Allu Sirish is making his Tamil comeback with Vijay Antony film!
By Aninditha | Galatta | 02:54 PM
Allu Sirish has managed to make a good name for him ever since he made his debut. The actor made his Tamil debut back in 2013 and ever since fans have been wondering when would he make a comeback in the Tamil arena. Although he was supposed to appear in KV Anand’s Kaappaan, he opted out of it due to date issues. Now, it is being reported that the actor is all set to make his Tamil comeback with a Vijay Antony starrer film!
Reports state that he’s been roped in to play one of the leads in Vijay Milton’s next, which also has Vijay Antony as the protagonist. Talking to a leading daily, the actor said, “I was looking forward to work in Kollywood again. I have seen Milton’s Goli Soda. And after a break, I am happy to be part of Vijay Antony-Vijay Milton’s film. I flew down to Chennai for a narration and loved the script. This role is a challenging one, something that I haven’t done even in Telugu so far. My character comes from a small town, a humble background, who has to work hard to earn for his daily living. If I reveal anything more, I will be in trouble (laughs). But yes, it will definitely push me out of my comfort zone. I am so happy to be coming back to Tamil cinema with a good film.”
The report also states that the shooting for this is likely to begin from November. It sure will be interesting to see the actor try out his luck with the Tamil audience with this comeback. Let’s see how well he performs…
Kolaigaran Movie Review | Vijay Antony | Action King Arjun
By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 12:31 PM
After his debut vehicle Leelai in 2012, director Andrew Louis Vasanth is back with Kolaigaran now. From the promo materials and the title, it is a child’s play to realize what we will be getting in for. Therefore, how this story is narrated is what one would like to know when he or she comes into the theatre. In that sense, we can easily say Andrew has done a good job in his second directorial. This whodunit picks up well and travels at a steady pace. Andrew clearly spreads his cards in the initial portions, keeping the important ones close to his chest.
The first half perfectly moves with the director throwing his red herrings at right intervals. He moves the narrative interestingly with a small twist before the interval block making the audience wait for the second half to begin soon. The second half also travels in the path that has been set in the earlier part. The criminal investigation moves on giving the audience the guessing came. To Andrew’s credit, there are a few unpredictable twists which make the viewers satisfied at the end of the film.
There are no major loopholes in the story, thanks to the core premise of the film, adapted from the Japanese novel, The Devotion of Suspect X. In such stories, the motives fall only under few categories and in Kolaigaran too, it is not some out of the world objective. Andrew has not attempted to make the narrative very different and in the process lose the attention of his audience.
Despite having a very good premise on hand, the screenplay has been not-so-engaging. It is not completely gripping enough to hold the audience to their seats. The treatment is bland and ineffective. The two romantic songs in the film are wrongly placed and it totally acts as a speed breaker. The dialogues that come towards the end of the film look force fitted and over dramatic. Some viewers might feel the interaction between the hero and heroine, a little weird with flat emotional quotient, but the explanation for it comes at the end.
Vijay Antony with his, 'I don't want anyone to know what I am thinking' expression comes very much handy to his character of Prabhakaran. Perhaps the artist cleverly chooses such roles only! Arjun as the investigative officer brings to the table his rich experience in acting and does complete justice. The intelligence on his look and the ‘devil may care’ countenance help the film big time. Equal screen space is given to both Vijay Antony and Arjun and they have used it rightly.
Heroine Ashima Narwal and her mother played by Seetha are perfectly cast with constant fear on their face plastered. Nasser does an equally interesting role. Music of Simon King (Bharat's 555 and Sibraj’s Sathya fame) aids the transference of the film's mood to the audiences. Mukesh’s cinematography is decent with no complaints.
VERDICT - A bland thriller that works at parts!
RATING - 2.5/5

After director Seenu Ramasamy came to a conclusion and removed the tweet supporting financier Anbu Chezhiyan, now Vijay Antony and director Bala seems to be supporting the man who forced Ashok Kumar to commit suicide.
