The songs amp up the power of the movie, whereas the rating is topnotch all through and doesn’t let the depth die down at any level. The visuals by Theni Eshwar is apt too, and captures the fiery frames with nice precision.
Mari Selvaraj’s Maamannan doesn’t have the continued depth current in movies corresponding to Pariyerum Perumal and Karnan – the movie does current itself fantastically however can not do away with few uninteresting moments popping up right here and there. Nonetheless, the director as soon as once more delivers an impactful and essential movie that talks about urgent points and drives dwelling an amazing debate on the identical.
