Review: 'Sivaji 3D'
Watching superstar Rajnikanth sizzle on screen despite how clichéd it appears, as some may call it, is an experience worth a million smiles and the thumping of as many hearts.
Now, watching him recreate the magic in 3D, closer to hands-reach, is an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Released five years after its original release in 2007, 'Sivaji 3D', with shorter running time, cut down by half an hour, is highly entertaining and three times visually enthralling.
The impeccable conversion from 2D to 3D is truly amazing and at par with Hollywood standards. All those who've always cribbed about poorly executed Indian 3D films should not miss 'Sivaji 3D' at any cost. Had it not been for the successful collaboration between AVM productions, Prasad EFX and Real Image, this visual wonder wouldn't have been possible.
The opening song "Balleilakka", featuring Nayantara, is a treat to watch and so are scenes involving Shriya, who appears prettier than she was originally. It doesn't matter if you're a Rajni fan or not, you're sure to leave the theatre with sore throat from screaming.
Tharani's sets come alive in 3D, while K.V. Anand's cinematography, originally done using 4k scan, a very high video format resolution, has certainly helped the film look superior in the converted version.
And to top it all, you have moments of Rajnism that you can guiltlessly celebrate with everybody. Be it his trademark walk or the dialogues that he mouths with ease and style or even scenes where he pounds baddies to pulp with one punch.
And all this happens just few inches away from your eyes and probably with a wave of the hand; you might probably touch the superstar.
Finally, to watch the film in Dolby Atmos, an object-based audio platform, will truly give the audiences a life-like, sensory experience. With 'Sivaji 3D', the Tamil film industry is sure to garner a lot of attention from the rest of the world.
But the biggest question that needs answering is will 'Sivaji 3D' pave the way to the re-conversion of many successful films into 3D? If yes, how many will succeed in the process?
