Atlee In Raja Rani Movie Review
Yesterday I watched Atlee’s debut movie Raja Rani
“there is love after love failure” and importantly “there is life after love failure”.
Movie start’s with a lovely wedding between Arya and Nayanthara where the two marry against their wishes just to appease their near and dear ones.
After some scene the main flash back comings, their back stories and the romances with Arya & Nazriya and Nayan & Jai respectively in their lives prior to this marriage.
Santhanam plays Arya’s dearest friend with his buddy and at the same time generating the expected share of chuckles. His consistency as a comedian, movie after movie is terrific and he also proves that he can shine as an “actor”. The scene at the hospital when Nayan insults Arya is a classic example of the myriad reactions that Santhanam can bring about in his facade.
The new darling in town, Nazriya appears really cute and her introductory dance to “Ringa Ringa” is easily among the most endearing heroine intro scenes in recent memory. Her girly voice sure has some appeal.
Arya exhibits maturity in emotional scenes, shares great chemistry with both the lead ladies and breezes through the role. Jai is a great comedic element in the first half with his constant weeping and self-pitying antics. His shrill voice suits such scenes well. Sathyan as his senior at the call centre contributes well to the movie’s comedy.
Sathyaraj is stylish playing the uber-cool dad to Nayan. Scenes like both addressing each other as “darling” and Nayan offering a bottle of beer to “correct” her dad are enjoyable. The emotional scene in the car when Nayan opens her heart out to her dad has been enacted brilliantly by both these actors. Raja Rani could qualify as Nayanthara’s career best performance till date. Great comeback by the actress with a role which gave her ample scope.
Naan Kadavul Rajendran, in never-seen-before suave and professional costumes plays to the gallery and is slowly becoming a crowd favourite thanks to his striking appearance and voice.
G.V.Prakash is the bloodline of Raja Rani breathing life into Atlee’s script. His rerecording for the romance scenes and other intense moments is top notch and lifts the overall movie viewing experience. He is no doubt among the best when it comes to scoring BGMs.
G.V.Prakash and Atlee missed the song’s Score.
The movie’s running time too length. It should be trimmed…
Atlee has ably handled a pure romantic film with so many seasoned actors on board and joins the list of promising directors to have made their debut this year.
Arya was not scored too much of the this flim. Jai and Nayan scored.
Over all Performance : Debut director Atlee Successfully launched first project.
