This is a movie I am actually curious to see. But I want to watch it with friends, and none of my friends have Prime, so I’m not gonna be able to see it any time soon. And in the meantime, I want y’all to be able to talk about it. So this is your Discussion Space, Spoilers Allowed, Go Wild. And once I do watch it at some point, I will review it.
It’s a Tamil film, so it’s gonna have an Issue, and I guess this time the issue is juvenile detention centers and reform, with Vijay as the teacher who tries to help the boys. But, presumably, in a cool charming fun Vijay way. And then Other Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, is the Big Bad who is using the boys. In presumably a tormented and weirdly sympathetic Vijay Sethupathi kind of way.
Does Vijay give a big long speech at some point about society and reform that feels like it could be part of an imminant run for political office?
Does Vijay Sethupathi look under his eyebrows at someone in a way that is opaque but you want to believe is sympathetic?
Is there a big song number?
Is the love interest boring?
Does it feel like 3 hours or does it feel much shorter than 3 hours?
