Thanga Magan Movie review
Cast: Dhanush, Amy Jackson, Samantha, Sathish, Adith, Radikaa, KS Ravikumar
The story revolves around Tamizh's (Dhanush) family that includes his mother (Radikaa), his dad (KS Ravikumar) and his wife Yamuna (Samantha). They are a middle-class family living a happy, contented life until one day a shocking incident jolts them. Thanga Magan stays true to its title as it's a story about how a son faces all odds to solve a mysterious case against his father. Hema (Amy) is Tamizh's ex-flame who plays a significant role in this.
* All the actors have done justice to their roles. KS Ravikumar needs a special mention.
* There is a subtle expression of emotions between Dhanush and KS Ravikumar.
* Dialogues are well-written with punches that do not sound over-dramatic.
* Amy Jackson and Samantha look beautiful in their respective roles, which are quite contrasting. Amy gets an extra point here!
* Dhanush and Sathish's comedy timing definitely has to be praised as it makes the first half fun and light-hearted.
* One cannot ignore the melodious songs like Oh Oh and Enna Solla. The picturisation of songs and the chemistry between Dhanush and his ladies is cute and childlike.
* Adith's performance and good looks get some extra marks.
* The second half is a little slowed down and a few moments might seem sluggish.
* The editing should have been watertight to increase the pace of the film.
* The stunt scenes that are shown towards the end are unnatural and odd.
Verdict: An entertainer with all elements - romance, comedy, action, drama - in the right amounts. Despite its flaws, Thanga Magan makes you smile!
