Naane Raja Naane Manthiri...


Ever wanted to see Captain in a role other than him speaking about truth, justice, statistics... or don a role not wearing police uniform...? and that movie to be good?? Then this is the one.

Captain Vijayakanth, in the role of stupid and equally arrogant rich village guy fits the bill perfectly. The major plus point of the movie is the comedy and the way Captain delivers the dialogues during comedy sequences is absolutely perfect. Captain and comedy carry the movie.

Radhika as an unemployed girl coming to work in Captian's house and falling in love with him, does the role good. Jeevitha as the Captain's lover doesn't have much to do. Senthil in Captains group and Goundamani made a scapegoat by Captain was good and different to watch.

Music by Ilayaraja...Mayanginen Solla Thayanginaen... is the pick of the songs...

Directed By Baluanandh and screenplay/Dialogue by R sundharrajan(This explains the good comedy in the movie).

But at times I felt like the movie had a Bhagyaraj touch in it. The hero doesn't change much (Becoming a saint in a single scene...blah blah blah)... It was more real. The climax tells it.

Except for the crass Thali sentiment in the end... It was nice to watch though.
