Err.... Its TR!!
The main advantage with DVD players is that U get to see some extremely good classics like shawshank redemption and MCKenna's gold. On the other hand, U also get to see movies, which are so bad, that its good. Sample:
Porukki Pokkiri (a typical B movie that Ilaya Thalapathy is capable of) and Veerasamy. It is a bit old to blog about Veerasamy, but Thalaivar’s pilims are evergreen.
Now in Tamil movies there are action heroes and then, there is Veerasamy!! The guy never tires you out with his antics on screen. The women in his movies, these days, have weird names, like “Rouse Rani” and “Salt
Kottai Koattai Sarasu”. I wonder what the name would have been if the name had been Beena, “Blouse Beena”?? Neways, TR plays an MLA, Lawyer, Local Rowdy, and also a Romeo in the movie. Mumtaj plays his love interest.
The first scene shows Rouse Rani disrupting a middle class household. Mumtaj tries to come to the rescue of the people, but is thwarted. You get a feeling that Thalaivar is going to set the screen alight. A car blows up (Earthquake??). U get a shiver up your spine. It is then that Mumtaj utters the immortal words,
“Sollaama varrathu Tsunami,
Sollittu varuvaaru intha Veerasamy”
“That which comes without any announcement, is tsunami,
Whereas the person who announces and then arrives is Veerasamy”
The scene changes and we get to see not one, not two, but three TRs(The TV in our house refused to show 3 TRs :( ), with sickles, knives, etc bouncing off his body!! TR decimates the rowdies and peace is restored. Dialogue time again, with TR telling Rouse Rani (RR) that, “Nee aalaanathu Alwarpet, nee kalyaanam panninathu kannamma pettayila…. “ (Ennaala Mudiyala!!)
TR and his sister live happily in a house. Yes there is a scene in which TR goes, “Thangachi……” His sister studies in a co-ed college. The usual cliché, a vamp in a dress which is low everywhere, also studies in that college. She is the villain’s (a minister) sister. It is here that TR plays his trump card, a lesbian twist. His sister falls into love with a
guy gal guy gal, well, ok, “near gal” guy. For convenience sake, I have taken him/her to be a gal, who is none other than Rouse Rani’s sibling.
TR though disgusted, goes and asks Rouse to accept his sister. Problem erupts there when Rouse asks TR to beg for forgiveness. In the mean while, TR has clashes with the minister also. He gets into the house when the minister is attempting kasa musa. The minister is totally shattered when TR utters,
“Intha vasantha senaikku nee use pannuva Viagra,
Dialogue paesarathila naan Manogara”
I guess Sivaji must be suffering multiple deaths in his grave :(
Mumtaj comes over to TR’s house and starts working as a maid. TR and Mumtaj start loving each other. Mumtaj uses TR’s soap when he is not around. (karumam karumam) The fact that the soap has touched just TR’s beard is enough to dissuade anyone from touching that soap. But this is divine love!! :)
What to watch out for:
1) TR’s whatever’s left of his face’s expressions. His romantic expressions, his violent expressions, his compassionate expressions, his passionate expressions…….. all remain the same, a constipated one!!
2) Songs. In which other movie will you get the lyrics, “kanniyae kaathal chinnam Titanic, Atha moozhgaama seyyirathu namma Technique” :)?
3) TR’s dance in “vechirukkaen, naan vechirukkaen” and “Unnai kaathalikka…” It goes like this, “Raise right leg, then left hand, then left leg, and finally right hand”. It should be symmetrical
4) TR’s sleeveless sweat shirt.
5) Punch dialogues are spoken by everyone, from the villain to hero.
