Trivia

The song 'Cinema Cinema' commemorates the 75th anniversary of Telugu cinema. Archival footage of famous superstar actors N. T. Rama Rao (popularly "NTR"), Akkineni Nageswara Rao ("ANR"), M. G. Ramachandran ("MGR"), and Rajkumar are shown with each chorus of this song. The verse alternates between clips shot of an actual movie crew filming on location, intercut with real-life superstar actor Rajnikanth - who plays a fictional superstar actor in this film - spoofing blockbuster movies such as Zorro, Lawrence of Arabia, House of Flying Daggers, and the James Bond series.

Takes Cinema back by a decade.
10 August 2008 | by (Chennai) – See all my reviews

Where do i start? Is it the Merciless sabotage of such a brilliant script? Is it the absolute lunacy of Rajini coming into the movie on a winged horse? Is it the crude and tasteless comedy track that totally derails the movie? Is it the unwarranted cleavage shots and thigh shots that makes it impossible to watch with family and gives the movie a soft-porn look? Or is it the mind numbing music? Two and a half hours of this and you come out of the theater depressed, dejected and lost all hope in mankind. An iconic figure like Rajini who is supposed to set an example for younger generation actors, goes and does such a cliché. Way to go Sir. Keep this up and you will send Tamil cinema back to stone age.

Watch at your own risk.
