Manithan - Movie Reviews

Manithan', generally hovers in the hmmm-not-all-that-bad-zone because it'€™s such a crowd-pleasing script
The Hindu
High on the familiarity aspect, but Santhosh Narayanan delivers a more engaging soundtrack than the Bollywood original (Jolly LLB) had
Music Aloud
'Manithan', is a pleasing OST from Santosh Narayanan, who nicely adapts himself into mainstream housing
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
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
Hindustan Times
'Manithan', a remake of the Bollywood film Jolly LLB, is a welcome relief in this age of ghosts and guns
The Times of India
The film spends a considerable amount of time meandering on with the lead man'€™s social awkwardness, before it finally finds its groove
Ahmed did a great job in keeping the essence of original and containing it without tampering
Cinema Glitz
'Manithan', is a courtroom drama featuring the conflict between good and evil
International Business Times
'Manithan', is an interesting courtroom drama that boasts of some solid writing and good performances
'Manithan', is a compelling courtroom drama with outstanding performances
Only Kollywood
Manithan is a worthy watch for the well-intentioned message it manages to put forward without any over-the-top emotions
Now Running
A laudable show by Santhosh Narayanan
