Maari Movie review
The dashing hero Dhanush plays the role of a slum lord in North-Madras who is in into pigeon racing, with Robo Shankar as his partner in crime. The story revolves around how Dhanush deals with the local problems of the colony due caused by Police Officer Vijay Yessudas and his set of baddies.
Dhanush steals the show with his mass appeal in a local goon avatar. He looks good in his new look with a twirled mustache, big glasses, number of chains, colorful lungis and printed shining shirts. Beautiful Kajal looks great in her role as a fashion designer who owns a boutique in the colony. This is reflected in her costumes in the film as well. Robo Shankar’s timely comedy makes the crowd to burst into laughter. Director Balaji Mohan has made good use of the comedian throughout his movie. In fact, this is the first time Robo Shankar appears on big screen for an entire film. Singer Vijay Yessudas, despite it being his debut venture as an actor that too as a villain, has proved himself to be a good actor as well.
Director Balaji Mohan unlike his previous ventures, has proved himself to capable of a commercial comedy action drama Maari. Storywise the film is as simple as any other commercial film and high on mass elements. For the commercial film lover, Maari is a good experience. Dhanush’s out-and-out North Madras dialogues with punch dialogues especially the word ‘senjuruven’ is the identity of the film. Dhanush – Anirudh combination has created wonders for the fourth time with this film. The energetic numbers of Anirudh with the local ‘tappankuthu’ beats enhance the mass element of the movie. This has helped in maintaining the pace and mood of the film. Anirudh’s cameo in a song adds pep to the track. Om Prakash’s cinematography is laudabale just like his previous film Anegan. Editor Prasanna G. K, associate of editor Sreekar Prasad despite being his debut venture, has made his cuts in an appreciable way. In fact, the trailer itself got the audience raving. On the whole, Maari is rich in commercial elements and hilarious comedies which will not leave any audience disappointed!
Verdict: A 'veraMaari' wholesome Dhanush entertainer
