      Default █ ►MADHURA RAJA◄ █ - My Review

      Date : 12.04.2019
      Theatre : CineRoyal, Screen 11
      Place : Dalma Mall, Abu Dhabi

      When Vysakh announced the return of Raja you already know what to expect from the film. So it is more about whether he fulfilled your expectations with regard to a festive commercial potboiler that entertains you. Since I was not expecting an Adoor or Shaji N Karun movie (which unfortunately looks like the case with many reviewers here) I can tell you that I was entertained and that is the only thing I care with movies like these.

      Coming to the story, nothing great in it but Vysakh saves the day whenever UK's script comes to a standstill. Vysakh is Mollywood's answer to Rohit Shetty who is another one who can keep the audience engaged even with a wafer thin plot with some well crafted sequences. Some key supporting characters from Pokkiri Raja reprises their roles (Nedumudi Venu, Vijayaraghavan, Salim Kumar....). Loved the Lucifer mention when Salim Kumar asks Nedumudi about Prithviraj's character. Mammootty gets a grand entry as expected and the build up to his entry for the first 20-25 minutes was pretty good. The (bad) English speaking trait of Raja is utilized here as well and some of them were really funny. Salim Kumar has a meaty role and it is always a pleasure to see when he is in full flow. Some of his wits are downright 'chali' ( @pulijose please note ) but overall he was excellent.

      Coming to performances, like in Pulimurugan Vysakh has handed over the antagonist role to Jagapathi Babu. I would have liked to see someone else (maybe a Samuthirakani or Prakash Raj...) in that role. I am not saying Jagapathi Babu was bad but he looked the same old Daddy Girija from Pulimurugan be it his expressions and mannerisms. Anusree succeeded in keeping the constipated look throughout the movie which was kinda annoying at times. Jai shines as Raja's second in command, while others like Nedumudi Venu, Vijayaraghavan, Shamna Kasim...were good doing what was expected from them. Sunny Leone sizzles in an item number in the 2nf half.

      Now to the pillar that holds the film together, Mammootty...what to say!! Even at this age his energy levels were insane. From the mass entry to the broken English wits to the mass dialogues to the action scenes...he just rocked. Special thanks to Peter Hein for choreographing stunt sequences that suits the man. Shaji Kumar's visuals are top class as is the BGM by Gopi Sunder. The special effects used during the sequence of the hunting dogs that kills the human beings were excellent.

      Vysakh has delivered what he promised and I was not at all disappointed with the movie. A 3rd Raja movie is in the pipeline based on the closing credits.

      Double strong alla....triple strong!!!

      My rating : 4/5
