Manmadha Leelai Movie Review

The plot of Manmadha Leelai is intercut with incidents that take place in two different time periods. In 2010, Sathya (Ashok Selvan), a college student, invites himself to the home of Poorni (Samyuktha Hegde, who plays a difficult part admirably), a girl he’s been talking to online. He schemes to get laid while her ‘father’ (Jayaprakash) is out of town. Meanwhile, in 2020, the same Sathya (Riya Suman, effective as a femme fatale) invites Leela (Riya Suman, effective as a femme fatale), an IT worker who has mistakenly wound up at his door, into his home. His wife Anu (Smruthi Venkat, reprising her role as Miss Goody Two Shoes) has gone to see her parents with their little daughter, and Sathya sees this as an ideal opportunity for a one-night fling.

Venkat Prabhu tells us how his protagonist’s two nights unfold, cutting from one to the other alternately. The fluid editing (by Venkat Raajen), guided by the confident writing, ensures that there are no jerks in this non-linear narration, with scenes moving smoothly from one timeline to the next. Venkat Prabhu writes these sequences so that they mirror one another. Both of these occurrences take place on a rainy night and include drinking and changing clothing. The gaze is obviously male, as it is in adult comedies. Sathya is portrayed as the predator, making deft efforts to entrap the women and obtain what he desires – sex. Tamilazhagan’s camera moves all over the two women’s bodies, recording every curve and flash of skin. And the tone of Premgi Amaren’s slightly strident background score, with nadaswaram and mridangam, is jubilant in these moments, echoing Sathya’s delight. Having saying that, the first half is essentially a pleasant romp.
The film reaches its intermission point when a family member who is absent arrives unexpectedly in both timeframes, leaving us on the edge of our seats, wondering if Sathya will be apprehended. Venkat Prabhu maintains the same lighthearted tone throughout, creating uncomfortable moments in which his protagonist is on the verge of being revealed. And we begin to wonder how the director would connect these recordings, given the many different paths he can follow. In one of these scenarios, he even throws us a mouth-watering twist midway that turns the tables on his protagonist, puncturing his ego.

Unfortunately, the director, who pulled off an even more difficult story with Maanaadu, takes the easy route here. What started out as a suspenseful adult comedy becomes an unoriginal crime film with a convenient finale and a predictable twist. Even in terms of tone, the film becomes flamboyant and larger-than-life. And it is up to Ashok Selvan — who is fantastic as a smooth-talking womaniser who is single-mindedly going towards his goal, making his difficulties feel humorous to us — to carry this transition. The actor tries, but with the writing failing him, he just about manages to save this quickie from ending on an unpleasant note.
