Ganesh Ram
I think it ( my review, yes I saw it on Saturday)can be put.

First in a sentence,

Never go to a movie on a the first week of release when there is so much of hype to it.

This movie DID not stand to any expectation one would have when going to watch Mani's movie( I have made Mani Ratnam as Mani, assuming I am going to address by first name through out this piece).

First of all, the director, Mani, needs to come to terms on the baseline story on which he is going to spin his version. What I mean is, as a director with a view he should have been convinced 200% about the characters and the story he is going to spin around them. From what I saw, I think he did not.

In the movie, I could NOT see the distinctness of Mani.
Not the Mani who gave Anjali, not the one who gave us nayakan,mumbai,roja. Not even the Mani who gave us GURU.

Instead I could see the director, who wanted to do shine on his old glories instead of brining something stron and powerful.

I will chide him for the selection of actors. But for Vikram and priya mani none, no one , zilch had anything to do with acting.

We will go through the direction without revealing the story a litte later.

A paragraph or two about each actor and acting.

Viram - you should do a lot better. I did not see the vikram I saw in the RadAAn Tele movie where you had acted with Radhika shot in England. I did not see the vikram I had seen on many of the other movies. Instead I saw a main character, not a strong villian, not a strong hero either, failing to establish ground. There were no defining moment that will make this your film either, except the finale.

Aishwarya- You should stop acting. You are beautiful, fair, good for probably the western eyes looking at Indian girls. But it is just that. I did not see the aishwarya I saw from the first movie you acted, not even the one from the Ajith, mammooty starrer. Your pathos in the second one was lot more than you showed as Ragini in Ravannan. I think you should see all Jaya bachan's movies and learn how a heroine can be strong and effective, esp guddi and anamika.

Prabhu- you should stop acting in these type of roles. You are not good at these kind, you are best as a light hero or a police officer, That's it. I would say, you should see all of your dad's non-hero movies again and again and again, to see how a hero took a bold step to become a supporting actor.

Karthik- you have never acted in any movie except Gokulathil Seethai. Even there you character was beautifully supported by the heroine and the dad character. It is time you move away from movies. Your days of acting probably is done.

Prithivi Raj- mmmmhmmmmmmm.... You are best suited for the role you played in Abhiyum nAnum. You neither have the "getthu" to be in a police role nor can you fight.

There were no actors other than these to mention in this movie

Rest in Next
