Sasikumar Sathyaraj MGR Magan

Joining the bandwagon of Diwali releases is MGR Magan, which will stream on Disney+ Hotstar. The makers released the trailer of the film, which appears to be a breezy family dramedy about a father-son relationship, played by Sathyaraj and Sasikumar respectively. Sathyaraj’s character is a doctor practicing traditional medicine. When a patient visits his house which doubles up as his clinic, Sasikumar warns them by saying “Seriously, you believe in his treatment? He is known for spoiling things”. 

The film is set in a vibrant Tamil Nadu village. Playing the role of Sathyaraj’s wife and Sasikumar’s mother is Saranya Ponvannan. Also in the film is Samuthirakani, who plays Sasikumar’s maternal uncle. Samuthirakani and Sasikumar were last seen together in Udanpirappe, where they acted as brothers-in-law.

The trailer hints at the central conflict being around a never-ending legal battle between the family and the villain, played by Pazha Karuppaiah, who is determined to pull it until the end of his time. 


The film also stars Mirnalini Ravi, Nandhitha Swetha, Singampuli, Naan Kadavul Rajendran, Ramachandran in key roles. MGR Magan is written and directed by Ponram, who last made Seemaraja with Sivakarthikeyan. It is shot by Vinoth Rathinasamy and edited by Vivek Harshan. The trailer also gives a glimpse of the peppy music, composed by Anthony Daasan popularly known for his Tamil folk music. 

It is produced by Screen Scene Media Entertainment and was slated for a release earlier this year. However, it was postponed owing to the pandemic and now gets a festive release on Disney+ Hotstar on November 4.
