Starring: Karu Palaniappan, Meenakshi, Santhanam, Rishi
Direction: Karu Palaniappan
Music: Vidyasagar
Production: Karthik Nagarajan
Karu Palaniappan’s creation ‘Mandhira Punnagai’ starring Meenakshi and Santhanam sees Karu Palaniappan himself turn a hero in this venture. He enacts a cynical role with a rugged aggressive look that perfectly suits him. Heroine Meenakshi made her debut in Karuppusamy Kuththagaithaarar. Santhanam the top comedian in recent days, having
  Mandhira punnagai
two power hits to his latest credit, Siva Manasula Sakthi and Boss Engira Baskaran adorns a vital role.

Karu Palaniappan is known for his successful releases like Parthiban Kanavu, Sivappathigaram and Pirivom Santhippom that stand a class apart from the general trend of Tamil cinema with a fine touch of dexterity and expertise well evident in every scene. The director has touched the delicate emotions like love, joy, contempt that give frequent mood swings. His deftness in handling these emotions brushes through the storyline that very beautifully twines human relationships. Love being the prime emotion in life is very much there in every individual but reflects itself in differing angles in each one’s life.

The hero is a person who lives in a world of his own. The hero conceptualizes life in a different perspective. He has no belief in love and remains absolutely unaffected by it. Heroine Meenakshi plays the tough character trying to change the adamant hero deep rooted in his beliefs against love. Director Nakulan Ponnuswamy plays a role too. Sun TV’s ‘Deal or No Deal’ anchor Rishi plays a supportive role in this film.

The film’s music by Vidyasagar has feet tapping to all the numbers. It has become a trend that Vidyasagar’s music never goes unnoticed anytime, so has it been here too. The lyrics as always find an important place in this movie too as in all other films directed by Karu Palaniappan. Of course Vidyasagar’s stress on the lyrics is a known fact. The songs have been penned by lyricists Arivumathi, Yugabharati and Viveka to the musical compositions of Vidyasagar.

Cinematography has been handled by Ramnath Shetty, Art by Rajeevan and editing by Raja Muhamathu. The movie is produced by Karthik Nagarajan under the banner of Indra pictures.

With Nagaram and Magizhchi releasing on the same day, we hope Mandira Punnagai will weave its magic and bring smiles on our faces.
