Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam is a typical Selvaraghavan film, where you see a loser as the hero and a beautiful princess as a heroine. Just like any Selva film, here too the hero behaves like a total weirdo with well combed hair and nerdy specs. The heroine boozes, loves more than one person and occasionally mouths cuss word. So when parents of both the hero and heroine arranges a marriage between these two contrary couple, will they lead a prosperous life?
Just like any other love story, both the lead pairs trying to lead a normal life, fall apart and in the climax, they join together again but Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam becomes unique with Selvaraghavan's abnormal characterizations and the sexual conflicts between the lead couple.
Balakrisha Kola reminds Ravi Krishna of 7G Rainbow Colony while Wamiqa Gabbi is superbly talented and she has beautifully portrayed the bold role offered to her. Music composer Amrit is another great strength for the movie, his background score elevates the film to a different level,
The problem with Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam is that it's just a rehash of old Selva characters and only the basic plot if different, the film also lacks tempo that the pace is inconsistent.
Watch Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam only if you are a Selvaraghavan fan. If you hate Selva, this might irritate you!
