Kamal Hassan – K S Ravikumar combination brought the house down with their comic entertainers in “Thenali”, “Panchathanthiram” and to an extent “Dasavatharam” which were all super-hits  has tried to repeat the same result with their latest release “Manmadhan Ambu” and the verdict is that they have been more successful than their previous venture. The movie has story, screenplay and dialogue written by Kamal Hassan and K S Ravikumar has directed it to perfection.

The central characters in the film are Major R Mannar (Kamal Hassan), Madhanagopal (Madhavan) and Ambujakshi (Trisha). The title is a combination of the names of these three characters. Kamal Hassan from the face of it looks like he has enjoyed every moment of the film from its scripting stage. The movie does begin on a slow pace with Kamal Hassan making an entry only in the 20th minute of the film. But once he jumps into the fray the pace of the movie moves at a steady pace and towards the latter half of the movie it is a non-stop laugh riot for the viewers.

Ambu is a leading actress who is engaged to Madhan a businessman. Due to some misunderstanding, Ambu sets on a tour to Europe along with her close friend Deepa (Sangeetha) who is a divorcee with two kids. Major Mannar joins Ambu on the behest of Madhan to find out if Ambu is a genuine character or not. When Major follows the trail of Ambu the story begins to take varying proportions and in the end though there is a predictable ending to the tale but at the same time there are also surprises which the viewers didn’t expect.

In terms of acting Kamal Hassan has proved that he is a master in his craft as he displays exemplary performance that suits his character perfectly. Trisha somehow has not got a challenging role to display her acting while Madhavan has pulled it off with his acting especially in the second-half. Sangeetha who returns to silver screen post her marriage fits the bill of the character to perfection.

There are a battery of supporting actors who do not have significant roles to play in the storyline have given good performances in the limited screen space given to them in the film and they are Ramesh Aravind, Urvashi, Caroline, Sriman, Usha Uthup and Oviya. Survya makes a special appearance in the beginning of this “Manmadhan Ambu”. The movie has a running time of 155 minutes and is sure to reap rich dividends at the box-office.

Music by Devi Sri Prasad is a major let down as none of the songs linger in the mind after the film is over except for the “Manmadhan Ambu” title song. Editing by Shan Mohammed could have been more tighter while Cinematography by Manush Nandan is commendable. Director K S Ravikumar who along with Kamal Hassan has once again proved that they are indeed the team who understands the pulse of the audience better.

“Manmadhan Ambu” – sit, relax and enjoy.
