4 Reasons Why You Need To Rewatch Mankatha

 Tamil Cinema follows one important rule – movies starring big heroes must release only on National Holidays or on festive days. There are times the industry makes an exception though. One such movie that didn’t abide to this unofficial rule was Venkat Prabhu’s Mankatha. A signature Prabhu is his ability to make it seem like he had a gala time working on a movie. All his films serve as a proof to this. However, when he announced about his ambitious project of working with one of Tamil cinema’s biggest names, everyone had one thing running in their minds – will his style apply for a ‘mass’ hero? In hindsight, the risk certainly paid off. Prabhu teamed up with Thala Ajith for Mankatha. A heist-thriller, Mankatha released on Aug 31, 2011 and opened to positive reviews. We tell you why this film has remained a popular flick four years since:

1. Vinayak Mahadev – Tamil Cinema’s most loved antagonist
With his cool and suave looks, salt-and-pepper hair and his brilliant dialogue delivery, Vinayak Mahadev aka Ajith Kumar, gave a distinct dimension to his character . His unique charm made us fall in love with a menacing villain.
2. Ajith Kumar
Thala Ajith broke his stereotyped image of a charming hero and decided to treat his fans to something new – by playing the role of an anti-hero. The fans lapped it up and loved every bit of the experiment. The actor was highly praised for portraying a full length negative role and choosing to do something outside his comfort zone in Tamil cinema. This role went on to become quite iconic.
3. A Plethora of Stars
The cast also boasted of some talented actors who added further depth to the story. Vaibhav Reddy, Mahat Raghavendra, Ashwin Kakamanu, Premji Amaren and others added value to the starpower. Be it Trisha’s role of a caring girlfriend  or Raai Laxmi’s role as a seductress; the women in this film did absolute justice to the characters they played. But it is action-king Arjun who received the most appreciation. His role of a powerful cop was liked my many. 
4. Memorable Dialogues

“500 crores. Ainooru Kodi. Money. Money. Money. Money.” "’It’s my f***ing game” are some of the most noteworthy dialogues in the film. Needless to say that these lines met with thunderous applause in the theatre.
5. Charbusting Music

Who better than Yuvan Shankar Raja to deliver chartbusters for Venkat Prabhu’s films? His superb background score worked wonders for the theme of the film.
