Quick Gun Murugun is a western spoof with attitude, featuring outlandish songs, outrageous melodrama and crazy action sequences including a classic duel in a traffic jam. The film tells the story of Quick Gun Murugun - a South Indian karmic cowboy whose duty is to protect and cows. When faced with a world-conquering arch villain restaurant owner who wants to create the ultimate McDosa chain using beef, Quick Gun enters into an epic battle of vegetarianism vs. non-vegetarianism that spans time and space, from a small South Indian village to an Indian heaven and then finally to a cosmopolitan Mumbai across 15 years.

Quick Gun Murugun is a little more than what you expect and yet falls short of your expectations. It is the wacky tale of a 'vegetarian-cowboy' who takes on Rice Plate Reddy and his gang of villains. It is also a spoof of too many things to count South-Indian-movies, standard bollywood masala movies, cowboy movies and even McDonalds !! Filled with smart jokes they will have you howling with laughter at the one liners. But believe it or not, the movie is somewhat of a drag .
Telegu star Dr. Rajendra Prasad plays gunslinger Quick Gun Murugan with élan bright orange pants and all. He is an avowed protector of cows and vegetarianism and soon runs into Rice Plate Reddy, who is on a quest to convert every Udipi restaurant into non-veg. Reddy gets the better of him in the first encounter and our hero is thirsty for revenge.
This time, he gets a little help from Mango Dolly (Rambha) Reddy's blonde moll who falls for our Murugun's simple charms. On Rice Plate Reddy's side there is Dr Django and Rowdy MBA who are implementing his plan of taking over the world with his dosas. And of course, there is our very own Lola Kutty with Murugun as well.
While hilarious, the story is actually very simple and sometimes it feels like the movie is too long for such a story. And the jokes are not spaced out enough to catch the slack in screenplay. But all the same, it is impossible to control the laughter that erupts when, for example, you see Murugan's love song picturisation. But be ready to be surprised with the violence as well the violence is NOT picturised like a Tom and Jerry cartoon All in all, a lot of very clever jokes interspersed with some not so interesting parts. Even though its overall rating is average, I would recommend a watch because you are going to recall the jokes for days after the movie and chuckle thinking about it.
