Mr.Marumakan deals with Ashok Chakravarthy (Dileep) & his attempts to save his family properties from bank seizing them by marrying millioanire childhood friend Raja Lakshmi (Sanusha) and in the process teaching the lesson of love and life to Lakshmi's arrogant rich mother Raja Mallika (Khushbu) & grand mother Raja Kokila (Sheela) with the help of Balasubrahmanyam (Bhagyaraj) Mallika's husband.

The film is a non-stop rollicking no brainer entertainer with enough mass elements to make everybody happy, clap & whistle.

The film is once again an out an out Dileep-tainer. He is once again in top form after blockbuster Mayamohini. But its better than Mayamohini & Karyasthan , both again written by Udayakrishna, Siby K. Thomas duo. There is a deliberate attempt to project him as a superstar but without deviating from the comedy angle which made him click big time, especially with ladies & kids, and it worked to a T. Loved the way the flash back scenes were shown with clips from old films. Also loved the way they showed the titles with photographs everyone along with the names.

Khusbhu as the rich, arrogant mother in law was superb. She simply rocked in the role with grey shades and  stood along with Dileep in terms of screen presence. It was a treat to watch a near perfect Lip Sync eventhough Bagyalakshmi's sound felt a bit odd for her.

Bhagyaraj also did a very good job, a lengthy role after a while i think. The supporting cast of Biju Menon, Suraj, Baburaj, etc were also good, eventhough Sheila was bit over the top.

The BG was massy enough and suited the genre of the film pretty much eventhough a bit loud at times. 
The Songs were average except the title track.

Like all Dileep films this one is also not free from double meaning jokes, eventhough few in number, but we saw even ladies ROFLing in Mayamohini, so not a big issue now a days i think.

The film at 2 hours 57 minutes drags at many places in the second half, need to trim by a good 15-20 minutes. There was no need of that rain song. 

The story is a mix of many Tamil movies, which even featured Khusbhu & her husband Sundar.C !!

So All in all a perfect festive entertainer, Go and have a BALL this festive season


Festive Entertainer



Box Office 

 Looking at the response after the show & the queue in front of theaters , it should be a Super Hit
