Anniyan @ Satyam cinemas(chennai) -->wonderful experience.
Lot of reviews float in the net abt this movie and what i have here is my view.
The storyline shows some similarity to Shankar's previous movies Indian and gentleman.well all his heroes have been crime fighters and cant help them being similar.
well positives first.
:) Vikram- a class act.Be it the simple "rules Ramanujam" or the lover ramp model "remo" or the killer Anniyan (with the style of "undertaker" ) he is just fantastic.The scenes with Sadha in the room of "temple towers" where he switches between Remo and Anniyan and the scene with Praksahraj where he in a single shot depicts both "ambi" and "anniyan" are just too good.He scores in Comedy in the scenes in the train and then when he writes his love letter to mention a few.
:) Vivek- man whenever he comes on the screen the theatre erupts to a laughter.he is just too good in his timing and only he can bring this effect.The jokes where he drags kamalHassan,vairamuthu are just a couple of instances of his superb comedy.
:) Cinematography-Ravi varman and Manikandan have done a brilliant job .The fight sequences and the songs deserve special mention.The "tulip gardens " in the Kumari song are a visual treat.Andankaaka song,wherein u find a whole village panited colourfully (including a big bridge)is awesome.
:) Music-Harris jayaraj has did a pretty good job in the background score and the songs are all pretty good though many felt the absence of ARR.
:) Shankar-for obvious reasons.
Sadha and prakashraj also deserve special mention as they have stuck to their job.
someone may say whether it is sadha or 'Sodha' .well she looks pretty good.And thats half the job done.and she doesnt overact or do any blunders anywhere.
Prakashraj as the police officer is as usual good.nothing very particular about his role.The minuses..
:( Sadha doesnt even get the slighest of doubts about the similarity between remo and ambi.
:( First half is dragged a bit explaining about the irresponsible public.Even in the theatre during the intermission i saw ppl smoking in a no-smoking zone.
:( Storyline somewhat similar to sidney sheldon's Tell me your dreams.
Overall its a fine movie and will be one of the biggest Tamil Superhits of all time.
