பிரியாணி – போக போக சூடு

Biriyani – Venkat Prabhu’s Diet. Same old Venkat Prabhu MO. Just like in Saroja. Two close friends have fun in life and one being a Casanova and a total flirt. The other always getting beaten up because of this flirt. They stumble upon by accident on someone’s plan of becoming big and their life becomes messy. How they come out of it with the help of friends and find the real culprit. And yes, you will be led to believe that the culprit is one person but eventually it will be someone whom you would never think of.

What a train load of actors in this movie ? Toooo many known actors , even if it is a small role. Ramki making a comeback as a suspected villain. Madhumita coming back after a long hiatus as Karthi’s sister. Nasser having some fun here. Jodi No. 1 Prem as a police officer. The other usual gang of Venkat’s friends are in this movie too, even if they come for a scene. He never gives up on his friends. Jai, Akash, Mahat everyone are there. Uma Riyaz Khan as a hit woman. And of course Premji in his usual role as the hero’s friend, which is becoming a repeat and boring too. Same kind of dialogues for him, same actions, same reactions. Please change the MO Premji.

Karthi – one of very few actors whom I like. He is very easy on the eye. When I said this , one of my friend rolled his eyes so much that I thought it would have get stuck looking up. And he has cleaned up well in this movie 😉 .. And thankfully this movie of his is much better than his other movies (which I couldn’t even watch for a few mins.. ..just because he is good looking I cannot watch any pathetic movies of his…that is not me) And he is the flirt, Casanova, dear brother, main hero, loving friend et al.

First half was total drag. I couldn’t help but keep squirming in my seat to find a way out. The story gets all hot only after the interval. At times too much flirting also gets boring to watch. It has to be limited. But yes, those small incidents and how they are linked together at the end is well done. As usual, the screenplay is OK. And it doesn’t get too serious or too comical and hovers in between. Thank God they did not kill any of the family members for sympathy. I am so tired of that.  There are lot of loop holes, but in the second half the movie goes a little fast for you to even concentrate on it. Songs – No change in my views.

All in all, a total time pass masala movie with all flavors as you see in a biriyani  (a food item)

Biriyani – Music views

Biriyani

Looks like a typical Venkat Prabhu movie and the songs also suggest the same. I hope he doesn’t repeat GOA or Saroja here. No points for guessing who is the music director. Looks like Yuvan is losing his touch. All songs felt like I had heard it before in some of Venkat Prabhu’s movies. That is sad.

But of course, he will get a song or two to the top 5 without fail and if my guess is right, this time it will be Nah Nah Nah Naaaa.  And it has the touch of Mr Vaali. That guy always wrote lyrics which were way too young for his age :).  There are two remix versions of the same song in the album. Really ? Is that necessary ?

I like the starting music (is that flute?) of Biriyani theme song, sung by Tanvi. It has the mix of Tamil and English words to give the funky appeal. Its not great but I might end up hearing it more than once.

The rest of the songs , didn’t register much for me.

Pom Pom Penne – when I heard it, the last song from the movie Chicago came into my mind. I wonder why.
