Vijay Antony, after trying his hand at a couple of thrillers, is back with an out and out fun riot in India Pakistan. Is the movie worth its promotions? Find out in our review.
India Pakistan Plot:
Vijay Antony and Sushma Raj are lawyers and are forced to share a house(also their office) under one condition: whoever manages to nab the first case can stay while the other should walk out.
Rest of the plot revolves around the lead pairs' bitter sweet relationship intertwined with another story that involves a cop.
What happens to the case and how does a corrupt cop involves himself into the story is said with a generous dose of comedy turning this into a fun riot.
Newcomer Sushma shines throughout with her body language and lip sync. Her expressions will make you wonder if this is really her first outing.
MS Bhaskar and Pasupathy add strength and stability to the casting. Watch out for Manobala's performance in the climax which will leave you rolling in the aisles.
Vijay Antony disappoints with his rigid expressions and body language. Looks like he is still stuck in his previous character(Salim) and needs to come out of it to prove that he can handle various subjects.
Music by Deena Devarajan is a huge let down as he fails to impress with his songs(bad placement of songs don't help either). His background score too is mediocre.
The film does tests your patience at times but is saved by its brilliant comedy sequences. Editor M Thiyagarajan could've used his scissors a bit more to shorten the movie's length.
Cinematography by N Om is subtle which makes it difficult to judge the angles. He has failed to capture the mood and tone of certain scenes though.
Screenplay by director N Anand is pretty straight forward which helps a film like India Pakistan as its lone aim is just to make you laugh and the director has succeeded in doing so.
India Pakistan sure manages to leave you in splits but fails to do that throughout and has nothing else to offer.
Check out some of the best scenes from the movie in the slides below:
Vijay Antony With Jagan
The film is produced Vijay Antony's wife. Satellite rights of the film is secured by Zee Tamizh
Pasupathy At His Best
Pasupathy's acting is a class apart. You throw him with any character and the actor manages to come out with flying colors.
Jagan The Saving Grace
It can be said that the movie's first half was saved by Jagan and without his comedy sequences the first half would've fallen flat.
Vijay And Sushma
The film was announced by Vijay Antony in September 2013, when he revealed that he would work on the project alongside his commitment to another venture, Thirudan.
Vijay As A Lawyer
Production works began in 2013, but Vijay Antony concentrated on the release of his other production venture Salim, which released last year.
MS Bhaskar In The Movie
The shooting subsequently began in April 2014 and the film was shot straight for sixty days.
One Of The Best Scene
Though the film is aimed at making the audience laugh, which it achieves, a few technical and logical flaws comes back to hinder the flow of the film.
Other Cast And Crew
All the other artists who have done supporting roles have done their bit and manage to evoke laughter as well.
Vijay Antony's New Career?
If Vijay is taking his acting career seriously, then he perhaps, should take it seriously and start working on his versatility and expressions.
Box Office Success?
Despite the mixed critics review, looks like the movie has enough in it to become a box office success.
