Mambattiyan (2011) Review Aggregator
Mambattiyan directed by Thiagarajan, starring his son Prashanth along with Meera Jasmine, Prakash Raj, Vadivelu and Mumaith Khan in other pivotal roles, is a remake of the 1983 Tamil blockbuster of the same title that starred Thiagarajan himself and Saritha. The film that has been released doesn’t have many takers going by the reviews!
The film is plain lame, says Rediff: “You know just how a movie is going to fare when its comedian and dancing-girl sidekick receive more applause than the hero himself. That’s pretty much the case with Lakshmi Movies’ Mambattiyaan, a remake of the earlier version with Thiagarajan.”
IBN Live calls it outdated: “Director Thyagarajan chose a story with proven potential. He also had a fine script and he just had to update few things and he e tried to give the movie a slick look by adding few elements. But he has grossly failed to make it appealing.”
Nowrunning says you have seen it all: “If you intend to see Mambattiyan, don’t. You’ve already seen this movie staged elsewhere with different people. You already know what every scene means and what’s going to come next.”
