Vishal’s Mark Antony trailer stuck a chord among the audience. After the impressive trailer, Mark Antony has been realeased in theatres. Here’s the review of Mark Antony:
Plot: Antony (Vishal) and Jackie Marthand (SJ Suryah) are thick friends. They are gangsters in Chennai in the year 1975. They want to take control of the city and create an enemy in Ekambaram (Sunil). Ekambaram’s brother gets killed by Antony. Ekambaram decides to avenge his brother’s killing.
On the other hand, Chiranjeevi (Selvaraghavan) works on a time-travel telephone. Antony’s son Mark son finds the machine in 1995. He tries to know about his father’s past. What happens when he uses the telephone? That’s what the film is about.
Performances: Vishal and SJ Suryah deliver brilliant performances, but the latter dominates more with his excellent acting skills. Vishal did his best but not as much as Suryah does. Sunil rocks in his role of a semi-villain. Ritu Varma of Pelli Choopulu fame gets very minimal role. It wouldn’t have been any problem if she wasn’t part of the film. Abhinaya and others are also seen.
- Comedy quotient.
- Suryah’s performance
- Background music
- The fantasy element
- Showing the gangsters as eccentric creatures
Analysis: Mark Antony has good story but its lacks perfect execution by director Adhik Ravichandran. There will be a few comedy scenes which will evoke laughter. Some confusing details could have been done away with.
If you question the logics, you won’t get the point of this fantasy. The best part is the pre-climax phase. Vishal deserves a special mention for the climax part. Ritu Varma and the actress who played the Silk Smith lookalike add to our woes.
The cinematography takes us to the retro feel of the past. The music by GV Prakash is okayish.
Verdict: Mark Antony tests your patience. I don’t suggest you to watch it all.
