Madura Veeran Review & Rating|
The movie Madura Veeran is an action entertainer written and directed by PG Muthiah. The lead role is performed by actor Vijayakanth's son Shanmuga Pandian and the female lead is played by Meenakshi. Actors Samuthirakani, Mime Gopi and Vela Ramamoorthy are featured in important character roles in the film. The music of the film is composed by Santosh Dhayanidhi and editing of the film is done by Praveen KL.
The movie is set in the backdrop of rural village and Jallikattu. And the director has done justice to the depiction of Jallikkattu in the story. Shanmuga Pandian who is doing his second movie has done a good job in delivering the character given to him.
The movie illustrates the plot discussing a folk tale of revenge with the backdrop of Jallikattu and the politics behind in it. The is filled with stunning action sequences and twists. The director/writer Muthiah was successful in bringing out the twists and emotional areas hit right at the point.
Meenakshi who played the female lead did what was required, as she had a very little scope for performance.The character played by Samuthirakani as Shanmuga's father will uplift his acting career for sure. The part he played stood as the strongest and vital section of the movie. Actors like Marimuthu, PL Thenappan, Vela Ramamoorthy have given their best performance which took the movie to another level.
The plot does have created some confusion but succeeded in engaging the audience. The movie with the commercial elements rightly has taken this small film into an entertainer with fewer flaws.
Madura Veeran Critic Reviews
Madura Veeran User Reviews
Madura Veeran’s story is more than Jallikattu and its history. I went expecting that it’s a remake of the MGR classic but was nowhere close to it. The village and character set up are good but Shanmuga Pandian as the simpleton disappoints for his character seems to have been not well written. Though it’d be unfair to compare him to his father but a point may soon come where he’ll have to prove his credentials. Meenakshi as Shanmuga’s love interest is ok but their chemistry is nothing to write home about. Madura Veeran scores on technical aspects but we’ve already had enough of Jallikattu and its banning. Watch it for the Jallikattu sequences!!!

Madura Veeran is a title inspired by MGR’s 1965 yesteryear classic by the same name which has Shanmuga Pandian, Meenakshi, Samuthirakani, Vela Ramamoorthy, Mime Gopi and G. Marimuthu in pivotal roles. Madura Veeran’s story is set in a village near Madurai which highlights the issues and politics associated with Tamil Nadu’s traditional sports Jallikattu that was in the news last year for favouring the tradition rather than the proposed ban. The plot revolves around a young villager (played by Shanmuga Pandian) who takes up the issue of banning Jallikattu and explains why the sport is so important which has come to be known as an integral traditional sport of Tamilians and why it shouldn’t be banned. Meenakshi plays the love interest of Shanmuga who supports him in his cause. Besides direction, PG Muthiah has also written and cinematographed the film while music has been composed by Santosh Dhayanidhi and Praveen KL has edited it. Viji Subramanian and PG Muthiah have produced the film under V Studios and PG Media Works, respectively.

- Highlighting of Jallikattu issue
Madura Veeran’s main plot narrates the issues on Jallikattu and the politics associated with it which favoured the tradition rather than the proposed ban. Jallikattu might as well be the key to the whole narration while it may reveal some finer points which got missed out during the protest.
