Storyline

Mythili (Jyothika) has recurrent nightmares of being attacked by a serial killer. When she meets a man Mathan (Simbu) who looks like the serial killer in her dreams, she is at once horrified and attracted. Mathan does in fact fit the description of a man who prowls and kills "westernized" women in bars. When the net closes in on Mathan, Mythili is inadvertently sucked into the police investigation into the grisly murders. Simbu's first filmmaking venture makes watchable fare and is a significant departure from his earlier 'little superstar' series. Written by Joyojeet Pal

A novel rip-off
6 May 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

This movie was definitely of a different genre compared to the other Tamil movies released around the same time. Silambarasan's acting was also quite good. Add to it the fact that he acts like Rajnikanth, who is revered by the Tamils. I believe it was these three factors that made everyone applaud Manmadhan.

However, one had to only see Kamal Haasan's Sigappu Rojakkal to see how Silamabarasan used the same theme (hatred of women) and story but tweaked the story line to create a mystery. If you have never seen Sigappu Rojakkal, you will enjoy Manmadhan. But since I had seen Kamal's movie first, I was not very impressed by Manmadhan. The events leading up to the main character's hatred for women sound more logical in Sigappu Rojakkal. Furthermore, I cannot understand why Jyothika looked so old in this movie - she seemed to be wearing no makeup. Add to this the real age difference between Silambarasan and Jyothika! But I have to credit Silamabarasan with the way he introduced some novel concept (the usage of a twin brother) to make the movie a mystery while Sigappu Rojakkal seemed to be pure horror.
