Star Performance

Arun Vijay is smart as usual in his character and his body language and the dialogue delivery are perfect for a police officer. Priya Bhavani Shankar perfectly fits in the role Satya and did a decent job. Yet, she didn’t get any unique situation to open up her skill. Prasanna is a menacing antagonist and impresses the audience with his style. Bharath Reddy Bharath is a cardiologist turned actor. He appears >> Read More... Bharath Reddy did a decent job.


Karthick Naren has penned the story beautifully. His characterization is good. Yet, he should have designed Priya Bhavani Shankar’s role, little better. She appears throughout the movie but didn’t get enough chance to show her full talent. However, she fits well in the role. The character selection is terrific. Arun Vijay and Prasanna did a fantastic job. Besides these people, there are two other heroes; one is the music director Jakes Bejoy and the other is the cinematographer Gokul Benoy. Both of them did a fantastic job and took the movie to the next level. The narration by Karthick Naren is excellent and he maintains suspense throughout. The climax is excellent and it carries the story to the next level and people are highly expecting the sequel.

What's There?

  • Script, screenplay and the narration are good
  • The stars fit perfectly in the given roles
  • Cinematography, editing and music are the pillars of the movie

What's Not There?

  • Naren takes some time to establish the characters
  • Priya Bhavani Shankar should have been given some performance task


Mafia Chapter 1 is an interesting movie. Although it has a few flaws, the movie is definitely watchable once for the fantastic performance of the stars, excellent narration by Karthick Naren, the BGM by Jakes Bejoy and the cinematography by Gokul Benoy.
