Its hard to describe a movie like Quick Gun Murugun which stars Rajendra Prasad portraying the title role with Nasser as Rice Plate Reddy, the villian. The movie is a fine combination of witty dialogues, over-the-top acting and action. What is an absolute no-no for most films today, is exactly what works for Quick Gun.
The film is short, sweet and has enough laughs in store to warrant a visit to your nearest movieplex. Director Shashanka Ghosh takes on a difficult script and his uniquely different way of execution is what makes Quick Gun Murugun a compelling watch.
The use of Tamil with subtitles, is annoying at times and so are the costumes, which are way too bright. But the positives by far outweigh the negatives.
Rajendra Prasad's performance is what takes Quick gun to a different level altogether. He is simply fantastic, its a watch-it-to-believe it performance. Nasser is equally good as the villian. Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey have smallish roles, so does Sandhya Mridul. Rest of the actors are perfectly cast.
To sum up, Quick Gun Murugun is a tasty crisp dosa that should be enjoyed with a bit of popcorn and a lot of pepsi, but only in theatres. Go for it.

Other Critic Reviews
"Quick Gun Murugun" is the kind of film you would possibly scoff at while watching alone. Reason - it is purposefully silly and self deprecating many times over. However, bring on a bunch of friends and the 'desi hero' Quick Gun Murugun turns out to be a wacky fun company.
