Azhagiya Thamizh Magan --> Oru Kannottam...

Banner : Swargachitra Appachan productions
Cast : Vijay & Vijay, Shreya, Santhanam, Aashish Vidyarthi, Geetha, Shayaji Shinde, Namitha matrum palar...

Direction : Bharhathan
Music : AR Rahman
Film Certification : U
My Certification : U/A

Post Certification : U

The film starts of in a highly uncharacteristic fashion with a stupid stunt sequence.. Vijay being a gud stunt hero has been wasted by the Director who has used some really crazy graphics... Next comes the 100m sprint where Vijay once again falls prey to the stupid graphic work... Well... I wont let out the spoilers for sure guys!!! The first half is a bit boring with some stupid stunt sequences but the music comes as a ear soother to everyone... Hats off to AR Rahman... Commendable dancing by Vijay in Ellapughazhum song... The Kelamai Kaiyile song which starts of with a sexy hip movement by Shreya turns out to be an eye sore because of the poor cinematography... The folklore was good... Then, the real zeal starts off in the 2nd half with the introduction of Namitha and Vijay(part 2)... The boring 1st half is completely overshadowed by the fast paced 2nd half and Vijay as a anti hero does a really good job in his acting.. Finally, Vijay has started to experiment something differently which is good for him... The scenes involving the Vijay(antihero) simply is rib-tickling as well as interesting... The ESP(Extra Sensory Perception) is quite a different concept to Tamil cinema but of course it is an idea lifted straight from Hollywood.. The cute looking girl who dies in the film is a good find... She is bound to get some good offers as child artiste in the years to come.. Then, finally, the film is a good starter to the debutant director but hope he does some homework on the graphics and editing part... He needs to be more choosy in choosing the best in editing and graphics designing... So, overall, a good commercial entertainer and is worth watching...

"+" :
* Idhaya Thalapathi, Iniya Thapathi, Ilaya Thalapathi Dr.Vijay
* Fast paced screenplay
* Stunning muzik by the God, AR Rahman

"-":
* Graphics
* Cinematography in Kelamal Kaiyile song
* Namitha

Overall, a real treat for Vijay fans and a commercial entertainer for everyone... EVVALAVO PANROM, IDHA PANNA MAATOMA ENNA??

Rating : 5/10...

P.S. I am not a Vijay fan and in fact I hate most of his films...

Coming up: Vel

"frankly my dear, i don`t give a damn"

deepa said...

hmm... namitha a minus?!!! interesting news, that is! i haven seen de movie.. how come u chose to review atm first wen vel has ASIN???
n atm's success- attribute it to de 'aalai illa oor la iluppa poo daan sarkkarai' logic!!

vinod said...

Well i guess that rating is actually more for it. Most of his movies are not good. Well he is a mass hero and this movie too will run packed houses like other movies.

Dogastray said...

movie sucked !! stunts made people blind and forget the laws of gravity... guess with the gravity levels .. vijay might be peeing on himself...

the second part went well .. cant take away the credit from him .. did well

Aravindh said...

nothin is gud in this movie except music n dance.. waste of money.. I simply can't believe how Vijay accepted to act in a movie like this...

wersp said...

Sundar said...

"the real zeal starts off in the 2nd half with the introduction of Namitha and Vijay(part 2)..."

AiShU said...

Santhosh kumar.S said...

I think this film may be different from other films of vijay.....but it is also a remake....

harish said...

pinna enna...aandha director peter jackson range ka aadukamudium... he z a local director so the film goes in a local way i think..

rajkingme said...

Screen play is not that much fast...

Then y you are seeing the cinematography of that song kelamal.. see shreya alone not theback ground... the kiss n all are plus points of the song... take pluses leave minuses....

Ponnarasi Kothandaraman said...

:) Nice review..Professional touch irunthuchu! Good job!

Saw ur scrap in my page, Raja's classmate?

Jeevan said...

Good review Vijay. I feel the beautiful songs by AR were not pictured properly, for Valayapatti thavilea I expect a classic touch… but they wasted with thappankutu style. Shreya was too much glamour in songs ;) but not looking gorgeous.

Let see how our views go through vel, in coming days.
