Okay ladies, our first movie of pongal release is here:

Pazhani

Cast : Bharath, Kajal Agarwal, Kushboo

Direction: Perarasu

Music: Srikanth Deva

Production: Sakthi Chidambaram

In the fast changing world of Tamil cinema, where offbeat themes have
become the order of the day and slick, stylish presentation a given, one
director refuses to budge from the old formula. He isn't ready just yet to
come out of the formula-centric masala movie mode. After dishing out
mediocre fare, he's at last come up with an entertainer that entertains big
time. Now you know why the movie tagline for Pazhani says "Commercial
Panchamritham."

Perarasu debuted with the much liked masala venture Thirupachi, quickly
sustaining his position as a masala king with his follow-up hit, Sivakasi.
But with Tirupati and Dharmapuri he slipped down several notches,
unable to seduce an audience the way he had with his first two hits. This
time, however, he is back with a vengeance: Perarasu gets all the different
ingredients of the masala formula just right in Pazhani, churning out an
enjoyable movie that is fast paced with several twists to keep the
audience hooked.

The movie is about a young hunk, Barath, who loves his mother and
sister. When he is just ten years old he goes to jail after killing his father's
second wife. He was forced to kill for his mother's sake. When he finally
comes out of jail, he is heart struck to see that his sister has begun hating
her brother- she seems to be in the same tragic situation as their mother
was fifteen years ago. What Barath does to help his sister forms the rest
of the plot, but intertwined is Perarasu's usual flair for romance, comedy,
dance and some fierce one-liners fired by the hero.
In Pazhani, Perarasu is back with a winner. The movie is certain to get a
huge reception in the B and C centers. The director scores extra points
for making Barath such a sizzling action hero. The first half is slickly
paced with intelligent turns in the plot. And just when you think the
second half is losing pace, Perarasu slams us with a rousing climax.
Typically, almost all the scenes are drenched in sentiment and illogic, but
an audience familiar with Perarasu's work will know that trying to find
logic in his script is close to committing a sin. The scene where Barath
presents his sister a saree, declaring that he sees her as his mother is
highly emotional and is sure to have women wetting their handkerchiefs.
In one of the songs Barath evokes the names of Rajinikanth, Vijay and
Ajith without provoking their huge fan base rather he impresses them
by demonstrating how much he respects those big stars.

The movie entirely belongs to Chinna Thalapathy Barath: this agile hero
has grabbed the opportunity to look every inch the action hero here. His
dialogue delivery, his agility in the stunt sequences, his grace in the
dance routines and his acting prowess in the more emotional scenes
catapults him into a star


in the making. Kushboo as usual impresses as Barath's sister, as does
yesteryear actress Rekha as his mother. Kajal Agarwal has little to do
except look cute and ravishing in the song sequences. Like so many of
our heroines whose roles are underwritten, her acting gets little scope.
Chitti Babu is unimpressive as the comedian. Ishwarya is at her best in a
villainous role. Banu Chandar, Biju Menon and Raj Kapoor in supporting
roles also stand out. Ravi Mariya, as the movie's villain and dialogue
writer, scores in both departments. His crackling dialogues are actually
the highlight of Pazhani.

Vijay Milton's cinematography is, as always, expert - the song sequences
especially are a treat. Editor Jaishankar has worked hard and it shows.
And both, stunt and dance choreography, nicely match the mood of the
movie. Srikanth Deva's music is fairly okay with two songs that are
memorable enough to stay with you after the end of the show.


Overall a mass masala entertainer, which is sure to become a hit (
particularly in the B and C centers) rewarding Barath with an action hero
image, and giving a much needed break to Perarasu's lagging career.
Pazhani is not for an audience looking for something offbeat and
inventive but for an audience craving for some old formulaic
entertainment loads of action thrown in with mother- sister sentiment.

Verdict: A formulaic thirst-quenche

Very nice Meli.
Bharat is quite fierce about his dancing. Has improved his acting quite a bit too.
His respecting big stars is fine, he can be a big star too someday.
