Arya in a scene from the movie Magamuni.
After a protracted hiatus of 9 years, director Santhakumar – who directed his debut Kollywood film, Mounaguru – is again with a wonderful bang along with his second hit film Magamuni .
Magamuni is an engagingly properly packaged, good high quality movie.
The film was not shot on an enormous price range, nevertheless it has the tag ‘winner’ written throughout it and I hope it does properly on the field workplace. A film comparable to this should be appreciated for its glorious screenplay.
Maga (Arya) is employed as a taxi driver however moonlights as a hitman who works for Muthuraj (Ilavarasu), a grasping and crooked politician.
Though Maga is a hardened hitman, his life revolves round spouse Viji (Indhuja) and his 5-year-old son Prabha. Whereas Maga is wholeheartedly loyal to Muthuraj, the politician simply makes use of him to get his soiled work accomplished.
Director Santhakumar ingeniously then introduces Muni – additionally performed to perfection by Arya -who is well-educated and disciplined and prefers to be a bachelor. He teaches underprivileged college students. Nevertheless, when a journalist pupil Deepa (Mahima Nambiar) who hails from an prosperous household takes a liking to Muni, her step-dad (Jayaprakash) is towards their relationship and really cunningly tries his utmost to drive them aside.
How the lives of the dual brothers, Maga and Muni, cross one another’s path types the crux of the story.
The primary half of Magamuni is nothing in comparison with what occurs within the second half. Santhakumar takes the viewer on a nail- biting fringe of the seat journey fraught with heart-stopping moments.
Arya has grown in leaps and bounds as an all consummate actor and has performed his twin position with nice aplomb. His position as Maga and Muni clearly reveals his versatility as an actor of notice. Each Indhuja and Mahima Nambiar play their respective roles to perfection they usually complement the story of Magamuni fairly comfortably. The supporting solid don’t disappoint with their roles both.
Thaman’s music and background rating is a big asset to Magamuni .
The plus issue of the film is cinematographer Arun Padmanaban, who makes use of lighting, color, tone and digicam angles to seize the distinct roles of Maga and Muni and the general brooding environment of the film. He deserves to be applauded.
Magamuni is new age cinema and must be eagerly embraced. Nice cinema should be celebrated and Magamuni is not any exception. If a film forces you to nonetheless stare on the display when the tip credit roll then that director (on this case Santhakumar) has succeeded in his intention to ship an superior product.
Magamuni is now displaying two reveals day by day at Cine Centre Suncoast in Durban.
