The most awaited movie of 2014 is “Kochadaiiyaan”, and the buzz is that its a great movie. Yesterday, I had a chance to have a look at the trailer of the movie and its was good but not great. The animation, graphics and the sequences were mediocre for a movie of such huge budget. It would be funny to watch Rajini’s antics in animation (as though his original self isn’t comical).
The box-office trend in India is pathetic, most of the crap movies are declared super hits and this “Super hit” is highly questionable. Lets look at super hits of last few years Grand Masti, Robo, Dhoom 3, All Salman Khan Movies, etc, all of them are oriented on hero, sleazy dialog, item numbers, etc but totally lack innovative or thought provoking stories or characterization. This movie would also fall in the category of “hero worship” whether the movie and story is good or not it will be a super hit, this has been the case for last couple of movies of Rajani, let it be Robo/Enthiran, sivaji, etc. These were not great movies, but had lots of gimmicks and tricks which usually pleases the mass, gone are the days of annamalai, thalapathi, etc.
Kochadaiiyan is a periodical movie losely based on a Pandyan King or it might not be related at all. This movie has been postponed more than a dozen times and the reason is always different.
