Top 5 reasons you should (not) watch the movie Villu

(One month too late but who's counting?) 5. Because Prabhu Deva said it would be like a Bond movie . Don't we all love Bond mov...

(One month too late but who's counting?)


5. Because Prabhu Deva said it would be like a Bond movie.
Don't we all love Bond movies? Where the swashbuckling and svelte spy/hero sets the world on fire with his kickass gadgets, complicated spy-plans and other cool stuff? 
Truth be told, Villu is very much a bond movie, its as bond as the 80's NTR spy movies. Move over 007! 




---> Yexcoose me for the wone minit Mishter Vijay-gaaru!









4. Because of the sheer depth in the music. 
The music in the movie is full of divine wisdom. Take for instance the introduction song. There's an actual verse which goes "Villu na soyin soyin" (arrow means soyin soyin) The sheer amount of depth in that one particular verse leaves us baffled. Apparently many philosophers are currently working on the many varied interpretations of the words "soyin soyin". 
Apart from this one song, the others are on a variety of subjects including sex, sex, sex and doing it.

3. The Story, Plot, etc. 
I'm yet to figure this out. Any one who has cracked the code may kindly help. Watch this movie just to figure out what's happening. Excellent exercise for the brain. However, hemorrhage is possible side effect. Don't tell me I didn't warn you. 

2.  Because Prakash Raj wears a really funny wig. 
Not to mention peacock blue blazers. It's seriously funny. 

1. Excellent wildlife acting. 

Movies, and this one being an apparent Bond movie at that, usually have a pretty sexy girl doing pretty sexy things. Thats precisely where this movie distinctly stands apart (annga vechaaru director twist-a!) - instead of a pretty sexy girl, we have Nayanthara doing pretty sexy things, which would have been pretty sexy if it weren't for the fact that she was so bovine. What's more intriguing is that she suddenly disappears from the movie, without a trace. Chutneycase spies report that it was due to extreme breath constriction which is attributed to her clothes in the movie that are just about 10 sizes too small. 






On a completely unrelated note, this marks my 100th post. Didn't think I'd hang around this long. Think I've done a pretty ok job so far, let's see how things go :)

  1. Vijay is starring in the movie. Do we need 5 other reasons? :-P

  6. no insulting our NTR gaaru ok, you can use rajkumars kannada movies if you want. remm the world famous song 'tick tick tick'?

    you forgot the brilliant technology in how he jumps from a plane into a boat and also the climax where he rises form sand!

    Nayantara is just sheep ok, real buxom bovine is our one and only Namitha! See my post, we are demanding the statue of liberty be morphed into Namithaaaaaaaaaa!

  7. I saw Kuruvi and was completely bowled out. People make curries vegetables and masala, Kuruvi was made only with masala on masala. Yes, We can probably name such kind of movies as "Masala on Masala" genre :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Actually, this is a bad copy of a Hindi movie called Soldier starring Bobby and Priety.


    I personally like the songs. "Dadyy mummy" is good. "Vaada Maappula vazhaka thopula" is catchy. Of course, it does help that I don't follow all the tam in the songs.

    And you dint mention Vadivelu. Could it get any sillier?

    3. The red strap around the second cow
    4. The cow on the right is thinner
    5. The cow on the right has a stylist
    6. The cow on the right can act
    :D

    :D muchos gracias btw!

    @nandini
    thanks nanduuu! :)

    @max
    Lol, I read that post, yet to comment though, and the climax, dude, where did her tatoo go?

    @maduraiveeran
    I think i wrote a review on kuruvi too somewhere. I love to review vijay movies. They make me feel like god :D

    @ram
    Songs were nice, its just that the lyrics are fulll matter, esp vaada maapila song! :D, I htink it ocmes right after one matter bit w/ vijya and nayan. Aiyoyo, that lady gives me nightmares.
    And vadivelu, aiyo, he was sooo unwanted. Especially that monkey-vazhapazham bit. Worstest movie this was. Nee variya? Poi prabhu deva veetla poi rendu sengal thookipodlaam? :D

  10. Wonderful post to celebrate the 100th flavor of Chutney! Way to go girl!
    And I loved all the top 5 reasons... speaking about the universal facts that the songs are trying to convey, they remind me of TR the Terror! Are they trying to compete with him?

    Good to know that somebody is writing sensible reviews about such movies :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think the movie is for the greater good. Soon Lollu Sabha will come up with an episode on Villu (titled Jollu? Lollu?) that may even upstage the brilliance of Bakery.

    So seeing Villu is like an investment. When the Lollu Sabha episode comes, its payback time:)

  12. Thnx for the warning about this 'superlative' movie.

    I wish someone warned me like this before I watched 'Parat Azhage Sundaram' yesterday...Pls Kill me!!!

    You have a lovely blog here Chutney and I'm one of them who look forward to your posts here for a good laugh:D

  13. Any Vijay movie review is a treat to read.

    And after reading your older posts me was really curious about this .

    Great post.You seemed to have put the bovine lady in spot than vijay himself.

    Congrats on the century.Great blog with so much of good humour ! Keep it coming

  14. heh! that last point reminded me of a Thalaivar song "pullu kudutha paalu kudukum, athu unnale mudiyathu thambi"...

  16. Hey

    Congrats on the century....keep 'em flowing!

    And like Ram here said, I like the music - for me, its because my 2 yr old dances to it and yeah and also because they are peppy.

    Never listened carefully for the words though! So much matter eh?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hey, Congrats on the 100th post! Thanx for the warning! I have 5 more reasons not to watch the movie!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Jollu! You wrote 100 posts! Congrats! Now, where is my treat :)

    Villu = bow not arrow! Villu na soyin soyin = a bow makes that soyin sound when you pull the string and let it loose, na :)

    Thanks to the local trainers who control the music system at my gym, I am now well acquainted with all the songs in Villu!

    I like one bit in that Vaada Mapilai song - where the lyrics go, "vinnodum mugilodum vilyaadum vennilaave..." the tune is catchy.

    And that Daddy mummy song is apparently a copy of a Telugu song from Shankar Dada MBBS!

    And Nayantara isn't a cow, ok? She was kind of pretty in Billa (ok, I only saw the trailer.)

    ReplyDelete
  19. "Sa Ri Ga Ma Pa Da Ni sa... Come on Come on hey Jalsaa" - Idha vida ungalukku enna soulful lyrics and music venum??? :P

    Villu... Powerfullu.. :D

    Btw, congrats on ur 100th post :)

  20. hi mokka rani,

    the 'not' in the title makes little sense to me. either one satirizes or one is earnest. why the state of in-betweenness? and i know you don't like me when i say stuff like this, but i have to for if i don't i won't be being me. catch my point?

    2nd, yes, i share your feelings regarding the movie. i saw the trailer and i knew this movie was inspired by that great man, mr sam anderson. so free. (in fact, i can't believe prabhu deva let us down so royally. i always thought highly of his creativity).

    and regarding 9thara, i feel hurt and take exception to your attitude. not everyone need share your opinion regarding women you know. some ppl just like their girls bovine. why impose a feeling of superiority regarding your taste for women over that of the hardworking, common man out for his cheap thrills? unfair i tell you.

    and lastly, congrats on your 100. waiting for the full nelson.

    ReplyDelete
  21. omg! Why does everyone hate Nayan so much :--P

    Here is a facebook comment a friend had after watching the movie, "Villu- go watch it as soon as possible, it might be taken off of theaters sooner than you think" ! :--)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hahhahahaaa.. Nayan and the cow sooper comparison!
    Congrats on your 100th post! I am still on my 6th :(

  23. @naren
    Happy to help :D

    @Aparna
    Thanks so much and no, they are not competing with TR simply because you just can't compete with a guy like him (Padayappa abbas style - whatta man!)

    @Ram
    Actually ippo Lollu Sabha is semmma kadi! Theres no santhanam, no manohar....only that bakery guy is there. So orey the bore, and hence they are playing all old episodes. But a movie like villu doesnt need a parody, its a parody by itself! Comedy-kkey comedy a? :P

    @Alwayshappykya
    thanks so much :)

    @sathya
    thanks :)

    @SRK
    LOL! Vandheeeenda paalkaaaran, adadaaa! I love that song for reasons more than one (Idling, I know you're winking with me for this!). And you get a cookie for pointing out difference no 7.

    @neon
    Its daddy mummy veetil illa, lol. I think prabhu deva saw veerasamy and got inspired by TR to take up so many er, responsibilities. Its hard not to be inspired by TR (padayappa abbas style again - whatte man!)

    @sowmya
    thanks! :) Actually the innuendo becomes apparent only after seeing the movie. And once its realized, vadikattina perverts like me can't help but associate that meaning to the song :D

    @padmaja
    thanks :)

    @idling
    yes yes, i wrote 100! You're proud of me no? :D And hello! although there was a technical fault there I know what the meaning was (villu na sying soyin). Its just that the lyrics were so lame and deplorable. Next thing you know, we'll be hearing things like yepam na urp urrp or sexxu na aah aaah (SJ Suryah will use this line, bet) or...you know me, I can continue grossing people out but I stop since this is public forum :P :D I dont want my image of chamathu ponnu to be tarnished :P

    @Maverick blog
    Lol! Whatay thathuvam! and thanks :)

    @chokkathangam
    I was waiting for this!
    wrt to point no 1. I have always been something of an inbetween character. I'm a good girl, but not THAT good. In betweeness is a part of me, just like nitpicking is a part of yours :P. Hence i feel obliged to be myself, which is clearly conveyed through the title.
    wrt to point no 2. I agree.
    wrt to point no 3, well I guess its a south indian male thing, to want their women well proportioned. "Tamil naatu ilaignargallukke konjam gunda irundha dhaan pudikkum...gundu dhaan enakku pudicha size-u.." - Vivek said that in dum dum dum i think. Ok, have your women well proportioned, but please don't give them bikinis. If you do, then don't rate the movie as U or U/A, cause watching it requires immense strength of heart.
    And finally, thanks :)

    @SK
    We don't hate nayan, we just want her to wear clothes :D
    And your friend is totally totally right!

  25. hey. i feel like an idiot. actually not like any idiot. an idiot who makes a joke that no one laughs for.

    when i said full nelson, i meant 101. but turns out, full nelson is 111. and did you know, anytime the score was 111, david shepherd used to do a little hop and skip for some darn reason? just an interesting side fact.

    anyway, i was telling you about this joke that no one laughed at.
    "..feeling of superiority regarding YOUR TASTE FOR WOMEN over that of the hardw..." was what i said. howcome you didn't notice that? or did you simply not find it interesting or out of the ordinary? hey, wait a sec.. could this really mean.. amean, could it be true that....?!? (hey don't get me wrong. i have really liberal views. i never discriminate.)

  38. i agree, except # 5. i thought nayan was ultra hot. too much make up, yes, but her costumes were fantastic (add to the fact that the low waist kept me waiting, with baited breath of course)

    makes me wonder - are you jealous chutney? :D
