Maatraan is the much-anticipated movie of Suriya. It is an action thriller film, where Suriya portrays the role of conjoined twins. Its Telugu dubbed version ‘Brothers’ is also released today.

Story line

Actor Surya plays the conjoined twins – Vimalan and Akhilan. Their father (Sachin Khedekar) runs a famous company and with the help of his sustained efforts, he makes his product unique. His competitors have always been fishy about his growth and been trying to find out his secret formula of his company’s product, but all their efforts are in vain.

Meantime, Akhil and Vimal meet Anjali (Kajal Agarwal) and falls in love for her. The conjoined twins are different in their personalities. Akhilan is decent and good at studies by nature, but Vimalan is a carefree man and poor in his studies. Both have no interest in their father’s business.

Akhilan comes to know that his father is fowl playing in his business and mixes a dangerous substance to the product to boom its business. In this venture, he is killed. Anjali who was in love with Akhilan, falls for Vimalan and they are set to solve the mystery. What happens next makes the interesting part of the movie.

Performance

Surya has done the conjoined twins role perfectly. The actor has done his best to bring out a remarkable chemistry between the twins. His strong will to accept a conjoined twins role is evident on-screen. Surya shines while being mischievous with Kajal Agarwal and also when he is on the hunt to find out the truth.

Kajal Agarwal looks pretty and has some good scenes in the movie.

Sachin Khedekar and Tara have done their roles pretty well.

Cinematography by S Sounder Rajan is incredibly brilliant. He has captured the best Russian locales in his camera, which are very pleasing to our eyes. The stunt sequences are appreciable.

Harris Jayaraj has not given his best. But his background score is good. Rettai kathirae… and Kaal Mulaitha Poovae are good picks.

Director KV Anand has marvellously shot the scenes of the conjoined twins and has narrated the story brilliantly.

Final words

First half of the movie moves in a jolly mode with comedy scenes and romantic songs between the conjoined twins, second half of the movie runs in a serious mode with an impressive climax.

Overall, Maatraan is superior visually and technically with a different plot and SuryaKV Anand combo rocks. The movie has brought out the best in Surya.

    Maatran Movie Background:

    Maatran is an upcoming Tamil action film to be directed and co-written by K. V. Anand and scripted by writers Subha. It stars Suriya in the lead role, portraying five different characters, with Kajal Aggarwal playing the female lead, and music by Harris Jayaraj. The film, to be produced by Kalpathi S. Aghoram, is currently in its pre-production stage and slated for release on 12th Oct` 2012. The movie poster reveal that the movie will be a action movie and the actor looks very rough in the poster. Surya will be appearing in five different roles in Maatran.

    Story
    Kajal Agarwal is pairing opposite with Suriya in this action entertainer that is filmed on conjoined twins Akilan and Vimalan, fans of Ajith and Vijay. KV Anand has directed Maatran under AGS Entertainments produced by Kalpathi S Aghoram and the music scores by Harris Jayraj, cinematography by S Sounder Rajan and editing by Anthony among the technical crew.

    Aanaa films banner is releasing Maatran in France with French subtitles in about 14 screens for French star Reda Oumouzone, who has played one of the villains for Suriya in the movie. Interestingly Karthi has given his voice for one of the twin in the Telugu version Brothers along with Suriya.

    Public Talk
    Maatran is opened with mixed to poor reviews and viewers opine first half is a bit slow and engaging with comedy, good songs, some important episodes and seeds for second half. While second half seems logic less with a couple of scenes and songs working big time with audiences along with Suriya’s dialogues.

    The festive season has already started in Kollywood from this Friday, Oct 12 that will be followed by Dussehra from Oct 16-24. This might help Maatran in getting good collections at the box-office as there are no other big movies released. AGS Entertainments has produced this action thriller Maatran with the music scores by Harris Jayraj, cinematography by Sounder Rajan and editing by Anthony.

    Technical Aspects
    K.V. Anand’s association with Subha duo has once again emerged as the winner. However the second half of the film could have tweaked a little to increase the pace. Kudos to the director for his excellent research skill.

    Harriis Jayaraj’s songs and background scores are ok. However it fails to create any major impact as the songs remind us of his earlier tunes.

    Cinematography by Sounder Rajan is perfect and stylish while Anthony’s editing works are sleek.

    The film is produced by AGS Entertainment and Eros International has acquired the distribution rights. The film is also simultaneously released in Telugu as Brothers.

    Final Verdict
    Maatraan is a perfect watch for this weekend with your family. Get your tickets, grab the popcorn and enjoy it.

  2. Ananthi says

    ‘Sometimes the ending will be the beginning,’ says the caption of Maatraan but it has an ending in the beginning! KV Anand’s film has rare characters of conjoined twins but has a predictable story and appears like a second part of Surya’s last movie 7am Arivu directed by AR Murugadoss.
    Genetic scientist (Sachin Khedekar) does not get due credit for his research works in India but he never loses his heart. With his sustained efforts, he becomes successful in life by becoming a proud owner of an energy drink product. As the company grows, there is a lot of competition and his rivals have set their eyes on the formula of the drink, which could make an ordinary man extraordinary.
    His wife played by Tara gives birth to conjoined twins – Vimalan and Akhilan played by Surya. Akhilan and Vimalan are as different as chalk and cheese. While the former is good at studies and decent in nature, the latter is care-free man and when it comes to studies, he is very poor. Akhilan realises that there is something fishy about his father-owned company and smells a rat. This costs his life and he is killed. Anjali (Kajal Agarwal), who was in love with Akhilan, falls for Vimalan and they set to solve the mystery.
    The first half of Maatraan is good and entertaining. Director KV Anand has amazingly shot the conjoined twins portion. In the movie Charulatha, which also had the subject of conjoined twins, Priyamani’s twins portion was limited to merely 30 minutes. But in this movie, audience will get to see more than 90 minutes of Surya’s twins portions. The director has to be appreciated for showing the rarity in detail. Having said that, the second half is predictable. Though it is okay, audience will start realizing that the film has similar subject to 7am Arivu, which was Surya’s 2011 release.
    However, performance wise, Maatraan has brought out the best in Surya. It requires a strong will to take up conjoined twins role considering that a slight error could have made him a laughing stock. The actor has worked hard which is visible on-screen. The kind of energy that he has given to the characters are remarkable. Kajal Agarwal is not merely limited to arm candy role and she has good number of scenes in the movie. Sachin Khedekar and Tara are okay.
    Technically, S Sounder Rajan’s cinematography is amazingly brilliant. He has wonderfully captured the best locales of Russia in his camera and his work in stunt sequences is appreciable. Harris Jayaraj’s music is good but not best, as his tunes are not fresh. But the background score is good. ‘Rettai kathirae…’ and ‘Kaal Mulaitha Poovae’ are our picks.

  3. Surya FAN says

    We in B’lore are unfortunate as the movie is not released in Tamil due to “Cauvery Issue!” Watched the Telugu version. Movie moves in fast pace, cinematography, Surya’s performance and stunts are good. In the 2nd Half the screen play moves on predictable lines. 1st half is super & 2nd half is OK.Defenitley once worth a watch.

  4. Aruvelan Mani, USA says

    South India will definitely have something to look forward to this weekend with the release of KV Anand’s Tamil language Maatraan, also being released as a dubbed Telugu version called Brothers, starring Surya and Kajal Agarwal.

    The plot revolves around two Siamese twins- Vimalan/Vimal and Agilan/Akhil (both played by Suriya). Their father runs a huge company which manufactures one of the best energy drinks for children. His competitors attempt to capture his secret recipe by employing a Russian spy who befriends one of the twins and their common girlfriend Anjali (played by Kajal Agarwal).The Russian spy somehow gathers the secret formula of the drink with their help but is killed by some unknown men. Soon after, Vimalan also dies in an accident. Now separated from his brother, Agilan he learns that the Russian girl was not a spy and also realizes a dangerous fact about the factory run by his father. To discover the truth, he and Anjali leave for Russia. The answers to these mysteries form a part of the climax.

    Surya delivers an extraordinary performance throughout the film. He is equally at ease in action scenes and songs. Kajal Agarwal has little scope for acting, but looks gorgeous in almost all the songs. Sachin Khadekhar has done justice to his role as Surya’s father.

    On the technical front, Soundara Rajan’s cinematography is superb and so is the editing. A highlight of the film is Surya’s real life brother Karthi provides the voice of one of the Siamese twins. The music is average. The romance between Anjali and Vimalan and comedy scenes between the Siamese twins keep the audience entertained in the first half. The film takes a serious turn with lots of action scenes in the second part. The narration is excellent and the director never loses his grip either on the story or screenplay right from the beginning till the end.

    Definitely another box office bonanza for Surya.

  5. VK Sundar says

    Surya you r really amazing and story is as good as Hollywood Sci-Fi action films And charecter of akhil really rocks even I want to admire kajal agarwal performance especially Russian general (Carbo) was really good Now I think reviews are really genuine!

  6. Jyothika says

    Utter waste.. negative reviews everywhere.. movie bombed badly at both at andhra, tamilnadu and overseas

  7. Sudha, Banglore says

    hi surya this is sudha from banglore i have only the posters of your film you are so cute

  8. Nani says

    Director KV Anand has excelled, so far, in combining masala ingredients with a fairly serious plot. This time, too, he takes up a serious subject: genetic engineering and one megalomaniac’s plan to re-write human DNA and destroy countless lives in the process.

    And of course, AGS Entertainment’s Maatraan (all its variations in spelling aside) is about how the hero unravels the plot and brings justice to all. There’s also the interesting angle that it’s not just one hero but two – the much anticipated conjoined twins.

    Maatraan certainly starts off in style. The wife of scientist Ramachandran (Sachin Khedeker) delivers conjoined twins, and much against medical advice, swears to raise them both. A difficult task, as only one of them has a heart. The twins’ childhood and adolescence is shown in endearing fashion, even as their father tries his very best to succeed in the world of science, with little result.

    After a great many failures and heartbreak, however, he does establish the Energion Empire, a health drink that’s supposed to boost strength and energy among children.

    His children are now grown up: Akilan and Vimalan (Surya), startlingly alike in looks, but completely different in temperament.

    These are some of the best moments of the movie: one is mild-mannered and soft, the other is violent and checks out girls; one drinks fruit juice, the other downs vodka; one appreciates Khalil Gibran’s poetry, the other doesn’t even know who Bharathiyar is.

    Regretfully, their emotional bond and physical ties are shown in tantalisingly short strips. You’re given just a glance before the movie pushes on inexorably towards what it presents as the more important storyline.

    This begins with Energion’s success throughout India. Ramachandran is literally at the top of the world and wealth surrounds his family, but disaster strikes soon. Industrial espionage rears its ugly head, and a Russian journalist gets involved in the mix. Murder is only the next step, and the twins are embroiled in it, not to mention Vimalan’s girlfriend, Anjali (Kajal Agarwal).

    The first half is intriguing with its plot-twists, red-herrings and the barely-shown bond of the twins. But even here, the suspense is gone, because you’re shown who the culprit is.

    You expect fireworks in the second half, but this is where everything goes downhill. Despite the rich locations, magnificent sets, S Sounder Rajan’s sleek cinematography, the screenplay flounders in a morass of monotony.

    The players may be European and Anjali, in a nice departure from Tamil cinema tradition, might be a Russian interpreter, but there’s absolutely no suspense in the so-called twist; neither do events bring you to the edge of your seat.

    Every move is predictable, the songs hinder the pace and before long, you’re wondering when the movie will end.

    Surya valiantly tries to carry the movie on his capable shoulders but he gets no help, though the part of conjoined twins could have provided scope to show off his talent. Except for one scene, all he does is fight, wear designer clothes and spout platitudes. The screenplay drags him down considerably.

    Kajal Agarwal is her usual pretty self. She has more to do here than the usual roles she plays, but for all that, makes no impact except during the songs. Sachin Khedeker is impressive, while sundry characters like Ajay Rathnam are wasted.

    Harris Jeyaraj’s songs all sound like you’ve heard them before. Rettai Kadhirae and a romantic number catch your attention with their picturisation, but that’s it.

    Antony has tried his best to make the editing snappy, but doesn’t quite succeed. The SFX team has done a great job.

    Suba’s dialogues catch your attention in the first half but even then, the confrontations between the brothers lacks spice.

    It looks like the director wanted to pander to commercial tastes and an intelligent screenplay but stumbled in the middle. The confidence evident in his previous ventures is sorely lacking here, and the whole conjoined twins plot has largely been wasted. Their relationship is very loosely explored, and the movie is not centred on them. In fact, it would have served as well had they just been siblings.

    Maatraan has a great premise, great characters and actors who could have pulled off a complicated story. Sadly, the movie never capitalises on these strengths.

  9. Akhilan says

    Surya Telugu Movie Brothers – Surya back with Brothers, the dubbed version of his Tamil movie Maatran. Brothers movie revolves around a conjoined twins. Brothers Movie director KV Anand has written a script for the movie.

    Vimal and Akhil (Surya) are conjoined twins born to Sachin Khedekar, who is a founder and the owner of a company he sells the best kids energy drink in the market. Sachin’s rival sends a Russian spy to the company to know the secret formula of the drink. The spy manages to get some info with the help of Kajal and Surya, but he is killed. Meanwhile, Vimal dies in an accident and Akhil gets separated from him.

    Akhil comes to know that the Russian lady was not a spy and the energy drink which was selling in the market actually contains dangerous substances. He went for Russia with Kajal Agarwal to know the truth. What happens next you must watch in theaters. There are few romantic songs and comedy scenes between the conjoined twins in the first half. But the movie takes a serious mode in the second half and the climax is superb.

  10. Suresh says

    Maattran is a much hyped and much awaited movie of 2012. The movie stars Surya, portraying conjoined twins along with Kajal Agarwal in lead roles. Movie opens with eratta kadhire song showing the growth of conjointed twins thorugh different stages. Their father, Sachin Khedekar, a lacto company owner is the numero uno is his field. He is been chased by competitors for the successful trade secrets but in vain. Meanwhile, akhilan and vimalan meets anjali (kajal) and falls for her. Both are not interested in their father’s business and at some point knows about the unethical dirty tricks played by sachin khedekhar to boom his business. An incident results in surgical seperation of the twins and how they track down the truth behind the success formula of their company forms the rest of story.

    Its a Surya show form the word go and the chemistry between the twins is remarkable. The effort he put in to play the conjoined twins in evident. 1st half is enjoyable with their mischievous activities and their association with kajal. Second half focuses on Surya’s hunt for the truth and is more picturised in Russia Cinematography is excellent and Harris didn’t dissapoint with bgm and songs. Nani koni song is visually stunning. KV Anand scored in direction but should have taken more care in screenplay and the second half is long and dragging at times. Fight scene in the theme park having both Surya is clinical but a bit lengthy.

    Surya, kajal Agarwal, cinematography, Nani Koni song locations, conjoined twin scenes, first half, songs, and editing are the positives of the movie. Long running time, Sachin Khedekar, screenplay, climax and scenes in Russia are the negatives.

    Maatraan is visually and technically superior with a nice plot. Average screenplay in the second half spoiled the effort.

  11. SSJ 02 says

    After the smash hit Ayan, Surya and director KV Anand have joined hands for Maatraan. Further, this film is about conjoined twins. These factors among others have upped the expectation levels. Let’s check out how the film has fared and if it lives up to the expectations of the movie buffs.

    Indian scientist, Ramachandran, is upset that the government doesn’t recognize his inventions and hence concentrates on dangerous experiments. His experiment leads him to invent a milk powder which is on par with mother’s milk. Realizing that it is a very dangerous performance enhancing drug, a foreign lady struggles to let the world know about it. She is aided by a few people who spy on the scientist. Ramachandran kills everyone who is hindering his progress and the lady reveals all this to his son, Vimalan, who is one of the conjoined twins. The very next day, the lady is also killed under mysterious circumstances. In this situation, Akhilan and Vimalan are caught up in a fight with some antisocial elements and Vimalan is grievously injured in the melee. What happens to Vimalan and how Ramachandran’s true colors are brought out forms the rest of the story.

    Surya has proved that he is a versatile actor in a role which has him as a conjoined twin. One of the twins, Akhilan, is a flamboyant young man and Surya should be lauded for doing this role perfectly well. In scenes where he helps his brother build his love life, the way he emotes on seeing his conjoined twin, Vimalan’s condition and the anger he exudes when he comes to know that his father is behind it, is simply superb. Kajal has done what is required of her. Music and cinematography are ok.

    One wonders what happened to director KV Anand. He seems to be confused right from the start as he is not able to decide if should concentrate on the conjoined twins aspect, or performance enhancing drugs, or the impact that the energy powder would have on the future generation. This also confuses the audiences! The first half goes on swiftly while the director seems to have wavered in the second half. There are just too many illogical scenes and some scenes are way too predictable.

    Apart from Surya’s excellent acting, Harris Jayaraj’s music, Soundararajan’s camera work, and graphics are the saving grace of Maatraan. The screenplay could have been taut but filmmaker seems to have concentrated only on making this film technically slick.

  12. Anandi says

    Surya has delivered a wonderful performance. Surya diffinitely get the award for this film acting as a conjoined twins He looks stunning in action and dance. He has shown perfect comedy timing in the first half. Kajal surely rocks you in the song sequences. Sachin Khedekar, Vivek and others have done brilliant acting.

  13. Rajan says

    KV Anand’s story and direction is wonderful. Harris Jayraj’s music is main attraction. His background score and tunes are good to listen. Sounda Rajan’s picturiasation is another highlight. Peter Hein choreographed action is also main attraction. Anthony’s editing and Rajeevan’s art direction are also good.

  14. Anandh says

    Maatraan brings together Surya and KV Anand once again after the success of their first film together, Ayan and has managed to get a personality for the title even before the release. For the first time in Tamil cinema, the hero is not just portrayed in a double role, but as conjoint twins who are inseparable from each other physically. It is an interesting attempt to make a unique form of cinema. As always, there’s good news and there’s bad news.

    Director KV Anand has given us Maatraan in two parts, the one we get to see in the first half and the rest that follows. As the film starts off, the team’s effort in making two Suryas appear together pays off and you don’t feel like the shot has been made twice for each character. The dialogues are catchy many a times and do a good job differentiating the twins. The Theeye Theeye song and the fight sequence towards the end of the first half signify the tremendous effort taken in making things enjoyable throughout the first half.

    Surya has always been a solid actor for a while and he proves himself again with not one, but two roles in Maatraan. His efforts in making both his characters very different make things very interesting. Both the characters of Vimal and Akilan have totally different speech slangs, dialogues, body language and features and to play their roles alternatively scene after scene would have been very hard work indeed. His performance in the emotional scenes connects with the audience on a large scale, even as the movie is filled with action. But Surya makes it look very natural and outgoing and deserves a lot of plaudits.

    Kajal Agarwal and Sachin Khedekar, mostly cover the rest of the sequences of the film, and both take a step back and let Surya do his thing. They both continue to be a part of the plot up until the end of the movie and the director makes sure they aren’t part of a puzzle that don’t fit. Maybe a bit more detailing on their background would have made things better.

    Maatraan gets a lot of help from the Srinivasa Murthy’s VFX department and the way everything looks natural in the first half, even when two Suryas are standing next to each other throughout is a tribute to their work. Soundar Rajan’s cinematography works in tandem with the effects and impresses. Meanwhile, editor Anthony gets the toughest job of editing the film that is filled with added effects and touches and despite everything, he joins bits and pieces pretty well.

    The action sequence shot at MGM in particular deserve a huge mention, as the twins wriggle and fight together giving you a lot of reasons to hold your breath. Peter Hein does a really good job of coordinating twin fighters, and tones down the fighting to a level that’s believable and also exciting.

    Harris Jeyaraj’s songs from the movie have already become popular before the release and will only get more momentum with time. The Naani Koni song in particular looks gorgeous on the big screen thanks to the exotic locations chosen by KV Anand. His background score in the first half, including Rettai Kadhire which gives the intro to the film are nice touches to the demands of the audience.

    As much as the first half of the movie raises your expectations, the latter lacks enough suspense to make the audience get excited. The end of the first half reveals most of the aspects of the movie half and once you have caught on to what’s going on, the climax just seems inevitable. A few logical flaws here and there appear more prominent than one would like, and changes the impression got by the viewers in the better parts of the film. Summing it up, Maatraan is worth a watch for Surya’s acting and some great groundwork done by KV 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.

  15. Madhan says

    I don’t think this movie warrants a review of 3.5/5. It is too much for a film which exposes the plot very early in the movie. I was expecting some kind of twist and turn which will make the movie interesting but it never happened. Surya’s acting doesn’t warrant a commendation, it looks like he slept after 7am arivu and woke up right at Maattraan. No change at all !

  16. deepak ratnam says

    Second half could have been better and someboday else than harris could have scored music for the movie. Overall movie is excellent with good story.

  17. Rajesh ratnam says

    Mr KV.Anand come up with some original idea. As the movie is released, you cannot still claim that its your script. Its better to accept the truth by saying, I took the inspiration from the original movie and modified for Tamil audiences.

    Finally the movie is below average. Surya fans will like it like any other heroes fans.

  18. BGM HJ says

    Maattrraan With Out Logic Superb Movie … !!

  19. kv says

    movie is very good with brillant execution… kv ananad proved his best…surya2 extraordinary performance….2nd half had an brilliant screenplay..but some general common audience wont understand .

  20. sundrapandian says

    riends dont waste your money by watching tis movie,worst film of the decade.
    both 1st & 2nd half waste.it is episode of varanam ayiram and 7am arivu.
    sundrapandian is much better

  21. Chinmayi says

    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. Surya holds the film together as the script tends to waver towards the climax.

    Technically the film is outstanding with top of the range special effects and graphics, realistically portrayed action scenes, breath-taking camera work, fast-cut editing and great chemistry between the lead actors.

    Ramachandran (Sachin Khedekar) is a genetic scientist who is a genius but the government does not give him his due respect. His wife delivers conjoined twins Akilan and Vimalan (Surya in dual role). After the birth of his children, Ramachandran’s life changes for the better and soon he becomes a multimillionaire as his energy drink –Energion, a memory booster becomes popular and he sets up huge plants to manufacture it. Meanwhile the Siamese twins grow up into young men. Though they are stuck together, they are as different as chalk and cheese.

    Akilan is a cool, chilled out guy who celebrates life and lives it up while Vimalan is the shy introvert who believes in socialism. Around this time foreign companies try to steal Energion formula which is closely guarded. A Russian woman with help of a beautiful interpreter Anjali (Kajal Agarwal) tries to trap the twins, which leads to a dangerous situation that gets out of control.

    The VFX done by Srinivas Mohan of Enthiran fame is as good as any foreign film. The action scenes of the conjoined twins in the amusement park, and the way they dance together look so real on screen. KV Anand is a director with a vision and he knows how to bring in the right mix of entertainment elements.

    However, Anand and his writers Subha could have made the script tighter towards the climax. Soundar Rajan’s camera especially the Norway song and scenes shot in Russia are fantastic, Antony’s editing is fast paced. Harris Jayaraj has come out with some peppy numbers.

    The best scenes in the film are those involving the conjoined twins. The theatre scene where Akilan is trying to help Vimalan kiss and woo Anjali, brings the house down. On the downside the film is like the proverbial curator’s egg, good in parts. The first half is terrific, while post interval, it lacks conviction and climax is too long. At 2 hours and 47 minutes it could have done with some trimming.

    And at the end if you come away smiling, it’s only because of Surya’s superb performance in a difficult double role. The best scenes are those involving him in the first half as the twins have a ball bickering and bonding. As the calm and cool Vimalan and the hyperkinetic Akilan , he carries the show.

    Kajal Agarwal has a sheepish grin throughout the film and to a certain extent her character is bettered thanks to Chinmayi’s dubbing. Sachin Khedekar has done his role which has shades of grey in a convincing manner.

  22. Kudos says

    Just watched the Telugu version “Brothers” in B’lore as we are unfortunate the Tamil version is not released due to “Cauvery Issue!!” Its Surya All the way!!
    Kudos for the Hardwork. 1st half is excellent while 2nd half is predictable. Stunts, CGs and Cinematography are outstanding. Worth a watch with Family!
