Friends keep asking me how Aayirathil Ooruvan was.
Surprisingly, it started well, like Mummy and Timeline (arche. dig and missing prof). It was entertaining and novel concept in a Tamil movie. Then the song 'Unn Mela Aasathan'.
Everything goes downhill after that. I don't even want to discuss the trance they go into. Gladiator (the arena scene), Avatar (army, guns against tribals, spears), Da vinci code (hidden society with lost prince), and a little bit of Congo.
I though I was being harsh. This was my opinion before I read the reviews- Indiana Jones must be added to the list too!
Then I read that the team has taken the movie back to the editing table after release as the response was very mixed, the common denominator being confusion.
Besides, too much rape, murder and paint!
I wouldn't recommend it.
