Thinking differently is the proclamation made by the title. Director Nanda Periyasamy has indeed thought differently in the initial scenes where we get to see the stark realities of a village and its cast based attitudes. But the director loses the plot after a point and turns to clichéd path. Thus the movie flatters to deceive.
Director introduces the four mischievous boys Mangaa, Kona, Pandi, and Maari, who think they rule the 'Kadavur' village near Madurai.
These four friends always think in a bizarre manner to do some unscrupulous things and crimes. After a few unsavory incidents they are hunted by the upper cast people and the police. They manage to escape and come to Chennai.
Here they indulge in theft to make a livelihood and in the process they meet a girl, who needs to be saved from the clutches of her greedy uncle. They also get a revolver. With the help of revolver and ‘different thinking’, they try to save the girl. But they get into a mess as some unexpected things unfold. Watch the movie to know what they are.
The director has generously borrowed from the recent success formula of Tamil movies like Renigunta, Subramaniapuram and Naadodigal. Since he hasn’t had a story to tell he flatters to deceive. The movie, in particular, falls flat after the interval point, as it becomes clichéd.
New music director Guru Kalyan makes the proceeding interesting to some extent with his background music but he has failed to come up with any good number. Editor Kola Bhaskar has done a good job by making the proceedings move in a fast pace. Cameraman Vijay Armstrong has done well in the first half.
The newcomers have done their respective parts well. Shammu has done a good job and she ahs added color to the fare. Ravi Maria as the uncle is quite impressive. Ponvannan makes his mark in a small role.
The list of positives in the movie besides the editing by Kola Bhaskar, include, who has shown the stunt scenes and a few clamor scenes well and the stunts by Speed Syed are remarkable. Towards the climax is a fight sequence that is sensible and nothing really cinematic.
‘Mathi Yosi’ could have been a different fare had the director give more attention in the second half, which is cinematic and predictable.
