‘Bogan’ a watchable thriller with Arvind Swamy suavely stealing the show

Bogan, Arvind Swamy

‘Bogan’ literally means ‘A Man Who Enjoys Worldly Pleasures’. Jayam Ravi plays an honest cop, Arvind Swami is an incredibly intelligent con man, and Hansika is the typical Tamil film heroine who comes for a couple of love scenes and songs, just to add glamour to the film. Director Lakshman, who had earlier made Romeo Juliet, which was a box office disaster, redeems himself with this movie.

In Thani Oruvan, Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swami indulged in a cat-and-mouse game that was thrilling to watch. Lakshman tries to capture the same sort of excitement with this movie. The movie is inspired from Hollywood flick Face/Off, which has the theme of a cop and criminal switching places. 

The film starts as a love drama kind of movie. But as soon as Arvind Swami comes into the scene the whole story changes. Adithya (Arvind Swami) gets hold of thousands of year old technique by which he is able to swap his soul with another body. He robs jewelry shop bank and some more places to support his extravagant lifestyle. Once he chooses a cops father to carry out his robbing activity. So enters Vikram (Jayam Ravi) to solve the case and prove his father’s innocence.

Both the lead actors perform well, but it can be unanimously agreed that Arvind Swami steals the show. His style and charisma are unmatchable. The way he portrays the antagonist, changes the whole attitude of the viewer reaction to a baddie. Arvind swaps his body with the cop to escape. Though Jayam Ravi also gets chance to play the villain he is not able to do it with the same aplomb and confidence. Hansika with a name like Mahalakshmi plays the naïve and gullible girl who immediately falls for the hero.  All performances are good and a watchable treat for viewers.
