I used to be a big time Kamal fan, those where the days; religiously following Thalaivar’s hair style dress code etc. Now I am just a fan of good movies that’s all.
The last Kamal movie I saw in theater was Vettaiyadu Velaiyadu. I was in for a shock, to see my favorite screen icon turning up as over bloated sagging old man. The make up didn’t help at all.
The worst part was in the acting department no expressions in his face.
As if he had Botox. Perhaps he wasn’t interested in the project or something went wrong.
Or is it just me who can’t face up the fact that my favorite actor is after all a human who happens to go through cycle of time just like rest of us. I wish both Kamal and Rajini takes up role like Big B that suite their age. Thankfully they don’t play the college dudes anymore.
Anyway getting back to the topic these are the only reviews at least in my personal opinion were good and make an interesting read.
In no particular order
(Maami’s has an interesting take on Kamal himself)
Kamal X Kamal - Interesting review by Baskar in News Today (Towards end he gives away the plot so read only the first half of it)
And finally our own sirippu mannan Praveen's review of the movie- As always had me rolling on the floor.
To me personally Sagarasangamam/Salangai Oli is still one of the best movies of Kamalji.
