The speculations for 7aum Arivu were exorbitant since it was from the trio Surya-A.R.Murgadoss and Harris Jayaraj who gave a remarkable blockbuster movie Ghajini. This movie is completely different from their earlier flick and Murugadoss has deftly presented the movie .
The movie is actually about Bodhi Dharman (Surya) an expert at martial arts, medicine hypnotism who travels to China on his mother’s order. In China he saves the village against a deadly disease. Being an expert at Nooku varma (hypnotism) he also fights for the village against the enemies. But, finally he dies and he is worshipped. Arvindh (Surya) is a suave acrobat working in Bombay Circus. He hails from Kanchipuram who falls in love with a genetic engineering student Subha (Shruthi Hassan) who is doing a research on Bodhi Dharman. On the other side Dong Lee (John Tri Nugyen) who is adept at martial arts, hypnotism is sent to India on a clandestine mission “Operation Red”. For the rest watch out the film.
Suriya has a complete makeover in this film. He has worked hard on his expressions and has given a commendable performance. Shruthi Hassan has does justice to her role. Ravi.K.Chandran’s camera work steals the show capturing exotic locales in his lens. The climax scene is fantastic sends a chill down your spine. The film has entrancing numbers by Harris Jayaraj which are already chartbusters. Overall the film is worth a watch.
Murugadoss has made an audacious attempt to make us agog about our ancestors and it is worth a watch.
