Majestic Multimedia Limited's Mirattal (Remake of Telugu film 'Dhee') finally released after the title issues were sorted. The film was previously titled 'Thillu Mullu', but was later renamed as 'Miratta'l as original 'Thillu Mullu' is being remade. Acting smartly, the team put its tagline as 100 per cent 'Thillu Mullu' and finally settled down with 100 percent Golmaal. The film was promoted by Mediaone Global Entertainment Ltd as an action entertainer. So has the film justified its tagline? Read on!

What's it about?

The film has nothing new in terms of story and goes by an age old formula. Bablu (Vinay), a happy-go-lucky guy is being sent by his dad to Shankar Dada (Prabhu) - a local bigwig - to get him some sense. Bablu, an intelligent guy that he is, helps Shankar with his work. He not only saves lot of money for him but also helps him in averting an IT raid. This impresses Shankar Dada, so he asks Bablu to take care for his sister, Deepika (Sharmila Mandre). As expected, they fall in love with each other and get married without the knowledge of Shankar Dada. Meanwhile, there is Suri (Pradeep Rawat) who is desperately trying to kill Deepika as his son was killed by Shankar Dada in a fight, but fails  repeatedly. Whether Suri finally takes revenge? Has Shankar Dada found out about his sister marriage? This forms the rest of the film with mix of action and humour.

What works?

The film works mainly due to Santhanam and his comic antics. He provides instant laughter whenever he appears on the screen with his usual witty oneliners and body language. In fact, his comedy worked in this film better than his recent hyped movies. Not only him, there is a huge ensemble cast of Pandiarajan, Ganja Karuppu, Uma Padmanathan, providing a healthy dose of laughter. It makes the film sail through in most parts without much action. It's a cakewalk for veteran Prabhu as Dada.

After facing failure in 'Madurey' and 'Arasangam', director Madhesh played it safe with a proven film in Telugu. Going by the trend right now, he concentrated more on entertainment than action which worked to the film's advantage. Kannan's camera work is noteworthy for capturing the exotic foreign locales in the songs.

What doesn't work?

Chocolate boy Vinay is good at romance but he has to hone his dancing skills to establish himself as commercial hero and also has a long way to go in terms of getting the right kind of emotions in action sequences. Newcomer Sharmila is just about okay. Songs by Pravin Mani is a big let-down and not a single song is hummable. Background music is too loud and not in sync with the mood.

What to do?

The film lacks in the action department but makes up for it by scoring on the entertainment front. It's a one-time watch!

In.com rating – 2.5/5
