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. On Sunday, Galatta YouTube channel presented an award to Venkat Prabhu to recognize his work screenplay work in “Maanaadu”. Replying to the YouTube channel firm, the filmmaker expressed his gratitude.

One of the Twitter users who saw the tweet of VP, replied to him saying “Good job at copying and adapting this screenplay !!” by attaching the YouTube link of “A Day movie”

In a way if shutting down the fan and others who have similar thoughts about his film, Venkat Prabhu replied back writing “Wow thanks bro!! Guess u still haven’t watched the movies we mentioned in #maanaadu”

VP, indeed is mentioning about the names of the films uttered by character Khaliq in the film. Another user said “I guess it’s just best screen play award and not best original screenplay award . So u r off the hook 🪝. Btw I liked maanaadu. Best big commercial Tamil movie in a long time”

“So it’s hard to make a new genre film here!! As we never categorise movies by its genres here!! We call them adapted or inspired or copied!🤷🏽‍♂️” The filmmaker replied back.
