Iru Mugan – Review by Naveen

Face- Book

Iru Mugan

– Review

Anand Shankar made his directorial debut with ‘Arima Nambi’, a film known for its smart writing and suave making. While Vikram needs no introduction for his penchant towards acting.

Hence, expectations were obviously high when the two came together for ‘Iru Mugan’. But the film, despite being high on performance and production values, scores low on script front.

Anand Shankar has ensured that there are enough intelligent moments. Like ‘Arima Nambi’, he has gifted things in a glossy package.

However, logical loopholes and some cliched scenes take the shine away. But still, ‘Iru Mugan’ can be watched for Vikram’s terrific dual role and top notch production values.

The story: Akilan (Vikram), a tough RAW officer, loses his wife Meera (Nayanthara) in his battle to bring down a drug mafia led by Love (effeminate Vikram). Hence, he goes on a sabattical.

In the meantime, Love makes a comeback with Speed, a drug, if inhaled, would give enormous strength to the user and makes him/her uncontrollable. Love’s first attack is on the Indian embassy in Malaysia.

Officials summon Akilan to set things right. He too accepts the mission, as he has to settle score with Love. Hence, he starts to Malaysia with his female colleague Ayushi (Nithya Menen).

In Malaysia, Akilan is in for some shocks and surprises. Is he able to put an end to the atrocities of Love or not forms the crux of Iru Mugan.

Nayanthara leaves her mark despite it being a small role. Nithya Menen looks good. Karunakaran, Nasser, Thambi Ramaiah and Rithvika among others lend ample support.

Though Harris Jayaraj’s songs remind us of his previous works, his background score is pulsating. R D Rajasekar’s cinematography is a major highlight. With thse things, ‘Iru Mugan’ stands tall this weekend despite its flaws.

Rating: 3 out of 5
