Director: Ezhil

Cast: Udhayanidhi Stalin, Regina Cassandra, Srushti Dange, Soori

 

Director Ezhil to some extent is the past master of churning out comedy capers, featuring a big comedian and several small-timers. In his latest film where he had teamed up with Udhayanidhi Stalin and which is composed of several humorists that walk in and walk out of every scene, his opting for a hackneyed commercial potboiler and lackluster writing makes it enjoyable only in parts.

Saravanan (Udhayanidhi Stalin) is a carefree youth who has no job and spends his time in the company of his local friends. His uncle Kalyanam (Soori) is keen to become head of a national political party in his area and works towards that. A goof-up by a local photographer means that the plum position falls on the lap of Saravanan and his uncle is packed to Dubai for a job by the latter.  

 

Now enters the heroine of the movie Thaenmozhi (Regina Cassandra), a childhood friend who has often been at loggerheads with him. Saravanan instantly fall for the grownup Thenu, but the latter is least interested. She also turns down his proposal of marrying her.

Meanwhile, the story takes a ghost angle for good. This ghost is none other than Saravanan’s college mate Fathima (Srushti Dange) who dies in an accident. Unlike other ghosts who return to take revenge, Fathima is here to help Saravanan, with whom she had a one-sided love.

Udhayanidhi who has already proved his mettle in comedy movies does his job with ease. Regina looks glamorous and Srushti has a blink-n-miss role although her character is a vital one. Touted to be a big draw, Soori’s one-liners do not work. Yogi Babu to some extent brings few laughs. Tedium sets in when umpteen numbers of comedians like Chaams, Robo Shankar, Ravi Mariya, Manobala, Mansoor Ali Khan and Lakshmanan appear in every alternate scene mouthing loud dialogues. Imman’s songs are okay while his BGM is strictly functional.
