Deva is an illiterate village bumpkin who is naive and is devoted to his family while Selva is a college student. The father develops a sudden hatred towards Deva which leads him to hatch a plot to get rid of him - the reason is the suspense in the climax. This time the baddies are the cousins of Deva who fight over property.

Reception[edit]

Indiaglitz wrote "Debutant director Bharathi has tried to come out with a movie on father-son relationship, targetting the family audience. When fast-paced scripts are the order of the day in Tamil filmdom, the narration seems slow in Manasthan."[2] BBthots wrote "Uninspired is the word that comes to mind when watching Maanasthan, Sarathkumar's latest outing. For the most part, the director shows no inclination to surprise the viewer with any developments that have not been seen in other movies. Everything about the movie, from Sarathkumar's too-good-to-be-true character to the big twist midway, is so familiar that the entire first half can be predicted after seeing the first couple of reels. Thankfully, the second half throws up a few surprises, saving the movie from being completely redundant."[3] Sify wrote "Manasthan is as stale as day before yesterday?s sambarand can be avoided."[4]
