I was watching a Tamil ‘god’ movie that day, not those old old movies in “Deiva Ulagam” but some of the recent Tamil god movies and I don’t know why but SOME of the god movies that I have encountered would have these somewhat ‘similarities’ in them.
First comes our hero. He would be a bad guy and would have a bad intention in doing some shit against his devotee wife or his family members. Then, the devotee wife would somehow knew about her husband’s bad intention and would seek the god’s help. Somehow again, the husband would knew about his wife’s mission and he would do his part by seeking a devil priest. Then in the end, both the devil priest and the god would be fighting and obviously, the god would win. The husband would start crying, hug his wife and he would admit that he has repented. And they lived happily ever after.
Is it only me or anyone else have noticed that both RAMKI and KARAN have been going on a loop for the role of “Hero” for certain Tamil god movies?
3) Child god
Usually some gods would tend to incarnate themselves in the form of a young and bubbly child and would start roaming the planet earth once they have arrived. The best part is, MOST of them would love to laugh for no reason! They would go like HA.HA.HA.HA…..*talks something*….HA.HA.HA.HA.HA…..HA.HA.HA.HA.HA. Why is the need of that laughter when a serious situation is going on, my dear child god? In addition to the echoed voice! I do understand that the previous-mentioned characteristic(s) is very useful especially to expose the “child god” to the public without showing him/her as a god directly but this situation has became a protocol for most of the said child gods; “Talk, laugh, talk, laugh”. Come on, I bet there should be many other ways to represent a child god!
It’s getting annoying lar!
4) Final god’s appearance
You call a god peacefully, he won’t appear. You sing in the temple, cry, run here and there, roll on the floor with some blood on your forehead and finally, you shout loudly in the end of the song and you ended up being faint. Then only the god would appear. WHY?
Why is it that everytime before a god appears in the ending, usually in a temple, the screen would go like in and out repeatedly, moving in a zig-zag motion, the temple bells would chime tremendously and the wind would be blowing hard?
I hope you all would understand that I AM NOT condemning our Tamil god movies but what I would love to see is for a change, a change in the storyline, a change in the usage of over-exaggerated graphics, a change in the movie’s faith-nurturing and a change in the god’s representation as well. And please, for GOD’s sake, do not cartoonise our gods in some of the movies and let our small kids to LAUGH by watching at them!
I know that most of you would not agree to what I have said, especially the Point #3 as it is pointless but I just thought of penning my thoughts down. Cheers.
