Nelson’s Quirky Sense of Humour Vs. Vijay’s Macho Unsettles The Movie’s Progress

Forged: Vijay, Pooja Hedge, Selvaraghavan, Aparna das, Yogi Babu, Redin Kingsley

Director: Nelson

Beast is directed by Nelson. The sooner two movies of Nelson made me notice that here’s a filmmaker with a way of favor of his personal. His earlier two movies — Kolamaavu Kokila and Physician — positively informed us that here’s a filmmaker who appears to be in good management of his script, the sort of performances he needs and the sorts of compositions that he manages to result in. He had a really quirky fashion of comedy, which actually impressed a whole lot of us. It jogged my memory of two filmmakers. Certainly one of them is, after all, Buster Keaton, the grasp and one other one is the French filmmaker Jacques Tati. 

Each these filmmakers had methods of telling a narrative through which the characters took themselves very severely, and went about their actions in ways in which they have been very concerned in, however the digital camera, the filmmakers and we see it in very humorous methods. We see the ridiculousness of their actions, we see the humorous aspect of their behaviour that’s so uncommon. It was one thing that jogged my memory of a beautiful filmmaker like Singeetam Srinivasa Rao who did the Kamal Haasan-starrer known as Pushpak, through which the characters undergo a whole lot of very critical episodes for themselves, however the audiences noticed it as filled with enjoyable. 

Nelson continues this custom of Pushpak and brings his movies nearer to absurd drama than any sort of emotional realism. And I feel that was his forte. Sadly, Beast watches the conflict of two distinct pathways. There may be Nelson’s fashion and there’s Vijay’s repertoire. And Vijay’s repertoire demanded a whole lot of bravado, 4 songs starting from typical mass enchantment Kuthu Paatu to very, very sentimental, romantic songs. His movies should have nice messages and a whole lot of household sentiment. Sadly, Beast is crushed at its personal recreation. 


To begin with, selecting to stage virtually a complete story in a single location requires monumental planning, storyboarding and pre-visualization and visualization. And that has not occurred. As an alternative, what you see is a unusual sense of humour, as demonstrated by Nelson versus Vijay’s macho scenes. Audiences need Vijay to dominate the scenes, however Nelson has his personal methods of placing in very, very aspect characters, they haven’t any consequence in any respect to the story, however in some way have the very best dialogues within the movie. 

Now this unsettles the movie’s progress within the story. If Nelson had some very quirky music types in his earlier two movies, this movie is dominated by Anirudh’s stereotypical music, excessive octane, excessive quantity, low buzz, and loud sound, which you see in most mainstream movies. If Nelson’s earlier works had vibrant ladies characters, this movie loses all of them.

It was actually unhappy to see a personality like Pooja Hegde, who got here in so highly effective at first dominating the scene, all of a sudden getting misplaced within the crowd. We’ve seen Vijay’s earlier movies, like Bigil, the place he had given a lot house to ladies. Finally, this movie has sincerely no house for girls in any respect. 

So coming again to Beast, I assumed there’s a whole lot of introspection to be achieved for myself. And so what did I study from this movie? One factor I realized positively is that doing a whole lot of earlier promos on kinds of social media helps push the movie ahead. In truth, I’ve by no means witnessed audiences sitting via the final merchandise tune through which they’d be strolling away, the place the credit score titles roll. However right here I noticed audiences sitting and watching the ‘Jolly O Gymkhana’ tune. It appears that evidently that they had been ready for the tune, due to all of the social media that they’ve witnessed. 


The second factor I realized was that Tamil cinema has now come to grasp a number of languages as their staple weight-reduction plan. So this movie has Hindi, Tamil, and English —  all being spoken very continuously. In truth, I discover it superb that these so-called Pakistani characters coming into India converse Tamil. And also you say “wow”. In truth, there are sequences the place English is dominating the entire thing. And once they converse Hindi, we do get Tamil subtitles. However it is rather attention-grabbing to see that Tamil cinema is now prepared to cope with different languages. 

Final however not the least, I’m positive a whole lot of terminal audiences would have left the movie theatre to go and verify within the dictionary – What’s the actual that means of beast? I requested at the very least 100 Tamil individuals within the final week in the event that they know the that means of beast. They don’t know the that means. It’s good to go see a movie with a title they don’t even learn about however they’ll return and research English. So I feel to that extent we have now to credit score these sorts of movies for permitting literacy to develop, a way or the opposite. So in case you are glad with the promos on YouTube and varied social media of Beast, I feel you must stay completely happy having seen them.
