My top 5 Tamil movie picks (of the ones I have seen) of the year…
1. Thavamai Thavamirunthu, starring Rajkiran & Cheran – Cheran does it again. For the second year running, his movie wins top honours from me. Rajkiran should be a top contender for the National Award for Best Actor. A simple, yet long tale of a father’s struggle in raising and dealing with his children, it struck a chord with me. Look no further!
In compiling the above, I have not considered Ghajini, which I have not seen and which according to many might be better than some of the movies in my list. Other than this, I loved Arinthum Ariyamalum. Judging by the posters, promos and songs, I expected a very different kinda movie. It was different, but different from what I thought. A pleasant surprise.
Some other picks…
Most overhyped movie of the year: Raam – sad and sick!
Best soundtrack: Anniyan (Harris Jayaraj). I would place Arinthum Ariyamalum (Yuvan Shankar Raja) at number two, and Ghajini (Harris, again) at number three.
Worst song of the year: Ennatha solvenungo? from the movie Sivakasi
Worst pronunication of the year: Madhushree. In the song Mayilirage from Ah Aah, she sings “Kaadhal dhaan kall ezhuthu” (our love will be etched in stone) as “Kaadhal dhaan kall adithu” (love flung stones at us). Shame! Sacrilege!
