The Tamil flick M Kumaran s/o Mahalakshmi is the remake of a Telugu movie. The movie is a directorial venture by Raja, Ravi’s brother who directed the blockbuster movie Jayam. The movie has every resemblance to the original Telugu movie. And, the fact that Jayam Ravi appears as a kick-boxer in the movie will attract audiences to the movie in spite of a clichéd story.


Nadiya is ditched by her husband Prakash Raj, who is a kick boxer. She moves to Chennai with her son Jayam Ravi. She loves her son very much, and she wants to make her son a kick boxer and takes up all efforts to make him a good kick boxer. Nadiya is also a lecturer in a college. As Unfortunately, Nadiya dies out of a cardiac arrest. But, before dying, she asks her son to go to her father, Prakash Raj. The rest of the movie is about how Jayam Ravi deals with his estranged father, who is married again, and whether he reestablishes ties with his Prakash Raj.

Star Performances:

Jayam Ravi has done the role of the son of Mahalakshmi, the character that has been done by Nadiya Jayam Ravi is good to look at as a kick-boxer and has emoted well. Nadiya pulls off an earnest performance as a doting mother while Asin is at her chirpy best. Prakash Raj, as Jayam Ravi’s father, has done his role commendably.


Asin comes as a Kerala girl in the movie, and Jayam Ravi calls her Malabar and romances her. The romantic scenes cause a sigh of relief in this otherwise very lengthy movie. The comedy track is by Vivek, and his performance appears clichéd, and he has borrowed comedy from several other movies.

What is there?

Nadiya is the asset to the otherwise average movie.
The songs by Srikanth Deva are quite ok.
Jayam Ravi’s role of kickboxer suits him well.

What is not there?  

The movie is very lengthy.
The comedy track by Vivek is not pleasing.


A one-time watch movie.
