Thanga Magan Tamil Movie Review
Tamizh (Dhanush) is a happy-go-lucky youth who leads a carefree life with his father (K S Ravikumar) and mother (Radhika). He hangs out with his friend Kumaran (Sathish) and cousin Aravind (Adith).
But life changes after Hema D’Souza (Amy Jackson) enters the scene and it is love at first sight for Tamizh. However, the love life doesn’t go on for long as Tamizh and Hema are separated after a small misunderstanding.
Following this, Tamizh enters wedlock with Yamuna (Samantha). At a time when everything goes alright, Tamizh is shattered by the suicide of his father. Now he is on a mission to find out as to what prompted his dad to take the extreme decision.
After VIP, Dhanush scores big with Thanga Magan. Though this film, which was originally tipped as a sequel to VIP, has some similarities with the 2014 movie, it has its own premise and script.
Thanga Magan is packed with all ingredients that would woo all sections of the audience. It has got humour, romance, sentiments, emotions and above all, a script with heart.
Dhanush, the national award winning actor that he is, single-handedly handles the show with aplomb. He is ably supported by Amy Jackson (who has a strong role), Samantha (a refreshing character sans glamour), K S Ravikumar and Radhika. Sathish is good and tries to evoke laughter.
Anirudh’s background score and Oh Oh.. and Jodi Nilave.. are the plus points of the movie, while editor Rajesh Kumar has made the offering crisp by making it run for 121:23 minutes.
The first half is terrific, while the second half is average, for it has got predictable scenes and it is slow too. But cinematographer-director Velraj has once again made things work in association with Dhanush. Thus, this Thanga Magan shines bright.
