“Virginity is a topic people in India would rather not talk about and when they do it is in a derogatory tone.”
He has expounded his own beliefs and appreciated Trisha Illa na Nayanthara for being in-line with his thoughts.
“It’s a timely reminder for men of this generation to accept that women do have the right to change, that they can change and they certainly have along with the times; and men bloody start to live with it.”
“The underlying message in TIN is a slap on the face of the misogynists.”
While a forward thinker thinks in these terms. Rangan however sees it as:
“An okayish sex comedy where the joke is on the hero.”
Rangan sap never appreciates the efforts of creative people. He simply is condescending. To make a mediocre movie is hard as hell, as opposed to writing it off. Thus, I expect you to fucking roar laurels for a good one.
I agree that Aadhik hasn’t pushed the A rating far enough. But, give the kid a break on his debut.
Rangan says, “I loved the character named ‘Sengal’ Psycho — a lunatic who, for no reason, goes around pelting people with bricks.” – I felt the character to be idiotic and artificially inserted. Atleast in ‘Va quarter cutting’ a similar character named Theekuchi, had a backstory and purpose.
“After all, you’ve pretty much torched Thamizh kalaacharam with your heroines — why not gross us out all the way?”
I don’t even have a proper response to the statement above. “Gross us out” seriously? Critic vaala, you’re a snob.
Back to the movie.
The bold climax was the highpoint of the movie. We, after the ‘ride’ of fun filled story witness a bold move by a debutante Aadhik. Shankar didn’t dare, the ‘prostitute’ scene in Boys was pretty much a joke. S.J. Suryah, who’s known to make such movies hasn’t used a pachaa dialogue as:
“Nee matter panni irukkiya?”
In closing, efforts like TIN needs to be appreciated and welcomed. If you are a writer or a reviewer of movies in any medium, think for more than few seconds before updating your status to: ‘1st half okay, second half mokka’.
For, cinema is a livelihood for many and a burning passion for surviving artists.
However, if you witness a nightmare like 144, kindly set the director on fire. While auteurs yearn to make a movie, he has made shit.
