Aadhi known as Hip hop Thamizha in his twenties, has ventured upon a rap mixed genre of music with Tamil words bearing the Afro American musical notes, in association with his musical mate Jeeva. Flying his alien musical wings from behind the scenes he has now flown into the fairy land of Tamil cinema,After making some soundtrack contribution to films like Aranmanai,Aambala and Thani Oruvan,Aadhi has now come to display his versatile skills in acting ,composing music and dialogues and in direction through his debut film Meesaya Murukku,under the production of Sundar C, the multi faceted Tamil film personality.
Films on School and College life, with their inherent attributes of ragging, friendship and calf love are there in plenty, as part of the variety component of Tamil Cinema.There were trend setting films on these aspects such as Late Balu Mahendra's Azhiyadha Kolangal and Thangar Pachan's Pallikoodam showing the vagaries of adolescence in different dimensions.Tamil cinema's entries on college campuses, are so numerous, that it would be quite a lot to talk about.Similarly movies on career aspirations have made indelible impressions through Vikraman's Pudhu Vasandham and Ajith's Mugavari.So this almost autobiographical film entry of Aadhi cannot be expected to make wonders with the audience.
But still it makes wonders on one count.The courage of a man who is yet to see his thirties to take up the onus of too many tasks of film making on his shoulders and making his first project a watchable show, doing visible justice to all the tasks he has taken up. make the film a wonderful outcome.The most awesome thing is the impression he gives, as if he has acted in a dozen films and knows his job by the tip of his fingers.Each generation wants to do something different or at least do the same thing differently.Hip hop Aadhi hardly fails to deliver the relevant emotions in all the scenes.His dialogue delivery is absolutely natural and he dances at ease.His musical scores create the intended effect and his focus on the humor element of the film successfully takes the film on the humor track.So Aadhi succeeds both as an actor and film maker.
The next positive aspect of the film is the role of Vivek as the father of Aadhi. From a Comedian Vivek has transformed into a character actor in the line of K.A.Thangavelu and Nagesh.The last time I fully enjoyed his comedy show was in Danush starring Uthama Puthiran.In Radha Mohan's Brindhavanam he appeared as himself and delivered a character role mixed up with humor. Vivek is one of my pet comedians and I do enjoy seeing him in character roles of this kind and talking proudly about the grandeur of Tamil.If only Hip hop Thamizha also comes out with songs like 'Thamizhan Enroru Inamundu Thaniye Adharkor Gunamundu' ,'Thamizhukkum Amudhenru Per' and 'Thamizha Thamizhaa Naalai Un Naale',it would add more meaning to the language and the race.Perhaps Hip hop Thamizha wants to take Tamil closer to the global instinct, by mixing Tamil words with alien tunes.May be this is what the new generation expects and Aadhi has presumably felt the pulse of his generation.With these factors in mind, let us congratulate Aadhi and welcome him as another valuable addition to Tamil Cinema.
