Bogan – Movie review


Adithya (Arvind Swamy) is a con man who swindles money from whoever he wants. Though coming from a Royal family, he became a pauper after his father lost all riches and the Government took over their kingdom after the countries’ independence. Once he stumbles upon a mystical scripture of a Sage “Bogar” with which one can swap body with another. Adithya uses this and makes huge heists and becomes filthy rich. But Vikram (Jayam Ravi), an assistant commissioner, is on to him after Aditya uses his trick on his father (Aadukalam Naren) who is a Bank manager. Vikram manages to capture Adithya but while interrogating him Adithya switches body with Vikram and escapes leaving Vikram behind in his body as the culprit in Jail. What happens next and what havoc does Adithya creates is rest of the story.

The film belongs to Arvind swamy as he charms his way onscreen in the role of the charismatic villain. Jayam ravi’s role though very much underplayed, the combination works and shines in the movie. Hansika role steal too much screen time in which delays the story in the beginning, but performs moderately. Lag in the second half delays the story and the climax is pushed hurriedly. Songs provide little entertainment to the story, but doesn’t support much. First half gets into a good form, but second half is half cooked and tastes bad. Bogan is still worth a watch for the leading Duo. I give it 5/10

Thani Oruvan – movie review


Mithran ( Jayam Ravi) is idealist cop in search for a worthy adversary. While in training , he and his friends in the camp play vigilante at nights and solve crimes . But Mithran is behind the big fish , who always manage to manipulate and stay far away from the reach of justice. He rounds up them to three main  kingpins who are behind all these lawlessness. Once he takes charge , he chooses his team and begins to collect proof against them. While following these three, he Finally learns that they are controlled by a singular mind  -Siddarth Abimanyu ( Arvindswamy) a scientist and a millionaire who is always a step ahead.How Mithran brings this criminal mastermind to justice is the rest of the story.

Thani Oruvan  is not your usual cop movie, this intense thriller is different and always keeps you at your edge of the seat. This movie brings out M.Raja out of his remake stamp. He with the support of a strong screenplay from the magic Duo Suba the screen writers packs a punch. Jayam Ravi plays his role too perfection and executes his character well. If it’s Jayam Ravi in the first half its Arvindswamy in the second half. He plays his character very casually with a calm wickedness. Nayanthara play her part well , her role and scenes bring a brief relief to the dense subject. For once the songs where not a hinderance to the story even though they weren’t memorable. Cinematography by Ramji was notable and composed very well , his mono chromatic colours brings variety to his compositions. The only drawback is the length of the movie, it nearly 2hrs 45mins. I give the movie 6/10
