  1. Really looking forward to this even if it looks rather too commercial for Ratnam. This might be designed more for the box office than anything else.

        • Enjoyed the trailer in the sense that it seems like a good masala movie, and always a pleasure to see Vijay Sethupati. But I must say it doesn’t seem like a good RATNAM film, in fact the trailer seems to lack his visual signature, and if you’d told me this was by someone else I’d have believed you. It’s been a long time since a Ratnam film couldn’t be spotted from a mile away…

  3. Bhoomi Bhoomi is amazing! Haven’t even been able to get myself to listen to the others more than once because I have just been playing Bhoomi Bhoomi on repeat!

    • Snatches of Kalla Kalavaani were first heard in the trailer in the portion that introduced Ethi, the youngest son and an aspirant to his father’s empire. The song, sung by Shakthisree Gopalan, with a rap portion by Lady Kash, is addressed to and in praise of a kalavaani (a fraud or a thief). Vairamuthu’s lyrics recall the famous Latin phrase Veni vidi vici (he came, he saw, he conquered): Nee vandhu sendranai, ennai kandu sendranai, uyir vendru sendranai.

    The highlight of the event was when Mani Ratnam, Rahman and Vairamuthu were asked to pick their favourite song among those that they had worked on. Vairamuthu chose ‘Uyire Uyire’ from Bombay, Rahman picked ‘Kannalane’ from Bombay while Mani’s choice was ‘Thamizha Thamizha’ from Roja.

    Chekka Chivantha Vaanam was announced as a September 28 release, but there is some uncertainty over this date due to some shuffles in the Kollywood release pipeline.

    • Choosing one Ratnam-Rahman song would be an impossible task, at least from me. But my favorites, at least at this point in time, in no particular order are:

      1)Kannalane (Bombay)
      2)Satrangi (dil se)
      3)Pachchai Nirame (Alaipayuthey)
      4)Yakkai thiri (Aayudha ezhuthu)
      5)Naane varugiren (ok kanmani)

      • I really couldn’t choose a favorite set of ARRs, these vary with time and mood…but for the last few years, “Moongil Thottam” from Kadal has definitely been up there; “Usilambatti” from Gentleman has a rawness that I’ve never been able to assimilate, even as no “catchiness” is sacrificed — truly stunning. Gosh this should be a separate thread….

    • These are fascinating choices from the three maestros…

  5. Like this new trailer more than the first one.

  6. The feedback from the early shows are very very good. Ratnam has a big one happening for him here. And unlike his other movies this will open huge due to Sethupati and Simbu.

  7. Finally got the songs today (still no sign of a CD release :-(): even at first blush this is a superb, stylish album: Bhoomi Bhoomi is outstanding (ARR and Shaktishree Gopalan have been at the center of some of my most meaningful musical experiences these last few years: here, she whispers, soars, belts, all with equal aplomb) and Mazhai Kuruvi is so sweet and wonderful too. Even rap (often an ARR weakness IMO) is done very well here with Hayati — and then there is the central refrain in “Kalla Kalavaani” that tugs at your heart-strings…. ah ah ah, I am sure this album will only continue to grow on me.

    • It looks like MR’s core audience did not like this movie or its musical score. Thats what I deduced from the comments in the BR blog. Even BR, a diehard Mani fan said that the film did not work for him.

      • Haven’t seen the film but the album is fantastic. Much better than OK Kanmani on the whole.

        • Yes, when even BR struggles to find something to praise about CCV you know that Mani has really let his viewers down! I hadn’t listened to the album prior to watching the movie but the film did it no favours. The way the film is cut reduces the music to a cacaphonic background score and there isn’t a single song picturisation worth talking about.

  8. Disappointed with this movie. Never thought I would say this to any movie of Mani Ratnam. Last time I was disappointed was with the superemely artifical BOMBAY. It’s been long since he’s disappointed me.

    I might watch it again just to figure out if I didn’t get it…

    Suffice it to say, this is the ‘LEAST’ challenging script/movie Mani has worked with in a long time..

    The ‘twist’ that everyone’s talking about can be spotted 25 miles away..Or maybe I have seen too many Hollywood films to be fooled by such so-called subterfuge..

    There are moments, but they are few and far between..

  9. CCV was a terrible letdown. It was a highly generic Tamil mass movie; a cynical, brash and soulless endeavour. These are never adjectives I thought I would use with regards to a Mani Rantam film, but then this film doesn’t have the slightest trace of Mani the auteur; it is a calculated concoction that was made purely with the box office in mind. It is perfectly understandable that he wants commercial success but there is no reason why he shouldn’t have imbued this film with both broad appeal and his magical little touches (OK Kanmani being a recent example). CCV is a tired, lazy effort on his part.

    The characterisation and relationships are shallow and evoke neither empathy nor compassion and the women are all docile, decorative props. There is too much vapid showboating in foreign locales and far too little artfulness the filmmaking (he does try something a little different but all it results in is a strangely disjointed and jagged narrative that seems to be a half-hearted experiment for experimenting’s sake).

    I left the cinema as an extremely disappointed and irritated viewer and it’s safe to say that I won’t be rushing to the book a ticket for any of Mani’s movies merely on the strength of his name alone anymore. Next time, I will wait for the reviews and save myself a few wasted hours if necessary!
