Naan Mirugamaai Maara Movie Review : A violent revenge-drama let down by inconsistent writing

Naan Mirugamaai Maara: Unforeseen incidences that happen in a sound engineer’s life post his brother’s death transforms him into a brutal murderer. Can he protect his family members against all odds?

Naan Mirugamaai Maara Movie Review: Revenge dramas have existed for decades in Tamil cinema. While some leave a lasting impact, a few will only remind us of moments that we have been witnessing on screen for decades. Director Sathya Shivaa’s Naan Mirugamai Maara falls into the latter category. Except for Sasikumar’s profession and his unique talent of identifying a bike by listening to its throttle sound, there’s nothing new here for us to actually get excited about. Some scenes are staged really well, but that doesn’t motivate us to sit through the entire film.

The film starts off with a statutory warning on extremely disturbing violence and bloodshed. A few minutes into the film, we get to witness a group of violent youngsters with knifes and sickles setting out to murder Deveraj, an influential businessman. Boomi’s (Sasikumar) brother Kathir, a software engineer, who happens to witness this incident on his way back home, tries to save the victim. Little does he realise that his selfless act would disrupt the peace of his family and his brother, a sound engineer.

Unforeseen incidents that happen in Boomi’s life post his brother’s death turns him into a violent animal who wouldn’t mind beheading his enemies to save his family.

Naan Mirugamai Maara starts off well as a raw crime thriller that takes us into the world of criminals who do anything for money. However, as the film progresses, the drama slows down and throws some clich├ęd scenes that usually accompany a genre of this. It’s understandable that revenge dramas cannot be realistic without gruesome murders and bloodshed. But at the same time, the makers should also realise that the plot should be strong enough to create an impact.

The gory murders here are merely used to create sympathy for the protagonist. The idea of a sound engineer getting closer to the criminals he’s after with the help of noise, waves and patterns is quite interesting, but the writing is inconsistent.

The saving grace of the film is Vikranth. His introduction scene is staged well and his performance as Doss is something to watch out for. But strangely, the makers have not utilised his original voice for the role. The edit pattern is quite disturbing and doesn’t give us time to connect and empathise with the characters, though the dissolves and fast cuts in the first 15 minutes work to an extent. The emotional sequences involving Sasikumar and his daughter could have been much more appealing. Ghibran’s background score helps elevate a few action sequences. Naan Mirugamai Maara would have been better if the director had made this film a decade ago.
