Vikram (Jayam Ravi) is an assistant commissioner of police. His father (Aadukalam Naren) is a bank officer and he gets arrested for stealing huge money from the bank.
As Vikram realises that his father is innocent and starts investigation, he finds out that it was the handiwork of Aditya (Aravind Swamy), who knows transmigration of souls.
Soon, Vikram befriends him, knows his secrets and even arrests him. But things turn turtle as Aditya uses his trick on Vikram himself.
Now Aditya enters Vikram’s body and does all sort of mischief. Is the noble soul of Vikram able to come out of clutches and emerge triumphant?
After a promising Romeo Juliet, director Laxman has come out with even more promising Bogan, which talks about transmigration of souls, a concept untouched by Kollywood in the recent past (remember Prabhu-starrer Chinna Vathiyar).
The only lag in the movie is the distorted screenplay in the second half. If that had been done better the Bogan would have emerged great without any doubt. But even now, the film is interesting in most parts.
Aravind Swamy and Jayam Ravi have continued their success journey after Thani Oruvan, as both lend rock solid support to the film. Hansika, who appears as drunkard in initial scenes, performs well.
D Imman’s music and Soundarrajan’s cinematography are two pillars of Bogan, while Antony’s editing could have been sharper, especially in the second half.
The movie which starts on a slow note ends on a slow note, however the portions inbetween are engaging.
