Interestingly, the Thiruporur temple has been used in this movie. It’s a risky theme to play with temple and people’s belief in the system. Fortunately, Susi Ganesan has handled the game cleverly, convincing the audience. He easily got the possible elements of a spy/action thriller. For the first time, the director justifies the way all the gimmicks done by a hero – logic’s of flying, make-up and using intelligence. The same old characters of a Don film follows the story like CBI Director, another higher rank police officer, Villain, Villain’s secretary, club dance [ அட ..அட.. 🙂 ].
Don’t ask for logic in action movies. It’s sad that our critics also ask for a “message”, after watching the eye catching dances of Sreya [ இப்ப தான்டா புரியுது !]. I don’t want to get into the collection statistics, Vikram, Dhanu or Abirami Ramanathan [ Chennai distributor for this film ]. Because, I was disheartened to see 150 days life size flex banner for the movie ‘KURUVI‘ in Sathyam theatre [என்ன கொடுமை சரவணா இது]. I neither liked Anniyan nor Sivaji [ except Songs and Rajini ] but Susi Ganesan has definitely done a better job than Shankar. Actor Prabhu has become Tamil cinema’s sentiment as the films were hit with him doing a support role [ Billa, Ayan ]. I liked the SUVs used in the Mexico sequences [ Toyota Prado, Nissan Armada – wonderful one ]. Have you seen ‘Cadillac Escalade‘ ? That’s mine 🙂
Yes ! There are flaws in this film like Vikram’s unnecessary/forced getup(s) like the lady, old man, etc., First, I was wondering why Susi Ganesan did a small role in this film. It’s a budget reason – instead of taking an artist to Mexico, they might have felt the director can do the role 🙂 .Susi ganesan in an interview said that instead of taking the same Rowdy/Madurai /Village/Thiruvizhaa Avyinga/Ivyinga based movies, he has tried the repeated story with 30 new scenes ! Though I disagree with his statement, I can say it’s a good entertainer. The only caution is if you have grownup kids, the glamour part is too much. [ not for us 🙂 ]. For kids, I would suggest ‘ICE AGE 3’ the 3D version in Sathyam theatre.
