I watched some movies the past couple of weeks.
Average movie. I thought Shankar went overboard and made a man one-day CM and then made him CM of the whole state, in the span of 25 minutes. K.V.Anand, does a la-Cameroon, and makes Ajmal CM in 4 minutes. :)
Good story, bad direction. Screenplay could have been more taut. In fact the bombing scene reminds me of Vantage Point. Even the set looked the same. கொஞ்சம் அளவுக்கு அதிகமா தான் ரீல் விட்டுருக்காங்க... Can watch one time.
Fantastic !! No wonder they called K.B as Iyakkunar Sigaram. I never thought highly of K.B, despite seeing many of his movies, including Sinthu Bhairavi. But Aboorva Raagagal and especially SriVidya's Ethereal acting. And is that JayaSudha ? WoW !!!
For a movie of this genre and for a director of this calibre, to come with such a movie in 1975, man, that IS remarkable.
I simply love the scene, where SriVidya says to Kamal, that Age is a factor, and Kamal says, "I do not think, that in circumstances and times such as these, Age should matter". Surprisingly, as much as our film makers have grown, we haven't let ourselves grow. +1 to the scene where Kamal asks SriVidya shyly the appropriate "praise" for his artistic skills. :P
I liked the climax in Aboorva Raagangal, especially the lengthy monologue that Major Sundarrajan gives, in the presence of his son, Daughter-in-law (or is it mother-in-law) and his wife. Well written !!
Watched Bits and pieces of ThiruVilaiyadal (the Original), and Karnan. Sivaji Sivaji thaan. :)
Varumaiyin Niram Sivappu. Yet another masterpiece !!!
