When contemplating making a movie about spiritual politics, pretend god males and blind religion, you might want to stroll a tightrope in the way in which you handle the topic as a result of we reside in a nation the place individuals take offence very simply. Most individuals suppose it is their birthright to get offended, particularly if their perception system (involving god) is questioned. What RJ Balaji, as author and director of Mookuthi amman, does that he turns blind religion in god and god males on its head and raises pertinent (not often controversial) questions in essentially the most light-hearted (with out insulting sentiments) method.
RJ Balaji performs Engles Ramasamy, a native TV reporter and the only real breadwinner of his household. He lives together with his mother (Urvashi), grandfather and three sisters, and struggles to make ends meet. As an intrepid reporter, anticipated after a large story involving a godman Bagavathy Baba (Ajay Ghosh), who has illegally occupied many acres of public land and desires to construct Panchavanam, which he promotes because the religious capital of the world. To assist Ramaswamy cease Bagavathy Baba from usurping the land of the general public, goddess Amman (Nayanthara) involves the rescue. How Ramaswamy’s household, with the assistance of Mookuthi Amman, attempt to cease Bagavathy Baba kinds the story.
One of the explanation why Mookuthi Amman works wholesomely is as a result of it was a devotional movie. Served an out-and-out entertainer that by no means will get preachy to make its level. It takes the much less controversial path to make its level on spiritual politics and faux god males whereas retaining the narrative as humorous as attainable. Unlike OMG: Oh My God or PK, Mookuthi Amman by no means will get too severe about its commentary on our blind religion in god and god males.

The subsequent scene questions those that forcefully convert individuals however the tone is just not offensive. This method is what makes it much less controversial and RJ Balaji and his crew of writers deserve reward for this effort.
Nayanthara enters the body half an hour into the movie. As a lot as her presence provides a lot of weightage to the movie, it is Urvashi who steals the present along with her easy display screen presence. As the mom of the household, her comedian timing is flawless and she or he will get a number of the movie’s greatest moments. Nayanthara, as regular, is her effervescent self and is immediately likable as a goddess. RJ Balaji, because the actor, brings in a barely over-the-top efficiency nevertheless it fits his character and by no means stands proud like a sore thumb. Ajay Ghosh as Bagavathy Baba is essentially the most animated character you may see in Tamil cinema in recent times. A cross between Jaggi Vasudev and NithyaNandha, you get a barely exaggerated efficiency from him nevertheless it actually goes effectively together with his character.
