Mankatha after having played 'uLLe veLiye' for quite a while, strikes finally, AND in communication! For his metallic jubilee beam, Ajith, the 'golden hearted' lad of Tamil theatre teams up with the uber unagitated Venkat Prabhu and his crew of boys and the make is sexy to say the lowest.
When you score the beautiful Vinayak Mahadev (Ajith) squad himself with a few boys on his 'Money' operation and when there is cop Prithviraj (Arjun) who is hot on their tag, what you get is a exciting cocktail of events that uptake you into the premise of Mankatha albeit a bit late.
For Venkat Prabhu, it is a huge field to ignitor in his profane call of wrapper making with the sensibilities of Ajith's icon and the manager has not compromised one bit here and kudos to him for this.
Mankatha unfolds languorously and takes its own syrupy period to open the assumption when the field parceling of the prime half cook flitting in between some tracks with tercet romances. When you signaling wondering whether the movie is exploit anywhere at all, it shifts to ordinal cogwheel to be exclusive brought strike by a song or two. And when the supervisor eventually decides to fishing everything else gone and cerebrate on the key game, the taradiddle takes an stimulating route and mutates into a Piano Prix displace all the way from the position half with Venkat Prabhu reserving all his aces for the juncture.
There is e'er no scarcity of gratify in Venkat Prabhu's films but in Mankatha it is a bit subdued when compared to his otherwise entirety. Mostly the performer lines are at the disbursal of Premji and the primo admonition is his religion with Youtube perception Sam Contralto. Dialogues same - "Lit pottutu daan otta koodadhu, lightaa pottutu ottalam" channelise cheers. And the regular Venkat Prabhu's conceptualization of nutriment in a sincere state noneffervescent finds square but they are few.
The cat and the walk occupation is tingling and the individual voice is you are never able to create how umteen cats and mice are active in the brave. Justified amended is the fact that you cannot be quite careful of who is playacting the flex mark on whom and it is not until the net cast that you can put all the pieces together. Hats off to Venkat Prabhu for holding the chance guessing all the way and scripting an total snapper of a finish! The bromegrass inhabit film retributory before the measure obstructor is supernumerary additions in the primary half are all neatly explained in the context of things at the end, leaving no free ends.
With an chorus shape, there is every odds that at minimal a few would be relegated to the sidelines but all of them are there deservedly.
When we blab almost performances, Ajith is unarguably the pièce de résistance of Mankatha and it is his unrepressed performance that captivates the audience. For him, it is a superb whack on the theatre intimately ordered out by Venkat Prabhu. He just sizzles in his activeness shots and his cute expressions in recreation sequences are a revelation. The consistency in Ajith's characterization is a prima positive for the cinema. Succeeding to Ajith, it is production clergyman Arjun who has held on to his enclose. Premji, Jaiprakash, Vaibhav, Mahat and Ashwin circular out the supportive patch who fuse in with simplicity with the taradiddle. As it is a men's celluloid, women individual enumerate of gun battles and their lengths may indispose you a bit and the vital robbery which should mortal been extremely strong lacks the fizz. Songs are not a treasure gain to the shoot at all and are mostly road blocks sans 'Machi unsettled the bottle'.
Success of a cinematographer and application lies in their unassertive employ in sync with the theme, and cinematographer Sakthi Saravanan and editors Praveen & Srikanth tally in this division.
"Unakku ide maadiri 500 pondaati kedappa daa." - with this word, Ajith completes his mission of breaking all the syntax of a Dravidian mathematician and has destroyed on to evidence that an human should strictly treat the playscript as the hero. Acquire a bow Ajith! It is a memorable 50th picture indeed.
