WORST commercial garbage EVER!
16 February 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Save yourself the trouble of watching this film, if you can, seriously! Wasted 20 bucks on this film. Even Saran's previous entry, the boring Jay Jay, was better than this! There were 2 horrible ploys created to attract cinema-goers to this film. They are: 1)cheap actress Kamna's outrageously skimpy outfits that do not suit her flabby tummy & 2)The long and lousy lip lock between the 2 leads in the film. It is a point to note that kissing was previously taboo in the Tamil film industry. Now that the censors are relaxed, pathetic movie makers are exploiting the privilege in every way they can.

First of all, movies like Idhaya Thirudan have very clichéd plots. Egomaniacal heroines have been sighted in memorable movies like Kushi and Kanda Naal Mudhal. The stubborn heroes that pursue them are also very clichéd characters.

This is Saran's 9th film and his most disappointing to date. Even his movies featuring less popular heroes like Alli Arjuna were moderate hits. His swashbuckling debut Kadhal Mannan was mind-blowing and Gemini was impactive. But I cannot fathom in the least why he would make a useless movie like Idhaya Thirudan. This film was the only Tamil film that made me want to ignore the screen most of the time while watching it at the theater.

Debutant Kamna is shameless and a pathetic actress. I will not be surprised if she turns out to be a one-film heroine like most Bombay imports nowadays.

Once an ardent fan of Jayam Ravi, I could not help but feel extremely sorry for him that he would sacrifice his squeaky clean image for a trashy role like this! It is obvious from his on-screen kiss with Kamna that this is probably his first kiss ever. No wonder it was so stony and impassion. To my dismay, this movie may very well cause this promising hero to bid farewell to his chance of emerging one of the top heroes in the 21st century. He should really have stuck to doing squeaky clean masala heroic roles which suit him as total romeo-type roles is clearly not his panache. And the fact that he will soon bid farewell to his bachelorhood by marrying Superstar Rajnikanth's younger daughter Soundarya will not help him either (just like it did to Dhanush when he married the older daughter). It might simply just abolish his female fans' clubs.

All in all, this film was this season's worst. The only watchable parts were the comedy bits. If you are looking for a romantic flick this season, catch Dishyum. It is more worth your money. I just hope Saran's next entry will not diminish after arriving with a bang!
