Mr. Local: Film Review – Love At Constant Loggerheads

Verdict: Mr. Local is a comic relief filled with laughter and witty dialogues.

After a big hit with Siva Manasula Sakthi, M Rajesh is back with what seems like another blockbuster movie. Mr. Local celebrates his directing, writing and storytelling skills with Udhayanidhi Stalin and K.E. Gnanavel Raja as producers. After Velaikkaran, Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara are back together on screen once again in this endearing comedy. Dinesh Krishnan and Arthur A. Wilson strike a balance between foreign and Indian landscapes with accurate cinematography and professionalism. Hiphop Tamizha proves to be worthy of his name by tuning funky and stirring music. Nevertheless, the movie is incomplete without the presence of evergreen and classy actors like Raadhika, Yogi Babu, Sathish, and Robo Shankar. In its entirety, the movie includes an experienced crew set to hit the box office big time.

What’s Mr. Local About:

Mr. Local is the story of Manohar (Sivakarthikeyan) who is a staff member at one of the most renowned car showrooms. In an unsolicited situation, he bumps into the influential and arrogant Keerthana Vasudevan (Nayanthara). The two hold a grudge against each other and in a sardonic way, they repeatedly end up together in an unresolved dispute. Eventually, Manohar falls in love with her and takes the courage to confess, but destiny has more drama in store for the couple. Intriguingly, the movie is not about love but how Manohar falls in love with Keerthana despite all the negative traits that she possesses.

What Works:

The scenic beauty of Paris stirs a worthy opening for the local hero Sivakarthikeyan. The director’s soft corner for Tamil Nadu is visible through the film’s dialogues and scenic interplay arising in Chennai. The roads, residences, and upcoming industries are precisely captured by the camera. The fascinating part is the comic timing molded with situations, sarcasm, and instant dialogues. The dialogue writer’s magic with lines and sarcasm are enhanced by Raadhika, Yogi Babu, Sathish, Robo Shankar, and Narayan Lucky. The scenes are composed in a way that the audience is bound to have a hilarious experience throughout. Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara prove to be an irresistible and unbeatable pair in their second movie together, where their acting and originality outshine every other factor in the movie. The music is undeniably loud, jumpy, trippy, and energetic. It has the soul of local Chennai that is revived every now and then with more grooves and moves. Nayanthara, the epitome of boldness and beauty, stands untouched and strong as usual, playing the role of a snobbish rich woman with an unbearable attitude. The action scenes are original, simple, and realistic in nature.

What Could’ve Been Better:

The lengthy movie could have been cut down considerably, but comedy becomes a savior here. The director could have put some light on Keerthana’s character to enlighten the audience about her reasons for being suspicious, skeptical, and moody all the time. The storyline could have engulfed the audience with a more entertaining plot. Otherwise, the movie justifies its name with Siva’s action and local dialogues.

Why You Should Watch:

This cult movie is fashioned for Siva and Nayanthara’s fans casting an unbound screen space and importance to both the characters. This romantic action comedy bestows the audience with color, style, action, sheer romance, masala steps, laughter, smartly framed dialogues, and nothing else but the local Tamil culture.
