Mahaan Movie Review

This has to be the most impassioned of all the sideways tributes to Mahatma Gandhi.

In Karthik Subbaraj’s Tamil film Mahaan, a man called after the emblem of nonviolence and teetotalism tries to live up to his principles. Gandhi Mahaan (Vikram) paddles furiously to the other side, where he finds the pleasures of illegal behavior, vast money, and unending rivulets of whiskey.

Gandhi had the misfortune of being born into a Gandhian family. Nachi (Simran), his wife, is also a self-abnegationist. So, when Gandhi shows up one day after breaking the no-liquor rule, Nachi, their son Dadabai Naoroji (Dada for short), and the rest of the family leave in disgust.

Gandhi doesn’t have much time to lament their departure. This business professor has a major meltdown. Gandhi becomes the criminal version of Vijay Mallya after joining up with Sathyavan (Bobby Simha) and Satyavan’s son Rocky (Sananth).

The trio, with the assistance of politician Gnanam (Muthu Kumar), rob the system and milk the proceeds. Dada (Dhruv Vikram), an arrogant police officer who has sworn to raze Gandhi’s empire to the ground, provides retaliation.

Mahaan’s Dhruv Vikram (2022). Seven Screen Studio provided the footage.
It’s a conventional narrative told across 142 minutes of bottom-warming flashbacks and boisterous tunes (by Santhosh Narayanan). Subbaraj brings his typical caustic humour, visual flair for creating scenes, and absorption in men’s worlds to the film. Nachi, the only prominent female character, is barely visible and quickly forgotten.

Mahaan is now available on Amazon Prime Video with English subtitles. The film would lead us to believe that there is more to the mission to rid Tamil Nadu of alcohol. Rather than pulling Mahatma Gandhi down a notch (he’s an easy target these days), Mahaan appears to be firing over the apostle of peace’s shoulder at the false gods that hide in our midst.

Dada is a religious zealot who was reared in a religious cult after being estranged from his father. Dada is a moral policeman as well as an actual cop, and he represents everything Gandhi – and the film – despises: an impossible standard of rectitude, a killjoy attitude toward pleasure, and contempt for people who live outside the bounds of society’s prescribed rules.

Gandhi compares his anarchic amorality to Dada’s trigger-happy righteousness, telling the young man, “I may not be a good man, but you are no better than me.”

Is there a metaphor about the hypocritical times we live in somewhere in this seemingly long film? Maybe it’s the alcohol talking.

In any case, the gangsters appear to be having the most fun in the film. Their camaraderie, loyalty, and personal moral code remind me of a line from Bob Dylan’s song Absolutely Sweet Marie, not one of Mahatma Gandhi’s aphorisms: “But to live outside the law, you must be honest.”

Vikram gives a Patiala-style performance, brimming with pathos, bathos, and self-deprecation. Dhruv Vikram (the actor’s real-life son) is no match for the charismatic pater familias. Bobby Simha, the lead in Subbaraj’s Jigarthanda (2014), is also on fire. Gandhi and Sathayavan’s friendship, as well as Subbaraj’s sly glee, just about save Mahaan from unforgivable bloat.
