Paayum Puli, Pathungum Balli

Uh, oh...this is not a late - very very late - review of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the graphics or technicques. Last Sunday, this movie was featured on Star Vijay, and dubbed in Tamil. Let me confess, though I was very impressed with the Engllish version of the movie, this Tamil version made me understand and ejoy the movie thoroughly.

Thankfully, the Tamil version did not turn out to be one of those "Paayum Puli, Pathungum Balli" type of dubbing, which is normally aired on Star Vijay. Have you guys watched Jackie Chan singing one of the old SIvaji songs or repeating Rajini's punch dialogues in those movies? Thaanga mudiyaathuda saami!

Good we begin to have decent dubbings of good movies, makes it worthwhile - especially understanding some things that one couldnt pick up in ENglish. Soon, we will have "Mothirakkai Maayaavi" - Lord of the Rings. Am sure Lord of the Rings would be much enjoyable too, if going by the trailer I see on KTV. Gawd...imagine who would give voices for some of the characters - Parthiban for 'Smeadle', Arvindswamy for 'Aragorn'...sad Sivaji Ganesan is dead, else he could have dubbed as 'Gandalf'...
