The story of Money Ratnam goes behind Neil John Samuel who got one crore rupees unexpectedly while a late night travel. Instead of reporting it to police, he contributed the money to impress two characters - a sick girl and hero's girl friend. This negative message could easily be avoided with a simple twist.
Fahed fans are attracted to theatre with good expectation even though they are not fully satisfied. Anyway, Mani Ratnam is an average road movie with several comedy scenes to remember. Santhosh Nair manages to make it better than Megastar projects released recently.
