With Suriya and A R Murugadoss coming together after Ghajini, expectations were sky high. Interestingly the Ghajini team including cinematographer Ravi K Chandran and music director Harris Jeyaraj in the scheme of thing has made 7 Aum Arivu, the most sought-after film. The biggest question now is whether the movie lives up to all hyoe and hoopla?

Partially yes would be reply. The movie chronicles the journey of Pallava prince Bodhi Dharman who ventured to China and established Shaolin, a form of martial art. How his deeds help save the mankind in 21st century is what the movie is all about.

The movie begins in sixth century AD and Bodhi Dharman (Suriya), a Pallava prince goes to China from Kanchipuram.He teaches martial arts and is considered the founder of Shaolin. After his demise, he is worshipped as Tao by all in China.
The story now comes to present.
Aravindh (Suriya), a circus artiste falls for Suba Sreenivas (Sruthi), a research student. Aravindh and Suba become thick pals and the former falls for SUba’s charm. Meanwhile, he comes to know that Suba has some motive behind her acts.

Also a sequence of events reveal that Chinese government is planning to unleash harm to India by planning Operation red and sens one Dong Lee (Johnny Tri Nguyen), a matrtial arts expert to Chennai. He is instructed to kill Suba for Chinese government fears that her research on Bodhi Dharman would hinder all their plans.

Suba comes to know that Bodhi Dharman was forefather of Aravindh and finds out that both DNA their matches. Now her task is bringing to life the heroics of Bodhi Dharman through Aravindh to thwart the plans of Chinese government. How they accomplish the task is what the movie is all about.

Suriya has done extremely good job. He is at his best as circus artiste. His hard work is visible in every frame. As Bodhi Dharman, he has given his heart out.
Sruthi makes a good debut. She gets a meaty role to perform. Johnny Tri Ngyuen, the Vietnamese star does the entrusted to him well. As villain, she has done his part exceedingly well.

A R Murugadoss has done his part well ably supported by Ravi K Chandran’s cinematography while Harris Jeyaraj’s peppy music add zing to the proceedings. Rajeevan’s art direction is good

No doubt, 7 Aum Arivu is a different story. But what predictable sequence mars the flow.If Ghajini impressed us, 7 Aum Arivu though grand and rich is no match to it.

Rating: 6/10

    1. The background voice narrating the story. It gives a documentary effect. As if watching discovery ch, nat geo.

    2. From Pallava Kingdom to China, how is crossing desert ?

    3. Where is the seashore along the route to China ?

    4. Bodhidharma returning with healed girl. The scene is awesome.

    5. Fight in the village was nice…. Body language of Surya during the fight scene is appreciatable.

    6. The Chinese making mistake in the Kala Kanitham again. why so? When we tell that our ancient methods are accurate why not their ancient methods?

    7. Present day chennai. Big relief from the background voice….

    8. Dong Lee hypnotising the Chinese policeman from long distance. Is tat possible from that long distance?

    9. Ringa Ringa song… Tooo tooo much of dancers? A majority of them are not even covered in the camera.

    10. Surya circus stunts – commendable

    11. Roller coaster scene – Slowing down when he sees her. Very nice.

    12. He was not behind her in all the three photos. But she says so.

    13. The yellow bench is too high. Was that made intentionally that way to lift and put the friend on it?

    14. Didn’t she recognise his voice over the phone? Even after he says his name she acts normal?

    15. What is Aravindh’s qualification? He pronounces it ‘flour’shop. I think most people still call it flower even today?

    16. kfc meeting is an opportunity for her? But she walks out just like that?

    17. Where is her chappals while getting on the elephant?

    18. Mun andhi song – a visual treat, blue waters, beach, etc. a charm to the eyes

    19. Circus scene with relatives – Shruthi’s tamil accent needs improvement.

    20. The book is not in her bag at all. She casually walks with it in the museum. But when the museum in-charge holds it, it seems heavy.

    21. The Bodhidharma painting in her room is drawn having Surya as a model.

    22. And all the anatomy charts hanging on the wall, has Surya’s face on it. Very funny!

    23. What is the significance of his fracture cast in her research?
