Suriya² is how the credits roll for Maattrraan (Brothers in Telugu), the fifth double role by the actor after Perazhagan, Vel, Vaaranam Aayiram and 7aum Arivu. And thanks to him, it is double the performance and double the fun, though it would have meant enormous effort on his part to portray both the characters in a very convincing manner.Maattrraan 2012 Movie Download.
It would also have been double the work for cinematographer S Soundar Rajan and VFX supervisor V Srinivas Mohan, whose world-class work is one of the highlights of the film. The live action and the graphics blend seamlessly on screen in all the scenes involving the conjoined twins. The biggest challenge for a VFX supervisor is that the special effects should not stick out like a sore thumb, and Srinivas Mohan passes the test with distinction. The fight sequence in an amusement part is one of the highlights of the film, and stunt supervisor Peter Hein and Soundar Rajan come up with some imaginative and eye-catching visuals to captivate the audience.
Sachin Khedekar is in top form playing the genetic scientist, who is not concerned about the loss of human life and is only bothered about his research, though the role would not have taxed the seasoned performer of movies such as Astitva and Bose – The Forgotten Hero. Kajal Agarwal as the foreign language translator Anjali and Thara as the mother of the twins come out with competent performances.
All of K V Anand’s films try to engage the audience in social issues. If Kana Kanden was about water scarcity, Ayan spoke of smuggling and Ko was about the media and the youth in politics.The movie has a running time of close to three hours, and editor Antony should have persevered with the director to reduce it as a lot of time is expended on scenes that could have been easily sacrificed to make it a much more compact package. Or maybe Anand also needed a ‘Maattrraan’ (alternate) to step in when he lost his way.
