After a few outings as commercial hero, udhayanidhi Stalin tries to offer something different in Manithan. The movie directed by I Ahmed is a battle at the corrupt that exposes our legal loop holes, while emotions are given a back seat.

The need to overhaul the system is subtly said here.What makes it more interesting is that that there are no typical angry arguments in the movie in court. Rather added with a tinge of comedy and that makes it an interesting watch.

The movie stars Udhayanidhi, Hansika, Prakash Raj, Aishwarya Rajesh, Radharavi and Vivek   Music is by Santosh Narayanan.  Madhie Cranks the camera and dialogues by Ajayan Bala.

The court room, the lanes of Parrys are beautifully recreated. Udhay both as an actor and a producer impresses. Ahmed too deserve appreciation for he stuck to the task. He has not tinkered much in the priginal but for few comedy scenes and Ishwarya's portion.

Udhay is a struggling lawyer who comes from Pollachi to Chennai with a challenge to make it big as an advocate in He comes across top advocate in the country Adhiseshan (Prakashraj) arguing in a hit and ruin case involving a business tycoon's son in which six sleeping in platform were killed.

Adhiseshan with his skilled arguement wins the case too. But strangely, now Sakthi files a PIL against him. The pandora box opens again. There are some interesting twists and turn and Sakthi eventually becomes a crusader  taking it on hi hands to fight Adhisehshan and legal system and ensure justice for all.

Udhay plays a superb show and he manages to bring the actor in him. He emotes well and his performance towards the climax is superb.

The movie is inspired by Hindi hit Jolly LLB. And matching up their theur stars the likes of Prakashraj and Radharavi have performed. And Hansika has very little to do, while Iswhwarya Rajesh plays a television journalist. Vivek's comedy one-liners are worth a watch.

Produced by Fox Star and Red Giant Movies, Manithan is a superb show.
