2.Sivaji (2007) - This movie is one of the costliest one made in India,but we cannot expect jurrasic park,titanic or terminator because tamil film industry is more into business pressure rather then creativity.That too superstar Rajini,director Shankar both this celebrities want to safeguard their position rather then trying something new. I swear that this movie is not bad.The story is about the man Sivaji who wants to invest his money into social service,but politicians,rival enterpreneurs doesn't let him to do good(as per the rule of screenplay),he overcomes the troubles by making black money into white money in robinhood action style.The story is told reaaonably in good pace with good treat for eyes.Especially 5 songs were great,visually stunning.Next thing comes to our mind after songs in sivaji is Comedian vivek.He does good job.After this obviously some glimpses of rajini's style in the movie is also good.Action,romance scenes were average since it is not story oriented,its not gripping. Especially astrology related scenes,heroine letting down sivaji by trapping him into police were simply boring.The only question i have about this movie is why rajini is not fluent,comfortable,firing in all ways.I guess may be pressure riding 60crore business?Overall the movie is average,not a let down. The only question i have to director Shankar is,"Is there no story available to be told in entertaining way?Don't you feel innovation is primary yardstick of movie making.
