Puli Murugan Review

Murugan is a commoner who hails from a village close to the forest. Like most of the villagers, Murugan supports his family by cutting bamboos from the forest. His family consists of his wife, daughter, and younger brother. The village is constantly attacked by wild animals, to the much dismay of the villagers. Being a hunter, Murugan has developed his own methods to fight against the wild animals. How an unexpected situation forces him to use his skills and hunt down the beast, forms the crux of the story.

Mohanlal who essays the titular character, Murugan, is just fantabulous in his role. It is hard to believe that a 56-year-old is capable of doing such difficult stunt sequences with the same ease of plucking a flower. Take a bow, Mohanlal!

The movie which has the best-ever action sequences in the history of Mollywood. Watch it for Mohanlal's one man show...!!!!

The plot of this movie focusses on the life of Murugan played by Mohanlal. He lives in a village near forest with his wife Myna. He have a little daughter as well with and his brother too lives along with him. He is a lorry driver who works on forest to earn a living and the flick depicts who Murugan becomes Puli Murugan, the wild hunter. Vysakh had given us successes in the past like Pokkiri Raja, Mallu Singh, Seniors etc and his films like Visudhan had got appreciation as well. But still there is a feel that he can do better than all those movie and he has the potential in him to do something very big. Now, Vysakh had done it and Puli Murugan had elevated him to another league. We have to say that Vysakh had done a fabulous job as a film maker in this movie.

Mohanlal once again proved that he is the one and only Complete Actor in Indian Cinema. He has been just amazing. The transformation of him as Puli Murugan was breath taking and he just need the blink of an eye to create terrific mass effect on screen. The way did the dangerous and jaw dropping stunt scenes was just astonishing and it was a privilege to watch him on screen. Actor Lal had complimented him really well with his powerful performance. Other artists like Kamalini Mukharjee, Suraj Venjarammoodu, Jagapathi Babu, Makarand Deshpande, Kishore, Nobi, Vinu Mohan, Siddique, Sudheer Karamana, Santhosh Keezhattoor etc also done their part to perfection.

Pulimurugan is an experience which can’t miss from cinema halls. It is a visual spectacle. Not only mass, but it has certain class in it as well. This film will rewrite box office history for sure and will remain in your heart for quite a long time.
