S.i.B – 6

November 5, 2008

The S.i.B series, this time, is split into two; too many movies here spoil the fun of writing (and even reading) one such series. The next series would have Hello, Roadside Romeo, Heroes, Aegan, Fashion and whatever I watch this weekend. Yeah ! Yeah ! I know, most of these would be available on original DVDs by now. Hmm..what to do, I was partially blind for a while and wasn’t allowed to watch movies. Restricting movies is something next to corporal punishment for me. Some of the latest releases were watched on pirated DVDs and I hereby express my sincere apologies to those producers and distributors, but at the same time, the movies that some of you come up with, doesn’t deserve to be even watched.

Here is the first set; the movies listed are based on the release dates :

Thirakadha (Screenplay) – Malayalam
After a couple of commercial debacles, director Ranjith has come up with a path breaking movie. Infact, the movie is a good relief for the Malayalam film industry which is going through rough patches. One wishes if only the director stuck to these kinds of movies rather than churning out all those frequent mindless masala flicks. The screenplay is based on the real life romance of Kamal Haasan and Sri Vidhya during the 80’s. Priyamani has done a good job, but looks artificial in some of the emotional scenes while Anup Menon clearly steals the show delivering an excellent performance. Prithviraj takes the movie forward with his narration and has nothing much to do. Recommended. Rating : 3.5 / 5

Kadhalil Vizhunden (Fell in love) – Tamil
Hero loves heroine, proposes her and both fall in love. They elope to live happily but get chased till the end. So whats new, huh? The suspense quotient along with the racy treatment of the screenplay post interval forms the only highlight in Kadhalil Vizhunden, as the first half moves sluggishly. The songs’ including the famous ‘Nakka Mukka’ number appear out of nowhere and at the same time do not take the movie forward in any way. The transformation of Nakul from a plumpy careless teenager from his Boys days to the slim and suave action hero is noteworthy. Nakul is someone to watch out for. Avoidable . Rating : 2.5 / 5

Sakkarakatti (Sugar cube !) – Tamil
Please, cant even review this !! Rating : 0 / 5 (Cant even rate for ARRs songs, they were raped by the way it was picturised)

Raman Thediya Seethai (The Seetha whom Ram searched) – Tamil
It’s the Cheran charm that made this otherwise soap opera watchable. Pasupathi and Nitin Satya has very little to do, but excels in their respective roles. Out of the five heroines, Ramya Nambeesan stands out with her brilliant performance. With an offbeat subject on love, faith, self-confidence, will power and sacrifices, this movie could have been a lot better if it was trimmed. Rating : 2.5 / 5

Drona – Hindi
A slow motion (like how its put in the movie) lethargic superhero, wears the weirdest of costumes (even a dupatta!) and matches his fists against a joker (the villain!) to save umm..err…now what was that? Cant even remember for what it was all about. Torture. Rating : 0.5 / 5 (0.5 for the interval)

Kidnap – Hindi
The funniest movie I have watched in ages !!! The only person perfect for the role was Sanjay Dutt. Imran Khan doesn’t know how to emote and that’s proved once again after his debut. He needs to work on his dialogue delivery too. Minishaa and Vidya, the ladies should have swapped their roles. I cant believe that I actually sat through this !!! Rating 0.5 / 5 ( 0.5 for the final scene picturised on Imran and Minishaa)

    Its been light years since I watched a desi flick! The last Malayalam movie I watched (after a great deal of recommendation from my Mother) was Tanmatra and I was floored by M's performance and the touching story! Among my fav Mallu flicks are Vidheyan, Kaliattam, & Pondhan Mada…. and I dont quite remember the name of the flick but the storyline skirts that of a boy being made into a saint! I love art flicks! They are deep and leave you with a sense of intensity!

    Thanks for blogrolling me Vimmuu….. I've put you in my list of 'Blogs-in-arms'

    Managed to watch sugar cube and trust me there was nothing sweet above the movie except its title I presume!!!Will post my comments as and when i see the rest in the list!!!!:). Guess no one can make such a sick movie in the near future, after watching the movie started disliking the songs also for the simple reason as to how they were picturised!!

    Btw, thanks for watching my show. But Im not planning to leave you guys that easily. will upload it here soon!!!

    @ Praddy :

    Y? y did you even watch all these in thiruttu DVD’s??? LOL.

    @ Rakesh 2 :

    The monk movie is ‘Deshadanam’; it has lovely songs, le? You could get to watch some of the desi flicks online. There are still some good ones coming out of our Indian film industry.LOL.

    Thanks for making me a part of your blog, I am honored!!!

  23. Rakesh Vanamali permalink

    Oh yes! Deshadanam it is! What a wonderful movie! I liked the scores too!

    Another of my favs is Sargam plus the scores the flick boasted!

    Kerala is a different charm altogether! I regret not being able to learn Malayalam as much as I have wanted!

    Deeply remembering Chamgampuzha’s Ramanan, particularly Gramabhangi!
