Movie Review: Dishyum
Posted by Sankar on February 27, 2006
In a nutshell: Definitely worth a watch!!!
The movie has been out for a while now. But I just had the chance to watch it this weekend. Wish I had watched it earlier instead of movies like Paramasivan and Kalabak Kaadhalan.
The movie revolves around ‘Risk’ Baskar (Jeeva) who is a stunt artist and Cinthya (Sandhya) an art student. Baskar is a take it easy character who is very popular in the stunt world for this daring stunts in the movies. He meets Cinthya and falls in love with her. Cinthya rejects and explains that she is just a friend. Baskar tries to be her friend, but realizes that it is something more than that and confesses his love to Cinthya. Cinthya asks him to wait to see if she also falls in love with him.
For a change, Cinthya’s parents give the go-ahead for the love marriage. While Baskar waits for Cinthya’s approval, the movie takes a turn and things march towards the climax.
The director has done a great job to give a clean entertainer. The screenplay is pretty decent and the movie does not get on your nerves at any point.
A couple of songs are melodious and good on the ears. After a long time, the movie has a very good comedy track (not a separate comedy track) provided by Baskar’s sidekick in the movie (a dwarf) and it is really refreshing after sitting though Vadivelu and Vivek for a while now. After a long time, I can literally laugh for some comedy. No double meaning jokes. Really straightforward and simple jokes. The comedy is definitely a plus for the movie.
Do watch it if you get a chance. You won’t regret it.
