Rating: ★★★½☆ 

Manoharan’s directed venture Maharaja is out in theaters now. Starring Sathya, Anjali and Naseer, the movie has the musical score by D. Imaan. The year is going to end and at the end of the year, the south industry – Tamil and Telugu in particular witnessed the good releases so far. Maharaja is one of the flicks, which will be remembered for the year 2011.

Anjali, the famed Tamil actress who the central focus of the media being the apple of the paparazzi’s eyes, plays the pivotal role in the movie. She essays the character of a glam doll in this flick. Seeing Anjali in the movie wearing the glamorous much revealing clothes, it appears as if she is not comfortable with the costumes she dolls up in the film.

So far in her career, Anjali has played the power packed characters in the flicks such as – Katrathu Tamizh, Angadi Theru, Engevum Eppodhum, Karungali and Rhambi Vettothi Sundram.

The execution of the movie is simply awesome. The director does not get your bored for a moment. There is no yawning or tiresome moment at all in the movie. The debutante director shows his class. You just get to know from the movie’s details that he is debutante else from the work, no one can access the fact. This is called the skill and ability that you make the masses mesmerized in a manner that no one can get to know you are newcomer in the trade.

The story is interesting not novel but has interest level intact throughout the flow. The screenplay is brilliant. It has been penned with care. Dialogues hold values.

The film talks about the leading characters who land into a loving relationship and what happens with them later when it gets revealed. Although the story looks routine but the interest quotient is what has been intact by the writer. And with magnificent ease, the script writer and the director has executed on the screen.

D Iman’s music is spongy and has been scored aptly keeping in mind the modernity of the subject of the theme. Cinematography is first rate. Editing of the movie has been done by Sai Suresh and he does with conviction.

Anjali does the glamorous role for the first time but she enacts well though she seems uncomfortable in the modern outfits. Sathya does fine. Nasser is brilliant. Rest of the cast fills the bill as well.

Verdict:

In a capsule, Maharaja is a well made film that deserves the attention. Go and watch it.
