He who comes back just

He who comes back just after his marriage is not afraid of hot babes :

Apologize me to copy the tag-line of Shankar’s Anniyan. The original tagline goes like this- He who comes from hell is not afraid of hot ashes. The red tint in the promos and the teaser gives an eerie look to the movie. But the black devilish coat of Vikram and the long axe in his hand are similar to the killer costume of the film I know what you did last summer and is misleading many to think that Anniyan is a remake of this English thriller.

As the news reports say Anniyan is renamed title of Robot. It was originally proposed to star Kamalhassan and was supposed to be shot for 2 years. Since Kamal later dropped off from the project because of the long shoot time. Two years would be costly time for any star to work in one project. It is said that Shankar changed the name and a little bit of story to shorten the production schedule.

But for Vikram this is the longest running call sheet ever. In his interview he remarked that he has allocated more than 100 days continuously for Anniyan. With Shankar roping Harris Jayaraj in place of A R Rahman, the music industry and the fans are out to see how Harris Jayaraj fills the Rahman vacuum in a Shankar film.

Ever since I saw Atharmam (the film by film institute students starring Murali and Nasser on the life of Veerappan), I was sure that Manikandan’s camera eye would be rewarded. Here is his biggest break to work with Shankar on a movie with a different feel. I am sure Manikandan would be among the top cinematographers list after Shankar’s Anniyan.

Writer Sujatha is back with his dialogues after his street smart, controversial dialogues in Boys. But ‘Jeyam’ Sada as the heroine makes me a little curious about her role. Probably she has a good role to play.

As Sujatha remarks in Katrathum Petrathum, Shankar’s Anniyan should be out for the coming Diwali. We all have a curious diwali ahead to celebrate with Anniyan.

  1. Definitely Chiyan Vikram’s Anniyan Will Smash the Kollywood Box Office with enormous collection and vikram will be the top hero of this year and he will recapture his fame from this film

  2. Definitely Chiyan Vikram’s Anniyan Will Smash the Kollywood Box Office with enormous collection and vikram will be the top hero of this year and he will recapture his fame from this film

  3. I hope Vikram is able to smash the box office with this movie. He’s a very talented actor and we need people like him to show that South Indian cinema is in fact home to talented people.

  4. anniyan will not be successful as shankars previous movies, because people will never like his commercial movies, is better to watch an enlish movie rather than watching shankars fake movies.

  5. shankars anniyan will not fullfil the music industry, anniyan is going to be more catastrphic for shankar, and there will be a big vaccum in the music, because of inferior quality music.(at technical level.)

    jassie gift will be a good singer in future of tamil film industry

  24. GROUND SITUATION

    Still OSCAR FILMS is finding it difficult to sell the film to overseas distributors.

    The primary International Tamil Film Distributor based in the UK, Ayngaran International has refused to buy and distribute the movie due to extremely high price. Turn over of most of the High Budget Indian films depends on the screening in Europe, America, Middle East Asia and Australia as the ticket prices are high. Shankar’s last film Boys was a flop in Tamil Nadu. (It is true that it was a huge hit in Sri Lanka. But Sri Lanka doesn’t have a big movie market to have huge returns.) This could be one of the reasons for Ayngaran International to take a risk with his new movie ANNIYAN. Shankar is an out standing director in the Tamil Film Industry. But it doesn’t give an assurance that all his films will be block buster hits. The new concept in Narrow Market Film Markets is to invest less and have high percentage of returns. Rajini’s Chandramuki was made just with US$ 150,000 (Six Crows Indian Rupees) and the return was five times. The producer was very intelligent. A one year full of work, US$ 900,000 investment and if the profit is going to be as little as 10% would be a real loss for the producer. Tamil Film makers should be encouraged with Low budget high return films. If Tamil Film makers really want to do high budget films, they should follow the business concepts of Honk Kong Film Makers where they find huge markets in the US with their high budget films. Tamil Film Producers should learn a bit more about business and think realistically.

    Now Oscar Films trying to sell the film directly to the distributors in the prospective countries after the dispute they had with Ayngaran International due to the sales of ANNIYAN. If they fail to sell directly, ANNIYAN’s release will be delayed and also it can become a financial flop.

    Guys at Ayngaran International hope that V Ravichandran, the producer of the movie will reduce the selling price of the overseas rights and come to a negotiation with them. Otherwise this scenario will become a big threat to Tamil Films marketed overseas.

  25. advice to guys criticizing shanker:if shanker is provided with enough funds(like in hollywood)he will definitely make better movies than hollywood pictures.he made a common indian man to see 7 world wonders just for rs 20.00.he is the only down to the earth director who proved indian movies can do wonders in the film industry.i am proud that he belongs to our country.it’s not a loss for him becos of a r rahman.it’s a loss for a r rahman since shanker is the only director who can picturize his songs in a grandeur manner to give perfection.now luck has gone to harris.arr music was taken to the hearts of all ABC crowds cos of shanker (not due to maniratnam).arr music was not good in ayutha ezhuthu and other recent movies.
    shanker can make magic with any person eg-arjun,prabhu deva,prashanth,kamal
    rahman u have missed shanker
    shanker thrilled us in indian
    he is going to mesmerize us in anniyan cos of terrific actor vikram
    shanker- innovative-entertaining-terrifying genius director who cannot be compared with anyone

  26. kaml is the best but they try to improve to bring the film in the internationl level its a try man lets say good luck .but look forward to the movie maruthanayakam which will bring the oscar nomination for kamal.

  27. all the best anniyan rivets ajith, vijay,

    tamil industry afraid of anniyan to know what is in it????????????????

  28. The sun-warmed conclusion which had been gradually obtruding itself upon my quarrelsome and bleacher-type mind was now an imperial certainty.
    I will tell only of the delightful tomb in the wealthiest of the hillside retractable awning reviews, the unchanged tomb of the Hydes, an couple and incorrigible family whose last nine-game descendant had been laid within its bony retractable awnings maine many decades before my birth.

  29. we are all waiting for the release of anniyan… and it comes out well… Shankar should go to hollywood and make movies because that’s where you get rich producers who can afford him and get a good output… directors like shankar and manirathnam do not only belong to tamil cinema but world cinema on the whole…

  30. OH GOD IT IS TO BE FINALLY RELEASED ON JULY18,2005
    IF IT FLOPS LIKE BOYS VIKRAM IS Ouuuuuuuuuuuuttttttt!!!!!!!!!

  31. Anniyan will punish the following soon.

    1.Directors who give over build-up about their films and make films far below the expectations.
    2.Directors who cheat the audience by saying that they have made a high budget film.
    3.Directors who make their Producers, beggars by wasting their money on unnecessary things such as painting a whole village.
    4.Directors who make film without logics.
    5.Directors who believe that they can always cheat Tamil audiences.
    6.Directors who make a remix out of their own old films.
    7.Directors who make the people watch their movie by cutting lectures, not going to their office and wasting a full day waiting in a queue to watch a two and a half hour movie. These kinds of acts lead to unproductively and the respective country will never be developed like Malaysia and Singapore.

    Anniyan will do “Kirumi Bojanam” very soon for the directors who didn’t give enough “Bojanam” to his audiences. He doesn’t like suppliers who don’t care about customer satisfaction.

    Ambee careful!

  32. good Job vikram and the crew…..super movie!
    vikram u make a super action in this film…
    u will win the OSCAR AWARD man!
    God bless u………

    I KNOW WHAT U DIDT LAST SUMMER! ANNIYAN!/

  33. Anniyan was well worth the hype. Well, it is in many ways quite similar to his earlier ventures like Gentleman and Indian, where one man tries to bring about a change to the society. But is an absolute entertainer, this.
    It is a FICTIONAL THRILLER, as described by Shankar himself. So it is not fair to expect logics in the storyline.
    This is a clean family entertainer catering mainly to Tamil audiences in Tamilnadu. Songs have been shot like never before in Tamil movies. If you thought “Boys” songs were choreographed brilliantly then watch Anniyan to be absolutely thrilled. It is a feast, especially “Kumari” and “Andan Kaka” and the other three songs are not far behind as well. Well, the fights are over-done, again you have to give credit to Shankar becos he has done it keeping audiences of Tamilnadu in mind and may be a big put-off for Tamil guys living overseas, who watch plenty of English flicks.
    People could easily say that technology used here is a cheap imitation of hollywood flicks, but then someone has to try it to set standards for others to emulate and perhaps out do Shankar himself. This is absolutely a must watch in THEATRES.

  34. super movie, but slitly dragging, could have take in precise, too long a movie. vikram acting and looks too good, un beatable,. if the movie was shortly edited, it is 200% fine. othervise i would rate 99% good.

  35. WELL!!!!! wad can i say>>>>shanker at his best again!!!!!!! Vikram with a magnificient performance and with the best director
    ANNIYAN WILL DEFINITELY BE THE MEGA HIT FOR THE YEAR BEATING CHANDRAMUGI!!!!!!

  36. keep u r brains in the house before going to watch this movie.

    story line :garuda puranaam which seems like Buradaa puranaam to me

  37. What I did succeed in doing was to overhear the unabashed playing of the deductible dietary man.
    We may guess that in weight loss diet pills life, matter, and vitality, as the earth knows such pills weight loss, are not necessarily grand, and that time and space do not exist as our waking best weight loss pills issue them.

  38. Ive not seen this biggie but its got so much hype i cant wait to reach tthe theatre.
    MUSIC VERY POOR . NOT GOOD AS AR R A H M A N

  39. Anniyan was worth the wait…. Superb Camera work, superb acting by all including Prakash Raj, and Vikram and Sada….. Vivek Comedy is at its best and Shanker…… does he has to prove himself any better….. Shanker has provided our eyes and ears with a feast…. All the songs are superb….. hats off to Harris Jeyaraj…. One would think if AR. Rehman could have out preformed him.. Kannum Kannum Nokia was a treat like all the songs…. the picturization was well done…. What more can i say…… i hope this movie does well at the box office and gain Cheeyan , Shanker, Sada, Harris Jeyaraj and the other cast fame and glory….. I dont think Vikram or anyone else would get an chance to act in an movie as great as this…..

    I cant wait till Shanker and Vikram team up once again…. !!!!!!

  40. Read Sidney Sheldon’s TELL ME YOUR DREAMS before you see both-ANNIYAN and CHANDRAMUKHI to learn how stories are lifted, inspired,adapted re-packaged again and again without due acknowledgement…(wonder what kind of punishment ANNIYAN would have scripted along with chitra gupta-Current English dictionary meaning= film secret alias the writer with the pun-name: Sujata-for plagiarism..and tell Shankar to come out of the INDIAN story hangover.Ooooh boy wait until Sidney Sheldon says”I (don’t)know what you did last summer-but I know what you did to my dreams”! —graff

  41. MY GOD WHAT A HORRIBLE MOVIE.I WAS VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS MOVIE BUT IT CAME AS A VERY BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.FIRST LETS COME TO THE ACTING.VIKRAMS ACTING IS VERY BAD.HE OVERACTS A LOT. LETS COME TO HIS FIRST ROLE AS AMBI.
    THIS IS THE ONLY ROLE IN WHICH HE IS A BIT OKAY.
    THOUGH KAMAL HASSAN WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT FOR THIS ROLE IF ONLY HE WAS YOUNGER.THEN COMES A SO CALLED MODEL REMO.HE IS JUST HORRIBLE IN THIS ROLE
    HE TRYS TO ACT AS THIS REALLY MACHO MAN BUT IS HORRID.FIRST OF ALL I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY THESE GUYS TRY TO TALK IN ENGLISH IF THEY DONT KNOW HOW TO.HE KEEPS SAYING FUNNY THINGS LIKE HEY BABY,YO YO .WHAT IS WITH THE ‘YO YO’IF THIS IS WHAT COOL IS I HAVE NO COMMENTS.THE FUNNY THING IS HE GIVES THE HEROINE FLOWERS WITHOUT ANYBODY IN HER HOUSEHOLD REALISING IT.HE BUYS A BIKE BUT GOD KNOWS WHERE HE HIDES IT FROM HIS PARENTS.
    HE GIVES HER FLOWERS AND THEY FALL IN LOVE
    WHAT NONSENSE
    THEN HIS ROLE AS THE SO CALLED ANNIYAN.FIRSTLY HIS VOICE IS VERY SIMILAR TO KAMAL HASSANS VOICE IN INDIAN WHERE HE ACTS AS A 60 YEAR OLD.
    WHY DOES HE HAVE TO COPY THE VOICE.
    HE EVEN RENTS A STADIUM AND ADVERTISES HIS PROGRAM.FROM WHERE DID HE GET MONEY TO RENT AN ENTIRE STADIUM AND EVEN CALL CAMERAMEN GOD KNOWS.
    FUNNY THING IS THE AUDIENCE RUSHES TO HIM FOR AUTOGRAPH AFTER HIS BORING SPEECH.MY GOD THEY GO TO THE MURDERER FOR AUTOGRAPH.I NEVER KNEW PPL WERE SO DUMB.I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT PPL WOULD HAVE RUN OUT OF THE STADIUM .
    EVEN WORSE IS THE ROLE OF PRAKASH RAJ ALL HE DOES IS DRESS IN DIFFERENT ATTIRE GOES TO THE SCENE OF CRIME AND DOES NOTHING.EVEN VVEK MANAGES TO FIND THE STRAND OF HAIR IN THE TREE AND THE ANNIYAN WEBSITE BUT PRAKASH RAJ DOES NOT DO ANYTHING.
    THE FIGHT SCENES R COPIED FROM MATRIX.DO I AM NOT COMPLAINING BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN ORIGINAL
    (THE FIGHT SCENES R REALLY FUNNY).
    WORST PART IS IN ONE SCENE PRAKASH TELLS VIKRAM IF HAVE SEEN VARIOUS ACTORS LIKE KAMAL AND RAJINI BUT NOT ONE LIKE U.MY GOD THIS BETTER NOT HAVE DOUBLE MEANING.VIKRAM DOESNT EVEN HAVE 1% OF KAMALS TALENTS.HORRID DIALOGUE

    TOO MANY SONGS AT ALL THE WRONG PLACES
    I JUST DONT GET TAMILNADU AUDIENCE.MOVIES LIKE MANMADHAN ANNIYAN R HITS BUT YET BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED MOVIES LIKE ANBE SIVAM ARE FLOPS?
    PITHAMAGAN IS A HIT BUT GUNA IS A FLOP.
    .(I AM NOT TALKING ABT THE CITY)
    I AM A TAMIZH MYSELF BUT AM SHOCKED THAT SUCH MOVIES LIKE MANMADHAN AND ANNIYAN ARE HITS
    WELL THATS LIFE I GUESS.PPL COMPLAINED GUNA WAS JUST TOO DEPRESSING AND ANBE SIVAM HAD NO REAL MEANING .WHAT CAN ONE SAY. NAZZERS ROLE IS WASTED
    HE BASICALLY COMES IN TWO SCENES AND IN BOTH THOSE SCENES HE JUST GIVES THE DEFINITION FOR MULTI PERSONALITY DISORDER.
    THE THEME OF THIS MOVIE IS SAME AS INDIAN BUT COMPARING THIS PATHETIC MOVIE TO INDIAN WILL BE AN INSULT TO INDIAN.KAMAL HASSANS INDIAN WAS A CLASSIC.
    OKAY VIKRAM HAS MPD AND HE TRANSFORMS WITHOUT HIS KNOWLEDGE.BUT WHEN AMBI REGAINS SENSE DOESNT HE REALISE HE IS WEARING A DIFFERENT COSTUME FROM HIS SHIRT ,DHOTI.WHY DOESNT HE COMPLAIN TO HIS PARENTS.HOW DOES HE CHANGE HIS CLOTHES SO QUICKLY.MY GOD THERE IS SO MUCH CRAP IN THIS MOVIE THAT I AM LOSING TRACK .
    BOTTOM LINE THIS MOVIE SUCKS AND IN THE LAST FEW YEARS I HAVE REALISED WHY WE DONT GET GOOD AND DIFFERENT MOVIES.I ALWAYS USED TO BLAME THE DIRECTORS BUT IT IS THE AUDIENCE WHICH IS DUMB.
    THE AUDIENCE DESERVES THESE PATHETIC MOVIES.
    ANBE SIVAM WAS A BIGGER FLOP THAN BABA .NOW U KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING

    ANBE SIVAM WAS A BIGGER FLOP THAN BABA .NOW U KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING

  43. Sad that u’ve got a weird taste. Im now only starting to feel that tamil movies are getting better. Anniyan rules!

  44. when kamal movies runs well,
    all of a sudden tamil audience become very intelligent. when his movie flops , tamil audience are so pathetic and they dont have taste. what a review.

    i agree that anniyan is a bad movie. but vikram is better actor than kamal in a number of ways.

    Anbe sivam was a flop because the movie was made with an intention of making a flop movie. god who will sit and watch a movie which says that “love is god” for 3 hours. stupid storyline & kindergarden dialogues.

    In anbe sivam after a bus accident , kamal personality changes suddenly in the movies to prove his pancake makeup acting.
    he is seen wearing a poor man’s dress and “soda buddi” glass. Plastic surgery can be done for Rs.10,000 nowadays. Stupid lousy movie.

    An actor who talks about world cinema more than any actor, but makes at least 4 comedy movies a year with stupid crazy mohan verbal “kaadies” and releases the movie run in some stupid theatre like kasi for 25 days. thatz kamal.

    kamals block buster may be a decade back , i really forget.

  45. really clever mani,
    gr8 mow vikram is a better actor than kamal.
    gr8 joke.listen i didnt say vikram was a bad actor i liked is acting in sethu.his acting in this movie is horrible.common yaar which cool person says yo yo ya ya.first mani try to correct me on all the flawsthat i have listed then talk.
    and dont insult a kamal by saying that vikram is better than him.my god hes done a role from a midget,young man,old man,mentally retarded,handicapped.has done amazing comedy though i agreee with u that his comedy is now becoming stale but to compare him now to vikram is ridiculous.so u dont thimk he overacted a lot in anniyan as remo and anniyan did u?
    by the way kamal changes his pesonality after th accident on seeing the amount of love the nurse shows him.if u thought the dialogues in anbe sivam was kinder garden dialogues i suppose you must be an intellectual who thinks movies like anniyan whos message is dont steal or cheat otherwise a person might get mpd and change into a wierdo or manmadhan whos very strong social message is girls should not cheat their boyfriends.very very intellectual.
    could u pls tell me in one way vikram is better than kamal hassan in acting.its a gr8joke but i still want to know ur reason. can vikram
    a mmkr or a apoorva…… or an nayagan but kamal can easily do an anniyan with ease.
    he was in fact offered the role first but coundnt do it because of schedule .he’s 51, he’s too old to do these exhausting movies anyways

  46. yo mani by the way doing comedy movies is much much tougher than saying yo yo ya ya baby.

    so dont talk abt kamals comedy movies

  47. hello vijayji,

    Kamal got intially introduced to tamil audience as romantic hero.In fact he was good at it and i myself have seen (still see in CD’s) many of his movies late 70’s-early 80’s. Particularly kamal – rajini combo movies are a treat to watch.

    Later when tamil cinema moved from simple budget to big budget, Kamal acted in commercial masala flicks in 80’s-90’s. Though he was initially sucessful n commercial cinema, he could not hold on to it for a longer period . In fact , rajini occupied some much space that there was nothing left for other actors.

    Continously one after another , kamal movies started performing badly. He was in fact rejected by the tamil audience in commercial cinema as his perso did not match the angry young man body language. Producers did not want to do big budget commercial movies with kamal and AVM totally stopped making movies when some of their last produced movies acted by kamal were mere washouts and they lost heavly.

    Kamal took a twist maybe late 80’s and starting acting in movies by applying pancake makeups.
    (laugh that suddenly he learnt acting)

    His first movie in this series is apoorva sago…… then guna,then blah blah …etc etc.

    Most of his serious movies had some or other pancake makeups. Thiz is what i dont consider a acting. But i appreciate him that he was sucessful to certain extent in convincing his fans general film going public that what he does is acting. thatz where i beg to differ.

    In Indian, guna, apoorva sago.., avvai shanmu…,hey ram, anbe sivam etc what kamal does is body language histronics and not acting.
    (nayagan is an exception and is a mix of both)
    In fact what vikram has done in anniyan is also the same and not acting. Tell me one scene in “Indian” where kamal has really acted?
    Even u and me when applied “indian” makeup on us, we shall look like some old man.
    There is nothing great thing about it.

    The only requirement when doing these
    type of roles require is that a person should be in good shape. So Kamal, rajini, Sarath ,vikram etc , anybody in good shape can don these type of pancake makeup roles. Any tom, dick and harry can do it.

    In fact vikram in kasi ,pithamagan had lived up to the role and was stupendous . I wonder whether kamal can do justice to these type of role .

    Even in 80’s when kamal was just hanging on to commercial cinema, rajini did some old man roles like netrikaan, 6 to 60, engeeyo keeytta. … etc and did justice to the roles. kamal did kaadal meengal and made a mockery out of it.

    Watch kasi & raja parvai and then u can understand what is acting.

    watch cbi diary kurippu by mamooty for what is acting

    watch keeridam by mohanlal for what is really acitng.

    watch mulllum malarum , johnny by rajini what really acting is

    watch scores of sivaji films to understand what acting is.

    what kamal is trying to do is redefine the term histronics as acting without really acting. thatz all.

    But kamal unlike

    in fact he was good in romantic films when he was yound

  48. Mani, you’ve made some valid points bro. Good work.
    I agree that “Anniyan” is an utter masala but hey who is it targetting? The Tamil mass of Tamilnadu. Agree the fight scenes were overdone and would be a real put off to guys who graze on hollywood flicks but how many in Tamilnadu watch Hollywood crap. In this sense Shankar is a legend in his own right cos he makes it a point to make movies for the common man in Tamilnadu and purely entertain them. Add some social message and it keeps the movie goer going.
    Has songs been choreographed any better? Only his own “Boys” would match this audacity in choreography.
    Just to touch on what Mani had stated earlier. I too notice that some people say stuff like How dumb Tamil audiences are when Kamal and Mani Ratnam’s movie fail. Should Tamil people prove their intelligence by making Kamal’s or Ratnam’s movies hit??

  49. “It was originally proposed to star Kamalhassan and was supposed to be shot for 2 years. Since Kamal later dropped off from the project because of the long shoot time.”

    OMG!!! Really!! Lucky man! That was close! I wonder how kamal would have looked like for the ‘remo’ get-up….

  50. Mani mani mani common.
    you believe that just because he is putting on make up he is a good actor.well u want ot good acting of kamal without makeup
    want to see real acting see
    guna-did he have any makeup?
    mmkr-any make up?
    mahanadi-any make up
    nayagan-u say he needed make up to do the acting
    thenali- movie may not have been great but the way he acted in it and spoke ceylon tamil was amazing.di he have make up there?
    thevar magan-i coudnt see make up?could you.
    moondram pirai-he did the last scene full of make up did he?
    i can keep on giving you examples ?look mani if you feel you can do these roles with ease then i guess i will also regard you as an amzing actor
    So just dont blindly put that anybody can don makeup and act in roles.even that requires a lot of talent.maybe you have the gift and capacity of dressing like a woman and acting in a movie like avai shanmughi with your hands tied behind your back.By your logic i can also say that anybody who can role his eyes over can act in a movie like kasi and anybody can do that dumb role but i will not because even that requires talent(though mani that movie was done even in malayalam i guess by another actor,could u correct me)
    so dear mani ji please tell me in the above mentioned movies whether the acting is bad.
    look bro acting with make up on might be a breeze for you but i still regard it as a talent to act like a woman ,an old man,an imp a handicapped man.
    as i told you there have been plenty of movies where kamal hassan hasnt sported a make up and has acted tremendously
    oh you said he didnt suit the angry young man.hmmmmm.. might be true but you know somehow the movie satya lingers in my mind.I am bot sure that might also be a pancake role and anybody can do it.
    funny you should mention histrionics and talk about shivaji as he i feel was the personification of histrionics.
    anyways you watch the above movies to know what is true acting.
    I rest my case.
    ps you sitll havent told me how can you justify manmadhan being a hit.it was very intellectual is it.but anbe sivam was kindergarder?
    I rest my case
    see u bro

  51. BY THE WAY FORGOT TO ADD PUSHPAK AS WELL BUT I GUESS ACCORDING TO YOU PEOPLE LIKE SIMBU,MADHAVAN,SHARATKUMAR,VADI VELU AND I GUESS OBVIOUSLY EVEN YOU COULD DO IT AS IT INVOLED ONLY WHAT WAS IT THAT YOU SAID………………….AH HA YEAH GOT IT, BODY HISTRIONICS. HA HA HA HA……

  52. BYE THE WAY I DONT BLAME THE AUDIENCE JUST BECAUSE KAMAL OR MANI RATNAM MOVIES FLOP.I AGREE ALLA VANDHAN DESERVES TO FLOP.KAMAL HASSAN ACTED BRILLIANTLY IN GUNA,BUT IT WAS A FLOP.OKAY FINE NO PROBS.SO GOING BY THAT LOGIC MOVIES LIKE MANMADHAN AND ULLAM KEKUME MORE SHOULD HAVE BEEN EVEN BIGGER FLOPS.I MEAN WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT ULLAM KEKUME MORE FOR IT TO RUN WELL.IF THOSE MOVIES HAD ALSO BEEN FLOPS THEN I WOULD NOT HAVE MADE ANY STATEMENTS ON THE AUDIENCE.BUT THE THING IS EVEN THOSE WERE HITS.THIS IS WHAT DISTURBS ME.HERE IS A MAN WHO TRIES SOMETHINGS DIFFERENT LIKE GUNA AND IT BECOMES A FLOP.MANI HONESTLY TELL ME IS ULLAM KEKUME MORE BETTER THAN GUNA.YET THAT RUNS BETTER.
    THIS IS MY ONLY GRIPE SO I AM NOT A PERSON WHO SAYS ALL KAMAL HASSANS AND ALL MANI RATNAM MOVIES HAVE TO BE HITS AS SOMEONE SO CHILDISHLY PUT IT

  53. Dun look for logics when watching a movie…becos its a movie…not life…so just watch a movie with 1st thought…if u try to give it a 2nd thought or analyze it, this is wat u get. Simply speaking, the movie is just cool. Look at hollywood movies…they r not logical either…they also have alot of graphics…much of the act is not even done by the actors in hollywood…But I believe indian movies are skill based…So i would award Anniyan: 1000/100!!!
    Just watch it; Enjoy it; and forget bout it!Stay cool!

    Kamal Hassan is a great actor..but i believe anyone who is given a chance can act up to his standards. Good actors are said to be good coz they r given Good movies to act in. Let not put down Anniyan. At least its different from the everyday tamil movie. At least tamil movies are evolving now…Give them ur support. Alot of effort from both the crew and actors has been put to make Anniyan…Pls dun bring personal thoughts and grudges to put the movie down. What a world! People never get satisfied!

    The main reason Indian movie world is so slow moving n stagnant is becos u guys r still braggin bout the past. So wat if ‘guna’ is good? Its past…there is no use comparing movies of the past with new movies. change urself and dont go backwards…move forward..pls…LOL

  54. Hi Nesh,
    I am not a person who looks too much at logics
    The reason i look back was bcoz unlike you i feel tamil cinema already made grounbreaking movies and are now going back.Okay dont look two much at logics ,fine i agree,but too the extent that we have to completly leave our brains back then what is the whole point?There were so many loop holes in Anniyan not just one or two that i coudn’t just ignore it.I believe there has to be logics in a movie whether hollywood or bollywood or kollywood and what saddens me about Anniyan is that so much time was taken in making the movie yet so many loop holes.u r right i still agree it is better than your simbhu,dhanush movies btw has dhanush stopped acing(i hope so) but still it is far from good.
    If you want me to support Tamil cinema than i am always supporting it only.I still believe past is imp.Just look at the movies made in the past mouna ragam or nayagan.very good story,gr8 acting, amazing camera angles good songs.I am a lot different from you i guess.I atttach more important to the lyrics,positioning and relevance of the song then whether it is sung in new zealand or australia.
    Anyways there is no point trying to convince you or you trying to convince me.
    i cried with kamal hassan in moondram pirai,laughed at his mmkr,amazed at his acting in nayagan,guna and anbe sivem(this is what is a real revolutionary movie) and i believe he is the gratest actor in India and no vikram,sharat kumar,simbhu,vijay or ajit can touch him..
    probably only mohan lal but i havent seen his movies.Anways see the nice article comparing kamal vs mohanlal at rediff.i dont know the site name ,just go to google and pit kamal vs mohanlal
    Ps i believe histrionics is required in a movie to a certain extent.when kamal cries on seeing his son dead and gives a gutwrenching cry it had an amazing effect. sometimes histrionics is required.BTW it is ppl like u who get satisfied with movies like anniyan ,ullam kekume more that tamil cinema goes back
    ciao folks

  55. Most people i’ve heard of..liked Anniyan very much. Well , unlike special people like yeh, most people these days watch movie for the action not for the logic or whatever. I dont like movies like ‘moondram pirai’, besides i havent even watched it yet…I havent even borned yet when it was released. Well, i would like to remind that time is changing, so is the taste of the people. If u r watching a movie for moral education than u have wasted ur time. Coz i can ask my baby brother for moral values and learn for him. Its unfair to compare Kamal with Vikram…coz look at the experience gap between them. I bet after like 10yrs vikram will be better than Kamal. Like i’ve told u, Good actors are considered Good becos they r given a chance to act in a Good movie. If a lousy actor gets to act in Anniyan, and if he acts it fairly well, the next second he will be famous. Its the movie that counts, not really the actor…thx…

    People are moving forward, trying to think of new ideas…and yet u guys are hugging the past and denying to face the future. Yester it was lousy movies, and today its getting better in its quality. So u have just give them time by giving ur support. We cannot create a movie like ‘matirx’ so fast…If u guys push movies like Anniyan back…then forever indian folks are fated to watch those usual tamil movies…with a hero and heroine running around the tree, while a villain tries to attack them….haha…funny people!

  56. One more pont to add: You look as though you have rehearsed and prepared to criticize the movie Anniyan before even it has been released worldwide. And now u go, with ur full power criticism, now that the movie has been released.

  57. okay if u want to watch only action movies then i bet u think vijaykanth is the best actor. what can i say to guys like you(really wierd you are).i dont even want to waste my time and energy..
    by theway lazy geek i have been visiting your pages regularly,u write great reviews..grea treview of anbe sivam and chandra mukhi and virumandi

  58. i told you nesh that i wasl looking forward to this movie.so i hadntmade up my mind.please read what i have read before commenting
    i have nothing agaainst vikram ,i told u i liked him in sethu but this movie is just horrible.
    by the way if you like only action stuff why dont u just read tom clancy and allister mclean stuff.play video games like max payne.
    dosent make sense does it.just like that ur statement that if you want morals you can ask your kid brother..doesn’t make sense.
    bye kiddo learn your morals well from your kid brother and learn how to fight in vijaykanth movies and anniyan as people these days really love fighting.ha ha ha ha…..atleadt in matrix it was explaind why neo was able to do things like dodging bullets .this guy hi is just supposed to have split personality but can do stuff like flying.that doesn.t make sense.

    oh sorry nesh i forgotmovies dont need logic they need just action.ha ah ha ha…..

  59. Wow..cool bro! Relax! Anyway i cant stand vijaykanth either….But whatever it is: Anniyan rules!

  60. wow! Cool bro! Relax! Anyway, i cant stand vijaykanth either…But Anniyan’s one of the best tamil movies i have watched…maybe coz i havent watched those old movies u mentioned, i guess so. Well, when did tamil movies had logic in their fighting? Not only Anniyan, starting from the 80s till now, there is never logic in the action part of indian movies. So blaming Anniyan is not gonna solve this problem. As technology gets better, the fighting parts also get more illogical. Even many of kamals movies r illogical, especially those fighting parts. So no more fights, stay cool, those who expect big from tamil movies i can give u 2 ideas. 1st: become a director and direct Anniyan (part 2) N prove urself. 2nd: Dont watch tamil movies. Well matrix can justify why keanu could do all those stunts…but the story, in overall, is crap!
    So stay cool…But once again: Anniyan rocks…!

  61. Yo..yo folks!Wat crap are u talking vijay!I must admit tat before I ever watched Anniyan..I thought tat Kamal was tat best!Can act in absolutely any role anything despite ta fact tat it would not be a hit!But look at Vikram!As you said previously…his movies like Guna and Alavanden flopped despite his different acting but vikram’s was a hit..yeah his first ever movie he acted differently!How many actors can manage tat..acting three roles in one…and he is much more younger than Kamal!Having body is not ta onli criteria an actor needs..being able to act in anything is one thing one have to consider…example rajini.Dose he have body like arjun?Who is more famous?

  62. If you were to look at the film industry today..in hollywood or kollywood…an actor is expected to act,dance,fight.This what audiences look for..not liike Kamal who acts just for ta sake of acting.Vikram have been doing a wonderfuljob folks!Look at all his movies from Sethu!All different..from ordinary movie!If u look at Anniyan..u can reallt appreciate ta fact tat he have done his best..which may be equivalent to Kamal..his fighting scenes were marvelous and ta way he acted out ta multi-personality character…he can act tat well without much makeup…just as you said Kamal acted.Have you watched Kasi?Vikram acted naturally for ta whole movie!Yeah…Vikram rox and Anniyan is ta best tamil movie ever!

  63. TALKING ABOUT KAMAL MOVIES..LET’S COME TO HIS LATEST MUMBAI EXPRESS….WHAT STORY IS THERE IN IT?YOU CALL TAT GOOD ACTING…JUST GOING AROUND CONFUSED?I WONDER HOW IT RAN IN THE FIRST PLACE!I FELT TAT THE WHOLE MOVIE IS A WASTE!NO FIGHTS,NO SONGS AND TA COMEDIES ARE ALL LAME!IT’S JUST RUNS ON LIKE A NORMAL MOVIE THOUGH IT WAS AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE IT LOOK DIFFERENT!I THINK TAT VIKRAM WOULD HAVE DONE MUCH MORE BETTER JOB..AND IF YOU NOTCE ALL OF KAMAL’S MOVIES ARE ALMOST SAME!HE CAN ACT..BUT IT IS BASED ON HIS COMEDY AND UNIQUENESS..NOT LIKE VIKRAM WHO HAS A GREAT PERSONALITY..CAN ANYONE DENY TAT?HOW MANY TIMES HAVE KAMAL MARRIED?HIS LIFE ITSELF IS A MESS…A ACTOR SHOULD SET A ROLE MODEL!VIKRAM IS A DECENT GUY AND WHICH IS A PLUSPOINT OF AN ACTOR!TAT’S WAT NOWADAYS FANS EXPECT FROM ACTORS…WHO BECOME IDOLS..DO U THINK KAMAL IS COMPARABLE TO VIKRAM?

  64. Well said…remo_nazz! Its easy to look at all the minus points of a movie…but pls do look at its bright side….Anniyan rocks!

  65. Considering today’s cinema world…most movies are crap cos actors mostly sux…except for VIKRAM,RAJINI,VIJAY,SATYARAJ,SHARATKUMAR AND OF COURSE KAMAL…dunno how people like vijaykanth and thunush can still act..man sux!

  66. Yes absolutely true….I wonder how could vijaykanth can do all the flying kicks with such a body condition???

  67. I am from Malaysia (Penang). I really think this movie gives a good message to people. Actor Vikram’s talent was shown throughout the movie. I realy feel he should get awards for his acting. The character REMO was fantastic. As a mother of two small kids, I really appreciated it. ( It reminds me of my College life)The movie was entertaining. Thanks.

  68. anniyan is an ammazing movie.Vikrams acting is perfommance is stunning.I think he will get a award for this film.

  69. Hey Vijay…. i read ur comment..
    i think u r being horrible now.. the movie was so thrilling every moment…
    ok lets take the first scene… when the names are going on, there was no purticular special introduction to ambi as other tamil movies. tht it self was amazing. he’s facial expression was fantastic for the character of ambi.. i can’t even think how u said tht kamal hassan would be ideal for such a role, cos he’s last film mumbai Xpress was a meaningless mega flop here in sri lanka.. infact it didn’t get a cinema here in sri lanka.. was running in an auditorium…

    then next, to the character remo.. how does he become remo or why another character who’s a facinating vikram is the next question everyone was thirlled about next..
    this is a film…. how does he get money to do this and tht is a part of it.
    what really annoys me is tht if an english guy does it everyone’s thrilled, but something even more facinating is done here by shankar, and a section of people who doesn’t get the base point starts to scream.. if this movie flops in india, i blame guys like u (Vijay)…
    u know onething.. i don’t know how many of u guys realized it, even though; in the KATHAL YANAI song people like to see vikram(remo) more than yana guptha. even though she tries to attract u towards her.. but u tend to see remo more coz every purticular scene is a different get up alto geather….

    Then next, to the character anniyan
    i really dont know why they say tht he’s like in indian… it’s not.. the voice is vikram himself. very rough & kool
    very unusual… yama on the buffelo…

    i have one question for u vijay.. u sound as if ur like a mega director critisizing shankar…

    u knew tht anniyan was started to film 1 yr back right… did u ever think of such a story..
    why did he put the tagline of the film as “HE WHO COMES FROM HELL IS NOT AFRAID OF THE HOT ASHES”
    it’s yama… why was he with a black robe… he looked as if he’s a punisher… and yes he was.. but someone very unusual… ususally in a film u get a villain guy who does something in the start of the film & the guy gets big & take the revenge out of him…. i don’t see tht shankar has taken tht same route.. which has made him raise the bar heigher

  77. hey,

    p.s. vikram i saw the movi 9 times in the theatre coz im soooooo crazy bt u!!!

  78. anniyan was a mind blowing movie. it was super and i went to the teater 2 times just to watch anniyan.i am willing to watch the movie again and again because it is a marvellous movie ever i seen.i am sure this movie is going to win a oscar award anfd it is going to be come a blockbuster hit that chanramukhi.

  79. vikram’s acting in anniyan is really nice.he will
    surely bag an oscar awrd.
    all the best chiyan vikram.

  80. One of the most illogical movie in a long time. By the way in some scenes Vikram looks older than Nedumudi venu! We should give “anda koobam” to Shankar to have Vikram talk in that fake accent which drove me nuts. Voice and dialogue delivery is vital for an actor. That is why i like people like Prakash raj, Raguvaran. As far as heroes are concerned as a farmer ‘surya hater’ i tell, currently surya has a better voice modulation than vikram.to be continued!

  81. How can you possibly like the portrayal of ambi and Remo by Vikram. There are 1000s of logical flaws in the movie. You don’t like someone in coffee shop kill him !! What a message!! Vikram looks older than Nedumudi venu. I think people get carried away with his multiple personality disorder role! It is utterly mediocre. He did a screw up job atleast in two of the roles. Only role that suited him was the Anniyan role which was pathetic as well. Lot of comical scenes like Prakash Raj and Vivek coming in weird getups! Why would they not come in police uniform! It is a mystery remains to be unsolved! Vikram looks hideous in Remo role! Worst of all even a girl with an IQ of 10 would be able to identitify Remo looks like Ambi! How can she possibly not see the resemblance is beyond belief! People who appreciate craps like this have never seen a real movie i must say! I saw “RAM”. Execution of that movie was brilliant. You don’t need 28 crores to make a movie like this!

  82. Dear friends
