The Quick Gun Murugun Movie Review

The Good, The Bad, And The Pretty
Rating: 2.5/5

By N K Deoshi

Hats off to this gaudily dressed Tamil cowboy, an unlikely superhero with a heart of gold and a tongue that shoots off punchy one-liners sleeker than the ricocheting bullets from his gun.

Mind it! Quick Gun Murugun, the spoofy western from the south is loaded with wackiest fun and action you could imagine. The movie picks up every masala from the popular films made in the last few decades, and seasons it with a generous smattering of slapstick comedy conceived by writer Rajesh Devraj and director Shashanka Ghosh, the duo who originally created the Quickgun character for a music channel some 15 years ago.

The appreciable thing about ‘Quick Gun Murugun’ is that even though it spoofs the popular stereotypes from Hindi and Tamil films, it remains very original and innovative in its presentation. In the film, you’ll come across some of the wackiest names and characters. There’s a McDosa Corporation, there’s an Institute for Coconut Climbing, and of course, the Swarglok where you see a dapperly dressed Chitragupta (Vinay Pathak) keeping the death count.

Quickgun Murugan (Dr. Rajendra Prasad) is a South Indian cowboy with the most flamboyant style and the most garish outfits ever seen on any hero. He’s the dosa-loving superhero who embraces vegetarianism and takes on his arch rival Rice Plate Reddy (Nasser), an unscrupulous ‘Rascala’ who wants to make non-veg dosas in the cheapest way possible.

In his battle against the evil Reddy, the good Murugun is helped by the pretty and voluptuous Mango Dolly (Rambha) who loves and yearns for Murugun even though the cowboy’s heart is torn between Dolly and his ex flame Locket Lover (Anu Menon).

The movie is packed with crunchy dialogues, funny situations and over-the-top action that is more hilarious than thrilling. But after a while the gags seem to lose their potency - particularly in the second half when the battle between Murugun and Reddy is stretched beyond the necessary.

The heart and soul of the film is doubtlessly Dr. Rajendra Prasad whose controlled hamming and histrionics make the character Quick Gun so likeable. Nasser makes a credible foe of the gun-toting cowboy while Rambha (in a blonde wig and low-neck dresses) is a treat to the eyes.

In a nutshell, ‘Quick Gun Murugun’ is good fun. Give it a shot.

Rating: **1/2
