want to become mad, search logic in this movie
24 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Stop wasting money in this type of movie and spend money for poor people.

100% Kadikarran.

Vettaikaran title did not suit for this movie, since Bagavathy movie story already used in diff way,they might have chosed Bagavathy 2 or hero character name.

Many people asked same question in this movie, How come a gangster head suddenly become a Political minister without winning in election?????

gangster-head met some person, no idea who is he, but he has rights to make him minister without political party meeting or what ever it is.

movie 1st half no story, just done with heroin. why because producer paid much for her. 2nd half, no one was not able to understand why all those new scenes are coming in action. like villain said, in 3 months hero become big gangster. next to this scene, hero got enthu song where all people will pray for hero and looking help.

Movie seems like they made lengthy movie but don't know how to work on editing section. all frames are like artificially attached, it doesn't has normal flow to understand.

as like everyone words, vijai cant success on original stories, he has to be always remake hero from other language movies.

questions : 1- in which college we are getting 1st year degree admission for aged people ? 2- can any gangster become Political Minister without winning election ? 3- in which police station,officers can have haircoloring by their junior police officer ? 4- Encounter specialist can shoot villains, but when he saw gangster in his, why cant he shoot them ? 5- in chennai which 4 corner road doesn't have traffic police in rush area ? 6- is people still there to believe all 0% logical movies ?

----------- Most wanted question :

Can we use our car remote locking, when car is completely under water ? also if we lock car from outside, outsider cant go inside but people who are inside can come out from car right. but our hero did a brilliant( his brain) job in it, he locked car from outside, so that villain cant come out from car, bcos its locked :).

even if hero doesn't lock , villain will die in water bcos he don't know swimming. but he died inside the car in 0% no water , why bcos our hero already locked car from outside ( note : all windows and doors locked ) .


English movie director shows their imagination power in screen, always they make story and select

suitable hero's. Tamil movie director's was making movies with message where public should understand life nature. but now few director making movie for hero and writing suitable story without any logical way and makes public fool.

Movies like " Nadodigal " has 100% logical story. that movie has no popular face, all new actors, that made huge success.

Since this movie 2nd half actions dint have continues line and it seems like trailer, why bcos all scenes are like attached artificially.

Kindly wait for few months, you can watch this movie on popular TV channels during festival time.
