Story
‘Anbalippu’
Ravi
(Sasikumar)
is
the
son
of
MG
Ramasamy
aka
MGR,
a
renowned
ayurvedic
practitioner,
and
Raasathi
(Saranya
Ponvannan).
The
father-son
duo
shares
a
strained
relationship,
owing
to
Ravi’s
carefree
lifestyle.
However,
things
take
a
different
turn
when
the
mountain,
from
which
MGR
gets
his
medicines,
is
about
to
be
turned
into
a
stone

Story
&
Direction
Despite
having
the
potential
to
emerge
as
a
decent
family
entertainer,
director
Ponram
has
crafter
a
film
that
barely
scratches
the
surface.
The
extremely
lazy
writing
and
making,
that
barely
makes
use
of
the
potential
of
the
main
plot,
is
the
biggest
letdown
of

MGR
Magan.
Even
the
sub-plots
that
had
the
spark
(for
eg.
leading
man’s
obsession
with
getting
into
the
front
page
of
a
newspaper),
are
left
behind
unexplored.
Instead,
director
Ponram
settles
for
the
age-old
tiring
character
tropes
of
Tamil
cinema
(like
the
forever
helpless
mother,
supportive
uncle,
and
so
on)
with
almost
no
effort
to
bring
anything
new.
Some
of
the
emotional
scenes
look
outright
bizarre,
owing
to
the
bad
staging
and
dialogues.
There
are
a
couple
of
light
moments
that
provide
comic
relief
to
some
extent,
but
those
couldn’t
save

MGR
Magan
from
emerging
as
a
tiresome,
forgettable
watch. MGR

Quality
Performances
Sasikumar
is
good
in
his
role
‘Anbalippu’ Ravi
and
manages
to
shine
at
parts
in
his
signature
style.
Sathyaraj
too
is
his
usual
best.
Samuthirakani,
who
plays
the
uncle
provides
the
much-needed
comic
relief
along
with
Singampuli.
Saranya
Ponvannan,
the
National
award-winning
actress
is
once
again
reduced
to
a
helpless
mother
character.
Mirnalini
Ravi,
the
leading
lady
has
delivered
a
decent
performance
in
her
minimal
role.
Technical
Aspects
Vinoth
Rathinasamy’s
cinematography
has
created
the
perfect
backdrop
for
the
narrative.
Vivek
Harshan’s
editing
is
fine.
Anthony
Daasan’s
songs
are
forgettable,
while
the
background
score
is
okay.
Verdict
MGR
Magan,
despite
having
the
potential
to
be
a
decent
entertainer,
ends
up
as
a
tiring,
forgettable
watch,
thanks
to
its
outdated
making
style.
