Movie Review - Unnale Unnale

This is in response to some of those reviewers who have praised Unnale Unnale... Well let me give yo ua few more reasons to praise the movie.

Tanisha... she has completely forgotten the movie was Thamizh and lip synchs for French dialogues. She introduces herself with... "Enakku friends na romba pidikkum...". Reminds me of the hordes of male profiles in TamiMatrimony that claim "They like having fun". Hehehe.. I always would suggest that they extend that nugget with,"I like to be happy but don't mistake me... I am not gay". It is sure to get everyone's attention.

How is it that everyone seems connected to every other person in the movie? So hero falls in love with a girl, who is suspicious of him and breaks off, So he goes to the same obscure Australian city as she lives, without knowing about it. So he sits next to a girl who just happens to go to the same city in the same continent... AND who is the room mate/friend of his old flame. I expected to even see the air hostess in the Australian flight to appear as one of their friends in the coffee shop.

The coffee shop owner!!! That irritating guy with thick glasses from Ullam Ketkume, is everywhere. He suddenly appears on both sides of the love story and gets stuck like fast drying cow dung. He is a hard to remove smear. He is a totally unnecessary character in an otherwise also unnecessary movie. The dialogues... apparently they were very good because quite a lot of youth in the theatre associated themselves with it. "Ponnunga paatha Just looking.. Naanga paatha alayaroma ?".. If that was the basis for the tiffs of 'lovers'... I urge you guys... please turn away... or better stil, turn gay. There is no reason to continue with your present relationship.

The story could be writen on the back of a postage stamp. It is not worth mentioning in any review. The story is so insipid that the director had to use 4 songs as a filler during the second half.

The hero looks and laughs like he has the answer to all relationship questions, but is eternally confused between the two girls. Sada looks like his elder sister when she wears make up. Tanisha as the bubbly open minded alternative to the morose suspiciuos Sada is a movie cliche in any language and can be comfortably ignored. The Ulam Ketkumey guy has to be murdered. The rest of the cast is better swept under the carpet. Shameful.

The music is the saving grace. So if at all you want to spend money or time on the movie, download the songs from Tamilbeat. It takes 5 minutes and it gives you twice as much fun.
