Dasavatharam



Kamalhassan wanted 10 roles in a movie , there is no possible way he could've squeezed in 10 roles in a normal ( sequential, logical) storyline. So he chose - Chaos theory. Characters could appear randomly and fade out when not required and still the story would move on. I don't see why everyone made a huge fuss about the story, this movie does not require a story period.

The make-up and the CG could've been better, thats the only sore point. The movie works on two levels; for the masses its the high adrenalin chases, nice humor, a kill every few minutes by Fletcher and the like. And for the people who look for story, logic etc. there is the concept that random events happening to different people has an effect on the final story. This is good enough for me..

Don't have too much to say about Kamalhassan's acting, dialog delivery etc. cos' i watched the movie at home. A lame cam print is all i could get, the video was very poor and the audio was half a second out of sync.

More later ..

But people who haven't seen the movie yet - you need to ignore all the 'no story' reviews and check it out for yourself.
