Maari is a full action packed masala flick with zero substance. Three factors that saved this movie from a disaster rating were: good comedy skits, rocking #Anirudh music/bgm and Dhanush‘s (expected) powerful onscreen presence.
A key notable aspect of the film was Robo Shankar – he kept the movie flowing and the audience screaming with laughter. However, it was not enough, the story was very weak and the director tried to bank off Dhanush’s winning streak. Balaji Mohan failed to utilize Kajal as well, as she was used as a filler for music and romance. The cinematography was great and no complaints there.
