Quick Gun Murugun [Dr. Rajendra Prasad] is an unlikely superhero. He is a sincere South Indian cowboy who considers it his duty to serve and protect. The movie revolves around the misadventures of Quick Gun Murugun and his fight with his arch villain Rice Plate Reddy [Nasser].
Quick Gun Murugun enters into an epic battle that spans time and space, from a small South Indian village to Swarglok and then finally to the cosmopolitan Mumbai. He is torn between Mango Dolly [Rambha], who loves him and his first love Locket Girl [Anu Menon] and his loyalty is put to the test.
QUICK GUN MURUGAN depicts the war between good and evil and what makes it a novel experience is that the characters are straight out of 1970s. Director Shashanka Ghosh's choice of the subject as also the execution deserves credit.
But there's a hitch. There's too much Tamil in the film, which though explained by sub-titles, may prove a deterrent in non-Tamil areas. In fact, the South Indian appeal would restrict its penetration into the nook and corner of the country.
Dr. Rajendra Prasad and Nasser vie for top honours. Both excel. Rambha suits the role. Anu Menon is good. Raju Sundaram does a fine job. Vinay Pathak has a brief role. Ditto for Ranvir Shorey, Gaurav Kapur and Sandhya Mridul. Ashwin Mushran is first-rate. Kishori Balla [Anni] is perfect.
On the whole, QUICK GUN MURUGAN is an innovative experience. The adventures should appeal to the youth mainly.
