From Paragon To Paradise......



The movie reviews that i have done has given me such an appreciation from my friends that i am planning to write another review. This movie is one of the recent releases that rocked Kollywood. If u guys are already aware of the state of these movies i'd recommend that u read this review as a joke. Not that the movie differs from being a joke....but yeah a joke all the same...The movie is Saravana...


Now guys plz dont ask me how i came about to see it... Thats a very depressing story indeed... Well as they say in tamil.. "a thorn should be prised out with thorn".. so I did see the movie to prise out a worser depression... Now to get on with the movie.. The movie stars a star or our dear "kutti" super star Simbhu who looks his usual self (He cant look worse !!!).. Can't actually blame him though... The days of genetic mutation are yet to come... But to be just, one can find a refined TR in Simbhu... If u have noticed the title of my blog u should have now guessed why it is titled so.

Yeah.. The female cast ie Jo who had risen to be one of the top paid actress in Kollywood. Who would believe when we say she was in Paragon ADs some time back... Well she deserves all credit. She's been jumping up the scene as she did in her AD..and She's jumped pretty high too.. Kudos to her for that.. And so Saravana begins with an introduction to the heroine, or at least the first noticeable part is this.. Jo rises up in the morning with the aid of her "English" Rooster (That's the best the playwright could find to describe an Alarm clock :( ) .. Then she cooks her food, takes bath,eats food with a litre of gingelly oil for two Dosas(And she's proud of that!!! ) , goes to study, and does part time at Pizza shoppie, and gets back home and sleep... Well that's some introduction that u would want your heroine to get :x... Muahahaaaah.. even a novice can contrieve a better introduction than that !!!



After Such an placid introduction we see our little star who happens to have a crush for the sister of his close friend... Well what an epitome for friendship !!! Eat it well guys and chew them well, coz there's more funda stuff to come.. So Mr.S who does his engineering (choooooo...trendy !!!) decides to spend his hols at his friends place to have a good time with the cute sis (JO).. and how does he do that ???? Bingo !!! he takes a female attire (suits him actually) and guess wat ??? he magically remains un recognized by his close friend !!! And the story takes a twist... Aaaaaaarrrrrrrggggghhhhh !!! Suddenly we see S and J at S's house... J is seen witha broken heart for some unknown reason..

But yeah... Rip offs are quite expected in tamil movies and we can see mighty glimpses of Ghilli (which in itself was a rip off )... Gosh we have turned in to masters in Rip offs !!!! So S protects J from certain unseen forces (unseen as of now).. And of course S still has the crush for J...And due to certain complications(fill in your imagination and it will fit in) S has to disclose the reason of his hiding J under his protection.... And the story goes back to where from it broke out....

So here comes the family of Jo.... The family head is invariably the village head (We have seen it for the N th time N--> infinity) and a very respectable person. And yah.. the village is full of violence due to a family feud. And the real punch J's father is a BITS graduate !!! Gosh.. Can kollywood get soo gross ??? seems it has.. Thank God that it wasn't Stanford or Harvard...Did i forget to mention that J was studying at Oxford ??? :) .. And so J's dad doesnt wish his children to grow up under riots and so sends them to study elsewhere. The entire family was attracted towards S (which was enacted with great difficulty let alone it be true..) attracted to such an extent that they wish to marry her off to him..(a really brave decision!!! which would never happen without the director) And at this juncture, the entire family is killed during a riot and the father finds no alternative but to assign the duty of protecting his daughter to S (poor dad !!! )

And so thats how S brings J under his protection and cleverly escapes the clutches of the enemy who's brother he had killed.. But the film has to end and so the villain's finally manage to fish them out from the vast population of Chennai... And so S plans to send J to England.. J tries to bring some sentiment here (romance) but eventually fails to bring out any.. cant really blame her.. a tuff job with S around.. But yah.. a love does develop somehow between them and J comes to know of it from a friend of S who she's never met but yet used her sixth sense to recognize her.... Eat this my dear friends.. I found that pretty indigestive.. Done ?? well.. thankfully the movie is about to end (one can easily guess that in tamil movies ).. and after a coupl of matrix style heroics the movie ends with "and they live happily ever after" .. The film does have a couple of punch lines by S which the director finds inevitable considering the genetics of S...

Well in short I can say two sentences about the movie...

"A must see"

"If at all u need to sqaunder some money !!"

but yeah... paragon to paradise is a true fact .. it should find its place in "Belive it or not !! "
