Maayandi Kudumbathar is a family film which was released in 2009. The film was a proper tearjerker which was high on emotions. The film had a stellar cast of former directors including Tarun Gopi Raj Kapoor , Ravi Maria Seeman, Singampulli , Ponvannan and the ever reliable Manivannan. It was the type of movie families would love watching from the comfort of their homes. No wonder the film was both a critical and commercial success. It’s been a while since Tamil cinema saw family films which would bring tears to the eyes. In that aspect Maayandi Kudumbathar is extraordinary. The film was directed by Rasu Madhuravan who did an extraordinary job in bringing the veteran directors together.
