Rowdy Rathore Review – Beastly Nonsense

Never let it be said that Hindi movies can’t plumb new lows.

The biggest, latest calamity to befall the already lowly Bollywood is the Southern invasion in the form of remakes and arrival of directors like Prabhudeva.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times.

Tamils and Telugus cannot make watchable movies, not for the next million years. Those cretinous filmmakers make Bollywood look almost sane.

And to remake Tamil and Telugu films or import their directors into Bollywood is to extend an open-ended invitation to Satan to wreak his mayhem in your quarters at will.

Bizarre Horror Show

Rowdy Rathore is the latest Bollywood remake affliction of a South Indian movie, one that bears the unmistakable trash-stamp of Tamil film director bozo Prabhudheva who’s now pissing in the Bollywood waters.

In every respect, Rowdy Rathore is garbage.

An asinine story that’s the Mount Everest of nonsense, acting that’s sub-mediocre, music that’s pitiful and the action scenes, oh, so disgustingly crude that they made me throw up the jalapeรฑo bagels I’d smuggled into the theatre.

For both Akshay Kumar and Bollywood, Rowdy Rathore marks a new low watermark.

If you think I’m engaging in hyperbole, see this sample video from Rowdy Rathore below.

Viewer discretion advised because the video is ugly beyond description.

Endless Nonsense

Only in Indian films do you, time and again, have this outrageously silly phenomenon of two guys looking exactly identical and with no explanation proffered for such strange similarities.

To take the travesty to new heights, in Rowdy Rathore the two ‘Akshay Kumars,’ although they live a thousand miles apart (one in Mumbai and the other in Bihar), are even shown wearing identical shirts.

As is the norm for such movies, one of the Akshay Kumars is a fearless police officer Vikram Rathore and the other a small-time thief Shiva, who, in the course of the movie, morphs into Rowdy Rathore.

Of course, the police officer is posted to a village Devgarh where a local hoodlum Babchi (Nasser) and his henchmen are terrorizing the neighborhood, raping, whipping, looting and killing at will.

Why is it that in Hindi movies, the villages are always Devgarh or Ramgarh.

Unceasing Horror

To return to the Rowdy Rathore balderdash, a police inspector’s wife is kidnapped and raped by Babchi’s son and what do you think the officer does? He humbly treks to Babchi’s house, with his children in tow, and even after seeing his wife there pleads with Babchi to help him locate his wife.

Never mind that this is the 21st century and the slavery and feudal culture of the sort depicted in the movie is claptrap even in lawless India.

No, the parade of nonsense never stops in Rowdy Rathore. After the police office Vikram Rathore (Akshay Kumar) dies, his lookalike Shiva casually slips into the police officer’s uniform and takes his place in Devgarh without any one being the wiser.

An ageing Bollywood star in the twilight of his stardom, Akshay Kumar acts like a retard in every sense of the term.

After two decades in the movie business and dozens of movies beneath his belt, Akshay Kumar thinks looking stern or silly is acting! In the entire movie, the police officer Akshay Kumar wears only a stern countenance while the petty criminal Akshay Kumar sports the look of one dropped on his head one too many times.

Akshay Kumar can’t dance, at least not with any grace, and his fight scenes are clumsy at best.

Even in the comic scenes, once Akshay’s forte, he left us unmoved.

The action scenes are so stupid they beggar belief.

No matter that the opponents come with heavy weaponry or number up to 50 they still are pulverized by one or the other Akshay Kumars.

The ugliest action scene is when Vikram Rathore is introduced, 63 minutes into the movie and he jumps from a high platform.

Wielding a Sudarshana Chakra attached to an iron club, he tears apart 50 thugs. At one point, we think he’s dead. Oh no, he’s just waiting for the rain to fall on his head and relieve him of the brain pressure. Voila, it starts raining raining and soon, he’s up and battling his foes again.

Whoever knew that those with Brain Pressure or at risk of Brain Hemorrhage can be cured by standing in the rain!

And what do you think the villainous Bapchi’s ape-like son does for entertainment – he gets policemen to voluntarily strip with the active encouragement of a minister.

Such are the dregs and the mire through which Rowdy Rathore drags us.

Our heroine Sonakshi Sinha’s claim to fame is to repeatedly expose her ample waist to the gaze of a billion lecherous Indians.

Like most Indian heroines, Sonakshi is a graceless, classless twit who gets roles through nepotism (her father is the former Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha and a present-day politician).

In any other part of the world, Sonakshi wouldn’t qualify to be an extra in a crowd scene but in India she’s a heroine.

Music is a ghastly assault on the eardrums, of a piece with the rest of the trashy movie.

Every song (including the much hyped Chinta Ta Ta Chita Chita featuring cameos by the southern monstrosity Vijay and the northern depravity Kareena Kapoor) and the accompanying picturization left us reeling in horror.

The worst was Dhadang dang dang (see above video).

Under Prabhudeva’s bizarre direction, Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha act like a pair of lemurs on an overdoes of arrack in the Dhadang dang dang song scene.

Shun the Garbage

In any other country in the world, a so-called director like Prabhudheva would receive nothing but spittle on his face when he steps out.

It’s the miracle of Incredible India that Prabhudheva has now taken his garbage to the wider arena of Bollywood from the smaller confines of Kollywood. strongly recommends that if you have anything in your head vaguely resembling a brain, and if you have any respect for your hard-earned money extend the middle finger to Rowdy Rathore.

    Just saw Rowdy Rathore trailer. I haven’t stopped laughing. I almost fell off my chair laughing when Akshay says “Rathore… Vikram Rathore..” towards the end of the trailer.

    OMG!! He’s totally miscast.

    He looks like a clown for the most part. Karthi as Rathnavel Pandian(in Siruthai) looked far more convincing than this clown in Rowdy Rathore.

    Not that the movie was a masterpiece or anything. If it weren’t for Karthi, Siruthai would have been a bumper flop. Responds:

    Surely a movie so bad as Rowdy Rathore can have only one outcome in Incredible India. – Superhit. ๐Ÿ™

  2. AC   June 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Everyday Indians get the opportunity to reject the mediocre, be it in movies, politics or cricket in the form of IPL, but they don’t take it.

    Going by the comments section of TOI’s review for Rathore, this movies is slated to be a superhit: Responds:

    You write: Everyday Indians get the opportunity to reject the mediocre, be it in movies, …, but they don’t take it.

    For once, you could have told me something new.

    It’s in India’s destiny to eagerly embrace the vile, the mediocre, the foul and occasionally even the fatal.

    Is it any surprise then that I laugh hysterically whenever I read gushing reports about “Incredible India,” “India as a Superpower,” “Shining India” or any other equally meaningless hyperbole.

    A nation is no more than its peoples and by that count the Indian soil is accursed.

  3. Hari Jr   June 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Howdy SI ?? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have seen Siruthai,, Is downright trashy but Karthi in my opinion was excellent in his role.

    Mnx542 rightly pointed out that if it weren’t for him, the film would have had a hard time even running for a week ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Karthi has a very good timing in his comedy roles and he was helped by Santhanam in this film as well for the comedy part, he was decent as the police too!! But, the film was horrible!!

    Shudder to think how bad would Hindi turn out to be because as far as i watched Siruthai, I m sure that both the roles were not wearing the same shirts ๐Ÿ˜‰ Couldn’t stop laughing at reading what you had mentioned there ๐Ÿ™‚ Responds:

    Hello Sweetie!

    I thought I’d seen Siruthai but I don’t find the review here –

    Maybe, I haven’t.

    Looks like the old SI is back.. yaaay Responds:

    As I have said so on countless occasions, old SI has been terminated with extreme prejudice.

    What you see is merely the ghost of old SI occasionally traipsing around the periphery of this blog pleading to be let in, but in vain.

  5. vjcool   June 3, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    You did review Siruthai and was disgusted by it.

    I watched the original telugu one ‘Vikramarkud’ and was surprised to be entertained by it, though it bordered on the vulgar and managed to stay on the other side of the line. The whole movie is here
    you can skim through it. Think Ravi Teja is for this kind of nonsense.. hmm well.. It was really entertaining or i got confused seeing Anuksha’s midriff. Responds:

    You write: The whole movie is here ….you can skim through it.

    I refuse to let the sewage of Brahmanandam’s appearance flow through my brain cells.

    That creature brings out the inner Raavan (no, not Abhishek Bachchan’s madcap version) in me to the fore.

    • AC   June 6, 2012 at 4:13 pm

      Just went through a few scenes in the movie on your link.

      My only response is “WTF?”

      • vjcool   June 11, 2012 at 2:02 am

        WTF it is, but the midriff is..well….

  6. araj   June 4, 2012 at 2:13 am

    It’s actually a remake of the telugu superhit ‘Vikramarkudu’ starring Ravi Teja and Anoushka…… ๐Ÿ™‚ Responds:

    1. True, but let no one claim that Andhra Pradesh is the sole bastion of insanity in Mera Bharat Mahaan.

    According to the good folks at Wiki, Vikramarkudu (Telugu)—>Siruthai (Tamil)—>Veera Madakari (Kannada)—>Rowdy Rathore (Hindi)—>Bikram Singha: The Lion Is Back (Bengali).

    Not to forget the dubbed versions, Vikramathithya (Malayalam) and Vikram Singh Rathore IPS (Bhojpuri).

    2. In America, they say all trends start in California and then spread East.

    In India, it seems depravity rears its head first in Andhra Pradesh and quickly spreads South, North, West and East. ๐Ÿ™

    • Naveen   June 5, 2012 at 1:18 am

      Only Bathmasri Dr. Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam will save the day for Indian movies!

      The next nonsense from his stables is that the producer of the Lord of the Rings kenji ketadhunale Kamal will act and direct in a movie for him. ๐Ÿ™‚ Responds:

      Ha ha ha.

      I heard Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson and my babe Jennifer Lawrence are fighting and scratching each other’s eyes out in a ‘Hunger Games’ like contest for the privilege of acting opposite Bathmasri Dr.Ulaga Madayan.

      Ulaga Madayan’s last film Manmadan Ambu was a stolen depravity.

      • Mnx542   June 5, 2012 at 2:17 am

        I don’t know if I’ve said this before, but most of Kamal’s movies which he directed or produced were stolen works. I wouldn’t be surprised if Vishwaroopam is just another rip off.

        But if the news in Naveen’s link is true, then it’s highly likely it’s an original script.

        My opinion is that Hollywood producers aren’t fools to appreciate stolen shit(if the info in the link is true).!! Responds:

        Unless Kamal Haasan finances the movie, no one in Hollywood is going to touch this buffoon with a bargepole.

        By international standards, Kamal is currently no better than a chimp with affected mannerisms. But good enough for the clueless Indian jackasses aka fans.

        • Naveen   June 5, 2012 at 12:52 pm

          Remakes and stolen plots notwithstanding, Kamal was still one of the few who stood apart in the filthy waters of Tamil Cinema but off late he has been making one bad movie after the other robbing him of whatever credibility he had earned.

          I still like his Hey Ram, Anbe Sivam, Virumaandi, Aboorva Sahodharargal and some of the comedies.

          Many of his hit movies were stolen from Hollywood but as much as I can remember there aren’t many copies among the those he directed/produced. This isn’t to say he is innocent because even for those stolen movies even if he did not produce/direct it, he went on to take story / screenplay credit.

        • Mnx542   June 7, 2012 at 12:56 am

          @ SI: “By international standards, Kamal is currently no better than a chimp with affected mannerisms”

          Currently, I would say yes.

          But the guy’s got it in him to deliver a solid movie. Hey Ram was fantastic and I loved his movies like Moondram Pirai, Guna, Anbe Sivam, Virumaandi etc.

          So let’s just wait for Vishwaroopam to release. Not having any high hopes though.

          Btw, I’ve heard Anbe Sivam was a remake of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Not sure. According to wiki, Virumandi is a rip off, shameless copy of Life of David Gale.

          I just don’t know why it’s so difficult for these idiots to give credit to the original makers. I believe copyrights for Hollywood movies will be very expensive.

          At least, give credit for the original makers if you’re not going to acquire the copyrights.


          Given the audience ‘taste’ lately, the only way Kamal Haasan can make a dent now is to do a Dabanng or Rowdy Rathore kind of movie with a young babe like Sonakshi, Meenakshi or Vishalakshi.

          • Naveen   June 7, 2012 at 12:33 pm

            I have seen both Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Life of David Gale.

            To say that Anbe Sivam is a copy would be like saying any movie with two contrasting personalitites coming together, is a copy of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Robert Downey Jr.’s Due Date and several other films would be a copy with that criteria.

            Virumaandi and Life of David Gale have nothing in common except that a journalist investigates the story of a prisoner facing death sentence. It was said that the screenplay style of Virumaandi was similar to Rashomon but the story itself was different.

            In my opinion, while Kamal was good Pasupathy’s acting was better in Virumaandi. Also, Kamal as the director was better than Kamal the actor in that film.


            Very true, Pasupathy ate Kamal’s lunch in Virumandi.

          • Naveen   June 7, 2012 at 12:59 pm

            Has SI watched Tamil version of Mumbai Xpress? Pasupathy does the same to Kamal in the first half of the movie. Pretty much dominates the show.

            It is a slapstick comedy with dry humor that didnt find any much patronage with the audience. ๐Ÿ™‚

            I dunno if SI will like it or not but it is probably worth a watch if you come across the dvd…


            No, only the horrid Hindi version.

            My abiding memory of Mumbai Xpress is of a monkey operating a massive crane –

            No surprise considering the Mumbai Xpress story & screenplay are by a chimp aka Kamal Haasan.

          • Mnx542   June 7, 2012 at 11:58 pm


            Like I said, I just came across reports on the net that it was a remake of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Glad that it was original.

            About Life of David Gale, from what I read in wikipedia, the broad storyline was quite similar.. that of a journalist investigating the story of a prisoner who was accused of a crime, the rape and murder of a woman(wife in Virumandi and some other girl in LODG). I didn’t read beyond this point but I assume that like in Virumandi, it wasn’t Gale who committed the murder. Also, both protagonists are against capital punishment.

            Maybe it wasn’t outright theft, but the points mentioned above certainly do indicate that Virumandi’s source of inspiration is LODG. I don’t think that it was mere coincidence.

          • Naveen   June 8, 2012 at 2:13 am

            @Mnx – LODG is all about a journalist investigating a prisoner on death roll. Whether he commited the crime or not forms the rest of the plot.

            In Virumandi, the journalist is a mere interviewer – a passive role. She serves as a prop to tell the audience the story of what happened. The story is show from two view points (Pasupathy and Kamal) and it has nothing in common to LODG.

            The only common thing is both movies have a prisoner on death roll and a journalist who interviews them. It is possible that this premise was taken from LODG but as a whole the two movies have nothing in common. You should watch and decide.

          • Mnx542   June 8, 2012 at 3:06 am


            Well, as you’ve seen both movies, you obviously know better. Instead of just speculating by seeing things in the net, I guess it’s better if I watch the movie and decide for myself.

          • Naveen   June 7, 2012 at 12:50 pm

            Giving credit without formally buying remake rights would be admission of theft.

            Our guys may be incapable of creating anything new but definitely not stupid ๐Ÿ˜‰


            Yes, blatant thievery requires a higher order of intelligence. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Mnx542   June 8, 2012 at 12:02 am

            @SI and Naveen

            Here’s the official trailer of Vishwaroopam.

            I don’t find it extra-ordinary but somehow, I feel Vishwaroopam will not turn out to be a disappointment like Manmadhan Ambu. From what we see in the trailer, the action seems decent. Hope it’d be the same for the rest like acting, story, screenplay etc..!!

            If it turns out to be yet another dud like Manmadhan Ambu, Kamal can bid goodbye to his acting career ๐Ÿ˜›


            1. Watched the above Vishwaroopam trailer twice.

            Nothing we’ve seen in it heralds anything remotely interesting.

            Of course, it could be a bad trailer and the movie could well turn out to be the next monsterpiece Masterpiece that shatters all records.

            2. You write: From what we see in the trailer, the action seems decent.

            Good Lord, what are you smoking.

            There’s no action in the trailer even remotely out of the ordinary.

            Is the action shown in the trailer even one-twentieth what we see in a Bourne, MI, Safe House or any of the major Hollywood productions? Most definitely not.

            Indians should not even attempt to compete/focus on the action front because that’s a waste of time given the lack of resources and inexperience of our technicians. Hollywood is light-years ahead on the action side and anything our jokers attempt would pale into insignificance.

            In my not-so-humble opinion, Indians should strive to compete on acting, story and screenplay. The French, the Italians, the Chinese, the South Koreans and the Mexicans do it successfully.

            But if Rowdy Rathore, Dabbanng etc are anything to go by that ain’t gonna happen.

            Nobody, nobody except Indians watch the garbage churned out by the thieving buffoons in Bollywood, Kollywood or Tollywood.

            Go to Ritz 5 in Philly, Rave in Voorhees (NJ) or IFC or Lincoln Plaza in NYC…the French, Russian, Korean etc movies in those theatres attract a decent crowd. But if you go to Indian movies in Regal or AMC the only clowns inside are the desis.

          • Naveen   June 8, 2012 at 2:21 am

            Just saw the trailer.

            For all the hype and hoopla the trailer is pretty average by any standards. I really hope the movie is much better because I will most likely end up watching it anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚

            The only part that was a little interesting was the sound of bullet matching the Kathak beats.

            All this “Neenga Nallavara Kettavara” “I am the Hero and the Villain” is so mundane. Billa 2 trailer was better in comparison.

          • Mnx542   June 8, 2012 at 3:51 am


            “I really hope the movie is much better because I will most likely end up watching it anyway! :-)”

            So do I :P.. I’ll definitely end up watching.

            “The only part that was a little interesting was the sound of bullet matching the Kathak beats”

            A bit funny as well.

            “All this โ€œNeenga Nallavara Kettavaraโ€ โ€œI am the Hero and the Villainโ€ is so mundane. Billa 2 trailer was better in comparison”

            you left out “indha kadhaila ellarukume double role” :P… The “neenga nallavara kettavara” bit seems to be a reference to Nayagan.

            But we can’t judge a movie by it’s trailer. Let’s wait for the movie to release. Acc to wiki, it releases next month..!

            Yes, Billa 2 trailer was better in comparison. For the first time in my life, I’m eagerly waiting for an Ajith movie with expectations that it’d be a good entertainer. well, we’ll know in about 2 weeks.

          • Dr.Logu   June 8, 2012 at 8:26 am

            Yes I agree with you Naveen and SI, the trailer has nothing spectacular given the hype and hoopla except a glimpse of Andrea and the other one not sure of her name to drool…

            Another point I noticed is kamal’s recent obsession with the US and its accent…I hope it doesnt turn out to be another Dasavatharam

          • Naveen   June 8, 2012 at 1:34 pm

            Dasavatharam??? on no! I can’t survive another freakshow!

            If that bugger delivers another Dasavatharam then I am done with him.

          • Mnx542   June 9, 2012 at 5:37 am

            If this is going to be another dud, the tamil audience themselves will bid adieu to Kamal ๐Ÿ˜›

            But these are people who hail Vijay as superstar, Villu as a James Bondy style thriller. So Kamal just might get away.

          • Mnx542   June 8, 2012 at 3:40 am


            “Nothing weโ€™ve seen in it heralds anything remotely interesting.”

            Agree. Like I said, it wasn’t anything extra-ordinary, but enough to get Indians on a high ๐Ÿ˜›

            “Of course, it could be a bad trailer and the movie could well turn out to be the next monsterpiece Masterpiece that shatters all records.”

            Well, notwithstanding your sarcasm, I really do hope the movie turns out to be good.

            “Good Lord, what are you smoking.

            Thereโ€™s no action in the trailer even remotely out of the ordinary”

            Who said anything about “extra-ordinary action sequences” and the like???.. When I say decent when talking about Indian movies, read “decent, by Indian standards(which isn’t much anyway)”..!!

            “Is the action shown in the trailer even one-twentieth what we see in a Bourne, MI, Safe House or any of the major Hollywood productions? Most definitely not.”

            Definitely not, yes. But you’re comparing a Rs.150 cr movie with movies that were made on more than twice(even thrice or more) the budget of Vishwaroopam. MI 1 and Safe House were made on a budget of more than $80 million, which is currently more than Rs. 440 cr…!!

            Hollywood has loads and loads of money than the entire Indian film industry combined. Of course, most Indians would feel the action sequences in Endhiran, Ra.One etc are almost on par with hollywood, but that’s bull shit. Indian movies can never be on par with Hollywood or even Chinese, Japanese or Korean film industries either, partly because we don’t have the money to produce such movies and mostly because Indians are too unimaginative and lack even a semblance of creativity (these guys still haven’t let go of the age old formula.. one guys sends dozens of thugs flying and emerging victorious)

            “Indians should not even attempt to compete/focus on the action front because thatโ€™s a waste of time given the lack of resources and inexperience of our technicians. Hollywood is light-years ahead on the action side and anything our jokers attempt would pale into insignificance.”

            Agree 100%. Even if we had the resources, we lack the creativity to produce solid action entertainers. Even our audience… After watching that monstrosity Endhiran, I overheard a group making comments like “last 15 mins equals Hollywood… Amazing action” etc.. Wonder if these guys ever watched a Hollywood movie in their life.

            “In my not-so-humble opinion, Indians should strive to compete on acting, story and screenplay”

            No, even that’s not going to happen, at least not in our lifetime. ๐Ÿ˜›


            I doubt even Indians or Tamils are going to get on a high with this mediocre trailer unless there’s some behind-the-scenes orchestrated publiShitty in ‘friendly’ web sites and newspapers.

            If the Vishwaroopam trailer is in any way the harbinger of the movie, then we’re in for another piece of junk from Ulaga Madayan.

            A personal review of a trailer of a Tamil movie I just watched recently.

            Naan E Trailer Review- Laughable Disgusting Shit

            The trailer:


            โ€œPlease do corrections and rephrase this in your own style if found necessaryโ€

            If there was any movie trailer in recent times that offended my intellectual sensibilities, it should be this one. And not surprisingly, the director of this film is that Telugu SS Rajamouli, who made that masala crap Maaviran(Tamil dubbing of Telugu Maghadeera), which was gripping only in the last 30 minutes.

            This film trailer has shit written all over it. The story is revealed very clearly in the trailer itself. Is this the way a trailer of a film should be?

            A scene of this trailer features our hero who transforms into a housefly and topples a car. Though I was amused by the scene and the animation, the scene felt disgusting afterwards.

            Another disgusting or bland scene of this trailer features the heroine looking blank at the villain through the window. Will you show some expressions please?

            And that heroine turns to be Samantha who surprised me with her performance in her previous film โ€œBaana Kathadiโ€.

            And will not the villain of this foul smelling masterpiece not use โ€œHITโ€ to kill the housefly (E)?

            Anyways, the audience will come and laugh at everything in this yet to be released movie which also includes this buffoon.

          • Mnx542   June 9, 2012 at 5:45 am


            Disgusting piece of shit. To top it all, the film’s story is clearly revealed in the trailer itself. Saves valuable time and money for the audience.

            Did anyone u know watch the movie?

            “I doubt even Indians or Tamils are going to get on a high with this mediocre trailer”

            Unfortunately, they are already raving about the “awesome” trailer. ๐Ÿ™

            Saw the trailer.

            Wouldn’t have high hopes for this movie.

            Seems like another good ol’ fashioned ego trip based around multiple identities, an idรฉe fixe of Kamal’s.

            Action seemed alright, but the dialogues sounded absolutely inane.


            You write: Action seemed alright, ….

            Am I the one doing all the drinking or have you Lassi-sipping Canadians started adulterating your Lassis?

            The action scenes were f*king 25 naya-paisa stuff.

            Nothing that you, I and my Indian maid-servant (ha, ha, ha) haven’t seen in a thousand movies.

          • AC   June 11, 2012 at 10:35 pm

            Hahaha! Well… its not spectacular, but (barely) ok.

            You have to admit its an improvement over something like this:



            Say what you will but me thinking Tamils missed Evolution boat.

          • Naveen   June 11, 2012 at 11:40 pm

            I agree with AC.

            Only if you set your baseline standards to the level of the Ramarajan fight can you find anything remotely decent in that trailer.


            As I said earlier (if I didn’t, consider it said), that Ramarajan trailer is not for human consumption!

            Except for the Indian chutiyas, nobody on this planet would ever watch these Indian movies garbage.

            Just now watched Vishwaaropam trailer.

            Was able to connect with the trailer for most parts but after that girl said “Neenga nallavara kettavara”, it somehow did not feel great(slightly like a mess).

            By the way,Kamal having plasters on his head reminded me of Dasavatharam where he also plaster.

            Some scenes in this film reminded me of “True Lies”.

            Anyways one could come to conclusion only after watching it.


            I can safely say that the plot is certainly something that hasn’t been attempted in Indian cinema, or world cinema, for that matter.
            – Vishwaroopam actress Pooja Kumar

            Something that hasn’t been attempted in Indian cinema, or world cinema?

            BTW, didn’t they say the same thing about Vijay’s magnum ops Kuruvi and Villu? ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Naveen   June 15, 2012 at 11:45 am

            yeah yeah.. Kuruvi and Villu are unparalleled masterpieces. ๐Ÿ˜€


            I’m NOT joking.

            Villu is not just a masterpiece but the mother of masterpieces.

            Here read Sify’s brilliant review of Villu:

            If you’re looking to chill out this Pongal, try Villu. It is the mother of all masalas. Ranging through a wide field of comedy, action, songs, exotic locations and heavy sentiments, the film will appeal to a cross spectrum of audiences.

            What works in its favour is the star cast, packaging and look of the film.

            It is the most stylish Vijay film ever made.

            …..The Vijay-Nayanthara jodi scorches the screen and they have great chemistry. Vijay looks sensational and is an absolute delight to watch. He is magical.

            ….On the whole, the film is a rip-roaring rocker.

            New SI at the helm without the ghost of old SI? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Indians unabashed love for junk is proved once again Responds:

    There’s a Sanskrit saying that seems apposite here:

    Yatha Raja Bollywood, thatha Praja (Indian Moviegoers are as sick as the Indian Moviemakers).

    • Naveen   June 5, 2012 at 1:10 am

      Replace Yatha and Thatha with “Otha” and the saying will still hold good! Responds:

        Hahaha Otha ๐Ÿ˜› kudos to u Naveen ๐Ÿ™‚

    Off topic:

    Can you please see and review 7G Rainbow Colony, Kaadhal & Raam ??

    These films are good and I believe you will find favour with them

    Whats your say ?? ๐Ÿ™‚ Responds:

    I have seen 7G…different but unsure if it’s a good movie.

    • Mnx542   June 6, 2012 at 12:46 pm

      I remember the old SI saying they liked the movie. Responds:

      Old SI was not sure.

      This is what Old SI wrote about 7G two years back.

  9. Hari Jr   June 6, 2012 at 3:06 pm

    7G and the others that I mentioned above are good ones.

    Especially the songs of Raam and 7G are excellent ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have you seen the other 2 movies ?? Responds:

    Likely not.

    Bourne Legacy theatrical trailer..

    What do u think? Responds:

    1. Trailer ain’t bad.

    But a Bourne movie without Bourne is kinda like a Bond film without 007 or a trashy Tamil movie without that Ultimate ‘Kuppathotti‘ Star Ajith.

    Makes no sense to me.

    2. Does Jeremy Renner have the screen presence for a Jason Bourne movie even if he’s not playing Bourne?

    We won’t know until we see him on the big screen.

    3. The key operatives in the Bourne movies seem to be getting smaller & I don’t like it.

    Matt Damon 5′ 10″

    Jeremy Renner 5’ 9″

    At this rate, we’ll have Danny DeVito playing Bourne in two years.

    • Mnx542   June 12, 2012 at 6:58 am

      1) “But a Bourne movie without Bourne is kinda like a Bond film without 007 or a trashy Tamil movie without that Ultimate โ€˜Kuppathottiโ€˜ Star Ajith. ”

      Bond film without a 007, I can agree… but the next one.. ur joking right?? ๐Ÿ˜›

      Btw, the reason this movie has a ‘Bourne’ in the title is because the events of this movie are triggered by the events in the previous movies, especially ultimatum.. well, atleast that’s what the internet says!!

      2) “Does Jeremy Renner have the screen presence for a Jason Bourne movie even if heโ€™s not playing Bourne?

      We wonโ€™t know until we see him on the big screen”

      Yes, we’ll know in less than a month.. I liked him in MI 4.. Btw, I guess he’s also there in Hurt Locker, which the old SI had reviewed..!!

      I feel Renner has it in him..!! Responds:

      Tired of these endless bang-bang, chase-chase, jump-jump, scream-scream action movies.

      Longing to see a movie with a neat story like Michel Hazanavicius The Artist.

      • Mnx542   June 18, 2012 at 11:53 am

        “Longing to see a movie with a neat story like Michel Hazanavicius The Artist”

        Well, what is stopping you? Responds:

        Waiting for Vishwaroopam! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Mnx542   June 18, 2012 at 11:54 am

        “Tired of these endless bang-bang, chase-chase, jump-jump, scream-scream action movies”

        For people like me fed up of the garbage here, these movies from Hollywood are a welcome relief..!! Responds:

        Watched a nice Russian crime movie Brother last night.

        Beri good.
