Manithan is the Tamil remake of the Hindi film Jolly LLB which starred Arshad Warsi, Boman Irani, Saurabh Shukla and Amrita Rao in lead roles.

Manithan is a somewhat serious courtroom drama which questions the legal system, the rampant corruption and the ability of the rich to control the lives of the poor.

Trying to earn their respect, he desperately tries to snag a case and win. During this time, he runs into Adiseshan (Prakash Raj) who is an unbeatable Supreme Court lawyer. Sakthi watches Adiseshan win a hit-and-run case with ease and tells him he learnt so much from him. ...Read full review
