Enthiran (ROBOT) – Movie Review


No Spoilers !!

I cant think of  any movie that was being as eagerly awaited as this one and why not, just look at the names of the People Behind the Movie – Rajnikanth , Director Shankar, Aishwarya Rai , A. R. Rahman , Yuen Woo Ping as the stunt coordinator , Stan Winston Studios (special effects) and not to mention the Production house  SUN Pictures which backed the whole project with a whopping Indian Rupee symbol.svg160 Crores (and for the worldwide publicity) . And when names like these come together its natural to have an expectation beyond imagination.

Its not everyday, that your friend calls you  for a movie like Enthiran saying that he has got tickets for  weekend night show, at possibly , the best theater in the city. You dont get luckier than this 🙂 . And It is even more unlikely that during a time like this when you are high on mood waiting for the spectacle to began you realize that you are sitting on the Very First Row of the theater  😛 . You just feel like standing on the seat and to Cry out loud.. “MAAPU !!! Vichitaaan da Aaapu” 😛 . I guess this was only thing i regretted for the next 3 hours.

The movie sure ,unlike the other movies in the past, has lived upto its expectations (i mean my expectations 😛 )  . Before seeing the movie i had got a little “not so” promising remarks about the first half of the movie but i believe it could not have got any better.  All Credits to Director Shankar for believing in his script and waiting for almost  a decade for making this Historical movie Which might well be the opening for Sci- Fi Movies in the indian Cinema.  The Sheer flamboyance of Shankar’s direction can be seen in movie everywhere right from the Scene one. The locations for the songs couldn’t have been better  especially the ” kathal Anukkal “ which has been shot GOD KNOWS WHERE (please enlighten me ). I have never seen Special effects of such Quality in indian cinema ( Mind you, i am a big hollywood fan so i wont compare it to hollywood standards :mrgreen: ) although i feel , had the movie been under Hollywood Productions , the special effects could have been even better with even more budget 😀 . Stunt sequences were awesome ,the train one in particular ( leave alone the ROBO rajni running on the train 🙂 ) and I am really tired of actually saying that the music is good 🙂 . When A.R . Rahman is the Music Director, it has more or less become a default compliment associated with him 🙂 .

Rajnikanth politely declared in Enthiran why he is still acting at 60 . Although the movie is not exactly the Stereotype movies he normally selects , he has carried the whole movie and taken it to a different level altogether .  Sometimes it is really irritating to  find people mocking rajni and his so called exaggerated stunt scenes .  Yes,  he might have done something overboard but everyone in the industry too have done that at one point or the other, so why pick this man out. Better than mocking i think all those people should consider watching his old movies :X . Anyways lets come back  to the review, Rajni obviously stole the show through his ROBO character ” CHITTI ” . Honestly , there was nothing much in the movie when we talk about the performances. Almost 80 percent of the scenes has Ranji in it . I just felt as if there were just 3 characters in the whole movie (two of them being Rajni 😀 ).  Unbelievable but true.  There aren’t many Indian movies where you would actually be enjoying a villain’s character and i can assure  you that this one is one such kind .

Songs although wonderfully shot, sometimes appear to have been introduced just for the visual treat, like the “kilimanjaro” which seem to have no proper reason of being there.  Some action sequences in the climax too appear baseless but in indian cinema you are bound to watch those even though u dont like it 🙂  and yeah the funniest of all where Rajni talks to a mosquito ,it is actually not something that i expected from shankar’s movie 😛 .

Inspite of those things that i mentioned above i wouild still rate the  movie 7 out of 10. Please do watch the movie just to witness -the flamboyance shankar has given to the indian cinema,   life that Rajni gave to the ROBO character called Chitti ,  Music that was equally complimented by the superb locations they were shot and may be, on a lighter note , even for the kisses Aishwarya Gives to Rajni (almost double her age) 🙂 .

My Friendly advice for those  who love to watch a movie just to find logic behind the scenes is just avoid the movie rather than lamenting later 🙂 and yeah, once again for all those Who dont like Rajni, you should start watching his earlier movies first 🙂 .

And I being a Rajnikant Fan would be surely watching it once again ( atleast ) 🙂

 

PS: Did I say that one of scenes in the movie was shot at My office (Olympia Tech Park, Guindy 🙂 )

Ummm… Hiiii …


Bloody hell !! I have been staring my computer screen for almost 10 minutes now, just thinking how to start this post. I suppose you cant expect anything better when u are not blogging for almost a year and half.  Believe it or not , i logged in to my account after almost a year and for the last 1 hour have been moderating around 500 odd comments ,around 300 still waiting for my approval 😛 and yeah 80 percent of them make no sense anyway:) . Gosh! People are still crazy about hacking and counter strike 🙂 , thanks to them no of visitors to my blog has increased by around 1 Lakh since i left it 😛 .

Well,  I guess i need to get rid of my writer’s block somehow. This is totally insane , although i want to write , its like i am just out of words . I suppose this is what happens when You don’t write anything for a  year. You just end up like this drafting some gibberish Post . Anyways there’s always a chance to start afresh, and here i am trying to make some sense out of this senseless post 😛 .

There are actually  a lot of things i could share with you here. Its been almost 20 months since i stepped into my professional life and i  have just started to get the Kick of corporate life 🙂 .  Damn! Now Dont i miss my college life ? 😦 . leave the money factor ,ofcourse, I would always opt for college again 🙂 .I have bought myself a New mobile , a Brand new Micromax Q2 . I thought of buying a Iphone but ended up buying a Micromax set which ofcourse costs 1 Zero Less than than the former one and Since my sony W810 stopped working my Dad is quite sure that I cant handle anything properly and he somehow managed to persuade me in buying this Cheap Blackberry Remake 🙂 . And Yes, I bought a New Bike too , the new HONDA CB TWISTER and I am just loving it :).

Quite Ironic to say , ever since i stopped writing  posts supporting the Indian Cricket team, It has come a long way to become No1 Test Team . Now that’s something interesting isn’t it ?? hehe. Well , Honestly , Sachin Scoring a Double hundred, Chennai super Kings winning the IPL3  and then champions trophy i think i have missed a lot of entertainment here as far as cricket is concerned. Its just not Cricket that i missed, there have been hell lot of other things like those Witty tags that we used to do, those calvin and hobbes strips , those hilarious posts especially by Nikhil and a lot more .

Well, I wont promise but i guess i would try to be as regular as possible from now and Yeah, Did i say that i saw Enthiran (ROBOT) yesterday and i kinda liked so might just be able to review it in couple of days.

And To my regular Readers (those days 😉  )  How are you Guys ?? Hope You have been regularly updating your  blogs unlike me .  The Very thought of opening my google reader scares me . I guess there would be thousands of posts waiting for me, half of them from our Vishesh Ofcourse 🙂 . Anyways   would be catching up with those slowly .

OMG!! Tomorrow is Monday , Possibly the worst days to work 😦 so i need to hit my bed , its already 11:30 PM .  Wait a sec, Let me  switch on the TV first i just realized that i have been missing the HELL IN CELL telecast in TEN SPORTS 🙂 ,  So thats it for now,  The Entertainment Blog is ON once again 😀 .

CHAO!!!!

Ladies and Gentelmen !!

WE are proud to Have with us  the Guy  who Probably was missed by millions and millions of bloggers across the world galaxy Universe  .The guy who created ripples in the blogoshpere by his ever entertaining posts . Whose blog became the only source of entertainment for all the people in the times when the parasite boredom creeped in .

Let us Welcome the amazing ,ever stunning

**Drums Rolling **

**Drum Rolling**

Phew !! Its really strange that  it  takes  a build up as lame as the one above to take a blogger like me out from hibernation . Self-Motivation , u see 😀 . Every one Needs motivation . And when there is no one to motivate u . You have do all on your own :mrgreen:  . Now that cheer girls have stopped Chanting my name let me come to the main idea of the post.

This has been my longest absence from the blogosphere 😦 . I really missed all Your blogs and i guess u must have missed my valuable ,enlightning and entertaining posts too 😀 . Never mind ! Now that i am back , your Ultimate source of Entertainment is back Online :P.

A Lot has happened in a span of month . Yet it seems  so vague that i will have to search for words to fill it up here . Sometimes i feel that the world has narrowed down  much within a time of 2 months .Home to office , Office to home . Ofcourse they pay me but it still seems so odd . Huh !! May be i need more time to adjust with my Korporate Konnection 😛 . Anyways  i dont intend to write my tantrums out here 😛 . So lets talk something interesting . Cricket ???  . WHy not  !! . Well,  India creating history in NewZeland by winning a series after 41 years is not what i am going to talk about .:P They are creating “history” far too often now that it has started to become little monotonous now 😉 . The interesting thing is that HIPL (Hewitt internal peremiar league) is going on at my office 😛 . The good news is that my team (vennila cricket kuzhu ) is through to super six . Now how good would it feel to hit  a six as the winning shot 😛 . Thats what i did and my team members have found their new hero 😀 . Well , you see i have a natural flair for the game . Lucky that i have a blog where i can blow my own trumpet 😛 . And we have formed Vennila kabbadi kuzhu also  😛 . I am sure we would be atleast runner up in that . It seems there are only 2 teams that have registered inluding my team 😛 .

I have regained my old love and passion for books  😛  .  Although i dont get much time but still i have been making it a point to read atleast 30-40 pages  daily .Currently reading The White Tiger and now i am able to realize why people were going ga-ga over this book . Bought Robin cook’s  Invasion . Anyone here who has read that book ?? A short review would be  fine in the comment section 😛 . Talking about books , Yesterday one of my collegues came  across my blog .She was hell-bent on insisting me that IT field is not my cup of tea. .According to her I should ,perhaps , write a book . Now How crazy is that ? :mrgreen:

Rakhi SAwant Ka swayamwar

And Whats all this about Rakhi sawant Getting married On NDTV IMAGINE . I mean Is she  On her minds or what . I knew she was crazy but this is too much .I  need to figure out  a theory which proves  that  Length of dress u wear is  directly proportional to the size of brain 😛 .  And May be  now NDTV IMAGINE can flaunt with a big advertizement Rakhi ka SWAYAMWAR – Reality show ka Baap :D. The show would be the height of crazyness 😛 .

Other day i got this pic through a mail –

Crazy cat

ROFLMAO !!  Whats wrong with the cat ?? may be u can write  a one liner 😉

Well , Thats all i have to bore Entertain u today :mrgreen: ..

No surprises  .I am not going to write anything new , infact i have got nothing new :P.

First of  all I would like to congratulate Ar Rahman and Resul Pookutty for bringing oscars 😛 to our country ,something that we badly missed every year. Each and every indian would be proud for what they have managed to achieve . Frankly speaking i never thought we would get oscars 🙄 .

But ,when A.R.Rehman got nominated i was sure that he would get one atleast . He is a true genius . Starting from Roja for which he won national award ,he has never turned back . The magic he creates in every movie  still amazes me. I can name quite a few movies which ran in theaters just  due to his music 😛 .Kollywood -> Bollywood ->Hollywood , Is there anything left unconquered .

Long live rahman  . Jai Ho Rahman !!

Anyways, I would like to put forward some questions . Give me your honest opinion 😛

Both the songs in slumdog were good . But dont you think he (rahman) has infact , given us far better songs in the past ??

No wonder slumdog won the award for best cinematography , I really liked the way the movie was presented ,but did it deserve the award for best motion picture ???

Did You know who Resul pookutty was before he won the oscars ?? (i mean i am not a movie buff so i wasnt aware of him )

okay i will stop it here .You see, time constraint is a big problem . 102 posts still unread on my reader .  My valuable comment will be on all ur blogs within a day 😉 .Extremly sorry for the delay 😦

Chao  !!!
