I thought I wouldn't have time to post my reviews but couldn't resist
NOTE SOME of the CONTENT MAY SPOIL FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T WATCHED YET.
Though I guess most have been discussed already
Dong Lee's Introduction (Johnny Tri Nguyen) was well received as well. After that almost everyone cracked up for the funny scenes . I thought the movie was going to be all serious but I guess there was a sense of humour as well at some point .
In the first part, I felt that there were too many songs
. Although we enjoyed all the scenaries and picturization, atleast one song could have been reserved for later on
Then things got a bit more serious yet none of us felt bored at any point. It was engaging...!!! Dong Lee's use of hypnotism, however, was a tat bit too much
. It felt like he was using that power to control everyone's mind, especially during the car pile up scene. It seemed a bit gruesome at one point .
And I agree Aravid (Surya's character) seemed a bit lost in second part. Not sure if that was intentional, since he is a circus artist and he wouldn't know everything that a scientist does ...
[ SPOILER DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED IT ] But when Dong Lee and Aravind meet for the first time, we all cheered loud , since that was Dong's first failure at controling minds.!!
Surya was AMAZINGGG!!!! He took great effort and portrayed the emotions of Bhodi Dharman and also the circus artist, Arvind, especially in the first part and the climax
. He was very built and it was a joy to watch
... no words can't describe it!!!
Shruthi hassan was awesome as well
... Hats off to her for dubbing her own voice
!!! She surely did great in this movie and acted well... many were full of praises for her, especially since this is her first tamil movie
Johnny Tri Nguyen.. Aaah... he was a great looking chap and did very well!! His body language and the way he walked
truely fit the character of Dong Lee! He will surely go places in Indian Cinema...
... !!! He was the perfect fit for this role
and many of us just wanted to get into the screen and stop this villain from doing the damage
There are other characters too, but the above three stood out well!
Now I don't know if its me or something, but here the movie was only 2 1/2 hours, so am assuming they cut down some stuff
With regards to things that would have been made better... the use of hypnotism by Dong Lee during the car pile up scene could have been reduced a bit! And the songs could have been spread apart! And it wouldn't have hurt to add a bit of comedy in the latter part, but I guess it would have taken the seriousness out of the scenes
, so i guess it was fine the way it is... The ending seemed rushed
. So in my opinion, they could have focused a bit more on the ending part, following the climax fight scene (which was amazinggg), things would have been a bit better for audience! They could have also showed what happened to some of the other characters (the other baddies... and those who helped do the research).
A number of us wanted to go and watch the movie again
, and since they only play the movie twice, I have to wait for DVD to come out! So for my city people, I guess we wouldn't mind watching it again
