28. Aayirathil Oruvan

The wait is finally over !!!!

Selvaraghavan's long due project hit the screens today ,today was the day i was been waiting for a looooong time.

Was the wait for the movie worth it ????

PLOT : " An epic adventure undertaken by a group to people to trace the Last Chola King & his heir "

The plot of the movie is just a mere understatement ,i was just expecting another Indiana Jones type of movie after seeing the trailer of the this film but beware there's more to it.

Director Selvaraghavan has scripted another beautiful masterpiece which he can be damn proud of ,the director's work is on par with any international movie when it comes to the story and screenplay for this film.

Originality was the keyword in this movie ,every scene had originality to it with not even an hint of being lifted from any other epic movie.

The cast of the film mainly comprises of Reemma Sen ,Parthiban ,Karthik & Andrea.Everyone's work is really appreciable.Reema Sen has given the best performance of her career ,awards for her role might not come as a surprise ,she is main pillar of the movie around which the entire story revolves.

Parthiban was another pillar with his versatile acting & body language ,Karthik has done a role similar to his prevoius film "Paruthiveeran" but here his comic sense is more so profound ,he really comes to life during the latter part of the film.

Andrea has done her part ,pity that her role was overshadowed by the performances of the other cast.Her acting too was very well brought out as so we can expect from a Selvaraghavan movie.

Technical wise the film scores really well with the visual effects coming of its own in Tamil Cinema.The film crew's hardwork is evident throughout the film ,more so is the work of the make-up department & the supporting junior artists.

The strength of the film is its script which requires avid attention from the audience ,if you walk in to the theatre expecting every detail to be thrown at you then am sorry then this film will not work out for those kind.

In a period where Masala Films have been grinded out at regular intervals from the Tamil Industry ,Aayirathil Oruvan comes as a rare glimpse of hope that all is not lost.

Periodic films have become a rare genre these days.I dunno why people are hestitating to produce such films in India which is rich in its culture and tradition ,the film also brings back the good old Tamil from ancient days that was very pleasant at the sametime warranted great amount of attention to understand.

The first half of the film is very much an adventure ride with great comical scenes with an extra dosage of reality whereas the second part traverses the side of lost civilizations ,impeccable acting and some irrefutable facts of how people have a destiny to fullfill.

Spiritual aspects play a vitol role in the film ,the main concept of the film is how people each have a destiny.

Was the wait for the movie worth it ????

Oh YES !!!!
The film was worth the hype and wait ,expecting the film to be a run of the mill adventure flick i was pleasantly astounded as the film unraveled itself.

Go with an open mind to enjoy the movie ,some people might find it hard to understand the plot of the movie but i dont blame them because we audience are being fed only worthless masala movies most of the time.

Aayirathil Oruvan has broken many barriers in Tamil Cinema with ease.
Make sure you dont miss it !!!

  • Rating : "A" for strong language & some nudity.
