Byprinciple, I stopped writing movie reviews. No. Nothing against reviews/blogswhich carry movie reviews. Earlier, I wrote reviews [only] when I dint have anycontent to fill my blogs. So, personally, I feel that movie reviews are fillersused to keep the blog up and running. Itried not to write after watching The Dirty Picture. I failed. I resisted theurge to write a review after watching Kahaani. But I couldn’t do it afterwatching 3. Now,is it such a nice movie? Doread on. If you read till the end, despite the spoilers you’re gonna thank me. Whenthe cast and crew of the film carries names like Shruti Haasan, Dhanush,Aishwarya R Dhanush and the new-kid-in-the-block Anirudh, it’s only fair toexpect a decent effort from them. After all, they’ve had better exposure tocinema than any other beginners/newbies. Given the filmy background and all. But they have failed. Failed bigtime. What they have delivered is a half-baked, ridiculous movie devoid of anylogic whatsoever. Ifyou let me, I can go on and on pointing out the flaws. I’ll try to keep it asap[As Simple as possible] ;-) Fixingbroken cycle chains will not get you girls. Stop sending wrong signals people. And my dearmachans, if you fix a broken chain you’ll not get that girl. Rather, you’llonly get your hands soiled. Ionce carried[forced to carry] the bicycles of two of my tuition mates across the railway crossing using thefoot-over bridge. Nothing happened. Not that I was expecting anything tohappen. Avlo worth’u illa. But then, Nothing happened. PERIOD. Andfollowing a girl till she breaks – so touché. Marriagesare costly but getting married in a bar? You just went overboard man. Yourparents are cool enough to let you marry the girl you love without creatingdrama. They even got you a posh apartment but what’s the need to get married inthe bar huh? Tell me. That too, with the worst background song. Keralastyle Namboodhri and a well-dressed little girl appearing as hallucinatedimages only to Dhanush – Man I laughed so hard looking at images flashing onscreen. Nice touch eh? ;-) It was like watching a b-grade Tamil soap serial. Dhanushkicks his pet dog so hard that it dies an instant death. Of all the things, whykill a dog? That too not just any stray dog. Costly, pavam looking, pug. Andof all fuck ups this one bags the crown. Context:Dhanush learns from his friend about his mental/bi-polar/spilt personalitydisorder. He is afraid that he might hurt Janani even without his knowledge. Sowhat he does? He plans a trip to sabari mala. He wears that sacred malai and hecomes home only to piss off Janani. Out of nowhere, he starts singing “PO NEEPO” Hello.!What’s this man? Where did this come from? Inthe words of his highness Chandler Bing, “Could it be any worse?”. AndDear Sruthi, honey, you have to work on your lip-sync and accent. Don’t get mewrong but when you cry, I feel like somebody is scratching a steel plate withtheir finger nails. Remember that hair tugging, teeth gritting feeling? Yeah!Same to same. AndDear Dhanush, one more psycho movie. That is all you have before you getbranded as agmark psycho actor. Just take a look at the movies you have actedso far. You are at your best when you look all chery and galeej on screen.Polladhavan, Aadukalam, Pudupettai. Verdict:3 is one of those movies which makes you feel that should have got shelved soonafter the audio release. It leaves you with such a sore after taste that youwill definitely think twice before attempting to watch another movie from thisdirector/actor combo. Once bitten twice shy. Savinggrace: Songs + Siva Karthikeyan + Interiors of the posh flat. It was louly.
LessonsLearnt: Never, ever tell the truth to your friend even if he’s sick. Otherwise,you might end up with severe internal/external hemorrhage . Watchout for this killer combo. Stay away.
Wantedto write a full blown review. Lost interest half way through and I'm way too sleepy. I travelled 20odd kms in scorching heat + petrol 100 rs + not-so-comfortable-seats + 85 rsticket – all this for this movie ah?
NOT WORTH IT....!
