So the husband dragged me to watch ‘Adurs’. With so much to do and wrap up, no idea why I allowed this to happen. Both of us came back with a slight headache. The last statement need not necessarily reflect my opinion of the movie.
My two cents:
- The movie was not worth $12/pop.It’s a DVD movie.
- I knew the story in the first scene and then kept anticipating the next. Bad for my brain.
- NTR jr is a flexible but boring dancer. He bends like the straw, but it’s the same straw and the same bends. After a while one is left with a crooked and slightly stiff neck.
- Nayantara has become half her size, and she has managed to continue to look hot. She can’t do a damn move except for shake that waist area. It gets boring. Even the husband said so, and he likes the girl.
- The other girl’s alright, though there’s something amiss. Her eyes or something. Great body, but the eyes, they lack the sparkle.
- NTR jr cannot do bram-speak. Bram-speak is not just using choice ‘abusive’ words. There’s a music to it. It’s heavenly to the ears despite whatever the content of the speech. When done right, there’s a laughter to it, suitable enough to hold your sides and laugh. Similar to Kamal in MMKR and stuff (That link is unrelated, I just like that scene a lot). Then again, maybe am comparing apples to oranges.
- Nassar’s of course losing it to go accept such itty bitty roles.
- Sankarabharanam Rajyalakshmi plays mom. As per the rules of all returning yester-years heroines, she’s suitably rotund.
- Brahmanandam is the star and the hero of the movie. The last hour or so despite the fights and twists and hopeful creative confusion he completely steals the thunder with his dialog delivery. I suspect he writes his own lines, or improvs appropriately. The guy’s an unbelievable natural.
- Too many songs, and not a single madisaar maami one. Very disappointed.
- Too many babies, babies in prams, toddlers running around, and small talk during the show at the theaters. Demands a separate post in complete vigor on the rules for (parents) watching movies at the cinemas, that am itching to get to.
