Will Radhakrishnan get rid of his problems and make his family happy? The rest of the film deals with this.

Star Performance

Vijay Sethupathi is a good actor and has already proved that. This film shows one of his natural performances and makes the audience go emotionally. Gayathrie excels in her role, and so does Guru.


Seenu Ramasamy has once again brought a character-driven story with some solid performers. Vijay Sethupathi, Gayathrie, and Guru Somasundaram are the apt choices for the given roles. These emotional stories are suitable only for the performers like Vijay Sethupathi. His chemistry with Gayathrie is impressive. The characters are defined well. Even a small character is shown in detail. The director has got the work done properly from the stars. The music by Ilaiyaraaja and sons is pretty decent. The cinematography is excellent, especially in the second half. The editing is neat.

What’s There?

  • The film is strong, technically

What’s There?

An emotional drama with good performers and execution makes Maamanithan, a sure one-time watch!
