Dasavatharam

The verdict would've been out already. Irunthalum blog sambradhaya muraipadi.."Dasavataram" review @gils..Engathukaranum kutchery poituvantha kuraiya saturday anniki naangalum paathomula.

Oray varila solanumna...This is one movie which definitely needs a second viewing. It has so many flaws you cant cover them all in one sitting. Kamals list of Magnum Flopus gets one more addition and the budget for each passing movie, indiavoda inflation kanakaa egirikitay poguthu. One cant blame the over hype and delayed release alone for such mega disappointment. However much Kamal tries to fill the movie, with gimmick-a-minute, the much needed story is nowhere. Oscar aspirations kedakatum..padathoda kambeni namela iruntha oscarukay aapaidichay..intha mathiri mokka padam eduthathku case poadama vitanungalynu santhosha patuka vendi thaan..

Avlo mosamava padam irukunu yosicha..well..3 mani nera padathula it does have some good moments. Aana Prudential cup adicha indian team adutha WC victorykaga thedikitu thiriyara mathiri such scenes are very few and far between. Seri..kathaiku varuvom..well.athaan ilainu aidichay..padathuku varuvom.

Vadivelu solra mathiri..openinglam nalla than iruku..aana athukaprum than...first kamala vara antha 12th century kamal..ULTIMATE. PKSla vara mathiri tharailenthu jump adichi vara shotukaga speciala oru whistle udlam. Enakenamo antha 12th century storya matum full blowna eduthiruntha..it might have justified its oscar billing. Semma moving portrayal. Namachivaya sollungarapo..adi thondailenthu Om namo narayanaaanu song aarambikarathu apdiye meisilirka vachalum.. FREEEEEEEDOMnu ithuku munadiye MelGibson Braveheartla kathitathala oru second prize winning performancea thaan theriyuthu.

Opening song venumna ipdi maathi poatukalam..

"Kutram mattum paarthaal kathaiye irukaathu
Kathaiyai mattum paarthal onnum puriathu"

Asin..avvvvvvv...Gajini continuity miss aagama pathukaranga. Enna.. antha padathula villain mandaila adichi konuduvan..intha padathula ivangalay thalaiya kallula muttindu sethuranga. The best shot portions of the movie comes to an end with that.
Hollywood style..ulagatharam..blah blah..blah blah. hmm...ipdi solliye emathitanga. Adutha vara scenalam patha..sathiyama kamal padam thaananu nambavay mudila..avlo mokka. Ithelam eduka america poirukavay venam. Annanagaro Amenjikaraiyo entha edama irunthalum it wudnt have made any difference. Unbelievably shoddy screenplay. 10 getup kathaingara oneliner vachikitu atha suthi poova pinnirukanga..namma kaathu avlo poo thaangathungo.

To the much hyped getups..well..getup poatutu vara kamal's'a vida..first vara Nambi Kamala nambi inoru padam edukalam. Topclass. Atha vida top..naiduva vara kamal..Telgus pathi nakkal adikarthuna kamaluku thokkunu nenakren :) the way he stresses on Beeeyesssee Yemmessseee..athulenthu aarambikara nakkal...wow..chancela. Terminator mathiri vara kamal intro semma stylish and oru purposeoda vara mathiri katirunthalum..poga poga..local B grade villain mari heroinea pudichi vachikitu meratara alavuku sothapitanga. George bush getup and japankaran getupla sathiyama athu kamalnu nambavaymudila. Ivlo menaketu getup poatathuku vera araachum poatay senjirukalam. Wouldnt have made any difference. Innoru point makkal enna solranganna..maavu appina mathiri mugam bloat aagi pala layer form agidrathala..differenta getup poata entha rolelayum expressionay illainu pheelings..kamal kita expression kaatalainu kutham sollakudiya oray padam ithuva than irukum nenakren. Paati ya vara kamal and vincent poovaragan...avvvv.. body language and dialect masteryla ulaga nayagana adichika aalay illa. Annachinga mathiri tamizh pesara flowla mei maranthu paaka thaan mudiyuthu..enna pesaranganu puriathukula scene poidthu. ethukaga antha pathau adi usara afghan role?? pathunu oru numbera vachikitu padaatha paadu patrukangapa..Antha punjabi singha vara kamaloda cancera bulletala suttu cure panrathu..kaakka vada thookitu pora kathaiya vida mokka..sorry sire..sathiyama unga padathula ivlo mokkaiyana scene expect panala.

Ellathaiyum kuda seri..masala movie..ithula logic paaka kudathunu vitralam. Aana..thanaku kadavul nambikkai ilaingara reasonukaga..mathavanga nambikaiaya thooki poatu midichirukarathu mannika mudiyatha kutram. In the name of criticising superstition he has went overhead this time and the way in which he has played with the idol of the deity in procession is something which might surely bring lot of criticism. Porakuraiku Asin vera..first halfla avanga pesara dialect semma "kaamedia" irukunna second halfla kaadhula ratham varuthu..Intha kosuva yarachum marunthadichi kolungadanu solra alavuku padutharaangapa.

Top kodumai ennana firstlayum endinglayum vara antha stadium scene...santhadi sakula amma/aiya elariyum ullara sethuraru...kadisila ulaganayagan patuku george bush aaddrathu overooo over. Aana ethukaga antha scene??!! hmm apdi paatha padathula paathi scene puriayavay matenguthu.

Plus points of moviena..well obviously Kamaloda acting as naidu/poovaragan/nambi/terminator (in bits)/paati..micha characterlam..so and so thaan..but body language and dialogue delivery..wow..chancela..
Camera work..stunts..lighting..background music..set..ithelam rasikanumna vera vazhiye ila...inoru thaba kandipa paathey aganum. konja neramay vanthalum konji pesi koduruma sethu pora mallika sherawat avvvv...kodai veyil kuchi ice. mathabadi..padathula elamay negative than...kadavul iruakra ilaiyana climaxla konjam kuzhappi..mannu alrathu thappunu oru gyana ubadesam kuduthu..sivana vishnuvanu katchi katti..ithuku oodaala bio technology warfarenu mokka poatu...terminatora avatharam eduthu poga vara ella characterisyum poatu thalli...hmmm..oru stageku mela vanthutu pora charactersla ethalaam kamal?? intha scenela evlo kamal vantharnu?? thaniya oru competitionay vaikalam...kamal padamna oru standard irukum. Intha padathula athu kandipa missing.

Katta poatu nooradika aayiram per irukalam..aana nooradikravanelam sachinaga mudiyathu...Intha padam nooru naal odinalum...definitely not kamals best and definitely not a great movie. At best its a brainless masala mix of illogical sequences.

10 different roles nu etha USP a boast pannagalo... athuve has turned down back to weakness for the movie....

they are trying to fit the story with the ten different roles.. athula vera some roles doesnt have any significance to the movie... chummachukum oppukuchappani role...

definitely did not meet the expectations...

A few glitches first:
Kulothunga Cholan did not remove the idol to demolish it. It was removed from it's chidambaram shrine for rennovation. Though the true intention could be disputed, and the opposition faced was mainly due to the closing down of the temple, though temporarily.
The geographical placements are still a worry...let me see, in the Rangarajan Nambi episode, From Chidambaram, the idol and the devotee are transported via mangrove forsts (pichavaram?) to the seashore, presumably somewhere near pondi? And the Chola mandapam looks out to the sea. But then we find it well into the land when we see it the next time. 800 years is a long time but not long enough for the sea to recede miles!

The movie was good old chase movies that hollywood churns out year after year, and have assured takers at the box office
Only when it's Kamal Hassan, one tends to expect more from him, the man being the reigning doyen of good cinema
But then, relax, he also made super commercial masalas. Laying all that aside, the film moves at breakneck speed, the only dampener being a few minutes post interval (thanks to the over talkative Asin, I was wishin Kamal would slap her but nah...the lady just cant act any different, she delivers every line just the same way she did in any other movie she was in, she's turnning out to be Tamil's own Aishwarya rai, at least in the acting department)
And of the 10 (not all of them were needed really), Rangarajan Nambi stays with you, the short plot is so intense you wish they had made that into a full fledged movie rather

The make up looks so tacky and larger than life, it kinda makes the head look so bigger than the body and the face is so plastic and pale!
In fact, if the size did look right, it was perhaps on the Afgan giant
Kamal, please dont bury all those expressions under layers of maida maavu...

P.S wrote these before reading ur post, padichi paatha you have stated most of these in there!

Gils;
Reg the perumal-a thookittu odura scenes, ada, perumal-a katti kadal-a pottathu mattum sariya?
Ada viudungapa, manusam paavam, he's not definitely thinuchifying his beliefs here
The same actor plays Nambi, and the same script writer ends the movie by zooming out on the Perumal statue lying on the beach
May be we are just reading too much into it...

//A few glitches first://
sat..historically accuratea u can never make a movie..ther wil always be counterpoints and whoever shouts the loudest claim victory over the fact..so antha 12th century plota manichiralam..infact..the way he had filmed it..makes it an interesting bit..no doubt masala matter again..but pakka filmy and got gud selling point..plus acting scope...kamal atha full lengtha eduthiruntha pichi udariparungarathula no doubt..

"Kadavul illainu nan enga sonen..irunthiruntha nallarukum"//
!@&*$% waat the heck was that?? infact that surmises the feeling abt the whole movie..sat..believe me...70 kodi kudutha..ithey mokkaiya neenga inum nalla eduthirupeenga :))
Sat said…
ezhuvathu kodi koduthu iruntha naa en padam edukuren :)
thookittu en mogathula chappathi maavu make up pottutu etho oru oorla settle aayiruppen...hehehe
BTW, ast dialogue wasnt kadavul illenu sollala, irunthuruntha nalla irukum; but iruntha nalla irukkum. there's a huge difference. it was more like i dont know god's there, hope he is there! irunthiruntha would be god was expected to be there, but not there for sure. kolappitena? point is kamal is too smart to sacrifice being politically correct for a punch. he will deliver his intensions, but subtly. anyway, cinema is only expressing one's views. and if that is his view, and he wants to reach out to a similar crowd, that's not fair stopping him. perumal-a toilet varaikum thookittu poitaanga thaan, but it was rather taunting the girl that she would not mind the foul stench but wont allow a 'naicker' touching her or her idol. if you noticed that was taunting the orthodox; neither the god, nor naicker but plain poking at the shunning behaviour. he always does that!
gils said…
//kolappitena?//
