National Anthem in sathyam cinemas..& Anjaadhe movie review
I visited Sathyam cinemas yesterday for a late evening show "Anjaadhey". I was surprised to see National Anthem being played at the beginning of the movie and more surprising that everyone stood up (of course there was a slide asking everybody to stand up).I felt so proud to stand up. It was amazing and very soothing to hear Jana Gana Mana in SPB's voice and it also had him in visual. I am not too sure if this was done earlier, It's been quite some time now that I have been to sathyam. But had a good treat!
Now speaking about Anjaadhe movie, excellent movie I would say. The direction , picturisation and the emotions were excellent. But the songs were quite week (off course there were only 3 songs). This is the year’s best Tamil movie so far and will remain among its best.
This movie is directed by Mysskin. This movie is about two friends, one who becomes a Police and one who should have been a police, takes a different route which is the mix of explosive action, thrilling sequences and mental suffering emotions.
The cast includes Naren, newcomer Ajmal Ameer and Vijayalakshmi of Chennai 600028 fame in the lead roles. The film also stars actor Prasanna who is coming out with a never before seen role. Great performance by Prasanna. We have seen him only in his usual choclate boy role and he did a splendid performance and plays a role of serial rapist and the king of the kidnapping gang.I would say this is a courageous performance from this actor.
Actor Pandiarajan, was superbly cast as one of the kidnappers, delivers a performance that virtually reintroduces the actor to his fans and all audiences.Vijayalakshmi plays Kiruba’s sister, and in love with Sathya. she has done a commendable job.But the dream song could have been performed better.
Some of the action sequences are brilliant. And the emotions have depicted so well especially in the scenes where a flower seller, who helps Sathya rescue a dying man, has a nylon cover wrapped around a leg wound, and sathya's friend kuruvi's death and as well as one of the villain(one among the kidnappers gang, sorry forgot the name) getting shot by prasanna in front of his son. The emotions were depicted so clearly and given equal weightage to the movie.
Overall the movie Anjaadhe was excellent in all ways and a must have DVD at home.
