The much awaited Sivakarthikeyan film Mr Local has released today. This time he has collaborated with Rajesh who was hoping to bounce bank after back to back failures. The film relies on the usual taming of the shrew template which has already been explored in films like Mannan.
Positives : Nayathara looks good and does what is required with regard to her role. Sathish’s comedy works to an extent and Raadhika Sarathkumar was a refreshing diversion from Saranya who usually plays such roles. The Takkunu Takkunu song which is beautifully shot.
Cons : Sivakarthikeyan’s numerous references get tired after a point and there is absolutely no proper conflict point in the face off between the two leads. Except Sathish the rest of the cast do very little in terms of comedy. Even Yogi Babu’s comedy is tiring. Towards the climax the film falls apart completely. Rajesh seems to have lost his touch completely after OK OK.
Overall Summary : A old dated plot which falls apart completely. Both Nayanthara and Sivakarthikeyan deserve better than this. It’s time to say better luck next time to the two stars.
Tickets Worth : 40/120
