CAST & CREW
The most awaited film Iru Mugan in Tamil, is a buzzword among the movie buff due to the fact, the genre Sci-Fi is new to the Tamil audience. And this factor has generated an inquisitiveness in the minds of the viewers about the flick, which is simultaneously being released in Telugu as Inkokkadu produced by the NKR Films, Neelam Krishna Reddy acquired the Telugu Rights. The movie is directed by Anand Shankar in bilingual and produced by Shibu Thameens in Tamil. The star cast is awesome with the stunning makeover of Chiyaan Vikram, Nayanthara and Nithya Menen attracts the crowd to the theatres.
Plot: Iru Mugan is an Sci-Fi thriller based on the global espionage. Vikram has acted in dual characters Akhilan (RAW agent) and Love (transgender). For the very first time, he has acted as a transgender and his style of acting has touched the hearts of many. The story is based on the attacks of Indian Embassy in Malaysia and the chemical smuggling by ‘Love’ in general medicines. Akhilan takes charge of this case and moves to Malaysia with Aarushi (Nithya Menen). Halena (Nayantara) comes as Akhilan’s wife in flashback portions. She gets killed by Love. Akhilan takes the task of locking horns with Love and this time what he does to pay back for his wife's death forms the rest of the story.
Analysis: The first half of the movie started off well at a good speed, it has kindled the interest of the audience in the scene before intermission, by making them sit anxiously wait for the second half. The movie seem to be dragging at the second half. The movie could have had a fast screenplay. The music by Harris is pleasing to the ears and excellent as usual. Cinematography by RD Rajasekhar is really a visual treat to the audience.
Star Performance: Vikram is found donning a dual role in the film and the effort and hard work done is tremendous and needs special appreciation. The variation are seen in his character's Akhilan (RAW agent) and Love (transgender & scientist). Nayantara as Halena, paired with Vikram for the first time is really picture perfect on screen with Akhilan character. Nithya Menen as Aarushi has done justice to her role . The supporting actors are Nassar, Thambi Ramiah and Riythvika who have played a significant role in the movie.
