Madras Entertainment Hit $ Get
are movies with weak storylines
that are made good and then
there are movies with good basic
plots that are butchered inexcusably.
Aadadha Aattamellam falls in
the latter category. The movie’s
story talks about the ill-effects
of doing drugs, but sadly the
effort falls flat – courtesy
the slipshod direction, camera,
editing and the sorry performances
After losing her parents in an accident,
Jenny jasmine (Meera Jasmine’s sister
who makes her debut in the movie) raises
her brother Ravi Ganesh. Ravi grows to become
a basketball player and when Jenny is married
he is forced to take up a boarding school
where he is introduced to the world of drugs
and alcohol. With no control over his life,
Ravi chooses the wrong path in life bringing
grief to his loving sister.
Aadadha Aattamellam, as you can see, has
a story with potential that commands better
attention. However, director Azhagar’s
shoddy attempt at direction proves juvenile
as the movie treads its way to the climax.
Ditto for Magi Natesh’s camera that
makes the movie look like an afternoon sitcom
shot sloppily made, since they cater to
a measly number of audience. The lesser
said the better about Rehana’s music
– the songs and rerecording that doesn’t
make an iota of a difference to the movie’s
On the whole, this B grader makes those
boring mid-afternoon sitcoms on televisions
look like Quentin Tarantino movies.
Save yourself, from drugs and the movie!
