Madhuraraja Review: Strictly for Mammootty fans
The film is filled with all the commercial potboiler elements which will make Mammootty’s fan happy.
"Raja solvathuthaan seiva, seivarath mattum thaan soluva"(literally means, Raja says what he does and does what he says). That’s exactly makers wanted, a punch dialogue which make the fan whistle and hoot.
There is action, there is a comedy, and a slight tinge of chauvinism, just so you don't miss it.
The premise of the story is Pambinthuruth needs their hero Madhuraraja when liquor baron Nadesham makes their hometown island his venue of crime. Though Chinna raja (Jai) is sent to contain a skirmish in the island things spiral out of his control and Madhuraraja needs to come to save the day.
Madhuraja is everything they promised it would be. It has ample over-the-top action choreographed by Peter Hein, the Megastar in a larger-than-life avatar, his slapstick comedy, and a dance-song by Sunny Leone. What it lacks in story and depth it makes up with the aforementioned. And, last but not the least, Madhuraja closes with a promise of a sequel, 'Minister Raja' where Madhuraja has becomes a minister of the state.
