Humour doesn't need logic
25 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A film that contains no logic but an entertaining movie.

God of death Yama (Kowndamani) and his assistant (Senthil) come to earth in search of a book that got lost from their world. The books contains details of who should die , when. Without the book, Yama is not able to carryout his duty of snatching lives of humans on their due dates.

The book gets into the hand of Karthik (Gopi) who hides it as he finds that his mother's due date of death has arrived. Also he becomes rich with the help of the book that gives him clues like which lottery number will fetch him the prize and which horse will win the race...

Add to this the comedy of Senthil's encounters with police, the villain's interest's in secret behind Karthik's sudden richness........
