alex-pandianActor Karthi’s choice of films off-late has been quite a disappointment. Having had a golden run at the box-office with his initial films, his last film “Saguni” turned out to be a cropper and that’s when his latest release “Alex Pandian” had generated lot of interest. This film was touted to be an all-round mass entertainer and he pairing with Anushka for the first time, the hype over this film was enormous.

The film on paper might have looked pretty impressive but on screen, one can say this film will be amongst Karthi’s worst films of his career. If “Saguni” was termed as a nothing film, in comparison to this “Alex Pandian” that film will have to be rated as a far better one.

The opening scene does generate a huge interest on the story line but even that scene to have its head and tail identified takes long into the film to come. Comedian Santhanam is known to be a crowd puller but running the first-half of the film with only his comedy sequences (some sequences gets repeated) is asking for too much.

Director Suraaj after his disappointing “Mappillai” was expected to come up with a better storyline but instead he has come up with an even worse product than his previous film. Karthi’s role in the film is very aloof and suddenly post-interval he decides to turn into a full-fledged action hero which was expected but it proves to be too much beyond realism for the audience. The stunts are outdated and so are the villains in Milind Soman and Suman.

Anushka as the heroine barring a few scenes, seems to be there only for a couple of songs with one of them being a glam affair. There are a host of other stars like Visu, Prathap Pothen, Renuka, Manobala, Santhanabarathi Nikita Thukral and others. Almost all actors seems to be going through the motions as there is nothing significant to mention. Music by DSP is lackluster except for the “Bad Boy” song.

With a running time of 160 minutes, this film is sure to see the end of tunnel shortly. Thanks to Kamal Hassan’s “Viswaroopam” not releasing for Pongal, this film had garnered to get additional screens which could somewhat help its distributors cut down on their losses.

“Alex Pandian” is a full-fledged disappointment.
