Siva Karthikeyan, Oviya, Jayaprakash
Director Bandiraj who proved himself through the movie ‘Pasanga’ has directed the movie ‘Marina’ which is his own production venture.
Bandiraj has taken effort to relate the plight of children who sell snacks in the Marina Beach. The background of the movie is the ‘Marina’ beach.
Although it seems there is a semblance of his first movie ‘Pasanga’ in this one, ‘Marina’ is a honest and tremendous effort.
Ambikapathi (Pandi) escapes from his uncle and comes to Chennai with desire to study. He sells water packets to eke out living.
Kailash, who is already selling water packet in Marina, turns his acquaintance. Police is on look out for Kailash who is a petty offender.
Police nab Kailash through a boy who steals petrol. The story has other interesting features as love between Senthil Nathan (Sivakarthigeyan) and Sopna Sundari (Oviya).
Sivakarthigeyan for whom this is debutant venture, proves his acting ability with sincerity apart from impeccable delivery in small screen. ‘KaLavani’ Oviya has given a smart performance.
Every character in the movie leaves an indelible impression. Also, every character in the movie gives a stunning performance. Old man, horse rider, and the mentally ill character, and character ‘Annamma’ are impeccable selection.
The movie doesn’t follow the usual ‘Masala’ trend and the director has taken the effort relying upon screenplay. There is no big story, but the actors have done it realistically.
The new faces have done every aspect as music, cinematography and editing tremendously. Music composer Girish is a added strength to the movie.
After viewing the first 20 minutes of the movie, those who do not like Chennai will develop liking for the city. Editing and cinematography are tantalizing. Overall, the movie provides satisfaction.
The movie has proven that even for Marina there is the nativity.
