How shravan reunites his family? Why his mom leaves his father? Why his aunts despise his father? Forms the crux of the story.
Director Sundar C comes up with a banal story but his narrative style keeps you in engaging mode. The comedy scenes worked very well. Editing should have been crisper. Cinematographer has done a fabulous job. Costume designs are nice. Music composed by Tamizha is not catchy but he scored decent BGM. Production values are okay.
This is not a new role to Vishal, He did a stupendous job In the lead role. His comic timing is also superb. Hansika looked so gorgeous, She supported vishal very well. Santhnam did a fabulous job with his trademark comedy.veteran actors Prabhu, Thulasi, Ramya krishna, and kiran rathod did a good job.rest of the cast is okay in their respective roles.
On the whole, like title, Maga maharaju is an old wine in a new bottle. First half is quite entertaining. In second half filled up with emotional drama. Business wise, Maga maharaju will do average business at the box office. Watch It if your fan of vishal.
