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. 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.

Already the music rockz…! Thanks to A.R.Rahman. 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.

Ravanan – The visual Treat…!

Another awesome (visual) treat from the India’s most lovable & talented director. A old story with slight changes for cinema, with a effort less script, having base in cinematography , music and actors…this could be the best thing I can say about Raavanan movie(Tamil).

Mani knows how to get best out of actors. Vikram lived as Veera (amazing acting), wat an performance. Vikram was the  best selection for this character(veera). In the second half of the movie Aishwarya also shares the acting. Prithivi as a handsome cop did his job well, Fits best with the role.  The major advantage for the movie is camera and music. Santosh Sivan , mani combination never failed. And hats off to RAHMAN for the songs and BG  score. I could say the climax fighting scene in floating bridge was one among the best CG & VFX done in Indian film industry.

I wonder about the location comes around the film.  A little bit faster first half of the movie would be a added advantage. Anyways , from beginning till end I loved the movie. Please watch the movie in theaters with good sound systems, sure it will be like a treat for ears. Every time Mani’s movie create a impact , even we are out of the theater, but his time I miss it. But nothing wrong in it, this is also a kind of narration.  Gonna watch the hindi version also ( avid to see junior bachan’s performance) .

For sure  Raavanan won’t be a hit in B and C theaters , will make some decent mark in A centers. But still for movie lovers, this will be a treat. For the new generation kids, a new way of story telling about RAMAYANAM (Ashokavanam episode).Happy watching Raavanan.

ps:- The above content was just my view on the Movie Ravanan and no intention to hurt or justify any one’s creation and talent.

It’s all about Just Living and Better Living.

Its all about the life of the teens in the society (lives under the poverty line, lives in the remote parts of the state)…its all about their so called life in the so called profession. They earn few thousands (average 3K) every month by loosing everything they have. Its all about the people we watch as a sales person in the famous shops of  chennai’s most crowded area T-Nagar, Purasaivakkam etc., Its all about the managing capability of the owners came from south India called as Annachi…!

Angadi Theru – Again a heart touching(hitting) movie from the director Vasanthabalan. A heavy touch emotional flick with some raw truths unfolded. Yet another worst part of the society was cleanly displayed. Perfect castings…reality in camera…decent music…two hearth touching songs…and lots of emotional bombs.  Together its a good movie for those enjoy watching all kind of movies. For all the weak hearted persons and highly emotional persons…I will not suggest this movie. Sure this will create a impact on every one who had been to the famous shops (S.S. , J.T., T.I., etc.,) in T-Nagar, and famous veg south Indian restaurant(SB) in India. In the name of money everyone is cheated here…both the customers and employees. Hats off to the director for a perfect movie.

Apart from the movie…have you ever watched these peoples and their lifestyle. Lot of times I wondered at them..for a very minimal salary..they work around 10 to 12 hours a day…very hard working hours with no rest. With all the pressures and problems….we can see a smile and eager in everyone’s face…I have noticed this lot of time. I have seen lot of so called high profiled software engineers, often fed up about their  life. I’m not here to compare ..but still a thing to be learnt from these hard workers. The only things is few earn for BETTER LIVING  and most earn for just LIVING. This should change vice versa…!

LIFE is a term meant for everyone….and so for these peoples also.Nothing should be taken for granted….hope the things will change one day. I will make sure I will also be a part in this change and I am.

A festival beyond religions…!

Happy festival of lights and sounds. Wish the smiles and happiness of this day should continue forever.

Planned to spend my whole day with the little wonders and booked tickets for the movie “AADHAVAN”.  Wanted to watch this movie on its first day and managed to get tickets. Will come with a review soon…!

Have a safe and happy Diwali
