  1. This will do very well….Malyalam original rocked and I know the story and subject is great. It also did great in all the remakes and now Kamal Hassan is doing its Tamil version now and Ajay doing the Hindi version.

    • I like Devgan a lot but I cant help but feel he is a miscast for this role. The role needs an actor who can pass off as a common man. Someone shorn of mannerisms and with an ability to behave normal. This is easier said than done when most of our actors actually ‘act’. There was a reason why the originals were done by Mohanlal and Kamal, they are great ‘actors’ who don’t ‘act’ and can pass of as a normal person – More so Mohanlal who is a delight to watch him. He will do things like adjusting his ‘veshti’ (dhoti), spitting orange seeds while eating (just giving examples) tiny mannerisms which comes naturally to him while behaving like any other commoner. There is no heroism in the character, the heroism comes from the fact that he wants to protect his family badly.
      And Shriya Saran is so wrong for this character. She is too ‘perfect’ to be cast as an ordinary housewife. Tabu should have been playing that role. Tabu is here too but in the Asha Sarath role. I wouldn’t have minded Irfan Khan being cast here for the Devgan Role. Its unfortunate but I cannot think of one ‘proper’ Hindi hero who can do this common man role convincingly, maybe Anil kapoor is the best I can think of from his earlier days.
      Maybe casting Devgan was the only choice here considering they want to balance the saleability factor too with the story line.
      In a bizarre way, I feel it would have worked if they had twisted the story of this common man, and made the housewife as the protagonist and kept the essence of the movie. They could have kept the budget down too and there are enough good actresses now (Tabu, Balan etc) who could have pulled the twist in the movie with elan.
      All in all this is a highly recommended movie to be watched, specially in Malayalam where Mohanlal is just out of the charts as far his portrayal is concerned!!

      On Malayalam movies, Did Saurabh or chipguy catch Oru Vadakkan Selfie?

      • I feel this movie will work for Devgn. He badly needs a hit.

        Krish, No I didn’t see Oru Vadakkan Selfie yet. I’m way behind on my movie watching. The last one I caught was Munariyippu on Saurabh’s strong recommendation and really loved.

        • CG: Said it elsewhere, but do check out Iyobinte Pusthakam as and when you get time. Not that it is a classic or anything (I will say that Amal Neerad missed an opportunity to make a truly brilliant film here), but is a fairly strong film nevertheless. What really made the film for me though was the impeccable casting (it’s an ensemble film in the true sense; incidentally thought Padmapriya easily steals every scene she is in…). I don’t want to oversell the film, but inspite of it not having the most novel of plots (or narratives), I was gripped throughout the film’s running time. It will easily be considered another feather’s in Fahadh’s cap. I am yet to see Varsham though.

          I also caught up with Fahadh and Radhika Apte’s (whose has been made to look eerily similar to Nazriya here) “Haram” which turned out to be a complete disaster. it does have some interesting ideas, but the final film is really bad. I couldn’t believe Fahadh and Radhika (whom I adore) starred in this…this is actually the first truly poor Fahadh film I have seen (what I will give the film though it does have some really interesting ideas at script level. So run-off-the mill it most certainly isn’t. But the execution seems amateurish, the director is a debutante here and I don’t think he knew how to handle the subject. The most off-putting thing here is that Radhika’s voice has been dubbed…this might not have been a huge problem with some other actor, but because Radhika has such a uniquely sexy drunken-slurred way of speaking that the dubbing just put me off completely).

            Saurabh, must have missed your previous comment on Iyobinte Pusthakam. Good to read your views. This is certainly on my watch list- I have the DVD, but just haven’t got around to watching it. I also have Varsham and Mili so hopefully will manage to catch these soon. Will cross Haram off for sure.

      • Krish: No I haven’t seen Oru Vadakkan Selfie. I only get to see Malayalam films when they are out on the net (with subtitles). I actually haven’t seen any of this year’s Malayalam releases apart from Haram (which was quite poor).

        • BTW Premam is getting rave reviews. I liked Neram which was the directors earlier movie. Nivin Pauly is on a roll. Huge hits one after the other.

            Yes, the reviews and WOM are incredibly positive. Nivin has certainly figured out how to pick his movies well.

  2. Good part is movie shooting just started and its releasing on July 31, 2015. That is one of the reasons Ajay accepted this movie as Shivaay got delayed and he had no other release for long time.

    Look at the expression of police constibe standing left side of Tabu. His eyes are fix on something.

  6. Though Tabu is a great actress, they should have taken someone with better star credentials to pull in the audience. Idea will kill me for this comment! But I think someone like Rani would have pulled both class and mass audience to some extent. Especially after her Mardani act.

    Like

    • No point for Rani to act in a sidey cop role when she just delivered a hit film doing full on cop role. This movie is about Ajay Devgn’s character and cop is not the leading role. Also, I don’t think anyone would offer her movie post marriage unless she announces that she’s planning to work.

    • sanju!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i will definitely think of killing u if u ever compare tabu and rani again …………:-) just kidding. I think the role must be a layered one and rani has never – N E V E R – ever shown the kind of depth which Tabu is capable of portraying. It is not that rani is a bad actress – it is just that Tabu is a class act 🙂

    I saw her on TV Ek ghar banunga and she was quite effective as an ideal bahu(what else ).

  9. Tabu in Hindi and Kamal in the Tamil version, just released. These actors are the main draw, for me at least. Wish to watch Gautami too.
