I enjoyed it, guys. Right from the beginning until the end. The way Pasupathy interacts with his kids reminded me of Rajkiran in Thavamai Thavam Irunthu. Meena was excellent as his foil, soft-spoken, starstruck with Rajni but still Pasupathy's soulmate.
 
You know what the surprise of the film was? Rajni. Really good acting on his part, something I hadn't seen since Annamalai. The last scene was so touching that you can't help shedding tears.
 
Waste - Vadivelu ( I don't know why people thought his humour was the highlight of the film) and Nayantara (who was there just to flaunt her body). But I really enjoyed the "making" of Chandramukhi 2.

I enjoyed the movie as well.  Agree with K, regards to the above posting.
 
I am a fan of Rajni, and I am glad he took a step back and let the whole film to focus on friendship.  Nayan came as herself in that movie.   Basically she had no roles to do, except to be at the location for the shooting.  I liked the part, where she greets Rajni, "hello sar..." and Rajni pretends to ignore her, and when she found out he was fooling, she starts to chase, it was so sweet.
 
Meena was sweet as well.  She was good.  I think on the whole, except for Vadivelu's stupid comedy which was sick, I enjoyed the whole movie. 
 
Btw, yesterday, I watched a bit of Kuselan's Audio in Suntv.  Rajni had given away 15lakhs from his pocket to the technicians.  Saw his daughter, and she looked gorgeous.  My mum told me she appeared for few secs in the song Cinema, Cinema.
 
You have to see this movie with an open mind.  That is what I did and enjoyed myself tremendously. 
 
My verdict.  Thumbs Up

Heard Meena's terribly diappointed with the way the movie's being hilited as  a Nayantara one.....nobody saw Meena's head on the posters, did they?Wink
 
Priyadarshan has lashed out at P Vasu for focussing more on Rajni and thus sopiling the movie, the same way he did with Chandramukhi. He's promised tht in his Billoo Barber, SRK 'll appear only towards the end(just as Mammooty did in the Mal original) and tht the movie will be all in all an Irfan Khan one.

Well, if you compare Kuselan with the Mallu version, definitely the Mallu version is superior. Like I said, Vasu tends to idolise Rajni. Who knows, maybe in someone else's hands, the film would have been much better.

But Kuselan, taken on its own, is a pleasant film. The focus on Rajni gave it a documentary-ish feel e.g, when Ashok Kumar is asked why he disappears to Himalaya, when is he venturing into politics etc.

I am not surprised why Meena is miffed, but Nayantara was smokin', totally irrelevant to the movie, but hey, flesh sells.Dead

Pyramid saaminathan says it made 20 crore in the first week. My dad told me last sunday itself that it flopped in karnataka. He told me that the distributors put in a lot of money and lost. As did my brother, who just landed.
