To say that this movie was heights of kodumai would be an understatement! That was the opinion amongst all of us who watched this movie.
The only things that I liked in the entire movie were the lush green fields of the village and the locations of the song that came post-interval (Yaaro?) – the green mountains and then the temple (seemed like some Karnataka temple) and its tank. I absolutely loved the beautiful combination that the green mountains and the not-so-clear blue skies with some very nice shades of blue made! The blue water from which Ravi emerges unconscious looked nice too. Now that I have raved enough about nature’s beauty, let me move on to other things in the movie.
The song that came right in the beginning was so boring. That adhu sari part in the song – thaanga mudiyala! Within minutes after that song came, another song Aazhiyile which was nice – but then the tune sounded similar to too many songs! Just when I thought the movie was finally becoming interesting when ‘Jayam’ Ravi reaches Russia, there came another song! Three songs in the first half an hour of the movie and only one of those can be classified as being good!
Even after the song, considering the story line of this movie, it could have been a gripping movie. But then it turned out to be one which was hard to sit through.
Ravi escaping from the police car and managing to remain uncaught by the police even when they were following him in a car when he was riding just a cycle (!) were all romba over. And the bullet that enters his body when he is shot by the police! All he does is pour glucose or whatever all over his face and injects himself with some medicine and then he seems to become perfectly fit enough to start running again! That’s when you remember the fact that he is a doctor – Oh yeah he is a doctor in this movie!
After a point of time, the police don’t seem to be around anywhere when Ravi and Lakshmi Rai are roaming all around the city! This happening after the police following Lakshmi Rai to find Ravi! Duh!
Lakshmi Rai – Ravi romantic angle was totally unnecessary. And then the Ravi -Kangana Ranaut love story was another boring one. She saying that a feather that is flying somewhere in the air will come and fall on her open palm (!) since she knows she will get anything if she wishes for it and the feather flying onto her hand was too much!
Waiting to know your views on the movie! 🙂
