The title says it all. Saw the movie yesterday.
Liked it a lot. The chief reason being, Vadivelu.
An amazing actor. Real fun to see him with the curved up mustache.
The whole movie is just mindless and senseless humor.
For people who expect movies to be logical, better avoid this one.
The movie's strength lies in its irrationality and illogicity ( For those who are wondering whether illogicity is a valid and established word, I checked it. It is :)).
Whatever the critics might say, worth the money you pay for a ticket.
Though it isn't as funny as one would like it to be, the movie still entertains.
The plot is very simple, twins are separated during birth by the scheming back - stabbing
Raja-Guru ( Chief- Tutor). While one ( the 23rd Pulikesi becomes a puppet and a pawn in the hands of the Raja-Guru , the other twin, Ukkrabuddhan goes on to become a great warrior ( who later becomes the savior)
Meanwhile the innocent Pulikesi is brain washed to extend full support to the British regime in India. Ukkrabuddhan saves the day, by the age old double-act. By swapping places with his twin, defeats the British and reforms the Raja-Guru . All live happily ever after.
The movie is simple and straight forward.It doesn't carry stupid sentiments and is a welcome change. A decent movie which can be watched by anyone. After so long a family entertainer in its truest sense. The movie has its own setbacks too , like for instance the music could have been better. The plot could have been made lot funnier . But if we don't encourage such movies right now, then there might come a time, when only "Dada"type movies are produced.
This may not be the best effort, but nevertheless it is undoubtedly a good effort.
Can definitely be watched once. :)
