Good Crowd for Kanthasamy in U.S.

(via iPhone)


8.38PM – Just allowed into the hall.

Movie should start at about 8:45PM ET.

Usual whistles and loud howls. Noisy inside the hall.


It’s 8.15 PM here on the U.S. East Coast.

We are outside a theatre in the mid-Atlantic region waiting to be let in for the Kanthasamy movie.

The movie was supposed to start at 8.15PM but like all things Indian it’s delayed.

There are about 100 people waiting outside.

Most folks are speaking Tamil though there’s a smattering of Telugus too.

The theatre is screening both Tamil and Telugu versions of Kanthasamy (Vikram, Shriya).

The ticket price is $12.

    I forgot to ask in the previous post but how many people showed up for Kaminey? Responds:

    For the show we went to, a grand total of four.

    Si , quick the movie has got some mixed response from UK and a good response from Gulf. Responds:

    Kanthasamy is plain awful. Just back home.

    i just returned home after watching kantha, the film is good eneough and all people in the theatre enjoyed the movie . only vadivelu is the fault , his portions should have been deleted Responds:

    We disagree that the movie was any good. Au contraire, a piece of crap.

    Vadivelu was completely irrelevant to the movie.

    Full review coming soon.

    SI , the theatre in which i watched all were enjoying the film, but there are faults in this movie, overall i love chiyaan’s acting and DSP background music and 3 songs and the fights . these are enough for average tamil viewers like me .

    Tis is true, people enjoyed the movie in the theatre which i watched . Responds:

    We are skeptical that this movie will resonate with the audience beyond die-hard fans of Vikram.

    But humble as we eternally are, we concede that we could be wrong but we doubt it.

    we can know the results in 3 days abt the success of the movie , BTW , tamil review websites have a given a thumbsup for the movie . The movie could be appreicated by the rural audiences of TN more .

    Si : say abt the songs , not atleast a song (atleast average) u like in kanthaswamy Responds:

    Picturization of every song was so awful and the dances so pitiful that it robbed us of any joy we might have derived from the music.

    Hard to divorce picturization from the songs if you are watching the movie and not merely listening to it.

    Kandhaswamy, kapathu (god, please help). 😉

    Kanthaswamy kitta oru letter eluthi koyil la potta unmai therinjirum (our kanthaswamy will tell whether u r male/female if we write a letter and tie it in the temple. Responds:

    The real Kanthaswamy (God) is probably depressed now since his name is being dragged into the mud because of crappy movies like Kanthaswamy.

    BTW , what is sleeping timing everyday for u ? Responds:

    Between 2AM-3AM these days but we get up pretty late.

    Today we’re up late because we took a short nap in the afternoon.

    (BTW, if you read your history you’ll find that great folks in history have all taken afternoon naps – Gandhi, Churchill, Stalin et al. Not sure about Vikram though. 😉 )

    Vikram, sure, is into full-day-dreaming.

    Four posts dedicated for Kandhasamy. Wow. That shows how much you ‘enjoyed’ each moment of Kandhasamy. [You wanted to create a hype (just like kandhasamy) in SI site, by writing twits here 😉 ]. What if you are supposed to watch this movie again in your life? 😉

    Btw, by any chance, Pokkisham made its way there? Responds:

    1. Pokisham didn’t make it to the East Coast.

    2. You write: You wanted to create a hype (just like kandhasamy) in SI site,

    Us, create a hype?

    We are such pavum (innocent) creatures that people wonder how we survive in this bad kali yugam and you accuse us of resorting to hype-trickery. 🙁

    Ivvalavuthaan, Ulagam Ivvalavuthaan.

    3. You write: What if you are supposed to watch this movie again in your life?

    Won’t happen unless Navya Nair, Meera Jasmine and Vimala Raman jointly beseech us in person. 😉

    Btw, yavarum nalam is available in NetFlix. Responds:

    When we click on Yavarum Nalam in Netflix it’s adding 13B (the Hindi version) in the queue.
