Storyline

Thenali (Kamal) is a traumatized Sri Lankan Tamil, who is beset by a variety of elaborate phobias. A psychiatrist Panchabhootam (Delhi Ganesh), convinced that Thenali is impossible, refers him to rival shrink Kailash (Jayaram). The doctor takes an instant dislike to his new patient, while his wife (Devyani) and sister (Jyothika) take more of a liking to him than Kailash would like. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Bad remake of What About Bob
17 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

What started off as a mediocre US movie (what about bob) becomes a wretched Tamil one. Kamal Hasan has been a good actor in the past. Not so here. He does some good slapstick and his accent's ok, though. Still, the movie is one of the worst Tamil movies I've seen.
