Soul-searching Journey in Silver Screen
Mayakkam Enna is adept portrayal of an individual who follows is heart. Maverick film director Selvaraghavan once again does what he is best known for (playing with human emotions). Dhanush (Karthick Subramaniam) plays the complex role (photographer with shades of psycho)to a T. Richa Gangopadhyay (Yamini)as one of the friend's girlfriend and later as Dhanush's wife is a great revelation and commendable. Sunder Ramu (Sundar) as Dhanush's close friend and Richa's boyfriend does a neat job. The entire team of the friend's gang in the movie did a good job and looks realistic. At first, the voice (Deepa Venkat) of Richa's looks flat, but later the confidence of the character is strongly felt and looks distinct. Both the lead actor had emoted well throughout the movie with subtlety, which is worth mentioning. The real 'genius' (Karthick's name in the movie) is GV Prakash (Composer). The re-recording of the movie riveting and top-notch (hope the combo of GV and Selva continue for long time). The photography by Ramji is superb. The editing by Kola Baskar can be made sharper if the song sequence can be deleted (tribal song). The second half looks quite slow-paced, but the director has managed to convey the message through emotion (expression). Overall, the movie is an short episode in the life of an commoner who follows his instincts and guts but not preachy. Once again, kudos to Selva for doing a sincere and heartfelt movie.
