Vettai - Movie Review

Saturday, January 14, 2012, 20:37 [IST]

N Lingusamy has adapted a tried and test formula for his latest movie Vettai. The director, in his usual way, has blended all the elements that make a movie entertaining. In fact, he takes to the era of 80s-90s film, where good having the last laugh against the evil. The filmmaker has also ensured to bring out the best from his actors – Aarya, Madhavan, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul.

We have seen many movies before, which shows an elder sibling bailing out his younger one from troubles but in Vettai, it is vice-versa. The introduction to the characters begin with the early days of Tirumurthi (Madhavan) and Gurumurthi (Aarya), where the former gets beaten-up by his acquaintance while flying a kite. In return, Tirumurthi, who leaves the place crying, makes his junior to seek revenge.

Having given enough hints about the nature of the siblings, the story then moves forward when Tirumurthi, by chance or may be by force, turns a cop. Lacking courage and strength, he manages to face the hurdles with the help of his brother. Being a kind of body double to his elder sibling, Guru successfully makes baddies Annachi (Ashutosh Rana) trembling in fear.

At this juncture, Tirumurthi ties the knot with Vasanthi (Sameera Reddy) and Gurumurthi falls in love with Jayanthi (Amala Paul). However, the villain discovers the truth and the situation changes drastically. The remaining part should be seen on-screen.

The story drives you on a familiar territory and one cannot expect too many surprises in the tale. But Lingusamy, who has mastered in this genre, does not allow the audience to lose their attention rather he makes them to watch the close-to-three hour film without getting bored. The film has each and every ingredient, which audience love to see on-screen. Good story, fights, comedies and songs that make the movie an interesting affair.

Aarya and Madhavan steal the complete show with their excellent performances. Here, we should praise Maddy for putting on some kilos and developing a paunch for his role of a laid-back cop. In fact, he amazingly brings the life to his role and make the viewers that his role is dozy in front of Aarya's character, which shines almost in every scene. Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul are good and they have justified their roles. However, Ashutosh Rana, despite getting enough scenes, fails to create fearsome atmosphere in the role of a villain. Rest others are okay.

Technically, Nirav Shah's cinematography is good, Yuvan Shankar Raja's music is okay and Silva's action stunts are commendable. Lingusamy has complete control over the subject and from his writing team, especially from the dialogue writer Brinda Sarathy, he has taken out best.

On the flip side, Lingusamy has committed a mistake by changing the attitude of Madhavan's character in the second half. It looks logic-less and not convincible for many. Putting aside this, there are quite a few minor errors, which go unnoticed.

Verdict: While Nanban has the elements to attract the urbanites and the youths, Vettai is a material, which will be liked by family and mass audience. It is a paisa-vasool movie, go for it.

Cast: Madhavan, Aarya, Sameera Reddy, Amala Paul, Ashutosh Rana and others
Director: N Lingusamy
Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Cinematography: Nirav Shah
Producers: N Subash Chandra Bose and Ronnie Screwvala

Posted by: - Vettai is no classic, but it is good fun

Vettai is no classic, but it is good fun

Lingusamy is one director who has the commercial formula down pat. And his latest, UTV's Vettai, is certainly among the most appealing mainstream fare he has produced so far.

Guru cajoles his brother into accepting a police post after their father's death and Thirumurthy, after much pleading, accepts the post along with the transfer originally assigned to his father.
The story is simple. Two brothers, Thirumurthy (played by R Madhavan and Guru (played by Arya) are thick as thieves. Only, Thirumurthy is pretty much a wimp and needs his younger brother to fight all his battles, from quarrelling during a kite-flying expedition during childhood right up to adulthood.
And this is where the problem starts. Thirumurthy, who quakes with fear even if someone sneezes, find himself caught in the toils of the local bigwig (introducing Ashutosh Rana) , who, of course, controls the area with his violent ways. Thirumurthy gets tangled up right away, and from then on, the story is a classic mixture of comedy and action, clearly taking plenty of leaves out of the K Bhagyaraj movie, Avasara Police 100.
Wimpy cop and courageous brother both run riot, leaving you in fits of laughter and touching you with great sibling sentiment. In the midst of all this are firebrand Vasanthi (Sameera Reddy)  and her sister Jayanthi (Amala Paul), who have no great role to play except pretty up the proceedings.
The first half, peppered with dialogues and humour, moves at a fantastic speed, making you wait on tenterhooks for the rest. The second half has its moments but is considerably slower. Mindless masala takes over soon, leading to the completely predictable bash-fest.
Madhavan and Arya have a ball playing brothers. The two are perfectly in sync, playing off against each other. You have to give Madhavan credit for taking up the role of a wimpy policeman who shakes in his shoes, even as he lets Arya play the hero, walking, talking and even fighting in style. The two hit it off perfectly; the only reason you can stomach some silliness in the screenplay is because of their comic timing.
Sameera Reddy is dashing, as always. Unfortunately, just when you think she is going to have something to do, her role dwindles into nothing. Amala Paul struts, pouts and hams to the hilt. Her role is shorter; so are her outfits.
Ashutosh Rana looks far more dignified than a rowdy should, and is as clueless as they come, letting both himself and his henchmen get beaten up.
Brinda Sarathy's dialogues strike the mark when it comes to comedy and make you squirm a bit when it comes to verbal punches.
Nirav Shah's camera work has little to do in an action entertainer like this. The look of the film is clean, neat, and focuses completely on the actors. Anthony's editing works, except for the last half hour, which could have done with some trimming.
Yuvan Shankar Raja's songs, sadly, do not hit the bull's-eye here, despite his past track record with the director.
Lingusamy's strength lies in packaging actors who play to their strengths, and mixing comedy and action into commercial fare. Logic obviously goes for a toss many times, but there is plenty of entertainment.
This diary of a wimpy policeman may not be a classic, but is fun nevertheless.

Vettai - A Hunt With Hints

IndiaGlitz  [Saturday, January 14, 2012]
After 'Run' almost ten years ago, director Lingusamy and Madhavan come together in a bid to repeat the magic, this time with added strength. They have young and bubbly Arya to their company.
A sibling story, 'Vettai' promises plenty of action and emotion. Lingusamy has ensured that his typical commercial elements find a place in 'Vettai' that proceeds in quick pace with enough twists and turns.
Firstly, the story is as old as the hill. Something we have seen since MGR days. But Lingusamy has given a fresh coat to it. There are host of characters and events unfold without a pause.
Gurumurthy (Madhavan) and Thirumurthy (Arya) are brothers who are contrast to each other. The former is shy and timid while the latter is bold and takes things by its horns.
Their father is a police officer. After his demise, a reluctant Guru is forced to take up the job. Thiru assures him all help. He even goes to the extent of working undercover and helps his brother emerge successful in fighting goons.
There is Vasanthi (Sameera), a talkative village belly who marries Guru. Her sister Jayanthi (Amala Paul) falls for Thiru and his mannerisms.
Meanwhile there is one Annachi (Asutosh Rana), an embodiment of evil in the town. He takes cudgels against Guru. Now Thiru steps in to set things right. At one point, coward Guru is prepared to face all challenges. How the two brothers join hands to eliminate Annachi forms the rest.
Madhavan is at his best playing a timid youth. He seems to share a good rapport working with Lingusamy and it is evident on screen. Arya is appealing. His vibrant energy adds strength to his character. At places, his character seems to resemble the one that he did in 'Boss Engira Baskaran'.
Amala Paul and Sameera Reddy share equal screen space.  Three cheers to Nirav Shah. The man behind the lens has done a commendable job. He has captured the village with all its beauty. The soft lens speaks poetry. Equally impressive are the stunt sequences captured by his camera. Yuvan Shankar Raja's songs are just adequate.
Produced by Thirupathi Brothers and released by UTV Motion Pictures, 'Vettai' is a cliched path traveled by Lingusamy. But the right packaging of commercial elements with apt star cast makes it count.
If you are ready to forget all logic and want to enjoy a masala movie this festive season, head on to 'Vettai'. -'Vettai' user review: Mass entertainer

'Vettai' user review: Mass entertainer

IndiaGlitz [Saturday, January 14, 2012]

'Vettai' is produced by UTV along with Thirupathi brothers (Lingusamy and his brothers) and directed by Lingusamy who has given some racy action films in the past (Run, Sandakozhi, Bheema, Paiya). If 'Paiya' set a trend in Tamil films for intense stunts and action sequences, 'Vettai' is an extension and lives up to the hype to a large extent because of the slick packaging and presentation. To add to it, here we have two heroes - one who is a cop and another who is a rowdy.
The movie starts of showing the childhood of brothers Thirumoorthy and Gurumoorthy (Madhavan and Arya respectively). Thiru is very innocent and afraid of everything where as Guru is plain opposite - he supports his brother and bashes up anyone who beats him. Their father (a police inspector) who brings them up passes away just before a transfer to Thoothukudi district and the job falls in the hands of Thirumoorthy. The brothers shift base to Thoothukudi which leads to encounters with the Villain (Ashutosh Rana) and his gang. They decide to clean up the system - while Guru bashes all goondas in his brothers identity, Thiru takes the entire credit and survives as a police sub-inspector.
Meanwhile they also meet the heroines Vasanthi (Sameera Reddy) and Jayanthi (Amala Paul) who are sisters. A marriage proposal comes for Thiru from Vasanthi's house and they get married and simultaneously love blossoms between Guru and Jayanthi as well. Further turn of incidents result in Thiru getting bashed up by the goondas after they realize the mistaken identity. How Guru motivates Thiru to become a brave police and together they destroy the gang forms the rest of the film.
The rocking chemistry between Arya and Madhavan is one of the strengths of the film. They look charismatic and set the screen on fire in all departments be it action, comedy, romance.  Madhavan looks little plump but it goes well with the character. Arya has a similar "vetti payan" character which he did in several films earlier. However, he excels in the action sequences and keeps the audience engaged with witty one-liners. He also has extended romantic scenes with Amala Paul.  Both Sameera and Amala have been given some significance in the screenplay and they make good use of it. While Sameera has more of the dialogues, Amala Paul adds glamour to the proceedings. Ashutosh Rana does the villain role with ease and other supporting actors like Thambi Ramaiah, Nasar have done their part well.
Nirav Shah's cinematography is vibrant and captures the action sequences superbly. Yuvan's background score is racy and energizes the film. The director gives a rocking intro to both Madhavan and Arya with the "Dhum Dhum" song and an even more interesting number "Thaiya Thakka" for the sister's introduction which is choreographed superbly. "Paparappa" song is peppy. The songs are shot in typical Lingusamy style (Thanjavur streets, girls wearing "Dhavani" walking around et al) and hence look very similar to some of his earlier films like "Run" and "Sandakozhi".
When you make a film only for the masses it's very hard to get away from illogical sequences. "Vettai" too has its share of scenes like the train sequence just after the interval, Sameera not knowing what happened to her husband for 3 days, the scenes between the American Mapillai and Arya, etc. which could have been avoided or trimmed.
The story is wafer thin and can be similar to any twin brother stories basis mistaken identities. But, Lingusamy excels again with his taut screenplay, thrilling action sequences laced with comedy which can be enjoyed by all. The scene where the villain kidnaps Arya because of the mistaken identity is a typical example. The first half is crisp and races ahead while the second half drags a bit and could have been trimmed to make it even racier.
Overall, if you can forget logic and if you want to watch a typical commercial film with mass elements, then 'Vettai' will definitely exceed your expectations.

By Moviebuzz
Lingusamy’s Vettai is a racy mass entertainer with all the ingredients mixed in the right proposition. No doubt that the director understands the pulse of the common man and has beautifully packaged it with all the essential commercial elements to suit the taste of the masses.
The multi starrer is targeted at audiences who want to have a great time without thinking too hard and the film weaves a spell on the viewer with some electrifying action scenes and comedy. The story is wafer-thin but it is the characterisation which guarantees maximum entertainment.
Gurumurthy (Madhavan) and Thirumurthy (Arya) are siblings who bond from childhood and care for each other. Their father is a police officer in Thuthukudi. The brothers are different as chalk and cheese in their approach, attitude and body language. Guru is yellow livered coward who always lives in fear, while Thiru is fearless and aggressive in nature.
In contrast, there are two sisters Vasanthi (Sameera Reddy) - fiery and street smart and Jayanthi (Amala Paul) a bubbly girl who live with their granny. Guru marries Vasanthi and in the process, Thiru falls in love with Jayanthi.
Meanwhile, after the death of their father, Guru joins the police force on Thiru’s insistence. Guru the coward aided by his dare devil younger brother Thiru, soon locks horns with the mobsters Annachi (Ashutosh Rana), Suruli (Srijith Ravi) and Mari (Muthukumar). The brothers try to clean up the city of the scum’s of the earth, which leads to the climax.
The director was clear from the beginning that it is a fun ride. And he has provided Vettai as the perfect hunt for the festival audiences with stars, glam factor, action, humour and songs in the right mix. The commercial format has also been reworked to avoid heavy dose of sentiments or silly stereotypes in the story.
It’s difficult to pin point, which shines more in the film, as everybody was given a well-defined character that fitted their age and body languages. The rapier –sharp synergy between the lead actors brings to life the narrative. But there some very nice moments which stand out especially the scene in which Madhavan gets up from the wheelchair and jumps the fence to save his brother.
Hats off to Madhavan, for accepting the role of a coward with his unrivalled comic timing, as the audiences root for him. It is Sameera best ever role after Vaaranam Aayiram and she has done full justice to it. For a change her lip sync and Chinmayi’s dubbing brings out the fiery nature of the character.
Amala Paul is lovely to look at and her feisty performance proves that a star is born. The film is a showcase not so much for Arya’s acting, but for his scorching screen-presence, action hero image and humour. Ashutosh Rana is good.
On the downside, the American Maapillai scenes looks forced and thrust into the narrative. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music is peppy and adds to the mood of the film. The opening song Tham, Tham.. and Kattipettai, Kattipettai… are hummable.
Count among other things Nirav Shah’s camerawork, especially his song picturisation and top angle shots which makes action and song sequences look vibrant. Anthony’s editing and Rajeevan’s art work makes the film technically sound.
On the whole, popcorn entertainers are best enjoyed when they aren't overanalyzed, and Vettai is no exception. It’s a delicious one-time watch for this Pongal season.

Lingusamy who has rocked the audience with his racy way of storytelling has once again won the race through Vettai starring Madhavan, Arya, Sameera Reddy, Amala Paul in the lead roles. His last release is Paiyaa with Karthi and Tamanna in the lead roles. The film went on to become a big hit, that recently the Hindi remake rights are bought by a leading producer.

Check out the Tamil Movie Review - 'Vettai'

Listen Review:


The film is about two brothers Thirumurthi(Madhavan) and Gurumurthi(Arya) who share a great bond right from childhood with a police family background in Thoothukudi. While Thiru is a innocent boy who grows up in the same way whereas Guru is the exact opposite, He is bold and ready to clash with anyone that comes in his brother's way. They grow up in the same manner till the later days too.

On the other side it is Vasanthi(Sameera Reddy) and Jayanthi(Amala Paul) who are born as sisters who remains naughty at all times. At one point these two brothers and sisters clash each other at funny circumstances and love blossoms between them.

There enters the Villian Ashutosh Rana and his gang who threatens the people of thoothukudi in every manner. At this point Thiru was given the responsibility to become the next Police officer on the lines of his father and grandfather. When the whole police department which includes Naseerand Thambi Ramaiah in special roles who are expecting Thiru to be a strict and bold person, they soon find out that he is fearful and calm natured.

Thirumurthi ties knot with Vasanthi at one point but troubles follow them so, Arya comes with a plan to switch sides without anyone's notice. Soon the Villian group finds out this and smashesGuru at one stage. Now it is upto Thiru whether to become strong or stay weak which forms the rest of the climax.


Lingusamy has yet once again proved that he is a director who can give a high action oriented film with full of Commercial values like his earlier ventures, especially adding a Mass scene ofAjith's Mankatha at the right place. Madhavan as the innocent brother and police officer steals the show with his screen presence with Sameera Reddy, whereas Arya as the angry young man gives an high action entertainment to the audience. Amala Paul with her cute looks and romance turns up your body heat.

Also Naseer and Thambi Ramaiah has did their roles with perfection. Ashutosh Rana andMuthukumar the one who was seen as the elder brother of Nani in Veppam remains as the same gangsters of action films. Raja Sundaram appears in a cameo role and does his part well.


Nirav Shah has scored big time with his Cinematography with rich visuals remains as the backbone of the film's narration. Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja has been a highlight with rocking Bgms all over. While Editing by Antony gives a racy and crisp feel to the viewers.

Even though the film carries 5 songs, the film maintains the tempo till the end.


Madhavan's comeback will be Vettai for sure. The charming actor who was missing in Tamil cinema's for a long period of time is back with a bang.  Arya as the brother of Madhavan suits the character without any flaws and shares equal importance. Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul fill glamour to this high end action film.

Vettai movie review

Review by : Behindwoods Review Board 
Starring: Madhavan, Arya, Sameera Reddy, Amala Paul Direction: N. LingusamyMusic: Yuvan Shankar RajaProduction: Thirupathi Brothers

Director Lingusamy who is known for delivering wholesome commercial entertainers treads again in his comfort zone presenting this year’s Pongal offering Vettai with his Run hero Madhavan along with Arya, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul.
Thambi Udayaan Padaikku Anjaan is the adage around which Lingusamy spins his tale with the quintessential elements of a mainstream commercial fare viz. sentiment, romance, humor, action and music. Lingusamy delectably mounts his first half that is replete with enjoyable screenplay. Brinda Sarathy comes to his aid with witty dialogues embellishing the fare. The comic timing of the lead stars is also good enough to bring out this effect.
The Adonis Arya with his impish grin steals the show with his charming antics and the sequences when he is trying to drive away the foreign Maappillai or help out his meek brother or tease Amala with his ‘thanks’ are simply enjoyable. For Maddy, his innocent face aids the characterization of Thirumoorthy very well. His expressions on being appreciated for his ‘brave act’ by Nasser and later on a proud look on being approached by Sameera for Amala’s wedding with Arya are just a few examples. Amala Paul looks fresh and appears to have enjoyed playing her role. Sameera impresses as the talkative bold elder sister.
The scene when Sameera cajoles Arya to marry her sister when the rest of them appear not so interested and the one when Amala realizes why she was being thanked by Arya when he came to her house are delightful. Mankatha Ajith scene sends the audience into frenzy and the apt shot of Jiiva supposedly looking at Arya in action is also well done.
Nasser’s cameo is enjoyable. Even if Thambi Ramiah mouths a serious dialogue, it brings the roof down and the actor makes his presence felt. Villain Ashutosh Rana does what all the villains in a commercial fare do and his costumes too are chic, thanks to costumer Seenu and Deepali Noor. The villains caricatured with loud voices, stale punch dialogs, long hair and unkempt beard looks outdated.
Technically, Vettai has Nirav Shah’s strong backing in the camera department and the talented lensman has not let down Lingusamy. His visuals bring out the mood perfectly and the lighting during the railway track scene when Arya rescues Maddy is a small example. Yuvan’s scores are just about average and the BGM leaves a lot to be desired. Fight choreographer has chartered some interesting action moves pumping adrenalin.  
The major positive factor for Vettai is its light hearted humor which is something fresh and enjoyable sans double entendres. As long as the film travels on this route, it is enjoyable but when it attempts seriousness, that’s when it falters evoking unintentional humor jeering the intended effect, the best example is when Maddy tries to get up from his wheel chair.
In the second half, when the film attempts to shift to a serious gear with clichéd punch dialogues, lengthy action sequences, the fare becomes predictable and the engaging factor starts going south and restlessness settles in.
Summing up, Vettai is a commercial fare that works in the humor, action and romance department but not when it is attempting a serious tone.
Verdict: Light hearted film for the holiday season

Story: Thirumurthy (Madhavan), who is scared of any sort of violence, is tricked by younger brother Gurumurthy (Arya) into taking up the job of a sub-inspector after their father dies in harness. 

After Thiru is unwittingly put in the line of fire at his first posting in Thoothukudi, Guru arrives to help him handle the various goons that inhabit the port city and run various illegal operations. Thiru becomes the cynosure of all eyes and rises in stature after Guru does all the grunt work for him, but it is only a matter of time before Annachi (Ashutosh Rana) finds out the truth about the brothers and unleashes all his henchmen at them. 

Movie Review: It is festival time and the season for bonding. In keeping with the mood, Thiru and Guru form a band of brothers that bonds with a band of sisters comprising Vasanthi (Sameera Reddy) and Jayanthi (Amala Paul). It is this bonding that works for the movie, and helps maintain audience interest.

In his second consecutive release in Tamil after "Manmadhan Ambu" in 2010, Madhavan displays an uncanny talent for comedy. He is perfect as the scared cat Thiru, who would prefer to remain in the background rather than take on the criminals but revels in the plaudits that come his way thanks to the hard work done by his sibling. Though there is nothing new in the scheme of things, the film remains engaging till this point and moves into mediocre territory once the character makes a U-turn from his timid behaviour.

Arya plays Guru with nonchalance, delivering one-liners and dispensing beatings with the same demeanor. Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul do a good job as sisters-in-arms. Another Bollywood villain Ashutosh Rana marks his Tamil debut in a Lingusamy film after Atul Kulkarni in "Run" and Milind Soman in "Paiyya", and thankfully lets his menacing eyes do the talking rather than rave and rant like regular Kollywood villains.

Lingusamy does a good job in fleshing out the sparring of Arya and Sameera, with the former obviously enjoying his bad boy act. Though there is nothing new in terms of the story or screenplay, the movie is a fun ride as long as it lasts.

v3ஒளிப்பதிவு நிரவ்ஷாவாம். அவரோட கடைசி அஸிஸ்டெண்ட் செய்த படமாயிருக்கும்னு தோணுது. கமலா தியேட்டரில் கிரேடிங் செய்யாத ப்ரிண்டைக் கொடுத்திட்டாங்க போலருக்கு. இல்ல மொத்த படமே அந்த லட்சணம்தானான்னு தெரியல.. படு டல்லடிக்குது. மீசிக் யுவன் சங்கர் ராஜாவாம். பப்பபாபா பாட்டு யுடூயுபுல இருந்த அளவுக்கு கூட பெப்பியா இல்லை. ரிரிக்கார்டிங் படு கொடுமை. இதுவும் அவரோட கடைசி அஸிஸ்டெண்ட் போட்டுக் கொடுத்திருபாரோ.. ?
v4(மேலே உள்ள ரெண்டு ஸ்டில்களுக்கு எவ்வளவோ மெனக்கெட்டிருக்காங்களோ.. அந்த அளவுக்குக்கூட கதைங்கிற ஒரு விஷயத்துக்கு மெனக்கெடல. முடிஞ்சா ஆறு வித்யாசம் கண்டு பிடிங்க பாக்கலாம் இந்த படங்கள்ல..)

எழுதி இயக்கியவர் லிங்குசாமியாம். ரெண்டு ஹீரோ கால்ஷீட் கிடைச்சாச்சு. ரெண்டு பேருக்கும் முக்யத்துவம் உள்ள கதை வேண்டும். அதாவது அவருக்கு ஒரு ஹீரோயின்னா, இவருக்கு ஒரு ஹீரோயின், அவர் விரர்ன்னா, இவருக்கும் கடைசியில வீரம் வரணும். அவருக்கு ரெண்டு பைட்டுன்னா, இவருக்கும் ரெண்டு பைட்டு, போனா போவட்டும்னு ஒரு பாட்டு எக்ஸ்ட்ராவா ஆர்யாவுக்கு கொடுத்துருவோம். அப்புறம் லிப் டு லிப் கிஸ் சீன் இருக்கே.. அட அட அட.. என்னாமா கொடுக்கிறாய்ங்கடா.. அடகிரகமே.. முடியலை.. பல்லு தேய்க்காதவனை முத்தம் கொடுக்கிறா மாதிரி மூச்சிய வச்சிட்டு ஸ்ஸுபா.. படம் பழைய எம்.ஜி.ஆர் படங்களின் ஸ்பூப்புன்னு முன்னாடியே சொல்லியிருந்தா ஒரு மாதிரி ப்ரிபேர் ஆகி வந்திருப்போமில்ல. வர்ற ஒவ்வொரு சீனையும், சந்தோஷமா ரசிச்சு செம்மயா கிண்டல் பண்ணியிருக்கீங்கன்னு கைதட்டி ரசிச்சிருப்போமில்ல. அதிலேயும் அண்ணனை நடக்க வைக்க தம்பி அடிவாங்குற சீன் இருக்கே.. ஆ…ஆஆஆஆஆஆஆ.. முடியல.. கண்ணுல தண்ணி முட்டிட்டு வருது. லாஜிக்குன்கிற ஒரு வஸ்துவை எங்க தேடினாலும் கிடைக்காது. இன்னும் எத்தனை நாளைக்குத்தான் ‘தேரடி வீதியில் தேவத வந்தா பாட்டு மாதிரி பாட்டை எடுத்திட்டு இருப்பீங்க. எனக்கே ஷட்டரான்னு மாதவன் சொல்லும் போது தியேட்டர்ல கை தட்டுவாங்கன்னு நீங்க நினைச்சது புரியுது. ஆனால் விவேக் சொன்னாக்கூட சிரிக்கிற நிலையில்லாத அளவுக்கு பழசாயிருச்சுன்னு எப்படி உங்களுக்கோ, உங்க டீமுக்கோ தெரியாமா போயிருச்சு. புருஷனுக்கு ரெண்டு காலும் விளங்காம் போற அளவுக்கு அடிபட்டிருக்குமாம். வீட்டுல யாருக்குமே தெரியாதாம். அடுத்த சீன்ல வீட்டுல பொண்டாட்டி பாத்துட்டு “என்ன ஆச்சு? மூணு நாளா எதுவும் சொல்லலைன்னு” டயலாக் வச்சிட்டா சரியாயிருச்சாம். கொஞ்சமாவது படம் பாக்குறவனை மதிங்க சார். எது   எப்படியோ.. பதினெட்டு கோடிக்கு  படத்தை தலையில கட்டியாச்சு. இனி யுடிவி பாடு நமக்கென்ன.. இந்த மாதிரியே ஆர்டிஸ்ட் காம்பினேஷனை மட்டுமே வைத்து படமெடுத்த கார்பரேட் கம்பெனிகளின் நிலையைப் பற்றி இதற்கு முன் இதே நிலையில் படமெடுத்த கார்பரேட் கம்பெனிகளின் நிலையை பார்த்து தெரிந்து கொள்ளலாம்.

ஒரு படம் நல்லாருக்கா இல்லையாங்கிறதை தியேட்டர் கேண்டீன்ல ஆகிற வியாபாரத்தை வச்சி சொல்லிரலாம்னு என் நண்பர் சிவகுமார் சொல்லுவாரு. படம் சூப்பரா இருந்தா கையில் இருக்கும் காசை சந்தோஷமா செலவு பண்ணுவாங்களாம். மொக்கையா இருந்தா நிச்சயம் வியாபாரம் குறைவாகவும், நிச்சயம் ஒரு சண்டை அன்னைக்கு நடந்தே தீரும் என்றும் சொல்வார். சைக்காலஜி.
