Utter Garbage and nonsense... plot stolen from video game "Assassins Creed"
24 November 2011 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Its quite evident that Tamil film makers can't make a movie without copying world movies or Hollywood movies. Now, even more worse than before that this thieving swine A.R.Murugadoss have stolen plot from video game called "Assassins Creed". The director has covered his ugly face thru introducing Bodhidharman to Tamil people. And even more worst and annoying thing is by asking Tamil people who is Bodhidharman that doesn't make any sense. As far Historical fact, Bodhidharman ran away from India because he loved Buddhism and changed himself completely to Chinese culture and religion. In India, Buddhism wasn't so famous and Hindu activists didn't allow Buddhists to stay in India. So, he lived and died for Chinese people but he didn't do any extraordinary stuff for Tamil. How come Tamil people could remember him? In fact, even in China nobody knows him as Bodhidharman, but only as DAMO.

Of course, our Tamil audience haven't exposed to the world cinema, they may think this is brilliant but compare to world cinema, 7aum arivu is indeed worst movie ever.

A.R.Murugadoss also copied from other Hollywood flicks "M:I 2" and "Outbreak". Shameful and disgusting.

Harris Jeyaraj's score and songs were boring down to the deep core. In fact, songs are tolerable but score (BGM) totally intolerable. Horrible, just Horrible!

Shruti Hassan's tamil accent was just pathetic. Is he daughter of Great actor Kamal Hassan? No expression and awful dialogue delivery makes her as worst actress. However, as she is new comer to cinema world, i think she needs time to learn every aspect of acting in cinema.

Another thing was introducing foreign villain Johnny Nugyen wasn't quite effective. He looked like ordinary villain as we seen in Vijaykanth movies. Of course, Johnny is indeed talented artist and his martial skills are tremendous but he was less utilized by director. His character looked more powerful than others but became lifeless. The climax fight between suriya and him was totally childish and silly. I felt that was quite insult to martial arts.

Previously, A.R.Murugadoss copied Nolan's "Memento" and made Ghajini in Tamil and as well as in Hindi and also he tasted success, now, he has no other option to taste this bitterness of failure of the movie. And also many people can see his ugly face which was torn into pieces.

Overall, improper research, poorly written script, awful screenplay, worst score and songs makes 7aum arivu as utter garbage.
