Daniel Balaji and Nithin Sathya are petty thieves who steal passports, credit cards and pick pockets. While Lakshmi Rai is an ill-fated girl who is tricked to marry Daniel Balaji, Manjari catches up with Nithin during his adventures at a ladies hostel. All these characters accidentally cross roads with Chetan, who owns the killer video, and drive the movie to its conclusion.
Twists, like bolts from the blue, packed in every nook and corner of the script unfold rather unexpectedly and since you are not at a loose end, it leaves no time for you to think before another one takes over like it's a loop. Fifteen minutes into the movie, Rakhi gyrates her way into the script lip-syncing the raunchy number 'Night is still young' in her barely-there garb. That sets the tone of the movie and everything from then on is uphill.
Pardon the clich, but the role does fit Daniel Balaji to a T. His killer looks (literally, that is) and the all-is-chill attitude works for the role. A satisfactorily done job is attributed to Nithin Satya. Of the ladies, Lakshmi gets more footage and scope while Manjari is confined to a few scenes and the rather tolerable Alagaana Neeyum song, in her voice. Talking of it, only the July Maadathil song speaks of Yuvan's name and the rest of them just fade from memory as soon as the end credits roll on.
Director Srinath, Jeeva's former Assistant, is the surprise in the whole package, who has earlier done comical roles in a few movies. His script saves the day for him and the nicely done screenplay does more than just that. It adds the required grip to the movie's flow. The story is written by Anees Jeeva.
Saleem's camera loses out chances in many scenes and ends up being just above mediocre. With a plot like this, the camera could just have enhanced the impact of the movie in more ways than one. Same way, despite Antony's choppy editing attributes, the movie sustains owing to the other pluses.
Muthirai is fast and filled with oomph and all that is required to keep you on your toes over the weekend at the theatres. With the stretched-tight script, neat direction, fast men and glamorous women, Muthirai might just be the kind of entertainer you missed for a little while at the box-office.
Verdict: Go for it!
