After seeing Temper, I was sure no other film could ever top it. It's still my favorite cop action film till date, but since I'm a big fan of Vishal, I couldn't stop myself from watching Ayogya, the official Tamil-language remake. Usually before, during and after watching the remake of a classic, it's quite normal to make comparisons. Trust me, while there were some parts where I did that, I mostly found Ayogya a different film despite of mostly being a scene-by-scene remake.
What actually changes it course is the ending and the few minutes before it. As known to all, the climax was changed as Vishal wanted it to. And this is the major reason why I became more eager to check it out. Despite of being a remake, what differentiates Ayogya from Temper is the tone. Temper too was an outstandingly crafted, serious-and-spicy film, but Ayogya turned out to be more grounded in terms of storytelling. Another thing that changes is the action. Temper's action sequences were more realistic and less stylized while Ayogya's action is stylized and at times even better than those in Temper.
The color tone in Ayogya is also something that has to be praised. It's exactly what a cop action film should be like: action-packed, emotional, tension-filled and gripping. The director has adapted it well to suit the Tamil audiences, despite of the fact that a film of this subject appeals to viewers of any kind.
Vishal's impressive as an action hero, but this time you get to see him as a performer too. It's hard for me to compare his performance with that of Jr. NTR since the original is original, that's true. But Vishal truly owns Ayogya with his outstanding act. Other actors have also done an impressive job.
Yes, Ayogya is a full-on mass action entertainer with terrific action sequences, heroic elevations, peppy dance numbers, a little bit of irreverent humor and mass emotions that are the real highlights of the film. But the climax is what really turns this into an offbeat action film instead of a fully commercial one. That being said, while I still love Temper to the core, Ayogya too joins the top spot along with it. Because while I agree that Ayogya has a grounded climax, Temper too has a climax that entertains and connects emotionally.
