      Default Hero ~ An Opinion

      Venue ~ INOX,Shobha, Thrissur
      Showtime ~ 10:30 AM
      Status ~ 7 People

      The problem with the current commercial filmmakers of Tamil movies is that they get only technically updated while the storytelling remains same. To make it look unique, they will bring a relevant issue. Lets talk about HERO;

      Hero makes his intro with a song (instead of a fight) and looks at the audience each time he sings the lines as if he is going to be the next TN CM. Then comes a heroine (in current style, she must be independent, benevolent with principles & yet white skinned) and the hero falls for her. There will be 20-25 mins for heroine to establish herself and after that role kedayaathe. Then the villain makes his entry (in current style, he is shown as rich and sophisticated with a corporate tag) and to show how cruel he can be, he will do something onscreen to earn audience wrath. Once the Flood Blood is drawn by the Villain, the Hero rises above romance, comedy to be the Hero. Then there will be some issue drawn into the story and visuals of people suffering from it (mostly in villages) and wailing is shown. Finally Hero defeats the Villain (In current style, there is no go n bash up 30-40 people and then Villain..There is a cerebral intelligence to finish off the villain).

      P S Mithran used the exact formula to tell the story and this is something I have been seen in Tamil cinema since Shankar days and no Murugadass, Atlee etc. I have to accept that the first half was watchable because the issues conveyed by the director and the story idea. But with all those clichťs popping up without any sign of embarrassment. I loved the interval punch but after that when Mithran try to make regionalized version of Batman meets Zorro, things gone out of hand. Even when the director didnít get a seamless transformation from Common Man to Hero, he made it look further worse by not giving enough scenes for the Hero portion. Maybe he ran out of ideas. The character sketch is an absolute rehash of Batman. Since there is no limit for science, the director threw the logic out of the window. It looks funny when he tries to give a logical explanation to it. The climax scenes were nothing but cringeworthy. All those wailing on TV, The stadium scene...WTF??

      Sivakarthikeyan was an absolute failure when he donned the HERO role. Initially there is a clear imitation of Rajnikant but the charisma wasnít there. A movie like this especially the climax requires an actor with charisma which unfortunately he didnít have. Arjun on other hand stole the thunder each n every scene. There are references to his Gentleman which hints that the character is the same. Kalyani Priyadarshan made a forgettable debut in Tamil not cause of her performance but because of her poor character. Did they both fell in love?. While Ivana made her role memorable with her performance. Seems like Murugadass has started the trend to import Non Working Bollywood Actors to play Corporate Villains. Still Abhay Deol did extremely well with his cardboard character.

      I didnít find any songs good while the last song sung by Ilayaraja was taken from Rajaís own Guru Theme. There is nothing exceptional about the technical side which includes George Williams cinematography.

      Thanks to @sethumadhavan, I went with negative expectations. Maybe he helped me to sit through those last 20 odd minutes of crap. Those who wanna go for a try, go at your own risk...else can wait for Amazon!!!

      Basic problem is- they want to make a superhero film, but don't want to go completely superhero! First 30 mins has to be typical SivaKarthikeyan stuff...
      Loser/Loafer/Fraud hero with a sidekick (here it is RoboShankar instead of Soori)
      Ghajini's success has inspired a generation of filmmakers to make their heroines Xerox copies of Kalpana - same here.
      And as said in the review, Kathi's success has inspired a series of corporate boss villains.

      EVen then, the movie could have been saved in the second hour had they gone comepletely superhero. Instead Kandhasamy meets Velayudham style entho onnu. Athinu idakku Batman inspired suit and Batpod pole oru sadhanam - all this for one scene. ANd we have a 10-year old kid who nvented a genetically modified mosquito also working on material science, robotics and hacking satelites. Amazing

      Final touch - 10 minute long sermon by the hero. And where did the villagers get identical masks from in a matter of minutes! LOL.

      Oru sci-fi movieyil athokke sahikkam..pakshe full sci-fi aayi edukkan makers thayaravanam. For eg... MIBil memory wipe cheyyunna flashlight ille..athu belivable alle, that is bcos makers go fully into the genre. Ivide adya 30 minutes regular commercial format aakkanam ennu nirbandham, romance venam ennu nirbandham, climaxil hero 10 minute prasangam nadathanam ennu nirbandham, pinne idkkidakku contemporary issues vachu dialogues adikkanam ennu nirbandham. Pinne engane aa cheriya gadget okke impact undakkum..athu comedy aavum!
