Magane En Marumagane Movie Review

Director T P Gajendran, who emerged from the stable of Visu, is known for churning out family sentiments, but laced with humour. His 'Magane En Marumaganae', presented by Raj Television network, is no different.

Starring Vivek, Nasser and Saranya in pivotal roles, the movie dwells about happenings in a 'Jameen' family. A beaten-to-bush story has been given a melo-dramatic treatment by the director.

The major USP of the movie is Vivek, who plays his usual. He comes with his 'coterie' to tickle the funny bone playing the title role of Marumagan (son-in-law). Young Mithun Tejaswi plays the son.

The eyesore is the clich├ęd storyline and poor characterisation. The director seems to have loosely etched few characters, which fail to make desired impact on screen.

Jameendar of Singam Patti village (Nasser) and his wife (Saranya) lead a happy life. They are known for their generosity and are adored by the villagers. They have a son Raghu (Mithun) and a daughter Ponnarasi (Yamini Sharma).

Raghu studies in a boarding school and gets educated to find an IT job in Chennai. Meanwhile in the village there is Singaram (Vivek), a fit-for-nothing fellow. He is crazy behind Jameendar's property and wants to tie the knot to Ponnarasi.

He enacts a drama and manages to marry Ponnarasi. But he cannot correct his ways. As a result, he ends up earning the wrath of the family. All hell breaks loose when Singaram is arrested for a murder, which he has not committed.

Meanwhile, Raghu is tempted by his uncle (Livingston) (who is behind his property) to marry one of his daughters. However, it is Thenmozhi (Thenmozhi), a sincere and good-looking servant in his family who impresses Raghu.

Fate takes a turn and Jameendar's family drowns in debt and forced to go out of the palace. In the meantime, Singaram and his wife come to Chennai and he corrects his ways, works hard and becomes rich.

On his return to Singampatti, he finds out that all is not well between Jameendar and his son Raghu. He embarks on a mission to reunite them. Eventually he saves his in-laws family from danger.

Vivek comes all through the film. As usual he impresses with his one-liners and punches. He romances and even dances to a fast paced song. In the first half one sees a comical Vivek, while the latter half shows him more serious and sedate. The actor could have cut down on double - meaning dialogues.

Nasser is impressive as a dotting father and Saranya gets a meaty role. Mithun looks cool. But the rest of characters have been stitched artificially. Director Gajendran appears towards the climax.

Dheena's music is loud and there is a remix of yesteryear hit 'Raman Aandalaum Ravanan Aandalum...' Raja Rajan handles cinematography and his capturing of the village is okay.

On the whole, 'Magane En Marumaganae' is a family fare quite different from run-of-the-mill-stuff. But a sense of watching a drama prevails as the film progresses.
