Mounam Sammadham (English: Silence is Acceptance) is a 1990 Tamil language legal thriller film directed by K. Madhu. The music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja.[2] This is Mammooty's first Tamil movie.

Plot[edit]

The plot revolves around the wrong conviction of a business man and the efforts taken by the protagonist, a lawyer, to find the truth. The portrayal of the characters is similar in many ways to Malayalam cinema's investigative thrillers. The suspense is well maintained until the climax with little clue to the audience on the identity of the real culprit. The arguments in court were mostly inspired from 12 Angry Men (1957)[citation needed].

Cast[edit]

Soundtrack[edit]

The music by Ilaiyaraaja is melodious and ear-catching. The background music is smooth and supplements to the scenes. The lyrics written by Pulamaipithan and Gangai Amaran. The evergreen duet 'Kalyana Thaen Nilaa', which is noted for its beautiful scene, is still a mega chartbuster among fans.

Reception[edit]

The screenplay and direction have helped in the persuasive portrayal of S. N. Swamy's interesting story. This movie was recommended for fans of the Indian investigative thriller genre.

Box office[edit]

The film was super hit at Tamil Nadu box office.[3]
