Paiyaa - Movie Review

Well, honestly, first, i am not a writer and i have never written movie reviews in my life. If you are expecting a professional analysis with a 5 point scale rating, you are at the wrong place. This is just another youngster like you sharing his experience of a movie of our class. 
If the Dhanush starrer, Polladhavan is a 150 min Ad for Pulsar, Paiyaa is once such for Lancer. If you ask me to describe the movie in one word - i would say "Fabulous". In one sentence,
"An  exciting entertainment pack with full of fearless action, mesmerizing music, thwacking turning points and unexpressed love".
In one paragraph,
It's a story in which a jobless youngster falls for Tamannah in a "Love-At-First-Sight" Fashion and Like any other typical tamil movie, the male lead has no idea about the whereabouts of this bangalore beauty before she asked him for a drive to Mumbai. The feared female lead was in trouble and karthik drives her all the way from Bangalore in a Mitsubushi Lancer. It was a joyful journey with full of fun, furious action sequences, typical turning points & scintillating song sequences.
Except for the highway, he drove the car all over the country. Mostly on Farms, Falls & Forests. Both Being in pressure, the male lead never had the time to express his love - which he finally did in the end or to put in a actual way, the movie ended after he did.
The thuli thuli song was well received by the crowd and the shout is mostly heard when Tamannah was on screen. But it was for this song - என் காதல் சொல்ல நேரம் இல்லை - the whole audience danced and rejoiced. I realized how hit it's going to be, after listening to the rousing roar when it started. No wonder, as it said the story of the movie in four fantastic stanzas with the voice & vocals of Yuvan.
என் காதல் சொல்ல நேரம் இல்லை
உன் காதல் சொல்ல தேவை இல்லை
நம் காதல் சொல்ல வார்த்தை இல்லை
உண்மை மறைத்தாலும் மறையாதடி
உன் கையில் சேர ஏங்கவில்லை,
உன் தோளில் சாய ஆசையில்ல,
நீ போன பின்பு சோகம் இல்லை,
என்று பொய் சொல்ல தெரியாதடி!
The hero is more concerned about helping her to reach her grandma's home in mumbai and remained in hesitation till the very end to express his love. The end of the first half is still fresh in my mind.  It's the first turning point of the movie as every one was only thinking that the story is all about Karthik saving  Tamannah  but this scene revealed Karthik himself having rivals in Mumbai. This last line of the fantastic, fast-paced first-half,
உங்களுக்கு மும்பை-ல வேண்டியவங்க இருக்கற மாதிரி எனக்கு வேண்டாதவங்க கொஞ்சம் இருக்காங்க" 
was told by Karthik after an astonishing action sequence which was very familiar to the climax of one of my Favourite Linugsamy's action pack - RUN. Though Karthik slaughters the Villan Associates with unconventional action moves, it still looked acceptable and appreciable as far as Tamil movie standards is concerned. That sequence should have been kept at the end as the Climax candidate isn't as devastating as the former.
About the leads, Karthik has thrown away his former formal  wears - Soiled Lungi & teared T-shirts and has come in with a fresh face & spectacular style. But regarding his aggression in previous movies, i would say, History Continues. Tamannah is just beautiful as she always is and was charming throughout the movie for which she received most of the applauses. Audience are awe-struck when she was on screen.
To summarize, It's a movie beyond the worth-watching-once tag. Watch out for the following.
  • Scintillating songs spectacularly synched with the visuals - line-by-line.
  • Mind-blowing music of Yuvan - both in Songs & BG in action sequences.
  • Top-Class Cinematography and Visual effects. 
  • Typical Lingusamy's turning points - that uniquely highlights him.
To close out the elaboration, let me just say - Lingusamy is back with a bang!
