Talented director Shankar's much awaited 'I'( Ai,Manoharudu) movie starring Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead roles has been released in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh today January 14 and the movie has received huge positive response from Telugu audience as well.

Cast: Vikram, Amy Jackson, Suresh Gopi, Santhanam, Upen Patel

Director: Shankar

Producer: V Ravichandran


'I'(Manoharudu) movie is a science-fiction thriller which revolves around the Lingesan (Vikram) and Amy Jackson (Diya). Lingesan aspires to a be a body builder, Mr India. Lingesan falls in love with Diya, a model by profession. Ligesan later gives up his dream of becoming Mr India for his lady love who aspires to be an international model.

Lingesan undegoes a makeover and becomes Lee to impress his lady love and both take part in an modelling event in China. At the same time Diya is being tortured by her ex-lover (Upen Patel).

For an advertisement shoot she enacts that she is in love with Lee but her true love is for our hero Vikram. What happens to the true love of Lingesan? Will Diya also fall in love with Lee?
And most important of all why Vikram has a hunchback character in the movie? Does this mean a part of the story is set in pre-historic time? Only time will tell.

Read to know the live audience review has to watch lies in the movie and what to watch out for.

Cast Performance

Vikram's five different looks in the movie is a treat to watch out for. His new pairing with Amy Jackson is the biggest attraction in the movie. 'I' will definitely be an award wining movie for Vikram's acting prowess and his divine dedication to the different roles he will be essaying in the movie. The hunchback character will definitely bring tears in your eyes.

Santhanam as given complete justice to the gym trainer role that he plays. Suresh Gopi and Upen Patel are also upto the mark but could have done a better job.

Technical Aspects

Shankar's mind blowing script and direction is what stands out in the movie and will make it a big hit. PC Sreeram's cinematography and AR Rahman's chart busting music has already made the fans go gaga. Music and the cinematography of the movie goes hand-in-hand which will be a major attarction for all the movie-goers. Songs Pookkalae Sattru Oyivedungal, Mersalaayitten and Ennodu Nee Irundhaal has been shot in a extremely lavish manner ensuring an enthralling experience for the viewers.


'I'(Manoharudu) Ai is definitely a must watch. Watch this Indian movie for the outstanding perfornace of Vikram and the international standards of film making displayed by Shankar .

Surendhar MK@mKsuresh

#I will be remembered as a film where #Vikram proved himself as a stupefying method actor on par with Kamal Haasan in Indian cinema. PERIOD.
#Vikram's gut-wrenching performance breaks your heart and shivers your soul performance.

Just because you spend over two years in the making of a film doesn't mean the output will be epic. The film in reference is #I
#I only Shankar can take a wafer thin story and turn it into something so beautiful yet complex. You will love and hate the film
#I Vikram owns the movie and nobody could've done justice to his role. But Shankar's attempt to produce a world class film goes down drain
#I you realize the absence of writer Sujatha and the wonderful stories he wrote for Shankar.
