A Movie With A Difference

I went for a Tamil movie yesterday - Unnai Pol Oruvan (A Common Man)

I am not really a big fan of Kamal Hassan, so I never had any plans to go for the movie.
However everyone who went for the movie came back with good reviews, so I HAD to check it out.

It was quite a good movie, really.

Something different.
Something you wouldn't expect from a Tamil movie.

There were no songs where people will be running around trees.
There were no fight scenes where 1 person can beat up 10 otherJustify Fulls.
There wasn't even a heroine!

The movie was basically about a guy who plants 5 bombs in 5 different places and demands the release of 4 terrorists. The bulk of the movie is about the negotiation between the guy and the police and how the police try to find out who this guy is.

A nice movie, one worth watching.

Unfortunately, there still are Indians out there who want to see a TAMIL movie when they go for a Tamil movie - which means they want to see songs, and sexy heroines, and unbelievable fight scenes and superheros who can fly.

So, I predict that this movie won't make as much money as it should.


p/s I would recommend anyone who can understand Tamil to go for the movie. For those who don't, make sure they have subtitle, because I don't think the one I watched had subtitles for the whole movie.
