Don't think it makes sense to analyze this film in terms of political correctness. But, in terms of craft, it has a rousing MGR performance, an incredibly funny Nagesh, some 'mass' moments, and great songs. Feeling grateful to experience a piece of Tamil Cinema history.
'Mugakavasa Mutham' has some good moments, but it's overall an uneven, artificial film that needed better writing (focusing more on its lead pair) and performances. Average.
'Loners' felt as if Halitha studied Twitter during lockdown & made a short film out of it. Will surely please a certain section of the app. But just like how Twitter has mostly surface level arguments, the film too is happy to have low ambitions. The film also has carefully planned aesthetics & contains good content…
A terrible rom-com that inaccurately portrays mental illness and is filled with logical loopholes. Only AR Rahman's music & score and Dhanush's comic timing are the positives in this poorly written film. Has middling performances, no scene staging, and happens in a post-covid universe where there are no doctors/mental health practitioners because, I guess, they were all busy treating other patients. Disappointed.
P.S. Should have realized I am going to be watching a "mokka" padam during the second/third scene where Dhanush, a doctor, is seen operating an electric pole.
