Bodhi Dharma will kill himself if he watches this
31 December 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It claims to show the greatest Indian who lived in the Past, Bodhi Dharma but ended showing gimmicks and utter foolishness. The movie was highly waited from my side as I thought it would bring a new genre to Indian movies but I was disappointed as it showed the stereotyped story line,comedies and music. The introduction of Bodhi Dharma was really good and Surya deserves applause for what he did and Shruthi Hassan for talking fully in the native language, But every other aspect receives a huge boo from my side. Bodhi Dharma was an Indian and he traveled to China with the art form known as KALARI but in the movie none of the Kalari movements are adapted but instead they show Kung Fu master Bodhi Dharma. The action sequences as expected was too much,hey what did he mean by looking in the eye and making people kill themselves when there are sequences where he makes a guy turn and look into his eyes when he was looking the other side,then flying cars,stupid cops and finally Circus guy who outruns him???What the hell?? The story line was copied from a game called assassins creed wherein the protagonist has a bloodline of assassin ancestors and his DNA has memories of the past. The game already established its four parts and this movie took theme from it. Then what is this about Tamil???I am Indian and We WILL USE only native language if she(Shruthi Hassan) told like that it would have showed us PATRIOTISM and INTEGRITY. The music sucked badly with just some beats here and there. The movie was boring from the start till end and it deserves a great boo from all.
