Mohammad Aslam, who worked with Ameer and Cheran before has come out with a movie titled Paagan that speaks about a man and his love for his bicycle.
Though it is a laugh-riot, it does serve some purpose. It is no mindless masala movie. It carries a strong message. It says in a lighter vein the need to work hard and earn money.
Srikanth has given his best. He dazzles all through with a stupendous show. Be it anger or agony, he gives his best.
Janani Iyer as his ladylove is apt for the role. She bonds well with her character. Soori and Pandi play the comedians and evoke laughter. Kovai Sarala's comedy and A Venkatesh's cameo are watchable.
Set in a village, the movie begins well and proceeds well all through. Subramani (Srikanth) is a fun-loving youth who spends all his time with his friends Velliyangiri (Soori) and Makali (Pandi). They have pone motto in life - work never and earn ever. They use all short-cuts to make money but all ends in vain.
Finally, the come out with a idea. Subramani decides to fall in love with the local bigwig's (A Venkatesh) daughter Mahalakshmi (Janani Iyer), whose riches he would naturally inherit.
When he proceeds with his plans, he meets with a lot of hurdles. Did he succeed or what happened in his life after that forms the rest.
Music by James Vasanthan. A melody is nice to listen to. Sadly the background score could have been better. Mohammad Aslam has done his best considering this to be his first.
