It takes a special kind of talent to totally make a mess out of a minimalist thriller about a psycho killer with split personality disorder. And, JR Kannan does that with Maayai, which plays out as an unintentional comedy for the most parts. We cannot expect subtlety in a film that makes the villain wear T-shirts that read 'Playboy' and 'I'm bad', but we want at least a clear sense of mise-en-scene, even more so because the film's central twist revolves around multiple personality disorder. But the film has the vibe of a shoddily-made student film and it becomes difficult to take it seriously. So, when the twist comes, we feel cheated, and when we look back at the past events after the revelation, it only becomes all the more illogical.
