Rajini is really the KING (Mannan)
26 December 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A movie's success can be viewed in many ways. Many claim a movie is very much successful only when it stands the test of time. Not only should the movie be good and hit at the time when it was released, but it should be well and good when seen after a very long time. And Mannan tried to be one for quite some time, at least for the Tamil audience, definitely not world wide. The best thing about the movie is the portrayal of the ego clash between a male and female. It just is simply stunning, even now it is. And the comedy of Rajinikanth and Goundamani stands the test of time. I can say that this movie had one of Goundamani's best ever comedies allied with the superstar. The "Amma" song is a deity by Illayaraja and Jesudas that still melts the heart of each and every living human being on earth. As a whole, Mannan is a must watch movie for every superstar fan!
