    Review from Galata

    What makes a crime thriller interesting? Well it's the tight screenplay and time factor! That is what debutant director Shantakumar has done in his debut directorial venture Mouna Guru, which has Arulnidhi and Iniya in lead roles. When his generation stars wants to mouth punch dialogues and bash the goons in every single frame, here comes Arulnidhi who always manages to do something different every time; whether it is his debut venture Vamsam or the second film Udhayan.

    The film is produced by Arulnidhi's father Tamilarasu under their home banner Mohana Movies. Here we take a look at the plot...

    Interestingly Mouna Guru has a tricky plot! College goer Karunakaran (Arulnidhi) always finds it difficult to adjust with the society that he lives. As a result he is unable to control his anger and often ends up with some trouble. His unpredictable behaviour become a constant worry for his mother and brother. A series of incidents forces him to leave his home town Madurai and as usual ends up in Chennai. Despite scoring high marks in school, he joins a local arts college in the city and stays in hostel from where the trouble begins.

    Now there is another story which goes parallel. While traveling from Bangalore to Chennai Assistant Commissioner Marimuthu (John Vijay), Inspector Rajendran (Madhu), Sub-Inspector Selvam (Balakrishnan) and cop Perumalsamy (Krishnamurthy) witnesses a car accident. When they are about to take the victim (son of Bangalore based business tycoon) to a nearby hospital, they comes across a huge stash of cash. The policemen kills the (half dead) victim and flees to Chennai with the money. A cluster of lies, ego clash at the hostel and family's ignorance brings innocent Karunakaran into this crime plot! Then we have the sincere police officer Palaniammal (Uma Riaz Khan) who takes up this case. The rest is a racy roller-coaster ride that you have to watch on screens!

    Kudos to debutant director Shantakumar for coming up with one of the finest thrillers (in Kollywood) in recent times. The racy screenplay and the well-written dialogues are taunt and perfect. Each and every characters are well etched! Coming to performances, Arulnidhi scores; a plum role and he delivers it with ease. The scenes where he struggles to prove his innocence after being labelled as mentally unstable is well written and executed. All the characters in film have delivered their best; whether it is the sincere police officer Palaniammal (Uma Riaz Khan) or the college principal or Karunakaran's mental asylum friend or the three cops who ends up doing a series of murder to hide one. Iniya, who appears as Karunakaran's love interest, does her part well too. The actress has also dubbed in her own voice, which has become a rare thing in Kollywood.

    Supporting Shantakumar's racy screenplay is Thaman's background scores, which fits the bill perfectly. And the surprise factor is that all the songs are well placed in the film. Mahesh Muthuswami's excellent camera works, Raja Muhammed's sleek cut, A.A. Devaraj's realistic locations needs a special mention. On the back burner, the romance track between Karunakaran and Arathi looses it's focus after some time and also the climax could have been tweaked a little to make it more interestingly. But all these appears to be very minute in this racy thriller which focuses on crime.

    Sometimes we get to see few surprise packages in Tamil Cinema and this is one of them! Mouna Guru is one such small budget surprise gems in recent times. Worth watching!
