I am not Bad. I am just Evil.

Pre-Script: This post is about my thoughts and views about a Tamil Movie and not review. Purely No intention to judge and predict others talents.

Good vs Evil…that tells the one liner of the movie “Thani Oruvan”. A script bounded movie with a strong screenplay, right into the head dialogues, perfect cast and background score (BGM).  Good to see Arvind Swamy back on screen with a lot of style factors. Elegant look, mesmerizing voice, sexy ascent etc., everything related to Arvind Swamy is awesome. Usual kind of role for Jeyam Ravi and he did his job perfect. Handsome and suited well for Cop character.  A risky movie for him as the antagonist’s character has a lot of scopes when compared to him. Nayantara’s role is short but sweet and perfect. One can simply sit and watch the screen presence of her.

Smart Villian characters ( Smart in looks and brain ) have always been a hit in Tamil Industry. This time, the whole credit goes to the character Siddharth Abhimanyu (Arvind Swamy). He tempts us to watch this movie for the second time.

Dialogues were an additional strength to this movie. Truth and depth in few dialogues added more value. Hats off to the writer and director Raja Mohan & Co-writer Subha. Casting is the bigger strength of this movie. This movie has the perfect cast in each and every role starting from Cop friends of Jeyam Ravi to co-villain characters. Haven’t expected a great BGM music from HipHop Thamiza, songs were also good. Especially lyrics in “Thani Oruvan” and “Theemai Thaan Vellum”songs are excellent.

Overall a brilliant movie with good and strong social message. It is been a big surprise, as most of us haven’t expected this kind of a brilliance from Dir.Raja. Anyways, thanks for the wonderful experience and best wishes to do more of this brilliance in future scripts. Good breakthrough movie for Jeyam Ravi and of course for Arvind Swamy.

Perks: Got to see a Facebook post from a friend with the imagination of Kamal Hasan & RajiniKanth in this movie as Good and Evil. Really a good thought and just imagining the success and reach of the movie. 🙂

Bahubali – a next level movie in Indian cinema industry.

Bahubali – India’s biggest movie, stunning sets, decent CG, good casting and screenplay best describes this movie. Really a next level movie for Indian cinema industry. More of these kind of films to be produced to showcase the history of strengths of our epics, kings and kingdoms. Wise decision from Rajamouli to release the part 2 as it created lot of expectations in the part 1. Hopefully the part2 will be much more technical and excelling in CG.

prabhas-baahubali

Excellent performances from Prabhas, Rana, Ramya krishnan, Sathyaraj (Kittappa), Nazer, Prabhakar (The Villain) took hold of this film. BGM was also excellent. Commercial songs and Tammanah’s few scenes were setback for this film. Over all a nice experience watching this movie. Long way to go to compare it with Brave heart and other hollywood movies. But still this movie has proved that we are capable of making those kind of movies if the budget permits.

Awaiting to see Anushka’s stunning performance in part 2. Great job Dir. Rajamouli and congrats for the huge collection at box office.

ps: its purely my view on the movie and no intention to judge other talents and works. 

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.

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.
