Storyline

Thenali (Kamal) is a traumatized Sri Lankan Tamil, who has is beset by a variety of elaborate phobias. A psychiatrist Panchabutam (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. Interesting Sri Lankan accent, though mostly wasted on an overdone film. Kamal overacts. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Poorly done version of What about Bob
30 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

God, just because Kamal i left this movie. What he has proved in this movie is how good he can copy a western movie and badly make it. I am totally disappointed. I know Tamil Cinema sometimes live on borrowed story lines but to copy a good movie and remake it badly is really a sin.

There is nothing much to say about the acting, if Kamal feels talking Srilankan Tamil is a new way of acting (thats the only thing i found amusing) then he should forget expecting niceties from movie buffs. Performance wise i didn't see any great performance in this movie. All mediocre.

I hope Bill Murray doesn't see this movie, he might kill himself.
