Ajith's 'Golden' gamble with Venkat that has paid off !
Mankatha strikes finally, AND in style! With an ensemble cast, there is every likelihood that at least a few would be relegated to the sidelines, but all of them are there deservedly. Ajith simply sizzles in his action shots and his cute expressions in dance sequences are a revelation. On the downsi...(more)

It's Ajith all the way!
Mankatha is boyish film. It is all racy and rivetting.The first half is light and simple. The game really begins in latter part. With Venkat Prabhu and Ajith giving their best, Mankatha rocks all time.(more)

Out and Out Ajith film.
Ajith steals the thunder and plays the emotionless bad man, to perfection. He looks smashing and his scorching screen presence is unmatchable but is let down by a dull script. Arjun lives up to his image as the ‘Action King’ and plays the cop with dignity and has a style of his own. (more)

Go watch it... Worth doing so
On the whole, first half of ‘Mankatha’ is meant for Ajith Kumar fans while the second half manages to draw the attention of universal audiences. With no big releases scheduled for next few weeks and the jet-speed promotions by Sun Pictures, the film can expect good results in box office. (more)

Mangaatha is especially for Ajith Kumar's fans and the people, who love action-oriented movies.
Excitement and Expectations are the two Es, which are associated with Ajith Kumar's 50th movie Mangaatha (Mankatha) release. As expected, Thala rocks the show with his styles, actions and performance. However, the overdose of stunts and useless characters in the film are irritating at parts. Read on...(more)

Mankatha is everything one would expect (or want?) it to be: A complete masala entertainer with doses of slickness, comedy and riveting dishoom-dishoom.(more)

Extra ordinary intro scene .... extra ordinary bgm ... extraordinary villianism by Ajith..best salt and pepper look (more)
Movie was good with good plot but many illogical scenes and over the top action scenes made it an average watch .Ajith overacting was intolerable (more)
Mankatha is worth a watch for the interesting twists towards the end and decent acting by Ajith. (more)
