Komban fame Muthiah is known for giving son of the soil stories with enough sentiments and family bondage. Be it Kutty Puli or Komban, his handling of rural themes won the admiration of many.
Perhaps he has tried his hands on a similar theme and wants to strike hat-trick with Marudhu. And he has chosen a good of performers, who deliver the best and excel in their roles.
Set in a village in Rajapalayam, the movie revolves around Marudhu (Vishal). His romance, family values and revenge drama makes up the movie. The director has carefully chosen his stars - besides Vishal it has Sri Dhivya, Soori, Radharavi, Marimuthu, Arul Doss among others.Music is by D Imman and the rural milieu tunes of him are the hallmark.
The real winner in the movie are razor-sharp emotional dialogues. Predominantly spread at various places in the movie, Marudhu manages to touch our hearts.Vishal lives the role. Unlike his earlier movies where he played a city youth, he appears a rustic man all through and excels in the opportunity provided to him.
His rugged looks and tall dark handsome physique suits the role to T. He seems to be at ease in such movies. Remember on earlier occasions in Thamirabarani and Sandai Kozhi he came up a winner.
The movie has a right mix of emotion, family value and relationshp mixed with action.The producer Anbuchezhiyan deserve a pat for coming out with the venture. Sri Dhivya as Vishal's ladylove steals the show.
The bubbly young girl pours right emotions and dazzles.It is happy hunting ground for Soori. The comedian not just tickle your funny bone in the first half but later he makes you cry with his emotional outburst.Its a cakewalk role for Radharavi.
he pulls it off in style. The scene stealer is RK Suresh. The Thara Thappatai actor does give a superb performance and creates fear in your spine with his acting. Muthiah knows what audience wants especially those outside Chennai. He gives exactly that and floors you.Marudhu is a movie to watch and admire.
Marudhu - Family fun-ride for all
