Despite the narrative issues of Maari, director Balaji Mohan managed to make his central character a lovable one. He brings back this character, Maari (Dhanush), one more time, but once again, the story that we get around this “naughtiest don” remains underwhelming.Gangster Maari squares off against Beeja, a hardened criminal who considers himself to be the God of death.

When the film opens, we are introduced to Kalai (Krishna), the son of a mighty don who is no more. Maari and Velu happen to be thick friends. When a rival gangster wants offers to cut a deal with him in the drug business, Velu, who was once a drug addict, refuses on Maari’s insistence. Meanwhile, Gangadhar Beeja (Tovino Thomas), a hardened criminal who badly wants to take revenge on Maari, uses this situation to create bigger problems. Maari 2 is essentially an unadulterated commercial film that balances all the masala elements and as a result, it is a jolly fun watch more than anything.

It looks like Dhanush is ready to follow in the footsteps of father-in-law Rajinikanth, as it is apparent in his dialogue delivery. The film also has a well-written female lead character in the form of Araathu Anandhi (Sai Pallavi), an intrepid auto driver who pines for Maari. It is a winsome character and Sai Pallavi’s performance is just right. The Dhanush, Sai Pallavi film may not hold a torch to the first film but it sure packs a spicy punch. Watch the movie and have fun.
