Maari 2 successfully enters second week of theatrical run
Maari 2 continues to fare well as the movie after its first week. In Kerala, despite the slew of native Christmas releases, the Dhanush starrer is still running in over 100 screens. Though the critic reviews have mostly been mixed, common audience, largely youth, have taken a liking for the movie. This Balaji Mohan directorial is the sequel to his 2015 flick ‘Maari’.
Although the first part was not a big hit, Dhanush’s character sketch and the music was a big rage. Naturally there was a good pre-release buzz and the opening response proved it. Unlike the first part, Maari 2 has a proper Tamil commercial packaging with equal dosage of mass elements, romance and emotions.
In the sequel, Dhanush reprises his role of the naughty don Maari. The female lead is played by Sai Pallavi, whose lively performance has won unanimous appreciation. Along with her, the other actor who won the bulk of praise is Tovino Thomas, who plays the villain role in the movie. Krishna, Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar, Robo Shankar and Vinoth also essay major roles in the movie.
