Sangathalaivan is scripted and directed by Manimaran. “Samuthirakani,” “Karunas,” Ramya Subramanian, “Sunulakshmi,” Vikram Anand and Mariumuthu are in the cast. “Vetrimaaran” produced the film. Srinivas Devamsam cranked the camera.


Sivalingam is a socialist and he always works for the welfare of the workers. Rangan works in a factory. Once an accident talks place in the factory and Rangan’s colleague gets affected. The employer denies giving compensation. So, Rangan and Sivalingam fight against the employer and force him to compensate the affected person. This makes the employer angry and he takes revenge against Rangan and Lingam. Did they escape from his evil plans? The rest of the story deals with whether they escaped or not.

Star Performance

Samuthirakani didn’t get any new role and he did his part well, as usual. Karunas excelled well in his role. Marimuthu, Sunulakshmi, Ramya and Vikram Anand did justice to the given roles.


With the title and Samuthirakani in the lead role, everyone could easily understand the film's concept and it disappoints the people, story-wise. But, Samuthirakani’s role is nothing new and he should minimize doing such monotonous character, as he is already addressed for doing these kinds of movies that come with preachy sequences. Some characters are developed well and some are left out half-baked. Stars are picked rightly and they didn’t disappoint. However, the screenplay should have been penned better with some gripping elements and something new. The film is fully predictable, as the script is open along with its title.

What’s There?

  • Performances of the stars are neat

What’s Not There?

  • Samuthirakani’s role is nothing different
  • Predictable scenes
  • Unimpressive screenplay


Sangathalaivan has some good performances amidst the predictable story. If you love watching stories that have some activist kind of scenes and social messages, you can try this!
