Mr. Chandramouli Review: Passable Flick
What's in store for us?
What to make of a typical Tamil film that tries to be as different as a routine flick that we get to see every weekend? Thiru who had previously delivered a movie like Naan Sigappu Manithan came up with a film that has a socially relevant point, or it seems to be. Real life father and son duo Karthik and Gautham Karthik played the roles in the movie and Regina Cassandra is the lead lady.
The movie is structured similarly to the above mentioned Vishal starrer. The first half of the movie goes with the fairy tale like life of the hero. Then a tragedy happens with the hero has to resort to taking vengeance. Let's see what's in store for us and if Thiru delivered another with Mr. Chandramouli review.
Chandramouli is a happy go lucky middle-aged man with a son who is a boxer. Raghav, that son falls in love with Madhu at first sight like all good Tamil heroes do. After a few stalking incidents which foreshadow the happenings later in the movie, she reciprocates his feelings. Meanwhile, Chandramouli gets close to a lady named bhairavi played by Varalakshmi Sarathkumar.
Tragedy strikes when a business war starts between Azhagar, a successful call taxi business owner. Chandramouli becomes unwittingly involved in the war. It then becomes Raghav's duty to avenge the personal loss. Will he gets successful in getting revenge or not forms the rest of the story.
Karthik is good in the title role of Chandramouli a happy go lucky middleaged person. Gautham did give a commendable performance as a man with sight issues, he couldn't see anything more than two feet away from him similar to the necrolepsy of the hero in Naa Sigappu Manithan.
Regina Cassandra delivered an excellent performance as an app developer. Btw, the hero is a boxer which is why the film was expected to be a sports drama. Mahendran and Santhosh Prathap are good as the rival businessmen. Varalakshmi is decent as the friend of Karthik.
How's the narration?
As the first half of the movie has the lively life of the hero, the cast performance and the core concept of the movie is good. But the problem starts with the direction and writing. Do we still need a hero who stalks the heroine in order to woo her? When will the makers stop creating characters of heroines who starts to love heroes who stopped stalking them?
Let's see this dialogue. Why did you stop following me? Unaku kenjavum therila minjavum therila, konja matum epdi theriyum? the heroine asks the hero. Check one more exchange. Chandramouli goes to test a car. Getting out of the test vehicle, he says there's something wrong with the seat. The showroom attendant says that isn’t possible as Namitha had checked it the previous day. And do you believe our senior hero says? Ah, that’s the reason the seat is shaky.
Going next to the technical departments, the cinematography by Richard M. Nathan is good. It created contrasting atmospheres for the first and second half of the movie. The music by Sam CS is good especially when it comes to the background score. Editing is pretty average. Few scenes could have been chopped off without mercy. Particularly the scenes like the above mentioned.
Overall, Mr. Chandramouli is a could have been movie. With an interesting core concept, one can expect a great watching experience, but what Mr. Chandramouli delivers is an embarrassing experience. But all is not bad with it if you can bear with few below the waist jokes, Mr. Chandramouli can be a one time watchable fare.
