Yesterday night, I decided to watch the famed and much awaited ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ Rajnikant starrer 3-D animation movie at the AGS Cinema Multiplex, OMR Road, Chennai, along with my family.
The film, set in a bygone era, encompasses elements such as bravery, jealousy, revenge and inspiring leadership. KS Ravikumar binds them all with a gripping screenplay which soars particularly in the second half and he proves that he is a master at his game. His story gels well with the period and the characters being portrayed on screen.
Though the story isn’t a big bash, it is the screenplay which is well balanced with romantic, sentimental and thrill-filled happenings along with enough and more mass moments for the fans to cheer about. Soundarya Rajnikanth’s direction is apt, and the duo (with KS Ravikumar) must be lauded for their creative ideas at many instants. Had this been an actual film, it would have touched the skies.
Kochadaiiyaan is by far a new attempt in Indian Cinema, and credit goes to the humongous crew for this film, which carves a new benchmark. However, the animation is a big flaw for the film, as it cracks a crater in its final show. Spare a thought since it’s the first time, and go watch this spectacle for it does speak of some superb popcorn entertainment.
