Actor Ramana seems to have delivered his best in Mahaan Kanakku with debutant director Sampath Arumugham coming out with an engrosser that is racy and rivetting The movie is about one man's fight against private banks that cheat people in the name of interests. He has not made it very preachy.
Jeeva (Ramana) is a a happy-go-lucky youngster. He lives with his siter Janaki (Devadarshini) and her husband Vardharajan (Srinath). For Jeeva's higher education, Varadharajan obtains loan from OCOC bank. Though he repays the loan, for no reason he is harassed by bank officials and collection agents. He is humiliated by them at his workplace and his residence too. Unable to bear their tortures, Varadharajan commits suicide with his family. Only after their death, Jeeva comes to know about the incident.
He now vows to teach these private banks a lesson. How he does that forms the rest.
It's Ramana's show all the way. He is good and refreshing. He excels in dance and stunt sequences too. The star cast includes Sreenath, Devadarshini, Saravana SUbiah and Manobala.
A couple of songs by Rishi Sai are nice to listen to.
Three cheers to the filmmaker for handling a bold theme and sets off a debate that is more relevant for contemporary society.
