There's something about this movie, that it has created ripples. You can attribute the hype to the following reasons;
a) A R Rehman's Music! After the Oscars, people have been waiting for that magical music, that will literally sweep them off their feet. This time around, the benchmarks were higher, and I think- the album has achieved that.
b) It's a Gautam Menon movie; A lot of people 'loved' varanam aiyiram, but sadly the movie did not appeal to me, maybe because me and my Dad don't share that; daddy-daddy relationship.
c) The strange but fresh pairing on Simbu and Trisha; I'm not a great fan of either, but I really want to catch this flick on the big screen! Lets face it, I've fallen in love with those simple chiffon and synthetic sarees, with contrasting coloured blouses!
d) The captivating visuals and stills- they're bloody good! The marketing guys have already done a damn good job. People are hooked. That's half the job done.
This is a trailer of the Movie,
It isn't anything different. Love story yes! This is a personal point of view, the trailer reminds me a lot of Varanam Aiyram.. Don't ask me why.. But it looks a lot like that. There was a Youtube Video with a yellow still which looks like a still right out of Alaipayuthe.
Well, let's wait and watch..
The movie releases on Feb 14th, and I'm watching it :D If nobody wants to come along, I've decided to catch the flick, even if it means watching the movie all alone, (sans the cola and popcorn).
Here is an after thought- Simbu in the trailer looks refreshingly different. He looks very smart. This is coming from a person who isn't a fan. This brings us to a point; I think everybody can look good, if they change the way they dress. Being a little presentable does make a difference to your personality! Now you know, why all those geeky senior guys in school, look damn smart in their suits ;-)
