Chandramukhi...

Just watched Chandramukhi... err, for the first time. Didn't find company to make it to the theatre before.

Kind of thoroughly enjoyed the flick... more so since expectations were pretty low after 'Baba'. A decently thought about and executed storyline, if you let that initial Jet-Li inspired, purely commercial minded stunts pass. Even the humour and pretty scary eye-ball rolls turned out well. All in all, enjoyed it well. Kudos to the makeup team as well. :)

Looks like Rajni is here to stay for more.

Chandramukhi turned out to be quite an amazing movie. It is actually better than the original MANICHITRATHAZHU, the Malayalam movie from which the basic script has been borrowed from.

Cheers.......Jam

@Jam: Hmm.. piece of news. But there is also a Kannada/telugu movie based on same story right?

@Venkat

Just to remind that you that 'thalaivar' of yours already has one foot in the grave and cannot last forever. And that is when the 'ilaya thalapathi' will step in. Just in case you forgot, I m referreing to VIJAY, the most happening hero south of Hyderabad.

Cheers.......Jam

@Jam: True. Atleast when it comes to attracting masses, and that in huge number with slapstick comedy and entertainment, Vijay seems to havee gotten his formula right. But then, I don't really know if fans are fanatical enough to have one superstar in every era.
