A dissection of the society to see what goes on inside, what is going wrong, what is perpetrating crime and how it can be stopped. Maathi Yosi seems to be a film made along those lines. Such themes are not uncommon these days. Over the last couple of years or so we have had many films that have focused on how youngsters lose their way in life and end up being brutal criminals, leaving aside a bright and peaceful life that could have been theirs. Have the makers of Maathi Yosi really chosen a different path - will be the big question when the film releases this Friday. Will Maathi Yosi indeed provide a fresh and different perspective?

The film tells the story of four youngsters, played by debutantes Harish, Alex, Gopal and Visak, who become a thorn in the flesh of their fellow villagers due to the constant pranks that they are up to. But, there comes a time when their pranks get bigger and are no longer seen as pranks, they are more like smalltime criminals. With the four showing no signs of mending, they are ousted from the village. There is only one place they want to go to, Chennai, which they believe is the fertile ground where their areas of specialty can flourish. But, their lives intersect with

that of a girl’s - played by Shammu. Does the girl change their outlook towards life, what do they become, that is what Maathi Yosi is all about.

It will be interesting to watch Shammu in such a role after her highly acclaimed performance in the National Award winning Kancheevaram. And, in a theme like this, one can expect a fair share of action which the youngsters should have reveled in. It is reported that the makers have canned some truly huge scenes for the movie, one of which involves a shot where over 1000 youngsters have been used as extras. Says a lot about the producer’s willingness to go any length.

Maathi Yosi has been written and directed by Nandha Periyasaami, the man behind Oru Kallooriyin Kadhai, the Arya-Sonia Agarwal starrer. While that college story had not been able to do much to forward his career, he is hoping that a change in his perspective (Maathi Yosi) will be able to give him the much needed fillip. Music for Maathi Yosi has been scored by debutante Guru Kalyan.

Let’s wait and watch whether Maathi Yosi indeed offers a different perspective and makes us think!
