M. Kumaran son of Mahalakshmi (2004) is a Tamil film directed by M. Raja. It is a remake of the telugu film Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi. The film stars Jayam Ravi, Asin Thottumkal, Vivek, Prakash Raj, Nadhiya, Subbaraju and Janagaraj. The film's score and soundtrack are composed by Srikanth Deva.
The film grossed $4 million at the box office.
It introduces Asin Thottumkal as a Kollywood heroine (although technically her first Tamil production was Ullam Ketkume, which she filmed before M. Kumaran. Ullam Ketkume's release was delayed as a result of a dispute amongst the producers of that movie).
The second half the film is set in Malaysia.
One of the blockbusters of 2004.
Remake of Telugu blockbuster Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi. This film marks the second time the M. Raja-Jeyam Ravi duo combined to remake a hit Telugu film.
The Janagaraj comedy track was a tribute to his role in Apoorva Sagodharargal.
