Direction: A Venkatesh
Music: Mani Sharma
Production: Feather Touch Entertainment
Nothing succeeds like success. That is how Maanja Velu happened. After the success of Malai Malai, there seemed to be no second thoughts about whether the same team should get together again. So, A.Venkatesh once again directed Arun Vijay in a film produced by Feather Touch Entertainment and things are much bigger this time round.

Last time, Arun Vijay was in the company of stalwarts like Prabhu and Prakash Raj. This time too Prabhu is part of the package. The new addition is Karthik who is hot on his comeback trail. With films like Raavanan happening, there seems to be nothing stopping this actor who has had many years in the wilderness now.

Maanja Velu, a remake of the 2007 Telugu super hit Lakshyam starring Gopichand, Anushka and Jagapathi Babu, tells the story of a family and the troubles it faces because of one of them being a righteous police officer. Duty demands him to rub
  Maanja Velu
many people the wrong way and when those people are hard core criminals, they choose the most heinous ways to take revenge. The story is a mixture of all that makes a good entertainer- family, sentiments, drama, action and comedy.

Arun Vijay plays Velu in the film with Karthik playing his elder brother. The actor looks young and fresh, that might be perhaps we are seeing him on screen after a long time. Dhansika plays the female lead in Maanja Velu. Riyaz Khan is also part of the cast. Ganja Karuppu and Santhanam are there to provide the comic relief. Mani Sharma has scored the music for Maanja Velu.

Maanja Velu will be a sustainability test for Arun Vijay who has had his first commercial success in a long time with Malai Malai. It will also be a touchstone for the director-actor team which is looking to deliver the second hit on the trot. The film will be keenly followed for a variety of reasons; one being the bald look that Arun Vijay has sported for a portion of the film and more importantly because of the return of one of the most loved romantic heroes of Tamil cinema.
