JUST ENJOY: Vikram and Asin in Mazaa.
Cast: Vikram, Asin, Pasupathy, Manivannam, Vadivelu, Vijay Kumar
Director Shafi, who had directed "Tommanum Makkalum" in Malayalam, held the megaphone again for the Tamil remake. It was claimed to be a bilingual film, `Mazaa' in Telugu. However, only one scene was re-shot with the Telugu word `Mazaa'. The film is nothing but a dubbed version. Vikram has left no stone unturned to make it a success. But lack of Telugu touch might hamper its prospects. Hari Prasad (Vikram) and Adi (Pasupati) run away from an orphanage. Brought up by Govindu (Manivannan), they resort to robbery to eke out a living.
One fine day, they reform themselves and want to live a normal life. They sell their properties, purchase a lorry and leave their native in search of work. As their vehicle gives trouble, they stay in the house of one Raja Rao (Vijaykumar), who faces harassment from the feudal landlord called Rayudu (Murali). The trio helps Raja Rao oppose Rayudu. One day in a fit of anger, Prasad marries Sita (Asin), daughter of Rayudu. As Sita claims that she is in love with Prasad, Rayudu decides to perform their marriage on a grand scale. However, Rayudu's brother-in-law, who had eyed Sita and her property plays tricks to separate Prasad and Adi. Will he succeed in separating them? How will Prasad make Rayudu realise the intentions of his brother-in-law? This forms part of the climax. Vikram's comedy timing is perfect. He deserves a pat for allowing Pasupati to have the upper hand in the first half. Manivannan performs well as father. Comedy by Vadivelu is tolerable. Asin's role is restricted to song sequences. Cinematography by Balasubramaniam of Sivaputrudu fame too adds to the movie.
