Aadhi, who hails from Tiruppur, wants to make quick bucks. Hence, he decides to smuggle gold for a local jeweller.
In the meantime, he comes to know that a man who has come all the way from China in search of an antique coin- Maragadha Nanayam. Aadhi strikes a deal with him.
As per the deal, Aadhi promises to bring the coin to the Chinese for a fee of Rs 10 crore. In his search for the coin, he finds a team of ghosts (Arunraja Kamarajah and Niki Galrani etc), who promise to help him.
Meanwhile, the hearsay is that whoever lays hands on the Maragadha Nanayam would meet with their fate. Is Aadhi able to achieve the mission or not forms the crux of Maragatha Nanayam.
Director ARK Saravan has relied heavily on writing and it has not cheated him. For, Maragatha Nanayam is a light hearted eerie thriller which keeps the audience engaged from the beginning till the end.
One-liners and surprise elements are the highlights of this flick, which showcases us the lighter side of Aadhi, who was hitherto seen in serious roles.
Nikki Galrani is beautiful and but there is a twist about her character which we are not revealing as per a request from the film’s makers. There is a long list of actors including Arunraja Kamarajah and no one has disappointed us.
Editing by Prasanna GK, music by Dhibu Ninan Thomas and cinematography by P V Shankar have added value to Maragatha Nanayam. With very less minus points which can be overlooked, the film is a good show. Kudos to the team led by Saravan.
