I – Movie Review (Tamil)

Lot of hype surrounding the movie “I” and with Shankar being the director every reason to watch it. There are other big names too AR Rehman, PC Sreeram. The additional attraction was the character of Vikram from trailers and posters, the female lead Amy Jackson.
Vikram and Amy Jackson have justified their performance. For people who watch Big Boss season 8 would be familiar with Upen Patel (the guy who flirts with Karishma) who as a villan does a good job and Suresh Gopi.

The movie begins with kidnap of Amy Jackson from marriage hall. From then on the movie toggles between the past and the current. Vikram as Lingesan aspires to be Mr India and as a beginning wins Mr TamilNadu. By virtue of fate gets in contact with Diya (Amy Jackson) who wants him to model with her for advertisements. From the time of he winning the title and getting the soft corner of Diya, Linga (name changed to Lee) makes more enemies than friends.
Its all these enemies who come together to plan against him.

The China part of the shooting has PC Sreeram weilding his magic. Any place would look beautiful through his lens and with a breathtaking spot one can imagine how it would be.
AR Rehman is good in certain songs and am still wondering whether this was a semi-musical movie? Suddenly when the movie could have come to an end there is a song and some more sequences.
The songs were bonus to lot in the theater, some went to toilet and some went to fetch beverages!🙂

In the end all is well that is well. Lingesan is back to normal.

Like many other Shankar movies there is loads of graphics, make-up, picturization of song sequences.

With so many good things what is wrong with the movie?
1. It is too long 180mins is just just too too long.
2. Weak script and often told story of love, revenge, love.
3. The movie goes down the tempo lot many times that one feels whether this is Shankar movie.
4. No message or the thump which we have seen in Shankar movies
5. We do not want to see just a love story from Shankar and we still have Endhiran in back of our minds.
6. Poor logic.
7. Too many songs for Shankar’s satisfaction.

I would not say this is movie one should not miss. I would rate it as 1.5/5.

Spoiler Alert, don’t scroll down unless you want to

“I” is a virus, H4N2 chemical name.
Read stem cell therapy!
And any bad virus can be treated by an old doctor only.
Some injection, a bottle of syrup and a strip of tablets!
