Finally, the most aspiring Arun Vijay had hit bull’s eye with an appreciative piece of work. Despites possessing the most potential, the actor couldn’t make up incisively bigger in tinsel town. With A. Venkatesh laying his hands of usual formula, the film takes it stunningly presented for ‘B’ and ‘C’ centres. There’s nothing exceptional you will be witnessing with ‘Malai Malai’. It carries as clichéd stories where you’ll spot the brotherly sentiments, action, comedy, romance and more of that sort.
The film is about two brothers; elder brother Pazhani Vel (Prabhu) and his young brother Vetri Vel (Arun Vijay) with no worries in their life. Most of the time, they’re chilling out together boozed up and indeed sharing happiness. When Vetri falls in love with Anjali (Vedhika), there’s no exception for his brother Pazhani as he comes falling in love with Lakshmi (Kasthoori). Meanwhile, Vetri makes his way to Chennai in search of a job and as well in reaching his ladylove. He joins as a driver at courier service centres and gets into friendship with Vimala Haasan (Santhanam), an ardent buff of Kamal Haasan. Everything is fine and perfect until a local gang leader Essaaki (Prakash Raj) enters into the scene. Everything he wants to reach Anjali, this goon stands an obstruction and now begins the racy-narration of second half unfolding series of action-packed entertainer.
Arun Vijay does his best on all portions of emoting to situations, stunts, and dance and comedy tracks as well. Now, he has to be careful in choosing right scripts to get on for the next level of mainstream. Prabhu looks fatter and he can better slim down for good presence. Vedhika has nothing more to perform other than shaking legs. Santhanam and Ganja Karuppu add to the humor parts as well. It would be better if Prakash Raj is offered some good role apart from gang leader.
A.Venkatesh moves the screenplay with engrossing parts that will get the B and C centres more attracted. If you aren’t bothered about the logical ingredients, then you will enjoy the film for next couple of hours. Musical score by Mani Sharma doesn’t stop your feet from tapping continuously for the fast-beat numbers.
So, ‘Malai Malai’ has probabilities of surviving at box office with no doubts. As most of this week’s releases aren’t up this level of gratifying the audiences.
Bottom – Line: Commercial entertainer
Verdict: Pakka commercial cinema for time passes.
