While the Kollywood machine keeps churning out films, there are some that attract more attention than others

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. Click here to read more
7aam Arivu: Suriya and Shruti Haasan sizzle
Check out the sexy pictures of Suriya and Shruti Haasan in the new film, releasing October 26
Suriya and Shruti Haasan star in 7aam Arivu, directed by AR Murugadoss of Ghajini fame. Suriya essays three roles in the movie – a trapeze artiste, a Buddhist monk and a scientist. Like Shahrukh Khan’s RA.One, this film is also a sci-fi thriller, the story revolving around a time machine. Suriya’s look in the film is similar to his Ghajini look, with six-pack abs and a toned body. But in 7aam Arivu, he also sports a mop of long hair. Kamal Haasan’s daughter Shruti Haasan plays the leading lady in this Tamil film. 7aam Arivu will be dubbed in Telugu and might even remade in Hindi with Aamir Khan, who also starred in Murugadoss’ Ghajini remake.
