7Aam Arivu Movie Review: A colossal disappointment!

Suriya and Shruti Hassan’s film is fantastic but is let down by poor execution by director Murugadoss

At one point in Murugadoss’ ambitious Deepavali release 7Aam Arivu, Suriya and Shruti Haasan get into an autorickshaw in Chennai and the driver does the unthinkable. He flicks down the meter. In Chennai. An auto driver. It is at this point that you realise that Murugadoss is operating in the realm of pure fantasy. In terms of plotline, it is fantastic but is let down by poor execution. What could have been a great action thriller is reduced to a preachy, turgid, bloated bore in Murugadoss’ incapable hands. Perhaps it is because he didn’t have a storyline to borrow from as he did with Christopher and Jonathan Nolan’s Memento script for Ghajini.

The film begins 1600 years ago in Kanchipuram, part of the Pallava kingdom, where the ruler Bodhi Dharman (Suriya) is preparing to leave for China in order to stop a deadly disease originating there from reaching India. In China, the locals initially treat Bodhi Dharman with hostility, but this soon turns to respect when he concocts a cure for a disease that makes people break out in fatal suppurating sores. Respect turns to adulation when Bodhi Dharman singlehandedly displays an awesome range of martial arts in defeating a gang of bandits, his party trick being hypnotising them into turning on one another. Bodhi Dharman imparts his medicinal and martial arts wisdom to the Chinese, spends the rest of his days in the country and is interred there upon his death.

Back in the present day, the Chinese government has hatched a dastardly plot to destabilise India. They send Dong Lee (Vietnamese martial arts star Johnny Nguyen) to spread the ancient 1600-year-old virus in India and then have the upper hand when India begs them for the cure, something that only the Chinese have thanks to Bodhi Dharman. The only person who can stop them is genetic engineer Subha Sreenivasan (Haasan) who has access to Bodhi Dharman’s DNA, which when matched with those of his descendant Aravind (Suirya again) will create the only person who can foil Lee.

It is here that the film goes off the rails and never recovers. For, logically as every scientist does, Subha pretends to fall in love with Aravind, who for some reason is a circus worker, so that she can inveigle him into helping with her research. What follows is a love story spanning an hour of screen time, including three songs, intercut with pointless and pedantic explanations of the DNA matching process. Haasan supposedly plays a native medicine doctor’s daughter from Thanjavur, but her Tamil accent and diction sounds like she’s just jetted in from another planet, struggling as she does with complicated polysyllabic words.

This being a Deepavali release starring Suriya, one would expect him to feature in a crowd-pleasing larger than life role. Though the actor tries gamely enough and is always a pleasure to watch, he is let down by a script that curiously has him being reactive rather than proactive for the entire middle stretch of the film. When he finally does face off to Lee after spending much of the film running away from him, the resulting encounter is rather tame. And when Murugadoss adds in liberal doses of Tamil jingoism and bemoans India’s brain drain to the West continuously, the film descends into the realm of a ‘message movie’ something that director Shankar (Sivaji, Endhiran) does far better. Pity. There were the makings of a good commercial film in there somewhere.

MOVIE STILLS: 7Aam ArivuSubscribe to me on YouTube

  • surya fan

    suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuupppppeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrbbbbbbbbb FLOP BY SURYA.

    • Vijay

      Bakwas review , the movie is not that bad, Infact I appreciate director for making such a movie.Like any other movie its got few minus points and more pluses. its a good movie watched in australia, gonna watch it once again. Surya’s performance superb, excellent movie

  • Santhosh

    Horrible Comments… and totally crap ones too,…. infact apart from the slow movement in the first half the movie scored everywhere else… actually the plot was plugged in from all sides as much as possible to avoid loop holes or blunders,… Its a movie afterall so cant complain much on the exaggerated scenes relating to Genetics… Am actually dissapointed with this article and not teh movie…!!!

    • 7am was amazing

      Completly agree with you. I thought it was an amazing movie and this review fails to do justice to it.

      • gautum

        only concept is nice but no good screeenplay,expectations are waste on 7ariu..waste,suriya effort in all flims is six pack..

  • loved it

    AMAZING MOVIE. I definitely don’t agree with the review. Yes it was quite long but definitely worth a worth. Surya’s acting was mindblowing and Shruti did an amazing job as well. I felt the villain too was definitely a great find. I somewhat agree that the song did at times interrupt the pace of the film but coming out of the theatre I was just in awe of what a great movie it was. It will make every Tamilan proud to be Tamil. I don’t understand why everyone feels the need to nitpick and find flaws instead of appreciating the movie as t definitely is a milestone in Tamil cinema. We should be encouraging actors and directors to make more movies like this to showcase the potential of Tamil Cinema instead of only supporting mindless masala movies.

  • K.M.Raj

    I completely disagree with this review. This is an awesome and extranordinary movie. One could really see the effort of director, editor in this movie. Special hats-off to Suriya who has taken the role of Bodhidharman so seriously and his eye and face expressions should be really appreciatable. For the first 10 minutes of the movie itself, I can give rating 5/5.

    • gautum

      you ever seen chinese or english its already came likethis…plz your review is waste…

  • srikant

    7 am arivu is a master piece effort by murugadoss and surya…. xecellent performance by surya………superbbbbbbb movie….. bluck buster of d year……….

  • Vakdew

    i dont think the reviewer knew anything about movies
    blastardly accused

  • Chezhian Raja

    The reviewer did not understand the concept of the movie.
    The entire team came with their best.The movie is a bluck buster movie of the year

  • Akash Ajay

    The Review Writer Doesn’t Understand the Concept of the Movie……
    This Will Be a Super Block Buster Movie Of the year…

    • teribahinkaloda

      Agree with reviewer. Looks like all these blind mofos have not seen the same 7am Arivu that I did. Naan paatha padam nee paakavillai. Surya bhoothakkannadi authhu vittu reality-kku vaanga – illiterate mofongala.

  • Siva prakash

    7am is amazing…..worst review

  • amar

    ,cnt agree with reviewer……, the film hs gne to a international level.

  • chidanand mysore.

    it is a very good movie, director Murugadoss had don
    good work. director says Bodhi Dharman who is from south indian man who went to china in order to stop a deadly disease originating there from reaching India. & who the chinees killed him.

  • arun

    what a flop given by surya…dont worry surya …pls go and die

    • mithran

      u go n die

    • gokul

      watch it again u ‘will understand it well

  • Arjun

    The reviewer is really dumb. This film, though has a short commings, can largely be considered a masterpiece. Which movie, excepting Endhiran’s story line is so unique ? This movie is definitely a dawn of a new path for the cine industry.

  • Preethi

    Surya is nowadays concentrating more on only exposing his body , just like shriya saran :-) :-) :-)

  • irf

    the review is absolutely nonsense and i watched this movie recently and its one of the best movie in recent times with a universal story and message.this website as its domain speaks only good on the predictable and incapable hindi movies(Ra one)

  • Kaamz

    Worst review… watch it onceagain… U get to know

  • rahul

    its a bollywood site so u people go behind them…worst review..didnt understand story then why r u writing review…

  • Shan

    One of the worst review…. For those who have read this sites review, just ignore this and go and watch the movie… Its worth watching and I think the person who has written the review must be an illiterate. These kind of movies will only lift the standards of Indian cinema and the only way to educate ppl about science… Its an absolute trend setter.

  • shyam sunder

    MY OPINION ABOUT THE FILM BORED.
    REASONS:
    1.UNWANTED SONGS
    2.LOGICLESS FIGHTS
    3.OVER HYPE
    POSITIVES:
    1.HISTORY
    2.HEROIEN ORIENTED STORY SHRUTI DONE WELL
    3. FOR ME VILLIAN WAS HERO.

    THIS IS A HISTORICAL MOVIE AND IT NEEDS TIME TO EXPLAIN BUT CONSIDERING THE MYTH IN TAMILIANS MINDS SONGS FIGHTS ARE REQUIRED. THIS NEEDS A UPPER PUNCH AND NEEDS TO BE RELEASED IN ENGLISH WORLDWIDE. IT WOULD BE A HIT.

    THE SCREEN PLAY WAS BAD AND MURUGADOSS TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO ALL PEOPLE AND THE MESSAGE MIGHT BE REACHED. BUT OVERALL BADDDDD.

    BACKGROUND MUSIC IS THE WORST FOR ALL WHAT HAPPENED TO HARRIS WHY WHY WHY WHY ME!!!

    I WAS UTTER DISAPPOINTED BY PETER HEIN AS HE WAS THE BEST IN THIS BUSINESS. HE LET ME DOWN.
    STUNTS WAS NOT UP TO PERER’S PERFORMANCE AT ALL I THINK HYPNOSIS MIXED STUNT WAS THE WORST AND IT CAUGHT SO BAD. I STILL HAVE CONFIDENCE IN PETER U ARE TOO GOOD TO BE HERE.

    ATLAST WE GOT ONE OF THE BEST HOLLYWOOD ACTORS AND HE WAS NOT AT ALL UTILIZED UP TO THE MARK AT ALL, ATLEAST IN PERANMAI HE WAS USED BETTER THAN THIS. TOOO BAD.
    I WOULD SUGGEST VILLIAN TO BE HERO AND SURYA TO BE THE VILLIAN.

    LAST THING IS THAT THIS IS NO A SURYA MOVIE THIS IS SHRUTHI MOVIE CHUBBY GIRL SWEET TAMIL AWESOME BEAUTY PLEASE GO FOR HOLLYWOOD PLS DON’T FIGHT WITH THESE GIRLS……………..

    GOOD MESSAGE MUST SEE FOR THE MESSAGE ATLEAST IN DVD…….

    • loved it

      Firstly I don’t even understand what you are saying. Anyways I thought the movie was amazing and Surya actually did an amazing job

  • Johni

    We thing cineswamy is a unmetric and sensless guy.

  • Johni

    Shyam sundar is best so ever to indian cinema and india go back before freedom. Congragulation for ur comment u are a saddist to india and indian. Best of luck.

  • Ramesh

    I am from Sydney. Yesterday I watched 7am arivu movie. I like so much. Comapare to first half, second half was amazing.Don’t miss it.

    Surya, Shruti and Chinese Villain (Dong Li) done excellent performance.

  • PREM

    worst movie i have every seen….semma mokka…cant sit in theatre;;;a big flopppppp

  • Vijay

    Bakwas review , the movie is not that bad, Infact I appreciate director for making such a movie.Like any other movie its got few minus points and more pluses. its a good movie watched in australia, gonna watch it once again. Surya’s performance superb, excellent movie

  • yousee

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. It’s an average b-grade movie. Cannot be compared with Gajini. Director is better off copying hollywood movies. He did great job copying critically acclaimed movies like “mememto” and “pay it forward”. He should stick with copying already well written well scripted movies.

  • sathish

    nice movie 7am arivu…………

    • Rajmohan

      Good documentary movie. And Lee is the Hero of the Movie.
      Murugadoss should have used atleast his sixth sense, if he has….

  • Arul

    you keep saying the movie has not script then you say the director messed up but havent explained one scene where he messed up in the entire article ? Looks like you got into writing the review with a already fixed outcome!!

  • benam

    This is written by bollywood people, its obvious they criticize tamil movies…

  • VELU

    UNBELIVEABLE SURYA ROCKS….
    VERY SIMPLE SCREENPLAY,HATS OFF MURUGADOSS
    REALLY FILM IS NICE…PLS DONT BELIVE IN THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS…

  • mani

    there are some negative side but, worth to watch movie

  • Omprakash

    Nt tat nubful film of surya but it s gud fr once 2watch

  • Murali (Canada)

    You too Murugadoss?????? What Happened to you.
    I watched this movie first day first show in Canada and very average movie, Too much flaws no logic…..Should have been concentrated on screenplay….. Suriya waking up and fighting in the climax come on how many movies we had seen this…….. Would be nice if Suriya uses his power (Mesmerism) to tackle Dong Lee and break his plans/traps after interval rather than just getting the power in the end.
    Positive:
    1. Fist 20 Minutes.
    2. Shruti and Suriyas performance.
    3. Some dialogues

    Flaws:
    1. Shruti following Suirya for over one year but actually Suirya Follows Shruti and their first meeting was an accident in Circus. (She was looking for a monkey)
    2. Shruthi has taken all medical checkup when the accident happened to Suriya (How she knows this Accident is going to happened??!!!..is she waiting for this?!! …She was in the circus that Accident time?!!! Is she lives in the circus tent!!!!!!
    3. Dong Li is an ordinary man with some marital art skills how can he react like incredible hulk (Breaking trees).
    4. How Dong lee found his Shruthi’s friends house? And Dong Lee is everywhere in Chennai and follows Suriya (IS this Possible)
    5. There is no strong evidence or scenes to Suriya thinks Shruti is in love with him.
    6. Unnecessary gory scenes (Blood coming from Neck)
    7. Songs are very boring and music Is copied from Harish’s old movies (Example: Minala)
    8. Very Ordinary Climax.
    9. Editing is not done properly.

    • Ganesh

      Yes.. shruthi looks like monkey.

      No logic in this movie. Two sense enough to watch 7 am arivu.

      Beg you.. MurkhToss sir. Dont remake this movie in any Indian languges. Try to remake in Chinese.

      Stop the marketing for your 7 AM Sarivu. Hype hype hype.

      • Ramu Kelkar

        Looks very much like the language you speak at home. I know if everybody makes movie with a logic, you will be the only “ahole” (your language) to watch.. Control your expectations…

        It’s an ok entertainer. Better than any Bollywood Crap.. They think “Zindagi Naa Milegi” is the best movie in the world…

        Nice to hear Shruthi speak the Tamil many speak in IT world.. At least not the same dubbing artist voice..

        Forget Logic and watch the movie.. If I need to have logic, neither Amitabh nor Shahrukh will be here.

    • Adithya

      All ur points are 100% correct………..Great mscript but execution very poor…….Harris Jayaraj Background score is very very poor with elephant sounds………..

  • harriz

    is this is slow movie

  • daf

    sadf

  • Manjunath

    There was a lot of expectations but it was not met completly.Murgadas should work on the second half, even in ghajiji the second half was dragging. If the movie opens with a bang it should end with a bang. he needs to work on it in future films.
    surya and shruthi were good surya is given his best and Jhonny could have been used to his best too but instead he keeps walking and hyptonising ppl which was funny.
    too much of hyptonism could be avoided and instead it could have been action sequences.
    You could have maded the best use of Jhonny but failed to.
    the accident fight sequence was a big waste of money that could have saved the produce 10 crores atleast and it could have made the movie even more interesting.
    Dialogues were awesome and lyrics tooo good. It is a slap on peoples face who have forgotten our legacy and our ancestors. We always think that US and Europe are the best, but the fact is that our ancestors were much more civilized than them. We tamilians and indians are no way inferior to anyone else and this movie make every tamilian proud.
    Murugadas should not drag the second half in his future movies atleast and make the movie end with a jolt.

  • Naresh (Bangalore)

    Hello Bollywoodlife,

    What you are try to say, just to give a masala movie with nothing in it what have you mentioned “Murugadoss adds in liberal doses of Tamil jingoism and bemoans India’s brain drain to the West continuously,” how dare you can say like that…you know all well studied and brainy people move to some were else to get their ambitions done. Eventually we will loose all the people who know can lift India from poverty from all the necessary fields. When Tamil (Thamizh) comes in you can’t accept that an Indian (Thamizhan or Tamilan) did some thing which is either real or not you cant accept simply he is a Tamil that why news papers in India use to mention like Tamil fisherman killed by Sri-Lankan Navy rather than mentioning Indian Fisher man killed by Sri-Lankan Navy. You Bollywood people think you are the only people who can make good movies ah! We people from south can also make good movies with good messages in it. We also watch Hindi movies and we always take good things in it. Rather than saying which you cant make. If the same movie came in Hollywood with some other language you people would have lauded it and you feel proud that showing India a gutter place in a movie The SlumDogMillionair which got so called highest award for movie Oscar. Highest award for a movie is our Indian National Award which you(we) should feel proud. You people like only commerical movie rather than a movie with some message that says we Indian excelled in most of the fields thousands of years ago and let it lost in time and today we feel inferior to other country (also inside the country because of ignorance since they have the longest living language in the world)

    “Proud to be an Indian We taught the whole world”

  • tamilan

    shruthi tamil is worst..

  • SED

    The REVIEW IS REALLY WASTE. The Movie is not so worst, the person is not so matured to see the movie.
    Only flaw is songs , apart from others the movie is really good and worth to watch.

    I really enjoyed the movie and concept is stark and very well showcased. All the character had equal part to play.

    The person who usually tastes the regular masala cannot understand this movie. So donot comment on this movie.

    • SANDY

      HEY GUYZZZ STORY ROCKING BUT SCREEN PLAY SUXXXX NO.. REALITY …. NO COORDINATION OF SONGS WITH STORY …….! BUT CLIMAXX THEEEEE BEST .. FRANCKLY SAYIN… OVEREXPECTED BUT NOT UPTO THE LIMIT

  • kridh

    Good movie to watch. Review is bad review and it much much better movie then RA-ONE.

  • K.SHANMUGARAJ

    Good movie in tamil 7Aam Arivu….Good Suriya sir…

    SURYA ROCKZ in this movie……….
    SURYA’s Hard work for this movie never fails……

  • R.KAMAL VALLUVAR

    7 Aam arivu is 50%entertainment &50%skills for history of the tamilnadu.movie introduction&i st of super.background music,romantic music dull.
    ra-one-it is one of the game
    7 Aam arivu-ONE CINIMA

  • a raja

    this movie can be watchable and enjoy one time. story screeplay editing is not big problem. when u see this film ur hair in ur body will standup and u can imagine what we are loosing our strength and where we are depending so unnecesarily for tamil people. we were the creater in the past and we are the beggers now this is the story of this film. thats all. promote ur next generation to understannd what is our past history by the way we can move forward proudly. a good salute to muruadoss and co

  • Adithya

    Very very very poor film by a.r.murugadoss………what a waste……A great opening for suriya as Bodhi dharmar but when it comes to present day the film becomes one of the worst ever seen

  • radhi

    This review is biased, Im sure the person who wrote this review may not be having any brain.
    7am arivu is such a good movie. will be the greatest hit of Indian cinema ever.

    Why people write this kind of fake reviews, The person must be crook.

  • Jay

    Very bad, biased review. Splendid and original movie.

  • Vasantha

    I saw this movie yesterday, and seems the review provided is not taken many points into consideration. And the movie totally needs to look from different angles. Not only acting, screen play and dots connected..?

    Before making an movie, Director has chosen very good script its like Hollywood movies where the movie will not only with hero’s with some technology mix,it has been used in very good sense by director.

    Acting, no need to tell again.. as Surya has done max justice to his role. and Debut heroine Shruthi with acting in blood also done very nicely… Director has used his skills to show her in different fashions.

    And finally, the message we take is very important..no Indian should miss this message as we have resouces .. we never cared about them.. hanging on western..

    TOTALLY THIS MOVIE HAS TO BE WATCHED BY ALL…

  • Ashok

    I saw the movie yesterday, i was really surprised by the unfair comments given by north indians and non-tamil south indians.. A R Murugadoss has dedicated this movie for Tamil audience and Tamil language however, it has to be understood that the movie deals with the lost tamil patriotism and nothing to do with indian or hindi culture.. The reason for spreading negative reviews is its hard for them to digest the truth about Tamilians. AWESOME WORK!!! Must watch for every tamilian..

  • veeram

    Murugadoss What Happened to you……? Did you venture out to a such a story or script without looking into commercial aspects, simply because a producer can afford to any out come of this movie? I have seen the movie, in fact Villan seemed to be the hero like and more of actual content. Even the villan except for a few fights – gyms – in the film he was starring at more than actual fighting himself but made others to do it. You might be telling the truth of what happend 1600 years back, who wants to buy all this now – Pl ponder with Suria also.

  • m.ganesan

    7 aam arivu… 1.It is truly news to most that Bodhidharman, whom Osho held in highest esteem only next to Buddha is really a Tamil.Nice to know origin of Zen Buddhism…probably the true root is more of the siddhars teaching which for chinese market has been propogated as Zen Budhism. 2. I see traces of Kamalhasan in the plot of the story.. Dasavatharams reflections can be seen too..but probably the writer too has not gone into the depth of the heart of Zen… to put more life in the story.
    3.If we can accept AVATAR plot as acceptable, probably DNA root story also could be acceptable… though hard to understand how DNA experiment could be successful since it wasnt completed successfully…and with all the five nature elements playing havoc, wondering how everything negative turned positive
    3.Was Bodhidarmans contributions more of hypnotism …as seemed to be the case in this movie?…
    4.Wondered what happened to 9 years of meditation of bodhidharman in the caves of china .Bodhidarman seemed to come to china fully mastering all knowledge. Was that history?
    5Great attempt of giving pride to our roots…though the important things like finding the cure for the virus was not shown as usual..
    6Anyway coming out of the theatre, my teenage daughter and my niece made this comment : “I AM PROUD TO BE A TAMILAN AND I AM READY AND WANT TO PURSUE WITH PRIDE MY HIGHER EDUCATION IN INDIA” … Glad something positive to come out from a movie to influence the mind set of Malaysian teenagers and that is great.
    Overall I loved the movie …though i would have appreciated more of the connection on finding cure for virus successfully rather than the masala hypnotism and shaolin kungfu. m. ganesan . seremban, malaysia

  • Jijo

    Its the biggest flop

    • shankar

      But, better than velayudam.

      • Ambadi.P.S

        Better than Velayudham..!!!

  • goodman

    I like this review, coz most of the reviewers have been absolutely biased. someone has even given this movie 4 stars, how stupid, who made these people critics. coming to the movie, i knew it would not be a good movie coz murugadoss was never a good director, ending of tamil ghazini was absolute crap, aamir might have changed it to little reasonable one. but 7 aam arivu is another crap movie, director thinks audience are fools and takes them on some biotech ride with nothing logical. even for people who are ignorant one should not give wrong information like this. i feel if only the first 30 mins were a movie it would have been better. to hell with the current critics i wont believe anyone now. to all critics, be true to ur conscience atleast.

  • hari

    same as vijay previous movies

  • bharath

    super mokkai film…

  • Raj

    I think, the people commenting here are Vijay fans.

    Don’t trust these people. They don’t know what they’re talking about.

    7am Arivu is a great movie that every Tamilian must watch. Don’t go to those same masala movies that shows a village guy suddenly becomes superhero (they not only make you fool, but get your money treating you like a kid). But this movie has a real history and concept that every Tamilian must know. For sure, this movie will have an effect on you when you come out.

    so guys simply don’t comment without knowing what you’re talking about. I never watch movies second time in theatres. But I will watch this again.

    • sathu

      raj

      u have more money means give to some of them to have a food for once not to visit theatres for twice ok va.u can’t become birla atleast give a beggar a ffood vair fulla

    • Ambadi.P.S

      What you are saying is absolutely true.I watched it 5 times.Great movie..!!
      It is this stupid reviewers who make Suriya’s films a flop.
      Jai Suriya
      & I’m a Suriya fan.

  • Raj

    Just forgot to mention.. Don’t think that I’m Surya fan or Murugadoss.. I’m not a fan of anyone involved in this movie. The have a great content in the movie. I wrote my comment purely based on their content.

    Raj

  • Gowtham

    People who say negative comments about this film are NOT FIT to be Tamilians.
    First of all, 7Aam Arivu Movie cannot be compared to any tamil films. Th film says a message which 99% of the Indians doesn’t knows. We should be 1st ashamed of it. Hats off to the Director Sir. Please don’t criticize the good films.

    • ebe

      who say about this movie like bad or flop . They are mental and . . . . . . . . . . . ?!. . Do you understand this????

  • arun

    7aam arivu is the greatest milestone in tamil flim.this movie is dedicated to tamil people by murugados.surya acted very super. harris jeyaraj music is fantastic.
    some people this movie is flop.they are losed our sixth sense.

  • Sivajini

    Tamil jingoism??? Despite your review, mark my words, this movie will be remade into a Hindi, I’d like to read your review then.

  • Raj

    Hello Cineswami,

    Sorry to say this. You never watched a good movie in your life, I guess. That’s why you have written this is a “colossal disappointment”. You’re completely biased of something else and never learned how to appreciate a great movie with real history behind it and moreover a movie that makes all Tamilians feel proud.

    So I strongly suggest that you change your review title.

    Raj

  • Vinayak

    .Just don’t compare 7am arivu with velaudham..coz we everybody were known the whole things[story, song pattern,stund and all that] in the film velaudham when ever we were came to know who the hero in that film was.. ……
    So pls try to compare good fims with good ones……
    There may be a few mistakes in 7am arive but those all things shold be neglected while waching the film Because WE ALL ARE THE PEOPLE WHO KNOWS TAMIL….whom were unknown about the story of the great master…’BOHIDHARMA’

    • sathu

      thambi velayudham is a recent remake story but 7am arive is remake of concept 1600years ago. u no only about the recent not about the past. movies are just entertainment not for real aspects, comaprission is wrong. both are good entertainers got it.first site la comment adikirudhu vitu life a govani, u cant become velayudham nor bodhidharma ok

  • Asha

    Velayutham movie s rockzzzzzz

  • rajendran kb

    this is a very good movie unlike routine college love stories.
    this kind of film requires research work which many director afraid to venture.

    many congratulation to the director murugadoss as this film will find a place in tamil film history

  • Raj

    Cineswami is talking out of his …. when he says Shanker is a better ‘message movie’ maker. Yes, we all saw Boyz. 7aum Arivu has the best message any Tamil film has ever carried. Non-Tamils may not like it but the message and the film is for Tamils.

    Cineswami are you by any chance a non-Tamil.

  • Hg

    Dont even compare vijay movie with this one. Story is new, execution is new etc etc.

    It’s not the same masala movie.
    Take the past 10 movies of vijay and past 10 movies of surya and see who chooses better movies and stories.

    You will get the answer

    • sathya

      neither vijay nor Surya is bad sir.Both are equally talented got it.

  • Ambadi.P.S

    What A STUPID REVIEW…!!!
    I WATCHED 7AAM ARIVU MORE THAN 5 TIMES.
    IT IS WAY BETTER THAN VELAYUDHAM..!!
    VELAYUDHAM IS A NORMAL VILLAGE STORY WHEREAS 7AAM ARIVU IS A GREAT ENTERTAINER.IT IS YOU PEOPLE WHO MAKE SURIYA’S FILMS A FLOP.NEVER EVER AGAIN WRITE STUPID REVIEWS LIKE THIS…
