Directed by Jagadeesan, ‘Mosadi’ reminds us of H Vinoth-directed Natraj-starrer ‘Sathuranga Vettai’ in many places, especially in the first half.
The film is about a conman and his gang of friends who cheat people to make quick money. But they have an agenda behind their acts.
As soon as demonetisation was implemented in the country, a Minister (Vijayan) gives Rs 100 crore to Viju Iyyapasamie in Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations and asks him to convert them as Rs 2000 notes.
He also asks Viju to keep the currency with him for some time. While doing so, the money goes missing. Coming to know about this, the Minister and his brother threaten Viju with dire consequences.
They ask him to return Rs 100 crore in just 30 days. Following this, Viju hatches a plan and decide to earn Rs 100 crore in one month, by indulging in cheating.
Along with his friends, he involves in various illegal acts and cheats people by igniting their greed for money. Even as he is about to reach his target, he gets caught by a team of police. What’s next?
Viju appears in different looks and has tried to offer his best performance on screen. Pallavi Dora is good in romance scenes. Vijayan as the evil Minister is nice choice.
Camera work by R Manikandan and editing by Shahjahan are value additions to ‘Mosadi’. Though Jagadeesan has managed to come up with an interesting idea, the execution is not that good. His concentration on the screenplay and narration could have worked wonders.
