The movie is a roller coaster ride. The interesting thing is that the film opens with a scene that has been seen before from any Rajinikanth film, yet the entire setup is a new matter. Then you have Chak De India, which goes away from the usual good cop/bad cop theme. Then you have joga and his ex-girlfriend who are good enough to beat the drum for her guy (though he might have been better too). Then you have the chorus girl getting kidnapped, who has been seen as evil previously, and the theme of saving her. Then you have Teja and Sumanth. Then you have Sumanth surviving on a pepsi bottle (that actually works). Then you get to the rest of the story. It’s quite a ride.
So my rating is 3/5. (Hate, hate, hate the part where they swap the title of the movie. I’m saying that after this review, but just for this other review. They should have made it “Double the Double” or something, even though the double is the same, but people are used to thinking of it as T2 and not as T1. Sumanth wanted to change it, and probably the director did it on purpose so that people wouldn’t notice such a minor thing that the name is in small print.)
The target audience of this movie is young women at least 18 years and 30 and more years. Therefore, even though it’s cliched, it’s actually all right for them. Like “batti bati bajayi”, “rather than getting away from trouble, he went in and clarified it for the police”, and “the sweetest revenge”. In this sense, Jaideep Sahni has done a brilliant job. But it’s not very deep. I liked the idea, but it could have been more onscreen.
The trailer of the movie was released on February 2007 with the release of Chak De India movie. The trailer of the movie received a warm response from its audience. The soundtrack of the film was also released in February 2007 alongside the trailer. The movie was promoted as a Patriotic Indian film. The movie released in theatres on 14 August 2007.
A Rajinikanth film is in the mirror. Saksena created, Akshay Kumar produced, he is the hero. This time it is the actor's second outing with start-up production house Sivaji Productions after remaking family-kisser Thalapathy Vijay's Meendum Ennum. Arshad Warsi, whose resume includes five Hindi movies and two VFX-heavy Hollywood productions, is the director. The cast would include Prabhu Deva and the son of Prakash Raj. The Hindi version of the Tamil film would hit the screens on October 17th. 7211a4ac4a
