Dhanush and Selvaraghavan's Mayakkam Enna is an emotion-filled story that shows varied feelings of a man. The filmmaker, like his past works, has not followed the current trend rather he has made the movie in his usual style. Besides writing a wonderful script, he has also taken the best out of his cast and crew. Read on for the review.
The story is simple yet complicated. Freelance photographer Karthik Subramaniam idolises acclaimed wildlife photographer Madhesh Krishnaswamy (Ravi Prasad). He wants to work under him. On the other side, he has a gang of friends with whom he loves spending time. At his juncture, he meets his friend Sundar's leading lady Yamini (Richa Gangopadhyay). Initially, Karthik and Yamini does not share a warm relationship, as most of time, they end up fighting on various things. However, things slowly starts changing after she starts liking him. The real story of a frustrated man begins unravels from now on. The rest of the story should be seen on-screen.
Selvaraghavan has wonderfully written some close-to-heart scenes. A man's guilt conscious and emotional outbursts leading to frustration are the few highlights of some touching sequences. The core strength of the subject is at the freshness of the story, portrayal of the characters and the strong emotions.
Dhanush has given an excellent performance. He brings you a feel of realism in his character. Richa Gangopadhyay is equally good to him and she has given her best to her role. Ravi Prasad has done justice to his character and rest other characters are okay. Technically, Mayakkam Enna is brilliant. While GV Prakash Kumar has given some catchy tunes, cinematographer Ramji gives a visual treat with his photography. However, the credit for bringing out the best from his team should go to Selvaraghavan. Audience can witness his style in every frame.
Verdict: Mayakkam Enna is a treat for youngsters.
