ABCD ** (2005)

Cast: Shyam, Sneha, Nadhana, AparnaABCD tamil movie clip

Gist: Don’t jump to any conclusions based on the title of the movie. The movie has nothing to do with Indians in US or identity crisis of immigrants! A is for Anand(Shyam), B is for Barathi(Nadhana), C is for Chandra(Sneha) and D is for Divya Daisy(Aparna).

The movie is about the three different women (Nadhana, Sneha, Aparna) Shyam meets in his life. All three are in love with Shyam. Shyam’s role gives an impression that he is in love with all the three of them. It is not a play boy kind of role, don’t get me wrong. Sneha is recently widowed and is quite happy about her marital status because her husband is a bad seed. Nadhana plays a middle class family girl who is the prime bread winner for her family. Aparna is an orphan. All three of them are looking for a shoulder to cry on. Shyam treats them with dignity and respect and this attracts the women. As in most of the tamil movie climaxes, the climax of ABCD is whom Shyam marries.

My 2 cents: Sneha and Nadhana’s performance are worth mentioning. Sneha has proved time and again that she is a very competent actress. Shyam and Aparna compete with one another for the worst performance award. Their dialogue delivery flat as a table top. Shyam tries to play a level headed guy who is logical and never gets over excited. But since he cannot emote, he is just standing there with absolutely no expression on his face.

The songs can be used for bio breaks!

Verdict: Director Shravana Subbaiah (the director of the movie Citizen) has tried to juggle couple of things. He attempts to tell the audience about the hardships faced by women in everyday life and also about the delicate relationship ties. He has a long way to go.

    I loved the comment about the “bio breaks” In fact in my opinion if it is a Shyam movie we are better of spending more time for bio breaks than subjecting ourselves to the misery of watching it. Won’t Chicken Kunia and other bio hazards ever strike him, Chimbu and Vadivelu ????
