Mersal Movie Reviews (Critic & Audience Reviews)

Vijay is Back To Doing What He Does Best


Mersal, that runs close to three hours, takes a long time to establish its characters and the plot. About a half an hour or so, we learn that Maaran (Vijay) is not just a doctor, but a five-rupee-fee doctor who wants to serve the people. We also learn that Maaran is also an illusionist (not a magician, theres a difference), whose tricks might raise your eyebrows quite often. At the same time, Maaran butchers a big-shot doctor somewhere in Paris.
Is he a doctor, magician or a criminal? For this, Atlees screenplay in the first half is very generic and the narrative falters at some places. Sometimes, a film might have had a larger impact by not trying too hard -- Mersal is one such film. When the reality kicks in, it gets engaging right before the interval, where Vetri (Vijay) gets a predictable yet grand entry.

Atlee Has Delivered A Celebratory Film - Hindustan Times


Mersal is not about the story. Its about the way it is delivered. The revenge drama concentrates on cleaning up corruption in the medical system. Daniel, who plays the role of a doctor, is the head of the food chain that feeds off of black money from the health department. What he sows in the past, he reaps in the future. In fact, one of the popular dialogues in the film is about this sentiment. This sentiment is the crux of the story.

People who troll Vijay, people who request him to join politics, who criticize him, they all seem to find a place in the film. The final speech seems to be completely about Vijays stance on everything that is being discussed today. The team has combined the real and the reel, complete with humour.

Its Vijay, Vijay, Vijay With a Political Message


The takeaway is political. Vijay is asked by Sathyaraj ,a cop: Are you a convict, a revolutionary, or the leader of a race? Vijay questions the rationale behind knocking liquor off the GST list, the obsessions with digital payments, and the freebie culture in Tamil Nadu In the song Alaporan Thamizhan, its about saving the bulls through Jallikattu.

Running as an undercurrent all along the film is the idolisation of yesteryear superstar and AIADMK founder MG Ramachandran. In one scene, Thalapathy storms into a movie hall to grab hold of a thug; in the background is MGR doing the same on screen. The message is not lost on anyone.

In sum, the three-hour movie isnt really nail-biting. But if actor Vijay were to enter politics someday, you cannot complain you never had a clue; unless you hadnt watched Mersal.

Engaging Mass Masala Movie - Times of India


Like the masala films that it tries to emulate, the film also has a longer duration. We get two flashbacks, one before the interval, and another post it. Atlee also gives a romantic track each to Vetri and Maaran. But these are just generic ones, but the two actresses, Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha, manage to provide some lighthearted moments in the miniscule time that they get. But the director makes up for it with the romance in the flashback involving Thalapathy and Nithya Menen, once again, comes up with an affecting performance.

The success of any revenge-based masala movie is the effectiveness of its antagonist and it is here that Mersal feels a little underwhelming. Atlee seems to have wanted an antagonist who is suave and sinister, but perhaps because we have only recently seen a terrifically over-the-top SJ Suryah in Spyder, his characterisation of Daniel Arockiaraj here comes across as a rather subdued villain, even though the actor does well.

மெர்சல் - மிரட்டல்


படத்திற்கு பெரிய பலம் எஸ்.ஜே.சூர்யாவின் நடிப்பு. வெள்ளை தாடியுடன் வரும் இவருடைய கெட்-அப் அப்லாஸ் அள்ளுகிறது. குறிப்பாக இவர் பேசும் வசனங்களுக்கு தியேட்டரில் விசில் பறக்கிறது. அவர் மருத்துவ துறையில் பணம் மட்டுமே குறிக்கோள் என்று வாழ்ந்துவரும் கதாபாத்திரத்தை உணர்ந்து யதார்த்தமாக நடித்திருக்கிறார்.

வடிவேலுக்கு இந்த படம் சிறப்பாகவே அமைந்திருக்கிறது. இவருடைய காமெடி மட்டுமல்லாமல், குணசித்திர கதாபாத்திரத்திலும் அதிக ஸ்கோர் செய்திருக்கிறார். சிறிது நேரமே வந்தாலும் மனதில் பதிகிறார் காளிவெங்கட். போலீஸ் அதிகாரியாக வரும் சத்யராஜ், அம்மாவாக வரும் கோவை சரளா ஆகியோர் கொடுத்த வேலையை செய்தாலும், அவர்களுக்கு இன்னும் காட்சிகளை கொடுத்திருக்கலாம்.
