Great. Sankaran Kovil joins the ranks of Pasakara Nanbargal, Poova thalaiya, Aasaipaduhiren and Markandeyan. They all deserve to be flushed down the toilet. Anyway, before I do that, there's something I must admit. The actors involved with the film have true grit. I was terribly embarrassed to just sit there and watch these people perform their act. I can't possibly begin to imagine how difficult it might have been to do those things. If there was even an ounce of dignity left before, this experience must've let that little shred drift out the window. I wouldn't be surprised if these people got offers from various circuses in and around the city. Because, that's just what the film is worth.
Sankaran Kovil squeezes all the life out of you, suspends you by your eyelids and leaves you to hang dry. This is going to bomb at the box office. The only way to recover from that is by selling dartboards with the Sankaran Kovil theme. The interval is as good as being the end of the film. If you still intend to sit through, you're probably a closeted masochist. Night Shyamalan's work of fiction 'The Happening' had people jump off buildings. Sankaran Kovil might just bring that to life. There was nothing but negativity from the viewers in the theatre. When one viewer walked out in a huff, the audience applauded and celebrated the unanimous hate for the film. There's no noticeable attempt to tell a story- they're just trying their luck.
