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.


Velayudham – Movie Review – Extremely Hopeless Movie

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Just came back after Watching Velayudham at Big Cinemas here. Oh My God! The most horrible movie I have seen in a long time. I also have a few serious questions for Vijay (at the end of this blog post).

Velayudham is the masala story of a milkman trying to eradicate corruption, first unknowingly, then knowingly. This is a direct copy of Assassin’s Creed without any exceptions. The start of the movie gives a good idea of how the movie will end, but never expected the end to be the worst one I have seen in many years.

Genelia looks like a direct import from the north, with zero tamil accent – but at least her dialogues are original and she speaks exactly the way she knows it. Hansika Motwani is another heroine in this movie, who looks much bigger in size when compared to Genelia.

Vijay is introduced with just what you expect from a funny Vijay movie, without any serious story build up. The scene in the train when Vijay makes everyone eat the food cooked by his sister is the best. Santhanam comes as ‘Speed’ and is consistently excellent in the timely delivery of his dialogues. Until this point the movie is exactly what we expect from a good time pass movie.

If you are seriously thinking of watching this movie, see if you can enter into a deal with the guy at the ticket counter to sell you the ticket for half price in return for watching only till the interval – that would be the best deal you could get for this movie.

After the interval, as each scene goes, the quality of the movie goes down and down, and finally achieves the most horrible level towards the end of the movie.

Sura Movie – Total waste of time

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Watched the movie Sura and could not control myself from writing about it.

Vijay reminded me of MGR in a lot of ways – trying to leverage every single dialogue as a message to the public that he will protect them and do good for them. Even though Vijay is trying all this, I do not know of anyone having such a success as MGR had.


Villu – Boring Movie

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

Villu is a typical masala movie which has Vijay and Nayanthara in the lead role with Prabhu Deva directing it. Though this movie got released quite a while ago, I got a chance to watch it last night only.

Villu is a complicated movie, if I have to put this movie lightly, without using difficult and complex words. The story starts one way, takes a twist half way through and then takes another twist towards the end and finally ends with one more twist, thus giving a perfect roller coaster experience to the people watching the movie. Even a rocket scientist will find it difficult to understand the movie and its sequence – but I guess the story writer and the director should have a perfect understanding of the story – not me!


Vettaikaran – Movie Review

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Vettaikaran is Vijay’s latest movie, released yesterday. We went for Vettaikaran at Big Cinemas on Oak Tree Road in New Jersey last night as it is a long time since we watched a movie in the US. (I think the last one was Aegan).

Vettaikaran is released by Sun Pictures with Kalanidhi Maran’s name generating quite a cheer in the theatre. I am seeing a Vijay movie after a long time. I got a feeling that there were quite a few punch dialogues this time, actually there were at least two or three in each scene that Vijay shows up in.
