  • Screenplay

Bottom Line: 'Iru Mugan' is a hollow sci-fi movie which fails badly in execution !


'Iru Mugan' is a new genre science fiction thriller written and directed by Anand Shankar. The movie features Vikram as male lead role. Nayantara and Nithya Menen are the two female leads and the movie is bankrolled by Shibu Thameens under Thameens Films banner. Harris Jayaraj has composed tunes. Vikram has done dual roles and the recently revealed trailer showcases the another Vikram too. Well, let's see how the movie is. So what is the plot all about ? Vikram does dual roles. One role is of an Ex-cop Akilan Anand and another is Love. Akilan gets an assignment as Indian Embassy was blasted by some unknown miscreants. He gets assisted from Nithya Menen who is also an undercover Raw agent. Nayantara comes as Vikram's wife in flashback portions. She gets killed by Love. Once again, Vikram faces task of locking horns with Love and this time what he does to payback for his wife's death forms the rest of the story. A highly predictable storyline with beaten to death screenplay and no engaging narration is what the movie is all about.

Star Performance

Vikram as always gives his best. He delivers his performance top-notch as Ex-cop Akilan Anand and Negative character Love. He carries the burden of the entire movie on his shoulders. He scores in fight sequences too. Vikram's beard get up and his free style fighting resembles Hollywood style. Nayantara is gorgeous as Halena and that's it. She doesn't get much screen space nor scope. For the first time, she has paired with Vikram and the chemistry has been perfect. Nithya Menen as Raw agent has done justice to her role. In her new attire and new role, she fits the bill perfectly. She has done role of Aarushi. Nassar, Thambi Ramaiah, Karunakaran have done justice to their roles as supporting cast. Thambi Ramaiah could have done better with comedy portions. He is mostly annoying.

Techinical Team

Technically the movie is rock solid and we can sense that from the frames itself. RD Rajasekar's cinematography deserves a special mention. He has kept everything simple and some eagle view shots for chasing sequences has elevated the movie to whole new level. The colours are also vibrant and attractive. Bhuvan Srinivasan could have done better job with editing. Unnecessary placement of songs act as hindrance to the flow of movie. The cuts are also non-linear and that may test patience of audience. Production values are quite high and the makers have done it extensively. The mine fight set alone is enough to prove that the production values are too high. Music by Harris Jayaraj is average. He grabs attention in Halena song alone. That song is visually attractive too. Background score is completely a Noise !


'Iru Mugan' is a desperate attempt from Director Anand Shankar. He tried something new, but failed badly in execution. And as for Vikram, his hard work goes in vain once again. It's high time he realizes, changing make up alone is not good enough to get success. Content driven movies are essential. Nayantara seems to be having bad omen right now. After tasting a failure with 'Thirunaal' recently, she has done it again. This movie may not impress family audience nor youngsters. This movie would just be another '10 Endrathukulla' or 'Kandasamy' for Vikram. His hardwork has been in vain once again. 'Halena' song is good. Cinematography is exemplary. Nothing else to brag about.
