Maattrraan Movie review
Over the past few years cinematographer turned director K.V. Anand has craved a special place for himself in Kollywood. After enthralling the audience across the country with his visual magic, he turned director with Kana Kandein. There is no doubt that he has a special style of making and to be precise, all his films are based on a social issue. And now he is back with yet another stylish entertainer Maattrraan. This time he has teamed up with Suriya for the second time (the first was in Ayyan, which was a blockbuster hit) and Tollywood's pretty lass Kajal Aggarwal is the leading lady.
However this time Anand has touched a very unique subject in Maattrraan! The film is about conjoined twins (identical twins whose bodies are joined in utero).
What is it about?
Ramachandra (Sachin Khedekar) is a genetic scientist who wants to create a new revolution in science. His area of interest is baby designing and he chooses his own wife to experiment it. But things goes wrong and his wife delivers a conjoined twins with a common heart. Though Ramachandran wants to separate the twins, which will naturally lead to the death of one baby, his wife strongly opposes. Meanwhile Ramachandran's project gets rejected and after a long struggle he sets up a baby milk powder (Energion) and it clicks...
Fast forward to the current situation: Now the twins have grown up but they opposite in nature. Akhilan (Suriya) is smart, witty and peppy while Vimalan (Suriya again) is calm, understanding and intellectual. At this point Anjali (Kajal Aggarwal) walks into their life. Both Akhilan and Vimalan develops a special liking for her but she falls for the smartness of Vimalan.After a few crucial incidents Vimalan learns (through a Russian journalist) that the milk powder which Energion produces is been adulterated with a life threatening steroid, which will start giving side effects after few years. This means it will affect India's next generation... A twisted turn of events leads to the death of the journalist followed by Vimalan... What will happen next? Who is behind all these? Akhilan begins his search, which leads him to former USSR country... Problems gets bigger.... Watch Maattrraan to know more...
Who is in it?
With every film that he does, Suriya is getting better and better. He carries the entire film on his shoulders and he does it with ease. He has shown the difference of the conjoined twins rightly in the body mannerism and voice modulation. Post the interval, he appears in this third look and he does everything perfectly. Kajal Aggarwal is pretty and beautiful; but she has to work more harder to get the lip sync right. Sachin Khedekar plays a very important role in this film and he needs no introduction at all. In fact he is one of the seasoned actors that the country has ever seen. Isha Sharvani's dance number is above average. Tara, Suriya's mother, the Russian journalist and the army officer have done a good job.
The Technical side
K.V. Anand's association with Subha duo has once again emerged as the winner. However the second half of the film could have tweaked a little to increase the pace. Kudos to the director for his excellent research skill. Harriis Jayaraj's songs and background scores are ok. Cinematography by Sounder Rajan is perfect and stylish while Anthony's editing works are sleek. The film is produced by AGS Entertainment and Eros International has acquired the distribution rights. The film is also simultaneously released in Telugu as Brothers.
Maattrraan is a perfect watch for this weekend with your family. Get your tickets, grab the popcorn and enjoy it.
