Maatran Movie Story

Ramachandra (Sachin Khedekar) is a genetic scientist who wants to create a new revolution in science. His area of interest is baby designing and he chooses his own wife to experiment it. But things goes wrong and his wife delivers a conjoined twins with a common heart. Though Ramachandran wants to separate the twins, which will naturally lead to the death of one baby, his wife strongly opposes. Meanwhile Ramachandran’s project gets rejected and after a long struggle he sets up a baby milk powder (Energion) and it clicks…

Fast forward to the current situation: Now the twins have grown up but they opposite in nature. Akhilan (Suriya) is smart, witty and peppy while Vimalan (Suriya again) is calm, understanding and intellectual. At this point Anjali (Kajal Aggarwal) walks into their life. Both Akhilan and Vimalan develops a special liking for her but she falls for the smartness of Vimalan.After a few crucial incidents Vimalan learns (through a Russian journalist) that the milk powder which Energion produces is been adulterated with a life threatening steroid, which will start giving side effects after few years. This means it will affect India’s next generation… A twisted turn of events leads to the death of the journalist followed by Vimalan… What will happen next? Who is behind all these? Akhilan begins his search, which leads him to former USSR country… Problems gets bigger…. Watch Maattrraan to know more…

Actors Performances

With every film that he does, Suriya is getting better and better. He carries the entire film on his shoulders and he does it with ease. He has shown the difference of the conjoined twins rightly in the body mannerism and voice modulation. Post the interval, he appears in this third look and he does everything perfectly.

Kajal Aggarwal is pretty and beautiful; but she has to work more harder to get the lip sync right.

Sachin Khedekar plays a very important role in this film and he needs no introduction at all. In fact he is one of the seasoned actors that the country has ever seen.

Isha Sharvani’s dance number is above average. Tara, Suriya’s mother, the Russian journalist and the army officer have done a good job.

Technical Analysis

K.V. Anand’s association with Subha duo has once again emerged as the winner. However the second half of the film could have tweaked a little to increase the pace. Kudos to the director for his excellent research skill.

Harriis Jayaraj’s songs and background scores are ok. However it fails to create any major impact as the songs remind us of his earlier tunes.

Cinematography by Sounder Rajan is perfect and stylish while Anthony’s editing works are sleek.

The film is produced by AGS Entertainment and Eros International has acquired the distribution rights. The film is also simultaneously released in Telugu as Brothers.

Final Verdict

Maattrraan is a perfect watch for this weekend with your family

Suriya plays conjoined twins in ‘Maatran’!


The first look teaser of Suriya’s KV Anand directed Maatran produced by AGS Entertainment was unveiled on Wednesday (July 11) evening at Prasad Lab preview theatre.

Suriya’s plays conjoined twins Akilan and Vimalan in the film. Says KV Anand : “Suriya has done four films in one. He took a lot of trouble doing each shot separately as the Siamese twin’s body language was different. I read about the Thai Siamese twins in an National Geographic magazine while on a flight with director Shankar after Sivaji song shoot. An idea evolved from that to make a film on Siamese twins and when Suriya heard the story during the making of Ayan he wanted to do it.”

Anand denies that the film is inspired from any Hollywood or Thai film. There have been rumours that Maatran and Priyamani’s Charulatha on conjoined twins are similar. Anand clarified that he had seen the Thai film Alone which is being officially adapted by producers of Charulatha, and he found no similarity with Maatran.

Suriya in his speech said: “Hats off to KV Anand. His research, preparation and the way he had planned each shot was so perfect. All the crew and artist who worked on the film enjoyed every day of the shoot. It was a great learning experience.”

Maatran shoot is over except for a song. The audio of the film which has music by Harris Jayaraj will be launched in a couple of days. Anand says he will take time along with VFX supervisor Srinivas Mohan to complete the post-production graphic works of the film.
