The Bicycle Thief -> Pollathavan

Among the diwali releases many find Pollathavan better than the lot.I saw this film in trichy the day after Diwali along with stylesen, Siva, Ashok & Vinoth as we were returning droopy faced cos we could not get a ticket for Vel as well as Azhagiya Tamil Magan. It seems it is a blessing in disguise as i heard from people the plight of the audience who viewed ATM.

Though we entered after the start of the film by 10 minutes, i found the film pretty captivating though similar to puthupettai & 7G rainbow colony in certain aspects.Later i came to know that the story line is taken from a 1949 Italian film Ladri di biciclette - The Bicycle Thief. Namma Tamizhan paakaatha padamae illa pola :)

Here the story of Bicycle thief is tweaked a little by replacing cycle with pulsar, and peppered with villians throughout the story and seasoned with one Remix song and 2 nice to hears.The fight sequences are bound to captivate the audience for sure.Overall it is a nice film to watch and helps to be on the watch-out(sarcastically) for other releases with it.
