Debutante director N.Raghavan’s ‘Manjapai’ opened to mixed reviews last week. But the people’s verdict has been tremendously favorable.
Earlier we reported that the Vemal-Lakshmi Menon-Rajkuran starrer’s first day collection in Tamilnadu is 70% of what Superstar Rajinikanth’ ‘Kochadiiyaan’ collected. Now we have come to know from reliable trade sources that the film has already collected 8 crores in first four days.
Sources also reveal that ‘Manjapai’ has found many takers among family audience. Moreover the film has brought senior citizens in large numbers to theatres after a long time.
The credit for this must go to the director Raghavan for his relatable script with equal dosage of humour and sentiment sans vulgarity. Veteran actor Rajkiran’s perfect portrayal of an innocent and kind old man from a rural background has also contributed to the success of the film.
‘Manjapai’ has been jointly produced by ‘Thirrupathi Brothers’ and .A Sargunam Cinemaz’ and the film has been released by ‘Thirrupathi Brothers of N.Lingusamy.
