To whose benefit this movie called KUSELAN?
25 August 2008 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

There is much expectation out of any Rajinikanth film, even though it doesn't take much to satisfy those expectations of a "typical" Rajinikanth film. But then, this is not a Rajinikanth film and the promos are simply misusing the trust of the gullible public in making it appear so.

However, this movie deserves the ruthless criticism of all sane movie goers. It is really hard for anyone to make up their minds on what this movie is about. If it is about friendship and how an ordinary man is unwilling to exploit his older connection with a now superhero, then we should have stayed with his life in the narrative, instead of introducing two hundred clowns to cheer us up when indeed we could have wallowed in pity or admiration of the chief underdog.

If it is indeed about a superstar and him looking for his long lost friend, then we should have stayed with him, his life, and his pangs to find his friend. In fact, when Ashok Kumar, played by Rajinikanth, himself talks about the friend he has been looking for, it seems so fake since we saw nothing of the sort from the actions of the man up until that point.

So, who is this movie trying to convince? Neither is there a focus on being an art film, nor does it have the mindless but inevitable focus on the pyrotechnics of a commercial film, which can be borne as the usual trash. This film is lifeless, artless, colourless, devoid of all sense of purpose and heavily missing in urgency.

It is one abominable drag into the hole, and then we find the hole is filled with more nothings than this movie has managed to stand for. A highly forgettable piece of time wasting garbage. This kind of mockery of the public should be punished with a money back policy.
