My Rating

  • Kazhugu - Unexpected 1st Half n Expected 2nd Half

    Kalugu rating: 5 out of 10(Sathish Kumar Mohan wrote on 17 Mar 2012)

    Kazhugu --- Unexpected First Half and Very much expected Second half especially toward CLIMAX makes the movie MEDIOCRE..

    Rain -- Few people pray God that it shouldn't come during their peak season as it may affect their Business...But on the other hand, Farmers and few other people would be praying God for RAIN... Working as GOD is the most difficult job in the Universe :-)

    So, here the director tells the lives of DEAD BODY COLLECTORS who will be happy only when people commit SUICIDE...This is definitely a different PLOT and the team has really worked VERY HARD, especially the CINEMATOGRAPHER to make a FEAST to our EYES in the first half...Most of the scenes looks very REALISTIC and makes us get involved with the movie in the first half without thinking about anything...

    Almost everyone in the THEATER must have been happy after seeing the first half and would have been expecting a CLASSIC in the second half....Here is where the Director has disappointed atleast 50% of the people by saying A REVENGE STORY which we see in 6 out of 10 movies.... I would have said it as 8 out of 10 Movies if it is 2011..But thanks to Aravaan, Ambuli, KSP,NANBAN,etc which were too different and got released this year..This movie would have been easily included in this list and one of the best movies of Tamil Cinema if the director has worked in the scenes before the climax..

    Krishna has really worked hard and have done a neat job..But, he has to improve on his acting skills especially when he is acting with EXCELLENT ACTORS like Thambi Ramiah and Karunas who easily overtake him in few scenes with their comedy and one liners. Heroine, Bindu Madhavi has done justice to her role but due to Director's average screenplay in the second half, she couldn't be praised as much as Maina's Amala Paul...

    The Real hero of the movie is yet again the CINEMATOGRAPHER, SATHYA SIVA..Visuals are really too good..Though the director has not kept many scenes related with DEADY BODY COLLECTORS, he has captured really well in the little opportunity he had..

    Music of the movie by Yuvan is average but background music was too good.."Aambalaikum Pombalaikum" song had everything which a song should have - excellent lyrics, music & choreography...

    Sathya, director has really worked very hard and we could see it in the movie..
    He is really the one to be watched out in Tamil Cinema..He would have hit a JACKPOT if the climax scenes were good in this movie, but misses it by a little margin..Hopefully, his next movie will be a CLASSIC...
