AAYIRATHIL ORUVAN!! a take on a new genre in tamil..

I dunno what is it with me and night shows..been long since i went with my gang for a day show..yesterday it was AAYIRATHIL ORUVAN..i wondered why selva ( the director ) chose that name for the movie..also what was with the M.G.R song remixed..only when madan said that selva is a big fan of M.G.R i got the picture..you should listen to the crowd for that song..Vaathiyar still rocks..
Now gettin to the movie, it started on a weird note of a guy gone missing and a crew to search him..are archeologists given THAT kinda respect in our country?? i didn know that..then came Andrea who is the lost guy’s daughter and Reema who is a top official incharge of the mission..the boarding scene reminded of the titanic..maybe all ships are the same..Hero introdction was awesome..Karthi has got a natural humour in him and it can be seen clearly..the way he approaches the two girls with the same dialog, the whole theatre laughs..they are set off to an island off vietnam..( ya, the same place that comes in most of hollywood war movies ) its now the movie gets good with all the curves πŸ˜‰ and twists.. like most of the english adventure movies the girls wear shorts and t-shirts..Reema seems to be too comfortable showing off πŸ˜‰ and a big part of the male crowd kinda likes it obviously..Andrea doesn’t have much of acting to do but WHAT A GIRL man!! Perfect girlfriend material until she tells her story..Karthi s reaction for that is awesome..his dialog delivery rocks the theatre..the adventure begins and ppl are killed by hundreds..come on, where is the logic..you cant just go to a foreign country and kill ppl like that even if they are tribes..it was like watchin counterstrike on big screen..the movie went on for sometime and i thought it was almost over, then came the interval..WHAT now only?? the second half was totally dark and with scenes like never before seen in tamil industry..they had famine which i dont understand cuz in two days walk there is flush forest which the lead actors had crossed..why cant those tribes go for that..they dumb or somethin?? They got magic and all man..can see the future but not what is there on the other side of the island?? The CG didn look bad..was good with the dark theme of the movie, music stood out in quite a few places.. ( theatre speakers were not so good πŸ™ ) Parthiban was awesome and the make up too was great.. how is that each tribe are in different colour? ( should have searched the next island for NAVI s πŸ˜‰ blue ll do great as skin colour.. ) some scenes really showed selva s touch..the tamil used in the second half showed the kinda work involved in searchin those..few might need subtitles to understand that πŸ˜‰ ( thats the state of tamil now right?? ) some were too hard for a normal tamil viewer to digest..the heronies callin each other #@$%& was new too, so were the zombies.. The actions of the army showed harsh reality that everyone should accept..give few guys a gun and the power,the women in the place ll surely suffer..humanity is just a word these days..and selva showed it the hard way..not a movie to watch with kids and even parents.. πŸ˜‰ i still couldn’t take sides of who is good and who is bad..i go with Parthiban for the good ones IMO.. overall, a great initative by selva for touchin a genre like this, expecting something different from him next..i kinda liked it ( the last movie i watched was vettaikaran, anything i watch after that will obviously be good πŸ˜‰ ) but dunno how ll the rest of the people take it.. had one doubt at theΒ  end..if army can get into the place by helicopters so easily, then why did Reema and crew undergo such hardship and shed loads of blood to get there?? one thing is very clear..Andrea is HOT!! many wud agree with me in this!!Β Β 

VAAADAAA!!! theatre ku ullaya veliyaya??

this is one movie which created a whole lotta stir in the daily lives of tamil people.. wen sun pictures announced the movie, it was the startin point of disaster..i never wanted to watch it..tat too in theatres..i was in a great mood after watchin 3 idiots which i loved like anythin..but u dunno bout my friends..they dont plan anythin, they just do..it was the decided we were goin for the night show of vettaikaran just 2 hours before the movie starts..my mom didn allow me to take my bike..so, bala picked me up..and it was my job to convince madan’s mom to send him..the tickets were a bit costly for raki standards..10 of us guys went in..it was just us and another gang of 10 or so in the entire balcony..the movie started as usual with the mass song..then the unthinkable happened..vijay was shown as a guy who was writin 12th std for four years..tat makes him almost my age..he is first year college student..come on..what next?? i guess he is taking sathyaraj a bit more seriously.. πŸ˜‰ then the usual vijay movie stuff..comedy, heroism and all..he didn have his usual flare in dance sequence though..and the heroine..is it really anushka??, the gorgeous girl from arunthati n all.. she looked like vijay’s aunt..and in some scenes like his uncle..i mean, what happened..didn tip the make up artist well?? ( its evident in the song where vijay wears a wig..woeful..) or misunderstood the word “reality cinema” as movie without makeup ?? who cares..the first half was like totally noisy with a bit of humour here and there..and i thought sometimes my jokes were bad πŸ˜‰ ..how come every villian shouts with the same pitch?? god, i was searchin for the volume control switch in the theatre..the second half started and my friend ajay was totally frustrated with the movie already..the worse was yet to come..oh, did i mention, two of my friends were watchin it for the second time in the same week..came due to our compulsion..i couldn’t imagine how they felt πŸ™ then it was the typical scenes only vijay can do..like beating 100 people just like that or lockin a car from underwater ( waterproof batteries πŸ˜‰ )..one song in which he transforms into a superhero ( vettaikaran πŸ˜‰ ) n all that stuff..punch dialogs were spilled all over..did i hear the applause sound in the background score?? oh, they knew we wouldn’t clap..guess they were right..then came the climax of killing the villian who became a minister in a single day..but actually a blind man does the job that vijay couldn’t..so much for logic..whatever..its way over time that vjay realised he should do somethin what to say..different is a wrong word to use here..a typical vijay movie with the same cliche scenes..its not with the hero but its directors who should change..waitin for the remake of classics like the italian job, fight club and tat kinda movies..do atleast that guys..and please no songs with a group of bright coloured dancers..wonder how’ll the people watchin the shooting in foreign locations ll feel bout us..aal izz well..

a land of 1000 movies..

yeah, m talkin bout my country India..we hav a lotta woods here to make movies..( vry less to make oxygen though.. πŸ™ ) there is kollywood,tollywood, malluwood (?), the dominant bollywood and other smaller ones like bhojpuri etc..we ve been making movies for more than 75 yrs and with the exception of a few here and there we can categorize all the movies under one topic..seasonal cliche ( i dunno how to type that end e with a horn with my keyboard..but i know u get the picture.. ) i hav a few doubts bout all the movies..i’m asking it here so that someone would answer me..
first of all, wats with the “wood” in the name?..thr is one place called hollywood where they make english movies, that doesn’t mean all shud end with a wood..
my second question is whats with the seasonal stories?? if one movie is declared a hit a dozen other movies follow suit with the same theme and a small change in script..ah, come on if u wanna copy, copy ur own script..make a sequel of ur own movie..part2 works most of the time, if not take a part3.. πŸ˜‰
next is, why shud the hero always win?? even if he is a bad guy and kill a dozen people..also tat if one guy in a hero s family dies, its shown as somethin huge and the hero goes to the villian’s lair and challenges him..while doin so he kills a lot of thugs..do they don hav family?? what bout them?? why are the movies always around one guy who is just another normal guy but beats up ten ppl with a single movement..the funny part is a hero worked out and showed six pack abs in a movie which hardly had fight scenes.. πŸ˜‰ i say, if u wanna show a hero beat up everyone make him a superhero..we audience ll accept that..
last question..why is it, if a movie is declared hit in one language, it s remade in another language again with the same dialogus and the same scenes..the original with a subtitle hav pretty much done the job i guess.. πŸ™‚
anyways thats the way it works and if any1 readin this post knew the anwers for what i asked, do reply cuz there are a whole lot like me with the same thing in mind..

naan kadavul..

i was thinkin bout goin to tis movie for a long time like i usually do b4 the launch of any big movie but mostly end up not watching it..but tis time its not so..i have watched it nd yeah,on the first day of screening.. πŸ™‚ i’m not gonna say the story here..its gonna be like..the first reaction of a fan..to say in a word, the movie was out of the world..i went wit a friend of mine..we were jus talkin b4 the start of the movie nd he asked me if there ll be comedy nd an item number in the movie.. πŸ˜‰ i just laughed cuz we know how bala s movies ll be..but believe me, both of it were there in the movie..U hav to see the movie to understand what i mean..this is not like any other regular tamil movie where a hero ll take on a dangerous villan who ll try to take over the world..( ya,i 4got..he ll have a gorgeous daughter who ll fall in love with the hero at first sight or a bit later..but eventually tat ll happen πŸ˜‰ ) i went in, expecting tat most of the movie ll be shot around the sacred city of kasi..but the answer is no..its jus a 10-20 min in the first half, the rest is in the native of the hero,here in tamilnadu..the kasi scenes were really good nd showed the true flavour of the city..the story has a group of disabled beggars involved nd their leader is involved in human trafficing..man,bala has sprinkled comedy even in tat kinda situation where in normal cases they keep on whining bout their situation..dialogues even though less ll surely make u laugh nd also think bout at certain places..few dialogs may be a bit too much for some ppl but in that situation it just fits perfectly..bala s touch is everywhere..arya nd puja..well,no words to describe their acting..both hav worked their best nd the hard work can be clearly seen in the movie..the king (ilaya raja..) is as perfect as always nd the music just blends to the visual..the casting is so perfect nd everybody have lived their character..a spl mention to the muruga character..man, i ve just seen him doing comedies with vadivelu but never expected this outta him..he has been a revelation..way to go ..(attention all heros..here the villan sports a six pack nd his work out video is not a part of the movie.. πŸ˜‰ )every single detail has been worked upon well n hopefully even if bala directs less movies in the future i want somethin like this or even a better one..the bottom line of the movie is jus a single line..EVERYTHING IS BETTER LEFT UNDISTURBED..TAT INCLUDES PEOPLE TOO..
