Sabari – Movie review

One of the most cliched questions asked to any actor is ‘What would you have become, If you hadn’t entered cine field?’ And the prompt answer is ‘Engineer or Doctor’. But then, what is Captain Vijayakanth, if he answers this question in television or newspaper? In his trademark style, Captain has acted as a doctor(pronounced daagdarrr) in this movie Sabari-The Sharp Knife. No, not a veterinary doctor but a cardioligist. That too one of the leading cardiologists in the world.

The movie starts with Captain receiving a special award for his services to mankind. Namma Captain kitta treatment eduthuka amerikaala irundhu michael jackson vandhaaga, Jappaaan la irundhu Jackie Chan vandhaaga, yaen namma pakkathu country Pakistan la irundhu gunda Inzamam ul Haq madhiri oruthar vandhaaga. Idhellathayum vittutu keragam, Captain, GH la maatikitaaru. That fat guy not only resembles Inzy in his appearance, but also in speech. Like man of match ceremony, he started with insha alla and thanked many people before thanking captain for saving his daughters life. At that time they show people from different countries, sitting in the audience with their children, cheering Captain. But they don’t mention how Captain saved their lives. Maybe, his photo was used by all the parents to mention ‘Ozhunga saapdu illaati boochandi kitta pidichu koduthuduven’. Finally, this inzy guy mentions ‘DR Sabarivaasan should live for than 100 years’ and breaks down on the stage. Am not sure, if he cried thinking about people who watch Captains movies!

One thing about Captain Vijayakanth is, his movies are about removing bad elements from the society. It doesnt matter whether he is police, CID, doctor, newspaper boy, Eswari Engineering college student, Sindhi Model school teacher. He will remove the bad elements from the society. And in this movie, he has tried some new techniques to woo the brahmin audience. Before hitting the villain, captain counts using his fingers like the ‘Gayatri mantra’ sequence of Sandhyavandhanam. And then one knockout punch. Thank god the villains didn’t do abivadhaye to Captain, after the fight!!

As always with captain movies, there is some new heroine. And there is Malavika too. Malavika enters the hospital, and collides with captain and falls on a wheelchair. Industry sources say that, when this scene was taken Malavika landed up in a stretcher. Then, they used a body triple to take it. Then comes the villain. You have heard of the terms ‘Maanga madayan’ or ‘Thengai Madayan’? Villains intro scene is hilarious. He would be sitting in the temple. And the priest would be breaking the coconut on his head! Thengai madayan.

Captain treats the heroines friends daughter for heart problem. He asks the kid ‘Neil Armstrong, nilaa(Not the SJ Surya one) la kaal vakkacha enna sonnaar theriyumaa maa?’. Theriyum doctor. One small step for man, giant leap for mankind. Captain has happy tears in his eyes. And walks away. I was seriously puzzled, why this dialogue was a part of the movie. Maybe, the dilaogue writer wanted to tell the audience that captain’s steps are like leaps? Hmmm.

Captain uses Maruti Swift in this movie. Guess, this is a good proof of how strudy Swift is. This test is any day better than what you read from autocar or overdrive or motorsport. And to make things interesting, Captain stands in the way of heroine nandini getting driving license. Oh, that reminds me. Once when captain meets the heroine in the temple, he makes fun of the heroine saying ‘Nandini’ ‘Nandhi nee’. And how romance forms between the two? They both drink tea. And heroines imagines herself to be captains pondatee and dances.

Just like I successfully decoded TR’s dance sequences, I managed to do for captain too.
1. Walk from left to right, while heroine and group dancers are dancing in the background
2. Assume, you have stepped on something you shouldn’t step on. Shake your leg to remove the dirt. That time, step on it again, using the other leg. Now shake this leg
3. Walk from right to left
4. A new step. Do check out the Malavika, Captain song. I will try to get the youtube link, If I find it. One of the best duets of captain. He has added one innovative step, where in captain stands on his toe every 2 seconds, while raising his hands, just like you raise when you apply deodorant
5.Repeat step 4, with right and left hand instead of left and right hand
6. Keep walking
In fact you can use the same sequence for any song, by just rearranging the order. And it will be any song, even if it is ‘Baba blacksheep have you any wool?’

And one of the best ever climaxes of a Captain movie. Captain is injured. Villain group searches for captain in all city hospitals. But they cant find him. Why? Captain is getting treated at the veterinary hospital. No, am not joking. Seriously captain gets treated at that hospital. And he takes revenge after recovering. Phew!

Sabari- The sharp knife, really. Watch it at your own risk!

  5. EECS
    insult is not when ferro talks something bad about ur college, insult is when gabutonne is ur college student. beware, that insult would be irrepairable one.

  15. Very hilarious indeed.

    Can someone please answer the following?
    1. Is there a pakistani terrorist in the movie?
    2. Did Captain ever say something on the lines of “Thamizhan daa”?
    3. Is there atleast one vasanam where he gives statistics about anything?
    4. Is there atleast one bad cop who is not killed until the climax?
    5. Is there atleast one good cop whose family is murdered/raped/kidnapped but he wouldnt budge for the baddie’s demands?
    6. Is there atleast one vehicle in the movie that has a logo of the Hero’s name?
    7. Is there atleast one song sequence in the movie where in the interlude, you get to see millions of people surrounding Captain (possibly from his election campaign)?

    If you answered “no” to even one of the above, please remind me as to why this should be called as a “Captain’s” movie???

  16. First of all our college is very partial..they give admissions only to male & female candidates and not to some1 like ur beloved gabtain…

    btw the review was too good..had a hearty laugh!!!!

  17. Exhilarating movie review… Kalakura ba… gabtain dance sequences romba nalla solli irukeenga…gabitanodaa aduthha paduthhalaa ungala dance mastera poda porangalaame????

    Thanks for the laughs!!!

  18. Excellent Review ! It will be nice if you can make it much longer like Veerasamy’s review. I have read it atleast 20 times 🙂

  19. just shows what a buncha assholes indians are when mocking their own race….shame on u people……….if any of your fathers accomplished what the Captain has….pls be my guest…but thy arent the one whose making headlines are thy ?….

    dont blame the actor for the directors visions…look what Ar Murugadass did in Ramana and how he projected the Captain…

    Thn again…if u people have such a mindset….even if Captian was to win an Oscar…you people will be making silly jokes out of it trying to make him look stupid….little did u know…u guys make a bigger idiots outta urselves
