60 Vayadu Maaniram Tamil Movie Review


Govindarajan (Prakash Raj), a 60-year-old man, suffers from Alzheimer’s and has been admitted to an old age home by his career driven son (Vikram Prabhu).

Govindarajan goes missing all of a sudden and his son starts searching for him with the help of a doctor (Indhuja) from the old age home.

Even as Govindarajan’s son, whose big aim in life is to the move to the United States, discovers little facets of his father’s personality while forging a friendship with the doctor, Govindarajan crosses the path with a deadly gang.

The rest is all about whether Govindarajan and his son are able to reunite and the valubale lessons of life learnt by the lead characters.


Director Radha Mohan hardly misses on emotions and he is once again at it in 60 Vayadhu Maaniram, a touching and gripping story which speaks a lot about the good and bad things in life.

Prakash Raj has literally lived the character and for Vikram Prabhu, this is certainly a comeback. Indhuja of Meyaadha Maan and Mercury fame shines bright in her role while Samuthirakani has given his best efforts.

Background score by Ilayaraja proves once again why we celebrate him as Isaignani. Vivek Anand’s cinematography and T S Jai’s editing are the other highlights of the movie.

The film is a remake of Kannada movie Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu and Radha Mohan has Tamilised it very well. With very little flaws, 60 Vayadhu Maaniram is another emotional ride from the director.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
