Worst movie of the year 2015. Mr.Shankar - Please retire.
People always ask me "Why do i hate Tamil movies?" I do not hate complete Tamil movies. I loved some Tamil movies but majority are silly and idiotic. Example, recent release Shankar's "I". Watched "I" today, it was 3 hours of torture and had traumatized experience in theater. Its sad that actor Vikram have had worked so hard for the worst script or movie. In this world, if there is a director who depends up on only technology but not any other contribution factor like story-telling and strong content, that could be Shankar. Shankar is the director who makes the movie in silly and stupid way. His previous venture "Endhiran" is always indeed best example how a movie should not be made. Of course, I.Q level of Indian audience is questionable.
Shankar's I story revolves around Lingesan (Vikram) who is quite ambitious to become Mr.India but he has to win state championship Mr.Tamil Nadu. Lingesan who is also fan of Model Dia (typical Shankar movie, Lingesan collects bra, perfume, underwear which are shown in TV ad modeled by Dia) too clichéd. Now, Dia face problem in modeling world, i.e his co-model John (Upen Patel). John likes to have casual sex with Dia but Dia is not that type of girl. John uses his influence to get rid of Dia from Modelling for not fulfilling sexual desire. Now, Dia has one option to use his fan Lingesan to regain her position in model world. At first, Dia use him as love bait and then eventually, fell in love with her. Later on, he gains enemies and so, they destroyed Lingesan carrier as well as his life. In climax, they reveal the actual main villain (Suresh Gopi) which was predictable in the middle of the movie.
Oh! Boy, somebody should tell Mr.Shankar how to write a script and execute on big screen. Even 6 year old kid could do wonders as director. Shankar is even worse than that. Biggest problem with director Shankar is that using silly graphics, too much costumes, extras and meaningless make ups in a movie is always vulnerable. He makes everything silly. Even fighting sequences in his movies are really atrocious. Of course, in "I", fighting scene in China was deep core orgy of stupidity. When will he stop this stupidity? A man kicks 50 people at the same time is quite ugly and atrocious. Mr.Shankar, please become matured director and please stop making atrocious films.
Vikram, as an actor he performed so well. Unfortunately, it does not support the movie because of poor writing. Problem with Vikram is his immature choice of scripts. His carrier tells the story that he acted in 85% crap movies than good movies. Only because of media and his fan boys created sympathy and hype about Vikram's weight increase/decrease and hard work towards this movie, which may certain do some magic. Just because of make ups or increase or decreasing the body will not make him best actor. He should act in good movies with talented directors. His talent was recognized by only one director, i.e Bala.
Only thing i liked in the movie is Amy Jackson who looked so sexy and beautiful. Of course, surprisingly, she tried her best in acting department. Highly appreciated.
Music always plays vital role in movies but here, A.R.Rahman destroyed musical world. Either score or songs are horrible. I request ARR to learn music from the beginning. Pathetic.
If there is a hero, heroine, villain, then let there be comedian. Oh! Yeah, you will find Santhanam as comedian who just tediously irritate in the climax.
Overall, Movie is dragging and dragging and more than 3 hours of torture which may put the viewers to sleepless nights.
I will be surprised if this movie fails at box office. Brainless audience would love this brainless mayhem.
After this, if you people really want to see this 3 hours of torture, then you on your own funeral.
Worst movie of the year. 0.5/10
7 Aum Arivu (2011)
Utter Garbage and nonsense... plot stolen from video game "Assassins Creed"
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.
Again Another garbage from director Shankar
First of all, i personally thank director shankar for making my guess right. Yes, i made an wild guess about this movie before its release, that this Endhiran is going to suck all the way. Million thanks to Shankar.
Before going to this movie, i expected this movie will not suit my taste. But in first few minutes of movie, i thought i had wrong opinion about Endhiran. Yes, film started with impressive note. I was about to change my mind and decided let me involve into this movie completely. But there was unnecessary inclusion of song "kadhal Anukkal" which completely distracted me. From thereon, movie's path marched towards typical Indian Garam masala. First half was somewhat tolerable, but second half, completely garbage and awful. Songs, mosquito scenes and overdose of CGI which completely ruined my cinema viewing experience.
It clearly shows that even though if we hire Hollywood technicians, we can't produce quality sci fi film, unless and until we have good and intelligent directors. The problem with Indian film makers is that nobody wants to experiment and change the path of Indian cinema. We just stick around with same old traditional formula like a boy meets a girl type love stories.
As far as Endhiran concern, i don't see any new, apart from that Robot character "Chitti". This movie contains all sort masalas poured in and they did it in the name of sci fi. That's pathetic and ridiculous. This film has half baked triangular love story and certainly i could see many action stunts have been borrowed from various Hollywood sci fi flicks. Another thing which lacks in the movie is story telling. Many directors in India fail to understand the concept of storytelling which is the main tool for any cinema. Always there should be proper presentation and execution. Shankar definitely lacks maturity in execution and presentation. Since "boys", his approach towards film making have been changed. He lost all his charms and started making stupid movies like "Anniyan", "Sivaji" and now "Endhiran"
But to me, the biggest surprise that after long time, i had opportunity to see Rajnikanth in negative role. This film became hit just because of Rajnikanth. Without his presence, this movie would have been biggest flop in Indian cinema. In fact, without Rajni no producer in our country would dare to invest Rs.200 crores. I am happy with Rajni alone, but i am disappointed with Danny Dezongpa who is suppose to be one of the finest actor in India. But his character development was not up to the mark. Aishwarya, nothing to say, she doesn't fit to be an actress. All other characters are dummy piece.
As far as music concern, ARR should have done better. BGM for this movie doesn't suit on certain scenes which i felt totally mistimed. CGI was average but not great as i expected.
Overall, this Endhiran is definitely not for die hard sci fi lovers around the world but it will be definitely good treat for die hard Rajni's fans.
