Mariyaan comes as a serious drama thriller with a strong and soulful love story on the backdrop. The story claims that it is loosely based on the true story about three immigrant oil workers who were kidnapped by the terrorists in Sudan back in 2008. Let's first start with the back bone of the movie that is the plot it is about two things in life 1.Love and 2.Survival of the fittest. As the two contrasting things the films also opens like two parts one love and coastal life near Kanyakumari and the other is survival life in Sudan. These tracks travel side by side in the film and finally we see the actual soulful merge. The cinematography by the renowned Belgian Marc Koninckx brings life on the two contrasting terrains of the story 1.Coastal region of southern Tamil Nadu 2.Desserts of Sudan,Africa. His cinematography is simply brilliant which gives life to the story. The lead actors of the movie rather the pillars of the story were Parvathy and Dhanush. They both have done a scintillating performance. They were brilliant and competing each other. Particularly the lady lead Parvathy Menon of the movie "Poo" fame didn't allow the lead male character Mariyaan to overshadow her skills at any place making us say superb acting. Dhanush is becoming an iconic and most important actor in Indian film industry. He is in the right track and has used this opportunity to grab the next national Award. Other actors Jagan and Appukutty as friends did their parts well. The little odd on characterization was the heroine's father and the hero's mother it was too artificial to look young people with older getup instead they could have given it to some good old character artists in the industry. Director Bharath Bala is joining hands with ARR after vande matram their duo has worked well and has created the necessary magic through music on screen. As per the songs I felt it good along with the movie rather as an individual album. Worth mention would be the hallucination scene which brought Cheetah on screen and the underwater sequences were marvelous. The film's length could have been little less but that does not stop me saying this is a good masterpiece in Tamil cinema. Verdict: A worth watch movie for real story and acting based movie lovers. Otherwise commercial movie lovers stay away from this flick!! -Reviewed by Sivakumar Balachandran (email@example.com)
People usually sit back and relax or even take a break during the songs in a film, but it wasn't the same with Maryan. Audiences didn't move from their seats because even the songs had a story to tell. Maryan, inspired by true events, is the story of an Indian held captive in Sudan. It featured Dhanush and Parvathy Menon in the lead roles. Dhanush was definitely an attraction. But the credit can't be handed over to him completely because Parvathy was equally powerful in her role and even the story managed to impress. Dhanush and Parvathy breathe life into the story. The cinematography done in this movie is excellent. It's a visual treat for the audience. Dhanush + Bala = MAGIC
"Maryan" a typical movie came out this year with a very strong performance by Dhanush and Parvathy as the lead and also with A.R.Rahman's remarkable music. Director Bharatbala who did "Jana Gana Mana" album with A.R.Rahman (an Oscar award winner) before given his first directional venture "Maryan" with some soulful love, emotions, pain and tragedy. A real incident should be equally mixed with strong love and all commercial elements through "Maryan". But it is presented in a slow pace that creates the question "how this movie do well at box office collection?" "Maryan" plot remembers Manirathnam's "Roja" that's a major drawback of story narration by the director. Also the slow pace of the screenplay remembers the style of Manirathnam makings. The plot is very simple and the scenes should be easily identified by the audience but through strong performance by the lead pair the movie gets more interesting towards the end. First half is packed with full of love and emotions by the lead pair. Second half is fully packed with tragedy and survival. Dhanush (an award winning actor) has given a solid performance through the character Maryan and gives life to the movie. Definitely this year he should be the one who will give a strong competition to all other actors, those who are hungry to get the National award. As a fisherman and lover in the first half he shows all his skill of acting and as a hostage in the second half he is simply outstanding and brilliant. He goes to his next level of acting abilities through the second half. Especially in sequences like telephone speaking, just before Kadal Rasa song and at the climax portion. He should be appreciated for choosing movies like this after got an award. None of the actor can do this Maryan character except him. Hat's off to him. Parvathy(who did "Poo" before)did an equally excellent role as Panimalar. She looks very beautiful in the movie and acted very excellent also gives a tough acting competition to Dhanush. One of the rare actresses who plays equal role to hero after a long time in Tamil cinema industry. Other supporting characters should equally given their best acting. Especially Uma Riaz, Appukutty and Jagan did their job good. The great plus of the movie is A.R.Rahman's music. Songs are already in chart-busters. All songs are done with beautiful emotions. "Enga Pona Rasa", "Netru Aval Irundaal", "Innum Konjam Neram" are the sweetest melodies "Kadal Rasa", "Nenje Ezhu" are packed with soul and emotions. "Sonapariya" gives the joyful pleasure. BG score also given more support to the movie. Especially in second half A.R did an excellent BG work. Cinematography by Marc Koninckx is very valuable and shows technically brilliant in many sequences. Scenes like Dhanush waiting inside the sea and desert regions are brilliantly photographed by him. Editing by Vivek Harshan gives equal support for the movie. Overall "Maryan" is a typical Tamil cinema and it should be appreciated for brilliant performance by Dhanush and Parvathy as the lead and for A.R.Rahman's best music. Go and watch it for Dhanush and A.R.Rahman.

Hats off to the entire crew My rating-10/10 Go and experience it
Reviews and criticism from people of poor ability and patience to watch some beauty in the screen always kept the real value of movies from south India away from reality making. Every Year there is a surprise movie in Tamil Film Industry listing that stands top of the table ,for this year undoubtedly its Maryan on top 3. Director Bharath Bala for his first movie but with years of experience in the industry has slowly crafted his vision on a simple script to a poetic screenplay with the support of the best cast. An emotional tale of love ,Pain, struggle so well delivered by the artist the best in south Dhanush,Parvathy in specific. Cinematography Marc Koninckx is so brilliant and framed the best colors in both the countries and that never makes you feel the movie slow in second half supported by Vivek Harshan's cuts, just watch and admire. AR Rahman "FASCINATING". Keep the Spirits of Tamil movies UP
