Arguably, actors Arvind Swami, Prashanth and Madhavan are the last of the ‘chocolate boy’ clan we have today. We’ve had films that glorified, worshipped its ‘stars’ on screen. Bogan, probably, is the first Tamil film that devotes itself to, or at least tries to boast about the aforementioned minority, which is spearheaded by Arvind.
Fifteen minutes into Bogan, we see Arvind’s swagger; he’s with numerous scantily-clad women in the opening shot. He plays Adithya. Bogan offers the adequate hero introduction song to a wannabe ‘star’ Jayam Ravi, who plays Vikram, an assistant commissioner of police. Of all, the most intriguing one is the entry of Mahalakshmi (Hansika), who is seen queueing up at a TASMAC shop. If you think her name is a pun, then the joke is on you because Kalyani would have been more suitable.
Given the commercial liabilities, Bogan takes a reasonable time to establish its core: a cat-and-mouse game between the hero and the villain. Despite having many films in this genre, how good can Bogan be? That’s when Lakshman brings in a subplot about the concept of transporting one’s soul to another’s body. To cement the logical loopholes, we have Hansika, Nasser and Naren with their own back-stories.
Though the film’s premise takes inventive bits from the Hollywood film Face Off, or closer home, legendary filmmaker Singeetham Srinivasa Rao’s Chinna Vathiyar (1995), Bogan is saved by Ravi and Arvind. Actually, the latter!
As far as the plot is concerned, Vikram is on the hunt to pin down Adithya, a petty criminal-turned-billionaire. What happens when Vikram and Adithya’s souls are juxtaposed on to one another? Bogan delivers a fair bit of entertainment in this two-and-a-half-hour potboiler. With that, Bogan moves at a snail’s pace in the first hour. While it goes about offering juvenile and cringe-worthy scenes with Ravi and Hansika, the audience can be heard mumbling, “Where’s Arvind Swami?” Also, it’s taxing to invest time to watch these two ‘romance’ on screen. With some decent moments, Bogan pushes its story forward with a terrific interval block. However, it carries a substantial amount of baggage from Ravi-Arvind’s Thani Oruvan. If you’ve watched Thani Oruvan, then it’s just deja vu.
Remember Siddharth Abhimanyu? The suave antagonist who cited flowery words like ‘incorrigible’ in Thani Oruvan? What if Siddharth had a twin brother Adithya, who’s of less intellect and twice as cunning as the former?
Unlike Thani Oruvan, Arvind’s character does more to the B and C centres, which is why his sly character and eccentric body language are more enjoyable. Especially the scene where Adithya gets riled by Vikram, or the one where he says, “Edhuku da feel pandra? Avala pooda mudiyala na illa thayeer saadham ooti vitaa na?”
After his stellar performance as an effeminate Bhagavan in Aadhi Bhagavan, Jayam Ravi’s emulation of Arvind Swami is too good to watch. Having said that, Ravi’s performance seems to be subdued at par with Arvind’s. Sadly, the film has more to do with the latter than Ravi. Except for the film’s background score, music by D Imman is pathetic. Come on, you can’t always get away with a Dandanakka or Damaalu Dumeelu!
Pardoning a few cliched scenes and the abrupt climax, Bogan may not be a great film, but a well-executed thriller that does manage to treat you with a tight screenplay.
