Osthe (2011) Review Aggregator
‘Osthe’, Silambarasan’s take on Salman Khan and the latter’s superhit Hindi film ‘Dabaang’ has been released today. Critics sound divided on what they feel about the film. Here is what they have to say.
Rediff says it lacks the magic that made the original work: “Osthe may aim to deliver an exaggerated masala mix — but that works only when subtlety also forms a part of the narrative. And there’s definitely nothing even remotely subtle about this film.”
One India asserts that its a fun film: “Osthe has all the successful ingredients to keep you glued till the end. Simbu’s energetic performance and the mass-masala story are enough to keep you entertained all through. The movie is loud, zany, larger-than-life but nonsensical. Nonetheless, entertainment is guaranteed.”
South Dreams asks you to keep your sense of logic out of the way while enjoying this film: “The movie is certainly not for those who try to find logic in cinema. It is free-flowing, devoid of any sense. Dharani has ensured that if a movie is laced with mass elements at quick succession, half the battle is won. Thankfully Simbu translates his dreams well on screen.”
