Maattrraan (U)----------------my Rating : 4/5 VERY GOOD

* It is an action thriller which deals with the genetic science....

* Cast: Surya performance was great as twins and it was different whereas in second half Surya comes back to the single role...Kajal was glamorous and beautiful on the big screen.... * Direction: K.v.anand has taken the film very brilliantly and camera was really good as the visuals were very clear as we are watching an Hollywood movie in both songs and foreign location scenes... * Music and BGM : Harris rocked the songs especially my favorite is "Rendai Thirigae and theeya theya second song" and BGM will vibrate u... * Story : Fantastic thriller ...story starts with a fun package and it gets more disappointment before interval as because the story goes very touching and the second half full of mystery chase... costumes were superb of surya and kajal...

  • NEGATIVE : story is very large runs 2.40mins... - Second half contains more English and thrilling scripts this will leads some not to get understand....As i understood clearly and enjoyed the flick completely....


If u leave a single scene...u will get completely out of script ...

Overall It will do great at box office and I enjoyed HOPE U also...
