Anegan Movie review
National Award winner Dhanush is just a week fresh from the success of his latest Hindi movie Shamitabh and his much awaited Tamil movie Anegan is hitting screens today. Directed by KV Anand, the movie has music by Harris Jayaraj and cinematography by Omprakash. Debutante Amyra Dastur is debuting as a heroine with Anegan, produced by AGS Entertainment and distributed by them and Dhanush's Wunderbar Films.
The movie opens to colonised Burma, where the daughter of a top army officer Samudhra (Amyra) is saved during an accident by a poor native MunaRuna (Dhanush). Over the course of time, Samudhra falls for Muna and against her father's wishes she plans to elope to India with him. However, due to a disgruntled and traitorous friend, their love ends sadly in death. It is here that we learn that this is a story told by Madhumitha (Amyra), during a session of regressive hypnotherapy with her doctor Radhika (Lena). Madhu is a techie working for Kiran (Karthik) - a games software developing tycoon. One day, she meets Ashwin (Dhanush) a system admin for the same company, in the lift and he saves her when the lift crashes. Madhu is convinced that he is her lover MunaRuna from her past life as Samudhra. She follows him around and bugs him with stories of their past life, but he is least bothered. Meanwhile, one of their colleagues - Meera (Aishwarya Devan) meets with a mysterious death and Madhu keeps having different illusions but everybody around her just dismiss as tall tales made up by her. At one point, Madhu's illusion starts coming to reality and just when Ashwin also starts realising it, their lives are suddenly pushed into danger by unknown assailants. Why is Madhu having such illusions? What is the danger surrounding Madhu and Ashwin? Who is desperate to have them both killed? Watch Anegan on the big screens to know...
Director KV Anand has gone out of his comfort zone and tried his hand at a new genre. The story has many layers and knots and keeps the viewers guessing at each scene. Despite there being a lot of twists and turns, the director ensures that there are no loose ends when the climax is over. The story, written by the famous duo - Suba, is very intense and keeps the viewers engrossed completely in the suspense. Dhanush is growing in stature as an actor with every movie of his and the way he has differentiated each of his characters in Anegan, are absolutely brilliant. He is the star of the show and carries the movies on his shoulders. Amyra Dastur has had a dream debut in this movie. She has a very meaty role to play and the director has trusted her enough to choose her for the role and she does not disappoint. Her transformation into the different characters that she plays is effortless and her performance as Kalyani is just perfect. And what a comeback for Karthik. The Navarasa Nayagan proves once again his class and the pre-climax portions are an absolute treat for the viewers. He has brought his trademark charm to the movie. Ashish Vidyarthi has done a good job, as have Jegan and Lena. Aishwarya Devan is more than just pleasing on the eyes. She has breezed through her role. Harris Jayaraj's music has already been well received and the 'Danga Mari' song brings the roof down with some super cool picturisation. Om Prakash's visuals are pleasing on the eye and he ensures that KV Anand's trademark riot of colours are maintained, especially the Burma flashback sequences. Watching the movie in Dolby Atmos is an added pleasure. The first half seems a tad slow, while the second half keeps the viewers totally focussed.
Anegan has many different twists and turns and takes the viewers on a roller-coaster ride of entertainment.
