Silambarasan TR's Maanaadu is the talk of the town after it took a sensational opening on its release on Thursday, with theatres set to witness a strong audience turnout during the weekend as well. The mass masala political entertainer directed by Venkat Prabhu under producer Suresh Kamatchi's V House Productions banner and featuring music by Yuvan Shankar Raja had overcome several obstacles en route to its theatrical release and is now basking in glory. That said, Suresh Kamatchi in an exclusive interview with Galatta has now revealed that the Maanaadu satellite rights have been acquired by broadcasting Tamil TV giant Vijay Television. 

Producer Suresh Kamatchi has spoken in detail about the trials and tribulations that the entire Maanaadu team had gone through till the last minute of its release, including the hurdles in securing the digital rights and other formalities. He stated that the satellite rights were picked up by Vijay TV only on the day of Maanaadu's theatrical release (November 25) after 11 a.m. Prior to the satellite rights acquisition deal, Silambarasan's parents T. Rajendar and Usha Rajendar had signed an assurance cheque and handed it over to the financier after which the release formalities had begun. The response to STR's Maanaadu has been nothing short of phenomenal, with fans showering praises on the flamboyant star, who is equally complimented on the big screen by filmmaker turned actor S.J. Suryah in a negative role.

The cat and mouse game between Simbu and S. J. Suryah and the life-altering consequences in the time-loop the two are stuck in throughout the story keeps audiences hooked to their seats till the end of Maanaadu, with director Venkat Prabhu receiving congratulatory wishes from fans and celebrities for his tightly-packaged screenplay. Despite the lack of songs in Maanaadu, Yuvan Shankar Raja has made up for it with his thunderous background score once again and the composer has elevated the film a notch by setting a fast-paced tempo till the end.
