We just watched the trailer of Kaavalan and were stunned at the bold step the Tamil film industry has taken.
Folks, Kaavalan has two clowns, not one as is usually the norm in Tamil movies.
Voila, two comedians in a Tamil movie. So nice, yaa.
Of course, the movie features Vadivelu with a weird mustache and making an ass of himself as he is wont to lately.
But Vadivelu is only the second comedian in Kaavalan. Playing second fiddle.
Guys, Kaavalan has a ‘first’ comedian too.
And this one also doubles as the hero of Kaavalan.
You guessed right, folks – our beloved Vijay is the comic hero of Kaavalan.
Sure, it’s a small step for Vijay but a giant leap for the Tamil film industry.
In Kaavalan, our Ilaya thalai-illatha-pathi does his best to prove the theory of Evolution.
If there are any still harboring doubts whether man evolved from the apes, Vijay sets all doubts aside with his simian antics in Kaavalan.
Whether when talking to Assin oops Asin while slinging a bag on his left side and mumbling moo, moo, moo as if addressing a puppy, or donning a silly-looking cap and making fake karate moves or yelling You Bloody Hell, Vijay provides enough comedic movements that at this rate Vadivelu and Vivek are bound to face lean times soon. Hell, who needs a separate comedian in a Tamil movie when we have Vijay as a comic hero.
Rocky Balboa Meets Vijay Malgoa
Much as we laughed out loud during the above scenes, it was the sight of Vijay in a casual dress in the middle of the boxing ring and delivering a knock out punch to the other guy that had us jumping on the chair and whistling out loud.
Hey, Rocky Balboa, you’d better watch out. Here comes Vijay Malgoa.
Ha ha ha.
As tears rolled down our cheeks, we laughed and laughed and laughed at Vijay in the boxing ring until we could laugh no more.
The fight scenes and Vijay’s weird positions only added to our comic delight.
In the Vinnai Kappan song scene in front of a temple, we remember seeing Vijay in a blue T-Shirt and even sporting a long, curled tail although we can’t be 100% sure of the tail given our advancing years and our late-night inebriation. 😉
You know, in Tamil Nadu during the annual Kavadi season we have devotees carrying the wooden Kavadi and singing and dancing like mad-men while bystanders often pour buckets of water on them to cool ’em down.
As we watched the Kaavalan trailer, we were tempted to hurl a huge pail of water at the screen to cool down Vijay. The fellow looked so tense as if all his recent flops were weighing down on him.
Paavum (poor fella).
Only with utmost difficulty could we restrain ourselves from flinging the water as we didn’t want to damage our Acer 20-inch LCD monitor!
If the short Kaavalan trailer is so sickeningly bad, just think of the torturous ordeal awaiting Tamil movie fans in the full-length film. 🙁
As they say in America, we feel your pain.
