Leading Tamil Cinema to the wrong way AGAIN !
20 January 2013 | by (Chennai) – See all my reviews

In the recent past, I was feeling better about Tamil Cinema as a result of really good movies like Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kanom , Pizza and FEW others. That was because the bad aspects which always persisted in the past bad Tamil movies were starting to disappear. By bad aspects I meant, 1. Songs in the very inappropriate parts of the movie 2. Too much time wasted in introducing the male lead actor in the movie. 3. Unnecessary violent fight sequences for the male lead actor with slow motions and heroic musical background THROUGHOUT THE MOVIE. 4. VERY UNNECESSARY English lines (Mostly for the negative role character) 5. Too many characters in the movie just to create a twist in the end of the movie. 6. Only 20% of the movie tells about the story in the movie. (IF there was a STORY :P) 7. Etc Etc Etc

All these aspects which I thought were starting to disappear from Tamil movies, appeared in this ONE SINGLE MOVIE - SAMAR

I would have even given 0/10 as my rating but there is no such option. Even if there are some good aspects in the movie, those will never be noticed because these kind of movies are unhealthy for Tamil Cinema.

We do have good story tellers. Don't make them get unnoticed because BAD always reaches places and stands forward than GOOD. LET THE GOOD STAND UP !
