A love brings to light the soft-natured characteristic features that lie buried in the sub-conscious mind of a seemingly hard-core student. Some unexpected tragic events mould his life into an epic-like story!
Anniyan is about Ramanujam alias Ambi who suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder. Ambi (a lawyer), Remo(a suave supermodel) and Anniyan (a vigilante who wreaks havoc on people who cheat, loots or conned Ambi).
Ace conman Gandhi effortlessly thinks up schemes to swindle gullible and greedy folks. However on a rare occasion, things don't go according to plan and he ends up in the clutches of a ruthless gang who demand schemes from him for money.
An aspiring director targets a ruthless gangster for making a violent gangster film. His discreet attempts to research the gangster fail miserably. Finally when he gets caught snooping, the tables are turned on him.
Recently when I watched this movie, I was spell bound. So perfect was the histrionic talent of the great thespian chevalier Sivaji. Interestingly when I watched this movie as a kid , almost everyone came down heavily on this movie. Sivaji's acting was dubbed as loud and garish and termed as 'overacting'. I shared that opinion too as I was a kid and knew nothing better.
Sivaji plays double role in this movie as uncle and nephew. One is the egoist atheist uncle and the other the humble, god fearing nephew. Both are lawyers and the movie has some dramatic turns. Right from the first frame of the movie until the very end Sivaji delivers. No words to describe his talent. The nine stars of this movie are for Sivaji and Sivaji alone. This movie is an instructive lesson in acting. Some of the songs are quite tuneful and apt to the scene.
Absolutely enjoyable !
