Review : Whistle – Whistle podu for Vijay fans

Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s movie Bigil hit the screens Today across the globe in Tamil and Telugu languages. The film directed by Atlee is set in the backdrop of football. Nayanthara is the leading lady and AR Rahman provides music. AGS Entertainments bankrolled the film and East Coast Productions is releasing the film as Whistle in Telugu

Story: Bigil is a talented footballer whose father Royappan is a gangster in Chennai. Royappan , who stood against the evil gangs , wants his son to stick only to sports. His dream is to see Bigil plays in national team and brings laurels to the crime ridden local community. Whether Bigil is able to fulfill his dad’s dreams or not is rest of the plot

Analysis: The story of Whistle is simple – it is a masala version of classic Bollywood movie Chak De India with a different backdrop. Instead of a tainted player who is on a journey of redemption by being a coach, here you have Michael aka Bigil (Whistle) (Vijay) who is doing the same but fulfilling the dream of his father. How Michael trains a women football team to glory overcoming all odds is what the movie is all about?

With Bigil, the major letdown is the story and its lengthy runtime (2 hours and 58 minutes). Even with three hours to itself, the film does not delve deep into the lives of the characters, which makes it difficult to empathise with them. Most of the things are ‘told’ on screen and they’re never shown. Perhaps, Atlee and several other directors forget that this is a visual medium and that some things are better left unsaid.

The main issue with Bigil is its predictability. You can easily guess the characters who will end up dead and who get maimed. Despite all that, Bigil is a treat for Vijay’s ardent fans.

Positives :
* Vijay ‘s superb performance in three variations
* Royappan characterization
* Bigil mannerisms Emotional scenes in second half Social message around common hurdles sports women face

Negatives :
* Length
* Routine template
* at times Poor villainy

Performance : Vijay is seen in three avatars in Bigil (Whistle). There is a conscious effort to show the difference, and it works out well. Among the three, the elder variation stands out easily. It would be a delight for the mass audience and fans. Not that the other two acts lack mass appeal, but this is on a level higher. Coming to rest, it is typical Vijay star act. There are mannerisms galore that are used effectively by Atlee. The presentation, stylish looks and body language are all taken care of in a pleasing manner.

Director Atlee always knows the art of playing to the gallery. Almost all of his films are intelligently packaged. So well, that there are elements to satisfy people of all age groups. Bigil belongs to the same type. You get a predictable story, but Atlee, as expected, adds mass elements, emotional scenes and kickass stunt sequences to keep you engrossed in his product.

Nayanthara and Others? Nayanthara plays the mandatory good-Samaritan heroine aptly named an ‘Angel’. There is nothing to complain except that she has a small part in the overall scheme of things that is entirely dominated by Vijay. Among the rest, Kathir and Yogi Babu have decent parts. The latter has some funny moments, and that’s about it. Jackie Shroff and Neil Nithin Mukesh does what they are meant to do in half baked and predictable parts. The rest are okay.

Technical : Music and Other Departments? AR Rahman has provided a decent soundtrack. The songs are alright, but not a blockbuster like Mersal. However, as usual, he makes up with the background score. It is superb and keeps the momentum alive. The cinematography is excellent. The richness of the movie is seen to be believed on the big screen. The production values also need to be appreciated.

Verdict : The sports stuff, for example, is mixed with drama involving various girls with different backdrops. It feels never-ending and too much at a time. Simultaneously, the actual sports stuff is too gimmicky, but it all never veers into the unbearable territory. They are all tolerable, but it is very tiring to watch, and that is the problem with Whistle. It is long and overdrawn and bloated a lot along the way.

Telugu Mirchi Rating : 3/5
