Aarambam is one of the latest movies released in Tamil cinema for this Diwali. Aarambam is a much hyped multi starrer with actor Ajith Kumar donning the lead role with the help of actor Arya. Leading ladies Nayanthara and Taapsee Pannu too have starred in important roles. Directed by Vishnuvardhan, Aarambam has come out stylishly although the movie has the tried and tested story coming along the line of corruption and revenge themes. What makes Aarambam work is the Ajith factor and crisply written screenplay by the director and writer duo SuBa.
Three bombings take place in popular malls in Mumbai and the police scratch their heads to find the culprit. The culprit turns out to Ashok Kumar (Ajith Kumar), whose motive is yet to be known. Ashok Kumar gets Arjun (Arya), a top computer hacker, to do a dirty job of hacking some important websites. Arjun has no other go but to surrender to the needs of Ashok Kumar, as his lover (Taapsee) is taken as a hostage by him. However, Arjun informs Ashok’s whereabouts and a sincere cop (Kishore) is one the run to catch Ashok and his team mates. What happens next?
First half of Aarambam keeps the audiences thoroughly entertained. There is suspense and thrill in many sequences and above all there is Ajith Kumar, who with his Salt and Pepper look keeps the audiences stick very much close to the proceedings. The slick editing and the neatly written screenplay with some really good twists near the interval promises a fantastic second half.
The director tries to keep the second half as interesting as possible, but the element of suspense and thrills go missing as the audiences become very well aware of the story. Some scenes lack a sense of importance. Songs too hamper the efforts of the editors. A disappointing and lengthy climax does not prove to be fitting end to Aarambam which really started off well.
Aarambam is not a very disappointing movie, but can be a big letdown for those who watch Hollywood flicks regularly!
