Worth a watch!!!
18 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

No big speculation,no big cast,not a great technical crew,not an intelligent director..but the product is simply superb.It was delightful to see the movie Madharasapattinam, directed by Vijay. Its was Romance/History genre,for a change. The highlight of the movie are the stars Arya and Amy.The former came up and decent acting..and the other had a delightful smile and looks which you won't forget for a week.... The other important aspect of the movie was the music by G.V.Prakash..Both the Bgm and songs was tremendous..Pookal Pookum and Kaatrile was awesome number...... The dialogues of the movie was also quite good,like "400 Varusathukapram Thirupi Adikirom!"-MS.Bhaskar..the comedies was also good and came with the track of the movie... The disappointing factor is the impacts of the moovie Titanic in it.The Question is are we guys gone out of brains to have some originality in our movies!!! Otherwise its good movie to watch,and i highly recommend to watch it on screens,especially for GV and Amy!!!
