KADHALA KADHALA:(Kamal,Prabhudeva,Rambha,Soundarya music:Karthik Raja
dir:Singeetham Srinivasa Rao)
Another Crazy Mohan drama. It would have been better if Maadhu and Cheenu
had acted in this movie. Kamal and Prabhudeva have been completely wasted
in this film. There is no logic but a full length comedy. For the 999th
time, the heroes (Kamal and Pdeva) are orphans and they take care of another
8-10 orphan kids. Due to a mix up, Kamal meets Soundarya and Pdeva meets
Rambha. What else?, they start loving each other. Rambha marries Pdeva against
the wishes of her father(M.S.V). Soundarya tells her father(Mouli) that she is in love
with Kamal and that he is very rich. Rambha tries to pacify her father by
writing to him that Pdeva has become rich and that she has given birth to a child.
Rambha's parents come to chennai to meet her. Rambha hires a big house and due to
unavoidable circumstances Kamal acts as her husband, Pdeva as cook and Soundarya
as maid. They also hire a child(to act as Rambha's child) and her mother,
Kovai Sarala acts as milk maid. A blackmailer(who knows these secrets) enters
the house. Mouli also arrives. Confusion, Confusion, Confusion everywhere.
Needless to say Crazy Mohan and Kamal excel. The film is a full length comedy
movie. Soundarya and Rambha are also wasted. Karthik Raja's music is very
ordinary (though the songs are a hit). You can watch this movie once.
DINAMTHORUM:(Murali,Suvalakshmi music:Oviyan dir:Nagaraj)
Another love story without KADHAL in title. as usual Murali is
a fresh graduate looking for a job (Happy news: Murali has declared that
he will not act as a college student anymore). Murali is in Love with
Suvalakshmi and proposes to her after a long time. Suva asks him to
find a job and tells him that only after he finds a job she can marry him.
His love with Suva, helps him to find a job and marry her. Though the
story sounds dull, the movie is interesting. The director, who also acts
in the film, impresses the audience. Nice movie.... you can watch it once.
NAAM IRUVAR NAMAKKU IRUVAR:
(Prabhudeva,Meena,Maheshwari music:Karthik Raja dir:Sunder.C)
This time Sunder.C did not take the trouble of watching many english
movies.....just one. This film is an exact replica of the english film
TWO MUCH. The hero is like ENGA MAMA, Sivaji. He supports many orphans
and inorder to bring them up in life, he steals a diamond. Manivannan
misplaces the diamond in a car. The car belongs to Maheshwari and so they
go to her house in search of the diamond. Prabhudeva meets Meena and falls
in love with her. Due to unavoidable circumstances, he gets engaed to
Maheshwari. After the engagement he meets Meena again(she is Maheshwari's
sister). The remaining part of the story is the usual Sunder.C stuff. The
film(though a copy) is a very good entertainer. Karthik Raja's music is
a plus point for the movie. This is the first movie where Meena appears in
a swim suit(padam fulla Meenu kutty kalakuthu).
(Mammoty,Devayani music:S.A.Rajkumar Dir:Bharathi)
Vijayakanth will surely repent for not accepting this film. Excellent
team effort & hardwork by the debutant director Bharathi has helped this
film to strike gold. Mammoty is Rasu Padayachi, who is one step more than
CHINNA GOUNDER because he is the head of 36 Patti villages(CG was the head
of 18 Patti only). One day Mammoty goes to some 37th Patti "Sandhai". People
in this village dont know him. In the market place, he pulls Devayani to
save her from a snake. Devayani slaps Rasu Padayachi without realizing what
has happened. The Village Head, Ranjith, ties Mammoty to a tree and hits him
with a whip. Mamooty is injured badly but tells his villagers that it was due
to a car accident. Later(without the knowledge of Mammoty), his driver tells
the truth to the villagers. The agitated villagers , kill Ranjith's parents
and burn the entire village(Devayani's mother too dies in fire). Devayani
marries Mammoty to take revenge but soon changes her mind. Ranjith too
tries his best to insult and kill Mammoty but in the end Mamooty's good
nature wins. Mammoty has lived as Rasu Padayachi. Thanger Pacchan's camera
is too good(especially during the title). it is the second consecutive
success for producer Henry(BHARATHI KANNAMA).
(Surya,Murali,Kavitha mus:Deva dir:Indiran)
Producer "Sivasakthi" Pandiyan was constantly giving hits and now he is
trying very hard to make this film run for a 100 days. The success of
Letter Kadhal, Telephone Kadhal, One side Kadhal, Parental Kadhal...etc.
has urged the director to try something new and "EUREKA" they got the
most stupidest idea........Kadhaley Illatha Kadhal(Love without Love).
New heroine Kavitha and her brother(Nasser) go to a temple.Surya, an
amateur photographer takes photos of the statues at the temple. Nasser,
thinks that Surya is taking snaps of his sister and hits him. He also
thinks that Surya and Kavitha are in love and so warns his sister.
Kavitha, out of symapthy, goes to the hospital to see Surya but is caught
by Nasser. The entire family of Kavitha, think that she is in love with
Surya. Kavitha, thinks that only Surya can explain the real situation
to her parents and so goes to Chennai to meet him. This causes more
confusion because Nasser and Kavitha's parents think that she has eloped
with Surya. They file a kidnapping case against Surya and in the climax,
Kavitha explains in the court what really happened. Till now, everything
is fine. After the court scene, Murali(Kavitha's fiancee) tells everyone
that since Surya and Kavitha have undergone so much trouble without even
being in Love, it is very just to get them married(Height of Stupidism)
and gets them married.Except for the climax the movie is very good. There
is one more thing which I cannot tolerate.
"Vitha Vithama Soppu Seepu Kannadi
En Akka Maga Vanthu Ninna Munnadi.....
Davu Davu Davuda, Davillati DIEada."
Deva at his peak form (Thanga Mudiyalada Saameeeeeey).
(Arjun,Simran,Manthra music:Raj(Kotti) dir:K.S.Ravikumar)
It would have been better if they had kept the name as OPPARI.
Everybody in this movie keep crying at some time or other(I wonder
how the director had the heart to make Simran cry...... I cross my
heart and say,"When Simu cries, i cannot bear it").
Arjun is a fun loving youth, who keeps playing jokes on others. Once,
because of his prank, his friends die in an accident. Simran(Arjun's
lover) does not like this and so they split. Arjun goes to his dead
friend's house and works there as a servant. Meanwhile, Simran is
engaged to a person in that house and comes there for her marriage.
There is also a suspense segment where Arjun tracks the person who wants
to kill his friend's child. The film has some 100 characters and all
of them were not utilised properly. Songs are okay but back ground
score is pathetic. Not many sentiment scenes for the audience but there
are lot such scenes for the characters and half the time someone is crying.
one main reason why you shouldn't watch this film...Simran & Manthra
VETTIYA MADICHU KATTU:
(Bhagyaraj, Nagma music:Deva dir:Bhagyaraj)
In another few days JEANS is going to be released. In this JEAN's age
Bhagyaraj is still Madichu Kattufying an already torn Vetti.
Bhagyaraj is a coward, but wants his son to be a brave person. He makes
his son believe that he is a brave person. Once Bhagyaraj sees a murder
and is forced to appear in the court as a witness. The murderer is given
a death sentence but escapes from prison. He is after Bhagyaraj(to take
revenge). In the end Bhakyaraj turns bold, fights the murderer and hands
him over to the police. Dabba Kathai+Dabba direction+ Deva= VETTIYA M K.
If you are a Bhagyaraj fan...Please don't see this movie.
(Parthiban, Prakashraj, Devayani music:Swaraj dir:K.S.Adhiyaman)
A must watch movie. Superb acting by Parthiban and Prakashraj,
powerful dialogues, good background score and an interesting screenlay
by director Adhiyaman, is sure to make this movie a hit. Devayani is the
daughter of a Devadasi(Fathima). She falle in love with Parthiban.
Parthibans father is against their love and sends his men to bring
Parthiban back. Unfortunately Parth cuts the hand of the person and is sent
to the prison. Devayani is not aware about this. She thinks that Parthiban
had ditched her. She leaves to Chennai and becomes a famous dancer. She
meets Prakashraj and just when they are about to start a new love
chapter, Parthiban returns from prison. Now Devayani cannot decide on whom
to marry and whom to reject. The climax involves a lot of emotion & soem
superb performance. The new music director Swaraj has a bright future.
Swaraj, especially excels in the classical sequences. Parthiban is Kalakal
as ususal. Dont miss this movie.
(Ajith,Manu music: Bharadwaj dir :Charan)
A very good entertainer. Director Charan was an assistant director
to Balachander. Charan lives upto the expectation. I think after a long
time, this film will give Ajit, the break he is looking for.
Ajith meets Manu's sister in Delhi, who asks him to give a letter to Manu
without the knowledge of her father. This is bcos Manu's sister had a love
marriage against the wishes of her father. Manu is already engaged to Karan.
Ajith meets her and gives her the letter. They become friends. Ajith takes
her to Delhi to meet her sister. Slowly they start loving each other. Manu
could not disclose her love bcos she is already engaged to Karan. The movie
is very entertaining from start to end. The only irritating aspect of this
movie is M.S.Viswanathan's comedy (he has acted as Mess Viswanathan). The
music is very good. New music director(Bharadwaj) kalakkurar. The songs in
this movie have been sung by some 6 music directors. Manu has acted well.
(Prabhu,Suvalakshmi,Priyaraman music:S.A.Rajkumar dir:S.P.Rajkumar)
Another boring movie from Prabhu. If Prabhu acts in a few more movie like
this he will soon become extinct. If you have decided not to see this movie
then you can read the review(bcos it has some suspense in it). Prabhu and
his wife, Suvalakshmi live in a colony. Prabhu meets Priyaraman in a
scooter mix up and soon Priya starts loving Prabhu. Karan comes to the
colony. He goes after Suvalakshmi and one day, proposes to her. The
suspense breaks here and they say that Suva is not Prabhu's wife and that
they have been acting as if they were husband and wife. Suva and Karan
marry and in the end Prabhu sacrifices his love with Priya bcos of her
family. Except for the comedy, nothing else in good in this movie.
Yet another flop from this hero. This is his 125th movie and it didn't
run for even 125 shows. there is no story. Music is very bad(in some
scenes the back ground score is good). The director wanted to take a
movie like ABYSS but it ended as a tragedy. The under water scenes are
very funny. Vijayakanth finds some nuclear bombs and towards the end
of the movie, the villains pick pocket the bomb(?!!!).
Onumey Puriyaley Ulagathillai!!!!
Another kaddi movie. Manivannan asks his son Karan to Love a rich
girl and marry her. Karan meets Kushbu(a rich girl) and falls in
love with her. He realizes that it is a true love. Though Kushbu
likes him as a friend, she gets angry when he proposes to her. At
one stage she could not tolerate Karan and hands him over to the police.
The police officer tries to molest Kushbu and Karan kills him. Even
after this Kushbu does not love him and gives a big lecture and leaves
him. Semma bore. Kushbu looks like Karan's elder sisterMusic...okay.
(Sarathkumar,Devayani music:Sirpi dir:Suraaj)
I wanted to see this movie in its second week but I couldn't find it. If
someone knows where this film is running please let me know.
This movie is better than MOOVENDHAR. It ran for two weeks. Thank God,
I missed this film.
KIZHAKKUM MERKKUM :
(Napolean,Nasser,Devayani music:Illayaraja dir:Kalanjiyum)
Another KIZHAKKU SEEMAYILLEY. The film is good but could not attract the
audience. In this story Napolean is the brother and Devayani is the
sister. A lot of sentiment scenes. Ladies are requested to carry a big
kerchief. Illayaraja's music brings in a new dimension to this village
subject. Kalanjium's direction is good but the topic he has approached
is very old.
THULLI THIRINDHA KAALAM:
(Arunkumar,Karan,Kushbu,Roshini music:Jayanth dir:Balasekharan)
If you are ready for a 2.5 hrs of advice..... this film is
the right thing for you. Except fot the climax(which ofcourse, delivers
an excellent message), the film is filled with an overdose of advices.
Arunkumar and friends are unemployed youth. Throghout the day, they sit on a
wall and waste their time chatting . They havent understood the seriousness
of life and Kushboo helps them understand it by sending a love letter to
each one of them. Arunkumar and friends think that the letter was sent to
them by Roshini.
Later they find that Roshini is insane and that the it
was Kushboo who was responsible for the letter. Kushboo explains the reason
for the letter and delivers a punch line advice note which forms the backbone
for the entire movie. The film is a very good lesson for all those youth who
waste their lives. Raghuvaran(Kushbu's father) & Karan(Kush's brother) have
a dynamic role and they play it with ease. Music?
Director Balashekaran(LOVE TODAY) has made producer Balachander happy.
