CAST & CREW
Touring Talkies is the first heroic attempt by the veteran director S.A. Chandrasekhar. This movie has two stories that are split with the interval. Star cast in this movie are S. A. Chandrasekhar, Papri Gosh,
Robo Shankar and V.I.S. Jayapalan.
S. A. Chandrasekhar plays as a rich man who is in his 75, searching for his love. He searches his lover who left him before 5 decades. There are lots of flashback scenes in this movie; but they look very weird. The flashback rolls back to fifty years and the scenes do not look old fashioned. There is TATA INDIGO car seen in the flashback of fifty years… where comes the INDIGO car before a half century? Similarly the scenes at present do not look like a modern day scene; instead looks like a bit old fashioned. When the disease AIDS was not discovered during the old period, the characters in that movie were speaking about that disease. It looks a bit insensible.
There are many controversies in the movie like the hero and the heroine stay together before their marriage. Then the director cum hero S. A. Chandrasekhar is depicted as a chain smoker; it looks very odd to see a man smoking throughout the movie. It might be his habit in the movie; but they could have reduced those smoking scenes. The dialogues by S. A. Chandrasekhar, mentioning himself as Ghilli, which represents him as Vijay and in one more scene, he inserts Ajith by mentioning his movie name Kadhal Kottai. First half of the film tells the story in Shimla and the second half of the story stays in Tamilnadu. Though the film is against child molestation, it is not highlighted well in the movie, except Chandrasekhar. Due to the poor visualization and screen play the film did not touch the hearts of the audience.
Touring Talkies… bore Talkies!
