Sify 3 Stars
Mariyaan's team work is the best, apart from Dhanush and Parvathi Menon the technical team has equally worked hard for the movie. Even when the movie pace will slow down in the second half it is the character that holds the audience till the climax. On the whole Mariyaan is an experience worth your time.
Rediff: 3 Stars
Dhanush has completely immersed in the character and Parvathi Menon has never allowed Dhanush to overshadow her. Marc Koninckx's cinematography is one of the highlights and the visuals are captured realistically. The only drawback of the movie is the slow pace in the second half. It is definitely a must watch movie.
Behindwoods: 3 Stars
There is no question of the crews hard work and the lead casts outstanding work. Mariyaan might not appeal to the common man who is seeking unadulterated entertainment. A movie with breathtaking visuals, heart-stopping musics terrifically talented cast set on a very leisurely paced narrative.
Indiaglitz: Ratings 3.5
Magnificence acting of Dhanush has proved that, he is no more an ordinary actor and Parvathi's chemistry with Dhanush is one of the best in Tamil cinema. Rahman is one word 'Awesome' and Marc Koninckx's cinematography sum up the movie. A fine movie not just to watch and enjoy, but to feel and relish.
Mariyaan is technically brilliant. Be it the scenes in the fishing hamlet or in Sudan, where even the driest desert looks stunning, these scenes never fail to dazzle you every instant. The film's pace could one of the reasons masses may not embrace Maryaan, as much as they have cheered for Dhanush's films in the past. Irrespective of its Box-Office response, I believe this one will go down as one of the brilliant love stories.
