Ko a xerox copy of state of play!!!
7 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

The word KO means a leader or king in,I wonder why the director kept this title for the film.I say it for sure that Tamil cinema lost a good title.

Moreover it is an unofficial remake of state of play.even after remaking the film the director of the film K.V.Anand did'n say anything about state of play,at least he could have mentioned it in any TV shows, like what director myskin did for yutham sei.

The first scene of the film was too bad that the robbers were looking like some idiotic goons who don't know even how to handle a pistol.They were very powerful that they even break very hard glasses with their shoes(what a man).

Hero of the film Jeeva who gave remarkable performances throughout his career gave even a better performance which was the only good aspect of the film.

Entry of new face Kaarthiga(daughter of Raadha)is a great disaster for Tamil cinema,she don't know even how to act or dance.For every scene she gives same reaction.

There were many unwanted comedies which were not needed for the film which made me shout at the theater.

In the climax even after pulling the trigger of the bomb it waits for jeeva to jump out and then he lands safely without any fractures(once again , What a man).

I am sure that harris jayaraj (the one who thinks himself as hans zimmer) has stolen the title theme from wrestlemania theme !!!!!

please get out of our country you filthy copycat.

I pray to god to give a good movie taste for tamil audience.
