Mankatha, released in 2011, is a Tamil-language action-thriller movie directed by Venkat Prabhu. The movie stars Ajith Kumar, Arjun Sarja, Trisha Krishnan, and others in important roles. Mankatha tells the story of a group of corrupt cops and their plan to rob a cricket betting racket. Vinayak Mahadevan (Ajith Kumar), a suspended police officer, is introduced as a corrupt cop who deals with betting and gambling. Vinayak is offered a chance to get back into the police force by Prithviraj (Arjun Sarja), an equally corrupt cop. Prithviraj wants Vinayak to lead a robbery of a cricket betting racket. The robbery is said to be worth over INR 500 crores, and Vinayak is expected to lead the team of robbers.

Vinayak gathers a team of his own, including others like his friend Ganesh (Vaibhav Reddy) and his aide Pottu (Premji Amaren). Prithviraj also assembles his own team, and the two groups begin to prepare for the heist.

The movie follows various twists and turns as the two teams go through different stages of planning and executing the heist. Meanwhile, the betting racket owner himself, Vittal Prasad (Kannada actor Anil Kapoor in a guest appearance), is seen monitoring the situation closely. There are questions of loyalty and trust among the team members, and everything is not what it seems.

The movie features a lot of action-packed moments and mind games, making it an engaging experience for viewers. With slick editing and a fast-paced storyline, the movie keeps you on the edge of your seat right till the end.

Ajith Kumar delivers a fantastic performance as the lead character Vinayak, portraying his character's nuances and complexities brilliantly. Arjun Sarja, as the rival corrupt cop Prithviraj, does an equally great job. Trisha Krishnan, who plays Sanjana, Vinayak's love interest, provides a refreshing contrast to the otherwise intense narrative.

The movie's background score, composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, is an absolute treat for music lovers. The cinematography by Sakthi Saravanan is also commendable, capturing the fast-paced action sequences with precision.

Mankatha was well-received by both critics and audiences upon its release, becoming a box office success as well. The movie's climactic sequences, in particular, have often been cited as one of the movie's high points.

Overall, Mankatha is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys an engaging action-thriller movie. The movie keeps you at the edge of your seat with its plot twists, performances, and visuals, making for an unforgettable movie-watching experience.
