment .

Ps: it’s just my views about the movie. There is no intention to hurt anyone.

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.

Its not about the so called culture and tradition…!

Got to watch the  Tamil movie – Vamsam in theater few days back. As  I was much impressed with the director Pandiraj’s previous movie “pasanga”, my expectations was lil bit high. And the review in Ananda vikadan – a Tamil weekly magazine also added more expectations into me.  While watching the movie I was lil bit disappointed with a usual village subject with normal stuffs. But the efforts were good and cleanly displayed. The second half of the movie is good, especially Jayaprakash and Kishore’s performance were extraordinary.

But I feel, director Pandiraj can do much more than this.I feel these kind of subjects need a good music.  But this movie failed to impress with the music. But one thing I hate with this move , not only with this movie and with all other movies is when it was about a particular caste system. Told positive or negative, but it creates impact on common people. Cinema is not only a entertainment media for most ppl, it travels beyond that. It gets into many lives and hearts an a  sensitive media too.

This generation doesn’t need the things related to caste system and the stories related to that. It will create a impact on this generation too. We don’t want to see a caste based division and discrimination again with our generation. And we need our next generation without caste system existence. I’m aware that these caste and subdivision are created with some good reason, but all the ex-generation gentlemen spoiled those values and now it is carried with different note and intention. And with the rapidly changing in the attitude of the living style , these things doesn’t mean much. So better to avoid to deal it detail in the movies.

Coming to this film Vamsam, the movie deals with a south region caste and portrayed the so called tradition and culture. The worst part is , few of my friends being a good critic , they like this movie and praised this movie blindly with no reason. I wondered why it was…then while discussing  to them in detail, I  came to know that they are from the same caste and region and they feel proud about this. I’m not finding a fault in them. Because movies is not only a entertainment , it also creates impacts. What we say culture and tradition in movies are not actually. Things were created for good cause and later it has been used for different cause.

Lets create a new caste & religion  free world for our next modern generation. Wish every director should have some social responsibility.

ps: about the movie is afterall my views and not review. Perception varies…just expressed my views.

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.
