It is not every day that a film manages to touch the hearts and minds of millions of viewers with its powerful message and captivating performances. But that is exactly what Maamannan, the latest film by acclaimed director Mari Selvaraj, has achieved.

The film, which released on June 29, 2023, has completed 50 glorious days at the box office, and the team is celebrating the success with gratitude and joy. Maamannan, which means “kingmaker” in Tamil, is a socio-political drama that revolves around the lives of an MLA and his son, who belong to an oppressed community, and their struggle against the tyranny of a privileged, arrogant politician, who wants to crush their dignity and rights.

The film features Udhayanidhi Stalin and Vadivelu as the father-son duo, Fahadh Faasil as the antagonist, and Keerthy Suresh as the female lead. The film also marks the return of Vadivelu to the big screen after a long hiatus.

The movie has garnered praise from both critics and viewers for its authentic depiction of caste-based discrimination and violence prevalent in society. Additionally, it delivers an empowering message of resistance and justice. The film also boasts of a stellar soundtrack by AR Rahman, who has composed some soul-stirring songs that complement the mood and theme of the film.

Director Mari Selvaraj, who has previously made critically acclaimed films like Pariyerum Perumal and Karnan, has dedicated the success of Maamannan to his parents, who nurtured him with virtue and love. He shared a picture of himself with his parents on his Twitter account, and wrote in Tamil, which translates to, "Maamannan 50th day. Although it is a long life, I dedicate this tremendous success to my mother and father who nurtured me with virtue and love “I will keep looking for ears that can hear the truth”.

The film has also received appreciation from various celebrities and personalities from the film industry and beyond. Maamanan is more than just a film; it's a beacon of hope that has ignited conversations and inspired positive transformations in our society.
