Enough of all the Multiple Personality Disorder
debates. If we can google and find what is
Chaos theory,then... Got it? Fine.
That is the knot of Anniyan movie.
A small negligence by a human being may lead to
a catastrophic end.A four-wheeler who violates
the overtaking rules and blocking the
ambulance(No,I am not referring the Bangalore
traffic!) is virtually killing the person inside it.
A small mistake..but a deadly end!
You need guts to build a story on that theme.
Shankar has that.
Director Shankar sacrificed the first 30 minutes
of the films pace just to explain this theme.
The Hero of the movie Ambi(Vikram) is a martinet
who hate disorders. He just wants to see an
utopian world in place,but gets traumatised by the
chaos,negligence by each and everyone, which
makes him to acquire a MPD who is nothing
but Anniyan. He ruthlessly kills the people
who violates the rules.
And another MPD is Remo, a modern macho with
a "US return" kind of accent and this MPD happens
just to make Nandhini(sada) fall in love who
Vikram.Well, the ability to distinguish the facial
changes and body language of two contrasting
characters(Ambi and Anniyan) with an
elan in a split second(during Prakash raj
Interrogation) speaks he is at par with our own
yardstick for acting-Kamal Hassan.
Sada...Yes,I switched my loyalty to sada now.
The "Iyangaaru girl" role suits her.She is beautiful.
Prakash raj is good,as usual.Sujatha's dialogues are
as sharp as a razor edge.
Stunt scenes are stupefying, that too the fight
with karate students(Is it karate?) fills us with
a sense of astonishment. It resembles me of
Jackie chan movies.By the way who is that
stunt master Peter Hayen? Is he new to kollywood.
Harris Jeyaraj is at his best.My colleagues
started commenting that even I recognize raga.
Yep,Iyangaaru veeta Azaghe is dulcet in
Naatai raga(remember Chennai Senthamil...song).
The picturisation of all the songs are feast to
Seems Shankar bounced back with a vengenance
after Boys. A strong message to the society,
with a very talented and commited actor on his
side and accompanied by veterans in the
respective field,Sabu cyril for art direction and
Sujatha for dialogues,he almost did it again.
Some of my friends keep telling that the movie
would have been good,had the first half
been a bit fast..
I dont believe in "First half is slow, second half is
good" kind of comments. The movie is good.
