Marainthirunthu Parkum Marmam Enna
Police-thief stories always attract the attention of the audience easily. If narrated well, they have all the potential to become blockbusters, going by the track record of the genre in Kollywood.
‘Marainthirunthu Parkum Marmam Enna’, directed by Rahesh, is one such film, which tells in detail about the chain snatching racket, which has sent shock waves among the public in real life too.
Ayyappan aka Japan (Dhruvva) snatches jewellery from Jeeva (Ramachandran Durairaj). Incidentally, Jeeva happens to be part of a gang which is involved in chain snatching crimes in the city.
Japan soon joins the gang and involves himself in robberies. One day, he attempts to snatch away the chain of Bharathi (Aishwarya Dutta), who happens to be wife of the Commissioner of police.
With luck going against Japan, Bharathi sees his face during his failed attempt to rob her chain. Now the police department forms a special team to nab Japan and other members of the gang.
Also, the Commissioner appoints a tough officer Dilip Chakravarthy (JD Chakravarthi) to arrest the culprits. What follows is a cat and mouse game with twists, turns and a flashback.
Detailing is one of the high points of ‘Marainthirunthu Parkum Marmam Enna’ and the director and his team deserve kudos for intense research on the subject and presenting it in an interesting way in most parts.
Dhruva is apt choice for his role and he proves it with his performance. Aishwarya Dutta, Saranya Ponvannan and other members of the cast add value to the movie.
Technical departments of the movie, including music, cinematography and editing, have helped the director. Despite some parts of the flick reminding us of ‘Metro’ (2016) and the script wandering post interval, ‘Marainthirunthu Parkum Marmam Enna’ is a good attempt.
