Quick Gun Murugun

Quick Gun Murugun

 Rajendra Prasad as Quick Gun Murugan.The earth is my bed, the sky is my ceiling and the whole creation is my native place, I'm Murugun, Quick Gun Murugun, says the desi vegetarian cowboy Rajendra Prasad. The much-talked about film and the much-awaited superhero Murugun has finally hit the screens.

The story starts in a south Indian village with Murugun dying and ends in Mumbai via the ministry of death (swarglok). In this film, the hero  and the villain Rice Plate Reddy (Naseer) are at loggerheads.

The fight is between vegetarianism and non-vegetarianism. As Murugan wanted to take revenge on Rice Plate Reddy, who had killed him, he requests Chitragupta (Vinay Pathak) to send him back to the earth. This time he lands in Mumbai.

Here begins the search for Reddy, who is planning to launch a non-vegetarian machine-made dosa for which he kidnaps women who have the perfect recipe for making delicious dosas.

Murugun, who keeps talking to his Locket Lover (Anu Menon- Channel V fame Lola Kutty), faces the “test of his life”  when Mango Dolly (Rambha), starts liking him.

The first half of the film is too violent (for no reason), but it’s funny. Characters like Gun Powder and Rowdy MBA (Raju Sundaram) are fabulously funny.

Every character has a unique musical track. Director Shashanka Ghosh has tried to give his best in this film, but lack of a good story line spoils the delicious fare. Though QGM is not a laughter-riot, it makes people laugh on some occasions. Beyond a point, the jokes seem laboured. To make people laugh is the most difficult task, and Murugun has done it quite well, but without a hint of smile on his face.
