Dhanush's Thanga Magan has released today in many theatres all over the world. Since the movie houses the team that was responsible in dishing out a superhit flick in Velaiyilla Pattathari (VIP), Thanga Magan's expectation meter was high right from the beginning. So, has the movie managed to deliver the goods? Continue reading our review to know.
Thanga Magan Plot:
Dhanush, an average looking boy from a simple family background,
falls head over heels in love with Amy Jackson. He manages to woo her
and subsequently indulges in a thrilling love life.
However, his happiness doesn't last long as Amy walks out of his
life, leaving him dispirited. What follows is an attempt by the
director to narrate the difference between love before and after
While Dhanush, along with his family, leads a peaceful life, due
to a certain turn of events Dhanush's father (played brilliantly by
KS Ravikumar) faces a grave situation, which in turn disrupts
Dhanush's daily life.

But brilliant editing by MV Rajesh Kumar saves the day and makes
sure Thanga Magan doesn't get tiring. Another important
factor that works in favour of the film is its screenplay, as
director Velraj has a knack of entertaining his audience even while
handling a wafer-thin storyline.
Other positive factors in the technical department includes A
Kumaran's cinematography, stunt Silva's fight sequences and
dialogues from the director himself.
Anirudh's background score is decent enough but the lad could've
done a much better job, for he is more than capable of delivering
some astounding music.
Thanga Magan, though not as impressive as
Velaiyilla Pattathari, manages to make you laugh and weep.
It also most definitely, entertains you.
