Adhik Ravichandran made his debut with a movie which was an absolutely absurd story of a guy who got ditched by girls (Trisha Illana Nayanthara). The director has come up with his new movie titled Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan (AAA) with the same anti female politics. This time along with that agenda Adhik sort of helps Silambarasan in promoting the off screen persona of the actor through silver screen. With writing only having an agenda of bitching girls and praising Simbu, enjoying this movie is a tough task.
Madura Michael is this local Goon who lives by doing the sort of stuff henchmen do. In a particular situation Michael had to leave Madura and go to Dubai leaving everything he had. The life after that where Michael is trying settle down and how the attempts to find a perfect girl eventually make things complicated is what Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan discussing.
Let me tell you a scene in the movie. Our hero is in jail and to get him out of there, his friend gives poisoned Halwa to all the policemen in the jail and guess what?! All the policemen go down and every other prisoner there forms a human stairs up to the top of the wall of the jail and Madhurai Michael walks up to the top and escapes. If you can imagine that scene and get Goosebumps, you are that guy Adhik Ravichandran is looking for. In the entire movie Simbu might have got a minimum of 20 scenes where he is walking in slow motion with big bang background score after delivering a punch line. From the intro song to the occasional heroic dialogues, the film seems to have only one agenda of making Simbu (not the character) a good guy. I have nothing against the actor, but if you try this hard on a stupid film to make your off screen image look better, even those with neutral opinion might end up hating you.
Adhik Ravichandran doesn’t seem to have any vision to prove that he knows to add some cinematic quality to content. The imaginations are too much to handle and the amount of time spent on totally irrelevant subplots is huge. There is an Acham Yenbathu Madamiyada spoof featuring Motta Rajendran and Kovai Sarala. An electric shock related comedy is there in the first half. The kind of annoyance such scenes create just makes it more and more unbearable. The climax of the movie ends on an emotional outburst of the character and I was like “Dude, you judged a girl without properly knowing her and you want to punish her for your mistake?”. At one point hero is giving a lecture on how to behave with girls and in the climax his mentality is almost similar to the logic of saying women who wears small dress deserves to get raped. There are too many hypocritical statements in this movie. This wasn’t the Yuvan Shankar Raja album I was hoping to hear.
Simbu portrays the role in his usual style and there is nothing graceful here to make the character look that much appealing. Shriya Saran is there in the first half of the film and doesn’t have much to do. Tamannah once again gets a role for her mere good looks. The supporting cast has Motta Rajendran, Kovai Sarala, VTV Ganesh and many others and nobody makes an impression.
The worst thing about Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan is that it has got a Part 2 and the director ensures that this will also be an anti feminist movie. Dear girls, don’t ditch boys rudely. Some of them end up making films and they are unbearable.
