    Did not see the movie yet.

    Saw the interview of Karthi,Reema and Selvaraghavan on Youtube (Koffee with Anu). They've given a big hype for the movie without revealing any info.

    But in India glitz and Behindwoods, they've sort of given an impression that it does not mark upto the expectation. Anyways, let's see!

    Krithi, all these shows are same anywhere in the world, I guess, they are just another marketing strategy for the movie.

    Hollywood - All latenight shows will host the crew of the movie releasing that weekend
    Bollywood/Kollywood - Coffee with Karan/Anu - It's always the latest movie crew. I really hope they interview someone other than the dreamfactory :( for a change.

    Here's what I got from sify abt the movie,

    Selvaraghavan’s two years in the making, action adventure Aayirathil Oruvan is a brave attempt at trying to come out with something new in the placid world of Tamil cinema. Breaking away from the shackles of the stereotypes, the director transports us to a whole new world and at the end of it all, we are dumb stuck by the visuals, the packaging and the new way of storytelling. The film has a terrific first half with a basic thread, comedy, action, eye catching song picturisation, stunning visuals and grandeur. The film combines ultra-violent action with murky mysticism. The Government appoints a secret team led by archaeologist Anitha Pandian (Reemma) and a military officer Ravi (Azhagamperumal) to track down the missing links after a scientist and archaeologist (Pratap Pothen) vanishes into thin air while he was on his mission to discover the lost Chola civilization!
    To help them reach the lost city, Lavanya, daughter of the missing archaeologist is roped in for the mission. And helping the group to carry their belongings through the rough and tough jungle terrain and sea is the Coolie gang led by Muthu (Karthi), a boorish, uncouth, foul mouthed guy with roving eyes. They go through some of the most inhospitable terrain full of hidden danger and nature’s fury.
    Suddenly after a tedious expedition, they stumble on the lost Chola civilization and its king (Parthipan) and find unexplained links between them and the world’s earliest culture. What follows is a series of happenings that will leave you glued to the screen.
    The subtle message that Selva tries to convey is that a group of people cut away from civilisation, struck with poverty and knowledge is far superior to the present generation who lack values, culture or basic human kindness. All this leads to some unexpected twists and turns in the climax till you find that history repeats once again as Muthu rescues and run away with the King’s son to the darkness, like what happened centuries back!
    Aayirathil Oruvan starts with a bang, but it doesn’t unfold quickly. The second half looks like another film and there are long gaps of silence in the climax which will make an ordinary viewer restless. Directing an interweaving screenplay, Selva’s narrative structure bursts with sporadic agility along with top class camera work by Ramji.
    GV Prakash’s background score and his music is tangy. Un Mela Aasadhan.. sung by Dhanush, Aishwarya Dhanush and Andrea and picturised on the lead trio is a rocker. The remixed old MGR song on Karthi and the coolies is a treat.
    Reemma brings an uninhibited joie to her role as Anitha and thanks to the ability of the director has extracted a fine performance from her. Andrea is likeable and seems to have enjoyed doing the film. Parthipan is adequate as the king. But it is Karthi, who is a scream. Right from his introduction scene till the end, he is lovable and provides humour. Actually Karthi with his punchlines is getting the loudest claps as the crazy MGR fan and has made a sensational comeback three years after his debut film.
    The film has to be seen in the right perspective. Selvaraghavan is trying to explore the frontiers of commercial cinema. For this alone he should be applauded.


    ----------------------------
    I don't think its going to be a great blockbuster but again critics have their own opinion and opinions do differ.


    Makkale, do post your views about the movie. I would love to watch "Kutty" than "AO".

    If so, you should see the original movie Arya, the Telugu version, I have a feeling it will never be as good as this one ;) but if you are a theevera rasigai of Dhanush :mrgreen: go for it ;-)

    I read in a forum that thalaivar called dhanush and congratulated him for his performance in kutty. He was so excited that appa himself called as thalaivar has never done this before.

    Apdi enna daan irukkunnu pakkanum. Not that I'm a theevira fan of anyone except "Boss", but I like dhanush's way of delivering dialogues. He's far far better than the new ones out there and his accent and style is far better than vijay's, enna sollare? Vijay fans, enna adikka varadeengo, edho en pattukku oru opiniona thooki potten avalavu daan.

    But it doesn't mean that I won't watch AO. Thriller padam tamilla na summava. Dhanush song "Ummela asa daan" nanna irukku (don't go into the lyrics just the tune and their voice sync)

    Hi,

    I happened to watch AO on Pongal day and was actually waiting to write a review on it...This movie must serioulsy top the chart when it comes to usage of bad lang,bad scenes etc...The first part of the movie was a real visual treat..the locations were awesome..but our directors should realise that a movie cannot totally depend on the location..I guess that's what selvaraghavan has done!!!
    We went for the movie with our family and in the second part of the moview it was actually embarassing to sit through most of the scenes!!:-(
    samma mosama irundhathu...
    It was like watching 2 diff moview with absolutely no connection....
    And not to mention,I think that our Censor board have gone for a vacation..to allow such bad lang and scenes...:(
    On the whole..AO is a major disappointment!!!
    I think what the director meant by keeping the title as AO is "Only one amongst thousand people can watch this movie and survive to talk about it" :)

    mamtha
