No time to write a full review. I liked it for the most part, except when the director seemed to lose his grip on the movie in the last quarter. The highlight is the excellent chemistry between Asin and Surya. Asin was awesome and attractive as usual. The song picturization left a lot to be desired, especially my two favorite "oru maalai" and "suttum vizhi". The screenplay shuttles back and forth between present and past, and makes the viewer keep guessing the finer details.
Surya kanji kudicha madhiri moda modannu nadakkurar, especially in the 'present' scenes. Andha villain-ai 'Viduthalai siruthaigal' kitte pidichu kudutha punniyama pogum..

Namitha kooda pottiya? Avanga panra 'thathu pithu' velai ellam partha paavam, avangaloda patients ellam insure pannittudhaan parkka poganum (Ammani final year medical student-am.. Kizhinjudhu)
2) Nuvvustanante Nenodantanna:
Prabhu Deva, in his directorial debut, has come up with a family entertainer. Though the second part of the movie is quite inspired from hindi hits like "Maine pyar kiya" and "Pyar kiya to darna kiya", it has some refreshing moments and keeps one engaged throughout. The minutes before climax lead to a needless tragedy and it appears to be just for the sake of having a climax. Siddharth and Trisha make a lovely duo and their initial interactions are sweet and cute. Sid seems to be watching a few Shah Rukh movies of late. It would be better if he tries to keep it original as he did in Boys and Aitha Ezhuthu. Trisha is getting better with each movie. Prakash Raj, as usual, does a remarkable job in the few minutes of cameo he gets. Songs are melodious and the cinematography is neat. Saw a Telugu movie after 7 years or so, it was worth the wait.
First the title. I had to copy and paste it after some googling. Vayile nuzhaiyadha title plus I dont know the meaning as well. Sid's hairstyle yaaroda idea-vo? (Trisha-ve 'kurangu madhiri irukku'nnu comment adikkira). Padathoda periya jokers-e adhoda villains.. adhuleyum karuppa varra villain sirichu siriche kolraar. Original comedian pendha pendha muzhichinde sokku adikkirar. Kashtam. Trisha-vai vida avaloda friend suuuper. Yarachum andha devathaiyai Tamil-ku kondu vaangappa plz plz..
Paheli is based on a Rajasthani folk story and is based sometime in the 18th or 19th century.
It is a cute ghost movie. I dont know how many die-hard Shahrukh fans would accept him in the role of a ghost but the heroine does. In India, there are hundreds of unbelievable folk stories. I think they are better left to read and enjoy. If someone tries to fit a larger-than-life actor like Shahrukh, it may not click, as is the case with Paheli. It is very colorful but songs by MM Kreem (our good old Maragathamani aka Keeravani) disappoint us. They are nowhere near his previous Sur or Jism. Shahrukh does for the umpteenth time the role of someone who steals the heart of his near and dear by acting chooo chweet..
Husband roopathule oru pei vandha enna pennalavadhu ethukka mudiyuma? I doubt, especially since this movie is based long ago, when the men had a final say in whatever way the family has to be run. Pei kooda kudmbam nadathi kuzhanthai pethukkaradhu scientifically epadi sathiyam? Nalla kaadhule poo suthurangappa.. Mothathule idhu 'thalaiyum illatha kaalum illatha' oru kathai (namma vooru peikkku ellam kaal irukkathunnu kelvipattirukkenn). Shahrukh-ai meesaiyoda parkka comedy-ya irukku.. Pavam Amitabh.. Rajasthani dress-le baffoon madhiri vandhu 10 minutes kalaichittu porar. Kal anaalum kanavan, pei analum purushan-nu Tamil-le dub pannalam.
When Sarat appears as 'Publicity Ganesan', an autodriver who seems to be interested in getting famous by gaining media coverage. The first quarter of the movie is pretty different and we get to think that the director has come up with totally new ideas as a surprise package. Unfortunately, the story takes the age-old track of "revenge for dear ones' death". The climax is heavily inspired from 'Phonebooth'. Vadivelu's comedy raises a few laughs and it seems Sarat has struck a great liking for his comedy. The first half thus has lots of Vadivelu moments, and, as expected, he slowly disappears in the second half. Namitha as usual is for just songs. Good to see Salim Ghous after a long time.
Namitha-vai parthuttu Deepak-oda latest post padinga. Ammani is growing in all dimensions (acting-le ille, makkala..). Sarat adikkadi punch dialogue-ellam vidurar. Appuram perusa onnum ille.
