Maari 2 review: Formulaic mass action entertainer
Maari 2 works for Dhanush and Sai Pallavi fans.
Critic's Rating: 2.5/5
Friday 21 December 2018
Dhanush, Sai Pallavi, Tovino Thomas, Robo Shankar, Vinoth, Varalakshmi, Kreshna,
However, Maari strictly opposes the idea. Meanwhile, there is Beeja aka Thanatos (Tovino Thomas) who seeks revenge against Maari for murdering his brother. When Beeja escapes from prison, he joins hands with Maari’s opponents and sketches a cunning plan to separate the latter from Kalai.
The supporting cast like Varalakshmi, Robo Shankar, Vinoth and Kreshna are all adequate and have nothing much to do. Technically, Yuvan Shankar Raja proves that he is the best when it comes to background score but songs are disappointing and not on par with the first part. Om Prakash’s cinematography in slow motion shots are impressive and he has also superbly captured the picturesque Tenkasi locales. Editor GK Prasanna has also done a neat job in packaging the film which has so many things to convey in 150 minutes.
#Maari2: Full meals for @dhanushkraja fans as the star in him takes over in full swing. The first half is twisted in the right ways, after which it surprises you with a unique turn and then gets back to 'mass' mode. D, Sai Pallavi and Tovino are solid!

#Maari2 - My rating 3/5. Enjoy a typical hero-driven, fun mass masala action entertainer. The theater mood will lift your experience. @dhanushkraja @directormbalaji @Sai_Pallavi92 @thisisysr are all in good form
@varusarath, @ttovino, @Actor_Krishna, Robo, Vinoth are adequate.
#Maari2 - Final verdict: Well packed mass action entertainer. Better than the first part for sure. IMO @directormbalaji has a winner. Second half filled with sweet surprise in form of @Sai_Pallavi92 's role. Needless to say @dhanushkraja nails it with his #Maari swag.
