A Well Made Remake
2 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Manithan (2016) is the remake of a well received bollywood movie Jolly LLB. Director Ahmed has done his best to remake a well written courtroom drama for Tamil audience.

The movie starts with Uday (hero of the movie) , a lawyer in the sessions court at Pollachi. He struggles to argue in the courtroom and win a case. He is getting mocked by everyone for being a failure in his career. He wants to prove himself to his girlfriend Hansika and decides to practice law in the high court in Chennai. He joins his uncle Vivek who is also a lawyer in the high court. What Uday did to prove himself to the world is the rest of the story.

Notable performances from Prakash Raj, Radha Ravi elevates the tension of the courtroom scenes. Hansika and Ishwarya have done their roles as expected. Uday has done his best till date especially in the Climax scene. Vivek makes a good comeback and brings in laughs at the right times.

As a whole very well executed courtroom drama with excellent performances all around. Go and watch it in theaters.
