Maatraan – Movie Review – Boring Movie

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Got a chance to see Maatraan movie, which has Surya in dual role, along with Kajal Agarwal. Maatraan is about a conjoined twins, who go through a series of life changing events.

Surya and Surya are born to a scientist-turned-businessman, who owns a top milk powder brand, which include chemicals that give temporary spurt in growth, but has disastrous long term consequences. The movie is all about how Surya uncovers the plot and punishes the bad guy – his dad!

Surya seems to have a liking towards movies with genetics. 7am Arivu was one movie with genetics and a lot of scientific explanations. Here again in Maatraan, there is genetics involved in the core plot of the movie, so I am going to call Surya, the ‘Genetics Hero’ from now on.

I dont know what is up with tamil movie directors and their affinity towards Russia. This is the third or fourth movie in tamil, that I have watched in the past few years, where the a major twist in the movie happens in Russia and our macho hero lands up there, beats all the bad guys and comes back victorious after solving the mystery.

Kajal Agarwal seems to be everywhere I look. May be I can start a Kajal Agarwal fans association as I seem to be mesmerised by her lack of acting.

The songs in the movie are nice but also very unique:

One duet song has one Surya dancing with Kajal Agarwal, while the second Surya just hangs around swimming and rowing. I have never seen a duet song before which has the hero romancing with the heroine and one more guy just hanging in there to give company 🙂 .

Another song has the words in fast forward mode, to show that it is in sync with the ballet dance that happens – as you guessed it right, it is in Russia – so it has to be a ballet and hence tamil song can have fast words to match it – see, it all makes sense when you introduce Russia into the picture.

Overall, this movie can be watched once, if you have nothing better to kill your time.

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.
