* Remake of Ravi Teja's Kick a Telugu Super Hit Movie.
What a Remake? M Raja - What he had done before? Hanuman Junction (Telugu) a remake of Malayalam Hit Thenkasipattanam, second movie Jayam (Tamil) a remake of a Telugu movie with the same name, third movie M Kumaran S/O Mahalakshmi (Tamil) another remake of Telugu movie Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammayi, his fourth movie Unakkum Enakkum (Tamil) yet another remake of Telugu 'Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana', fifth movie Santhosh Subramaniam (Tamil) and again a remake of another Telugu Movie 'Bommarilu' and this movie is not an exception. This film has also same as before, each and every scene and shot from the Original Version.
'Kick', the Telugu version was received with Mixed reviews and the film itself was a modified version of 'Gentleman'. The Main problem with the movie (Not only this Movie, but all M Raja movies) is that each and every actor imitating the Actors from the Original Version. M Raja's main Negative point is that he never changes any Dialoges but Includes two or three extra Dialoges , he just translate it to Tamil and also even the slang / Tone is same in both the Movies. And Jayam Ravi and Thamanna is going to become the best Mimicry Artist in Tamil Nadu, Thamanna copied or Xerox Copied Kareena Kapoor for her Kandean Kadhalai, and now Ileana. And Jayam Raja - Falls Flat. One of the worst performance. Its terrible to see him imitating each every mannerism of Ravi Teja (Telugu Hero), The main point is that 'Kick' Character is developed with Ravi Teja in Mind and with His perfect Comedy timing the movie has taken a step ahead. But in this movie, Jayam Ravi is not apt for the character rather should have given to actors like Vijay or Vikram who can do good Comedy scenes and be serious at the same time.
Only Good and Notable performances are from Shaam and Prabhu.
I think, few viewers who had never seen the Original can enjoy in Parts, but only in very few scenes though.
