Pathetic package of Comedy
5 May 2014 | by aji4u4everSee all my reviews

Maan Karate is one of the worst movies that i have seen in recent times. Thanks for the DVD, otherwise i would have died in the theater.

Maan Karate is a story of care free guy who doesn't know about Boxing (what a pity, he didn't even heard of boxing) becomes a boxer to get his lover.

This movie is around 3 hours of hell. The acting, story, screenplay everything is dud in the movie. I still didn't understand that how it stormed the box office.

Siva Karthikeyan as usual do his style of carefree guy who roams in town. He has to change this kind of selection (if he seriously thinks about the acting), otherwise in a couple of years he will be out of the industry. He did somewhat justice to the role, but in some scenes he was too irritating.

Hansika Motwani: She once again proved that acting is not her field. She is irritating from the introduction scene to the end.. She was really testing my patience. I don't know why she is getting so many movies despite of her poor acting skills and extremely poor dancing skills..

Anirudh's songs were enjoyable but was actually speed breakers. I think the director used the songs to complete the 150 mins duration. Anirudh's background score was the major highlight of the movie. Songs picturization of the movie was also good in the movie.

This is thirukumaran's failed attempt as a director.

I would rate 1 on 5.

Verdict: Poor show
