High on the familiarity aspect, but Santhosh Narayanan delivers a more engaging soundtrack than the Bollywood original (Jolly LLB) had
Vipin, Music Aloud
'Manithan', is a pleasing OST from Santosh Narayanan, who nicely adapts himself into mainstream housing
Siddarth Srinivas, Only Kollywood
The levelheaded approach shown by Ahmed & Udhayanidhi in not tinkering much with the core of Jolly LLB

The Tamil version does not boast of strong characters
S Saraswathi, REDIFF
Ahmed'€™s movie is 25 minutes longer than Jolly LLB, and the director uses this time to incorporate what to me seemed like a romantic preamble to the courtroom drama
Gautaman Bhaskaran, Hindustan Times
'Manithan', a remake of the Bollywood film Jolly LLB, is a welcome relief in this age of ghosts and guns

The film spends a considerable amount of time meandering on with the lead man'€™s social awkwardness, before it finally finds its groove
Mani Prabhu, iFlickz
Ahmed did a great job in keeping the essence of original and containing it without tampering
Sajid, Cinema Glitz
