Maga (Arya) is a call taxi driver, he is married to Viji( Indhuja) and has a 5 year old son. Maga leads a double life as a taxi driver and also works as a hitman to a local political leader Muthuraj (Ilavarasu). Maga is very loyal to Muthuraj, but when Muthuraj goes ahead in the political hierarchy, his enemies target for revenge Maga as they can’t touch Muthuraj. On a parallel track Muni (Arya) is an educated organic farmer in a village near Erode, leads a disciplined life away from all the buzz of the city life. When both Maga and Muni’s life cross paths tragedy breaks and forms the rest of the story.
Santhakumar who director the acclaimed Mouna Guru, comes with his second film Magamuni. What stands out in the film is the way Santhkumar fills up deep philosophical lines very casually in between the dialogues and scenes which forms the highlight in the whole film. Arya after Bala’s Naan Kadavul, performs to his best in this film. Induja delivers to maximum but I have to say that her character is wasted in the film as of most of the cast. Though most of the film follows with philosophical lines the story develops quiet intriguing in the first half, but the second fails miserably and ends with a lot of unanswered questions. Magamuni is watchable to an extent.i give it 4/10
