    Films recently watched & worthy of some discussion

    Thoongavanam - Felt it was average. The tension was consistently reducing. The villains did not seem to do anything at all.

    Thoongavanam

    Stylishly made. But apart from that nothing worked for me. The movie wanders between the dance floor, kitchen and toilet and it becomes boring after a while. I thought they would've worked on this and made a change to the Nuit Blanche script. But it is ditto. I didn't find the original impressive. Same goes for the remake as well..

    Have you seen "Nuit Blanche" (sleepless night )? , Is thoongavan an "Inspiration" from this or a 100% remake ( frame to frame) ?

    I think you are very special Param when comes to raising questions for anything under the sun. The fun is you constantly doing it tirelessly for years. May be this question the millionth of yours. Congrats! Anyway.. Please go and watch before collecting these kind of info on any movie. What does it go to make difference in forming opinion? Even if TV's screen play is good compared to original, you are not going to praise it. Right? You would come up with the one more question like "what is the girl's name who kissing Kamal?

    lol @venki

    I was reading thoongavanam and vedhalam reviews, very good reviews about "thoongavanam ", but average reviews about vedhalam
    , I am not doing this because it is a kamal Film, if you think like that I cant change that ,BTW I watched Visawaroopam 3t imes and dasa 2 times in the cinema, so it is nothing to do with the kamal

    Finally a post from Param which is longer than his signature content. That's what we all want Param. Good!

    Not surprising since I knew that you weren't impressed by Nuit Blanche in the first place.....
    I wish not to talk much about the Thoongaavanam since it just got out..But I would like to say this..I liked Nuit Blanche a lot...Not just for the pulpy no nonsense action blocks...But also for making me empathise with the main character...That's usually a rarity in fast paced thrillers since there is absolutely no space left for the viewer to get himself in mentally. And to do that in as short as 100 minutes was commendable. So its actually good that Kamal's retained the essence of the original in my opinion. Its a concoction that worked for me...So why not....

    AS,

    If Nuit Blanche worked for you, then for sure TV will please you even more.
