Puli Murugan, the biggest Malayalam Film in the career of Super Star Mohanlal had hit the screens here in Kerala Today. It was the biggest ever release witnessed by Mollywood and without any doubt this is the most anticipated film of this year as well. Hit Maker Vysakh had directed this film and the screenplay was written by Udaya Krishna. This is the first independent screenplay of Udaya Krishna and this big budget movie has been produced by Tomichan Mulakupadam under the banner of Mulakaupadam films. Complete Actor Mohanlal played the title character of Puli Murugan and Kamalini Mukharjee played the female lead in it. Plot of the movie revolves around the central character played by Mohanlal named Murugan. Kamalini Mukharjee plays his wife character named Myna and Vinu Mohan plays his brother in the flick. The film shows hoe Murukan loses his mother and father, when he was a child.
The film depicts how he become a tiger hunter and what happened in his life when some other people comes in to his village with some hidden motives. At first we would like to congratulate Vysakh as he become successful in making one of the best ever action adventure entertainer we ever saw in Mollywood. The hard work has been paid off and Vysakh had done a stunning job as a director this time. He said that he learned from his mistakes after the failure of his last film named Cousins. It seems, that failure opened his eyes and he had made a grand comeback with Puli Murugan. Udaya Krishna had written a filled with all elements to make the audience thrilled and without any doubt we can say that this is one of the best he had written in his career. He had written something very different and Vysakh had presented it with stunning control and conviction.
The way he presented the plot and narrated the story was speaks volumes about the skill of this director. Now about the performance of artists in the movie. Puli Murugan is a complete Mohanlal movie. As Puli Murugan, Mohanlal had given a breathtaking performance. He was in his elements and the way he presented the character was just terrific to say the least. The action sequences he had done without dupes will make us stand wonderstruck and we will be bowed down before this phenomenon. Kamalini Mukharjee also had done a fabulous job as Myna and she really played the character with lot of conviction. Another great performance had come from Lal and his combination scenes with Mohanlal has been superb. Artists like Jagapathi Babu, Kishore, Makarand Deshpande, Siddique, Suraj Venjarammoodu, Vinu Mohan, Sudheer Karaman, Bala, Nobi, Santhosh Keezhattor etc were great as well. The action sequences choreographed by Pete Hein, was just awesome and the frames provided by Shaji really elevated the film to another level. His DOP was one of the major highlights of this movie. John Kutty had done a superb job with his beat cuts as well. Music from Gopi Sundar was also fantastic. In Total.
Puli Murugan is a mega mass action entertainer, which is one of the best entertainers we saw in Malayalam Cinema till now. Such a great cinematic experience this is and it will be a big loss if you miss this one from The Complete Actor Mohanlal and Master Director Vysakh.
