Storyline

Ayyampettai Arivudainambi Kaliyaperumal Chandran is a hip graduate who gets a job through his family doctor. The employer, Sri Ramachandramurthy has some frivolous notions about character, moustache, patriotism, thrift, recreation, etc. Chandran changes himself as a Nehru-jacket wearing, boring person, with no interests other than studies. His plan goes for a toss when he lies about his (dead) mother's accident to watch a football match. Unknown to him, his boss finds him having a fiesta in the stadium. To avoid losing his job, he creates a fictional wild and westernized twin Ayyampettai Arivudainambi Kaliyaperumal Indran by removing his moustache on the advice of his actor friend Nagesh and becomes the music teacher for his equally wild daughter. Confusion and complications ensue when he has to recruit a small-time actress as his mother, and a kid who knows the proceedings starts blackmailing him. Written by manojar

Classic Tamil Comedy
18 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie Thillu Mullu.And then I saw the movie GolMal.I am not going to compare the two as I believe the audience for both the movies are largely mutually exclusive.

The movie is a real laugh riot.Rajini Kanth,to all the non-discerning,is nothing but histrionics.If you thought so this movie is an eyeopener.Classic comic lines delivered effortlessly,rib tickling expressions and crazy acting by the supporting actors(Thengai Sreenivasan and Showkar Janaki)combine to give a real good remake of the original GolMal.

The jokes are all clean(refreshingly so) and though it remains slapstick to some extent,it does not rely on double entendres or risqué situations to evoke the mirth.The music by MSV is awesome again.Showkar Janaki,who is the epitome of tragedy,is surprising in her new avatar.Watch out for the scenes between Thengai Sreenivasan and Showkar Janaki.

A definite recommend for any lazy evening with some murukkus,bondas or filter coffee to munch on.Scores 1354..Out of 10!!!!
