The Boss… Motta Boss

##(First my apologize for that mistake I made in last post announcing its my 500th. It was my 461 post, a small inattention)

The boss, that special motta (shaved head) boss is the character player by super star in Shivaji as MGR was the one I enjoyed more in the film. Being an admirer of superstar, and a huge fan of shanker this film has become to be a must watch film for me in Theater.

Half-an hour before the films starts we were parked the car on our usual ramp in drive-in. So early was too for a pause that we may miss the ticket, but there was not big crowd like we think. Many families this time, already settled with mats, chars as comfort to enjoy the film, even very old people were seizing by shivaji, could find more white hair and a wheel chair granny. Clouds were also threatening for pouring rain, good time it was only threatening. Waited with excitement for 15 days to watch it as our usual way of watch films in theater after 15 days of the release, to watch it in normal fair.

When it comes as, which one makes me to wish more this film is the superstar or shanker….. I go with shanker. Really an expectation rises, how he is going to create this film with superstar as a hero. Shankar a person who comes out from the matter of heroism of giving more important for their stage of hero and giving only positive character. In all his other films, he gives important for the character and the message, not for the hero. Here he really waned to make story surrounding superstar and his style. I think this is the problem for shankar to making the story for Shivaji. Even though in his style he tried to aware people of this bribe culture with government officials for getting permission to plans; and the interesting way of collecting the black money and trying to use it for poor is good, but shankar forget to show the social scenes deeper with emotion, when he indicate how the black money stops the poor’s growth.

Nowadays people expect some thing different in character and getup change, but bringing the old appearance of superstar after 20 years as young as he was in 80’s was amazing. Even they use a lot of make ups and rich latest technology in his style, the simple shaved head rajini was really cool and it was an unusual style for rajini admires. All songs are wonderful, and it all goes to Shankar, his idea and choice of sights and K.V. Anand’s picturesque. The truth is I was at confusion in which to adore in the songs, the style of superstar or the wonder of grand or the very grand beauty of shreya or the art in every frame. I must have to watch the songs for more times to get enthusiasm on everything. If Balleilakka was total reflect of the basic Indian tradition and the scenic green abundance of charming, the White Tamilan song was great enjoyment in mixture of white and black skins, the making of the song was surprising when the media cleared the secret how our superstar got that white skin, from a white girl. Vaaji Vaaji was a great song in Thotatharani’s huge kingdom set and the costume deigned for shreya and superstar was beautiful, looking like a queen and king. Athiradee song simply shakes, even the open theater for the DTS effects in the songs and fights.

Hats off to shanker and petterhain for the stunts sequence, esp the Drive-in car crashing was equal to Hollywood films. It was little feeling when the musical instruments in the store were played and braked in the fight; its the recall of Thillu Mullu rajini with action and comedy. It was surprising that what I was thinking was also said in the film. Their was this scene were shivaji comes to a village and announce the people that we will give u free education, hospital and employment for ur children and create the land for agriculture and what u have to do is just do the agriculture and make the place green and develop the growth of nation. It was good that we needed development and also we need to save the agriculture. There are much to write, and much to watch… long waited Shivaji No.1 winner, long waited Taj No.1 wonder.

me, 1st to comment.
shivaji is an amazing movie for rajni! My first opinion after seeing the movie is "Rajni movies can't get any better than shivaji. He can consider retirement by having sivaji as his last hit movie!"
