This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Dorothea: I heard this story about a fish. He swims up to this older fish and says, "I'm trying to find this thing they call the ocean." "The ocean?" says the older fish. "That's what you're in right now." "This?" says the young fish. "This is water. What I want is the ocean."
I made the mistake of thinking that if a movie has a younger audience in mind, it can be excused for its basic and simple plot. But…
Extra half a star for Fennel making an engaging film revolving around the theme of sexual assault, without actually showing any graphical sexual scenes.
I mean, if you apparently 'need' system-shocking scenes of women being assaulted or prolonged scenes of sex to get a point across, then this film is an exceptional work of art, right?
Well let's just put one thing aside. This is no feminist movie. This is a movie that centres on Vijay's character (a man) and how great he is. With almost half the population in the film worshipping him. Its very unrealistic with its graphics (plus certain scenes) and sometimes it has no flow.
But, in comparison to other Kollywood films it was a really good movie for the female audience. And the commercial aspects of the movie were really enjoyable…
