The nonsense that was Quick Gun Murugan

Posted: September 6, 2009 in Uncategorized

Like now that there is a theatre close to home, and time is always scarce, if we feel like a movie, we give in to the urge and just ‘dance on the chance’. Which was how I landed on the seat at 8-45 pm, having thought about a movie at 8-25 pm, and watching Quick Gun Murugan.

And at the end of 1.5 hours, and 2 Gold Class tickets and expensive coke and popcorn later, I felt like how most advertisers feel these days. Negative ROI. Did not get money’s worth!

Can you make a movie – even if it’s like a short one – on the strength of some one-liners alone? And not all of which are that funny too?! Did I lose it somewhere in the translation? Would it have been more fun for a Tamilian? Maybe, I guess! Would it have been more enjoyable if I had been a fan of the character from TV? I don’t think so. It was pathetic whichever way you see it. So all in all, what do I feel about this kind of cinema? Well, “I mind it”!

    The best thing I liked about the movie was my plate of Nachos and Salsa, thank you very much
