Angadi Theru – a walk into the street!

There’s nothing majestic to say about this movie, but it’s all about love at new site (plot) and reflection of existing life. Angadi Theru – the shopping street, bring back those memories of walking back into Ranganathan street in T.Nagar. The street being famous with chennaities exists like shopping means Ranganathan Street!

The movie discloses the concealed life behind those immense stores. It’s obvious the movie indicates the Saravana store and many other stores that bring youngsters from their native homes to employ in support there state and lives, but there are some unknown facts such as endurance are exposed here behind the joy of purchasing.

It seems like the director has taken the story from the common occurrence. The all new faces and being non famous keeps away the thought of watching a movie and characters performance is very practical and though enjoyable through comedy section – Black Pandi of kanakanum kalangal does a fabulous job, and emotion over the imposed inhuman on workers and treating them like prisoners.

Whether it’s true or illusion it’s hardly believable that slavery still exists. It’s a trend that directors turning villain these days and A. Venkathesh has the stubborn face and does worth bad supervisor being called as ebony. The lead pair is adequate to the story and looks fresh like a bloomed flower, and since it’s their debut they’re well introduced already in a different aspect.

The songs are sure to ring for long esp. Aval Appadi Onrum… is very pleasant and simple in lyrics. The Kadhaigalai Pesum… is simply rejoicing to sense adding Benny Dayal and Hamsika in sweet vocal. These are my favorite songs and often murmuring it now. Every song stands for something renews and I understand the worth of music thus created by two music directors together.

The director has observed little things well. The railway crossing incident and the vehicles run over those roadside sleepers are among those so realistic and recall the late incidents. The rubber ball cricket in village, the true taste of strawberry, the self employment of a toilet cleaner and destruction of true love are so real. I always expect the director to do more films as he touches realistic and captures the true happiness and sorrow we lost in logic. The late Album and Veyil of Vasanthabalan are my favorites, and Kadhal vaanoli… is a song from album, I badly miss and keep searching for long.

Angadi Theru, has something touching along the end, but a nice ending at busy street.

This is very good movie. It has a good story line, screenplay and a super climax. Anjali's acting is excellent. She has also shown some glamour in song scenes. The lucky hero is kiing her lips and neck in the song 'Un Per sollum'. AWESOME.

This is no ordinary movie! It is a new generation of movie! A movie that will unearth some wisdom in you! A movie you can relate to! A movie that keeps running long after the credits run on the screen...yes, it is very hard to notice the difference between the movie and the real life.

If you liked Anbe Sivan, Taare Zameen Par..., then you will relish this movie as well!

What a revolutionary movie! This movie will hit you really hard.

First of all, I was ashamed of myself that I have never thought of the struggle and challenges of so many people whom I meet everyday. How many times I would have yelled at a salesman! What an insensitive moron I would have been to such people! Shame grips you right from the beginning of the movie.

It is hard to explain or understand the fatigue and exploitation of these young people unless you watch this movie. Next time you visit a store or a one stop shop or a hotel, you will observe differently the people serving you. You will immediately notice the fatigue and their inner lives behind their smiles.

I could neither eat nor sleep after watching this movie, and for the first time I watched a disturbing movie and still can't help liking the movie. On one end you feel the sense of gratitude to god for the good lives we all enjoy and on the other you wonder whether god exists in first place after watching the sufferings of many?

The impact is so much that it has made me write my first review. I kept pondering over what you and I can do to change the conditions of such deprived people? I could think of have some answers....

1) First, watch this movie only in theatre, such movies must be financially successful as well, it will have a spiraling positive effect on other producers and directors to take such bolder social theme.

2) Second, if you really care for such people, tip them liberally the next time you shop. Every rupee counts for them!

3) Third, This movie is not about Saravana Stores alone... this has to seen in a wider perspective. This is about all establishments or individuals who employ uneducated youth. Our Tamil Nadu Government should step in and provide guidelines and laws that protect the interests of such people. Strict enforcement should be brought in place everywhere!

Our appeal to Hon'ble chief minister Shri. M. Karunanidhi.

Sir! please do something about this! This is our humble request! God has bestowed you the powers to change things than all of us put together. Please watch this movie yourself and you will know why!

4) Fourth, educate or support the growth of at least one person in your life! This will not result in a difference to the big picture but it will make a difference to that one life!

If all of us could do that, we can change the face of tomorrow’s youth. I am going to make this my priority from today.

5) Finally if you are one amongst the elite community employing them and introducing them to such conditions, remember there will be a time in your life where you will not be able to pardon yourselves. So mend your ways and improve your staffs working conditions or face your conscious in the future.

May god prevail on all of us especially those amongst us who are devoid of it!
