Best Tamil movie of the year or at least... would be in top 3
Fictional Story of the popular Tamil drama artists and their troop who lived before and during the Indian Independent movement. The story is as close to the novel or real with the minor cinematic touches.
Not a big fan of Prithiviraj. But, he has done one of the best acting performance in this year in Tamil. If awards ceremonies have supporting actor category, he would bag all the awards including the National award (possible). Siddharth have done equal justice with his performance as the lead. Nasser, Vedhika and the troop has really done well.
Cinematography gives the mood and settles down all the small glitches in the film. Color, tone, angles and execution is something close to astonishing ( par best to the Indian level).
Art direction is outstanding (awards are knocking the door). Editing is good.
Choreography is good. Dialogues are the best at any standard.
Music is soulful and admirable. This album and BGM would be considered for National awards or even it will win South Indian Filmfare.
Direction is good would have been better.
NEGATIVES: Screenplay is mediocre even the good editing doesn't help it. The film have some problems at the finishing line is dragged before the climax. The climax sequences are like stereotypical Tamil film. Still, I would say this as a better film than my words
1st HALF - Masterpiece. Pure cinematic experience. 2nd HALF - Could have been better but good.
Music, cinematography, Art direction and Dialogues will bag the awards.
Send this picture to Overseas film festivals would get honored from the real movie critics
This would be a Tamil Amadeus or Tamil Prestige
8.4*/10 for an International movie 9*/10 as a Indian/Tamil movie
