Everything that happens is for good (or has a better reason) – that’s the underlying theme for Dasa. Kamal had said in one of his interviews that his 11th role in the movie, that of a screenplay writer is what he is looking forward to and I feel that has turned out to be his BEST role of Dasa 😎
Shortly after the movie begins we are taken to the Nambi and 12th century – Kamal as Rangaraja Nambi (though for 10 mts) is fabulous – the scene where he is being drowned along with the Vishnu statue and the leadup to it is jus a sign of the level of entertainment we can expect in the movie. The movie then moves to Washington DC and we meet Govind the scientist – what happens there and the connection between the rest of the Kamals and a Bio weapon/Sand theft/Tsunami is where Kamal the screenplay writer has excelled in. The first half of the movie races forward in full speed, second half starts off in normal speed and again goes to a full peak finish. Apart from the screenplay and wonderful dialogues (playing with tamil at times) by Kamal, he is superb as Balram Naidu/Christian Fletcher. Asin has done a great job, so has MS Bhaskar. Its a laugh riot in most scenes MS Bhaskar comes 😛 (same with Balram Naidu). Camera work was outstanding and Devisri prasad has done a not bad job in the rerecording (esp the music for Fletcher was 😎 ) Kallai mattum(good camera work) & Mukundha/ Oh Oh Sanam songs wonderfully choreographed – wait & watch Ulaganayagane song. Mallika does what she does best in the Kaa Karupanukkum song.

Krishnaveni Paati/Boovaraghan/Nambi are the next best avatars in order. Climax fight between the Fletcher and the Japenese guy (Narahasi) was wonderfully choreographed – we dont even realise its two Kamal’s fighting 😎 Bush’s mannerisms and his portrayal of his intelligence sooooooooooooooooooper 😛

In short a film not to be missed by anyone – 100% entertainment – easily one of the best screenplays to come out in recent times in Indian films. Btw dir K.S.Ravikumar ?!?!?!? I found his touch only in one cliched explanation given by a doc to avatar singh in the climax

PS : I know this aint a proper review – but dont wanna reveal the story and thrill for the ppl who are yet to see

The only let down for me in the movie was the graphics scenes involving the 12th century drowning and some Tsunami effects – cud have been loads more better!!

YIPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Am going to watch Dasavatharam tonight at 9 PM 😀 😀 😀 am sooooooooooo happy!!

at the same time irked with Ayngaran who is distributing the movie here – any stupid idiotic Hindi movie gets screened in literally 4-5 screens with Net Booking all available and for similar big budget/crowd pulling movies like Sivaji/Dasa etc they dont make available Booking via Net 🙄 and to top it all the people at the theatre literally scream back at you if you call em to find out about the movie release time/ticket distribution time. Theatres in India are far far better with atleast proper response in this regard. GV Yishun seems to be the main theatre with Tamil movie releases and with this kinda customer services its really irritating. Its ofcourse clear that the theatre people themselves aren’t clear of the screening time – what’s more confusing is that Ayngaran claims GV Yishun theatre to be their own and still they dont have a clue on the exact release date/time 😡

ok, now that I have finished my rant, time to gear up for the movie – Being in Singapore has its own advantages like this, being able to see a movie one day before the release in India (even in case of comparing it with Special preview shows in India still we get to see it about 3 hours earlier). Sivaji was one such experience – now Dasa. Can’t wait for the movie – would post my review after the movie darisanam 😎
