I called this film a regular Vikram fare because of two reasons – First being the fact that every Vikram film deals with social issues, and the second, it’s entertaining like all his films. This film just adds to the greatness of Vikram sir, whose previous entertainers like Aparichithudu have won over the people.
It’s really amazing to see Vikram sir as a superhero. His getup as the superhero is really fantastic. His performance is the best. Prabhu’s role is like a regular officer, but even he does well. Susi Ganeshan arrives in a small but fine role.
The best part of the film which I felt was realistic approach. This happens even in case of fight scenes. If you see superhero style flying action, you have the justification in the following scene. The action scenes are really amazing and the film hardly has any disturbing scenes at all.
However, the thing I didn’t like was the vulgarity by the heroine. Comedy track looked forced, but however it was good. The music seemed nice, and my favorite one was Mallanna track…
On the whole, if you are a fan of Vikram as well as realistic social superhero films, watch Mallanna. It’s so perfect that you won’t like to miss any part of it
Pros: Fights, superhero, Vikram's performance, locations, visuals, cinematography, gripping story and nice concept.
Cons: Heroine's excessive vulgarity, a bit too much of songs, needless comedy, a bit lengthy in second half
