Thanks to a script stolen from assistant director Udayabhanu, Rajappan Thengummoodu becomes superstar Saroj Kumar overnight. Udayan is left heart-broken but fate comes in the form of Babykuttan who wants to produce a movie with Udayan in the director's seat. And when Superstar Saroj Kumar starts working in the film, things looked to be in the right track. But when the project nears completion, Saroj walks out from the project due to an ego clash with Udayan. Now Udayan must shoot the rest of the movie without the knowledge of Saroj leading the movie to an exciting climax. Written by Invisible Man

Excellent Entertainer
30 January 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Udayananu Tharam is the best entertainer to come out in Malayalam in the past few years. Mohanlal underplays himself to bring out an excellent performance as a struggling assistant director Udayabhanu. Sreenivasan and Jagathy mainly contribute to the comic aspects of the movie. Sreenivasan, who wrote the script, hasn't spared any leading actor in the industry without being made fun of. Of course Sreeni is well-known for his satire type screenplays which he usually comes-up with. But this time the treatment itself is quite different. Debutant director Roshan Andrews will be making it big in the industry for sure.

All in all, an excellent clean entertainer with no third rate comedy and adult oriented jokes.
