With great anticipation, Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi’s historic 50th film, Maharaja, opens in Tamil and Telugu theaters today. Check out our review to see how the movie does.

Story

A salon owner named Maharaja (Vijay Sethupathi) resides with his daughter Jyothi. He tells the police, on a fateful day, that three robbers have attacked him and taken his Laxmi (?). Unsure of Laxmi’s identity, the police grudgingly search but won’t register a case. Laxmi, who is she? Why is Maharaja so concerned? Are they going to locate her? Is winning Laxmi back Maharaja’s primary objective? The film will provide answers to each of these queries.

Positive Points in Maharaja Movie

When Vijay Sethupathi revealed he was starring in his 50th movie, everyone was excited about what kind of role he would be playing. Naturally, he adopts a fascinating persona that is a wonderful fit for him. Sethupathi’s acting is outstanding; he plays a naive father in the first half and a frantic man looking for his beloved Laxmi in the second. His commanding presence on screen elevates the whole film.

Even with little on-screen time, Anurag Kashyap gives a powerful performance. His brief appearance has a big impact on the movie.

The non-linear narration of the movie is its most notable aspect. The director expertly and captivatingly narrates a straightforward plot, captivating the audience.

Audiences will be in complete shock at the climatic twist, the interval blast, and the emotional passages. In these situations, Vijay Sethupathi excels, giving a brilliant performance with a natural ease that very few can equal.

Minus Points in Maharaja Movie

Although the screenplay is well-written, the narration’s twists and turns can add confusion to the well-known plot and make viewers think of a few other movies with related themes.

Vijay Sethupathi’s character is the main emphasis of the movie, with little to no growth for other performers like Bharathiraja, Mamta Mohandas, and Abhirami. Telugu viewers are less familiar with a few of these actors.

Not everyone will find the first half’s dark comedy relatable. It might be challenging to tell if a story is taking place in the present or the past when even five minutes are missing.

Technical Aspects

Writer and director Nithilan Swaminathan tells a gripping tale in his second picture, but the narration could need some tightening up. Parts of both halves go slowly, which could make viewers disinterested while they wait for things to happen.

Dinesh Purushothaman has done a good job with his cinematography. Philomin Raj’s production qualities are good, and his editing is passable. The memorable background score by Ajaneesh Loknath elevates poignant moments. The language and dubbing in Telugu are done effectively.

Verdict

Maharaja is, all things considered, a slow-burning tale of passion and retribution. The writing and Vijay Sethupathi’s outstanding performance keep the audience captivated. The key attractions are the dramatic interval and the heartbreaking ending with a jaw-dropping twist. But not everyone will enjoy the plodding narrative and undeveloped characters. Maharaja is a good movie to see this weekend if you like slow-burning dramas with respectable acting.
