Behindwoods review board

Direction: Vikraman

Production: Amma Creations
We know Vikraman for the kinds of films he delivers, simple family entertainers packed with emotion. The director has been away from the scene for a while but is now coming back with the team that gave him one of his career’s biggest hits. Around nine years ago, Vaanathai Pole made a huge impact at the box office with its endearing sentiments and lively comedy that everyone could connect to. It is also one of those rare films over the
past decade that showed Vijayakanth as a soft spoken family man rather than in his usual savior roles. Now, the same team returns to give us something very similar and hopefully as enjoyable, Mariyadhai.

Director Vikraman has said that this movie is dedicated to the audience whose tastes have been underestimated by film makers who have repeatedly provided them with crass commercials full of obscenity and under the belt comedy. Mariyadhai will be a movie that will give the audience the respect it deserves. Vikraman is not known to repeat the cast from any of his previous films, Mariyadhai is the first instance when he has gone back to a once used combination and that is not without good reason, Vaanathai Pole still remains as a sweet memory in many a heart. The director said that Mariyadhai too will be a regular Vikraman movie, with the lighter moments and sentimental scenes appearing at regular intervals, but this time, the dose will be stronger. And, the most striking feature about Vikraman’s films are their simplicity, be it in the story itself or the way in which it has been filmed, there is a feel of life being depicted on screen as it is, Mariyadhai will be no different.

Vijayakanth returns to a pleasant character(s) (he plays a double role) perhaps for the first time since Vaanathai Pole. It will definitely be good to see him in a different light. Ambika will be seen in a role of substance after a long time while Meena and Meera Jasmine are in roles of equal importance. All the female characters in the movie have ample footage and scope for performance, as it should be in any family subject. Ramesh Khanna will be seen once again and will hopefully evoke the same laughter that he did in Vaanathai Pole.

Music by Vijay Anthony has been a revelation because we have got to hear some tunes that are not generally associated with the composer who very recently gave us ‘Nakka Mukka’ and the ‘new age Aathi Choodi’. Camera has been handled by Andrews.

More than anything else, Mariyadhai is going to be a simple story woven intricately around family relationships and emotions. In an industry that is starved of such family subjects, may Mariyadhai bring in the trend once again!
