Maattrraan is a truly world class Film. Must Watch for Suriya and Story.

Maattrraan is centered around the conjoined twins, Vimalan and Akilan. But, that is just the tip of the iceberg. The plot is much bigger than the conjoined twins as it touches upon key contemporary international issues such as Genetic Modified Food(GMF), fictional account of its genesis dating back ...(more)

If you are looking at a time pass entertainer, walk into KV Anand's Maattrraan. It is a fun ride till interval and in the second half there is a neat message told with lot of cinematic liberties.

Definitely another box office bonanza for Suriya.

Two sides of a coin, one up and one down

Maatraan is worth a watch for Suriya's acting and some great groundwork done by K.V.Anand. Harris Jeyaraj's songs look great on screen and are sure to be seen on TV frequently. The second half does a shabby job of wrapping things up, but it's still gives you an unique experience overall.(more)

Double the performance and double the fun

In Maattrraan, Anand and Subha attempt to warn us about the dangers of genetic engineering and interfering with nature, but a crisper capsule would have had a stronger effect. (more)
