Ace filmmaker Venkat Prabhu replied to a video shared by his brother Premgi Amaren in his official twitter handle which shows a fan criticizing “Maanaadu” film for its repetitive scenes. The fan says that the film gave him headache and it is the worst film of year 2021, according to him. Premgi shared the video by adding laughing emojis to it and tagged Venkat Prabhu. Replying to the tweet, VP said that all kind of criticisms should be taken in right spirit and added that the focus should be on making films in future that is understandable and likable to that particular person also.
Maanaadu released on 25th of November in theatres with huge expectations among fans. The film became the first one to release under the “time loop” genre and became a massive success in the box office. Plot of “Maanaadu” revolves around Abdul Khaliq (played by Simbu) getting stuck within a day and realizing that he has a purpose of exposing the corrupted policemen and politicians who are using religion for their personal profit.
On seeing Policeman Dhanush kodi causing a religious riot to kill the chief minister and putting the blame on an individual who belongs to Muslim community to right off the murder, Abdul Khaliq finds a way to expose him and the politician whom he gets orders from to Chief minister before dies. In the process, Khaliq dies several times to restart the day to execute his new plans as a result which the makers were forced to repeat scenes in order to make the Tamil audience understand about “Time loop”
The film became a huge success among the mainstream audience as Prabhu made the complicated plot with a screenplay that is as simple as possible in order make even the “C” centre audience to enjoy. However, the film didn’t work for a fan who says that he hates the film so much for its repetitive scenes.
When the fan was asked what film he hates the most that got released in 2021, e answers “Maanaadu”. “On seeing the repeated scenes, we get headache. There was no story, noting in that film. I lost interest after they repeated the actions so many times. No one said that it was a “time loop” film as well. I came out of the theatre in midway due to the headache” the fan says in the video shared by Premgi.
