Got a chance to see Maatraan movie, which has Surya in dual role, along with Kajal Agarwal. Maatraan is about a conjoined twins, who go through a series of life changing events.

Surya and Surya are born to a scientist-turned-businessman, who owns a top milk powder brand, which include chemicals that give temporary spurt in growth, but has disastrous long term consequences. The movie is all about how Surya uncovers the plot and punishes the bad guy – his dad!

Surya seems to have a liking towards movies with genetics. 7am Arivu was one movie with genetics and a lot of scientific explanations. Here again in Maatraan, there is genetics involved in the core plot of the movie, so I am going to call Surya, the ‘Genetics Hero’ from now on.

I dont know what is up with tamil movie directors and their affinity towards Russia. This is the third or fourth movie in tamil, that I have watched in the past few years, where the a major twist in the movie happens in Russia and our macho hero lands up there, beats all the bad guys and comes back victorious after solving the mystery.

Kajal Agarwal seems to be everywhere I look. May be I can start a Kajal Agarwal fans association as I seem to be mesmerised by her lack of acting.

The songs in the movie are nice but also very unique:

One duet song has one Surya dancing with Kajal Agarwal, while the second Surya just hangs around swimming and rowing. I have never seen a duet song before which has the hero romancing with the heroine and one more guy just hanging in there to give company 🙂 .

Another song has the words in fast forward mode, to show that it is in sync with the ballet dance that happens – as you guessed it right, it is in Russia – so it has to be a ballet and hence tamil song can have fast words to match it – see, it all makes sense when you introduce Russia into the picture.

Overall, this movie can be watched once, if you have nothing better to kill your time.
