Aalwar - Pongal Punishment for Tamil Movie Fans

Although it's still early 2007 and too early to make any predictions, it's safe to say that Aalwar has a very good chance of winning the award for the worst Tamil movie of the year.

A disgustingly bad movie, Aalwar is devoid of any semblance of entertainment value.

Aalwar’s saga of confusion and incompetence starts right at the beginning and continues till the last frame.

Besides a ridiculous story (what little there is that is), Aalwar also suffers from a mediocre performance by Ajith and awful fight scenes.

Aalwar is the birdbrained story of a silent, mortuary worker Shiva (Ajith), who goes around killing bad elements in society while donning the garb of various Hindu Gods such as Rama, Krishna and Narasimha. So, you end up with laughable scenes such as "Lord Rama" killing a bad guy with a pistol!

Into Shiva's life walks in Priya (Asin), the granddaughter of his landlady (Manorama). Although Shiva is indifferent to her overtures, Priya stubbornly tries to get him to like her.

What Priya or for that matter the medical student Madhu (Keerthi Chawla) find so attractive in the hero Shiva is hard to fathom. Even by Tamil movie standards, the Aalwar story has little logic.

Shades of Aalwar, particularly the attack on corrupt and bad elements of society, can be seen in earlier Tamil movies like Indian (1996) starring Kamal Haasan.

Ajith so overacts from the get-go that it's hard to believe that he's a veteran of nearly four dozen movies.

Also irksome are the fight scenes in Aalwar that are amazingly crude and amateurish. When it comes to action scenes, Aalwar convincingly demonstrates that Ajith is no match for his peers like Vijay, Simbhu or Surya.

The comedy scenes featuring Vivek are superfluous and hardly add anything of value to the movie.

If Aalwar has any saving graces at all, they come in the form of Asin's fine performance and passable music. But neither can save this doomed movie.

Aalwar's music does not rise to the level of the other 2007 Pongal release Pokiri but it's not wholly without merit either. Pidikkum and Sollitharavaa are two of the better songs.

In a telling sign of viewer distaste for Aalwar, at the CinePlaza movie house in North Bergen (New Jersey) the audience seemed so bored with Aalwar that one could hear a lot of chatter and cell phone conversations unlike at the hall showing Pokiri, where the audience was mostly quiet and engrossed in the movie.

With Aalwar turning into a Pongal Punishment and a horror show for Tamil movie fans, Pokiri is the hands-on winner in the Pongal race for providing quality Tamil entertainment. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
