Ok Bangaram

My Review:- 2.75/5




Genre: Love - Romance

Theatre watched : Arjun 70MM

Censor Rating : "U/A" 

Run time : 138 Min

Pre release Expectations :
Mani Ratnam after a series of set backs with films like "Kadali" and "Raavan" is back with a romantic drama "Ok Bangaram"...Mamoothy's son Dulquer Salmaan and Nitya Menen are playing the lead cast...A.R Rahman scored tunes for this flick...PC Sreeram handled camera work for this movie...Let's see whether this movie changes the fate of Mani Ratnam???

Did it reach the expectations ???

My Review :- 
"Ok Bangaram" brings back the vintage Mani Ratnam...Though the movie isn't that engrossing it is far better than the previous Mani Ratnam's movies...On the whole,a slow paced average romantic drama...!!!

Highlights:-
Dulquer Salmaan carried his role wonderfully.Skill set of Mamoothy just got translated to Salmaan and it is clearly visible.
Nitya Menen is superb in her role.
Chemistry between the lead pair is sizzling.
AR.Rahman's back ground score elevated the movie.Music is also the biggest plus point.
PC.Sreeram's cinematography is top notch.
Vintage Mani Ratnam is back and he looked like that he is back to his groove.  
     
Disappointments:- 
Movie is tad slow.
Pretty plain story with an ordinary screenplay.
Limited to A class audiences.
Climax is disappointing.
Second half is very slow.  

Engaging moments:-.   
Rahman's back ground score and PC Sreeram's cinematography.
