Fairly Engaging Political Drama!

The establishments are slow yet decently done with a terrific interval block that creates excitement for the latter. But the second half is middling, which eventually reduces the intensity and the emotional quotient as the film progresses.(more)

An okayish, but hardly potent sociopolitical drama

It is when he pushes the scope of the narrative to a larger framework that the film's dramatic potency gets diluted.

Mari Selvaraj's 'Maamannan' is a solid drama, with a gripping first half and a generic post-interval section

Even Maamannan�s win at the elections doesn�t give us a high. But I was tremendously moved by the fact that his wife is still terrified. She does not yet have the guts that her son already had and her husband has newly acquired. Change doesn�t come in a day. I love how Mari makes sure things are nev...(more)
