View Full Version : kadhal - a Review and discussion

01-09-2005, 03:53 PM
I just read the discussion and reviews for kadhal movie. Since that topic is locked I am starting a new one. The moderators can merge these two posts together is you feel like so.

I saw this movie a week back and I did have to say I liked it. Priyanka.. yep I am also so bored to see all tamil movies making the same concept with no new ideas. I very rarely watch tamil movies nowadays that too only when a movie gets a good review.

But you can watch this movie. This not a different movie. But it seems more realistic without any Normal Tamil hero fights, songs, action scenes.. without the same old same old 'aei' dialogue with fingers pointing at the villains..

Though this movie looks like it is more in support for love yet they have shown the negative side of immatured actions people tend to take in the name love(calf love I would call it). It would give the opportunity for the teens of India who think 'They should love someone in their age otherwise they are out of norm' a chance to see how their life will turn around for the stupid decisions they make.

About the film , everyone have acted well. The plus point of the movie is .. it does not contain the regular cinematic stuff. I really do hate all these yound heroes nowadays..I just couldnt stand Vijay, Ajith etc etc and all their heroism in movies nowadays. This movie and the hero bharath are a change for the eyes. Bharath looks like a real mechanic and the heronine also acted well and looks good irrespective of no makeup in this movie. Regarding the controversial climax.. it is really good to know that there are some people in real life like this person. But I would have wanted the climax scene a bit more rather than just 5 minutes with more explanation. But I just convinced myself saying . pbly the director didnt want to hurt the feelings of the person who told his story by adding masala stuff in the end and wanted those scenes to be very narrow and straight forward...

A very very nice movie after a looooooooong time. Really enjoyed it. The only negative aspect of the movie is as honey said is premature love. No body can expect true love from school students. Thou the story is somewhat usual, it is more realistic. Oru hero 50 per kooda sandai pottu jaikkaraa maadiri kaamikaama yathaarthama kamicchurukkaanga.

First: I watched Azhagiye Theeye and thought .. oh wow.. nice movie.. then saw some stupid movies (attagasam, mahanadigan etc..)
Then comes Kaadhal.
சத்யமா இந்த படம் என் மனச touch பனிடிச்சு. Everything is realistic, simple and believable.
Personally, I liked Samurai too, but never knew that Balaji Sakthivel had such great talents.
Until now, I thought that Pulp Fiction, Memento, Godfather were perhaps the only GOOD films that one could watch.
I was wrong.
"Hollywood.. here comes Bala and Sakthivel with their mighty weapons..stay clear"

Lovely movie.. particularly in praise of bharath, and sandhya- both reallly rellllly good.
All characters have been well worked upon .. true - the story might be real, but the script isn't. That's what makes it cinematic as well as believable.

Love blooms slowly..kills slowly.. without realisation of the ones involved. :-(

The character of சித்தப்பா who embarks on the trail like a onehanded sorry..one man detective, the கெழவி, the அம்மா (who watches minnale and forgets abt her பொண்ணு) and above all the சின்ன பயன்.. மகனெ total scene characterisation. The pizza guy, the celebration really awesome.

Director's trademark seems to have evolved in the scenes : bharath walks and tries to figure out whether to help sandhya out in the first few scenes.. and the clash between the tiffin box of his, and the purse of her's ..nice.

I believe, Bala, Kamal and this guy have the potential to make REALLY good films.

Forget if it doesn't go to Oscars or not.. who cares? when really stupid films get oscars...

..my first ever post..

Hey Dormant ..its good to see your first post. I agree with you. Tamil cinema industry is changed one nowdays. Although we have good directors , they werent ready to come out with new concepts with a fear that the movie will be a flop. look at anbae sivam. such a good movie but still it failed at the box office. (ofcourse kamal will not be discouraged by this and I believe he would continue giving good movies once in a while).
Nowadays people started encouraging good movies and thats why more movies like this are coming out. Its going to become a trend I guess.

Just a tip for you , if you like pulp fiction you might like magnolia and short cuts. do you like tarentino ? then also check out for scorsese movies. I love all his movies ..esp Taxi driver, casino, raging bull etc . why are we not discussing any other movies other than tamil here in Geetham :(

why are we not discussing any other movies other than tamil here in Geetham

No special reason.. :) Just start a topic, and we could discuss...

BTW, I haven't seen kaadhal yet.. but the way you folks have been dissecting it.. hmm.. may be I should..

Thanks, Honeyarjun... guess my weekend is going to be all about 'kadhal..'.. :P

Excellent movie. Really moved by many scenes especially the climax. Watched the movie many times. We need more such good films from Tamil Industry. Hats off to the director, actors and actresses. On the whole, each and every part and aspect of the movie was very admirable.
