My Thoughts
Director Lakshman of Romeo Juliet fame, is back with a fantasy thriller Bogan. The movie is based on body swapping where there is a thin line that differentiates the protagonist and the antagonist. The story is different and so is its treatment. There are several twists and turns which will entertain the audience and also keep them glued to their seats.
Bogan is the 3rd movie in which Jayam Ravi & Hansika are the lead actors. As usual, they come across as a striking pair. So does the duo Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy. They have truly lived up to the inevitable expectation after Thani Oruvan. Actors like Ponvannan and Nasser are great talented that is wasted.

In this film, just like Thani Oruvan, Arvind Swamy is the show stealer. The ease with which he carries off the character and the way he has handled the transition marks him yet again as a good actor. And, Jayam Ravi is only trying to match the steps with Mr. Swamy, thereby turning out to be a little confused, especially after the transition. Hansika has nothing much to do except to dance and do the glamor bit. She shines with her impeccable comic timing.

The movie is fast paced – thanks to the editor. Cinematographer has presented the film vibrantly and the fresh/young feeling we had while watching Romeo Juliet continues. D. Imman’s opening song Damaalu Dumeelu uses the latest dubsmash craze, giving the mass opening to the hero. Senthoora is not only sounds brilliant but also captured mesmerizingly. Having said that, songs like Koodu Vitty Koodu (b-o-g-a-n) and Vaaraai Vaarai hinders the flow of the film. In fact, they simply elongate the film.

Bogan is backed by a novel idea, stellar performances, interesting twists and turns, mesmerizing visuals and a great background score. However, it seems to be too long, redundant and tedious.
In short, it is a kind of movie that could be watched with family – a rare treat.
So, watch it once and forget the flaws!
