Hero bashes goons, utters punchlines, romances the heroine and ends up the winner. This is the time-tested formula in Tamil cinema.Bodinayakanur Ganesan is no different.
Director O Gnanam has dished out a commercial cocktail in the movie that has Hari Kumar playing the lead role shouldering all the burden.
Hari Kumar, who played a similar role in Madurai Sambhavam, seems to have fallen in love with the rustic lands of Madurai. In this movie, he plays a callous youth who in the company of his friends lives life his own way. Twist and turns makes him an angry young man. Soori, Arundhathi, Sai Ravi among others form part of the cast.
Gnanam managed to take the movie in a racy manner thanks to plots and sub-plots. However a sense of deja vu prevails as we watch the events that unfold on screen.
Ganesan (Harikumar) and Gilaki (Soori) are close friends in Bodinayakanur who lead life selling ganja and arrack. For them breaking the laws and rules is no tough job. They are mentored by a baddie Thiruvachi (Sai Ravi).
Ganesan's life is his mentally-challenged brother, who is brought up in a mental asylum. Raji (Arundhathi) comes to the village. It's romance straightaway for Ganesan. He wants to impress her.
But coming to know about his life, Raji stays away from him. Ganesan decides to win over her heart and hence stops all bad activities only to lead a reformed life. However the twist comes in the form of Thiruvachi, who decides to marry Raji.
A shocked Ganesan decides to wage a battle against Thiruvachi. Did Ganesan prevent Thiruvachi from achieving his ambition forms the climax.
Harikumar does what he did in Madurai Sambhavam. He is good in both stunt and dance sequences. Soori tries his best to tickle the funny bone. Arundhathi looks good and carries her role with utmost dignity. Three cheers to Sai Ravi. He is violent on screen and impresses everyone.
Anal Arasu's stunt sequences deserve appreciation while John Peter's music is like listening Ilayaraja songs of 1980s. Gnanam, who has directed the film has made it racy, but fails to come with something new.
