Mirattal is an usual comedy film, a patchwork of casting perhaps more colourful than logical! The film narration is simple, a love story with comedy bits thrown here and there.
Vinay Rai, hails from a normal family and loves Prabhu’s sister Sharmila Mandre. To note Prabhu is a don and the lovers elope (starting form 60′s when does this love ends in cinema!) forms the rest is the story. The Saviour for the film is Santhanam who despite all odds holds the audience on seat. Santhanam’s comedy with no other thoughts, is said as the vital force for the film.
Vinay Rai after a gap in Tamil films, pedals well in his role. He is seen canoodling with Sharmila Mandre and the heroine gives her lovely expressions (only in songs). Sharmila Mandre makes her debut in Kollywood through this film who lacks proper homework on her character. Vinay’s action scenes scored well but cannot be said as extraordinary.
Audience roar in laughter when Santhanam walks in screen accompanied by his usual dialogues and mannerism. Prabhu with his bumpy looks suits to the role and no doubt his acting proved to be a treat to the audience. The other casting in the film includes Pandiarajan, who as Vinay’s father has done his best and Kanja Karuppu, Mansoor, Bossky, Yuvarani have done their roles decently.
The film has shot some of the most stunning views in England, momentarily showing beautiful glimpses of the country! Credit to Kannan ‘s cinematography, but the film as a whole failed to impress.
Music by Pravin Mani, probably could have done better. Director Madhesh focused on star casts but failed in his logical narration. One may wonder why the director unnoticed wrong dialing of emergency number by heroine in England and the Screenplay flawed in climax scenes too!
The film which started with thunder and lightening showing a trace for heavy rain but all ended with drizzle! Seeing its flip sides which is dominating one can watch it once for its combo of comedy!
