Pachaikkili Muthucharam

  • Kaakka Kaakka was the first Tamil movie which has the leading lady say to the hero "I want to make love to you". Here it's even better and GM goes further Smile The way he has handled "difficult" and delicate scenes like Andrea not expressing interest for love-making deserves a mention. Especially the line Sharath says "iyalba thaana nadakka vendiya vishayam unakku celebration-a poiduchu?!"
  • Not a bad attempt at all. The execution could have been much better, though. [Remakes/Adaptaions aren't necessarily bad]
  • Harris Jayaraj should be banned from scoring BGM's. [In one scene where Jo and Sharath share an intimate moment, the BGM piece he comes up with can best be described either as a "ezhavu" music or some national integration theme music from DD]
  • Sharath isn't as bad as one would have feared
  • What the hell was the climax all about? Gautham sure has a finishing problem.
  • Sharath SIM-card a maathirukkalaam
  • Deja vu with the villains and Gautham's voice
  • Some scenes lack spontaneity and seem "staged" - Do the problems faced in the production of VV show in the output of this film?


  • Theater poi paakalama venamaannu till thinking :)
    Gm says, he made the script for Thalaivar ! Wonder how it would have turned out, if Kamal had taken up the project.
    P.S: Thanks for adding me to your blog roll A_A !

  • Atlast someone talk about the BGM in this movie. Competing for the worst ever did anyone noticed how manytimes un siripinil comes as a BGM. And Andrea is the miscast of the millennium.

    On the flip side,VV would've turned up like this if not for Kamal. It shows nothing but the audacity of Gautham to think he can pull this off with Sharath.

    Dear friends,

    Bengaloorulla ivainga orture thaangala - Since Feb 5th no Tamizh movies. PKMC not screened even in any area theatres. Looks like Amir's movie has been released as well. Ovvoru manushanukkum oru breaking point undu, as the great Aandavar said in Kurudhi punal - yesterday I brought home a Srikanth movie in desparation, only to wrench the VCD along with the drive a few minutes into the movie. Yesterday I watched a crappy Hindi movie. Definite breaking point vandudichu.Kindly add Vidya Balan to the list of things to be banned along with Harris' BGM.

  • 2ndreview,
    Yes, but i would say he had the audacity to think of casting Aandavar in this movie!

    "It shows nothing but the audacity of Gautham to think he can pull this off with Sharath"
    He almost does and if the movie doesn't make its mark, Sharath is hardly to blame

    "edhavadhu sey Arjun, edhavadhu sey!"
    Enna seyyardhu, coolie-a vandhuttom, adithaan aganum...

    Don't worry, you aren't missing much not watching PKMC. porumaya paathukkalaam.
    When do you think they'll lift the ban on Tamil films?
    Someone i know was watching a new Tamil movie in Balaji theatre and in the middle of it, rioters came in and chased everyone away...

    Don't worry, Vidya Balan is in my hit list. Matter of time....

  • A_A,the one reason why Sir rejected the film,am asking you becos you have seen PKMC.

    Also,there is no chance of the ban on Tamil movies/channels being lifted in the near future.

    Want to watch Paruthi........,Mozhi&PKMC very badly :(

  • cinefan,
    1. It doesn't require Aandavar.
    2. Probably he wouldn't have been very optimistic abt it in the BO

    Mozhi, PV me too.. probably in a week..
    Ungalukku VCD dhaan pola irukku :(
