Recent Movies

Wow! These are adding up fast. Some time, I should count the movies listed in this blog and multiply them by 2 (hours). Gulp!

The Hurt Locker:
I should say this is overrated. It is taut and intense, but really doesn't say anything. War is a drug, definitely, but not every one is on it. Besides, you guys really shouldn't be in Iraq.

Very well made movie. You end up getting soaked dripping in emotions, but still doesn't feel overwhelming. I guess that is to the directors credit - who also directs a lot of directors in this movie!

angAdi theru | அங்காடி தெரு:
The movie starts with a lie - "All incidents and characters in this movie are  fictitious". That's about the only negative aspect in this movie. I guess some exaggeration for movie's sake is inevitable, but seriously - is this what is going on in the shop in question? Our Government, the police and eventually all people in the city are spineless. The ending was touching!

thamizhselvan | தமிழ்ச்செல்வன்:
One of the more sensible movies of Vijaykanth. But it flopped! Guess it tells a lot about audience - then what's the use blaming the actors alone for dishing out senseless stuff? Bharathiraja's experience in the screenplay shows. Music was a big letdown :-(

pErarasu | பேரரசு:
No, not becoming pro-Vijaykanth, but another decent movie :). Watched this on TV some time back. But seriously, BGM shouting "man of the match" as VK walks is a bit too much for anyone! The man can act sensibly - if only he showed that discretion in selecting the plots he stars in!?!

Has a very original and intense thread. But unfortunately, the script needs more supporting material. The movie runs too long and some of the scary scenes get plain monotonous. I think it would have been awesome for a one hour movie. It's one hour too long! You should credit the attempt though.
