Where do I start and where do I end?
This movie is such a beauteous blend!!
Shaped intact for a roller-coaster run!!
After much hooplah, here is our 'Enthiran'!!

Human beings, they call us! We are lovable, but long for lust. We are kind, but crazy. We are generous, but greedy. We sympathize, but are selfish. We empathize, but are envious. We are truthful, yet tricky.

In a robot's language: We have a green chip, yet we have a red chip. In our simple language: We are good, yet bad. This is the theme that 'Enthiran' revolves around.

Having said that, humans are a mix of ethics and evil, even their creations are pretty much the same, be it a robot or be it a movie.

'Enthiran' is one such movie that has its own 'Red Chips' that are comfortably covered up by its 'Green Chips'.

Enthiran's 'Green Chips':

Direction/Screenplay: All hail Captain Shankar. His dream-project makes us really wonder if we are in our dream-world or we are right awake watching a Tamil movie. Simple story. Yet, a splendid narration. This man with the midas touch never fails. Does he?

Endhiran

Graphics/ Special Effects: If you wonder what is the myth behind this mammoth budget, this is your answer. Man! I tell you. Indian Cinema, for the first time, witnesses so much of grandeur and gala. Are your ticket prices touching the four digits mark? Never mind! Feel happy to watch such splendid sequences made of, with, by and for you people.

Aishwarya Rai: Proves her mettle yet again. Guys out there... Beware! She could drive you wild in spite of being a middle aged woman. She is THE best fit for the character 'Sana'. A lavishing lioness for our leading lion.

Songs/BGM: Allah Rakha Rahman! Now, the name is enough! Why do you even bother? :) And hey folks! Ever listened to the lyrics carefully in spite of losing yourself to the tunes? If not, give an ear to them! One of its kind, really!

Tamil cinema re-defined: With 'Enthiran', Tamil Cinema reaches the next best level. Am sure the movies that are to come are going to have better collections and innovative scripts because their trend-setter is "Enthiran".

Enthiran's 'Red Chips':
A draggy second half: The screenplay and direction take a reasonable dig here, especially with the first forty five minutes of the second session. Shankar could have sharpened it better with a song cut.

Comedy: Santhanam and Karunaas still seem amateurish. High time the guys adapt to larger movies.

The industry is sure in need of crafty comedians considering the recession at Vivek's and Vadivel's office.

Not a vintage Rajnikanth's movie: The movie is certainly not a vintage Rajnikanth's movie. So the expectations from the rural and 'C' center masses could go in vain.

Songs' picturisation: I personally feel they could have been better considering the expertise of Shankar and Sabu Cyril. Nevertheless, they were not less than mind-blowing.

Enthiran's Gold Chip:
Now, this is a special chip. No brownie points for guessing. I was saving the best for the last! The man. His presence. His style. His acting. The differentiations he showed between the roles. Hey you, there! Do you even have the cheek to say that he can't act? Ha ha... Come watch Enthiran to see our Netrikkan's Chakravarthy back.

Plot/Story of the movie:

The movie is not even a day old. So I better not get hit by you all by revealing it. :D

Now, what are you waiting for? Go grab your tickets for 'Enthiran' (only if they are available!)

Now, taking my critic's hat off: Thalaivaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Pinni pedal yeduthuteenga thalaivaa! In spite of knowing that people would still love to watch you throwing cigarettes up and bashing the goondas speaking out your usual punches, you still wanted to do something different to set a trend. There you go.

Whistle podungada! :D

My rating: 7/10

Thanks,
