Superb,hard gripping and an awesome game by Venkat Prabhu and Ajith
3 September 2011 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

After an average outing with Ajith in Aasal and Aegan,Ajith has made a big comeback with his 50th Golden Jublee,MANKATHA.Performances from all stars were awesome,but the main show stoppers were Ajith and Arjun.The first half of the film seemed like its screenplay was not coordinated well.However,the second half neatly explained the first half without leaving any flaws in the movie.This film plot is one of the best plots derived in Tamil cinema.'Nanbane' song was not needed,but it didn't disrupt the screenplay at all.MANKATHA is seriously Ajith's best.Go for it,enjoy the game and never miss it in the big screens.

Rating:8.8/10
