My Thoughts
Regression therapy… Past lives… Reincarnation… Vengeance… and most importantly love forms the basis for KV Anand’s movie Anegan. This presents Dhanush in four different roles.

The screenplay flows with ease and has several unexpected twists. Om Prakash’s cinematography brings different eras into life. Harris Jayaraj’s background blends with the scenes. Except Donga Maai Oodhaari song which is fresh, hummable and danceable, all other songs gives the I-have-heard-this-before feel. Kanal Kannan’s stunts is brilliantly choreographed where reflex action is the key; with almost no thinking time.

Needless to say, Dhanush gives his 100% and beyond. His innocence as Munaruna, alertness as Ilamaaran, impulsiveness as Kaali and happy-go-lucky-guy as Ashwin is marked well. He differentiates each character not only with his wig/hairstyle but with acting skills and mannerisms too.
And, Dhanush I agree – Nee munnapola ippo illa. Romba maaritte!

Amyra of Hindi movie Issaq fame is promising. She shares almost equal screen space as Dhanush and have done a wonderful performance for a new comer. Her lip sync is good and she looks cute. I loved her styling; very wearable! She is here to stay.

Karthik plays an unpredictable role. He has done a convincing job and he also looks good. Ashish Vidyarthi in his famous cop avatar, Aiswarya Devan (looked so like Tamanna) and Jagan have played their parts well too.

In spite of a different story-line and a perfect cast, the first half was dragging. Other than that brief hiccup, the movie is a perfect entertainment not only for you but for your entire family.

A V-Day feast.

    1. Many Tamil movies dont release outside Tamil Nadu anymore...
      So I watch them only when they are telecast in TV.
      I heard that Meghaman is good. Not sure about Pei though.

      Thanks :)
