It is all about hype isn't it? You can make people believe in something which is completely non-existent and gain mileage out of it.Right from rumors about the stock market crashing to 'God-Men' having mystical powers.
So where was I? Dasavataram .A movie in which there's one guy who puts on make-up and plays ten roles in an attempt to convince the audience that they're different people .And the reason to do so? Nobody has done it before. Perhaps he should consider having a sex-change operation and play both the heroine and the hero.Why?Because no one has done it before!! Give me a break people! I like the guy , huge Kamal Hassan fan by the way, but the fact that the movie is just a showcase of his talent as an actor i am pretty much sure the storyline will take a beating.In all likelihood its going to be a commercial entertainer and with a LOT of Kamal. The last time i had people around me buzzing with excitement about a movie was when 'SIVAJI -The Boss' .And frankly it wasn't all that great. This machine is running on a fuel called HYPE and guess what they'll run out of it once the movie releases.
And to demonstrate to people how all of us get fooled in our daily lives , i am writing this blog in all honesty to reflecting my feelings before watching the movie and this is my prediction.In a few days i'll be telling the world how the movie actually turned out to be! Whether i was right or it was worth the hype !!
