Chithiram Pesuthadi

For the past one month - ennakum en thangachikum orai oru kelvi..Is chithiram pesuthadi such a good film? This film made by newcomers is the current sensation in Tamil Nadu..But the fact was that this film was released and it flopped in a week..Then producer Oscar Ravichandran saw this film - and immediately felt that this film was just great..and released the film all over again..With the Vaala Meenkum song sung by the current tamil naatin Michael Jackson Gana Ulaganthan (this guy has a damn good voice contrary to the way he looks :) ) becoming a big hit (even though some would beg to differ ;)) - this film topped the charts..Kumudam gave a 4.0 out of 5.0 and ananda vikatan also gave a mark more than 40..Vikram recently listen chithiram pesuthadi in the top ten list of best films he has ever watched..

Unfortunately the film wasnt released here in London and they dont have an original DVD..So my sister managed to watch the camera copy and she was damn impressed..She asked me to watch it..and yesterday I managed to watch it thru

In one sentence - I am impressed! A damn good film - culd have been in the league of Sethu, Pithamagan and Kadhal if the screenplay could have been made better with the hero dying in the end!..The background music was amazing..songs were good especially the Idam porul parthu song (the musical bit that comes in the beginning is just beautiful)..The direction was very good..and the last twist in the story was quite shocking..

Coming to the performances..the hero Narain (who started his acting career from Adoor Gopalakrishnan's Nilalkuthu) acted really well - even though I felt some of his reactions were bit awkward (even though the director has reasons for it)- culd have been better..Bhavana - was too good! She is damn cute - the voice suited her..and she joins my list of favourite mallu heroines (Asin, Meera Jasmine, Gopika and Padmapriya(even though she is not a mallu by birth) )..and Bhavana is the heroine for Bala's Naan Kadavul with thalai Ajith!

As Kumudam rightly pointed - Chithram pesuthadi - Ravivarma theetiya..

hi arjuna,
read ur review abt the movie.i dont agree wit ur view regarding the sad ending in the movie.actually wat i personally feel is dat recently most of the movies have sad ending especially after the big hit of if this movie had a sad ending,it wouldnt have reached the ppl cos it would have the shades of sethu and kaadal.the best part is dat,inspite of the happy ending,it has impressed many ppl.though there may b flaws in the movie,i would rate it as a best movie this yr.i read ur other blog.u r doing an excellent job.u r very talented guy.waiting eagerly to read ur upcoming ones.

Hi sruthi,

My sister also said the same thing as u said - that if the hero had died it wuld havce been similar to sethu - kadal etc..

Thanks for reading my other blog Sruthi - and thanks for the compliment - I am honoured :)
