Being a Suriya fan, I NEVER thought that I would be saying that I was disappointed with Mattrraann! I’m not denying that the movie do have its moments, especially in the first half of the movie, but are they enough to attain the blockbuster success of the movie, I personally don’t think so. Now I’m not going to reveal storyline of the movie here, but have to admit that Suriya is the only saving grace of the movie…without him, it would have been a below average movie!
And the second half of the movie was like watching another 7aum Arivu. While I was watching the movie, I was wondering why K.V Anand has chosen this story for Suriya immediately after 7aum Arivu…he could have made a better movie with better story line with Suriya. And in my perception, Suriya on the other hand, should stop repeating his directors from one movie to others. In the past 6 years, Suriya had 7 movies released, and worked with only directors Hari, K.V Anand, Gautham Menon, A.R.Murugadass and K.S Ravi Kumar and among all these directors, K.S.Ravikumar was the only director that Suriya worked for the first time.
And not to forget, his next two movies are with Hari and Gautham Menon again! Yes, I as fan do enjoy Suriya’s movies with all these directors, but after some time, I feel that things are getting very monotonous. Wonder why a talented actor like Suriya is hesitating too much to sign movies with other directors or give chances to new directors like how Kamal Hassan, Ajith, Vijay, Simbu and Dhanush frequently do?
And as for the music of the movie, is Harris Jayaraj who composed for Minnale, Samurai, Kaakha Kaakha, Vaaranam Aayiram, Unnale Unnale, Dhaam Dhoom and many others is the composer for Mattrraann also? Frankly speaking, I can never even imagine of comparing Vaaranam Aayiram to Maattrraann! If by any chance, Harris Jayaraj happens to read this email, I have a humble request for you…please don’t repeat your music in all your movies, PLEASE! Be more experimental sir, I’m sure we the Tamil movie fans would definitely encourage your experimental efforts if you can come up with classic albums like in your earlier days. I’m not trying to degrade anyone’s effort in this movie, but as movie lover, I’m just expressing my opinion about the movie and I wish that Suriya will be more experimental in choosing his directors in the future.
