Different attempt but stupid presentation
15 October 2012 | by (Chennai) – See all my reviews

First of all i was frustrated with this year's biggies all flopping down........but i had some hope on Maattrraan due to KV Anand.....But he too proved that a good story and an excellent actor like Surya are not enough to make a movie a grand success.

Surya has performed well especially in the sentiment scenes.Kajal is also offered much scope in the movie.

The movie is pretty enjoyable in the first half but many illogical scenes and poor screenplay in second half make it pretty awkward and a senseless climax kills the movie.Many scenes resemble 7am Arivu.

Overall this movie could have been done better if there was a much better screenplay
