The story of the Mersal moves through the two main characters, Maaran (Vijay), a sincere doctor who fights against corruption and Vettri (Vijay), a magician who is out for a revenge. Both of them are estranged brothers and once they come together, they get to know about their common enemy ,Daniel (SJ Surya), who had killed their father (Thalapathy played by Vijay) and mother (Nithya Menen).
Mersal deals with this revenge tale and has taken up some important social issues, as well. The movie is packed with certain amount of surprise packages along with its own share of entertaining elements. Atlee, the director has laced the movie with entertainment and message.
The movie might resemble yesteryear classics such as Rajini’s Moondru Mugam and Kamal’s Apoorva Sahodaragal. Atlee, however, has presented old wine in a new bottle with impressive packing and presentation.
