What Is Good
- Prosthetic make up
- Art direction
What Is Bad
- Predictable screenplay
Shakti Soundar Rajan directs the project 'Miruthan'. He earlier directed the movie 'Naaigal Jaakirathai' with Sibiraj in lead role. Michael Rayyaapan under Global Infotainment (P) Ltd produced it on a lavish scale. Lakshmi Menon essayed female lead role and 'Yennai Arindhaal' fame Baby Anaikaa did a pivotal role. Imman scored tunes. Songs were already labelled as a huge hit. So this is Tamil cinema's first Zombie apocalypse movie and how is it ? First of all kudos to director for thinking something out of the box. It is a typical Zombie movie where an outbreak of virus transforms everyone into Virus and how Ravi says everyone from it forms the rest of the story. And in this, there are humour, romance and emotions. Don't expect a Hollywood movie and watch this. Watch it with a free mind and you will love it. It wasn't a laugh-out-loud comedy but it definitely had more emotional depth.
The two leads Jayam Ravi and Lakshmi Menon had a great chemistry with each other. They were so 'picture perfect'. The characters are well developed and as this is a zombie movie, all credits to supporting actors. They have worked hard to put prosthetic make up and everyone of the Junior artist has given their best. You guys deserve a bow ! The movie had some scary moments with zombies. Kaali Venkat has got another memorable movie to his career. RNR Manohar and Jeeva Ravi did justice to their roles. So overall the movie had its charms. The drama could have used more "teeth" to make this film truly memorable and moving though. Zombie makeup was rather minimal, and they managed to make the zombies kind of attractive. The movie is gory for most parts and it is understandable.
Imman scored tunes and songs were already chart busters. 'Munnal Kadhali' is an instant hit number. Thanks to Madhan Karky's lyrics. Shreya goshal's mesmerizing 'Mirutha Mirutha' takes the soul out of us. KJ Venkat Ramanan has done a pretty good job with editing and S.Venkatesh has cranked the camera pretty well. Production values are so high. Kudos to art direction. Especially for the huge set which was erected in Binny Mills. Apart from this, the make up artists deserve a special mention. They have a substantial role to play in this movie. They need to apply make up for most of the junior artists as the script demands to be.
For those who love the TV series "The Walking Dead" and the other zombie comedies "Zombieland" and "Shaun of the Dead", this movie will give you a taste of what the zombie world is like through the eyes of one. The movie has some interesting and well built characters throughout. The chemistry between Ravi and Lakshmi Menon is undeniable.
Kajal will be seen in cameo role for same hero two times! Young hero Sharwanand, fresh from the success of his 2017 Dussehra Superhit Mahanubhavudu, which survived biggies like Mahesh Babu starrer SPYder and Jr NTR starrer Jai Lava Kusa, and turned out to be a hilarious entertainer, is all set to entertain audience twice this year, with movies in varied genres.
