Producer CV Kumar has turned director with Maayavan, which has Sundeep Kishan, Lavanya Tripathi, Daniel Balaji, Jackie Shroff, Akshara Gowda and others in the cast. The film has Gopi Amarnath's cinematography and Leo John Paul's editing. Ghibran has composed the music for the Tamil flick and a few tracks that include Mella Mella have impressed the viewers.
Maayavan is a science fiction for which filmmaker Nalan Kumarasamy has penned the screenplay. The movie revolves around a series of murders. It is a mystery thriller that takes interesting twists at regular interval.
While chasing a smaller criminal, cop Kumaran (Sundeep Kishan) comes across a sadistic villain played by Dheena. In his bid to nab the criminal, Kumaran gets hurt, leading him to discover the mental trauma that he was going through.
In the same fashion, a series of crimes shock the police department, but there are a few similarities in the cold-blooded murder. What follows next is the interesting part of the story.
Going by the viewers' response, the narration is good although the first half is runs at a slow pace. But the story progresses rapidly in the second half. Performance wise, Sundeep Kishan gets full marks and has lived up to the viewers' expectations.
Daniel Balaji has enacted his role well. Ghibran has provided a solid background score, while the cinematography and editing are flawless.
