PULI Movie Review
Puli a high budgeted ilayathalapathi vijay starrer directed by 23rd pulikesi fame chimbudevan.A Movie has been advertised as fantasy drama which has focused more on comedy than a thriller.Lets see how this puli works for movie goers.
Chimbudevan is famous for his story telling.Fails a lot in this fantasy adventure on his direction and screenplay.Story revloves around some kingdom called vedhalam kingdom.A bunch of Villains named vedhalam has captured and ruling that kingdom.Hero of the movie lives in one of those villages which has been ruled by that vedhalam kingdom.Asusual hero falls for his child lady love.Hero’s lady love has been taken over by the villains to the kingdom in one crucial situation.How does hero vijay find his way for the kingdom what’s happening around kingdom.Does he get back his love is what puli is about.
Cast and Performances:
Vijay star performer as a male lead excels in dance with different moves and as usual in fights but his punch dialogues doesnt go well this time.As many of his dialogues were purely intentional political dialogues.Vijay has broken the formula of his previous films and acted in a different conceptual movie like this.Shruthi hasan and hansika were two female leads of puli.Shruthi plays a lady love of vijay was so pretty in her dance but voice is intolerable.Hansika as sweet charming angel shines here and there in songs as she has only little screen presence.Belly dance of both the female leads in songs were choreographed well.Rest of top actors like sudeep who plays a villain role fails a huge as there is nothing much happening on screen for his character and to beauty queen sridevi was wasted in such a nasty role .She musn’t have agreed to do this role it was such a pathetic one.Rest of actors like roboshankar,vidulekah raman,Thambi Ramaiah were just present nothing much to do for them in this movie.As we said before chimbudevan doesnt have clear idea of what he was doing looks like he simply thought of video games,old magical myth movies,a fantasy vfx movies and does this one without any clear cut narration and fails a big time in this huge budgeted one.Natty as cameraman as done his perfection and Vfx effects were pretty cool and decent by Kamalakannan but all efforts is gone in vain is what we can say.Music by devi sri prasad only one song
is good other songs looks awkard,bgm was okayish.
- Vijay dance and star power.
- VFX and Cinemautography.
- Fantasy theme.
- Pathetic Story and screenplay.
- Characterization of Sudeep and Sridevi.
- Dragging Flashback.
Puli is watachable once with friends with joy and forget it immediately.A child under age 6 has chances of enjoying this fantasy things which has been showcased as they said fantasy drama.Vijay must not do like this kind of movies in upcoming career.Watch puli for its grandenur and for vijay.
