Maara is a film that has caught the imagination of many as it has Madhavan and Shraddha Srinath in lead roles. Read our review to see if the film is worth watching or not.
Paaru(Shraddha Srinath) is so impressed by a story that she decides to find a similar love in life. Her profession takes her to Kerala where she meets Maara(Madhavan) whose story is so similar to what she read in her books. Things take so many turns that Paaru wants to unveil who this Maara is and what he has to do in her story. Well, how does she does that is the whole story.
For a change, Madhavan does not have anything to do with the film. His role is such that he is being looked for by the character of Shraddha. But in the little scenes that he gets, Madhavan does a good job. Shraddha Srinath is also good and brightens up the screen with her presence. But as an actor, she could have done well in many key scenes which demanded a lot from her. Senior artist Mouli is the real hero of the film with his solid performance. 
Not many know that Maara is the remake of the Malayalam film Charlie. It has a very good setup and is started so nicely by the director. Things are so naive, real, and soothing. But after a point, things get routine and make the proceedings dull. An excellent scene is followed by a lot of meandering parts. 
The narration doesn’t allow us, as a viewer to settle in the narrative properly. But what keeps you going from the word go is the cinematography with its warm hues. Kudos to Dinesh Krishnan and Karthik Muthukumar for a job well done.
Ghibran also takes a chunk of the credit for the charm the film oozes with his songs flowing with the narrative and never acting as a speed-breaker. In a nutshell, though Maara has a slow premise and dull narration, it is for those who love enchanting dramas with a purpose.
