Maa Vaadu is dubbed from the Tamil film Silambattam and has a stale story with hackneyed plot.
This is a story vengeance and the protagonist is seen in two roles separated by two births and twenty years. The present Simbu is docile and lives with his grand-father. He also has a girl-friend (Sana Khan).
A flashback shows two village groups and the heads of these groups ( Prabhu and Ponvannan) are at a war of attrition. The brother (Simbu again) of the group head played by Prabhu is a protester along with his wife (Sneha).
The only twist in the story is the connection between the two roles played by Simbu. The rest is gang-war, gore, murder and mayhem.
Simbu does less of acting and more of aping a super-star. Sana Khan does nothing except dropping her
clothes at the flick of a finger. Sneha and Prabhu just go through their motions. All others are just adequate.
With a stale story that follows the oft-beaten track, narrated in an insipid manner does not stir any interest in the viewer. The film is obviously made for the front benchers and the plethora of double meaning dialogues is nauseating.
The less said about the other technical aspects, the better.
Maa Vaadu is such a film that makes you wonder what exactly is the difference between cow-dung and bull-shit..not much in any case.
This film is avoidable at any cost.
