Attagaasam

AJIT HAS not disappointed his fans in Vijayam Cine Combines' "Attagaasam". The film once again proves the screenplay writing talent of Saran who has not only made the film in a short span of time but has also intelligently tied up nearly all the loose ends of the film with so many characters. For Ajit it is a dual role and he has done both characters as differently as possible. As the screenplay itself does not give the director much scope to show the characters in different getups it is only with performance one can do justice and Ajit has not let down his director. One does not wish to see Ajit in the role of a don, as he is so sweet as the son of Sujatha, who has his own driving school. The other Ajit is a dada in Tuticorin. The look-alikes exchange places and how it confuses the other characters in the film is shown with interesting twists and turns by the director. Ajit does both the characters with ease. He has to watch his tummy, though.

Pooja has very little to do except run behind Ajit and sing sweet songs in foreign locations. Ramesh Kanna as the friend of the Don Ajit makes people laugh. Babu Antony comes in a flash back and later in the second half but makes little impact as the villain. It is Mahadevan and Jasper who by way of their body language try to create an impact. Ilavarasu is a man for all seasons and fits into any role with ease. Sujatha as the mother is convincing. `Nizhalgal' Ravi, VMC. Hanifa, Karunaas, Vaiyapuri, Manobala and Ilavarasan are also in the cast. Two technicians take the film to a higher plane and they are cameraman A. Venkatesh and music director Bharadwaj. Bharadwaj has improved his re-recording very much. Director Saran's two previous films with Ajit were hits and this will also follow suit.
