I kept forwarding the movie. 2 hour movie and i watched it in one hour. What happen to Cheran nowdays?? D'oh
 
Oh dear ....... I saw this movie was on the Top 10 list (it was No. 6 I think) yesterday in Astro, and I thought of getting one for myself.  Thanks for the advice Netz.
 
One problem is Cheran wants to act himself in all his movies.  He should concentrate to be behind cameras.

Durai Movie Review
Durai - Arjun's action all the way
IndiaGlitz  [Friday, October 03, 2008]

Loads of action is the hallmark of any Arjun film. Durai is no different from his routine commercial action entertainers, where he takes on baddies, fights corrupt system and romances heroines.

Director A Venkatesh seemingly inspired by Hollywood flicks like Bourne Identity and Gladiator, has dished out an action extravaganza with Arjun by his side.

Arjun steals the thunder with his action sequences. He is there everywhere on the screen. As a macho-man, he fits the role admiringly well. 'Durai' is a perfect example of how a racy theme could be presented with commercial masala elements.

Vivek's comedy is a major letdown. He reminds one of Vadivelu, who gets thrashed by people around for his acts. Heroines Gajala and Keerath have nothing much to do. The former plays Arjun's wife, who gets killed by a gang. Vishwanath plays an honest politician, whose character is a pivotal part in the movie.

D Imman has remixed Ilayaraja's Raja Rajathi Rajanindha Raja. Otherwise, the songs are typical of Imman - loud and westernized.

Raja (Arjun) works with a cook Arusuvai Ambi (Vivek). Raja c omes across Anjali (Keerat), who catches his interest. She falls for Raja.

But Raja cannot remember anything of his past. All he recollects are vague images and memories that disturb him in his sleep. After a sequence of events and chase by rowdies, Raja collects his past.

Raja, a year ago was Durai, who was the close associate of honest politician Deivanayagam (K Viswanath). Durai who leads a happy life with his wife (Gajala) and his son, is hesitant to assume the post.

Anjali (Keerat), a reporter, pursues him for interviews and falls in love. Deivanayagam gets killed and the blame falls on Durai.

His wife and son are murdered. Eventually, Durai alias Raja takes on his enemies cracks the truth behind Deivanayakam's death. Action oozing all the way.

Produced by Thenappan, 'Durai' is a movie for die-hard Arjun fans.

have anyone seen this movie?? well....Its a typical movie of Arjun according to my friend who saw this...LOL

If anyone has not seen Jeyam Kondein, then you should.
 
 The story is about a conflict between a man and his half sister who he had no knowledge of.  But the half sister knows about him.  Some of the actors are Vinay, Bhavana, Lekha (I believe she is new and she has Monal's look), Vivek, Livingstone, a couple of other comedienes, although most of actors / actresses'  real name I do not know.  Embarrassed  Malavika (TKV from Arasi), Usha from Kolangal and some new actors.
 
Meli, has given the review before so I won't expand on it otherwise you will loose the essence of the story.  Although there are some comedy which I really liked and I want to tell out but then it will spoil the story.  Big smile
 
What  I liked about the movie.  The actors/actresses are of good cast.  Good acting by each and everyone.  Even this guy who was acting like gangster, his wife, were good in their acting and they looked new to me.  The father inlaw (thalaivasal vijay) and his showmanship.  Malavika.  Everyone's acting was simply good.  Nothing overdramatic about it.  Music was very nice.   I really liked them all.  I would not hesitate to hear them all over again.  The comedy was really good and I was laughing away at 5 am in the morning. The emotions shown by all them was good.  Scenries, background, locations were all excellent.  I also liked there was no flashback.  The father's relationship with the second wife was a mystery till the end.
 
What I did not like about the movie - on personal note - Vinay looked haggard.  I wish he was clean shaved.  I think it is high time Vivek quit being a "youth" .  It does not suit him anymore.  As friend is well expected but youth??? hmmmmmm...... there are other comediennes who are more youthful.  They should be given a chance to act as youth.  It irritates the hell out of me to see Vivek/Vadivelu get the 'youth' criteria even though they were no where near and cannot carry out the youth act very well.
 
The movie was a bit slow.  I wish they had given more emphasis on brother-sister relationship than emphasis on fights.  It was unnecessary.  They should have given more scenes for romance/friendship etc.
 
One the whole the movie was really good.  Star and a half.  Clap
