Manvantara is a most popular Kannada serial. Like T.N.Seetharam’s other serials, Manvantara too deals with politics, bureaucracy, current affairs, exploitation of women, and introduction of law to people and of course middle-class families. In this serial politics are handled commendably by T.N.Seetharam. Manvantara has a populist plot, a realistic description of situations interrupted with moral and spiritual dimensions and ideological characterization. The director has balanced human drama and social lineament equally. He has represented the chief minister’s role in a true-to-life way. The role of chief minister- the protagonist of this serial is played by the real life politician, S.Ramesh Kumar.
T.N.Seetharam deserves applause for his confidence in selecting the theme of Manvatara.
