Director Rajesh has managed to hold the audiences intact with entertainers and almost all his movies have been good fares among all centres. Mr. Local starring Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara in lead roles happens to be his latest outing. The film is produced by K.E. Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green Films with Hiphop Aadhi composing music. Let us have a look into the analysis of this film.
Manohar (Sivakarthikeyan) happens to be a guy from middle class family leading an ordinary life with his mother (Radhika Sarathkumar) and sister (Divya). His life takes a turn, when he comes across Keerthana Vasudevan (Nayanthara), MD & CEO of KV Entertainments and Enterprises. Both of them bounce upon each other and then begin their egoistic clashes that are narrated with fun and entertainment.
Having used the words ‘Fun and Entertainment’, they have always been an integral part of Rajesh movies. However, it comes slightly in dearth through ‘Mr. Local’. Yes, there are myriad actors who can actually relentlessly keeps our funny bones tickled, but they aren’t working out the magic anywhere to a greater extent. Sivakarthikeyan does a neat job throughout the film. it is noticeable that he has involved himself in the screenwriting and dialogues too alongside Rajesh.
One thing is pretty sure about Sivakarthikeyan is that he has given the best efforts to make sure he bounces back to best form as in Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam. But that doesn’t keep the film going as engrossing as Rajesh’s erstwhile movies. Nayanthara looks so much chubby and it is the only highlight in the film and her performance isn’t really good. Well, there isn’t much for her to perform too other than showcasing the attitude. In fact, we are urged by this situation to compare it with her acting in Boss Engira Baskaran, where she had a decent spell. Robo Shankar could have got few more extensions, which would have made the film more engaging. Satish is somewhat okay and that’s for his combination with Sivakarthikeyan. Yogi Babu steals the show after a long time.
When it comes to narration, the first half proceeds with a lighter pace and as the story progresses towards second half, it gets quite intact although they are predictable. Musical score by Hiphop Aadhi doesn’t work out greatly and the visuals too look mediocre in few places.
On the whole, Mr. Local will work out well among the audiences for the summer season, but if you’re looking into it based on critical analysis, then it’s a decently middling fare barring loopholes and logical misses.
