Arinthum Ariyamalum - The movie

A lot of you folks have posted reviews on Shankar's Anniyan. I have not seen it yet. But I had the misfortune of watching movies worse than that. One such flick is Arinthum Ariyamalum.

The cast : Arya, Prakash Raj, Navdeep, a heroine not even worth a mention
The Plot : None

Review : For the first half hour, you feel that you have lost 3 hours and 30 bucks. Non-descript songs, storyline. The next 2 hours were surprisingly comical. What seems like a violent-action flick turns out to be a comedy. There are some scenes that will have you in splits and then there are some that will not.

Verdict : For Prakash Raj, the verteran, this is another feather in his cap. The biggest surprise and plus in this movie is Arya ('Imman' of Ullam Ketkume). He has given an alpha-plus performance that is quite admirable. (He is a computer Science graduate in real life). One foot-tapping, but raunchy number is "Thee Pudikka ..".

All in all, it is a decent timepass !!

Four of us watched the movie and at the end we were left wondering who on earth was the villian of the movie. Interesting to see a movie sans bad guys .
