‘I’ movie grand premiere in Malaysia was held in GSC Pavillion on 13th Jan and the function was graced by Tamil movie actor Prithiviraj or famously-known as Babloo with scores of local celebrities and artistes.
To say about the movie in one liner: ‘Anniyan Part 2′ – Not just because the same director-actor team but also the storylines that brought in the same subject – revenge which seems a favourite and repetitive choice for the director.
Compared to his previous work on ‘Enthiran’,this movie clearly lacks the substance for the director to hold the script tight from start to end.The first half was too much spent on the love affair between the lead actors which swayed little the thrill of the main plot and storyline.
Apart from Vikram’s powerful and versatile performances,Amy Jackson stands out next as she delivered a decent performance as the hero’s love interest.Credit to the makeup department who manages to brings out the best out of her in this movie.Although the movie carried thriller tagline,minor comic relief was provided by Santhanam with cameo appearance by Power Star.Besides the two lead actors,the next best thing about the movie is the songs by Oscar winner A.R.Rahman who delivered chart-toppers tunes but again,it was a minor flak that the songs did not fit in enough into the already-fragile screenplay.
The fighting scenes was the biggest letdown as it was draggy and dull but cinematography by P.C Sreeram who captures beautiful sceneries in India and China was another plus-point.
Overall,the movie will be a satisfying affair for Vikram’s fans and also those who indulges in body-building.
