Choose Madras over Chennai. It is Crisp, Clean and Clear.
There is absolutely no reason why you should not watch this movie. It is by all means a pretty decent thriller. Utterly devoid of the superfluities and terse to the point of being of labelled as "un-bollywoodish" the movie represents all that is desirable in an entertainer.
My brother quite ably put it into words when he declared that the charm of the movie lay in it's abstinence from over indulgence.
John Abraham does a commendable job (except for , may be a few scenes, where it is his bad make up and hair do which need to be blamed more than him) .
He is supported by an able cast of actors who deliver credible performances.
The script isn't circumlocutory and the Director isn't shy of laying down facts and opinions in an unequivocal and objective manner.
The absence of songs , does wonders for the health of the audience and the movie too. Needless to say there is no parallel romantic plot disturbing the flow of the narrative.
In fact the movie checks itself every time there a temptation beckoning it over do things.
The Director is honest and doesn't mince his words when describing the situation as as he sees it.
If you have stepped out for a movie and are thinking about catching the last express to chennai , believe me , you ought to change your itinerary and catch a cup of coffee in the café.
