There was gigantic promotion encompassing Karthick Naren’s Mafia – Chapter I, his second discharge after the profoundly amazing and discussed Dhruvangal Pathinaaru. It has an energizing star cast — the charming Arun Vijay, a fine entertainer like Prasanna and the flawless Priya Bhavani Shankar, and is bankrolled by driving makers Lyca Productions. The trailer and character blurbs of the Narcos-style spine chiller had turned into a web sensation and the pre-discharge buzz excessively was certain.
Mafia is bundled as a ultra-snappy film with a slender storyline and looks increasingly like another age wrongdoing arrangement on a gushing stage. It is moderate paced despite the fact that the run time is just 112 minutes, arrives at a crescendo in its take out large uncover peak, which is the feature. The shocking turn toward the end looks increasingly like a base for the one-line story for a Chapter II. The film doesn’t satisfy everyone’s expectations and desires you would foresee out of a Karthick Naren film.
It appears the screenplay was assembled in the wake of marking Arun Vijay and Prasanna together in the film. The fight lines are obviously drawn, as the slogan of the film says – the tracker versus the brute. The story depends on the go head to head between the Narcotics Control Bureau boss Aryan (Arun Vijay), who is attempting to chase down Diwakar (Prasanna), the medication master taking on the appearance of a good specialist. At an early stage, we are given a great deal of measurements that opiates use is expanding in the state which has seen a 60 percent spike and 300 revealed passings due to overdose of medications like cocaine.
Aryan chooses to take on the medication cartel, alongside his associates Sathya (Priya Bhavani Shankar) and Varun after his chief and another enemies of medications social dissident Mugilan (Thalaivasal Vijay) are shot dead. In the interim, Diwakar with the support of influential individuals in high places, attempts to frustrate his endeavors to reveal the medication mafia. What follows is a fascinating wait-and-see game between the two preceding their ways cross in the peak.
The primary half is loaded with character presentation and trudges alongside a feebly composed story. It additionally does not have the vitality that one may anticipate from such a plot. Nonetheless, Karthick causes it to up in the pacey second half, with the amazement and astounding peak wind. As it were, the unexpected turn toward the end raises the crowd’s desires for Chapter II. Arun Vijay is essentially tremendous and looks crushing as Aryan, while Prasanna as the smooth and calm enemy leaves an effect. Furthermore, Priya Bhavani Shankar might not have a lot of screen space yet one single scene in the peak when she weapons down a trouble maker shows the entertainer in her. Another major in addition to of the film is the music and sound plan. Jakes Bejoy’s experience score makes the correct state of mind and lifts the film. The activity scenes are arranged in an alternate example. In any case, there are excesses of moderate movement scenes, particularly in the principal half to show the swag for character presentation.
In general Mafia: Chapter I is gorgeously cut however has next to no substance. Be that as it may, the peak has aroused the desire meter for Chapter II. Actually, only for the brief peak shock wind we are going with a higher rating than it would have merited.
