@ Times of India – sat oct 13

Surya2  is how credits roll for ‘Maattrraan’ (‘Brothers’ in Telugu), the fifth double role by actor after ‘Perazhagan’, ‘Vel’, ‘Vaaranam Aayiram’ and ‘7 Aum Arivu’. And thanks to him, it is double the performance and double the fun, though it would have meant enormous effort on his part to portray both the characters in a very convincing manner.

It would also have been double the work for cinematographer S Soundar Rajan and VFX supervisor V Srinivas Mohan, whose world class work is one of the highlights of the film. The live action and the graphics blend seamlessly on screen in all the scenes involving the conjoined twins. The biggest challenge for a VFX supervisor is that the special effects should not stick out like a sore thumb, and Srinivas Mohan passes the test with distinction. The fight sequence in an amusement part is one of the highlights of the film, and stunt supervisor Peter Hein and Soundar Rajan come up with some imaginative and eye-catching visuals to captive the audience.

@ Behindwoods

One of the major highlights of the film is its VFX. Helmed by Srinivas Mohan of Endhiran fame, the VFX team has worked hard and it is evident in all the frames that feature the conjoined twins. The action sequence at the roller coaster ride is the best example where all the departments like the camera, stunt, VFX and Suriya have worked in epic tandem and the result is brilliant. Editing plays a crucial role in such visual effects intensive movies and editor Antony has done complete justice to his craft. http://www.behindwoods.com/tamil-movie-reviews/reviews-2/oct-12-02/maattrraan-review.html

@ Moviecrow

The real success of visual effects in Maattrraan is when you no longer realize the complexities involved in making Suriya act as conjoined twins. The Motion Capture technology, earlier used in the Adventure of Tin Tin, is for the first time used to portray the conjoined twins. Visual Effects Supervisor Srinivasa Mohan’s (Enthiran fame) work is truly world class that not even in one scene will you be able to spot any flaw. The VFX for showing overlapping body parts, face and expressions are so minutely handled. Visual Effects is so perfectly done to the point that the critics and award committees may end up overlooking the role of visual effects department as both Suriyas look so real to life.

@ indiaglitz

Maatraan gets a lot of help from the Srinivasa Murthy’s VFX department and the way everything looks natural in the first half, even when two Suriyas are standing next to each other throughout is a tribute to their work. Soundar Rajan’s cinematography works in tandem with the effects and impresses. Meanwhile, editor Anthony gets the toughest job of editing the film that is filled with added effects and touches and despite everything, he joins bits and pieces pretty well.

@ Sify

The VFX done by Srinivas Mohan of Enthiran fame is as good as any foreign film. The action scenes of the conjoined twins in the amusement park, and the way they dance together look so real on screen. KV Anand is a director with a vision and he knows how to bring in the right mix of entertainment elements.

@ accesskollywood

Suriya packs double punch with roles – the studious Vimalan and the cheerful Akhilan. Needless to mention, Suriya is the star of the movie and he brings out the character dissimilarities as is needed to show differences in the roles. While any double role demands much from the actor, the role of a pair of conjoined twins is not only demanding but also technically challenging. Anand’s samurai in VFX Srinivas Mohan ensured that there are no slip ups in the VFX part of the movie and ensured that the visual effects remain on par with international movies.

@ indiavision

Technically, the film was way ahead of the league, especially in the visual effects department headed by Srinivas Mohan, who made the conjoined twins look as real as possible. Editing by Anthony is satisfying, while music by Harris with visuals sounds better.
