Southern star Mohanlal has accepted a Hollywood offer to star in a film named “Billion Dollar Raja”. The film is a drama based on the investigative financial mafia. It draws its inspiration from a true story based on the Galleon Group founded by Mr. Raj Rajaratnam and his vast network of the Wall Street big shots. Insiders of the corporate world, the employees, a trial team that is determined to punish those who are involved in this complex trading case is the backdrop of this film. This trading case has been the most complex in history.

Mohanlal has been approached to play the role of Rajaratnam in this film. The film “Billion Dolllar Raja” has approached Nayan Padrai for writing and directing it. The film will have Sheetal Vyas as its producer.

This film will shed light upon the fascinating network of relationships that are developed by the billionaire as a scheme to trade the secret information gathered from his vast network of corporate big shots. The Government found Mr. Rajaratnam guilty of securities fraud and conspiracies and sentenced him for 11 years in the federal prison.

Also another person who was involved in this case was Ms. Danielle Chiesi who is an ex-beauty queen who turned stock trader.

The director was quoted as saying while describing his film ““The elements of this case are irresistible with a mafia-style operation in the shady underbelly of Wall Street offices, filled with prosecutors, wiretaps, tipsters, a moll, sexual encounters, unapologetic greed, major corporations and the billionaire king of the markets, Raja,” .

This film will go on the floors next year during fall. The actor who will play the pivotal role of Danielle Chiesi has still not been decided. This film surely has a strong and interesting subject that will pull the crowds.

Maatran tamil movie review

Cast- Suriya, Kajal Agarwal, Isha Sharvani, Sachin Khedekar

Director- KV Anand

Producer- Kalpathi S Aghoram

Banner- AGS Agoram Entertainment

Music Director- Harris Jayaraj

The single release of this week has been “Maatran”. The film has released worldwide in two languages Tamil and Telugu.

Plot-

Ramachandra, played by Sachin Khedekar is a genetic scientist who is the father of conjoined twins named Akhilan and Vimalan. The role of the conjoined twins is played by Suriya. Ramachandra after struggling for long discovers baby milk powder and names it Energion.

The two twins are shown to have different characteristics. Akhilan is extrovert and witty, on the other hand Vimalan is composed and intellectual. The role of Anjali, who is a Russian translator, is played by Kajal Aggarwal. The twins develop an inclination towards her.

As the story progresses Vimalan gets to know that Energion has been adulterated by some harmful ingredients. This revelation costs him his life. The remaining story involves Akhilan’s efforts to know the truth behind all the happenings.

Performance-

Suriya is a sought-after actor. He is known for his power-packed performance and yet again delivers in this film. He fully utilised the opportunity of playing the twins with contrasted characteristics to prove his versatility.

Kajal Agarwal does not have a meaty role in the film. However, she plays her part with integrity.

Sachin Khedekar has a pivotal role and he performed it with full honesty.

Isha Shervani has a dance number in the film that will surely pull the masses to the theatres.

Technical Analysis:

The scriptwriters KV Anand and Subha have done a fabulous job yet again. However, the second half of the film is a tad bit slow. K.V Anand’s direction too has been controlled and well-ordered.

Harris Jayaraj’s music is average and sounds very similar to his previous renderings. Cinematographer S. Sounder Rajan has done a seamless job with his camera.

Verdict:

Maatran is an out-and-out entertainer with a tinge of action and comedy to cater to all kinds of the audience.

Rating:3/5
