    Loosely made remake which could have been better!!

    Yet an another remake of a good film (Jolly LLB) which falls into
    Kollywood’s money making hands.At the end of the day a film is made
    only to make profits and not to create awareness (Unlike Visaranai).

    Manithan directed by I. Ahmed who made the promising Endrendrum
    Punnagai seems to get everything right in making this film suit our
    Tamil audience but fails a bit with 2 hours 30 minutes screenplay.

    Must mention is Udhay’s performance mainly in the climax and his face
    suits the dumb not speakable-non heroic character. Vivek may not be at
    his best but still gives us something to laugh here and there.

    Radharavi and Prakash Raj as Adisheshan’s performance is one of the
    highlights of the film. Radharavi as Judge looks uber cool and apt for
    the role. Kudos to the cast crew.

    Like yet an another Tamil film Hansika’s role is as useless as studying
    engineering in this current generation and like a mediocre student
    trying to pass by writing stories, Hansika survives with some cute
    expressions. Hansika’s mouth synchronization’s continues to be pathetic
    (We have talked about this enough).

    A Well Made Remake

    Manithan (2016) is the remake of a well received bollywood movie Jolly
    LLB. Director Ahmed has done his best to remake a well written
    courtroom drama for Tamil audience.

    The movie starts with Uday (hero of the movie) , a lawyer in the
    sessions court at Pollachi. He struggles to argue in the courtroom and
    win a case. He is getting mocked by everyone for being a failure in his
    career. He wants to prove himself to his girlfriend Hansika and decides
    to practice law in the high court in Chennai. He joins his uncle Vivek
    who is also a lawyer in the high court. What Uday did to prove himself
    to the world is the rest of the story.

    Notable performances from Prakash Raj, Radha Ravi elevates the tension
    of the courtroom scenes. Hansika and Ishwarya have done their roles as
    expected. Uday has done his best till date especially in the Climax
    scene. Vivek makes a good comeback and brings in laughs at the right

    As a whole very well executed courtroom drama with excellent
    performances all around. Go and watch it in theaters.

    An engrossing court room drama!! A much needed tamil film at this time!

    Manithan is a movie where the script is the hero and the actors play
    their part eloquently in supporting the script…. The movie has a well
    paced script that neatly incorporates all the necessary elements. The
    director has sensibly added elements there were missing in the Hindi
    version and makes this a well etched entertainer… Udhaynidhi stalin
    proves he’s here to stay, his acting gets noticed even amongst
    stalwarts like Prakash raj & Radharavi. The movie is sprinkled with
    funny moments and satires and kept me entertained throughout. It rides
    strong on emotions and creates a connect with all the characters no
    matter big or small. That’s probably where the strength of the film
    lies in. One might find the pace of the first of a little slow but the
    second half makes up for it and also a special mention to the riveting
    climax. Overall Manithan deserves to be watched for its very good
    script, hard hitting dialogues and an excellent performance from its

    A good entertainer for all.

    This is essentially a well made remake of the original Hindi version of
    Jolly LLB. This movie has been very well made to suit well for the
    Tamil audience better and appeal to mass crowd. Nevertheless it also
    manages to scrape of good marks in terms of being a good film.

    The core story is closely based on a real life incident – ” 1999 Delhi
    Hit and Run Case ” involving a person named Sanjeev Nanda, son a rich
    Industrialist Suresh Nanda ran over and killing many.

    The story has slightly been modified and has been made into a fine
    script to suit the silver screen.

    The performances of Radha Ravi as the Judge and Prakash Raj as the
    Lawyer are simply brilliant. Udhayanidhi has made a good attempt to
    perform, but he requires a to put a lot more efforts. Hansika looks
    beautiful in this movie, providing the moral support needed for the
    protagonist but other than that she merely remains a set property like
    most heroines do inn commercial cinema.

    This is a definitely a cinema you can watch for some good
