Review by : Behindwoods review board
Starring: Nithin Sathya, Daniel Balaji, Lakshmi Rai, Manjari Phadnis.
Direction: Sreenath
Music: Yuvanshankar Raja
Production: A Vision Jeeva Studios Film
Not too long that we griped about the lack of movies that keep the turnstiles busy, comes Muthirai, packed with action, sentiment, love and comedy good enough for two movies. Director Srinath knows his onions only too well and as a result, the racy story is further strewn with countless twists – some drab, but most of them surprisingly convincing fuelling the pace of the movie ensuring that there's never a dull moment in the script.

Muthirai's story is a tightly knotted web that unfurls during the course of the movie with the help of plot aids, significant with such fast-paced movies such as double crosses, treachery and felony.

In an ugly political feud, Anand's brother Saravanan gets shot and Anand slips into a coma, by the power-hungry Ponvannan who is next in line for the Chief Minister position. Much to his chagrin, the killing is secretly filmed and when he learns about it, the chase for the video begins. With that begins the script to fly and with only very few stumbling blocks the movie races at the speed of light.

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!

Thanks for the review. I watched the movie. Really it was a good entertainer. You will never have time to notice any negatives. It sa fast moving story. The whole story will interesting only when the suspense is maintained. Though its predictable, there are few twists and turns... These websites, in the name of review just post the whle plot excpet for few characters. So, better watch it without knowing the plot.
There are so many characters in the movie, that each gets only a 15 min role to play.
July maadathil song is pleasant. The first two songs are rocking with beats. One can never deny, that this movie could have been better with any of the leading heroes.
The movie has just shown the other face of life. The face where people hold a knife just a lead a life. Where betrayals are common.
Both heroes fit their characters. Lakshi Rai could have been less glamarous in the songs. Not a great role for Manjari.
Comedy in the thriller type of movie is blended.
I just felt at the end that I have watched only 1/2 an hour.
I would recommend for the movie once.  Good entertainer.
