No doubt Mariyan will lend the National award for Dhanush. His sufferings on-screen, bursting and agony will hit audience emotionally.
Mariyaan is a beautiful love story that has been exquisitely shot in two hugely contrasting locations -- the rich coastline of South India with its dramatic beauty, and the stark, barren and rugged locations of the deserts of Africa.
However, what brings the film down a notch is the pace, especially the second half, which seems to drag quite a bit. And though the film may not appeal to all, it is definitely a must watch.
Maryan has been well worth the wait. This superbly crafted film has three heroes- Dhanush as Maryan (Man without death), AR Rahman’s outstanding score and Marc Koninckxx evocative cinematography.
On the whole, Maryan is an experience worth your time.
Ultimately, there is no questioning the crew’s hard work and the lead cast’s outstanding work. Maryan might not appeal to the common man seeking unadulterated entertainment but it is worth a trip to the theater nevertheless, for the very reasons mentioned above.
A movie with breathtaking visuals, heart-stopping music, terrifically talented cast set on a very leisurely paced narrative.
