Movies 2009: கற்றது தமிழ்

with one comment

I went to a popular DVD rental store recently looking for DVDs of Nip Tuck. While searching
the library I found a movie that was in my to-do list for a long time.

Tamil-MA-03 Katrathu Tamil (I Learnt Tamil) is a serious movie on the plight of some professions  in India today.

Being quite brilliant at school Prabhakar could have well chosen a professional degree to have
a ‘bright and secure’ future. But he chooses to do MA in Tamil literature ,thanks to his love and
respect for his Tamil mentor.  Reality strikes Prabhakar after graduation. Of the 30 from his class ,only 3 get into a job.  Prabhakar looses his teaching job after a minor tussle with the local police.

Distraught with life,and the harsh living conditions around him, his life goes wayward and Prabhakar turns a psychopath. He starts hating everyone around him and goes on a killing spree killing around 22 people in cold blood.

The director tries to portray the gripe that many have in their mind over the ‘professionals’. IT Pros and BPO executives. I liked the portrayal of a psychopath and how he gets his compulsive obsession to KILL .

Yuvan Shankar raja’s music has gelled well with the movie.

Watch the movie if you are a serious movie buff.

  1. Even with quite an expectation, i watched this movie. I hated this movie. I felt the direction to be pathetic… the script seems to be written as to include all the atrocities into a single person’s life!

    And at the end, the movie doesn’t really correlate well with the title. There could be several reasons because of which the hero would’ve ended up as a psychopath- his mother’s death in car accident and mainly his supposed love failure. Also, if you observe the scene where he tores the football into pieces, it clearly indicates that “Tamil” degree is not the reason for his wayward behavior.
    Also, regarding the portrayal of IT/BPO professionals, i remember only 1 scene where the director relates to it and even that was done in a bad taste…
