Boss Engira Bhaskaran

Medium : Tamil
Starring : Arya, Nayantara, Santhanam, Subbu Panchu, Vijayalakshmi
Director : M.Rajesh

Music : Yuvan Shankar Raja

After enjoying the success of historical subject 'Madrasapattinam', rising star Arya has come up with a comic entertainer, 'Boss Engira Bhaskaran'. He got Nayantara as his pair for the first tim
e. It is produced by big banner Red Giant Movies. M.Rajesh ('Siva Manassile Sakthi' fame) has directed the movie. His first movie was having actor Jeeva in lead role and Arya doing a guest appearance and for 'Boss Engira Bhaskaran', the former one comes in the guest role, which is a coincidence to be noted.

Bhaskaran (Arya) is an easy going guy, who is spending his life in a don't care manner, without doing any job. He is still struggling to pass his arrears. On one such appearance, he met Chandrika (Nayantara), a college lecturer. He started loving her. His elder brother's (Subbu Panchu) marriage is fixed with Chandrika's sister (Vijayalakshmi). Bhaskaran told the love matters to his brother's wi
fe, but she doesn't agrees saying about the irresponsible attitude in life. Bhaskaran leaves the house with the ambition of finding a job and make money, whether he succeeded in it or not is shown in the later portions of 'Boss Engira Bhaskaran'.

The story of the movie is not a fresh one. These type hero roles has happened many times before in many languages. The hero's character lacks the stability that required and the way in which he succeeds and wins the heroine is a cinematic thing only. The characterization of hero's bother is realistic and Subbu Panchu (son of veteran producer Panchu Arunachalam), who did the hero's bother has performed well, but his voice is lacking the necessary gain in many portions. Vijayalakshmi ('Friends' fame) did well in his wife's role also. Like 'Yaaradi Nee Mohini', 'Vallavan' and 'Kalvanin Kaathali', Nayantara is having a domination character; since his looks are more suited for such types of roles, she is good. Though it is not an extra ordinary effort, Arya is also ok for the role. Santhanam, who comes as the hero's friend, has got many laughing situations to handle. Shakila's role is a repetetive one only.

The cinematic spoof done for Jeeva's guest character is not an easily digestive one. His guest role is not so charming as Arya's one in 'Siva Manassile Sakthi'. The episode involving the tutorial college should have been done in a more serious way. The way in which the hero talks to his lover in the class room cann
ot be accepted and the way in which the love at first sight situations are created also needs more clarity. It has now become a trend in using the Ilayaraja songs as bg score, but here in some situations they felt awkward. The group dancers for the marriage song should have been avoided.

Songs by Yuvan Shankar Raja are not so excellent to be remembered. Some colorful visuals has been given by Sakthi Saravanan ('Chennai600028', 'Saroja', 'Goa' fame cinematographer). Vivek Harshan ('Big B', 'Sagar Alias Jackie' fame) is the editor.

If there are no choices, you can watch 'Boss Engira Bhaskaran'. Please note that it is just an average movie only...

Rating : 5.5 / 10
