Ko aka State of Play
23 April 2011 | by lithiymSee all my reviews

The reason why the story of KO feels to be so strong comparing to other aspects of the film is that, the story seems more similar to Kevin MacDonald's 2009 block buster, STATE OF PLAY, starring Russell Crowe and Ben Afflect. I feel that Ko is the same story of SOP, with a screenplay to suit tamil cinema. Jeeva plays the role of Russell Crowe while Ajmal takes Ben Affleck's. The saddest part is that having the original movie released a couple of years back , the desi director couldn't improvise the screenplay. I feel for people who haven't seen SOP, would find KO impressive, others who have seen SOP would have a Stomach Burn, as i did. More drawbacks, heroine who doesn't know to act, doesn't know to dance. Lame music by the ace music director, and irrelevant bgm throughout the movie.
