Poojai – Movie Review…


Poojai which is directed by Hari and produced by Vishal, who himself plays the lead role alongside an ensemble cast featuring Shruti Haasan, Sathyaraj, Raadhika Sarathkumar and Mukesh Tiwari.

If you have watched any of Hari’s film before, this film also has the same plot. For others, the movie is about how protagonist wins over the antagonist against all odds.

It is sad to see Vishal do this loud film, after doing couple of good films recently. He plays his part well, in spite of choosing a tedious script. Shruti Haasan is used as a glam doll in songs, and she is a part of few chase sequences as well. Soori does provide few giggles, although the jokes look downright silly.

Sathyaraj has been given a good Police officer role, sans much of screen time. Jayaprakash, Radhika Sarathkumar and Thalaivasal Vijay are used as fillers to take the story forward.

Yuvan’s songs are pretty average and so is his background score. He is yet to get back to his mesmerizing best. But, he cannot be solely blamed, as the script doesn’t offer anything new for him to produce some interesting music. Cinematographer Priyan has really toiled hard for this film, as there are endless scenes that come one after the other and most of them travel at breakneck speed. Editing is functional and makes you forget the previous scene in a blink.

Direction – Hari
After tasting success with his previous ventures, director Hari just doesn’t want to try something new or deviate from his formula. While that can be termed as a safe bet, it also means the audience have to sit through the same stereotypical proceedings for over 2.5 hours, with just the title and casting changed from his previous films.

The movie starts off on a very tedious note and the item song with Andrea looks absolutely unnecessary.The other songs also do not please you much. The screenplay lacks logic and the fight sequences defy gravity. Dialogues are pedestrian and sometimes irritating too. The family sentiment scenes have been witnessed in numerous films before, and do not create a strong impact. Overall, there is nothing new in this film, that warrants a watch.
