Another Mayanadhi style movie
Maradona is about Tovino who is a gangster on the run for a quotation that went wrong. He and his partner (Tito Wilson) are forced to part ways while on the run. Tovino ends up in Bangalore where he is staying with a distant relative of his. The story shows his background, what got him here and how he breaks out of this.
Chemban Vinod plays a solid role of Martin who is chasing Tovino. Sharanya Nair plays a chirpy girl who Tovino falls for. She shows lot of promise in her role.
What works for the movie is how it is shot and the colourful frames. The movie is never dull. Tovino has acted well and one scene worth remembering is the one where he is making a small kid cry. He has acted well both as a brutal goonda and as a guy changing. Chemban too stood out for me as a reformer gangster but doing this one last job. His frustrations while trying to follow Tovino is shown beautifully.
Watch the movie if you like dramas of this genre. It's surely not a fresh concept but the making is refreshing.
