Manikandan’s latest outing Lover, directed by Prabhuram Vyas, has undoubtedly received immense love from the audience. The film, which hit the big screens on February 9, opened to positive reception from fans and critics who praised the film’s screenplay and impressive performances by lead actors Manikandan and Sri Gouri Priya. The film, which collected over Rs 1 crore on its opening day, has minted approximately Rs 2.96 crore during the weekend, as per latest reports. The movie had 29.7% Tamil occupancy rate and is expected to cash in on this Valentine’s Week as well.  

The film clashed with films such as Aishwarya Rajinikanth directorial Lal Salaam, Ravi Teja-starrer Eagle and Tovino Thomas-starrer Anweshippin Kandethum but was able to perform better than these big releases. Despite being a small-budget film, the Manikandan-starrer managed to capture the audiences’ hearts through its realistic storyline.

How they navigate these obstacles and will they be able to resolve their issues forms the crux of the story. Saravanan, Geetha Kailasam, Harish Kumar, Nikhila Shankar, Rini, Pintu Pandu, and Arunachaleshwaran play supporting roles, while Kanna Ravi also plays a pivotal role in the film. The technical crew consists of Shreyaas Krishna as the cinematographer and Sean Roldan as the music director. Barath Vikraman is the editor of Lover.
