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!!
