Vettaiyadu- Vilaiyadu - Movie Review

After long time, I saw a no non-sense movie . The story line seem to be taken from lot of "medical detectives" episodes of Discovery channel. Yet the racy screenplay keeps the spirit in this lengthy 3-hour movie. Had never seen this director's (Gautham) earlier movie  . Kakha Kakha experience seemed to have added a lot of expectation for this movie- which would have been a spoilsport for majority of audienece. The script is the real hero, which keeps the story line bristling with energy all the way.
Surya would have done a better job than kamal. But Kamal's presence adds a majesty to the movie. His larger-than-real-life image definitely is a plus point. Jyothika acting skill are being tested in those sentimental moments in the movie- she did a fair job too. The goa song is an absolute inspiration from Bollywood movies; may be the director had intention of selling that song alone to any hindi movie :) The first half of movie unfolds clearly with no major hiccups, whereas second halg got slowed down by those unnecessary songs.When prakashraj and his wife got killed in Newyork, Kamal speaks to his boss asking him to be oathed to the case. His speaks so politely and I couldn't avoid comparing that with the situation where our softie frens speak politely to their manager to get an onsite assignment ;)
Few interesting moments from the movie:
When kamal and Jo meet in a hotel in NY-
K- "Raghavan"
Jo- "Aradhana"
K- "Enn??" (asking about the suicide attempt of her)
J- "Enna maniratnam padam meri dialogue pesiringa?"  :)
Kamal goes out on investigation with detective Anderson in NY
K- "I have a gut feeling"
A- "What? what feeling you said"
K- "Back home it is called Raghavan instinct"

My friend told me its a story from one of RajeshKumar's novels.

I remember one more incident in that movie. Thats when Jo thinking Kamal to be a Software Engineer & he explains him to be a Police Officer.

Ragavan, staying in... ready, come on, yeah! Let's go...

"Deadlydialogs" idea nalla irukka. But not going to start it and all. If somebody start, i may contribute to it. Its not that great interesting stuff, isn't it? Its subject matter of few blogposts, dont need a separate blog yaar.

Few dialogues from Anbe sivam
"Ofcourse every dog has it own day and they say love is blind"
k- "yaro orathanakaga irakapadara manasu than kaduvul. Mr.Ars, you are god"
M- "So you"
K- "yeah, I know that"
M- "You are last world's freak man"
