Beast Review : Senseless Hostage Drama !

Beast Movie Review

Beast Movie Review

Telugu360 Rating 2/5

Story

ISI terrorists take hostage of 150 people in East Coast Mall, Chennai. The terrorists demand release of their leader Umar Farooq who is in Indian prison. Ex-RAW Agent Veera Raghavan is one of the hostages who swings into rescue operation. Rest of the film is how the rescue operation goes on.

Analysis

In general, the hostage dramas don’t fit for a larger-than-life mass hero on Indian screen. Film industry and audience hoped Sun Pictures, Nelson and Vijay team might break the rules with an engaging plot. Trailer hinted at a subtle humor laced thriller on the cards, but it has ended up another way. Narrating this thin plot film with linear screenplay is a good decision. Hostage theme films require smart writing to help convincingly narrate the rescue operations which is something sorely lacking in the film Beast.

With such a serious main plot, inserting any comedy is a double-edged sword. Director Nelson’s strength to generate humor is serious situations didn’t work this time. It is indigestible to see the comedy scenes by the hostages as if they are at picnic table. Over the top sequences are designed for Veera Raghavan are merely aimed at fans and fail to appeal to the average audience. Initial portions of the first half are engaging with the terrorist operations, Arabic Kuthu song and up until the main hostage drama begins. The graph goes down as the film progress from here. The Home Minister character, in charge of the rescue operations, leader of the terrorists and pretty much every character is irritating. The terrorists are shown as very harmless people, they barely hurt the hostages, and Veera was never challenged. None of the hijackers have any characterization. Climax is unbelievably silly – Veera goes to Pakistan, nabs the terrorist chief, brings him to India through Pakistan Airspace and as a bonus he pilots Sukhoi fighter jets – facepalm moment.

Performances

Vijay as usual is very fine in the two dance numbers. He excels in style and mannerisms. Except for the two songs, Pooja Hegde has no role in the film, and she is paid just for sitting around.

Production values by Sun pictures are very good. Anirudh’s background score is excellent and so is Manoj Paramhamsa’s cinematography. Frames are vibrant and rich. Dance director Jaani master has done good work. Though the technical departments are good, the poor direction and script have damaged the film beyond hope.

Positives

  • Vijay’s styling
  • Anirudh’s Background Score
  • Arabic Kuthu Song

Negatives

  • A stupid plot and poor direction
  • Too many over the top scenes
  • Irritating comedy in hostage situation

Verdict

BEAST is a farcical and stupid film that occasionally plays to the peanut galleries. Fans of Vijay might find it passable, for others this hostage action-comedy film doesn’t make the cut. Best to avoid.

Madras HC expunges adverse remarks against actor Vijay

0

The Madras High Court on Tuesday expunged the adverse remarks made by a single bench of the court against actor Vijay in a case related to the import of a luxury car from the UK.

A division bench of Justices Pushpa Sathyanarayana and Mohammed Shaffiq said that the remarks made in certain paragraphs of the order of the single judge stand expunged.

Another division bench of Justices M. Duraiswamy and R. Hemalatha on July 26, 2021 stayed the order of the single bench of Justice S.M. Subramaniam on July 13, 2021.

The single judge bench had made adverse remarks against Vijay for seeking exemption of tax for his Rolls Royce Ghost imported from the UK and also imposed a cost of Rs 1 lakh on the actor.

Vijay had moved an appeal through senior advocate and former Tamil Nadu Advocate General Vijay Narayanan against the order of the single bench.

Counsel had argued that the adverse remarks made by the single bench of the Madras High court had hurt the actor and in several other cases, the court had rejected similar pleas of tax exemption but had not made such adverse remarks.

Actor Vijay fans to contest TN local body polls

0

Tamil Superstar Vijay’s fans association, Vijay Makkal Manram has decided to field candidates in the upcoming local body elections to be held on October 6 and October 9 in nine districts.

Sources in the Vijay fan association told IANS that the actor has given them consent to contest the polls, but would not participate in the campaign. The flag of the association and Vijay’s photos would be used extensively during the campaign.

In the 2021 Assembly elections, Vijay’s father and actor director, S. Chandrashekhar had floated a political party in the name of Vijay fans association and had announced contesting the elections. However, Vijay openly came out against his father’s move and said that he is against contesting the elections and that he would not have anything to do with the same.

Now, after his fan’s association announcing contesting the polls, there is clear indication that Vijay, the young superstar has thrown his hat in the ring.

C. Rajeev of the Centre for Policy and Development Studies, a think tank and a political observer, told IANS,” Vijay’s fans contesting the elections is a clear indicator that Vijay in the near future will take a call in contesting polls. With Super megastar Rajinikanth announcing that he won’t enter politics, Vijay’s fans making this announcement will be an interesting turn in the politics of Tamil Nadu, which has always supported actors entering politics.”

Right from C.N. Annadurai, the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu to Chief Ministers — M.G.Ramachandran, J. Jayalalithaa, and M. Karunanidhi — all were associated with the film world. While Annadurai and Karunanidhi were powerful scriptwriters, M.G. Ramachandran and J. Jayalalithaa were popular actors from the state.

Superstars Kamal Haasan and Vijaykanth are already in politics after having floated their own outfits — Makkal Needhi Maiam(MNM) and Desiya Murpoku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) — respectively and had contested the Assembly elections. The MNM will be testing the waters of the rural local body polls and Kamal Haasan has announced that he would be extensively campaigning in the elections.

Real Reasons: Why are Kollywood actors focused on Telugu Cinema?

0

Several Tollywood actors tried to succeed in Tamil cinema and tested their luck. But most of them ended up unsuccessful. But Tamil actors like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Suriya, Vikram, Ajith, Karthi, Vishal, Vijay, Dhanush and others made up decent market and headed for simultaneous release in Telugu along with Tamil. Most of them lost their market because of the poor show of their films. The latest trend is that actors like Vijay, Dhanush and Suriya are signing straight Telugu films. Dhanush has signed four Telugu projects in a row. All these four films will be directed by Telugu directors.

Vijay will work with Vamshi Paidipally soon and Suriya will work with Boyapati Srinu next year. The film fraternity and the audience are left in shock with the sudden move. Going deep into the issue, after the arrival of the pandemic, most of the active producers of Tamil turned inactive. There are hardly 4-5 production houses that are keen to produce films with stars. Also, the Tamil market is badly hit in all the available ways because of the pandemic. The non-theatrical rights too are not fetching huge prices like in the past and the actors are asked to slash down their remuneration.

But things are different in Tollywood. The asking prices for the non-theatrical prices are increased and the entire nation is focused on Telugu films. The Telugu producers are also welcoming neighboring stars and are paying huge remunerations. This would be a golden opportunity for Vijay, Dhanush as they can expand their market in Telugu states and cement their position in Tollywood. They are even drawing a huge remuneration which is higher than the pay they are getting in Tamil. Hence, the Tamil stars are now focused on Tollywood and are keen to work with Telugu directors and producers.
