Ayirathil Oruvan (Tamil) – Movie Review

First, kids below 10-12yrs of age? Parents, leave them home, don’t take them along to watch the movie. Are you heart patient or pregnant woman, refrain from watching this movie if you are faint hearted.
This movie is not for kids, heart patients & pregnant women. This should have been clearly published at the beginning when one buys the ticket and later at the counter.

A very detailed analysis has gone in before making of this movie. This movie does not have relevance to the incidents that happened centuries ago. Selvaraghavan should be credited for the efforts in making a historical movie combined with todays world, with a touch of romance, emotion, quarrels and glamour.

The Cholas vs Pandians. How Cholas protect a deity and Pandians want to get it from Cholas is a thin storyline. One has to cross 7 hurdles before they reach the Chola village. But how it has been shown to the viewers matters. A brief switch to flashback when the movie starts and then moving over to current state.

An archealogical research into finding the lost empire and what happens next forms rest of the movie.What happens when three people are stuck together in middle of nowhere without food, water & shelter is also shown well.

In current scenario, we are so much stuffed with commercial movies that one would wonder if this movie will go well with audience. It definitely would and there would be repetitive audience. The 2nd half of the movie draws ones attention and need to be watched carefully. If not, the review would definitely be bad.
Do not watch the movie like you would watch 3 Idiots, Kutty. If you are a person expecting movie of that kind then better stay away. This is not for you.

If you can relate the first scene and the last scene and connect it, there could be no sequel. Just going by the ending there could be a sequel. Whatever Selvaraghavan has clearly redefined non-commercial movie making.

  1. I watched this movie and was really disappointed. Though the movie has some pace story-line in the beginning, but it slows down very much in the second part and also it left me confusing.

    As you say “If you can relate the first scene and the last scene and connect it, there could be no sequel. Just going by the ending there could be a sequel. Whatever Selvaraghavan has clearly redefined non-commercial movie making.”, if you could just write a line on what is your thought of not making a sequel will definitely be helpful.

  2. A brilliant review!A outstanding movie. I DONT KNOW Why some people are saying disappointing! What to disappoint in this movie. This movie is one of the masterpiece in Tamil movie industry. May be the masala movie fans might dislike it. But, the people who have a class taste, then they would fall in love to this movie. Really, a new and unexpected trend in Tamil cinema. Hats off to this movie!

  3. this is a fantastic movie there is nothing here to dislike but the movie even makes so much reality the only movie which we can compare with this is yodha which is a malayalam movie in which mohanlal acted the graphics facility is what we really lack in india if the graphics was better the film will b totally outstanding the songs was great (all songs)but i think
    it will be great if a sequel for this is created which says again a story of revenge , and am hopefully waiting for it
