Mr. Local Movie Review

It becomes a mandatory thing to start off this ‘Mr. Local Movie Review’ to compare it with Rajesh’s erstwhile movies. His movies hardly had a substantial plot, but would travel engrossingly appealing with its screenplay. Not to miss the least of all such illustrations, which was Rajesh’s previous release ‘Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru’, which although was criticized at one end, was in contrast praised by general audiences for being a good time pass movie.


Rajesh movies always banks upon the witty lines and egoistic clashes between girl and boy, etc with some family sentiments blended with humour. In “Mr. Local”, we find the same elements, but this time, they aren’t packaged well.


The film opens with Manohar (Sivakarthikeyan) seen in the prison of Paris and as it happens in almost all the Rajesh movies, we need to wait till the climax. It’s a time-worn script that has Manohar from a middle class family and he has a lovable mother (Radhika Sarathkumar) and sister (Divya). He happens to come across Keerthana (Nayanthara), who is a well established businessman. Both of them bounce upon each other with ego clashes and that forms crux of the story.


The film has nothing in special to mention about. Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara have a sizzling chemistry. They both look good together and that’s one of the major plus. Sivakarthikeyan has made sure that he doesn’t miss to strike gold through this film. This is merely because his previous movies didn’t perform well in box office with attempts to be a mass hero failing. Now it is so much nice to see him in this avatar after Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam. When it comes to humour – only Yogi Babu manages to give an impressive appeal while Satish and Robo Shankar trying to give their best, but are just okay. Radhika Sarathkumar is no different from what Lakshmy Ramakrishnan, Renuka or Saranya Ponvannan had done as mothers of heroes in the previous films of Rajesh. Musical score by Hiphop Aadhi is okay that would gain the interest of youth.

On the flip side, the film looks so much illogical and yes, it’s a part of Rajesh movies where we find them impressive only with witty lines and hilarious performances. But here, there is no proper story and we get to see most of them are dull moments, except for the few portions.

Overall, Mr. Local has some good witty lines, but lacks proper narration and engrossing story.


Verdict: Mr. Local remains middling in places and doesn’t offer wholesome entertainment


Rating: 2.25/5
