#JigarThanda- When Kodambakkam meets Madurai (warning: Heavy Spoilers)
Many will miss this man when they start praising this movie. But I would like to start with him. Yes. Thank you Siddarth for accepting this script even after knowing the how much big the role of Villain is. I respect you.
Many movies came in Tamil with a powerful villain. I would say our 'Assault Sethu' is the most powerful villain Tamil cinema ever saw. In the trailer itself they have clearly portrayed Villain as the most important character in the movie. I believe Simmah's portrayal in the trailer is the reason for pre-release expectation of this movie even though many of us were aware that this movie is Pizza director's next.
Coming to the plot, young aspiring director Karthik played by Siddarth (might be named after Karthiksubburaja himself) insulted by one director-judge and defended by a producer-judge in the semifinals of short movie competition. At the end of this ego clash, director eliminated Siddarth but producer assured him to produce his film. This is the very first scene in the movie that led the story to kick start. This scene was so real as a reality show and it even showed what may happened behind the screen in reality shows.
The producer wants Siddarth to direct a gangster movie with blood and gore. He even gave him the option (movie may be his own or a copy). He decided to write script based on a living gangster. After getting help from his journalist uncle and his police friend he got file of Madurai Don Assault Sethu . The very first buildup for villain begins here.
Siddarth then reached Madurai and succeeded in convincing his friend to let him stay in his home by offering him the role of second hero in his upcoming movie. He starts to chase Simmah from now. He is trying hard to collect information about him that makes us to believe him as Pukka don even before he appears on the screen. Even the hero started seeing villain as a idol. He glorifies his achievements even though himself and his friend have the fear inside of getting caught.
Villain assault Sethu grabs all our attention with his superb performance and Siddharth also got meaty role and more screen space.
The flow of movie changes for every 10 or 20 mins keeping us hooked up with the movie. All the scenes looked so fresh and real. the romance between siddharth and Lakshmi menon was minimal and fragile. Anyhow it looked okay since siddharth's intention is to act like loving her to get information about Simmah. When the movie nears the end of first half we all would have got thrilled with such engaging scenes. These thrilling sequences reminded me that of Pizza. Interval block was perfect to stir our expectation.
It is no more a gangster movie when the second half starts. Simmah gave permission to take movie about him and second half gets its pace with scenes by Vijay Sethupathi as rising Assault Sethu. Then in next course of movie Siddarth joins Simmah gang fulltime to observe and write the script lively. Siddarth does influence Simmah some times. It all makes us to laugh. Meanwhile Siddharth started ignoring Lakshmi as she is no more useful to him. In order to give heroine the role, Lakshmi Menon was used to change the movie's course a major one this time by polluting Simmah's mind making him desirous to become hero of his own movie that eventually will trouble Siddarth. She did this to take revenge on Siddharth as he cheated her.
Initially Siddarth opposed this plan but later agreed make him as hero. Then the training sessions and shooting sequences moved with funny scenes that lags a little as weak portion in the movie. But not too boring.
In the next course of this movie , The movie 'AA.Kumar' gets released. I would like to leave at least this last surprise to the readers of this review. This last portion of this movie brings back the last pace in the previous portion. Finally the movie ends with a silly twist which i don't consider as so.
It is completely a new treatment of a gangster based story. But i expected that the movie would join the league of Pudhupettai and Aaranyakandam. But it doesn't since it a path breaking genre defining movie (don't ask me what genre it is). We can expect some movies in future to join the league of Jigarthanda.

Velaiilla Pattadhari (2014)
Good commercial entertainer not boring at any time. Worth for 120 bucks.
Polled as best trailer of the year, VIP aka Velai Illa Pattathari released with huge expectations among the fans. The first question would be, did the movie met the expectations ? The answer is YES. The movie clearly delivered what it has promised in the trailer.
The story in the first half doesn't need to credited for the writer. Because it is the story of lakhs of Engineering Graduates ( VIPs) in the state. Even though it looks like typical Danush movie, director Velraj presented it with fresh scenes perfectly matching his expectation by handling the camera by himself. Interval block is perfect to make transition in the story. While the first portrays the reality the Second half is just opposite to it with more cinematic stuffs but packed up well. Climax is cool, ending peacefully. Every actors fits well in their respective roles. Both Amala Paul and Surabhi are looking beautiful without any glam n skin.. All the songs are merged well in the script without spoiling the flow. Anirudh's bgm is rocking as usual..
No practical useful message for the VIPs.
But rich-poor-suppression dialogues are raw, good n stirring. (Tats my pick in this movie)
PS: Dear VIPs, with our celebrations the movie will become hit but we will be failures only if we are so proud of being VIP blaming others. Actually the govt should take the blame. Even this movie failed mention tat. Yosinga !
