Who is Bogan? That is the question that drives this movie about things not being as they seem.

Bogan is about a police officer vikram played by Jayam ravi on his way to find a culprit on a bank theft case, happens to chase Adhithya, played by Arvind swami. Soon after vikram arrests Adhithya by a brilliant plan, the film takes its next level, with a terrific intervel block. Film is racy post interval and ends up as an above average thriller with fantastic performnace from Arvind swami and Jayam Ravi. Film has an adapted theme from some hollywood films, still makes a mark with racy script but has flaws with forceful afdition of songs and commercial must haves of tamil cinema.

Bogan makes a one time watch only because of Aravind Swamy and Jeyam Ravi.
28 February 2017 | by shobanchittuproluSee all my reviews

Bogan (2017): After having a major breakthrough success with Thani Oruvan, Aravind Swamy's stardom rose to heights and became most anticipated antagonist of Kollywood. Bogan has the same combo of Jeyam Ravi and Aravind Swamy as hero and villain and trailer looked promising.So how is it?

Plot: The plot revolves around Aditya (Arvind Swami), who has stumbled onto the secret of body swapping (a power that once belonged to the saint, Bogar). He uses it to get rich quick. His modus operandi involves swapping his body for a patsy and robbing a jewellery shop or a bank, all the while ensuring that the video evidence is against his victim. But Vikram (Jayam Ravi), an assistant commissioner, is on to him after Aditya uses his trick on the cop's father (Aadukalam Naren). Vikram manages to nab Aditya, but to get his revenge, the latter switches his body with former's. And now, Vikram has to save himself and stop Aditya before he can wreck more damage.

Plus Points:

1)Aravind Swamy and Jeyam Ravi: Just Like Thani Oruvan, Bogan is a celebration of the antagonist, and once again, Arvind Swami rocks in the role of a charismatic villain.Unlike Thani Oruvan, Arvind's character does more to the B and C centers, which is why his sly character and eccentric body language are more enjoyable.Jeyam Ravi scores once again with his performance as cop.Though he was overshadowed by Swamy,he made his presence felt.

2)Pre-Interval: The scene where Ravi befriends Swamy and smokes weed with him in his car is awesome.Their cray antics in that scene and those dance moves are hilarious.This scene is the highlight of the movie.Aravind Swamy and Jeyam Ravi sparked the screen.

Minus Points:

1)Predictable Screenplay: Bogan's plot is fantasized Indian version of Face/off.If handled well this movie could have been more better but Lakshman wrote a predictable screenplay with no surprises.Except the Pre-interval scene,most of the scenes looks tedious.Romantic track between Jeyam Ravi and Hansika is boring and takes most of time in 1st half.

2)Music: D.Imman gave some decent BGM but his songs are pathetic.

So,Bogan makes a one time watch only because of Aravind Swamy and Jeyam Ravi.

My rating 6.25/10
