Bogan is the Tamil film directed by “ Lakshman” of Romeo Juliet fame. The film features Jayam Ravi, Arvind Swamy and Hansika Motwani in the lead roles. The film is produced by Prabhu Deva under the banner Prabhu Deva Studios. Soundarrajan cranks the camera and “ D Imman” composes the music. Akshara Gowda, VTV Ganesh, “ Nassar,” Aadukalam Naren and Nagendra Prasad play pivotal roles in the film. The film is loosely based on the Hollywood film Face Off directed John Woo.


The cat and mouse game between the hero and the villain is the main theme of the film. Both the male leads play the cops with dual shades. One of the leads is a former Prince. The heroine is the homemaker. Who is the real hero and who is the villain, is shown in the climax.

Star Performances

Both the male leads, Arvind and Ravi have performed excellently well. In fact, Arvind Swamy is the show stealer. He has excelled well in his character. Their combination reminds us of the characters of Thani Oruvan, Mithran and Siddharth Abhimanyu. From the starting to the climax, Arvind Swamy is the interesting character in the film. Hansika has done her part neatly. This is the first different role for Hans in her career, so far.


It is sure that the director has chosen a different plot to impress the audiences. He has made the audiences glued to their seats and had not allowed them to think beyond the script. We feel that this is the success of a good filmmaker. It is a good attempt by Lakshman, who have already worked with Ravi and Hansika in Romeo Juliet.

What’s There?

  • Excellent chemistry between Arvind Swamy and Jayam Ravi & Hansika and Jayam Ravi
  • New script by Lakshman
  • Excellent tunes and background score by Imman

What’s Not There?

  • Second half is less impressive than the first half; seems to be a bit draggy
  • Dry comedy


If you want to watch a film that skips the template scripts and sequences, then Bogan is the right choice. The film is surely a watch worthy one!
