Sivaji-Movie Review

Sivaji- The F.L.O.P –(When Rajini became Robinhood! )

or

SIVAJI The L.O.S.S (Loss of Sixth Sense)



If you felt the above caption has some tinkering to do in English grammar, then don’t worry, SIVAJI is bound to surprise you with many such titles at the start of the film, and as time goes on SIVAJI is bound to grip you to your seats, as the guilty feeling of having committed 300 Rs for the film would strike you several times over, during the movie.

The movie is basically a poor attempt at sarcasm and humor , that aims to attract the onlookers based on the make up that makes Rajnikant a good 25 years younger and has all the trappings of being a masala movie without substance. Generally Rajnikant has looked in command when he delivers his punch dialogues, amidst a somewhat OK story in the last few years, but SIVAJI, has only punch dialogues, repeat charisma and a terribly screwed story line.

Sivaji THE B.O.S.S(Bachelor of Social Service) starts off with images of the central jail in Chennai with a car arriving and as soon as the car stops a boot emerges out of the car. The audience in the theater who have been reserving their shrieks and cat calls, wait for the moment of truth and when the boot emerges out of the car, the audience breaks into a frenzy unparralled. Rajnikanth has cleverly used people in the movie who break out into a hysterical chest beating, pretty much on the lines of how Micheal Jackson used to attract his fans. The theatre resembles a mini Eden gardens that erupts every time Rajnikant’s face is flashed on the screen.

Rajnikant, is jailed for embezzling “x” crores and why he was jailed forms the first part of the story before you wait with unabated breath for the signal of intermission. The first half delves into the life of Sivaji, a US Software architect who comes to India with noble aims of building free for all colleges and hospitals. Sivaji, has his entourage and man Friday in the form of the comedian Vivek, who struggles under the shadows of Rajnikant this time. Vivek’s performance as a second fiddle comedian, totally wastes his creativity and his comedy in the movie has only a cursory effect which is so unlike the impact he has had in other movies like Run or Minnale. Vivek does manage to lift your spirits up with some cheeky dialogues, but surely pales in comparison to his previous comedies.


With Vivek as his man Friday, Rajnikant starts to give press conferences on his “free for all model” and asks for support from a politician called “Adiseshan”. Adisheshan , being the perfect politician, is a strict disciplinarian when it comes to making money the illegal way and he bears no grudges about using the politics medium to make money. Adiseshan has an engineering college and a medical college, where he seems to follow only a single window system where he sits near the window and admits students on capitation fees.Adiseshan feels that Rajnikant may eat up into his revenue model and plans to do all he can to ruin him.

Rajnikant sees this and with even renewed vigour begins to start work on his project, but his project has to go through the hurdles of bribery at statistically 16 points indicating the various levels in bribery.He bribes the ministers and starts constructing his dream complex. Meanwhile the “young” Rajnikant tries and woos the sexy shreya, who plays the perfect tamil girl, who falls in love with a hero without even interacting with the hero. Shreya is spotted at a temple and Vivek plays agony aunt, in getting Rajnikant and Shreya together. Shreya seems to have adapted to various costumes well enough. She looks the petite Tam brahm girl by the role, which undergoes a rather 180 degree transformation in the songs where she is reduced to a gaudy slut with too many colours on her, and of course Rajini competing with her on the gaudiness quotient.The way Rajini and Shreya decide to "love" each other is bound to make you laugh, and this is where first instances of loose direction is visible. I still cannot believe that Shankar made the movie and A.R.Rehman composed the music. Songs seem to appear out of nowhere and some crazy and gaudy make up dominates most of the songs except the first song featuring Nayantara. The music is not worth giving a ear to and is a huge let down to A.R.Rehman fans.



Shreya looks the saving grace of the movie, especially if you cant picture Rajnikant as a Keanu Reaves clone, doing the matrix stunts with his phoney American accent of saying “cool cool” every time he asserts his superiority. Shreya, is basically a doll in the movie who seems to have more faith in the theory that if a monkey shows up 10 times at the house and asks her hand for marriage, she would marry. Don’t fume at me, that’s what the story conveys, where Rajnikant does crazy tricks to woo her and tells he wants to marry her, because he likes her at first sight and Shreya keeps avoiding him, before in a bizarre moment she says she likes him, and it’s a Rajni movie, so no questions on story and how things happen. Looks like Director Shankar has taken that fact to his advantage in producing an illogical movie (Read Drivel). Other things that will have you entertained would be Rajini walking in a leather jacket in Chennai, with the sun blazing, Rajini doing a mini Chayya Chayya fight sequence, a so-called angry man rowdies- better -be-beware -look and when he makes Newton and Keanu reaves pale to shame during the fight sequence.



If some did say he/she enjoyed the first half, then I suggest the person needs a vacation in an island all by himself to get back to sanity. An overdose of Rajinikant’s pyro techniques and style can sometimes be too much and can induce sleep as a few of my friends discovered early this morning when we watched the movie. The movie seems to follow a archaic formula which evokes responses of “ been there done that “. Its basically “Ghilli meets Matrix, as Robin Hood and an overdose of Rajnikant to rake up the moolah” . Watching Rajnikant with his so called punch dialogoues and gravity defying acts of warfare you’d throw up your hands in exasperation, if entertainment was all that you wanted in those 180 minutes of pre booking that burnt a huge 300 rs in your purse.

The second half, is all about how our hero reclaims lost property (oops is that a spoiler now? ). Incidentally the second half is a battle between the politician Adi and Rajnikant over how each usrps the others property.

Final Take

1) Lacks finesse in the direction
2) The movie is a formulaic adaptation pandering to the masses
3) Logic is screwed, especially the robin hood one, where he asks all tax payers to give the black money to him so that he routes the money to give it to the poor to build colleges. Shankar has left emotions overtake sense in this movie, with his addiction towards social issues.
4) Audio not too compelling to have you hum the tunes as you get out of the theatre
5) The movie will be a SUPER HIT, because the audience comes in only for Rajini’s moves and not for the story. By the way, don’t search for a story after you have made it to the theatre. Any amount of google search would not find any satisfactory results.



6) Even as I am typing this, I hear “Rajnikant “ being compared to Amitabh Bachan in SUN NEWS. Though Rajnikant’s success in terms of days run can put any actor to pale in comparison, I would go on record to say that Rajnikant is only a fraction of what Amitabh Bachan or a Kamala Hassan in terms of emotive ability and versatility in dialogue delivery.
7) I have decided to cash in on the “RAJINI SIVAJI “ boom by using my MBA lessons to become a millionare by re selling SIVAJI tickets.

Rajnikanth, not quite Marlon Brando yet.... but yes, Keanu Reaves has got some body giving him a run for his money!

Dude u must be crazy to make this statement. You have shown the true colors of a kamal fan. If you can't digest the victory and celebration of Sivaji better stay at home and wait for 10 avatars.

Dare u write anything negative about thalaivar. Let me know your holidays I can arrange a treatment for you at Kumarkoam in kerala. I think ur stomach might be really hot (vayiru erichal) and may be u need a good oil bath to let out all your frustrations of being a kamal fan during the golden era of Sivaji release.

This movie has already been declared blockbuster with reviews from all over the world. We don't need ur vayiru erichall crap to prod us watch the God on screen..

Thanks for the great review, Karthik. You have thus far shown yourself to be a sensible young man, and I am sure your review was an honest intepretation of what you saw.

It takes a good reviewer to set the "fan" in him aside and do an honest critique and I applaud you for taking it on.

The rest of you, the word "fan" comes from the root word "fanatic", which ,means blind, unwavering devotion to something. I guess you all qualify.

First things first:

I haven't personally watched the movie yet. But the comments and reviews from my friends makes me feel the movie exceeds the expectations of most viewers (there might be some odd cases like you of course!).

Blog is a space where you can post whatever you personally feel. If the intention was to gain popularity - this review is a total shit.

Anyways, let us see what the other part of the world has got to say. Then we'll be able to decide whether it was truly from your heart or it was just a critic in you with no attitude to appreciate art!

For all the ppl who have commented prior 2 me.. This is HIS blog and he has the right to write his mind! Suppose you find the movie really good.. then please post tht!!

pooja said...

I trul agree with you.

You are most sensible person I have come across so far.

I have beleived that most Rajni movies always portray him as B.O.S.S( Bachelor of social servie)....which is not true in reality.... The real world unfortunately unlike the reel world has not much of people involved in social service........

There has been a Hype for the movie only coz it is a Rajnikanth Movie and I think he can never ever compete with actors like the Big B

vijayaraj said...

Kartik...i haven't seen the movie yet,so i refrain myself from commenting on your review(or the spillings from your heart)

But your comments on the music for the film is rather half-assed. Sorry for being rude....but any modern music lover would say that to you.

Yesour said...

Karthik,

I haven't seen the movie yet but am definitely gonna watch it atleast for the hype that it has created. Your review is well written. What most of Rajni fans reading your review may be missing out to see is probably that you have not mentioned anything wrong/false(according to me) about Rajni, in particular, except his emotive capability (which I'm sure Rajni himself would agree). There are definitely a lot of good and better actors around, not just Amitabh,/Kamal. But Rajni is a star and a very stylish one at that! We all like his style, punch dialogues, etc...but I agree that there's a limit to how commercially one cud use it! Gud one, in short!

And the other fans, your devotion to your role model is appreciated but an opinion is an opinion!!! Chill out and relax, if you know for sure that thalaivar or his movie is no way going to be affected by this!!!!!

Anonymous said...

The film is good kanna, except 4 the poor story line, the rajni styles are unique and thats enough to make it a super hit, umay known dhoom2 was heavily criticized but a great hit, i watched it 2day morning, its ok except 4 the story, the film is fanatstic with style and modernity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!tyhe comedy u got to mention is really fantatsic!!!!!!!!!!!

The music is not worth giving a ear to and is a huge let down to A.R.Rehman fans."

- If you think that this music is a huge let down to ARR fans then I guess you need to read a bit before you can croak about.

"If some did say he/she enjoyed the first half, then I suggest the person needs a vacation in an island all by himself to get back to sanity."

- Oh yeah! From this list of comments anyone can say who needs a place in the island..

"and his comedy in the movie has only a cursory effect which is so unlike the impact he has had in other movies like Run or Minnale. Vivek does manage to lift your spirits up with some cheeky dialogues, but surely pales in comparison to his previous comedies."

-- If his previous good comedies were Run and Minnale than you shouldnt have taken the topic if good comedy is expected from a guy who lacked it for 5 yrs now..

"She looks the petite Tam brahm girl by the role, which undergoes a rather 180 degree transformation in the songs where she is reduced to a gaudy slut with too many colours on her, and of course Rajini competing with her on the gaudiness quotient."

If you confuse gandeur with gaudy and think that as slutty, then I expect the same when your .. do that and when I see her. (X)

"his phoney American accent of saying “cool cool” every time he asserts his superiority"
-- dei un vayatherichal puriyudhu.. if your Big B or Kamal doesnt have such a screen presence or ur so-called superiority.. dont look onto this genre of films..

In all.. its quite STUPID to start commenting on this genre of entertainment films if you are so logical-thinking nerd..

It works different palooka!

Swati said...

Though I would prefer to refrain from commenting as I haven't seen the movie yet, the guy sitting next to me, read your katchu "crap" and said this guy is a crazy ass!

Sorry. But I can't help laughing at his statement!! Afterall, you really are..!!

And to the girl who said "I think he can never ever compete with actors like the Big B". Cine field is about art. Artists have their own style. It's a stupidity to compare two such mega artists emerging from two diverse fields!

Still if you want to go by what to say.. Then, "I think Big B can never ever compete with the one and only actor Rajnikanth" - ippidiyum sollalaam :-)

Well.. To the blogger who thinks he can write good, remember there are people who can comment better! Do not attempt to take this as a positive criticism. Critics don't need it. At end of the day, this page is screwed up.

Get a life brother! But you don't need to hide your face, continue blogging... I mean, crapping...

Interesting comments on the movie. Obviously inflammatory according to a lot of folks. The lines about shankar not delivering were true and its been the same old grind for quite some time. Decent review but inflammatory to say the least. Check out my review at yagnyesh.blogspot.com - to get a feel of how it was in the US of A

Cheap fame under Rajni umbrella!!
first you dont know what to expect out of Rajni movie. It is like going to Anjappar non-veg restaurant, criticising the adai-aviaal you had just eaten. You don't Rajni movie expecting a A Streetcar Named Desire

second you dont know whom to compare with whom. Kamal, Big B, Brando. Man you just put in all the big names. Rajni is totally a different genre from all these actors.

set your expectations right and then write about someone whom you want to cricise.

But hats off to you in pulling so many eyeballs to your cheap post albeit being an old trick.
And this is not the first time i think you are posting what you dont know about. social bookmarking...hilarious man!!!

Once Nandita Das said, "the problem with India is... not that we lack good and intelligent people, but only bad and stupid people gather around and make noise".

I kind of believed that. But, after seeing all these non-sense for a stupid movie, I strongly doubt that.

Fools, at least allow him to convey his views. What a bad taste of attacking him personally!

Hi....

Its good to see a bad review about a much hyped Rajni film. It makes us still more intersting to watch the film because we need to know what they have really done it.
Karthik is helping every individual to watch the movie, but in a negative way... thanks...

Also it is essential to note that, its very very tough job to combine Shankar's ability with Rajni's way of working. There may / will be certain drop points in any of their aspects in due course of the scenes but an effort is an effort which made the giants(avm/shankar/rajni/arrehman) unite in a single project.
Thanks karthik for making Sivaji a big hit.............

The meaning of the word FAN is nothing but worship. And GOD can not do anything wrong is the understanding. If Rajanikanth or for that matter anybody has a hughhhhhh fan following, then dont question about what ever he does. Whatever he does is liked by his FANS and they do not like any adverse comment on him even if it is a fact. It is just matter of numbers. In India majority drives everything whether it is right or wrong and success for this movie will be measured in money and not in the quality.

The movie might be good might not be good, but is going to be a super hit based on the calculations i.e. if every fan sees this movie once / twice etc..

how do they get hit?Uhm..well thats food for thought for the people who go and watch the asshole's movie.I'm waiting for the next freak show of this ass to get released..at least that would mean "much ado about nothing" ;)

I agree with you 100% Rajini should stop ruining his name. This movie was retarded I waited an year to see it and all it showed me was that commonsense is of no value to these a-holes (shanker. avm. rajini) who lives hours after they die because of cpr?

DAMN SHAME. I AM SHAMED TO HAVE WASTED MY TIME AND MONEY.

Krish Ashok said...

First off, I am a huge Rajini fan and I actually spent $20 on a Chandramukhi ticket in Austin, TX a few years back. All of us came out of the movie laughing our asses off screaming "laka laka laka" at each other. Ofcourse, the movie was lame, but hugely entertaining in a ridiculous sort of way. In fact, my mallu friends were squirming at the blatant insult that movie was on the classy original. But hey, Rajini is Rajini and if anybody can carry a bad movie, he can.

But hey, Karthik has the right to his opinion, and all the rest of us have the right to comment and disagree with him. But ad hominem attacks on Karthik just doesnt cut it. It cheapens the whole debate. It might make more sense to point out flaws in his review rather than question his motivations and character.

It's interesting to observe that the most erudite, polite and thoughtful disagreements (such as "Stupid idiots", "conceited piece of tripe" and "Sore Loser") come from anonymous logins.

Karthik thanx for the wonderful review. It is kind of mass-hysteria that people are going thru. Any Rajni movie however crap it is they want to watch it and tell it to world shouting at top of their voice that Rajni is superstar, his movies are screened in Japan, US. He is the highest paid actor, costliest film ever.. blah..blah.
Any sensible person won't be carried away by gravity defying acts, super human stuff and only style. There are movies dedicated to those like Batman, Spider man etc. The flim world is cashing on Rajni's popularity rather it is loyalty of fanatic fans that's making them do so. God save ....

Karthik kannan is speaking as if he has mastered everything in life. He speaks as if all the people who have watched the movie are mad. A movie is just for entertainment and this movie has full filled what we expected. I saw KK's profile. Boy's is one of his favorite movies. And Hum Tum. Oh my GOD u gotta be kidding. People who have such bad taste can't comment on Sivaji. And u listen to Backstreet boys and Celene Dion. I think u just know Celene Dion because she sang the Titanic sound track. When u have such bad taste u cant comment about A.R.Rahman's music in Sivaji. Over all Karthik Kannan (KK) has proved to be a Kaena Kabodhi(KK). The movie is already a blockbuster. Don't waste time blogging dude. do something creative rather than doing something like this. Learn to appreciate whats there in the movie rather than commenting on whats been left out.

rajesh said...

finally watched the movie.will agree on some aspects of ur post.like the poor first half.

and kindly correct some mistakes.adi is not a politician.he is just a kingmaker. just cos he overthrew the incumbent doesn't make him a politician.and that he is a us returned but indian software architect.

vivek was good.u cant expect him to get the same importance he got in movies like run and minnale.wondered why those two had maddy as the hero.people are here to see rajni not vivek.

shreya was good.yeah the costumes were gaudy but slut?thats hyperbole.never seen a tamil movie before?

i wonder what u want from ar rahman. that guy was entrusted to come up with nos for a rajni movie.

all in all i feel ur post borders on the provocative.probably this was the best way u cud bring back readers to ur blog.

Wow.. man.. You should have removed those last lines about kamal and stuff.. :-) it broke your credibility dude.. Did you notice that The best technicians ever to work in Film industry had thier hands on this movie? What were you doing when the movie was runnig? Why did you go for a preview show witha 300 Rs ticket then?
You did have a single word to tell about the technical finnesse the movie had.. and more oevr you compared the movie with MATRIx.. Keanu reeves.. Dude now tell me when was the last time you started comparing ENGLISH movies with a regional language one? So definlty by making you do so everyone's effort got noticed.

300 Rupee preview show.?? Why and How??. I watched it for 25$.. and you know what? The movie was good.. stress buster..

I was never a rajini fan and always preferred kamal movies. AB, i dont know... dont talk abt hidi movies, There is more skin than substance in hindi movies.. Sivaji is better than any of those movies.. anyways i dont watch em either..

The movie was something that doesnt make you sit serious and break your head.. just plain simple enjoyment.. Rajini has his way of movies and thats what should be expected not a "life is beautiful" If you expect that you gotta need an island all for yourself. For a true blooded Rajini fan this is an lifetime treat for a normal "Tamil movie goer" ( not th English movie loving, keanu comparers) It is good movie that can give you 3 hrs of fun .. like a fair ride..

"who lives hours after they die because of cpr"

hahaha SO TRUE! I can't believe Raguvaran was explaining to Rajini what CPR was. It was like a primary school health class.
gooosh what an insult to our intelligence.

The music/songs were crap...ARR is so over rated these days.

I wondered if Rajini owned College 'Ashram' or whatever it's called is run tuition free for under privileged students. Apparently not.
Dude Rajini man, practice what u preach for goodness sakes!

Newayz, Karthik I warned my friends prior to the screening- not that we were expecting anything of value.

Rajani acted very well in this movie. But the story did not have a strong hold rather a total flop. Shreya was dancing like Shakira...awesome hip movements. There are better movies around so don't spend lot of money in this movie. when this movie comes at normal price, may be u can watch it just for the hype about it...like following the crowd without knowing why....u can either be smart or go with the crowd...it's ur choice...

Nice review.. Not the kind of movie you would expect from Shankar.. Rajni looks too old.. The romantic part could have been reduced instead of dominating the first half.. Even the second half does not keep you engrossed... Maybe rajni will make his next movie taking his age into consideration..

Gandhiyan, Michigan, USA said...

The original comments started this thread is TRUE except for the comments on the music. The music was all that bad! The music was indeed good. The choreography of the songs is also nice.
I am not a fan to any particular actor but like all good quality movies in all languages.
Shankar movie means usually grandeur in scale. and Rajni movie means some non-sense steps (which by the way, is favorite among Rajni fans). With no offense to anybody, when both Shankar and Rajni joined forces, it has become non-sense magnified in grandeur scale. This is the SAD truth but unfortunately, Rajni fans will start attacking people who have different views than respecting and trying to think and critique the movie in a constructive manner. Love and affection for a man you like is one thing but delivering a bad movie to the society is another thing (think of Baba for instance).

Anonymous said...

Hi - Based on what I hear from my friend's group, the review seems to be doing OK(only few of them are hardcore Rajini fans) though it was not great.. anyway, everyone is entitled to have his own opinion.

Infact I agree with one of the respondents that your review on the songs is not correct.. most of the songs are good, if not all.

One thing I want to say - Don't Compare Rajini With Kamal & likes of him.. Every actor has his unique acting style & so does Rajini.. All that matters is how he attracts the audience with his acting.. that's all about it..

Cheers,
TIE.

I was tempted to leave a comment after going through all the outrageous insults heaped on you. My husband is a big Rajnikanth fan, while I am not really a fan but certainly enjoy watching his movies. Though I havent watched the movie yet,I do feel it lacks a strong script (unlike Chandramukhi and Anniyan) which itself is a major letdown. Secondly anyone with no prejudices blinding them would agree that Kamal and Amitabh are far superior in terms of sheer acting talent.Rajni's USP is his unique style which cannot stand on its own if not supported by a good script.I am sure Rajnikanth has performed very well within his limitations in this movie since he is an honest and hardworking actor. I would blame Shankar for not having met the high standard he has set for himself.

OH WELL...watched Sivaji / Shivaji in Telugu n found it to be a story with BAD plot...Sad that this flick came from the guy who gave the awesome Aparichitudu / Anniyan… things jzt weren’t right in this one! The movie DOES drive a message, B-U-T with an Artificial Treatment... MY MY!!! The fight sequences were testing patience, what a drag! I must say, these aren't one of those days when the hero punches in the air and the goons fly like a fountain the land in a rubble... It jzt wasn’t so Cool when Rajini was tryin to say COOOOOOL!!! Did anyone found it to be stylish? coz NONE of the crowd who were watching it did! The movie was accomodated and compromised for Rajini's Star status (and Age)...The song picturisations are gud though the dubbed ones were jzt plain BAD to listen. dint seem like it was a 60 something crore budget one. This is jzt NOT a Rajini- Shankar’s kinda flick…Simply disappointing. Shankar, Better Luck next time!

i wasted 30 dollars on this worthless movie. it is the usual masala movie without any story line. the hype is more than the worth of this movie. the songs you cannot even malke out the words with the loud techno backround. this is the same stroy line like indian,annian etc.in Rajini style. whatever make up they used on Rajini it still shows his age. i think everybody is going to this movie because they can critisise this movie better than the other. total waste

Hi Karthik, I have not seen the movie yet, but I still wouldn't agree to your review. I wouldn't say that the points you have taken up in your review are not valid, but they're just not valid for a Rajini movie.
We all know what to expect out of a Kamal's movie,and what to expect out of a Rajini's movie.
Its plain obvious that you don't know how to enjoy a Rajini movie, and in such a case, you shouldn't have gone to the movie in the first place.

The review by karthick is absolutely valid.Only die hard rajinin fans can enjoy the movie and nobody else can even watch.

NRI said...

I read the review and a few comments posted in this blog...I appalled by the intolerance. I saw the movie and was disappointed. I did like the songs and as usual, Shankar did do a good job filming Rahman’s tunes. Overall story and screenplay was not up to Shankar’s standards and there was no logic what so ever. The way Rajini tries to woo Shreya & her family was silly and annoying. They have shown laundering money to be as easy as buying a pop corn; it is not a joke to launder billions and scenes lack credibility. All big wigs with black money and power surrender to Rajinikanth and he successfully goes ahead with his plans…plssssssssss. This is the worst Shankar movie ever. Only a person who blindly adores Rajinikanth would like this movie.

Anonymous said...

oh dear! what a waste of precious monie and time.

the movie sucked rite 4m d start. there is no story till interval. the particular scenes where rajini along with his family trying to impress shriya were disgusting and irritating.not to mention the fights.in the second half things happen so fast that makes us wonder if the bad guys are really bad then how cme they suerrnder part of their wealth to some anonymous blackmailer????? the CPR scene was pathetically written. could not make head or tail out of the songs. but they were good to watch.

this movie is strictly for rajini fans as they are already used to leave their brains behind n go to d theatre. how much ever rajini's fans scream and break the ground beneath it is declared mega FLOP.

the fact that it came from shankar still leaves me speachless.

Anonymous said...

Finally i made it to the movie but came out cursing shankar. it is not any damn joke when ppl throng to buy the tickets in black for as much as over 1000 bucks.thankfully am not one of them.

shankar deserves all the criticism coz there are high hopes riding on him post anniyan. forget anniyan, all his movies were damn good with strong scripts , star cast, great music and screenplay. it is acceptable if sivaji fails for a reason or two, but having no sense in the movie at all and falling below acceptable standards is a grave mistake on shankars part. also special mention about ARR, he made more noise than music. he is slowly losing his sheen.

hope people get over the hype as soon as poss.

Anonymous said...

cannot write off shankar for just one bad movie. his movies are really good. but shivaji is just a nightmare.

rajini's wardrobe needs a serious consideration in his further movies. he wears too many jackets and coats throughout.but his makeup was unforgiveable.

talking about jackets and coats you would definitely not want to watch his wrinkled hands. it was an attempt to cover the same.

Naveen said...

Yes I do agree with this Point.The movie is a crap and would be considered to be the worst film in Shankar's making.Ar Rahman 's attempt in the BGM is a drastic failure.Most of my friends are still having a negative opinion about it.Last Night my friend's whole family had been for it and concluded that Its an Horrible ,Idiotic movie.

(Iam not an ardent fan of rajini)Finally i got to see the movie..trust me it's the first rajini movie that i had watched in the very first week of it's opening.For all of you talkig about logic and blah blah blah..do you really think movies have logic in them these days???i guess most of us woud have enjoyed all of that MI 1,2 AND 3 and never gave a damn of what tom cruise and co was really doing..why can't we accept the same for our own tamil movies???I appreciate shankar for his own real work unlike the others(esp the latest bollywood directors)who do a cut copy and pste..even the most acclaimed "black" was a remake nah copy of an old english movie.I appreciate him for showing rajini his way..and most importatly for not adding all the anti woman dialogues!!It definitely deserves a much better review than what Mr.kartik kannan has scribbled.For heaven's sake kartik get out of your iyer clone.Unless and until you do that you are gonna loose all your readers(includin me!)I dont understand why you need to proclaim it in every post of yours(gawd you even cmpare shreya to a maami!)Grow up man atleast our gen shouldn't get stuck in all these issues.Inspite of all of this, kudos to you kartik for writing such an unworthy review on the very nxt day of the movie's release and thus triggering all your reader's emotions(including me) which made all of us comment on it and thus increasing your blog visits.You even triggered the most sensitive north indian vs south indian feeling by comparing amitabh and rajini and added more masala by bringing in kamal haasan!!!It is a very cheap way to increase yor popularity but nevertheless very clever.But you know what i would call even this as a good advertisement for sivaji you defiitely got me curious and made me watch it in theatre the very first week which i had never done before for a rajini's movie!!..
cheers and yeah thanks

one think we have to appreciate in sivaji movie is that he looks very young and bubbly when compared to previous movies.The story line is as usual masala mixed with certain sentiments to enthrall the fans.it is better to ignore all comments after watching a movie

okay you list Backstreet boys and celine dion as your favorites and K3G and the rest of the hindi movies as your favorites movies. No wonder you did not like Shivaji.
Next time before commenting about movies and music, do develop a good taste in music(clue listen to good rock bands like doors or deep purple) and watch good movies, not the cheap flick in hindi.

hmm. Good review. I should have read it before I went to the movie on the weekend. Bugger!. Wasted time and money. Expected better narration from Shankar. Rajini's charisma is the only saving factor. Should have watched it on the DVD.

Hey dear

I know the reason for your review. bcoz the whole world praises him and the movie to break all the records. Can Amitab movbies making any record in Abroad? Is kamal movies making any records like rajini's movie? see you should the movie in movie point of view not the way you wrote. The expectation is tooooo high for all rajini's movies so for you it may not be fullfilled. But truth always bitter to all.

The reason for this kind of review is, All review says it is good so no one will see your review if you also say the movie is good. so you want to be different so that you raise your blog visits counts.. Here also you are using Superstar.

Any how buddy keep it up.

As Rajini says.. Kagam paranthalum VANAM Alugkakathu (Even crows flies over the sky, The sky will never become dirty as you think)

In case you want to scold me you are always welcome to drop a mail to mail box @ carthickeyan@gmail.com

Last week I watched this movie in Bangalore...

The movie name should be Sivaji the C.R.A.P.

Waste of time and money.

Postive things about the movie:

1. Cinematography
2. Art Direction
3. Music
4. Shreya.


Negative things :

1. Story.
2. Rajinikanth (please leave him he can't even shake his leg properly..It is high time he retires or acts in the role whish suites the age...
3. Comedy (Was it there in the movie ..except the Livingston lakala..)
4. Action Sequences. (Don't know what is happening in the movie.)

Rajinikanth the shit said...

Why are we even discussing this? Don't you guys think there have already been enough comments for a movie as C R A P P Y as Sivaji..

I think I'll vomit even if I get close to the movie ;)

I echo ur view, but Kamal hassan not comparable with Amitha Bachan, u must be a nut. Everyone have a different talent, AMitha is not a superior.

Anonymous said...

I am partially agreed with your views, it is a Sivaji Rao's movie to quench the thirst of Rajnikanth's fan, off course it is a typical alpha-male bragging political thingamabob stories.
Nevertheless I enjoyed watching the movie as it is not the worst or a total crap.
I liked some of the scenes such as " if u r not sivaji who are u then? I am MGR' that's where I should say 'cool' or bravo.
Songs..particularly.."Kaveri aarum kaikuthal ariciyum" utterly rubbish (music, choreograph, lyrics and location-not corresponding, the lyrics leading somewhere else, location at one corner and non toning music-even the costume-didn't go very well, it is like mixing beer & cocoa into sambar)
Well there are lots bootlegging !! by Shankar, obviously!!
Some of the scenes which are try to please Rajnikanth, beating in their chest, groaning in agony could have been avoided, and it seems Shankar try to imitate MGR’s cinema tactics, which is a yeakey!! cheap gimmicks to please the Tamil public, which is very disturbing and nonsense.
Well done! here comes the Karnataka Marathi saviour of Tamilnadu and tamilians. In real life, who is a pathetic coward who was an eye witness fail to address a discrimination against a poor Tamil women in Chennai airport by a local airline authorities. Typical hypocrite!!
(Same story with telugu megastar chiranjeevi daughters runaway marriage against fathers house arrest due to status-caste reasons, in contrast who has acted in similar situation has poor-outcast hero who runaway with wealthy heroines)
It is Kathick’s own opinion, no one has compelled anyone to participate, it is his own view, stop being racist and for those who were lack of vocabulary, using unpleasant words, portraits your own upbringing and maturity. (No thanks u can have all that words)
If Karthick is gaining attention via Rajni’s fame, then what about Rajni who is benefiting and playing around with Tamil sentiments and social-politic crisis...??? (With his poor tamil pronunciation after such a long span of time in Tamilnadu and todays Prithiviraj’s tamil million times perfect)
Please don’t over rate Amitha Bahchan he is no better the Rajnikanth. Frankly Bahchan’s acting irritating. (Amithabhacan, Vishnuvardhan, Chiranjeevi, Rajnikanth falls under same category)
Overall, in my own opinion it is a typical fantasy play, which is indeed a good entertainment movie. 7/10 for those who came back to rest from a hectic day, worthy to watch. cool!

I think you wrote a very unbiased and accurate review on sivaji.I watched the movie butit is a crap movie far below the hype created by it.I think Director shankar is is far overestimated for his capabilities.He has been churning his movies on the same issues.Gentleman to Sivaji. He is not to making moviespeople think and change.The storey has several flaws or thre is no storey at all.
This movie is trying to portray the larger than life image of rajini. Rajini is unfortaunately showing is age despite the heavy make up. If you study the arrival scene From america you can clearly see that.

This movie may be loved my Rajini fans who adore rajini and who shave their heads for him out of love.It will not satisfy an intelligent movie goer.

Rajini is a good person.HE has great style and charisma.He has acted in some great movies in the last two decades.I rect all the great work he has done.Rajini is close to 60.My Grandfathers age.

Rajini like Amitabh should play character roles that suit has age rather than dance and love with girls who are younger than his daughter.This is absolute stupidity.

Rajifnas must understand that everyone has a right to speak and they cant just beat every one who criticize Rajini.Rajini is another human after all..
