Local flavour

Dhanush turns a local boy again. This time a typical Chennai youth for Maari. Directed by Balaji Mohan, the movie has Kajal agarwal as heroine. With Roboshankar and  Vinod handling comedy and Vijay Yesudass donning greasepaint, Maari is a fun-filled entertainer.

Though the script is weak, Dhanush compensates that with his screen presence.

As Maari, Dhanush has lived the character. His body language, dialogue delivery, dance, song and mannerisms add strength. Comedy comes naturally for him. With gold chains and silk sattai and a coolers, he plays the character with utmost ease.

Kajal Agarwal has limited screen presence but does her part well. Robo shankar's one-liners evoke humour.  But Vijay Yesudas does a good show. Three cheers to him for pulling it off in his maiden venture. He does good in angry scenes too.

On the technical side, the music and background score by Anirudh is a major highlight. It elevates the mood.

The story goes like this: Maari (Dhanush), is brought up in a slum. He has a passion for pigeons and rears them.He develops an interest to win in a pigeon race.. He feels pride in doing it.

But needless troubles during the race turns him a don. All goes well untill enters Arjun Kumar, a police officer. He crosses sword with Maari.All said, Maari is good show thanks to Dhanush. But a weak screenplay mars the show.

good
