In the recent past, Karthi has suffered because of choosing mediocre scripts. When Rajesh announced that his next film will be with Karthi in the lead, movie buffs expected this fresh combination to come up with a refreshing entertainer. However, ‘Al in All Azhagu Raja’ is far from that. Read on to know why.

Plot

Raja aka Azhagu Raja (Karthi) is the managing director of a local TV channel, that has only one more employee apart from him, which is Kalyanam (Santhanam). The duo try their best to generate revenue for their channels, but most of their attempts fail. In a parallel track, Raja falls in love with Devi Priya (Kajal Agarwal) at the drop of a hat. After a series of events, Kajal also falls for Raja. However, Raja’s father Muthu (Prabhu) has his own reasons to stop the marriage. In the flashback, the love episode between Muthu (played by Karthi) and Meenakshi (Radhika Apte) is shown and the reason why they had to part ways. The rest of the plot shows if Raja and Devi Priya unite.

Performances

Karthi definitely needs to explore different kind of roles. His acting is getting monotonous with each film and he also needs to tone down his body. There are few scenes in which he scores brownie points, but they are few and far apart. Kajal looks beautiful in traditional costumes. However, her role is limited to some mediocre singing and dancing acts in this commercial entertainer.

Santhanam overuses certain dialogues in the movie, which irk the audience. Even his one-liners are not his best, due to the unengaging screenplay. On the other hand, MS Bhaskar‘s cameo does manage to provide some laughable moments. Radhika Apte has her moments in the film, especially in the ‘Unnai Partha Neram‘ song. Prabhu, Saranya, Narain and others have stereotyped roles.

Technicalities

Under Thaman’s music, ‘Unnai Partha Neram‘ and ‘Yaarukum Sollama’ are hummable. The background score is far from being catchy and gets too loud at times. Sakthi Saravanan‘s camera work is nothing to rave about. Vivek Harshan’s editing could have been much better. Some of the scenes seem to never end at all. For instance, the conversation between Karthi, Kajal and Narain in the second half tests your patience.

Direction – Rajesh

After a hat-trick of hits, M Rajesh misses the trick this time around. Although all his previous movie had wafer-thin story-line and relied completely on Santhanam, those movies had scope for Santhanam to take over the spotlight. In this movie, most of his jokes and one-liners fall flat, due to lack of interesting screenplay. M Rajesh definitely needs to think beyond relying completely on Santhanam.

The scenes involving Santhanam‘s feminine makeover and Kota Srinivasa Rao get too repetitive. The flashback, which is set in 1980, does not provide the necessary impact. With a running time of about 2 hours and 54 minutes and only a handful of funny moments, the movie requires a lot of patience to sit through.

Bottomline

All in All Azhagu Raja‘ is director M Rajesh‘s first miss after hat-trick of hits.

  1. Raghu says

    All in All Azhaguraja created some level of curiosity due to a number of successful combos coming together — 1. Director Rajesh & Santhanam(SMS,BeB,OKOK), 2. Karthi & Santhanam(Siruthai), 3. Karthi and Kajal(Naan Mahan Alla). It is expected that the inter-chemistry between the actors under Rajesh’s direction could spark off a perfect laugh riot. Unfortunately, the movie ‘All in All’ falls flat.

    Plot

    Kajal tries to make it big in performing arts(singing and dancing) and Karthi makes fun of her and discourages her saying she is not good enough. Finally the hero is proved correct as Kajal fails in every single thing she attempts, including suicide attempts. After almost 150 minutes, Karthi convinces her in the end that the best she could do is be a “responsible” house-wife which by itself is an achievement in this day and age. In order to deliver this ‘rich’ point across, Rajesh includes a bunch of Santhanam comedy scenes, Karthi-wooing-Kajal scenes and family feud scenes to bundle this into a full-length comedy drama.

    Story, Screenplay and Direction?

    Director Rajesh must have thought he could deliver his 4th continuous hit by relying purely on Santhanam comedy mounted on a wafer-thin storyline. The law of averages has eventually caught up with Rajesh in All in All Alaguraja. Due to poor screenplay, the movie has no engaging scenes from beginning to end. There are a couple of highlights in the movie — second half flashback scenes when Karthi impersonates Prabhu is interestingly conceived. There is a minor twist towards the end that resolves the central dispute between the two warring families.

    Cast and Comedians

    It is unfortunate that the successful combo of Rajesh and Santhanam could not deliver any memorable comedy sequence in the entire movie. Santhanam’s one-liners fail big this time. Most of thecharacters often over-react and mouth long dialogues making the audience restless.

    Karthi continues with his usual modulations and dialogue delivery patterns. But, Karthi should be commended for his commitment and excellent impersonation of actor Prabhu in the flash-back sequence. Kajal acts as the typical dumb heroine usually seen in Tamil movies. Kajal has acted without applying any‘kajal’nevertheless plastering a layer of bright makeup. She provides the right set of expressions expected from a heroine in mass commercial movies.

    Music and Technicalities

    Rajesh’s past movies are backed by hit songs and good technical values. Thaman has delivered a couple of hum-worthy songs (unnai partha neram, chellam). However, Thaman’s BGM is clueless in a number of scenes. Thaman could not be blamed since he could only do so much to save a failing scene. Technically, Cinematography looks sloppy with inconsistent lighting and static shots. The costume and make-up departments have done a relatively good job in bringing the early 80s look of Karthi, Santhanam and Radhika Apte.

    The editor probably didn’t have enough raw footage to work with. The shots goes on forever without going for a cut or any edits. One such example is the long drawn-out sequence and dialogues when Karthi falls unconscious (scared after seeing Kajal striking a “Chandramukhi” pose…not kidding!).

    Director’s Premonition

    There is an interesting coincidence in a scene set in 1980 involving Karthi (as young Prabhu) and Santhanam (as theatre manager) betting on which movie to secure rights to release for Diwali of 1980 in their theatres. Santhanam strongly recommends to buy the rights of actor Sudhakar’s movie“Thai Pongal” while Karthi suggests the theatre owner, Nassar, to buy newcomer Rajni’s “Billa”. Santhanam even pokes fun by calling Rajni and Kamal as fads while confidently calling actor Sudhakar as the real deal. Nasser the theatre owner, decides to buy Santhanam’s pick of “Thai Pongal” which eventually turn out to become a flop while Billa becomes a runaway hit in 1980.

    Will “All in All Azhaguraja” turn out to be the “Thai Pongal of 2013″?

    All In All Azhagu Raja Story of small town Ambasamuthiram, Azhagu Raja (Karthi) one only son for Prabhu and Saranya, he runs local channel namely “All in All” . He has Santhanam as his assistant, he plays adamant role and because of Santhanam, Karthi faces some problem.
    Sithra Devi (Kajal) tries to make it big in performing arts and Karthi makes fun of her and discourages her saying she is not good enough. Finally the hero is proved correct as Kajal fails in every single thing she attempts, including suicide attempts. Karthi convinces her in the end.

  3. Y rajesh says

    The story of All in All Azhagu Raja is too lengthy and mainly banks on the comedy part. Precisely on Santhanam. Karthi definitely needs to explore different kind of roles. His acting is getting monotonous with each film and he also needs to tone down his body.
    After a hat-trick of hits, Rajesh misses the trick this time around. Although all his previous movie had wafer-thin storyline and relied completely on Santhanam, those movies had scope for Santhanam to take over the spotlight. In this movie, most of his jokes and one-liners fall flat, due to lack of interesting screenplay. Rajesh definitely needs to think beyond relying completely on Santhanam.
