Bluntly Veerana is trash. Some of the actors act on C-level, the production screams "cheap!", The interface is a disaster, the comedy scenes are rubbish, of genuine horror can Given wild illumination rarely be mentioned. But who Bollywood horror looks at who knows the actually already. The infamous Ramsay Brothers (Purana Mandir), the founding fathers of the Indian cinema goosebumps, are perhaps the best in their field, but even they never made it, within the conventions of Bollywood (Masala of humor, action, music, etc.) to a work Turn that really tugs at the heart. Also "Veerana" does not get the on the legs and should therefore be regarded as a cult object. For then it is fun.
The film plays with the usual genre offerings, of black cats to fog, from witches to black magic, from demonic possession to zombies. Everything is there, and somewhat helplessly bound together. But Ramsay understand it confidently to arrange their pictures so that they reconstruct the atmosphere of horror films of yesteryear. "Veerana" was filmed in 1985 and was due to censorship problems until 1988 to the movies, but looks much older anyway from - and not just because the Ramsay himself drew inspiration from José Larraz '"Vampyres" (1974) alleged that on have seen video. No, it is her directing style, which acts antiquated, somewhere between Hammer horror and American 50's horror with Bollywood exoticism understood.
This mix makes a half hours for crazy entertainment. However, this with voltage through hangers and the above-mentioned problems. Since about the actor. The veteran Kulbhushan Kharbanda than Thakur lived convincingly Gulshan Grover makes a servant Raghu a good figure and the unknown Jasmine makes a sexy witch. Debutante Sahila Chaddha looks cute, but her talent is limited. Rajendra Nath appeared as a comedian thankfully only briefly, Satish Shah gets even more space, but because he plays a horror fan, his jokes are all the same genre justice. Further down the ladder: Rajesh Vivek , who speaks very slowly and allowed charging. And of course Hemant Birje who as Tarzan came to Mini-fame, acting here with the expressive power of a wood pile.
Ramsay fans will not be disappointed in spite of everything in this show because the film offers what the horror-family has made it so popular. But a really good work can be no question - this one has to put up with too much nonsense and plump homemade horror. But since this type of trashy horror, mixed with musical numbers and theatrical overacting now once rare has in world cinema, Bergen Bollywood horror movies Kuriositätscharakter. Thanks absurd ideas, greasy villains, imaginative sets and untamed image design "Veerana" part of the above-average output of Ramsay. To the delight of all lovers of the bizarre cinema.
The British plunder the treasures of India and kill the Indians applied to hundreds. When King Azad Singh (Dara Singh) defends against these escapades of the occupiers, he was arrested and is to be executed. At the request of Lady Helen, he is, however, "only" locked up for life. Dr. Harry (Prem Chopra) who brought Singh by poisoning in the hands of the British, is promoted to mayor. Singh's wife (Nirupa Roy) is chased over a cliff.
They survived, but silent because the magnitude of the atrocities - and because she has lost her baby: on the run she put it namely in the crib of an orphanage, but since the British were there first, was Singh's horse Rani the child to two foster parents. There is growing up without the knowledge of the true mother. When Raju (Amitabh Bachchan) is great, he gets like his father to the British. Not only that. He falls in love even in Harry's daughter Ruby (Amrita Singh).
Manmohan Desai and Amitabh Bachchan were shooting together eight films, including such classics as Amar Akbar Anthony and Coolie . "Mard" came relatively late and it actually show signs of wear. Trying Desai, to beat his films constantly, resulting this time in over the top. Mard is nothing but a trash and Exploitation epic. Spectators wars matter. They made Mard became the most successful film in 1985. It was Amitabh's last smash hit, was followed by a significant drought that lasted until the late 90's back.
Maybe it was because the "Big B" of this type rolling was getting too old (he was 43) and a change from the "Angry Young Man" to "Angry Old Man" was announced? Despite slight aging: Bachchan is still very convincingly in "Mard". The supporting cast he steals anyway easily the show. Desai knows however, that his own star still made no more cinema blockbuster. And that's why he threw everything he could think of, in the plot into: quicksand, Wunderhund Moti, Super-Ross Rani, torture, masks, gladiator fight, lassos, songs, disasters, death, armor, angry Englishman, muteness, Divine Tiger, Sex and even more torture. Mard is hardly something that could whip up the mood further. The plot itself is namely arg thin and had a hundred times.
The songs were not really my thing. Firstly, the melodies heard all about at similar, on the other hand, the staging is a little short sleeves. Striking is "Main Teri Tangewali" aka. "Father Dear Father", in which Desai and Bachchan in Amar Akbar Anthony allude. Otherwise, compared to the excess of mistaken ideas downright good. "Mard" gets just 3 stars, simply because he is so crazy and degenerating that one can not help but be amazed. But he is neither innovative nor artistic value. From Desai and Big B definitely there are better strip!
Thiru (Danush) is a young bum, who despairs his parents, and considers himself misunderstood. One evening after an argument, his father (Mouli) hunting the house, refusing to see him until he was able to earn his own living. He will take refuge in the temple area, where he fell in love for the beautiful Priya (Shreya).
They spin the perfect love, yes, but here it is: it does not have a sub and is rich. His brother Guru (Prakash Raj) is a hard-nosed business man who evidently sees a dim view of his daughter attends a Stand Nickel as Thiru. He even offered him a huge amount of money to renounce Priya, what it accepts. He plans to use this money to get rich, to prove his worth, and finally able to stand head high in front of his parents and his sister ... there he succeed?
The starting point is ultra classic he is poor / she is rich, it is rejected / he will become wealthy thanks to his talent ... but the scenario breaks new ground with a few twists of unpredictable and ingenious situations in a second part that keeps going. The characters are well written, including family Dhanush. The supporting cast, especially the little brother of Dhanush, are excellent. The good surprise comes from Shreya, who in the first part of the film, in addition to being beautiful, has a really consisting role where she is doing very well. She even displayed a certain sense comical that she had not shown before. In the second half it gives way to the clash between long awaited Dhanush and Prakash Raj, equal to himself, as always compelling and charismatic.
Obviously this is Dhanush dominates the film, returning to what it does best: the young. He has not too much to force his talent to lend credibility to his character (after all he is 25 years old this is not really a part of composition). Comedy does not proceed by skits added using actors for the occasion, as is often the case in the masala films. Here humor is well and truly present in the heart of the story, and this is Thiru who is the engine. In his role as young hyperactive, Dhanush demonstrated a perfect comic timing. Add to this dialogue with a line, a well-paced staging, and the result is unstoppable.
Musically the film is also to be classified in the upper basket because the composer D. Imman has certainly achieved its best BO to date. The pretty heady romantic ballad " Vizhigallil Vizhigallil "to the more upbeat songs madhura Jilla, through an old nag dappankuttu well, not to mention the remix of a classic 80s song Ennama Kannu sowkyuma particularly well there's something for everyone.
The imaging is neat, Dhanush and Shriya are well developed in dance scenes that fill their eyes. Technically, without being truly spectacular modest budget oblige the film is treated both in the photograph framing.
In short, you'll understand Thiruvilaiyaadal Aarambam is a very good entertainment, and a great surprise. A film without pretension, to do to relax and have a good time, quite in the style of Thiruda Thirudi, another comedy whose success had launched Dhanush there a few years. This is only the second film young director Bhoopathy Pandian and his sense of comedy is quite exceptional. His first film was as a comedy, and since he has realized another, more tinged action (Malaikottai), who also worked well.
