The film is all about Raj Kiran. Vemal and Lakshmi Menon barely make an impression. Their performances are ordinary and they share absolutely no on-screen chemistry.
The film also has no support from the technical team. The music by N R Raghunanthan and cinematography by Masani do little to engage the audience.
The film suffers from a lack of pace right from the beginning to the long-drawn-out tragic climax, which comes as a total disappointment.
Manjapai, with its cliched plot, has absolutely nothing new to offer.
