Rajini Murugan Tamil Movie Review
Rocks & Rules
Rajini Murugan (Sivakarthikeyan) leads a jolly life in Madurai, in the company of his friend Thothathri (Suri). His sole job is to take care of his grandfather (Rajkiran), a respectable man in the locality.
Murugan is madly in love with Karthika (Keerthi Suresh), with whom his wedding was fixed during childhood itself. But Karthika’s father is now not in good terms with Murugan’s family and she too doesn’t reciprocate to his antics.
In the meantime, Murugan’s grandfather wants to meet all his children before his death and share the property among them. But most of his wards are in abroad and it is not an easy job to bring them together.
So when Murugan takes up the responsibility to unite the family, enters Ezharai Mookan (Samuthirakani), a local goon, who claims he is also a grandson of Rajkiran and demands share in property.
Now Murugan is entrusted with three tasks- uniting family, putting an end to atrocities of Ezharai Mookan and joining hands with his love of life. How he succeeds in all these litmus tests?
With Rajini Murugan, Sivakarthikeyan crosses yet another milestone in his journey to superstardom. The film, with an average script, becomes an entertaining and a lively one solely because of the screen presence and performance of Sivakarthikeyan.
Giving him able company is Suri. Scenes involving S & S bring the roof down in theatres. Keerthi Suresh is acceptable as Madurai girl and she is beautiful too. Rajkiran and Samuthirakani have delivered matured performance.
Balasubramaniem’s cinematography is cool and casual, while D Imman’s music is one of the biggest highlights of the movie. Director Ponram of Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam fame has presented yet another ‘paisa vasool’ entertainer.
On the flip side, songs pop up at unwanted places and one of them at least can be chopped off. And many scenes are routine and cliched. But these things can’t stop you from enjoying Rajini Murugan this Pongal season.
