Sivaji - FIRST REVIEW ON NET!!

Jus back after watching Sivaji in Singapore FDFS at GV Yishun.

Awesome performance by Rajini. Looking younger by decades as though travelled by a time machine, Superstar looks ravishing and has given out a spell binding performance. In his Motta role, he even makes us forget the La ka la ka la ka...... He is an epitome of style and his walks and his mannerisms have been captured in a fan like style by Shankar. Shankar is a master in bringing out social issues through his script and packaging it in a commercial way. The message in the movie and the final slides on the screen as names roll by is something every Indian would dream for.

The songs picturisation has always been Shankar's forte and he proves that again. Ballelakka has Nayantara looking soooo hot and the scenes are so pleasing to the eyes. Sahara and the glass tower looks ravishing and Shreya is SUPER DUPER HOT in Vaaji Vaaji song. Athiradee and Style song is every RAJINI fan's dream come true. Wonderful use of CG in both the songs. Shankar or ARR has been so clever in using the Sega Fightaa song -- Hats off

Rahman's songs have already stuck on to the top of the charts and would sure stay on for some more time with the visuals out now. He has done a wonderful work with the BGM and esp Blaaze proves why he is Rahman's favorite. The BGM music which resembles one of the songs is too good to hear.
Sujatha's dialogues is another strength to the movie. Scene where Suman makes fun of Rajini is another gem by Sujatha. Magic with little words and its Sujatha for you.


Heroines in Rajini and Shankar movies have always been mostly for glamour. Here too Shreya fits the bill perfectly and does a fantastic job at that. In addition she does have some scenes to prove her acting and she does a good job. Vivek's rockbottom career is going to be revived with this movie where he is there with Rajini in most of the scenes. Office Room comedy scenes and La Ka La Ka scenes STAND OUT!! still laughing thinking about them. .... He even has a couple of punch dialogues


Suman has been a revelation in terms of Villain. Speaking fewer words and with no over the board shouting, he has done a wonderful job and looks menacing. The confrontation scenes b/w Rajini and Suman are a highlight of the movie.


Style song and Adhiradee song graphics are top class (Both are fantasy songs and they sure have unrealistic sequences which is why you have CG in the first place) Other than that, not much of CG in the movie.


As for the minus points in the movie, there is one scene with Shreya and train which is kinda unbelievable. There are slides which are put as the names roll by and they ought to have been included before that coz some people may miss that.


In Singapore theatre we had atleast 20% of crowd as women and everyone enjoyed the movie thoroughly. Throughout the first half and almost half of second half (not sequentially) it was sprinkled with lots of humour ala Rajini Style. Sivaji -- Pera ketta chumma Adhirudhilla........

oh yes, i TOTALLY agree - the only scene unbelievable was the Shreya and train sequence...

other than that, i really felt that rajini was like a toddler - almost shreya's baby.
