Best way to hold a prominent place in movie industry is that an actor must choose the right kind of scripts that will suit his image and fit the space well. Actor Arulnidhi made his debut through Pasanga Pandiraj’s ‘Vamsam’ followed by ‘Udhayan’. These movies didn’t perform well in box office and indeed wasn’t a piece of cake to cherish upon.
This time, he strikes with a surprise in ‘Mouna Guru’. As the title suggests, the movie arrived with much silence not giving more hypes and the final result – As you walk out of theatres, it’s a great experience for the audiences as they’ll feel it worth watching for the pennies they paid for tickets.
Debutant Santhakumar comes up delivering a taut thriller that keeps us engrossed from beginning till end.
We will not bring you more details about the movie and the very few lines on the plot itself should add more to your interests over watching it.
A car is hit over an accident, few cops find a big money at the backdoor of car and they loot. While a senior cop throws his plans open to his officers over saving the money through phone, a girl captures it through a camcorder. While she plans to blackmail the cop, the video falls into the hands of other man. The cops are now on the run to trap him and a youngster with wrong identity is pulled down.
Don’t miss the edge-seated thriller that has more interesting twists and turns.
The perfect-casting by Santhakumar and a brilliant work over story and screenplay becomes the very of the first few attributes that define ‘Mouna Guru’. The first half has more and more interesting moments that will never let you go outside or just bend down for a mobile check even a second.
Arulnidhi maintaining silence during many places is a special highlight and then Iniya should have avoided much makeover. John Vijay throws a good work and in contrast to his previous work as a hilarious villain in ‘Va Quarter Cutting’, he shows up as a real pragmatic baddie here. Uma Riyaaz gets a meaty role and the way she finds out the real culprits is a superb shot to appreciate.
Thamman’s musical score is good and background score increases the intensity of raciness in the movie.
On the whole, ‘Mouna Guru’ is a movie that shouldn’t be missed. With this season lacking so much of taut thrillers, this one becomes a best illustration of how a thriller should be.
Verdict: Go watch it…
