Flamboyant Vijay in a dual role takes the viewers on a rollercoaster ride of entertainment for a two and half hours in Swarga Chitra’s Azhagiya Tamil Magan.

Athletic Guru (Vijay likes the kind hearted Abhinaya (Shreya) daughter of a business tycoon Anand Cheyyar (Ashish Vidyarthi). She reciprocates his love when she comes to know that he lost the running race to her friend’s brother Shakthi (Sreeman) so that Shakthi could get a job under the sports quota. Anand Cheyyar agrees for their marriage and after a dramatic entry, the boy’s father (Thanikella Bharani) too accepts his son’s choice. Abhi goes to Guru’s village along with him and convinces his mother (Geetha) who till then was apprehensive about a city bahu. In the meantime, Guru realises that he has extra sensory perception (ESP) as he foresees the death of the little girl who lives in the same bungalow as he is. He couldn’t save her but he could save his father and the villagers averting a train accident. Much to the chagrin of Abhi and her father, Guru stays away from his engagement ceremony. The reason his ESP told that he is going to knife Abhi in a ruined fort. In order to avoid the incident he leaves Chennai and heads for Mumbai. To his surprise he finds his look-alike Prasad (Vijay) there. Before he could reach him, he is hit by a moving lorry and is hospitalised. Prasad works for a Bank and illegally finances the money to a Seth (Sayaji Shinde) in Chennai. To recover the money he comes to Chennai. Abhi spots him outside the Seth’s office complex and takes him home thinking that he is Guru. A Casanova of sorts Prasad assumes the role of Guru and plans to usurp the girl and her property. Guru returns to Chennai to save Abhi. And then follows the one-up-man-ship drama between Guru and Prasad leading to an interesting climax.

The story seems to have drawn its inspiration from an old MGR hit, Ninaippadhai Mudippavan and ace filmmaker Bharathan makes the proceedings interesting with his crisp and witty dialogue. Vijay played the hero as well as the anti-hero to the hilt offering total entertainment. Shreya makes good contribution while Namita donned a special appearance. Super Subbarayan’s action blocks allure especially when the two Vijay’s fight with each other. A. R. Rahman’s music is a major asset for the movie.
