Asal another Flop
5 October 2010 | by aanandthedonSee all my reviews

Asal a crap movie another flop for ajithkumar,A big fan can say this film is hit, but if you are professional in analyzing of the fact, that you certainly say that ajith has bagged a flop. Story: Asal is a story of feud between three brothers over property; two brothers (Sampath Kumar and Rajeev Krishna) on one side with their avarice for all the wealth with the righteous third trying to stop the family from breaking down. No marks for guessing who is the righteous one, who else but Ajith Kumar?! The feud that exists as an undercurrent in the presence of their father (Ajith again) turns ugly and personal after he passes away. It grows bigger with the two brothers joining in to elbow out Ajith. He graciously steps aside, only wanting to keep cordial relations. But, the two brothers are just not able to handle the huge wealth and the responsibility that it brings. Their wealth attracts trouble and it is up to Ajith to come back and save his brothers. Do things end there or does the feud continue, does wealth disintegrate the family and how does Ajith conquer all the odds? Watch Asal to find out.

Verdict: This Asal will gain no great interest
