Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan Review – Total Rubbish

A worthless piece of trash, Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan is sheer agony to endure.

Since we’ve enjoyed Vadivelu’s comedy for several years, it was with a great deal of excitement and anticipation that we headed to the Newark Screens theater in Newark, NJ on Saturday to watch Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan.

Oh, what a horrendous nightmare it turned out to be.

While the makers of Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan tout it as a comedy, the movie is nothing short of a tragedy for viewers who made the mistake of shelling out $10 to watch this trash.

Director Thambi Ramaiah and producer Manickam Narayanan ought to be hounded out of the Tamil movie industry with a broomstick for inflicting garbage like Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan on hapless viewers. 

This is a movie that should never have seen the light of day.

Unbearably crude, horribly amateurish and silly beyond belief, Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan left us with a stinging migraine at the end.

There is no story worth speaking of in Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan, the sets are more amateurish than a high school drama production set and the acting garishly loud.

Vadivelu plays three roles in this movie - King of Gods Indira, God of Death Yama and a stage-actor Azhagappan in the village.

And he is unwatchable, unendurable and unfathomable in all of them.

None of the three roles Vadivelu plays leave a pleasing impression because of the total lack of attention to the story.

A chance encounter with celestial nymph Rambha (Theetha Sharma) leads to Azhagappan (Vadivelu) being transported to heaven every night and returned to Earth in the day.

And the baloney continues ad nauseum, ad infinitum.

What was Vadivelu thinking when he decided to act in this sophomoric movie? Did he not read the script beforehand or were his eyes feasting only on the money before him?

The much ballyhooed item number by Delhi lass Shriya Saran of Sivaji fame is hopelessly crude and utterly charmless. When Azhagappan tells his mother and friends about his nightly experiences in heaven, no one believes him and he is considered to be possessed of the devil. So Shriya is brought in to rid him of the devil within.

By the time Shriya finished her ugly song/dance item number, we felt like exorcising the devil out of this bimbo.

With her expressive eyes and seductive figure, Theetha Sharma who plays the celestial dancer Rambha in Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan shows some signs of acting talent but has too small a role in this movie. Let’s hope we see more of Theetha Sharma in future.

As for Sabesh-Murali’s music, these dimwits ought to focus their limited talents on funeral processions in future. Because The Dead Stay Dumb and can’t complain about these incompetent mutts.

Movies like Azhagiya Tamil Magan, Vel, Billa, Bheema and now Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan prove that Tamil movies are fast sinking into the gutter of mediocrity.

Is there no relief for Tamil movie fans from this unending nightmare?

    Guess u didn’t watch movies like Katradhu Tamil, Kadhal etc. Do consider movies like Katradhu Tamil, Kadhal, Chennai 28, Mozhi, Paruthi Veeran.

    Just by considering few movies, one cannot curse the whole Tamil Industry! Responds:

    We watched Mozhi (one of the movies in your list) and enjoyed it a lot. We liked Mozhi hero Prithviraj in Sathum Podaathay too.

    Tamil audience are happy about the quality of tamil movies and it is only you who is upset about tamil movies. go and watch good tamil movies. you are also writting always tamil movies are not good. Then why it is the second bigesty cinefiled in india and third biggest cinefield in world. Hollywodd movies are also boring only some of the movies are good. Responds:

    If Tamil audiences are happy about the quality of tamil movies, why are so many Tamil movies faring badly at the boxoffice? Tamil film industry is not the second biggest. Telugu film industry is larger.

    I totally agree with your review but not the reply you gave to dilip.
    kollywood stands next to Bollywood in terms of its size and qulaity.. The average number of quality movies in tamil is more than Telugu industry.

    this shows that u r innocent,ignorant to the core abt indian cinefield.tamil cinefiled contributes to abt 35%of the indian boxoffice collection.hindi 40% telegu 25%.tamil is close second to hindi. so write reviews dont talk abt box office without knowing anything like u describe billa a blockbuster movie as a flop. Responds:

    1. We remain skeptical that the difference in box office collection between Hindi and Tamil films is just 5%.

    2. Go back to the headline of one of our posts on Billa – Ajith’s Billa – Flop, Ultimate Flop or Super Hit? As we wrote in the post we just referred to: Of course, in the absence of independent and reliable third party box office data it’s difficult for us to conclusively answer the question – whether Billa is a Flop, Ultimate Flop or a Super Hit at the box office.

    We never said Billa was a flop or superhit or blockbuster. We only raised questions about the boxoffice response to Billa.
