Irumugan is definitely a watchable action drama sci-fi thriller. A little more care would have made it a superb watching experience. The believable factors in SCI-FI movies are always a worrying factor for Tamil audience, but still there are flaws with what Anand has set to his Irumugan. Harris saves a lot of dull moment with his BGM. To me this is his best work after Thuppakki. Nayanthara or Nithya Menen does their part well nothing to rave about as ppl say.
You have bought a good meat & ingredients, you decide to make an unusual dish, in the process of cooking the dish promises to be tastier, but when you overcook it, the whole effort you put on to get ur desired one gets spoiled.
This is what exactly happend with Iraivi. The movie has very good performers as a lead stars, particularly SJ SURYAH was terrific. Karthik comes up with a concept that focuses on man- woman relationship and few thoughts on how man should treat his Iraivi (Woman). There are scenes where bobby tries hard to relate the core concept, like man - arakkan, woman - iraivi reference and his lengthy dialogues on how true love and attentions a woman he love deserves. Though it sounds drammatic it was quite thought provoking too.
There is one place where one of the 4 main Iraivi (Pooja Devariya) was shown as independent, living her own life, a spark on how an independed empowered woman should be, but i doubt if karthik was making fun of it as her life/relationship and freedom is all about just a 3 letter. ( does karthik Subbaraj wanted us to tease "Ivalothana unga empowerment? )
The other Mainithis (Anjali, Kamalini, Vadivukarasi) of this film has very little part of the three men's life, and all of them are affected emotionally mentally just because of man's hasty decisions! (Probably this is what director's ingredient), but when Karthik Subbaraj overcooks it by just focusing on the men's reckless decisions & subplots to feed such decisions, there the film become more artificial and forced towards the end, Which makes a wannabe classy film as annoying to an extent.
Iraivi - unconventional but overcooked !
Ps: This review has no views on violence, filthy words, illicit affair and cautionary no drinking and smoking label across the film.
Action Hero Biju is a realistic cop flick that shows us police officer's day to day cop life. Nivin as Biju fits into young town SI, who portrays a role of Ideal Cop a town needs. The character Biju has all the qualities a normal film goer expect from a hero "Nallavanukku Nallavan Kettavanukku Kettavan". Biju knows his power of being SI, he was never shown as superior to others anywhere, even he has some fun moments with his cops at his station. There is a moment where a pc at his station misses a wirless, when a senior questions him he never raise his voice like usually a hero does, he goes adide by his seniors. Another beautiful thing about this movie is that unlike regular cop flicks director doest not stick to one dangerous villain, like a real police the hero has to deals with all sort of cases like cheats, psycho, public nuisance, theft, political & so on. This is where the film stands out from other regular cop flicks.
Another note-worthy flick in Nivin's filmography.
Action Hero Biju - "A Ride with a Police Officer", as shown in the opening credits .
Looks like Pandiraj wants to show us Simbu's real life scenarios in a different perspective and took Idhu Namma Aalu with a known Love, breakup, marriage - formula with an uninteresting screenplay. Despite having a good chemistry between Simbu & Nayan the film falls flat, the non-stop conversation are sure to test your patience. It was Soori's one liners which saves the film for the most time.
Idhu Namma Aalu - in short
First Half - Ivan aalu yaaru? | Second Half - Simbuvum Kaipesiyum
Spoilers Ahead: KO 2 is not a "Political Thriller" as teaser or trailer or advertisement or even some critic says. Its "Revenge drama" where two key politicians characters are involved with a few politically hard hitting dialogues which has no connection to the actual plot, just to get tagged for political genre.
What went Wrong: A movie by itself is not a real one, so logic misses are fine to an extend, but in case of KO2, they crossed a limit.
*A chief minister was kidnapped, within a space of few feet distance. It was informed to in-charge police officer that it was CM's sudden decision and protocol could not be possible for it. A CM these days at-least would have a Z+ security, were such plans are not immediately approved, even if you wanted immediately they request them for another 30 Min. adhu seri idhellam director ku thevai ila Prakash raj ah kadathanum Kadathiyachu.
*There was a scene, where NSG was invited for a mission, after a it failed, Police officer Jhon Vijay shouts at NSG to leave the spot. In reality, NSG would never hear to police. NSG are high ranked security providers and they hear only to chief commando. Namma police officer ku adhu theriyadhu, get out of the site nu satham poduvar. "Makkal Rasikranga sir kai thattunga"
*Towards the end, a police officer finds a secret path to the house via a steel box which is big like a hut, in front of house. When CM was kidnapped the whole spot was checked, how they missed this box? Does the director want to give a tribute to "Kadasi Nera Police Kandupidipu"?? wait, hero thappika venama so dont check boxu
Cast: Cast department has totally failed even starts like prakash raj has no idea of what he is doing. There were no tension or mood, that a cm was kidnapped, it was like a group of students gather for a holiday trip and just chilling! The peter modulation of Jhon Vijay, Bobby's acting everything was too artificial. No idea why Bobby Shines only in Subbaraj movies
So what was good?: As mentioned above few i repeat few political dialogues was good, but that has no connection to the plot. Which will leave you confused. when bobby raises such question you would think you are gonna get something big at end, but its focus only on revenge plot and nothing else. leon music was savior at places.
When you have a good script and poor performers, the result will be mixed, we have poor script and poor performers, resulted in poor revenge drama
KO2 - They promised you to deliver a Briyani (Sequel of KO), but what they delivered is a tasteless "Thakkali Sadham" (KO2)
Theri - Partially
There are few rare films were our intellectual mind says that there is a logic issue, it has dejavu connections, it has predictable/Template zone problem, but heart says, no problem ! the movie is still good right?.. this happens only when you get entertained in right mixture.
Where it misses: The major problem that everyone would say with theri is the predictability, you can easily say what gonna happen in the next scene, when the song will come. Then comes dejavu, a couple of scenes remind you of Ghajini, some scenes reminds you of Vedalam. Additionally Atlee wanted to cover a number of social issues through one film. Few emotional connects which actually works well, sometimes looks like an overdose. The entire first half portions are really good, when everything seems to go fine, Atlee suddenly looks like misses the point, he clearly has no idea on how to end and made it hurry to end the film like bang bang and messed it up.
Theri Moments: Vijay the perfect entertainer, his screen presence and charisma over-shades the issues that Theri had. Rest of the cast have done the best of what they can. The entire first half is really good. GV Prakash's Background score is a huge asset, whenever there is a lag GV comes to fill it with his score.
Finally: With too many issues the movie still works as an Entertainer. The movie can recommended even for family audiences as it has no adultery-dialogues/ or "Mugam sulikum" scenes. If you want a good entertainer to spend your weekend 'Theri' is still a good choice.
No idea, how long these directors going to show Vijay Sethupathi as a edupdu thodupu Rowdi. Avarum rowdi thaanga avara apadiye kadanthu poga vidunga. But truth is currently he is the only hero who can do such roles with ease, a mix of both mass & comedy. Ordinary scene la kooda claps vangrar Vijay sethupathi.
The consistent performance from Vs in NRD, Sethupathi and Kakapo just proves he is one of the best Tamil actor in recent times. Madonna is a surprise she acts well. If not for the brilliant performance of VS & Madonna the movie will be definitely a disappointment.
Sana music is adequate. Brilliant lead actors performance and good music alone wont give a good product. You need a story too.
KakakaPo, VijaySethupathi kaga po ! 2.5/5
