Jyothika who is the fiance of Madhavan, son of Urvasi, decides to take her future mother-in-law and her friends (Bhanupriya and Saranya Ponvannan) on a three day field trip.
The events that transpire through the journey and how the lives of the women have changed over the years and how they are treated by their family members form the rest of the story.
The movie’s hero is the story and is strongly carried by Bhanu Priya, Saranya Ponvannan and Oorvasi. Jyothika more or less acts as a catalyst in the movie who takes the plot forward. But she has done justice to the role.
Director Bramma has extracted the best from all the characters. The female leads in the movie have atleast one scene to showcase their talent and make a mark with the audience.
The director has succeeded in conveying the message he wanted to do. A few strong dialogues explain the suffering of the women after marriage and how their freedom is restricted.
On the flip side, the men in the movie have very little do. However, considering that it is a women centric movie this can be ignored.
Ghibran’s music has added value to the scenes and songs. On the whole, Magalir Mattum is a movie with a message that does not bore the audience.
Rating: 3/5 – Joyful journey
