Film review: 7aum Arivu
Share This Article:
The long awaited Tamil film 7aum Arivu, starring Surya Sivakumar was released on 26th October (Diwali) everywhere in the world. However, with hit releases such as Ayan (2009) Aadhavan and Singam (2010) has this film a quadruple home run for Kollywood’s favourite hunk? The actor has agreed to once again work with A.R. Muragadoss, who was responsible for making Ghajini in 2005 which was such a hit that he ended up remaking the film in Hindi for Aamir Khan. The film also stars Shruti Hassan- the daughter of Kamal Hassan and Hollywood stunt actor Johnny Tri Nguyen as the villain. The film first told the story about the legend of Bodhi Dharman, a man who went to China in order to teach the martial art now known as Shaolinquan and medicine in order to cure the Chinese villagers. The film then goes to modern day, where a circus performer Aravind (also played by Surya) is forced to revive as Bodhi Dharman through DNA by scientist Subha (played by Hassan) after Shaolinquan master Dong Lee (Nguyen) is sent by the Chinese government to impose ‘Operation Red’. This film had everything going for it. I like Surya, I like A.R.Muragadoss and the plot above sounded incredibly interesting. And it was.... for like the first half hour.
