Selvaraghavan-The Aayirathil Oruvan
18 January 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie which created high expectations for 2 years reaches silver screen with a bang! hats off to Selva and his crew who made this happen.

Plot: During 12th century,Chozans were defeated by the Pandians,causing the Chozan king with his people to remain hidden with the enemy god's idol..Pandians are still in search of them..presently,the casts Karthi,Reema,Andrea go pass 7 traps set by Chozan to reach the hidden Chozan world...the rest of the story reveals Reema's mystery and Karthi's destine..........

All credit goes to Selva who has made a successful magnum opus.The important aspect of the movie is its raw and sensible screenplay.

The cast of the movie are definite plus..Karthi has completely dominated the first half of the movie wit hilarious comedies,and innocent acting..Brave attempt of Reema in second half is sure for credit,Andrea plays a soft and sizzling role in the movie..Parthiban as the Chozan king is above grounds,his performance in this movie surely deserves an award....

Music is the soul heart of the movie scored by G.V.Prakash ..songs are tremendous incl Oh Eesa,Un Mela Aasadhan and Thai Thindra..the two instrumentals, King arrives and Celebration of life are best part of the movie holding audience nerves...

Cinematography and art direction adds beautiful ingredients to the movie..graphics could have been made still more perfectly..

Finally,Selvaraghavan has clean shaved all the non-sense commercial flicks and has given a new genre for Tamil cinema..the story of the movie speaks for itself...the scene of Nataraja shadow is purely brilliancy in world cinema..the characterization of the Chozan king is amazing..the research work of the director is excelled in all departments like music and living styles of Chozans..

the negative aspects are the character of the army officer and rape scenes in final minutes..

To conclude AO is the movie that carries Tamil history in world class style...new entry for cult movie.

(Desperately waiting for AO2)
