Good - Story line Better - Creative Direction Best - Tamil Movie
21 November 2011 | by raamrSee all my reviews

I hope you would agree with me that all Indians tend to compare the following kind of Indian movies (any language) with Hollywood movies

  • has a story line which reflects life of a high society people - problems with latest technological advancements - sci-fi subject - has a story line influenced by a Hollywood story


IMO Indian movies usually fall short in some department or the other. Especially latest bollywood movies. The problems I usually see with such movies are

  • No creativity in direction or story telling. - Screen writing does not match Indian life style/culture (copy of Hollywood script). - Bad computer graphics / Effects


Murugadoss's - 7 aum arivu seems to prove that a quality movie can be given by Indian directors by absorbing the story telling capabilities of Hollywood directors. You may be able to guess what is going to happen in most scenes and his story telling techniques could resemble scenes from different Hollywood movies. But what I see is the justification that the scenes are really necessary for this movie and that it is taken precisely. Also he doesn't deal with explaining every scene thru dialogues which most directors do. Some are left for audience to imagine which makes the movie really crisp. I see a quality movie that is taken in Hollywood style with chennai in the backdrop. There are only a handful of Indian directors (like Ashutosh Gowarikar) who could handle these tough subjects. IMO Murugadoss is one among them.

Definitely a must see movie.
