Two thumbs up for a daringly different creation!
Well that’s what they’re saying folks and by ‘they’ we mean the ecstatic and thrilled fans who saw Karthik Subbaraj’s Jigarthanda today on its releasing date, August 1st!
Jigarthanda stars Siddharth and Lakshmi Menon in the lead roles, while Bobby Simha plays the third guy in the equation or the antagonist.
The flick was touted quite uniquely as a ‘musical gangster story’ and given Karthik’s first directorial venture Pizza was a huge hit, the expectation for this one were quite high. The controversy surrounding the release date kept the movie in the headlines, although it looks like it really did not need the added publicity – the movie speaks for itself…
There were apparently standing ovations at the end of some of the screenings and the fans were especially stunned by both Siddharth’s and Simha’s performances.
The viewers who have tweeted out countless amazing tweets praising the movie were very impressed with some of the cliff hangers in the movie and have applauded the comedy which they described as ‘roll on the floor laughing’ funny!
There were even a few fans who watched two shows straight, and yet others who tweeted out during the interval that they wished the second half would start already as the suspense was killing them.
Now, if that isn’t a great review, what is?
Popular opinion so far is that the first half is ‘mass’ and the second half is extremely intriguing and full of twists.
The romance in the movie was also greatly appreciated by the fans as a love triangle is at the crux of the plot, apparently. So Lakshmi Menon has reason to celebrate as well, with this being her umpteenth consecutive hit!
There were some fans who were wondering how the mass audiences would receive the film, given its refreshing take, but on the whole it looks like finally Dhanush’s Velai Illa Pattathaari is going to get some stiff competition at the box office now..
