Maragatha Nanayam - Genuine Entertainment.!


Aadhi and Nikki Galrani, who had earlier worked in Yagavarayinum Naa Kaaka, have teamed up again in Maragadha Naanayam. The film also dubbed in Telugu as Marakathamani which also simultaneously releasing on the same day. It is fantasy comedy thriller, Directed by Debut director ARK Saravanan, and produced by G. Dillibabu under the banner, Axess Film Factory.

The film features Aadhi and Nikki Galrani in lead roles, while Anandaraj, Ramdoss, Danie, Mime Gopi, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Arunraja Kamaraj, M.S. Baskar, Brahmanandam, Kaali Venkat, Sangili Murugan and K.Pooranesh in important roles. The film music composed by Dhibu Ninan Thomas, whereas Cinematography by PV Shankar and Edited by Prasanna GK.  Recently, The film has completed the censor formalities and the Censor Board  have given a clean U certificate for ‘Maragatha Naanayam’. 


The story of Maragatha Naanaya unfolds in three different timelines: 1100, 1992 and 2016. The film is centered around five characters.  The film story revolves around the precious stone called Maragatha Naanayam. Two small-time smugglers try to steal this highly valuable emerald artifact, which is believed to be cursed. To safeguard themselves from the evil spirit to whom the relic belongs, they seek the help of three ghosts! 


The film takes its times to set up its characters and initially, the pace at which it shifts genres makes us wonder if the film will work. Once the plot kicks in, we are convinced about the switch in genres and the jokes flow like a river. Unlike most horror-comedies, the humour is not in bad taste but quite wacky and funny. 
Even though the film features a battalion of actors, everyone gets their due and the screen time to shine in their respective roles. Nikki Galrani is easily the pick of the actors and her role comes with the biggest, most unexpected surprise and it’s sure to sweep audiences off their feet. Aadhi, Ramadass, Anandraj and Daniel Pope also get meaty roles and they do full justice to their parts. 
That said, the oddness sometimes feels forced and even repetitive, like the moments featuring the Twinkle Ramanathan’s silly assistants. The narration could have also been tighter, as many a scene goes far too long in spite of making its comic points. This is also why the thrill of a adventure feels inappropriate, despite the presence of a chase scene involving a monster truck. Meanwhile music and cinematography are apt for the movie.
