How many times the same story is remade has little to make with the success of the movie. Billa falls into that category. Though this is the fourth version of the movie "Don" the director has made sure that the film is little different from the older version. The most important aspect of the film is the style of Ajith, i saw a different Ajith on the screen. Though i am not an Ajith fan, today got impressed with Ajith's style. The director Vishuvardhan has made sure that only the positive aspects of Ajith go to the screen.

Once one of my friends told me the most negative aspect of Ajith is his eyes and the way he speaks his dialogues. You wont see any of these in that movie, bcoz his eyes are hidden behind a neat cooling glass for most of the movie and for a change Ajith speaks as little dialogues as possible. Prabhu impresses in the role he adorns but i have very little clue as to why the audience start laughing when he starts speaking serious dialogues. Nayanthara impresses in few scenes. Namitha as usual, no role in the movie except for an item number. The credit goes to vishnuvardhan for the rich set that is seen in almost all part of the movie. The background and costumes for the actors are well chosen and there could not be a better match.

The movie differs in almost all aspects with the previous version. The entire film is done in malaysia and not even in one scene they come to India. Though Rajini's dance steps are not good his style over shadows that but Ajith's dance was a disaster and it was visible fully in the screen.  Other than that it is a good movie worth watching. Great because of the richness that is visible through out the movie and you get an opportunity to see an entirely different Ajith after a long time.

Life is beautiful

This weekend i got the opportunity to watch the two movies, one of which i was trying to see for a very long time. One was a hindi movie "Kal Ho Naa Ho" and the next movie was "Life is beautiful"(ofcourse with subtitles). Two beautiful movies which created a lot of impact. I had been trying to see "Kal Ho Naa Ho" for a very long time after i heard about that from my friends. It lived upto my expectations.

The next movie which created a huge impact was the film "Life is beautiful". It is an old movie and it takes you back to 1939, and is about the discrimination of Jews by Germans. The story is about a Jewish Father "Guido" who struggles hard to hide the cruelties of war from his son. The entire family taken as slaves by Germans and the rule is to kill the old and the children. Here starts the hero imagination where he explains to his son that they are in a interesting game and with his presence of mind manages to describe  every situation as a part of game. It is the story of how he makes  the life beautiful for his son while it is actually the reverse happening.  A movie worth watching.

A busy week

Had been busy for the past two weeks committing some mistakes and spending the whole week trying to rectify those so could not get enough time to update this blog. Anyway now found some time to do it. Nothing has happened over two weeks. Had remained glued to the computer for around 12 hours from 8.30 A.M to 8.30 P.M. Work in the morning and sleep in the night, that is what i am doing for the past two weeks. Just wondering whether the job was difficult or whether i am wasting time. Nothing much happened  so this post is just a place holder to maintain the habit of blogging :)
