Maattrraan Reviewby MyMazaa.com
Maatran movie starts off with Rettai Kathire song that introduces Siamese twins Akilan and Vimalan played by [Suriya] and Anjali [Kajal Agarwal] too. Akhilan is a champ and curious in studies, Vimalan is a care-free twin. Sachin Khedekar, a researcher cum businessman is the father of conjoined twin [Suirya].
The story continues according the script and Vimalan comes to know that his father is a culprit and costs his life. Rest of the Maatran story takes place in the investigation about Vimalan’s death, which will be handled by Akhilan along with Anjali, who is a Russian translator.
Our matinee idol Suriya once again proves he’s director’s actor and especially he made audiences spill out as Akilan. Maatran pays off Suriya’s hardwork as a conjoined twin, for which he has done 2500 takes.
Kajal Agarwal is glamorous as Anjali and grabs viewers’ attention with the cute looks and voice over by Chinmayi has worked big time, especially as a Russian translator on mission.
Sachin Khedekar as a struggling genetic scientist did his parts well.
Coming to the technical assets of Maatran, script by KV Anand and Subha, VFX works by Srinivasa Murthy of Enthiran fame, Suriya’s dialogues and Harris Jayraj tunes.
KV Anand has failed to handle the screenplay, which has lengthy fights and scenes, apart from this the movie looks perfectly engaging.
Cinematographer S Sounder Rajan’s camera works are perfect, as there is no such frame that makes viewers feels Akilan and Vimalan are not conjoined. Srinivasa Murthy and his VFX works need a special mention, as this is the backbone of Maattrraan that is the first Indian movie using Motion Capture technology.
Harris Jayraj’s scores are enjoyable as ever, coming to the background music they have well supported the situations. Especially in some scenes they bring audiences get into script well.
Anthony might have done the fine editing, as though the movie looks engaging has many dragging parts.
KV Anand’s Maatran appears to be the sequel to AR Murugadoss’s 7am Arivu, which deals on saving India from bio-war with China, while Maatran is with Russia.
First half of Maatran is quite appealing apart from a long fight sequence. Maatran has some humorous conversations of Siamese twin Akilan and Vimalan, some romance, emotional scenes in the first half leaving some seeds for the investigation in the second half.
While second half moves from India to Russia, for some wanted investigation by Suriya, who is supported by Kajal Agarwal, a Russian translator. The movie finally ends up in India with a huge fight scene in 3 places.
