    Verdict - VIP revisited !

    Thanga Magan (Nava Manmadhudu)Watch trailerRelease date : December 18, 2015

    Dhanush's Thanga Magan is a predictable family entertainer with elements to satisfy the actor's diehard fans. The film indeed starts of on a positive note and the fun moments involving Dhanush's innocent character are captivating. Although we have seen Dhanush stalking young girls in several films, he makes it interesting with every given opportunity.

    Portions involving Dhanush and Amy will be loved by teenagers, while the scenes with Samantha will be loved by guys in their mid 20s. But one wonders why the director chose Amy ? An Indian girl would have been perfect for the role but now the character wasn't justified and looks artificial.

    Samantha too looks dull with her makeup but she compensated it with her performance. The major problem with Thanga Magan is the predictable screenplay, which has been written with the blockbuster Velai Illa Pattadhari template.

    If Dhanush's mom died in VIP, here we have the actor's father dies. Just like VIP, here too we are having two heroines and a comedian. VIP had a weak 'Amul' baby villain and here he has been replaced by another stone face, Adith.

    While VIP had brilliant songs, Thanga Magan 's music is ordinary and fails to touch our heart and it's not peppy either. But the production cost of the film seems to be very less that the entire film has been shot at two to three buildings, so there is nothing much to boast about Thanga Magan and its just a decent family entertainer, which can be watched once!
