The director was inspired by the French-Liberian film _Johnny Mad Dog (2008)_, which starred a real life group of LURD child soldiers and subsequently chose them as well as the cinematographer of that film, Marc Koninckx, to be a part of Maryan. See more »
One of the best Tamil "genuine entertaining" films till date where the famous music video and ad film director Bharat Bala paints a beautiful scenario of a man who fights against all odds and gets himself saved from the shackles of initially the local villain in Tamil Nadu and then the local militia in Sudan. The film is a well crafted and brilliant narration laden film, which scores full points in the screenplay (Bharat and Sriram Rajan), the characters whose presence make the frames complete with their excellent performances. A word about A.R. Rahman's music score: REFRESHING. He hits with a large bang in giving the film a great music score which graces the film, continuing his excellence this year from Kadal and Raanjhanaa. A word about the cinematography: BRILLIANT. Marc Konnikx, AFC, turns every frame of the film into an outstanding piece of art, which makes your jaw drop. The editing by Vivek Harshan is slick and brilliant and the the Sound Design and DI work is again brilliant. Performances by Salim Kumar, Jagan, Uma Riyaz Khan and Dagbeth Tweh are brilliant. Parvathy Menon is beautiful and adorable in the film in her performances and beauty as well. Dhanush is EXCELLENT, who returns with his charms that he displayed in films like "Aadukulam", "Mayakkam Enna" and the recent cult "Raanjhanaa". The great and smooth narration flow makes "Maryan" a great weekend fare. A must watch even more a Non Tamil as the film has been released with English subtitles. My rating would be 4. 5/ 5.
