Finally, Dasavatharam, the much-awaited phenomenon, is ready for release. The craze associated with it is not only proceeding unabated but is ever-growing. It is unclear what kind of frenzy it would unleash when it hits screens on June 13, 2008.
Now looking back, the film has been in the news ever since it was announced. Gradually, the hype and frenzy associated with it picked up and reached its pinnacle during its magnificent audio release. Now all the frenzy has reached new heights with its release just a few days away.
When Galatta interviewed some of the ticket buyers at the counters, they were thrilled to have bought tickets to the movie, particularly, FIRST DAY FIRST SHOW. They said they had their hearts in their mouths until they finally laid their hands on the tickets. Some of them have been waiting since 6 a.m. in the morning.
Truly, Dasavathaaram deserves all this hype. It looks very big and grand and gives a feel like it can never get any bigger than this. This is all the result of an actor’s insatiable hunger for perfection in cinema and love for cinema.
It is heard that the film is based on the chaos theory – the effect of one individual’s deeds on a system and thereby on the life itself – in short, Karma and Physics meet in this film. If this is the case, then believe us, the film will make everyone in the West sit up and take notice. It will become a craze as the West loves Indian philosophies.
Dasavathaaram is the only film which became a super hit even before its release and that too without releasing any news pertaining to it except that Kamal has 10 roles. Even the nation’s most celebrated Sholay was a hit only after its release.
We are lucky to witness the birth and growth of this important milestone in cinema – a film which captures the essence of life.
