An average movie from K.V Anand.
12 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Maattrran, released with high expectations could not keep up to the level of K.V Anand or Suriya movies. First half of the movie is engaging and funny with good acting from Surya twins and kajal agarwal. Second half is very lengthy and not interesting as of the first half. Second half fully deals with science and many scenes are not digestible to ordinary men. Fight scenes are just meant for tamil fans and is hard to digest for others.The climax is lengthy and is boring. Climax should have been made better for its long run in theaters. The funny thing in the movie is that Suriya twins are Vijay fans. Performance from Suriya is good and that of Kajal Agarwal is excellent. Other crew had also done well. Overall the movie should have been made better. For me, its the first 'not hit' movie from K.V Anand who had done all his movies brilliantly. Songs are good and matches the situations. The movie is average and its a return for Suriya from the clouds of success back to earth.
