A tourist guide dreams of marrying a foreigner and much to his surprise, he gets to accompany a French girl on a trip across the state. Can he make her fall in love with him?
Some bad movies dishearten you. Some anger you. While the rare few make you question their existence. Melnaattu Marumagan belongs in the third list. It is the kind of film that makes you wonder why it was made in the first place and for whom. True, there are a couple of familiar comedians, like Muthukaalai and Lollu Sabha Manohar, and the lead, Rajkamal, is a familiar face on TV, but in these times when going to the movies involves quite a bit of money, are they enough to entice the audience? And what about the storyline — does it manage to engage at least the ones that turn up? The theatre in which I saw had exactly eight members, of which there were three pairs of couples.
Wondering what eighth person was doing is more interesting and fruitful than sitting through this film. For, there is hardly a semblance of thought or craft in the film, with the scenes jumping from one to the next with no flow, and the filmmaking making even badly made TV soaps look better. So, there is Sakthi (Rajkamal), a tourist guide, who is having a dream-come-true moment, when he has to take Andreanne (Andreanne, who has dubbed for herself even though that doesn’t add anything to the film), a foreigner, on a trip. Is it so difficult to give us a couple of scenes to make us care about these characters or make us believe that they could fall in love. Unfortunately, we do not get even one scene that is remotely involving. And the all-round bad acting only makes it worse.
By the time we reach the interval point, you stop worrying about the movie’s existence and start questioning your own.
