Give a miss to this Marumakan
Review By Sreejith
Dileep and Sibi Udhay team unites after Maya Mohini for yet another comic chapter with Mr Marumakan. This time also they have included all the necessary elements like comedy, sentiments, actions, emotions and twists. But, with illogical sequences, boring and double meaning comedy, and same old sequences makes this film predictably boring. The tried and tesed formaula test the patience of the audience as well.
The movie is about Ashok Chakravarthy a lawyer played by Dileep who wants to establish himself as a theater artist and wants to review his family owned drama group. Ashok’s family is in deep debt and his ancestral properties has been put for auction. The story takes another leap with the arrival of Balasubramaniyam (Bhagyaraj) the bank officer who turns out to be a friend of Ashok’s father (Nedumudi Venu) who agrees to help the family.
As the story progress, Ashok marries Rajalakshmi (Shanusha) who is the daughter of Balasubramaniyam. Balasubramaniyam is now living seperate from his wife Raja Mallika (Khushboo) and his daughter Raja Lakshmi (Sanusha). Raja Mallika is the daughter of Raja Kokila (Sheela), the owner of the Raja group. Life changes for these ladies with the arrival of Ashok the Mr Marumakan. Rest of the story is about the clash of the trio and the Mr Marumakan followed by as many twists and turns before we head towards the climax.
The film lies in the shoulder of Dileep, and he carries the character of Ashok with ease. Sanusha have nothing much to do in the film and should have choosen different script for her acting debut as a heroine. Director had wasted the presence of the actors like Kushboo, Sheela, Bhagyaraj. Wish he could have had used their presence effectively. Babu Raj, as a legal advocate of Raja group disappoints. Rest of the supporting cast including Kushboo, Sheela, Bhagyaraj, Biju Menon and Nedumudi Venu had done a decent job.
Dileep’s favourite script writers, Siby K.Thomas and Udayakrishna fails with a boring and predictable script made this movie a big let down. After the success of Maya Mohini, they should have thought that audience may accept any thing they offer.
Its seems like director Sandhya Mohan did nothing other than coping the scenes written by his script writers. Wish he should have read the script atleast once.
P.Sukumar’s does a decent job with the camera while the music of the film falls flat and is just average.
Mr.Marumakan is a predicably boring film with illogical sequences and double meaning comedy is easly avoidable, and can give it a miss even if it showing in Television.
