Mayilu which was under production for quite long time has been finally released today. This movie has been produced by Moser Baer Entertainment, directed by a debutant director Jeevan with New face Shri and Kanchivaram fame Shammu in the lead roles.
The story line of the movie is about how a superstition is ruining a guy’s life. The story line is good but the way it was presented is really testing our patience. If you give this story line to a short film maker he can convey the same message within 20 minutes. We really don’t know what is the scope for editor in this movie. In most of the places, we are getting a feeling whether we are watching a edited version of the movie or its an unedited version. The only relief in the movie is a music by Ilayaraja. However the songs are average, the background score is good.
New face Shri’s reaction is same for all the scenes whereas Shamoo’s performance is dramatical. The supporting crew’s are done their level best. Kanja Karuppu as a comedian, once again ensured that we are not laughing for his comedies. Vidharth has done a cameo role as Atheist and it seems to be OK.
Overall the movie has nothing new to offer and the director has to work a lot for his next.
