Bogan is about a police officer vikram played by Jayam ravi on his way to find a culprit on a bank theft case, happens to chase Adhithya, played by Arvind swami. Soon after vikram arrests Adhithya by a brilliant plan, the film takes its next level, with a terrific intervel block. Film is racy post interval and ends up as an above average thriller with fantastic performnace from Arvind swami and Jayam Ravi. Film has an adapted theme from some hollywood films, still makes a mark with racy script but has flaws with forceful afdition of songs and commercial must haves of tamil cinema.

A great show by Aravind swamy and Jeyam Ravi. A competitor for Thani Oruvan :P
2 February 2017 | by aniseprakashSee all my reviews

Lakshman who has raised to fame by his debut directorial Romeo Juliet has produced another intelligent drama. This time he has hooked up the Thani Oruvan duo and the duo has rocked once again.

The plot of Bogan is intelligent and well-crafted one. The importance given to the antagonist was excellent. Aravind Swamy who has threatened Kollywood as Sidharth Abimanyu (Thani Oruvan) has delivered another energetic performance. As Aditya he has hypnotized everyone on screen and off screen. He is natural as a baddie (No offense).

Jayam Ravi as Vikram is as impressive as Aravind Samy. The police officer in Ravi is always a treat to watch and he doesn't disappoint. Be it a straight forward police officer or the baddie (Baddie? Have to watch the film :P) Ravi scores distinction.

Hansika Motwani has little to offer in terms of screen presence but she manages to plant herself in the audience's mind. All the other characters have done their part well. But it is all the way Jayam Ravi and Aravind Swamy's show.

Bogan Lakshman has done a great screenplay. The first half was entertaining and tops in the interval block. The second half is on and on a cat and mouse game between the positive and negative. The thrill in the second half never leaves till the climax.

The biggest positive of the movie is the way the negative role was portrayed. There are scenes were the baddie over shadows the hero which brings whistle in the theaters (Especially for Aravind Swamy). The errors that Jeyam Ravi makes as a cop was a reality touch.

Soundarajan's hard work behind the camera is evident throughout the movie. D.Imman's background was brilliant and boosts the screenplay, but he fails to score in songs (Except Damaal Dumeel). Every department has given it's best to make the movie a hit.

The length of the movie might play boring game on few. Otherwise it's a great show by Ravi and Aravind.
