Two youngsters are on a lookout for Marakathamani, the miraculous gem of the 19th century king Vikramaditya. It was the king’s lucky charm which is buried with him. But the gem is cursed and has claimed the lives of 132 people after they claiming possession of it.
Raghunandan (Aadhi Pinisetty) joins his friend Bujji in the city to make some quick bucks by smuggling petty things. They decide to do something big and stumble upon an opportunity to retrieve Marakathamani, which had mysteriously taken lives of people who laid their hands on it.
However, undeterred, the guys seek help from a swamiji played by Kota Srinivasa Rao, who advises them to call out for a spirit to help them escape the wrath of Marakathamani. Ever since, things take a turn and they get more than what they have asked for.
The movie is a genuine attempt to pull off a fantasy-adventure-comedy and its characters and story will not disappoint you. Director ARK Saravanan has put up a compelling pre-production work for the film, which will not disengage the viewer, despite some drag during the first half.
Aadhi Pinisetty steals the show with his charming looks and subtle acting. Actress Nikki Galrani braved to do the character of Alekhya and does a decent job. After a very long gap, audience will get to see the age-old baddie Anand Raj in a different yet impressive role as Twinkle Ramanadham. Rest of the characters have done their bit and compliments the plot of the film.
Though Brahmanandam’s character in the movie seemed out-of-place, we understand its inclusion by the makers to add a little local flavour to the plot. Nonetheless, the actor did what he does best – evoke laughter. Except for a little Tamil flavour, Marakathamani will pass off as an above average flick with some apt background score by Dhibu Ninan Thomas that accentuates the film’s pace and narration.
The film can be termed as a must-watch for those who like out-of-the-box and experimental plots with a dash of comedy set in perception.
