MAGAMUNI (2019) – PRIME VIDEO

July 10, 2020
​One more Undervalued movie to the Kollywood Library...

My VR Critique Meter: ½



  • Released Date: 5th Sep 2019
  • Language: Tamil
  • Subtitle: Yes
  • Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller.

 

PLOT

A two long-separated blood brothers end up in a life-threatening situation, How their life gets intersects and what they do for survival.

 

The movie was written and directed by Santha Kumar who was known for the unappreciated movie “Mounaguru”. There was a huge gap between his first flick and Magamuni. Aarya has played in a dual role, Indhuja Ravichandran as Viji, Mahima Nambiar as Deepa were done a prominent and lead role in the movie.

The flick is starting with Aarya (Maga)working as a cab driver, married to Viji and having a kid, He was also doing other work, He plans and enables killings. On contrast, In a small village near Erode, There is another Aarya (Muniraj) as his name, He will be looking like a saint, living with his mother Rohini, teaching for kids and do organic farming in their own lands.

Both the stories of Maga and Muni runs parallelly and there is a memory pass which comes in both Aarya’s dreams about a windowed mother leaving alike sons in the middle of nowhere. We can witness both the character's life traveling the same. Maga is associated with a politician named Muthuraj (Ilavarasu) and Muni is associated with a local landlord Jayaram (Jayaprakash)who was a father of Deepa (Mahima Nambiar.

As like Mounaguru the movie, Director has shown the situations and placed the characters on it, usually in most of the movies, it will be vice versa. Direction has shown Mega as a cab driver who got stabbed in his back: Situation is given, Later after some time, we came to know he is a contract killer: Role of the character is explained here, which will confuse new watchers.

The movie has various subplots and more characters which connect the story and have given a proper explanation as well. Revenge seeking brothers on Muthuraj and Maga, Muthuraj’s boss making him to kill the opposite party person. Maga’s doctor friend etc... Also, the movie subtly shares about cast issues like boat sharing, teacups scene.

Overall, the movie has won the hearts but missed to be engaging due to more characters and more unrequired subplots.

Likes and Dislikes

  • Plot is very interesting for amateurs but not for the layman. More number of characters and subplots like caste plot and the climax framing plot which diverts the actual what director plans to tell.
  • Since both Maga and Muni resembles the same in expressions, showing differences in the dressing and the body marks. My real doubt is why Maga or Muni sent to Asylum.? Did anyone say he was mentally ill anywhere? At least they kept the secret till the end.
  • Acting of Aarya, Indhuja was splendid, Indhuja has gone one step above Aarya in showing expression.
  • The visualizations are pleasant, Especially the scenes of Muniraj.
  • Songs are not up to the mark and the background score has traveled along with the screenplay.
  • The movie was missed to be thrilling ends up with a drama.

WALTER (2020) – SUN NXT

June 23, 2020

A typical commercial movie so called thriller...

 

  • Runtime: 133mins
  • Language: Tamil
  • Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller

PLOT

Walter is on solving mysterious death of newborn infants in Kumbakonam realizes that few bigwigs are behind the crime.

Story revolves around Kumbakonam, A Temple town of Tamil Nadu. The movie is starting with the introduction of MLA of Kumbakonam constituent Eswara Moorthy and his backstory. An honest police officer Assistant superintendent Walter is on a mission to nab the suspects of two newborn babies mysterious death is the plot.

But the movie has more characters, Bala portrayed by Samuthrakani. His screen presence was less but it was great as usual. He has done a character of an important member of the ruling party and a good friend to Dr.Arjun portrayed by “Natty” Natraj. Acting of Walter as honest police portrayed by Sibi Sathyaraj was splendid.

Pre-Intermission of the movie has started with the plot and lost its path which finally ended in the climax. The writer has given a new kind of thriller feed to Tamil cinema, Bombay blood group. It is found very interesting and found a gripping one for a thriller movie.

Overall, Walter has missed its thrilling elements due to fabby writing.

 

My VR Critique Rating: 5.2/10

  • Plot: 6/10
  • Screenplay: 3/10
  • Cinematography: 5/10
  • Acting: 6/10 (Only for Sibi Sathyaraj’s character)
  • Background Score: 6/10

 

Likes and Dislikes

  • The plot is clean and would have very good thrilling elements but unfortunately, it was missed.
  • Screenplay was utterly confusing because of fabby writing which leads to boredom scenes.
  • Cinematography is great in providing screen presence of the actors but it was not only required.
  • Characters of Bala, Arjun and the actress was not required which is putting soap to the plot for adding some elements since the writer not able to give a medical thriller.
  • To save Bombay blood group infants, an anti-hero is abducting them and saving them from the perpetrator which found outlandish.
  • The climax is not that much great, it could be better.
