Vishal Menon Film Companion Despite the compromises in the second half, Mari Selvaraj's third film remains powerful, proving to be a testament to how his voice remains the loudest. Jul 11, 2024 Full Review Hariharan Krishnan Film Companion Despite the presence of an amazing actor like Vijay Sethupathi, who is able to navigate many of his films on his shoulders, this film seems to be losing its way. Nov 2, 2023 Full Review M Suganth The Times of India the time that it ends, it turns into something more — a saga that is quietly affecting. Rated: 3/5 Nov 2, 2023 Full Review Karthik Keramalu Firstpost Maamanithan doesn’t beat around the bush and tells a nice story straight from the heart. Nov 2, 2023 Full Review Srivatsan S The Hindu Vijay Sethupathi and Gayathrie try their best to save this simple melodrama from sinking. Nov 2, 2023 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Maamannan is hate-filled, idiotic garbage with excessive scenes of animal cruelty. It rehashes the same old plots of family feuds and murderous revenge that have already been done in much better ways in many other action flicks. Jul 12, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Purushotham I am a physician working in Mayo Clinic and had the opportunity to see a Tamil movie after a long time in theater in AMC Times Square. What a fantastic philosophy of disparity in caste and people approach in secularism, director Mari Selvaraj did a marvelous direction. Vadivelu was seen as best comedian so far, now he proved as a mature serious actor as father and he did a serious action in Rajakaliamman in front of Sakthi! Above all my younger favorite hero is Udhayanidhi Stalin who fabulously did along with Keerthi Suresh. Villain Fahad Fazil did a tremendous achievement in his actions. Well Done Red Giant productions Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/04/23 Full Review Suarez Padama Idhu.. Kodumai Pa Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/30/23 Full Review Ted J this movie is a dog killing movie and promote animal cruelty. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review priyanka n The scene about killing dog is very disturbing... this kind of scenes in a movie is not a appropriating fact. Though it's fiction, it does create impact on people. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/30/23 Full Review Birithivy Y Maamannan - 9/10. The third best film that Mari Selvaraj has directed in his career. Nothing wrong with that, and its obviously very hard to top the stupendously brilliant Pariyerum Perumal and the very solid Karnan. Maamannan for the most part is a brilliant political thriller that has some optimism in it. Mari's hope is that people will exercise their voting privileges and vote for the right individuals, and also his hope is that the politicians themselves will respect each other without resorting to any hatred or beneath level minded things. The intermission and the scene around it is one of the best in recent times, and really captures the casteism commentary in this movie so brilliantly. Vadivelu is in top top form here, providing an incredibly layered and brilliant performance as the elder politician who gains confidence and respect within himself when he reconnects with his estranged son. As a whole, people might find the second half a little laggy due to the election portions, but in my opinion, this is another solid solid attempt from Mari in talking about social justice in a new and different way. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/29/23 Full Review sreeram R Such a ugly cheap movie. Only these cheap Mari Selvaraj and Madras Director Pa. Ranjith keep making all these cheap casteist movies. These movies will keep thinking about Caste presence in the society. Pig vs Dog scene was gore to the highest extent. I don't think they are graphics, looks very real. These cheap DMK and their supporting Director will keep Caste in TN forever.. Yuck Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
