Maragadha Naanayam directed by ARK Saravan and produced by Dillibabu.G under the banner Axess Film Factory, stars Aadhi and Nikki Galrani in the lead roles with a lot of other cast members that include Daniel, Munishkanth Ramdoss, Anand Raj, Mime Gopi and MS Bhaskar. The casting equation is adequate and most of the performances are on dart. Aadhi and Nikki do a fair job with their roles. Nikki’s characterization has a surprise in store. Munishkanth Ramdoss is the show stealer and is extremely funny in certain scenes.

The music by Dhibu Ninan Thomas requires a special mention. Both the theme music and the songs have added as a big positive to this fantasy script. Cinematography by PV Shankar is apt and so is the edit by Prasanna GK. The technicalities are intact. If you don’t look for logic in the film and take it lightly, you are bound to enjoy Maragadha Naanayam.

As said before, the film is the hunt for a precious stone that kills anyone who lays their hand on it. After the introduction to the lead characters and their backstories, Aadhi and team go in search of this stone which could fetch them the biggest fortune. What happens after this forms the rest of the story. Though it sounds a little different from the usual commercial formula, this fantasy adventure has been given a commercial treatment.

With the main concentration being on comedy, there are a lot of dialogues which rhyme well. The laughs keep coming at regular intervals and you need to be extremely careful to get the dialogue right because the laughter at the theatre might drown the next dialogue. The director has given equal space for all his artists to perform and they all have done well. Almost every character from the leads to supporting roles and even the villains are comical in Maragadha Naanayam.

In the beginning, the director takes a little while to get to the story. But once he does that, the film travels at a uniform pace till the climax making the audience laugh out loud till the end. The film could work well if you understand that the director’s objective is to give a light-hearted film and don’t much question the logic.  


Verdict: Maragadha Naanayam is unlimited fun, if you don't expect logic


( 2.75 / 5.0 )
