Annadurai Review & Rating|
Annadurai grabbed the attention of movie lovers with its trailer and aggressive promotions. The movie is about two identical brothers Annadurai and Thambidurai (both played by Vijay Anthony) who have completely different characterisations and mindsets. The first half is all about the generosity and alcohol addiction of Annadurai. The second half is better with an interesting twist in the interval. The story has ample scope for sentimental scenes and they work in the favor of the film most of the times.
Vijay is known for coming up with intense and serious roles, this time he tried playing dual roles. He gives a decent performance but he looks a bit awkward in few scenes as he couldn't handle the dual role thing perfectly. He has a lot of scope for performance and he delivers in sentimental and action scenes. His romantic track with Diana Champika looks artificial and Mahima is just okay in her limited role.
G Srinivasan's story is a bit old for the present scenario. He has written a story which revolves around good deeds of a person, his alcoholic addiction, lost love etc. which we have seen in many films till now. His screenplay is so slow that a movie with a runtime of just over 2 hours takes ages to finish. The technical team also doesn't help the movie as the music is not that great and editing is just okay. Production values are good.
Verdict: 'Annadurai' ends up as boring fare with few good emotional scenes.
