M Rajesh is back with his latest movie All in All Azhagu Raja.
After delivering hattrick, the director has chosen Karthi, who has not tasted a big success since
2011. Like his previous movies, the latest Tamil movie too belongs
to comedy genre.
Low-budget comedy movies have done good business in Tamil film industry this year. The most common element among them is - Santhanam! The comedian's histrionics on-screen have played a crucial part in the success of those flicks. Now, All in All Azhagu Raja too banks on him with Karthi's starpower guaranteeing a good opening for the movie.
All in All Azhagu Raja is pitched against a biggie like
Ajith Kumar's Arrambam and Vishal Krishna's
Nadu this Diwali. So, getting positive reviews is a must
for the Karthi's flick. Has the movie lived up to audience? Will
the movie survive in the tough battled Diwali race? Will Karthi be
able to return to his form after flops like Saguni and
Alex Pandian? Find it all in the review...
Azhagu Raja (Karthi), the only son of Prabhu and Saranya
Ponvannan, owns an unpopular cable channel named AAA. There are
only two employees, one being Raja and other Kalyanam (Santhanam)
in the TV channel. No matter what they do, neither TRPs nor
revenues were improving. The hero, accidentally, comes across Devi
Instead of trying to impress her, Azhagu Raja picks up a fight
with Devi Priya when she sings a song at a marriage. Her weird
singing songs irk him and eventually, makes him to express his
anger on her singing abilities. Sooner or later she realises that
her singing is very bad. As they start liking each other, a
flashback of Prabhu opens up. It has to be noted that Karthi steps
into Prabhu's story set in the 80s. Continue reading the
review on the slideshow...
Prabhu's flashback shows us that he was working with her grand
father played by Nassar and he had left the job after he was
insulted by him.
The story of All in All Azhagu Raja is too lengthy and
mainly banks on the comedy part. Precisely on Santhanam.
Tests Your Patience
The length of the movie, despite shortening by 11 minutes,
bothers the audience to the maximum extent. It tests your patience
in the second half as M Rajesh beats around the bush to wrap up the
Wrong Placement Of Song
While the first half is passable, the second half is highly
boring. The placement of the last song irks the audience.
Karthi has given a good performance in All in All Azhagu
Raja. His 80s avatars will be appreciated by fans.
Kajal Aggarwal has played her part well. But this time, the
actress, who is believed to be a lucky charm for producers, has
failed to repeat her magic as the screenplay is badly
Santhanam comes out with brilliant performance. Even his avatars
of 80s will be praised.
Rest other characters like Prabhu, Radhika Apte, Saranya
Ponvannan and MS Bhaskar have justified their roles.
S Thaman's 'Yaarukum sollaama' and 'Unna partha neram' are good.
His background score is praiseworthy. Remaining departments are
A comedy story presented in a boring way. Watch it if you love
Santhanam's comedies or if you are Karthi's fan.
