Review By : Movie Run Time : 2 hours 05 minutes Censor Rating : U

Production: Asian , Nallusamy Pictures Cast: Radhakrishnan Parthiban, Sri Divya, Vishnu Vishal Direction: Suseenthiran Screenplay: Suseenthiran Story: Suseenthiran Music: D Imman Cinematography: Soorya.A.R Editing: Kasi Viswanathan

Maaveeran Kittu, the third time collaboration of Vishnu Vishal and Suseenthiran has hit the screens today. The film talks about caste discrimination set in the 1980s backdrop. Vishnu Vishal, an ambitious college student is a good hearted youngster. An unexpected murder happens in his village, and Vishnu Vishal becomes the accused, unfortunately. Did Vishnu really execute the murder? Or is he falsely accused? The film answers all these questions.

First and foremost, director Suseenthiran can be applauded for sticking on to the core plot of the movie. There was no unnecessary diversion from the story. Dialogues need a worthy-mention. Yugabharathi, apart from writing the lyrics, has also written the dialogues for this film, and they are powerful and realistic.

There is humanity in the film. There is love, friendship, caste discrimination, unity, harmony, betrayal, and much more, but, somewhere around, the film loses its track and tests the audience's patience. The slow pace of the movie is surely a concern, especially the two duet songs in the second half don't work well.

The first half of the movie keeps you engaged and has the audience's attention. The interval portion definitely keeps you puzzled to know what will happen next. But once the latter half starts, it gets loose and slow. One might not expect the film to have an ending like that, but only then, the film would justify its title. Suseenthiran could have worked more on the screenplay to keep it more engaging, as the second half mostly comprises of sad and dull moments.

Vishnu Vishal has given a neat performance. His character is designed in a very subtle manner and the Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu actor makes no mistake in delivering that. Parthiepan deserves a mention for his strong performance as 'Chinraasu'. This film will be a memorable outing for him as an actor, after a long time. Sri Divya travels all throughout the film, but has very less scope to perform or emote. Her love portions with Vishnu Vishal are not much interesting. Soori, for the first time, appears in a serious role, but for a very brief time. One might wonder the need for him in the movie.

D. Imman's music is a big pillar for the movie, which adds so much value to the scenes. His songs are also pleasant to hear. Soorya's visuals capture the scenic beauty of the hill stations and the rural areas. The aerial shots in 'Inaivom' song are good. The other technical departments do what is expected of them.

Verdict: A strong content that could’ve been more impactful had the execution been better


2.5 5 ( 2.5 / 5.0 )








Review by : Behindwoods Review Board Album Release Date : Nov 04,2016

Maveeran Kittu is a period film starring Vishnu and Sri Divya in lead roles. Music for the film is composed by D.Imman.



Singers:  Pooja Vaidyanath
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

The album begins on a nostalgic note with a gripping melody sung by Pooja Vaidyanath. The usage of historic instruments such as harp and harmonica work quite well. The usage of jazzy keys in between is quite impressive as well. The song follows the typical Imman style with interesting chord progression and also has the flavours of Carnatic Raaga Abheri and Hindustani Raag Jog which goes off to new realms. The interludes surprisingly have the usage of electric guitar as well.



Singers:  Pradeep Vijay
Lyrics: Yugabharathi


A beautifully compelling song in Raag Aahir Bhairav arrives next with the powerful vocals of Pradeep Vijay. The song has compelling shades such as sentiment, aggression and impactful thump. The song brings the best of Raaga Aahir Bhairav in the so called philosophical aura.  Imman tries to include alien notes to this classy raga to give an eerie feel too. A very special mention should be made for the use of Saarangi in the interludes.

Unkooda Thunaiyaaaga


Singer:  Kalyani Nair
Lyrics:  Yugabharathi


A very interesting detour with a flawless solo from Kalyani Nair strikes the bull’s eye again. The unconventional 3- beat cycle rhythm is the highlight of the song. The song has an oscillating aura associated with it which makes it the most fetching aspect. The symphonic strings are quite pleasant and amazing to hear along with the Jazzy piano which makes its presence felt. The interludes are adept with Raaga Nata Bhairavi which touches great realms.


Onna Onna


Singer: D.Imman
Lyrics: Yugabharathi


An angry number with silky electric guitar and power packed drumming is sung by the composer Imman himself. The song showcases the anger and aggression quite well with the usage of trance beats as well.  It could have scored well with more experimentation.



Singers: Jithin Raj and Pooja Vaidyanath
Lyrics: Yugabharathi


Imman gets back to his strengths with another beautiful melody with a tinge of folk flavours as well. The song progresses in a conversational note and supported well with trumpets and chirpy rhythm. The string section is the real master of this track with its slow yet steady progress.  One can hear the amazing flavours of Raaga Simhendramadhyamam in terms of the tune.

Elanthaari (Reprise) 

Singers: Sniti Mishra
Lyrics: Yugabharathi

The most melodious song of the album  takes a reprise avatar with modern Jazz keys in the right timing and the innocence is brought forward with the sweet vocals of Sniti Mishra. The blues effect is quite evident with silky electric guitar in ease. The interludes are essentially contemporary with blues style guitar and live drumming fused effectively with folk flavours of Hindustani Raag Jog.

Human Ethics- Theme Music 
Solo Violin by Raghavasimhan

The grand finale occurs with a captivating instrumental track high on emotional violin and amazing chord progression. The expressive violin strikes quite well with passion and vigor. The harmonic minor scale of western classical music is perfectly put to execution in this track.

Verdict: Maveeran Kittu is an impressive album from D. Imman where he played with his strengths once again.
