Movies 2008: Dasavatharam

with 3 comments

This was my first Tamil movie in theaters after quite a long time .The last was in 2002 while at college.

The movie is really childish..even cartoon network airs better sci fi stuff.. A clever ploy in keeping the storyline secret.

The good things: I accept its no small thing to act in 10 roles with 10 diffent body languages.Kamal aces in that.

And Kudos to the director. Great effort in putting together the movie. The first 5 minutes showing 12th century was well made. The camera was world class,especially the tsunami thing and the stunt with 3 kamals at the climax ..nice nice.

Stuff I didnt like: ( and which gave me a ringing headache for the rest of the day)

Since its a Kamal movie I did expect some ‘intellectual’ stuff in the dialogs..but this was too much. Kamal’s rant about God and religion continues on and on and on… At one point it was buffer overflow and I stopped following .
However there is only 1 Kamal who gives the fundas ..the others are pretty much dumb.. quite a relief there.

As mentioned in this review, Asin keeps talking, that too some weird sanskrit words. I am sure no one in Chidambarm or anywhere in the globe use these words now.

The makeup was mediocre ..Not at all good. Indian/Avvai Shanmugi makeups were much better.Maybe they wanted everyone to know its kamal who is ‘donning’ that role urghh..
Dialogues again: It would be good if Kamal stops writing dialogues.He is very good at acting but I think there are better script writers .

Verdict Frankly I expected more from Kamal…and less from KS Ravikumar.The movie experience was quite the opposite.  Watch it once for Kamal and the extraordinary effort of KSRavikumar.

If you dont like fast moving movies, dont go..you will get a headache. (personal experience).
