Yesterday only i saw the movie Dasavatharam -the magnum opus of the year 2008, though it had hit the screens a two weeks before. Once again Kamal fails to satisfy his audience with his own script. The movie is all about to have Kamal Haasan in ten different roles and for that they have made a story screenplay. I don’t know why they gave a great hype for this film, as its a usual tamil film with Kamal in different roles. Everyone must compromise with the story as it is a tough job to link all the characters within a limited 180 minutes. Inorder to deliver the characterisation of ten different roles the movie has exceeded the 180 minutes mark and this makes the audience much more uncomfortable. The movie looks like a extended version of Kamal’s aalavandhaan where he played two contrasting characters. But in Dasavatharam he had done with loads of makeups but in then different roles. The CG works and visual effects of the film are not upto to the level but its far superior when compared to any other tamil movies especially in the Tsunami climax. Most of the makeups are not looking genuine and character looks like a comic character especially the Fletcher. Kamal’s characters can be identified easily due to over makeups on their faces. But Kamal have done some work by bringing some difference in mannerisms of characters. All this credit goes to the legend Kamal Hassan who have done work perfectly. The stunts are different which we haven’t seen in any of the tamil movies. I didnt like the first fifteen minutes and i think it doesnt have any relevance to the film, but it all depends on the director as they have created a story with ten different roles and it should be that way. Another thing is that why they have made with Himesh rather they would have done with some other Kollywood Music Directors as the song are not much effective and appealing. “Ulaga Nayagane” song which is one of the best in Dasavatharam songs and they spoiled that by using it in the credits section of the movie. And even i thought why they made song sequence in the movie instead they might have had some more BGMs. Its a good sign to see big budgeted tamil movies with Anniyan (2005), Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu(2006)-Under 30 crores, Sivaji(2007)-90 crores and Dasavatharam(2008)-165 crores.

Comments: Watch Kamal in different roles..not to expect more than that..

After I finished my second year exams,I watched a glimpse of this movie வெள்ளித்திரை. Prakash Raj and his team always comes with a message conveying movie. In this movie they have come to say

“கதை தான் ஹீரோவ உருவாக்கும் ஆனா ஹீரோவே கதை இல்ல”.

This is actually a dialogue by Prakash Raj in this movie which depicts the storyline tag. The story behind வெள்ளித்திரை is that two contrasting characters சரவணன்(Prithvi Raj) who is an upcoming storywriting cum director and கண்ணையன்(Prakash Raj) who is walking to get a chance as hero. At one point of time, Prakash Raj gets copyrights of Prithvi Raj’s story in his absence and he becomes a great actor in the fame of Dilip Kanth. Prakash Raj starts doing commercial films which is depicted to Today’s Trend in Tamil Cinema where our present day actors like விஜய்,அஜித்,(too many to mention) do to maintain their heroic image. Prithvi Raj stays in the cinema field as an unknown Asst.Director. Later,Prithvi raj is requested to do a movie with Prakash Raj by a well known producer.Later part of the story is that whether he completed the movie with Dilip Kanth’s cooperation or not. In an interview with Dilip Kanth in the movie, he was interviewed that what he would have become if he hasnt come to cinema and he replies

“நான் சினிமாவுக்கு நடிக்க வருலேனா,சினிமா என்ன ஆயிருக்கும் அதை நீங்க யோசிக்கணும்”.

This reflects the two faces of every celebrity before and after entering the movie field.

Prakash Raj’s other notable works are அழகிய தீயே, கண்ட நாள் முதல் and மொழி which are not of commercial value but still conveying a good message to the crowd.

“aXXo” brands DvdRips October 8, 2006

If you are a frequent Internet user and you search about movies downloads, then you might have come across the the term aXXo.”What is aXXo ?” or “Who is aXXo?” are questions that might be laid in your brains. aXXo is a mysterious person who converts the Dvds into a 700MB file and upload it in the Internet for P2P torrent users to download them free. His Dvdrip torrents are guaranteed that they are ripped to the highest quality possible in dvdrips with pixelating the picture. His torrents are uploaded in the top torrent sites like mininova, torrentspy and isohunt and millions of people downloads his Dvdrips every month. According to New York Times, two suspects have been known to be aXXo by the US police department and his identity is not revealed till today.In one interview he describes himself a male and when he was asked about the copyright laws aXXo replies

“Thank God in this country we don’t believe in copyright infringement. It’s just sharing entertainment, nothing more.”

Due to the popularity of aXXo, many people take advantage to install malwares and trojans on the victim’s system. These fake files may be of RAR files which requires to download a trojan virus and ultimately slows down to your system. In most of the RAR files the archive might be broken,so i recommend to download only a 700MB single file. FxG is also brand name for Dvdrips like aXXo. Anyway for English movies it is always recommended to download only after 1 or 2 months as it might take sometime to release the dvds, rip them and upload it. For Hindi movies, I recommend BrG that might be a single 700MB or 2x700MB or 1.36GB. You can download the PreDvdrips in BMB which might be of viewable quality but not as worse as CAM rip quality. All these I am saying because I am a 24×7 P2P downloader.
