Meen Kuzhambum Mann Paanaiyum film written and directed by Amudheswar and produced by Dushyanth Ramkumar, was released on the 11th of September 2016 staring Prabhu as Annamalai, Kalidas Jayaram as Karthik, Ashna Zaveri as Pavithra and Pooja Kumar as Mala in lead roles. The movie also has Kamal Haasan featuring in a few scenes as a guest appearance.The Main story begins with Annamalai’s (Prabhu) Wife who dies during Child labour,and Annamalai leaves his home town to Malaysia. Here he meets his son Karthik(Kalidas Jayaram) and things don’t jell well as both their style of living don’t go well on one hand Annamalai is your typical villager and on the other karthik your local city boy.The first half of the story lack humour and is more of serious content although the 2nd half is comparatively more jovial. Music director D.Imman has done a decent job though we personally feel the tunes were not catchy and rather satisfactory in general. The cast of the movie have acted well and have lived up to what is required by their character, but it certainly is not a out of the world performance.to sum it up we would say Meen Kuzhambum Mann Paanaiyum is a decent family entertainer and a onetime watch affair.
Pros: Decent comedy
Cons: poor expression of a good script, lack of continuous flow of humor
Verdict: Meen Kuzhambum Mann Paanaiyum is a decent family entertainer and a onetime watch.
