Maari the movie is character driven and hence Dhanush was expected to carry the entire movie, which he does. His body language, slang and dialogue deliveries are a class apart. Kajal Aggarwal shines in whichever scenes she appears, which is very limited.
Maari is a technically sound film. Screenplay by Balaji Mohan will hardly make you to glance at your watch. Second half though could've been a touch pacier.
Anirudh Ravichander's background score is getting better with each film of his. The young lad has quickly learnt how to use different forms of music to different films.
The plot isn’t very complex and it is meant to be a simple, yet exhilarating and entertaining ride for a commoner to sit back and spend his time and money worthwhile. Maari pretty much manages to do that but with a predictable plot.
Robo Shankar deserves a special mention. Balaji Mohan is one of the few directors to make use of Robo Shankar’s talent. With top comedians turning into heroes, Robo Shankar is a worthy contender to fill in the void left by the comedians.
Verdict: Enjoy the unlimited mass elements offered by Dhanush and Anirudh!
Dhanush steals the show with his mass appeal in a local goon avatar. Beautiful Kajal looks great in her role as a fashion designer who owns a boutique in the colony.
Director Balaji Mohan unlike his previous ventures, has proved himself to capable of a commercial comedy action drama Maari. Storywise the film is as simple as any other commercial film and high on mass elements.
Verdict: Maari is rich in commercial elements and hilarious comedy which will not leave the audience disappointed!
Maari is a Comedy-Action drama with high commercial elements. Dhanush was seen shaking his leg for a few songs with fast dance numbers and the trailers look smashing.
Action Sequences and Comic Timing: The amazing action sequences of the movie and Robo Shankar’s comedy tracks will leave you laughing out loud. These are the saving points of the flick.
Maari is a disappointment for many. You will only love the movie, if you are an ardent Dhanush fan. Maari is strictly a one time watch. Do watch it for amazing action sequences and awesome comedy by Robo Shankar.
