One of well-made wholesome comedy film ever made in Tamil !
20 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a full length comedy movie with no frills. Hilarious dialogues (penned by the genius Crazy Mohan) and timing of dialogue delivery by S.Ve.Shekar and Pandiarajan are the highlights of this movie.Though the plot has been completely remade from a super hit Malayalam movie called Nadodikathu (thanks to the original writers for a simple yet creative plot), the screenplay of the Tamil version has been very well adapted and modified where necessary, to cater to the Tamil movie going audience. Obviously, Crazy Mohan has given the movie a midas touch by handling the dialogues - which also makes the movie distinct from its Malayalam parent. Also it makes a huge difference when very unconventional actors, especially known for their comedy timing, such as, S.Ve.Shekhar, Pandiarajan, S.S.Chandran, Kallapatti Singaram and Manorama are on the cast of the movie. Overall, a great plot, well- done, natural and un-polluted comedy movie that is so hard to be seen in Tamil movie industry now a days.
