User Reviews

An excellent screenplay and technical brilliance
10 March 2017 | by aniseprakashSee all my reviews

Lokesh Kanagaraj a debutant (Which is hard to believe) has delivered an exciting movie watching experience. Managaram is a kind of movie which doesn't fall even for a minute (Not even in the songs).

The movie starts off with different characters and different lives moves into something unexpected. Though it has too many characters, Lokesh hasn't wasted time in introductions. The story webs around us from frame one.

No character is wasted, each and every character contributes something to the plot. The story travels at a phase, that if a scene is missed we might lose track. The planning and execution of each scene is a master class of Lokesh's screenplay.

The suspense that travels along with the plot keeps the audience hooked, even a one minute song might make us restless- an edge of the seat thriller. Lokesh's brilliant yet again takes him high in the climax, the end of the movie might give a confident booster because of the message it delivers.

Technical aspects: Technically the movie is strong, thought eh technicians are almost new. Cinematography by SK Selvakumar shows the reality of the metro. Each and every frame of his is real. We might encounter any of it in our real life.

Music by Javed Riaz has taken the movie to another extent. Though he doesn't have much to prove in songs the BGM works great time. Philomin's editing is tight packed. She has done an exceptional job in bringing Lokesh's screenplay to life.

Above all its Lokesh Kanagaraj's who has done ample of hard work which is evident throughout. His screenplay, the characters, the technical brilliance everything is a clear indication of his passion towards cinema. Though this is his debut he has taken over some experienced directors with his work for sure. Kollywood has got a brilliant director.

Cast performance: Cast has worked great time for the movie. Sundeep Kishan as a kind hearted rough guy has exhibited excellence. He was equally contributed by Sri who has lived his character throughout. Though Regina doesn't have much to contribute still she impresses. Charlie's acting has proved he wasn't used well by other directors. He does his character with ease. Above all its Munishkanth (Ramdoss) , he steals the whole movie with his funny dialogues. His comedy has worked in a great time and never falls flat. One of his career bests.

On the whole Managaram is a must watch for any moviegoer. It will stay in the hearts as one of the best screenplays ever.
