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 🙂
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.
MyViews – Sarvam – Tamil Movie
Got to watch this movie on its first day of release(15th may 09). I had some good expectations after seeing the trailer of the movie few months back. I Was most impressed by the camera and background score.
It’s a different try from vishnuvardan (director) but the same old story of Tamil movies. This movie would have been good if some of the cinematic scenes were avoided. Overall vishnu and arya had tried different things with our time and money.And arya tried acting in this move and he succeeded a bit…but a long way to go…!
Sarvam - Worth watching for camera and BG
But worth watching for the cinematography by Nirawshah and BG music by yuvan. The locations chosen and the way Nirav handled the colors and scenes are awesome.He makes our eyes pleasant in all the scenes. Yuvan simply touching hearts with his bg music.Few of the songs were also good. And for sometime screenplay is also good.
Bit of concentration on the first half to make it faster would have helped the movie to reach better and director totally wasted J.D chakravarthy. I’m sure this movie not gonna reach the B and C theaters. Better luck next time vishnu.
At last I felt hard to catgorize this movie. It may be a thriller , pshyco , love and comedy(non laugh) movie.
