As the trailer says the naughtiest don of our times Maari is back. The stand out feature of the trailer is surprisingly Yuvan Shankar Raja who teases us with a little glimpse of what he has in store for us in the film. Looks like Yuvan is going to be an apt replacement for Anirudh. As usual there’s loads of fun with Robo Shankar giving Dhanush company. Unlike the first part Sai Pallavi too joins the fun. Somehow it feels like the romance is going to be perfect with two livewire performers. It’s been a while since we saw perfect chemistry but this might just be one.
Dhanush carries over the swag from the first part to this one too. It is amazing that an actor who can do something as intense as Anbu and switch over to being funny with Maari. The dialogues too return and as usual they pack a punch. It is only fitting that the trailer ends with Senjuruven. There’s Varalakshmi who makes a return with another tough role. Kali Venkat too reprises his role from the first part giving a sense of familiarity to the film. It does appear to be a perfect mass masala.
The biggest addition though is the star of Malayalam Cinema Tovino Thomas who is constantly shining in different films. This is also another different attempt for him in Tamil. Tovino Thomas in a perfect mass masala should fit in quite admirably. He does seem menacing as the able foe. Dhanush vs Tovino Thomas should be an interesting battle to watch out on screen. A good Villain is a rarity Tovino Thomas might just be the perfect villain. There’s Kazhugu Krishna too. This December 21st should be a perfect treat for movie buffs with films of three big stars releasing on the same day.
There’s one dialogue which is absolutely comical ” If you are bad. I am your Dad”. It is being meme material on social media with numerous memes.
The signs point to Maari 2 ending the sequel drought with box office success. But Dhanush vs Sivakarthikeyan vs Vijay Sethupathi should be an interesting battle
