"Definitely" Ayirathil Oruvan.

Ayirathil Oruvan....A must see movie....

(Image courtesy Google images)

Reason #1: The plot....Clever mixture of Kalki's novels Ponniyin Selvan(ponni's son), Mohini theevu(Mohini's Island) and few english adventure flicks.

Reason #2: The screenplay...Except for the last 30 odd minutes, the movie was never sluggish. Completely keeps the viewers engrossed in it.

Reason #3: Fantasy/Adventure....This must be the mother of all Indian fantasy and adventure movies. Can proudly call Indian(even tamilian) answer to hollywood's Indiana Jones or Meckanna's Gold or Last of the Mohicans or the likes.

Reason #4: Reema Sen...Easily pick of the lot. Essayed her character(personification of arrogance) awesomely. She definitely deserves mention.

Reason #5: The massive scale...No wonder the movie took almost 2 years to complete. I have never seen any indian movie with so much characters sharing single screen. This movie musut be easily the most in terms of the number of characters on screen over the full movie. Not just in one, two scenes but almost full of second half.

Reason #6: Technology...The use of graphics is so excellent that it syncs so well with the plot and movie and blends so naturally unlike the other so called indian graphics movies.

Reason #7: Efforts and hardwork...It goes without saying that this is a result of sheer hard work and lots of efforts put on this project. For an indian movie of this scale, this storyline, fantasy and adventure backdrop is stunningly surprising.

Reason #8: The Director...Selvaraghavan, whatever people say about his genre of films but this one easily his best till date and has done complete justice to the script and the characters. No one ever can even dare to think of a movie this big, this fantasized yet so tamilian movie so far till date. Kudos to him...

Reason #9: The Crew...No director can bring about such a big movie without the complete cooperation and support of his crew. Selvaraghavan has been lucky i would say to get such a crew.

Though there were quite a few cliches and holes i do not wanna see any of those for one reason that this flick proves we are good enough to take such fantasy and adventurous movies. Once the movie ended when i started walkin my mind was thinking it's time for Ponniyin Selvan movie to be taken like The Lord of the Ring in sequels.
Three Cheers to the Ayirathil Oruvan Crew!

wanted to watch the movie since a long time, but the trailers gave me a small doubt abt the.... u kno, there is a very bad language part in the trailer itself. After ur post, may be its just one of those black spots that can be easily ignored. I shud watch it soon

@Sats, nice movie mate. Go watch it.

Chan said...

@Swetha, Yeah every movie one can find so many negatives. But this one i am sure we must ignore and watch the flick for its conception n sheer hardwork to bring it on the screen.

Ithukkagave i want to watch the movie...The songs are already a hit with P, bt i dont think i can watch with him. So, kandippa no theater.....

@Srivats, U shud definitely watch this in big screen bro.
@Chennai Girl, I went for the movie with my niece (4yrs old) and we were duly stopped by the lady outside the entrance that it was certified 'A'. I had to convince her that my niece wont understand a bit of wats being said or done ;-P But trust me she enjoyed(watched like watching pogo) the movie not sure wat she understood.

Trust me, they would understand everything. Incase of romance scenes on TV, i secretly watch P and a mild smile would appear on his face....
