Bombay Theater, Thirunelveli, advertised as Full AC dts was somewhat upto mark. Tickets sold in Rs.10, 20, 40 and balcony - guess what - Rs.80 - cheap indeed. It was a rainy day. Only a handful of people seen here and there (totally 20). Blaming myself for seeing the movie after a long time, missing all zing things - Deafening Whistles, Thundering Claps and Showered Flowers - I watched the film silently. When we were out, the theater manager blamed the rain.
Coming to the movie, it is a bit scientific, more Iswarya Rai and much more the Robot Rajni. Rajni, as a scientist with the french beard, nice to look upon. He, as the robot, played well the villanious act in the second part. Iswarya Rai, once a doll, now a beauty in thirties, overacted in some scenes but good in many. Never able to forgot her graceful and elegant dance moves in this film.So watchful...
Climax is a mix of Kingkong, Godzilla and a light doze of comedy. I feel that this movie can't be associated as a 'Rajni film'. We miss the RAJNIKANTH thing - mannerism, style and ofcourse fight - in this one. Overall, its a new era film with our Superstar acting, not a Superstar film in this new era.
Leaving Rajni, the film's grandeur, locational choreography, songs and music, costumes score high. As the concept is new to Tamil cinema, we gladly welcome and appreciate the technicians' worth in this movie. It moves the Indian films to a step up in synonymous with its corresponding counterparts. Great work done by the team.
