Mariyadhai – Marandhuru adhai

15 Jun

On Sunday, our neighbor L wanted us to enjoy the movie Mariyadhai.” Yam pettra inbam, peruga ivvaiyagam” policy. I have no clue when it was released or anything about it for that matter. Now, about the movie,where shall I start….the purple shaded lips,the red& pink scarf on a blue shirt or the naughty gerl Meera Jasmine. The hero is none other than our akson king visayakanthan and that too , in a double role to boot. How to distinguish the appa and payyan?Daddy wears a wig parted in the side and son wears a wig parted in the middle. It can’t get any better,yes ? Amma is Ambika, a bad cook, who is the butt of all sokes in the movie and provides a breather every now and then. How can thalaivar go without two heroines, so we have Meena , in a negative role and Meera Jasmine ,in a thuru-thuru goody role ( which she is not good at, btw), who vows to make the hero like her after vittifying sawal to Meena for the same. Son loves Meena but decides Meera is good enough.
About the songs….I had anandha kaneer just watching our akson king in different colored shirts & scarfs, with matching lipstick and Meera Jasmine in a Mittai Pink Cindrella dress. The son becomes a recluse after dancing for a couple of songs with Meena, who cheats him for a 100 acre land…Seriously !! I mean, if you have 100 acre land in one hand and the Captain in another, who would you choose? I don’t blame Meena. Anyway, enters Meera, makes everyone happy including the son. The son gets a national award after creating greenhouse gardens in a couple of scenes later…Disappointing to see just only one akson scene …Here comes the moral of the movie…When the son is asked about his success in an interview, he replies, ” Ella creditum..goes to appa . Naan pona pokula enna vittu, 100 acre land..a tholachalum thatti koduthadunalathan I came up.” There is another friend, who looks after his son very well, sends him to America, aka , avana oor sutha vidama., and the son is shown to dump him in an old age home. Chi chi..all these America going sons , I say..

If you want to enjoy with your friends and watch a full-fledged comedy, this is for you . But , don’t go to the theatre, sust was it in DVD.

    Ayyo Chocha – just hilarious. I was laughing out loud. “after vittufying sawaal” – oh no. Now that sun TV is making its presence in our home, I must agree. Our programs aren’t meant to be called programs – they are so crappy!!

    *banging head on the nearest wall*

    indha karumatha DVD la vera paakanuma?

    Vikraman will be stoned to death some day for his tear jerkers and SA Rajkumar for his tointotadoin music.

    I beleive Gapton also swears that all Tamil Nadu peoples will have his picture on their pooja room.

    Where do I start Shoba? We also had the bhagyam of watching this movie, of course for free in Putham pudhu DVD copy.

    Vikraman padama na you have the same formula, the hero becoming a super star just in one song (suryavamsam, unnidathil ennai koduthen), 2 heroines out of which one is the good one and the other bad (example suryavamsam, unnai ninaithu) and then bgm for every freaking bit of movie. So agree with Praveen’s tottadaoin music. But idhula enna kodumana, the music for this movie is not by SA Rajkumar, but “nakku mukka” fame Vijay Antony. Can you believe it? Ennala adha thaan thangave mudiyala. If Mr. Vikraman wanted the same style of music like he has been using for the past 25 years, why did he use Vijay Antony? I really don’t understand. This clearly shows that the director plays a major role in music composition too. Eppadi irundha Vijay ippadi ayitaru nu I was pulambifying even this afternoon.

    Idhellam vida innum kodumaiyana vishayam, how he raved about the movie in the following interview. My husband asked me to watch the interview first before watching the movie. After watching the movie I really felt that Vikraman has lost his mind completely. Just I’ll give a sample of what he mentions, Indian cinemavileya oru mukkiyamana padam, andha levelukku he was blabbering something. (maybe cinema eppadi eduka koodadhungarathuku oru mukkiya udaranama irukkum nu namma eduthukanum pola irukku)

    Please do watch the video, it’s even more tamasu then the movie itself.

      I saw the interview. πŸ™‚ Am not surprised… Ella director solradhu dhane.. The Remix of Inbame was good. The rest of the songs were time pass thru which I fast forwarded … Most of the songs sound so similar, as though we were watching one of his previous movies…. Couldn’t agree with you more.

    Praveen, Madhuram,

    You know what , I didn’t even bother to check out who the director or the music director was, till u guys talked about it. Just watched it as time pass. I am kind of averse to Captain’s movies. Suresh is the one who watches it in our house. πŸ™‚
