18. Aam Aadmi moves Forward ??????? Lol !!!

Shining India” ---The common man(Aam Aadmi) moves forward, And with his every step India prospers" ,Do these slogans ring a bell ????
Yup ,these were the very propaganda used by Politicians in India but as we are all well aware of the fact that India had neither shined nor grown for a common man ,rather his/her condition had gone from bad to worse.

Now the Aam Aadmi(so-called) is tentative in venturing out ,scared of the unknown terror lurking somewhere ,scared whether he will return in one piece or return at all.

Politicians ,wrongly-called Leaders of our country ,use our money to guard their precious self & leave the Aam Aadmi at the mercy of terrorists.They show complete irreverence to the Aam Admi's lives while they strive for power & money.

PLOT : "A Police commissioner faces one of the daunting day's of his career when an anonymous caller threatens to blow up the city ,the rest of the plot follows a cat & mouse game taking place between the caller & the commissioner involving people from various walks of life. "

Unnai Pol Oruvan ,a remake of Hindi film "A Wednesday" ,showcases the perils of terrorism & farce taking place when handing terrorists.The film echoes the common man’s anger against terrorism.

Directed by Chakri Toleti ,the film serves justice to its original Hindi version with some minor adjustments to appeal to the regional audience ,trust me these changes have served the purpose well.The debutant director has made his statement with this edge of the seat thriller.

Kamal Hassan & Mohan Lal are the pillars of the film ,Kamal dons the role of the anonymous caller while Mohan Lal protrays
a Police commissioner swinging around from the hands of Power ,Politics and Public.

The two are a delight to watch on-screen with their realistic depiction of their characters ,the supporting cast includes Lakshmi ,Ganesh Venkatraman ,Anuja Iyer ,Sriman play their roles without any signs of cliche'.

Cinematography by Manoj Soni is very neat & appealing ,adding the right mix of colours.The film focusses terrosim through the eyes of the common man.

Background score by Shruti Hassan is commendable ,the music serves as a roller coaster ride for the audience touching its highs & lows just at the right points in the movie.

Even though its a remake ,Unnai Pol Oruvan is deserved to be watched just because of the Mohan Lal & Kamal Hassan who bring about a different dimension to their original character's in the Hindi version.

The harsh reality of terrorism threatening our country & the way Bureaucrats handle terrorism is lived out in this film ,the remedy proposed for this ?

Our country was ready to go to war when the Parliament was attacked in 2001 but no swift action was witnessed when the same country was devastated by the attack on Mumbai on 2008.

So what does this all add up to ????
Is the common man's life expendable while money is spent on protecting Bureaucrats who cannot look beyond protecting their own interests ????????

  • Director : Chakri Toleti
  • Writer : Neeraj Pandey
  • Rating : "PG" for violence.
P.S : " While i was going through an article in the net i came across a remedy proposed to root out these pathetic Bureaucrats ,the author was of the opinion that only a change in the way of electing the bureaucrats would serve as a solution.I forgot to copy the link of the site but full credit to the author for providing such a purposeful idea. "

P.P.S : " The author's suggestions to change the election process are
  • Every adult has one vote.
  • Educated adults get one more vote. If they attain certain level of education, they get a third vote.
  • If a person is a tax payer, he gets one more vote. If he contribute things of value to the country, he gets the fifth vote.
  • In an election his voting gets translated into five votes!. "

I've the movie 'A Wednesday' .. it's really good !

Btw, suggestions to change the election process are really awesome, but may not work in our country as it's still developing and there are loopholes in our system, but something really to be considered by better developed countries and by us after may be five years :)
