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

excellent entertainment
10 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kamal,Ravikumar and crazy Mohan has done a few films.In my opinion they are all very good.Story and plot may be a copy but it was done in a very good manner that suits Tamil culture of the present days.Kamal was speaking Srilankan Tamil very well.He deliver crazy Mohan's dialogue very naturally.You can appreciate this film only if you know the language. Jayaram is very under rated actor.He is domineering equally with great Kamal.If you know the Tamil films full of sentimental values and family dramas,I can say this film is a turning point.I cannot stop laughing even after the end of movie.I like it so much and bought a DVD to watch now and again.The DVD make me to realise how much technically the Tamika films advanced.Remember because of a small market one can invest only a small sum to make a movie in Tamil.They did it very well and it become a commercial success as well. Delhi Ganesh acting as Mathrubootham has done a marvellous job.He portrayed the jealousy beautifully.
