Describing how terrific #Maanagaram is in a tweet wouldn't do justice to the film. It warrants a trip to the theater to be left blown away. The writing in #Maanagaram, even while adopting a hyperlink narrative, is so seamless that you can't stop raving about how well it's handled. There's so much to be like about #Maanagaram. Lokesh makes a terrific directorial debut. I can't wait to know what he has up his sleeve. #Maanagaram is unmissable. A truly terrific urban thriller abt metropolitan dreams. Has enough laughs too. Going with 5 on 5. Must watch

#Maanagaram 1st half - Superb script, with multiple interlinked characters, set in Chennai. Gripping all the way with a well-knit screenplay. #Maanagaram Mindblowing! Can't explain the feeling in words. Bowled over by the seamless screenplay & script of Dir Lokesh MUST MUST WATCH. #Maanagaram 4/5.. Gangsterism - dark comedy - thriller - some romance - superb edits - packed screenplay. One of a kind. Best in a long time @prabhu_sr A film that you and @Potential_st can be really proud of, sir. Modern day classic! #Maanagaram - Also a grt interpretation of Chennai, as a hub of outsiders who get used to the place eventually. The 'helping' touches were How good was Muneeshkanth in #Maanagaram !Major plus point. ROFL moments all through. He's starting to rule the 'asattu comedian' zone.

#Maanagaram - Interval - Dubbing falls as an issue , 4 stories linked together finely with some interesting sequences . 'Decent' so far . #Maanagaram - A definitely watchable thriller which has few hurdles in b/w but the lifelike flow fades them away. @prabhu_sr @sundeepkishan
