I am getting mixed response for Dasavatharam. And one of my friends told me my review was the only positive review she read. And this is what butterfly thinks. She is confused. Lol! Where is wickedtaurus? She is one person in the US who has seen the movie and the one I haven’t heard from. The movie does confuse you. It takes a while to sink in. You have to think for two minutes to decide whether you liked the movie or not. Another friend couldn’t decide and this is what I replied- “It’s kinda confusing. The movie, story, concept, idea is good. And because they also wanted it to reach the masses like a Rajini movie, they’ve done a lot of things(including mallika, himesh, the hype etc). Kamal confessed this on ndtv. So i am guessing it didn’t turn out how he wanted it to be but he doesn’t mind. This is how kamal would make a super hero mass movie, in my opinion. With everything thrown in for good measure.” But I do think it’s a good movie. Kamal also said he wrote all the 10 roles with him in mind. I don’t think it’s wrong if he wanted to make a movie that is so full of himself. I like that in fact. I think Sudhish puts it very nicely!
And I saw Aamir. It is probably not entirely original but the movie rocked. It would probably turn out as the Johnny Gaddar of 2008. It has an equally good soundtrack. And the movie is definitely way better than the ok-ish Sarkar Raj, which I thought was good, only in parts.
Update: I just heard the complete soundtrack of Aamir and it is chingmingphingzing awesome!! (celebrating someone’s return :p) Do get your hands (or ears if you will) on it soon!
