Azhagiya Theeye – A Warm Interlude

Azhaghiya Theeye will not move you, will not make you feel nausea with blood baths, will not make you cry in buckets. It is one of those movies where you might find your spirits lifted because of the very light-hearted subject it represents. Prakash Raj and Radha Mohan need to be congratulated for they managed to produce/direct a good movie in a shoe-string budget.

At the same time, it is not a very different movie as it is advertised. Such movies have always sprung out of the dark just like Sollamaley or Kannethire Thondrinaal or Agathiyan‘s Kaadhal Kavithai and so so. When you make a movie with at such low costs as what Prakash Raj says you rely on heavily on the story and the actors. Both have done their part well. Be it Prasanna who is caught in an unexpected situation or that Kumaravel as Chitappa, have done a great job in the acting department. Navya Nair would still need some time to apply acting gears.

What I loved about the movie is the references in dialogues to other movies. From Mannathi Mannan to Boys, the characters continously refer to one or other, the reference to Thiruvilayadal being the best. Radha Mohan should have been a movie buff to have scuh amazing references. Great job dude; from one movie buff to another.

Prakash Raj seems to have acted this role just after Gilli. Especially when he calls Hi! Chandran, it reminds me of Gilli Muthupandi calling Trisha, Hi! Chellam.

Amidst the action masalas and the aruvaa times this is certainly a movie that cools you down, a warm interlude.

  1. Lazy Geek,

    You didn’t mention about Annachi Character. That too the Annachi and Chittapa combination did well.

    Do you know that Actor Nazeer is the one who brought most of this Koottu Patrai people like Pasupathy, Chittapa, Balasingh in screen.

    I don’t know whether you have seen “Avatharam” ,”Mayan”.
