Movie Reviews on the go…

Here is a quick and short reviews of recent movies that I watched…

Thoranai
My Rating: 1/5

Thoranai
Vishal following Vijay’s footsteps in Thoranai. Iyappan, the director of this movie I believe is forced to pen down such a script for portraying Vishal as a mass hero. Oh gosh!! same old crying Geetha (Vishal’s mom) and here she is crying for her son who ran away some 20 years ago…and her second son Vishal comes to chennai in search of his bro..(Sivakasi, Vijay’s movie also had the similar script but there he goes from Chennai to his village and again Geetha was his mother.. I guess Vishal wanted everything that Vijay’s film had!!!). And two versatile actors Kishore and Prakash Raj are wasted in this movie. Prakash raj would have done 101 movies so far in such a role.. Kishore was awesome in Polladavan but here he is used as a pickle..;) I sincerely ask Prakash Raj and Kishore not to commit such movies..The movie has ‘n’ number of chasings and fight sequences..in fact they are trying to chase us out of the theaters but we understand that very lately and by that time the movie ends..Damn it!! And I forgot to mention about Shriya who is Vishal’s lady love and one notable thing here is Shriya’s portion of the movie is very much generalized..you can use it in any movie..just ctrl+c and ctrl+v and you have a romance portion ready for your movie.. All the scenes involving Shriya just stand out of the story line…Only thing that makes us sit is Sandanam’s comedy and perhaps it gets too much as he annoys all the characters around…
Overall Thoranai is a mere headache… தோரணை = ரோதனை + சோதனை + வேதனை
Nadodigal
Rating: 3/5

Nadodigal
Samuthirakani(who played an important role in Subramaniapuram) has directed this movie. Sasikumar (the director of Subramaniapuram) gets down in the field as a hero. Nadodigal is a friendship centric movie. It starts off with three friends(Sasikumar, Bharani and Vijay) in a small town, all of them in job hunt. Sasikumar is a gold medalist in History and he is in seriously in search of a Govt job so that he can marry his uncle’s daughter. Bharani trying for a job in abroad and Vijay waits for a bank load to start a computer center. Vijay also falls in love with Sasikumar’s Sister. So now the basic plot is set, here enters another close friend(Ranga as Saravanan) of Sasikumar. Sasikumar and other guys get to know that Ranga is in love with a girl(Shantini Devi as Praba) but their parents doesnt allow them to get married. Ranga’s mom is an ex-MP and Praba’s dad is a big shot in Namakkal. The three friends decide to help Ranga to get his girl. They try to abduct Praba. The kidnapping scene is a good thriller and after a painful run where all three friends get hurt badly, Ranga weds Praba and they flee to Goa. Later the couple depart due to their misunderstanding. But what hurts these three friends is they dont even realize or think of all the pains that these guys had to unite them.They again kidnap Ranga and Praba to teach them a lesson. The strength of the movie is its cast. All the characters just add on something that makes the screen play more lively and interesting. Bharani and Ganja Karupu make you laugh at many places. The two new girls in the movie Ananya and Niveditha are good finds. Niveditha who plays sasikumar’s sister is in real a girl with a speaking disability. Inspite of that she has given a great performance and her lip-sync in delivering dialogues is great. And we have Jeyaprakash (who acted as the teacher in Pasanga movie) as Praba’s dad, the big shot guy. Its good to see such talented actors being offered more opportunities. On the whole Nadodigal is worth a watch. Not so great but still a good show by all the artists and a thumbs up for Samuthirakani..

First of all I dont want to write anything here as a review. I still dont understand what make people to do such films. Vaseegaran is the director of the movie. Love vs Friendship is the basic plot of the movie. Story goes as.. Prasanna and Sandhya are very close friends which makes other people as lovers. At one point of time they reveal that they are not lovers and infact Sandhya is in love with Bala. Prasanna helps in finding the missing guy Bala when Sandhya’s parents fix her marriage with another guy. What happens in the end is the story.Its high time that Prasanna stops doing such films. He lost all his reputation that he got from Kanda Naal Mudhal and Anjaathey. I wonder what attracted him in the movie that he committed it. Sandhya irritates us as usual. And what should i write abt the villain. His hairstyle and his dialogues.. Oh My God!!! Whenever he appears on the screen, it makes you think that you are watching Lollu sabha in Vijay TV…There is nothing more that I can write here… What I have written here is more than enough for this movie. Please dont even look out the poster of this movie. You can direct your enemy to watch out this movie. You can’t imagine a better punishment!!!
