MGR Magan starts with a set of experiences example on Theni. As the initial credits roll, we are shown the significance of Col John Pennycuick and the Mullaiperiyar dam he built, and how the British official is as yet a diving being in numerous spaces encompassing Theni. We even get an initial tune that lifts up our legend ‘Anbalippu’ Ravi (Sasikumar), yet gives equivalent,
if not more, significance to Pennycuick. Presently, with the sort of discussions in our adjoining State in regards to this dam, it was a serious threat that this Ponram film indicated handling such a politically charged topic. Well… think about who didn’t get the “don’t add a lot to a film” reminder?
MGR Magan is about a stressed dad-child condition shared by MG Ramasamy (Sathyaraj) and Ravi. Saranya Ponvannan, who proceeds from where she left off in Em Magan, Kalavani, and Velayilla Pattadhari, plays the hapless mother conflicted between a dueling father and child.
The other chief person in this useless family condition is Agni (Samuthirakani), who promises not to wear a specific piece of clothing till his nephew Ravi becomes famous in the public arena. There is a perfect little gag about Ravi making an honest effort to highlight himself on the first page of a paper (a squandered potential). There is another little gag about Samuthirakani’s marriage (incredibly unfunny).
