Pudhuppettai’s half century
July 28, 2006
Dhanush’s Pudhuppettai recently completed its 50-day run in the city. The movie directed by Dhanush’s brother Selvaraghavan carried a lot of expectations on it’s shoulders. Selvaraghavan had an impeccable record of hits in the run up to Pudhuppettai and his combination with brother Dhanush had already given us the mega hit Kadhal Kondaen.

All these factors resulted in the movie getting an almost unprecedented opening throughout the state, especially in Chennai. The opinion about the film too seemed to be good, but due to inexplicable reasons the initial enthusiasm could not be sustained. The collections of the film kept dropping steadily and the move to the 50th day has not been an easy one.

The movie was even critically acclaimed, both for it’s strong characters and technical perfection.

The movie was actually shot in the 35mm format and then blown up into 70mm to give the entire movie a rough feel. Some important fight scenes were also shot with a new type of camera. Also the performance of Dhanush and Sneha in the film has been appreciated.
Then why did the movie not rock the theatres? The overdose of violence and bloodshed in the movie seems to have put off a few viewers and kept families away from theatres. Knowing Selvaraghavan, it is unfair to expect him to go in for subtle filming. Dhanush also seems to have the same opinion; ‘what needs to be shown has to be shown’.

In spite of all this, the movie is being considered as a success and has given Dhanush a much needed him the much-needed hit. He is now busy with his Thiruvilayaadal
