Maatraan Movie Review

Cast: Suriya,Kajal Aggarwal, Isha Sharvani,Sachin Khedekar,Tara
Music: Harris Jayaraj
Director: KV Anand
Producer: Kalpathi S Aghoram
Banner: AGS Agoram Entertainment

The successful and irresistible combination of Suriya and K.V. Anand, which scored heavily in Ayan a few years ago, is back with a bang. To hit the nail on its head, the duo hasn’t disappointed the long wait the fans had to endure for the theatrical release of Maatraan. It looks like Anand, who has an eye not only for shooting in foreign countries but also in involving those countries in his script, has come out with yet another winner.


Let’s now take a ‘sneak peak’ in to the much-awaited script in recent times. Genetic scientist Ramakrishna’s(Sachin Khedekar) wife (Tara) delivers conjoined twins as her first child(ren). Strangely enough, Ramu and his wife are advised by the doctors to ‘kill’ one child so that the possibility of the other child surviving and living longer is created. As you expected and guessed rightly, Ramu’s wife refuses to do so and vows to herself to bring them up together showering equal and love and affection on both.

Twins Vimalan and Akilan (Suriya) are literally ‘inseparable’ both physically and mentally. However, their character differs from each other by a huge margin. While Vimalan comes across as shy, educated and well-mannered, Akilan is the opposite type: he cares a least about everything, he’s raw and lacks the fear for his life. The irony is that the twins survive on one heart only, which the Almighty has placed in Vimalan’s side of the body.

Professional jealousy ensures that Ramakrishnanโ€™s novel ideas and suggestions are overlooked by his his employers. He ends up feeling exasperated despite possessing limitless talent and abundant energy. His wife encourages him to launch his own firm making health drink for children with the brand name Energian. He courts success sooner than expected. At the success bash of the product, the twins come across Anjali (Kajal Aggarwal) and both of them fall head-over-heels in love with her. Anjali, however, likes Vimalan’s company and his mannerisms.

Volga, a Russian girl employed by Ramu’s professional enemies, befriends the twins to use them to find the company’s patented drink-making formula. Vimalan gets a hint that Volga was, in fact, trying to stop his father from committing a criminal act and before he could uncover the truth, Volga dies under doubtful circumstances not before she swallows an all-important pen drive containing some ‘vital data’. Despite Ramu’s efforts, he couldn’t get it whereas it’s Anjali who gets it and promptly gives it to Vimalan.

The turn of events which follow result in Vimalan dying before the doctors transplant his heart to Akilan. Watch the film to find out whether Ramu’s ‘act’ was unearthed or whether Anjali still loved Vimalan’s heart which was now inside Akilan’s body.

Script analysis

KV Anand, the cinematographer-turned director, does dwell deep into unheard of subjects. This time too, he’s taken up a very different script which is unheard of in the annuls of the history of Tamil films. The way he has handled the struggle between (uncontrollable) nature (controllable) science is really commendable. The script has many twists and turns in it, enough to keep the audiences sit glued to the screen for more than two-and-a-half hours.

However, the script is not without its share of flaws. Akilan transforming totally like Vimalan after the demise of the latter is incomprehensible. Also, the director, as a script-writer, could have shown more responsibility and seriousness in showing the involvement of some foreign countries in a volatile issue. The sensibility in dealing with ‘foreign countries’ in the script is sadly missing. The way Suriya gets things done in Ukraine, shown to be under army’s control, smacks of childishness.

Cast and crew analysis

Count on him to dig water from a rock and he’d do it for you. Over the years, Suriya has become a complete actor and slips into the roles given to him with consummate ease and Maatraan is no exception. Suriya’s contrasting display in the roles of Vimalan and Akilan is simply mind-boggling. It’s not his fault that the character lacks the panache towards the story’s end.

Bubbly Kajal Aggarwal looks gorgeous and displays her curvaceous body to great effect, much to the delight of her fans. She shows glimpses of her acting potential as well. Bollywood’s Sachin Khedekar fits the villain’s role as a pair of hands would fit a glove. Every other artiste has done his/her part responsibly.

Stunts are a great revelation for Suriya, who has already emoted and danced his way into the audiences’ hearts. Peter Hein deserves kudos for training Suriya fit enough: watch out for the stunt sequence at the park. Cinematography is very well but songs by Harris Jayaraj are rather unimpressive except for Rettai Kavithai.

However, Harris makes up for an excellent background score throughout the film.

Positive points

Different storyline, fast moving script, Suryaโ€™s solid performance, and spectacular scenes.

Negative points

Lacking in credibility in many portions, not-so-good songs, and tedious second half.


Overall, the film qualifies for interesting viewing with some spectacular scenes and stunts despite some serious logical flaws.

Maatraan: Complicated yet impressive!



  1. Jangri

    I didn’t even know the movie was released…lol.anyways I shall watch it.but from the review here it seems it has traces of ‘ayan’.any one else feel the same way??also in charulatha one of the girl dies and the other survives.not that I am comparing or anything I just told..

    1. Swathy

      Hey guyz, im a die hard surya fan, and to be honest, i loved this movie, it was great to see the adorable surya, and i think he has become the best of the best now, love the scienctific films he does nowadays, i think they’re very interesting and credible, i tlked to many of my friends who watched this, they loved it just as much as i did, but we cudnt stand the part where vimal died…and surya, his tears can make anyone tearful..gr8 film, loved every second, thanks for a gr8 film surya

  2. Surya Fan

    I’m disappointed as a Surya fan – thought it’ll be double dhamaka but turned into too much of a flop ๐Ÿ™

  3. Akash

    It is a totally disappointment for the movie and not up to the expectation. The movie is not at all comparable to earlier hits of KV Ananad Ko and Ayan… This movie is dumb and songs r very bad. Surya has to change himself… he is very keen on showing his 6 pack body than anything better in every movies now a days… In some scenes when hero is too small and heroine is above the hero… One more flop for Surya again…

    1. Kadavul

      Epic lol dude you are Vijay fan right? lol look at how Vijay them dumb ass acts or…he doesn’t even dance bitch!

      1. Kullan Surya Olipavar Sangam

    1. Raki

      Hi, I am not a fan of Surya or any other actors. Just by spending few Rs. you are writing this comments. Its your own taste. If you don’t like why are you watching the movie and wasting your time and money. They have spent crores of crores of money and their hard work. Don’t discourage anyone. What did you achieve in your life? Before criticizing others think your position. Learn to appreciate others.

      1. Kullan Surya Olipavar Sangam

  5. Raw

    All Surya haters , think before u comment, calling somebody kullan or their appearance is degrading . In life if u have felt personally u will understand. Take a trip to the children hospital to see how many children suffer from deadly diseases and have birth diffects and do we reject them. Gandhi faught for humanity, but India still struggle from hurting women, child abuses and cast.

        1. Cimcifuga

          Dont comment on somebody’s physical appearance, God is watching you…..God hates haughtiness, if he gives dwarf child to you, what will u do?

  6. Cinema Periyan

    AAha….. Padam vanthu Mokai inu puriyuthu…..
    Namma samugam…padam parthu valarntha samugam…. So namma poyee paaboam…

    But I think it is going to be like Charulatha… even Priyamani acting was Good in that movie…..

    Note : Cinema should come out from Corporate producers to get some good movie.. ithuku oru example Sasi yoda padam..

    Neega fight pannatheinga !!! avanuga elam nallathaan irukanuga !!
    Amma “RAW” ithu poyee .. Gandhi ..Nehru ellam quote pannatha…. Namma.. nammale parthukuvoam… yarumae nallavan illa….

    1. Aiyo!

      Well said. Some people realise this only after a bitter experience,let them! Arithe arithe manidaray pirapathu arithe. But people like this never understand this,they waste their life time by talking and hurting others.

    1. Jangri

      rightly said! @ indian

      they said surya is a thalai ganam pidithavan.evanga rombha down to earth na yethuku surya va mattam thatturanga?the only fault they can say is surya is short.yeppo paaru kullan kullan nutu.yes,average man ku he is short so??why matha actors oda fans ellam rombha nettai nu nenappo??short fans eruntha che pongada thu nu verati vituduvangala??short nu solranga appo world’s shortest man ah ennanu solvanga??

      vijay ah thooki veikartha nenachu avan maanatha avan fans than vaanguthunga.if you want to praise ur star,go ahead and do that but not at the expense of other actors that only shows ur cheap mentality and how headstrong you guys are.even if you want to debate about their movies let it be a healthy non offensive discussion.

      vijay fans panra akkaporu thaanga mudiyala.seri enamo panitu poranganu vitta koncham kuda uruthal illama pachaiya pesuranga,ladies and family ah vambuku ilukuranga.i don’t see ajith surya vikram fans talking so lowly about women unless they are provoked by some vijay fan.because of their foul mouth,no one wishes to argue with a vijay fan,so those fans take it as a victory that they or their star cannot be beaten.but the fact is people already know vijay fans are incorrigible.dushtana kanda doora vilagu nu solra mathiri vijay fans ah kanda elarum doora vilaguranga.

      enna panrathu kaliyugam..kettathu thalaivirithu aatam poduthu nallava onnum seiya mudiyama vedikai parka vendiyatha eruku.bagavan than kapathanum…

          1. Jangri

            @indian, yes i agree with ur comment.i too am not a fan of any actors,i support good film and acting regardless of the actor.visay did do some good movies in the past like kathaluku mariyathai but nowadays its all crap.i can’t stand his over alapparai.avan fans athukum mela.maybe as you say these visay pans want only him to act in films.they want to kick visay’s competitors out of the industry,when that happens only then their bowel movements will be regular.till then they will be constipating and vent that anger/frustration on other actors and their fans like this.visay pans all have one motto: namma thalaivaruku rendu kannu ponalum paravayilla aana matha actors oda oru kannaiyavathu pidungama vidamattom.matha actors ah kurai solrathum avanga fans ah kochaiya pesarthume polappa vechikitu suthuranunga thooo…ethunga ellam solli thirunthura jenmanga kedayathu,as you epadiyavathu poi tholayattum nu vittuda vendiyathuthan.

  15. karthikramaswamy

    Maatraan suryas acting is superb.He again proved himself that he is a best actor.First half simply superb second half very worst and childish unbelievable.Other draw back of the movie is music songs and RR is not good. My mark is 2 stars out of five

  16. Siva

    Bravo attempt by K.V Anand .. he always taken serious social issues in his movies this time also taken the impact of science and international super power bad behaviour towards developing country like us .. Climax is simply superb.. people who can keenly watch and observe that the scientist (surya’s father) who used the children as “laboratory rats” killed by the same rats .. Hats off surya keep going ..

  17. Virus destroying software company

    Due to malware virus which was shared by maatran mp3 video’s etc.. on net has created huge malware functions which has effected most of the systems who have shared the media things related to maatran has effected the .dll files and was corrupted, we are on the progress removing those malware so far we have taken the database backup and truncated the tables and functions soon we will sync and make the systems alive without effecting the malware.. fans pls co-operate in case ur system craches.. i request the movie makers to post the movie related things without any virus produced from it… thanks for ur co-operation…
