Tamil Movie Review : Mazhai
The movie is a remake of the Telugu movie, Varsham which was a big hit. Debutant director Rajkumar has remade the film without deviating even an inch from the original. It is a love story in an action-packed pace. Although the story is familiar, the screenplay is different which makes it appealing.


The movie opens with the kidnapping of the famous actress, Shailaja(Shreya) by the villain Deva(Rahul Dev) and his gang. Her father(Kalabhavan Mani) solicits the help of Arjun(Jeyam Ravi) who works in a quarry to rescue her.

   Arjun readily agrees as he needs the money to save his dying uncle. There is also another reason. Arjun and Shailaja had been in love but Mani throws water on their marriage plans as he decides to marry her off to Deva lured by his wealth.
   Enters the movie producer(Pyramid Natarajan) who impressed by Shailaja’s beauty and talent casts her as a heroine in his movie. Shailaja’s father, laps up the offer, calls off the wedding and moves to Chennai living off his daughter’s dreams. This part of the story is told in flashback and rest of the story shows how Arjun rescues Shailaja and marries her.

Jeyam Ravi’s performance is improving with every movie. This role of the angry young man sits well on his broad shoulders. His talent in action sequences is really stunning. His body language is just perfect. Shreya, who has played the role that Trisha did in Telugu, has won our hearts with her sculpted looks. She is surely the face to watch out for in the future.

Other characters in the movie have also done a creditable job especially Kalabhavan Mani and Rahul Dev. Vadivelu’s comedy is not anything to write home about.

Kudos to director Rajkumar for coming out with a neat package. He has worked as an assistant to Charan. He has retained the flavour of the original while presenting to the Tamil audience. Devi Sri Prasad’s music is just passable. The dance choreography for Nee varumbothu is superb.

The movie which is produced by S.P.B.Charan, will surely be a gala offering for the youngsters!
