Shankar’s I

Saw “I” movie which was in the bucket of the movies to be watched. Only problem was that it was in Tamil. But somehow managed it. There are some movies which i want to see without doing any work like downloading and starting it up on my system. Now about the movie, it started well with a good combination of suspense, thrill and comedy but as the movie progressed, it started feeling that director was dragging the movie.  That much dragging the storyline feels good in books but in movies, we want a concise yet beautifully explained story with sufficiently less number of characters. Shankar did well with Robot. After its promo, expectations were quite high with this movie. This movie was a misfire, yet there were brilliant performances by Vikram and Sures Gopi who played Vasudevan. Three completely different looks by the Vikram along with the acting breadth saved the audience from dozing off.

Rest actors were just busy in overacting, imagine Upen Patel who doesn’t know what basic acting is, but is keen on doing overacting. But here is his improvement visible from his previous role in 36 China Town.

Amy Jackson, you are beautiful like a Barbie doll and you were doing exactly that part in movie decorating the movie sequences just as the barbie dolls decorate our showcases in the house when the the girl who played with the doll grew up and doesn’t want to threw away the doll. If the story was a little bit more tight,  it would have reduced the length of the movie and the movie would have become bearable. No body likes a relatively long movie if it is not made by Steven Spielberg, James Cameron or Christopher Nolan. Music wise, background music was good, some songs are catchy like Isaak Taari and Tum todo na and tu chale , and some are just pain in the ears like Aila Aila. Locations were great especially the China part in the movie.

If I was allowed to rate the movie, I would give it 5.5/10.
