Tamil Movie pick of the month: 7 aum Arivu ...


Image credit: unknown

A much hyped movie for this year made with a big budget ($17 million). A different story line but you can pretty much predict the happenings. The documentary style introduction does not help in entertaining. Not a must watch but you can watch if you are looking to spend around 2 and a half hours.

Rating:*** [3 Stars out of 5]
Theme: Sci-fi thriller based on Bodhidharma's history.
Audience: PG13 (Age 13+) - Some violence and questionable costume selection in songs
* Bodhidharma's costume.
* Johnny Tri Nguyen's portrayal as villian.
* Creates some awareness about Bodhidharma's history and India's treasures.
* Genetic mapping, Gene awakening - Hmmm.. looks like it is targeting well educated audience. Common audience will never understand the ballyhoos in the movie.
* Has educational value but lacks entertainment value.
* Shruti Hassan, Harris Jeyaraj, Suriya ... Where are they? Only Johnny Tri Nguyen remain in your mind.
* Screenplay lacks novelty.
* Story path jumps from Bodhidharman's history to gene mapping to epidemic creation to gene awakening ---- Does the story has to be so complicated? Looks like the team overcomplicated the story. Hope they keep it easy next time.
