Dhanush's Thanga Magan has released today in many theatres all over the world. Since the movie houses the team that was responsible in dishing out a superhit flick in Velaiyilla Pattathari (VIP), Thanga Magan's expectation meter was high right from the beginning. So, has the movie managed to deliver the goods? Continue reading our review to know.
Thanga Magan Plot:
Dhanush, an average looking boy from a simple family background, falls head over heels in love with Amy Jackson. He manages to woo her and subsequently indulges in a thrilling love life.
However, his happiness doesn't last long as Amy walks out of his life, leaving him dispirited. What follows is an attempt by the director to narrate the difference between love before and after marriage.
While Dhanush, along with his family, leads a peaceful life, due to a certain turn of events Dhanush's father (played brilliantly by KS Ravikumar) faces a grave situation, which in turn disrupts Dhanush's daily life.
How Dhanush's saves himself and his family, forms the crux of Thanga Magan.
Dhanush can now effectively carry an entire film on his shoulders and he does that yet again. Thanga Magan depends on its hero and he comes up with a glittering performance.
Samantha, apart from her voice which might irritate a few, complements Dhanush's act in a near perfect way. The London based girl Amy Jackson, looks detached from the entire movie, apart from a few scenes.
Though the main antagonist looks a tad too meek for the role (VIP too had the same issue), other supporting cast including KS Ravikumar and Raadhika Sarathkumar add solidity to the film. Sathish's comedy sequences in the first half makes way for an enjoyable watch.
While the first half is breezy and congenial, second half gets a bit draggy, thanks to the emotional content and melodramatic sequences.
But brilliant editing by MV Rajesh Kumar saves the day and makes sure Thanga Magan doesn't get tiring. Another important factor that works in favour of the film is its screenplay, as director Velraj has a knack of entertaining his audience even while handling a wafer-thin storyline.
Other positive factors in the technical department includes A Kumaran's cinematography, stunt Silva's fight sequences and dialogues from the director himself.
Anirudh's background score is decent enough but the lad could've done a much better job, for he is more than capable of delivering some astounding music.
Thanga Magan, though not as impressive as Velaiyilla Pattathari, manages to make you laugh and weep. It also most definitely, entertains you.
