Critic Review - L.A. Weekly

No shortage of violent action, wacky comedy and, of course, musical numbers - a three-hour head rush of cinematic delirium that couldn't have been made anywhere else in the world.

Thats a good review. This is the first time I see the review of a Tamil movie in RT. Dasavatharam is India's biggest movie, starring Kamal Haasan, in 10 different roles. Ulaga Nayakan Kamal Haasan who hails from the south India is an extremely talented and gifted actor. In a glorious career spanning 30 years, he has acted in more than 200 movies in all major Indian languages. He enjoys a status of a demi-god status in South India and every movie of his is expected and received warmly by his loyal fans. Dasavatharam was released on 13th June(not 20th June, as mentioned in this site) all over the world and taken a bumper opening. The movie made on budget of Rs.60 crore has collected close to Rs.100 crore within 2 weeks of release. In UK, the per screen average is only next to The Incredible Hulk, though due to limited number of screens, Dasavatharam opened at 11th position. Indians in the US have been shuttling from one state to another to catch a glimpse of their matinee Idol. I have always wondered why the western media never gives due credit to Indian movies. By reviewing the movie here, Joey from LA Weekly has won a lot of Indian Hearts. Thanks Joey!
