Film: Mannaru; Cast: Appukutty, Thambi Ramiah and Mallika; Director: Jai Shankar; Rating: **
Here's a reality check - having two national award recipients in a film doesn't attract audiences to the theatres. Mannaru is a lethargic attempt by director Jai Shankar, who doesn't capitalise on the film's captivating storyline.
Mannaru, the protagonist, has no purpose in life and spends most of his time with his companion, alcohol. He helps his close friend Ganeshan get married to his girlfriend Anjali, secretively. However, circumstances force Ganeshan to leave his wife in Mannarus custody, who takes her to his village where they pose as a married couple.
Meanwhile, a close relative called Gopi eyes Mannarus real wife Mallika, and things start to gradually slip out of the hero's grip. What happens in the four characters' lives, forms the rest of the story.
