“Saguni” to a greater extent qualifies to be a mass masala entertainer and the credit goes to the two leading men in the film Karthi and Santhanam. If not for the comic timing of Santhanam, this “Saguni” would have been a dead rubber. Santhanam in tandem with Karthi has made sure that the viewers are kept in good spirits throughout in spite of a slow-paced screenplay at their disposal.

The movie begins on a serious note which shifts gears as soon as Kamal (Karthi) makes an entry and soon Rajini (Santhanam) joins the bandwagon. The Political Satire parts have been well handled by the director Shankar Dayal in terms of the punch one-liner dialogues which keeps the viewers in splits.

Kamal wanting to save his ancestral property turns leaf into a political king maker thereby fighting against his foe in a political way.Bhupati (Prakash Raj) plays the main political villain with some twists and turns but somehow one gets a feel that Prakash Raj has lost the charm he once had possessed.

The story moves on a predictable path once the storyline is known. Post this the scenes are predictable and the predictability extends till the end. In the middle the collection of scenes that get executed one after another is where the film tends to fall a bit. With a much crisper screenplay, Saguni would have been a express paced film but it turns out to be a mix of slow and medium paced one.

The first half of the film which sets a base for the racy second half looks half-baked. The scenes and pace of the film in the second half saves the day for this “Saguni”.

In terms of acting, Santhanam repeats his “ Ok Ok” magic once again. Karthi seems to be making rapid progress in his career by experimenting with different genre of films and his performance is above average. The leading lady Prahanitha is a huge disappointment as her screen time is limited mostly to the duet songs and for major portion of the film she looks very stiff.

Prakash Raj as said earlier lacks the dreaded villain stature and he hasn’t made use of the opportunities given to him. Kota Sreenivasa Rao, Radhika, Roja, Anushka, Andrea come in minor roles. Yesteryear dream girl Kiran Rathod from being a leading lady to an item girl has stepped into a new avatar of a character artist in this film without any success.

Music by G V Prakash Kumar is a huge disappointment considering the fact that he can be deadly brilliant when he is at his best. Shankar Dayal though has missed a trick or two when it comes to the screenplay seems to have luckily scraped through.

There are certain films which wouldn’t qualify to be a great film but would commercially be a hit. Saguni might get slotted in this category. The film has a running time of 150 minutes and as a viewer if one looks at the film sans any logic it wouldn’t disappoint. For others, the film wouldn’t excite much.

“Saguni”, the king maker might end up doing good business at the box-office.
