Thanga Magan Movie Review: Jai Shankar plays a villain who has ladies kidnapped from their hotel rooms so he can rape and kill them. Motive – none. Rajini plays a pigheaded, chauvinistic bastard who attempts to rape Poornima because she dared to ask if he was really a man. But he falls in a patch of mud as he chases her across the forest, and she, being an idiot, saves him and they fall in love. Yes, that’s right – she falls in love with man who tried to RAPE her. You know, cause naturally it’s all her fault for provoking him. I’ll say this again: ATTEMPTED RAPE is no way to get a girlfriend, you fools! Nor is it any reason to fall in love.

So what distinguishes Jai Shankar’s villain from Rajin’s “hero”? Beats me. The rest of the movie is just as idiotic: a feud starts between Arun (Rajini) and Chitra (Poornima) because he succeeds in “kissing her without touching her!” as SP Bala gleefully proclaims in the opening song, Vaa Vaa Pakkam Vaa. (I’d been wondering for years which movie that song was from!)

This feud escalates when Chitra refuses to accept Arun’s gift, gets worse when Arun mistakes Chitra’s car for her own, she calls him a thief, and he vows to make her life miserable. His plan: to sabotage her future dance performances by appearing in them. Arun wins the dance competition...  [ More ]
