Then, one fine day, we had DON (SRK) and here comes BILLA(Ajith).
Whew! What a small world! Are people short of stories????
Anyways, my husband is a die hard "thala" fan. So, when we heard about Billa s remake, we bought a DVD of the old Billa. The old movie was good... with lots of twists in the story. But it was spoilt by overacting of some characters... I didnt enjoy the role done by Major Sundar Rajan and Thengai Srinivasan... Their over acting was just too much.
But overall, we enjoyed the movie. (cos we had the control to forward the songs - except title song and also the loooooooong fight scene).
We went for Billa 2007 day before yesterday night.
Very stylish one from VishnuVardhan. The costumes, the lights, the cars, the location... everything is good.
The movie is crisper than the old one as they ve cut Thengai Srinivasan s character. Unbelievably true... this character extended the story by about half an hour! Good decision on that. This one got over in abt 2 hours and 10 mts... unusual for a Tamil movie... :)
The director's wife (Anu vardhan) has done the costumes. Good job.
A very good entertainer. Go for this one yaar!
