Actor Bruce Lee, who is well famed for the martial arts expert, is the legendary name at south India. His film Enter The Dragon, that was released in the 1970’s, ran for weeks, also at the small stations in the south. So the makers of GV Prakash’s new film, led by director Prasanth Pandiaraj, titled their film Bruce Lee, as it has tremendous title value. This is also one among the three films that hit the screen today March 17.
On the other hand GV Prakash’s Bruce Lee will make the late legend turn in his grave. The film has been hyped as the black comedy, is clumsy and has neither a story nor style. The jesting humor in this film is very much forced.
The young boy who is said to sissy was given the name Bruce Lee by his loving mother for the reason that the boy like to watch the legend film always on Televisions. He then grows as a lily-livered young man (GV Prakash), who lacks a spine. His girlfriend Kriti Kharbanda and also his friend Bala Saravanan constantly steps in to fight his battles.
One fine day, the gang will get into trouble with the villain, the role played by Ramdoss who costumes up as Marlon Brando of Godfather otherwise sometimes even as The Joker of The Dark Knight. When he kills a local leader the actor ganag would take a picture which in turn makes them run in order to save their lives.
The some of Kollywood popular comedians such as Motta Rajendran, Anandraj and further mimic well-known actors are also seen in this film. The regular Thala (Ajith) and Thalapathy (Vijay) references are also there.
There is a disclaimer from the director appearing in the title cards with a quote from Quentin Tarantino – “I steal from every single movie ever made.” And the director adds – “I get inspired from every single movie ever made.” To put it mildly, we wish GV Prakash, a sensible star, would chose his scripts with a little more care in the future.
Movie Rating: 2.5 out of 5
