Kandasamy – My Review

Saw Kandasamy Yest Evening show at Albert Theatre . The show started only at 7.30 . I liked the movie overall, but none of my friends liked it . Vikram’s officer-look in the movie is definitely a great plus for the movie . Susi Ganesan has tried a ‘Shankar’ though i should say . Camera Work in the Movie is Extraordinary . Better than most Hollywood movies i’ve seen recently . I’ve always thought that the only thing which differentiates Tamil Movies from Hollywood is that our  directors are bound to take films with a standard template format .  Love Sequences , Songs , Item numbers . If you cut off all unwanted songs and masala sequences from Kandasamy, i am sure it’ll be a top class movie .

+

Vikram . His mannerisms, walk, Voice  every thing is a plus. Shriya’s Skin Show, Suchi’s voice didn’t match well at all . She has modified her walk and look . But could have been better.
Camera . Some shots in the boat club were a real treat to eyes . Special Effects . They have worked too much on effects . Songs looked like Advertisements .
Art by Thottatharani . Sets were great . ‘Meow Meow’ song setup was fantastic . BGM was a bit off track . Devi Sri Prasad must have paid a little more attention to BGM .
Vadivelu’s Comedy was as usual historic . Laughed our ass out at the theatre . Prabhu must have been put to a better use.
Screen Play was very fast and energetic. Fight sequences even though good, were a bit lengthy .
Mexico part was very well filmed
Director had tried to tie every possible loose ends in the movie . Explain every single detail which most superhero movies won’t bother to explain

Everyone say it is a mixture of many movies . If you count Prabhu as Police and the hero running around in Expensive Armani Suits and wearing everybrand of Sunglasses present in the market and driving a dozen cars each of different ‘business-quizzer-know-how’ brand, it does look like Billa . If you see it as lots of people working together as a clandestine team for a cause it does look like Ramana . Else if you see it as Hero battling out black money , it maybe like Sivaji The Boss.  No , i didnt count ‘Yaavarum Nalam’ as Vikram comes out with a hammer and all . Don’t be ridiculous . Whatever it may, Kandasamy is a whole new movie with a class of its own . Worth seeing atleast once. I would give it 3 and half stars .

    I too thought, the film was just good! Nothing extraodinary, but entertaining! and yes, its definitely “shankar-inspired”! And Vikram soopera irundan!😉 shreya, as usual…avalukku vera yedhavadhu panna theriyuma nu kooda i dont know! and additional (thevailladha) touch dan namba “item-song”! that cudve been avoided!😀

      First half was more like Paatu-Fight-Romance-Paatu-Fight-Romance . Anyhow they made it up in second half . I actually liked the Item Song. Villain Dancing sema comedy . Athuvum Pole dance irukke .. Adadada. And how did you see the movie first day ? I thought you were busy with work and all😀 .

    ya da… it was good. Compared to other tamil movies it was far far good. i would give 4 stars!😉 This shld do good in box office. Otherwise i’ll stop blaming tamil directors for taking worse movies. Tamil audiences shld appreciate and welcome these kinda good works. let’s see. “No , i didnt count ‘Yaavarum Nalam’ as Vikram comes out with a hammer and all.” LOL!

      If not huge success , he deserves to make his profit atleast . Thanks for noting the Yaavarum Nalam part😀

    I really cant infer what made the producer Kalaipuli S Dhanu waste all dat money on this “visual distravaganza”.. I believe had.. Shriya Saran been chucked out of the movie storyline and all those songs (more than an hour of them, i presume) removed except for one the Cheyaan with deliver boys sing-song.. this movie could have been improvised to an extent never seen before in Tamil cinema.. off course the cinematography is highly commendable.. but why all this masala..to put in a rightful social message??? I seriously feel it’s high time Tamil Cinema shud get over this masala cacoethes, and focus on improving all aspects of the film,.. the mos important of which, i have found to be the script and editing.. i know for a fact that most of the talkies in town are overbooked, but isnt this torture for the tamil ‘makkal’ especially shriya in all those horrendous, loathful song sequences and attire. I had Vikram in high regard, even before Anniyan.. and cant really comprehend at least, why he couldnt put an end to the masala overdose and stick to the core point of the film.. Tamil makkal.. get over this masala-lusting nature and ask for what is more reasonably visually appealing for your 2-3 hrs of dat money.

      I agree . It is like they shot the important and thought provoking shots of the movie first , then shot useless Shriya shots and added them on to it like tomato sauce on sandwich . Hmmm masala is something which tamil industry thrives on . So these movies will look shitty unless that concept is broken . Movies like Kuruthi Punal must rise again . Think what would have happened if Kamal and Gautami had danced for a Duet song shot in the Alps for kuruthipunal . Thats what has happened in Kandasamy . This must be a lesson for all these Concept Directors . Nevertheless seeing the original aspect of the movie , it was a good effort .

    yet to see the movie but when doing big budget films,they won’t take big risk by leaving songs,comedy and fights.Tamil ppl really need everything in a movie to the money they spend.your review is good…

    • August 24, 2009 at 8:21 am

      Hmmm . Thats a valid point . But someone should try it out atleast . How do audience react for a movie with just the juice and none of the extra toppings . Some wealthy producer must try it out😛 .

  5. August 22, 2009 at 9:20 pm

    dei.. shriya is not a Minus to this film… You know how many people go see kandasamy just for Shriya! After all, its a tamil movie…

    ha, saw kandasamy finally. the film had no story, no logic. one person in CBI is able to find everything and do all the stuff !! prabhu is stupid enough in CBI to watch things happen ? Logic is pretty much stupid. Last climax, the bus .. all money and documents !? lol .. If that bus was burnt or accident happen, what happens to the money ? He is pretty much a noob. No clear evidence. Nevertheless, for tamil people, u can make a paper rocket and claim u worked with NASA !!

    for an average 50rupees ticket, shriya’s striptease is an eye treat to TAMIL people. Dont include me🙂

      Ya ya , Definitely watchable . Atleast for all the money Susi Ganesan had spent on Costumes😀 And ya , End of PB was a sudden shock😦 . Should have made two more seasons atleast .

  12. September 3, 2009 at 5:19 pm
