Tid-bits about Naan Kadavul.
 
I read in a magazine - while they were shooting NK in Kasi - Arya was supposed to sit near the banks of the river and was to meditate.  The tourists went up to Arya and fall on his feet for blessings.LOL
 
If that is not enough, Pooja's role was to sit next to a bus-stop and was to beg. At the end of the day, she managed to collect RS21. ROFL
 
Both Arya and Pooja must have been so good, that they managed to hoodwink the public. LOLLOLLOL  Good for them.

I was telling my mum yesterday, after watching some trailers of Padikathavan.  "How long these directors are going to bring in brainless movies - poor bad boy hero meets rich educated sexy beautiful woman and low behold they are in love?"  This is crap, like the educated woman is going to do that.
 
Guess what my mum said........ you know, it is the trend now ongoing in India, educated girls are falling in love with goofoons/adiyal etc.  All these were influenced by the movies they watch.ROFL
 
Doh...... I spoke too soon.

Chennai Box Office (April 10-12)

Surya's Ayan seems to be going from strength to strength, and in its second weekend is doing the same 92 percent from 14 screens that it did in the first week! Amazing! At number two is Vin Diesel's Fast & Furious-4, the best Hollywood opening of the year in Chennai. In the third position is Ananda Thandavam, which due to bad reviews has taken a below average opening and is struggling to survive. Yaavarum Nalam is still strong at the multiplexes and is at number four, while Pattalam hangs on to the fifth position.

Note : Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film

Anandha Thandavam Movie Review
Anandha Thandavam - All logic and no magic
IndiaGlitz  [Tuesday, April 14, 2009]

Sujatha may have left the world. But his legacy still continues. The man who brought freshness in Tamil cinema with his pen holds a unique place in Tamil literature as well as the tinsel town.

Joining the long list of Sujatha's work being recreated on silver screen is 'Anandha Thandavam'. Unlike his sci-fi or thrillers, the movie is laced with romance and the travails of a youth struck by a cupid's arrow. Director Gandhi Krishna, who came out with 'Chellame', has brought to life Sujatha's popular novel "Privom Sandhippom". It chronicles the journey of a young man from Amba Samudhiram to America.

No doubt Gandhi Krishna has consciously chosen not to make any cinematic compromise and retain the essence of the novel. However in achieving the mission, he misses out providing necessary pep and life in the screenplay. 'Anandha Thandavam' leaves an impact only in parts thanks mainly to Sujatha.

Raghupathy (Siddharth) is an engineering graduate in Amba Samudhiram. He decides to commit suicide having failed in his romance. Flashback reveals that his father Govindaraj (Kitty) works as engineer in a dam in the area and Raghu falls in love with Madhumitha (Tamannah), a spoiled brat and daughter of Govindaraj's boss.

However his father suspects the whole idea behind arranging a hurried marriage of his son with Madhumitha. As expected by him, Madhumitha's father changes his mind and in stead marries his daughter with Radhakrishnan (Rishi), a rich man, who runs business in USA.  Dejected by the betrayal, Raghu decides to end his life. Eventually he gets saved. His father gives his courage and sends him to USA for higher studies. He comes across Madhumitha again in USA. And the old romance is rekindled. Meanwhile, Rathna (Rukmani), who was born and brought up in USA, falls for Raghu. What happens eventually in this interesting triangle of love is the climax.

Siddharth as Raghu is ok. But he struggles a lot especially in emotional scenes. Tamannah's characterisation is more puzzling. She is shown as spoiled brat and an idiot in the movie. Also the onscreen chemistry between the lead pair is sorely missed. Kitty makes a comeback to acting after a brief while only to leave an impact.

But the scene-stealer is Rukmani. She enthralled everyone playing a blood role in 'Bomallattam'. She continues her good run here too. The cast also include Five Star Krishna, dance master Raghuram among others.

Cinematography by Jeeva Shankar captures Amba Samudhiram well. But G V Prakash's music is disappointing.

Much was expected from 'Anandha Thandavam'. Unfortunately it begins as a good ride only to lose its way and end in clichd manner.

 have anyone watched this movie....? it was the last script Suhatha wrote before he died..this movie is not that bad as they have written in the reviews acoording to a friend who have seen thisSmile It also seems to be average hit based on Jags boxoffice report for the last weekWink
