Manithan surpassed Nayagan collection at all centers
(Thursday, 23rd October 2008)
Manithan was produced by AVM and directed by S.P.Muthuraman. It was released on 21.10.1987 (Deepavali).



At chennai, it was released in 6 theaters and they are Woodlands, Annai Abirami, AVM Rajeswari, Noorjahan, (4 shows), Maharani, Sri Brinda (3 shows).

The following films released together with Manithan :

Nayagan – Kamal – Manirathnam
Uzhavan Magan – Vijayakanth – Arvindaraj
Sattam Oru Vilayattu – Vijayakanth – SA Chandrasekhar
Ivargal Varungala Thoongal – Prabu – Thakkali Srinivasan
Neram Nallairuku – Ramarajan – Manojkumar
Chellakutti – Sarathbabu – K. Natraj
Iniya Uravu Poothathu – Suresh – Sridhar
Pookal Vidum thoothu – Harish – Sridharrajan
Manathil Urudhi Vendum – Suhasini – K. Balachander 
Puyal Padum Pattu – Murali - Manivannan

1987 was a golden year for our superstar Rajini. In that year, he acted in three films and they are Velaikaran, Oorkavalan and Manithan. All the films managed to surpass more than 100 days. Out of these films, Manithan did extraordinary business and it is one of the biggest super hit movies in our Superstars Carrier. 

At that time, Nayagan created waves and the movie was one of the biggest break for Kamalhassan.  Nayagan received very good support from the public, media and film industry. For Manithan, it faced some negative comments and Kamal fans criticized the film as a Diwali cracker inside the movie.  Inspite of all the criticism, the film did extra-ordinary business and surpassed Nayagan collection in all centers. 

The Opening was terrific and all the theaters were Houseful nearly a week.  Manithan was released in 6 theaters in the Chennai city and this was the first movie which crossed more than 50 days in 6 theaters in Chennai city.  It was a Record at that time. 

Manithan succefully completed more than 100 days at the following theaters :
Chennai - Woodlands - 100 days
Chennai - Annai Abirami - 100 days
Chennai - Maharani - 100 days
Chennai - AVM Rajeswari - 100 days
Madurai – Central – 147 days
Kovai – Ragam - 100 days
Trichy – Prabath – 100 days
Tanjore - Raja – 100 days
Vellore – Apsara – 100 days

Manithan was shifted from Annai Abirami to Bala Abirami and completed 175 days with normal shows.



AVM celebrate the Silver Jubilee function in a grand manner by promoting eye donation awareness.  They invited Dr. Badrinath as a chief guest for this function.  There were thundering and overwhelming responses from Rajini fans once Rajini agreed to donate his eyes.  Dr. Badrinath thrilled and excited because he got sufficient applications for eye donation due to Rajini's participation. He was so happy to see such a crowd for the function and he thanked  Rajini and AVM for this social activity.

During the pre-release of Baba in 2002, Indian Express published an exclusive article about our Rajini titled as SUPER STAR OR A CULT FIGURE.  In that article, they mentioned that Nayagan had  overwhelming response however Manithan managed to surpass Nayagan collection and became Super hit. All this can happen due to Rajini's power.
AVM Saravanan Experiences about the Film Manithan :

They had a plan to produce the movie based on one of the famous writer novel.  During the discussion, Saravanan clarified to the writer stating that screenplay will be done by Panju Arunachalam and they will display his name under the STORY AND DIALOGUES.  But the writer did not accept the deal hence AVM decided to produce Director Guganathan’s story.  The base of the story titled as AMAVASAIL PIRANTHAVAN THIRUDAN.

They changed the title to MANITHAN.  But distributors felt sentimentally that this title will not suit to Rajini’s image and moreover one of the old movie which already released on this title and failed miserably.  But Saravanan clearly convinced the distributors by informing that it will be appropriate name as it reflects real Rajini who posses good attitude and great human being.
   
One of the Major Plus point in the movie was Chandra Bose Music.  Kalai Kalai and Vanatha Parthen were became instant hits and audio sales was terrific during that time.  Due to footage problem, they were not able to include the song MANITHAN MANITHAN.  Lyric writer Vairamuthu was disappointed after hearing this news. 
One day, Rajini was taking bath in AVM studio and he heard "Manithan Manithan" song playing in AVM office. After his bath, he clarified about this song and they mentioned that the song was from Manithan and due to some reasons they were not able to shot the song and just added as 6th song in audio cassette.  Rajini immediately called SPM and requested him to include this song as a title song. Rajini gave few more days call sheet to shoot this song. The song was hit after the film was relaesed.

I went for Manithan FDFS show at Cudalore. Fans whistled, threw flowers and coins when Rajini's leg was shown for Rajini introduction scene at jail. But Senthil will be there. Fans shouted and blasted. After that Thalaivar will enter and galatta began again. Nice flashback!

At Mayiladuthurai, Manithan was screened at Palace theater and it ran about 45 days. Manithan was shifted to Krishna Palace to give way for Kamal's Pesum Padam. However, Pesum Padam was removed within 6 days from palace theater. Palace theater received Manithan 25 weeks shield and it is still placed at showcase. Nayagan was screened at Vijaya Theater and it was removed on 31st day.

ஷரவண் இந்த விஷயத்தை நான் ஷாஜகானிடம் சொன்னேன். முத்ல் இரண்டு வாரங்கள் வசூல் படி நாயகன், உழவன் மகன், மனிதன், பின்ன்ர் வசூலில் விஸ்வருபம் காட்டியது நம் படம். அடுத்தடுத்த வாரங்களீல் மனிதன் வசூல் அததனை படங்களீன் வசூலை ஒரங்கட்டி மனிதன், உழ்வன் மகன், நாயகன் என்று வினியெகஸ்தர்கள் வரிசைபடுத்தினர்.

நன்றாக ஞாபகம் இருக்கிறது, முதல் 10 நாட்கள் மதுரையில் கமல் ரசிகர்கள் இப்படி போஸ்டர் ஒட்டினார்கள்.. "மனிதா மனிதா.. சிங்கத்தை வெல்வதென்ன எளிதா எளிதா..", 20 நாட்களுக்கு பக்கத்திலிருந்து போஸ்டர் யுத்தம் ஆரம்பமாயிற்று.. அது ஒரு பொற்க்காலம்..
