Thuppakki – Movie Review – Amazing Movie

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Got a chance to see Thuppakki, the latest action thriller movie starring Vijay and Kajal Agarwal. Excellent movie – it is a long time since I have seen such a good action packed tamil movie. Reminded me of the Bourne movie series in English.

Vijay is the hero of this movie and has dominated this action packed thriller. Vijay has improved his acting skills by many folds and it is quite obvious that the race for the top in Tamil film industry now is between Surya and Vijay – it is not me, but their market rate (upwards of 15 crores per movie) that decides it. With zero obscene comments in the movie, Vijay has also made it easy for the entire family to enjoy this movie. Especially the jokes he shares with Jayaram and Sathyan. My favourite is the line where Vijay has a terrorist locked up in one cupboard and his girl friend hiding in another – at that point, Sathyan says ‘Do you ever use your cupboards for what it is supposed to be used for ?’ 🙂

Director A.R.Murugadoss, Vijay and the rest of the crew have shown that with the right amount of investment from the producers and the right team on the movie, Indian film industry can create action thrillers that can match any good action movie in English.


Aadhavan at Satyam

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

I got a chance to watch Surya’s latest movie, Aadhavan at Satyam theatre in Chennai. As I have not been to Satyam theatre in almost 10 years, and I have heard quite a lot about the changes made to these theatres in the past five years, I was looking forward to it.

Satyam theatre now has six screens and has made good changes to the place – except one – which I will disclose before the end of this post.

Surya plays the role of Aadhavan in this movie, as a sharp shooter who is on the rise in the mafia industry. He is given an assignment to shoot a judge, where he misses the target and then takes upon himself to personally finish the job. This is when Nayanthara comes into the picture as one of the members of the huge family that the judge has. This family goes to a vacation house and Surya gets in as a relative of Vadivelu, who is a cook there.

The story builds up, as expected – if you have been regularly watching tamil movies, we have seen this story in many many movies before – a guy entering a family with an intention, falling in love with a pretty girl in the family, ends up protecting the family. This plot has a slight twist towards the end which is a smart one.
