Ghajinikanth - Honest Movie Review

Verdict - “Stereotypical Story! Watchable to an Extent!

Santhosh P. Jayakumar, the director of two crap adult-comedy films has finally made a fair to middling remake movie which was decent, funny and enjoyable in a few aspects compared to his earlier films. We have already watched plenty of movies with similar storylines and what made Ghajinikanth unique was the way it was presented and a few comical scenes which provided relief from the clichéd plot. 

The storyline revolves around Rajnikanth (Arya), who suffers from a memory disorder wherein he forgets his pants, shoes, meet or to respond a person who calls him to his mobile if someone diverts him during the conversation. His absent-minded problem eventually gets him a girlfriend, Vandhana (Sayyeshaa Saigal), and the rest of the movie is all about the chaos caused by his inattention. 

I should say that this a good comeback movie for Arya, who hasn't starred in any notable film since Raja Rani. He was hilarious, entertaining and kept the film entertaining. 

Now, let's talk something meta! Remember when I ranted about Sayyeshaa Saigal’s look in my Honest Movie Review of ‘Kadaikutty Singam’, where I said that I didn’t find her attractive? I would like to apologize for that, as the girl was gorgeous and likable with her personality, expressions and acting in this film. She has been doing back to back films with top actors and I wish her to be successful in her blossoming career.

Performances from ‘Aadukalam’ Naren, Sathish, and Sampath Raj were helpful in making the film not boring, as the movie has overly plain, simple, unimaginative and dull scenes to the point of being boring.

On the whole, Ghajinikanth offers absolutely nothing new in terms of content, the movie is heavily clichéd and doesn’t have any intriguing aspect to recommend off. It’s just another passable film but a decent one from the director.

My Rating – 2.5/5 | Grade – C+ (It Deserves Your Attention for a While!)

Kadaikutty Singam / Chinna Babu - Honest Movie Review

Verdict - “Decently Made Commercial Entertainer!” 

Director Pandiraj’s movies have always been entertaining and commercially successful ones. With Kadaikutty Singam, he has delivered an ideal movie to spend the weekend, a movie which has nothing new to offer yet doesn’t bore us in any way.

The movie revolves around Perunazhi Ranasingam (Satyaraj) and his huge family comprising of his two wives, their children, and grandchildren. The problem arises when Ranasingam’s only son Gunasingam (Karthi) decides to marry Kannukiniyal (Sayyeshaa) when his family members thought he will marry any one of his nieces. The further movies show Gunasingam’s struggle to convince his family members for his marriage. 

Now, we have seen a lot of movies in Tamil which deals with such family issues, what makes this movie unique is Pandiraj's screenplay and his profound execution. I do agree that the film had many cliché scenes but none of them were boring or unwanted, besides, they were refreshing. 

Karthi’s previous film “Theeran: Adhigaram Ondru” was one of the best of 2017, it was intense in terms of script and filmmaking and his acting did justice for it. With Kadaikutty Singam, he turns into a village macho and the role of farmer suits him more than perfect. One thing which I like about Karthi is, he tends to live his character and make sure he does his part with utmost sincerity and completeness. 

I never liked Soori’s comedy lately cause it's boring and unfunny. But he has improvised a lot and teaming up with the supportive cast; he did manage to crack some decent comedy this time.

I have admired Sayyeshaa Saigal since her Tamil debut “Vanamagan”. She was a chubby girl then and her moves for the song “Damn Damn” were stunning to watch. But in Kadaikutty Singam, she seems to have lost lots of weight with clear jawline and I personally didn’t find her attractive, though she did her part as Kannukiniyal, a simplicity loving college girl role satisfactorily. 

This film has a huge list of actors doing supportive roles and everyone essayed the given character to the best of their ability. I especially liked Priya Bhavani Shankar’s (of Kalyanam Mudhal Kadhal Varai soap opera and Meyyadha Mann fame) performance.

D. Imman usually gives quality songs and background score for a movie with village backdrop but his songs were mediocre and didn’t create an impact, at the same time the background score was pretty much satisfying.

On the whole, Kadaikutty Singam is just another regular family drama where the director cleverly crafted the screenplay and added a social message about the importance of agriculture. A worthy film to watch with your family after a busy week. 

My Rating – 3/5 | Grade – B (Worth a Watch)
