Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram
Reviewer's Summary - Waste of Time

Language: Tamil
Year: April 2007
Actors: Dhanush, Meera Jasmine, Archana, Nasser, Santhanam, Monisha
Director: Suresh Krissna
Producer: Ramprasad
Written by: Prem
Music: Vijay Gurukiran

If Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram proves anything at all, it's that Dhanush is a better actor than his aging, balding father-in-law Rajnikanth.

But that's not enough to salvage this mediocre Tamil movie (a remake of the Kannada film Jogi) released in the U.S. on April 27.

The only other highlights of Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram are decent performances by Archana and Meera Jasmine.

A clumsy script, senseless violence, effete dialogs and mediocre music dooms Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram to the dunghill of Tamil movies.

While both Archana and Meera Jasmine are superior actors than Dhanush, we felt that Archana tended to go overboard at times in Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram, particularly in the second half.

Much of the violence in Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram is meaningless.

Director Suresh Krissna misses no opportunity in having any of the characters in Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram pick up the sickle, the weapon of choice in Tamil movies.

Unlike in Hollywood films like Martin Scorsese's recent movie Departed or that old gangster film Scarface, violence in Tamil movies is completely gratuituous. Most of the time, there is no artistic logic or rationale behind all the blood and gore in Tamil movie.

Azhagu Sundaram comes to Chennai from his small village in Tirunelveli district after his father's death. The poor lad's goal is to make enough money to get his mother a set of gold bangles. In the big city, Azhagu Sundaram is one day caught in the crossfire of vicious gang-warfare between two notorious thugs.

Azhagu Sundaram quickly earns a reputation as the deadliest of rowdies in the city after he kills the leader of one of the gangs.

Meera Jasmine plays the role of Shweta, a journalism student. But her character is poorly developed.

Another talented actor Nasser is wasted in an insignificant role as Kaderbhai, the owner of a small tea shop where Azhagu Sundaram finds work.

The music in Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram is nothing to write home about. Choreographed well, the dance-song Engeda Azaguhdhan featuring Meera Jasmine and Dhanush was perhaps the best of the lot.

Unlike that delightful movie Mozhi, the dialogs in Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram are amateurish and wholly lacking in charm.

Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram's other saving grace is that it's not as bad as two other recent Tamil movies - Mayakannadi and Unnale Unnale. But that's not saying much when most Tamil movies are so eggregiously bad as to be unwatchable.

Time and money spent watching Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram would be more fruitfully spent elsewhere. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
