well its been a looong gap and it needed something like this to push me to writing…… am talking about ANNIYAN!!
standing in the queue in the early hours of Tuesday, 14th jun… we all got the tickets for Anniyan at Satyam for the first day … thrilled we were would be an understatement coz all of us at home were listening to anniyan songs daily from the day we got our tickets to keep the tempo rising and rising (though the fact remains that it wud have beeen more thrilling for me if it was A.R.R) … come friday and we were there promptly on time bunking our work 😉
Review on the movie is already available in plenty of sites i dont wanna bore u guys with the same stuff again.. but whew i cant stop talking on Shankar and Vikram’s brilliance….. right after the movie, someone asked me what would be shankar’s movie’s theme… coz he has almost dealt with all the things which irritate us on a daily basis…. each of us keep seeing such things done by public on a daily basis and none of us bother to go in and do something about it…. well i am also one amongst of the guilty :-((…. hope an anniyan is born amongst us Indians…. some idiotic fools do need heavy doses of the same stuff to atleast start following some of it……….
the biggest letdown i felt in the movie was its music and the BGM…. probably b’coz am a die hard fan of A.R.R i didnt find it to my liking….. felt that Rahman would have taken the movie to the HIGHEST level… one thing i was happy was that when split personality was handled in the poorest of fashions relating it to ghosts etc in Chandramukhi, “Anniyan” and Shankar has handled MPD in a wonderful way…. hats off…….



  1. Directhit, I can understand your optimism and wish for a better surrondings. I support the same.But the screenplay and plot could have been presented in a better manner.

  4. Not many films have so far come out with practical solutions to the social attrocities..
    In most of the Shankar’s movies, from Nayagan, Gentleman, Indian to Anniyan, the hero takes up the law in his hands and kills the irresponsible officers, politicians, etc, which is nothing other than terrorism and which will not provide a long term, or even short term solution. Instead a hero could be portrayed as a charismatic leader who would take the youth with him and bring about a revolution in the society. He could be a great leader, who has earned good reputation and big mass support, who would use his strength in forcing the government to bring clear-cut laws, (with less loopholes) and who would make sure that they are implemented and abided strictly. Definitely, in the current Indian scenario, a charismatic leader can bring about the required change.
    I feel, in this respect, the movie ‘Tamizhan’ had a different and novel story line with less display of violence. Similarly, in ‘Mudhalvan’ Shankar comes up with some new methods of governance. Hope more of such movies will bring up feasible ideas for the upliftment of our society.
