Storyline

Bomman (Vikram Prabhu) a mahout and his pet elephant Manickam make a living out of performing in temples and film shootings. He is assisted by his uncle (Thambi Ramaiah) a drunkard and wastrel. Due to certain circumstances, they find themselves in a remote village protecting the villagers from a wild heard of elephants. Bomman knows that Manickam is not a trained Kumki elephant who can take on or stop the attack of the wild elephants. However he does not care as by then he has fallen madly in love with the village chieftain's daughter Alli (Lakshmi Menon). Meanwhile the villagers treat him like their saviour, as the wait begins for the wild elephant on rampage. Written by Karthik

Visual Treat
14 December 2012 | by (Chennai) – See all my reviews

Kumki makes you go speechless with its amazing cinematography. It was a spectacular visual treat, the movie is a colorful poem. Directior Prabhu Solomon knows the pulse of the audience and Kumki is yet another feather to his cap. The movie has Thambi Ramaiah making you laugh almost in every scene he is seen.

The lead pair Vikram prabhu and Lakshmi menon have portrayed pleasantly. Its been a longtime since a movie on Elephant and Human friendship was seen in tamil cinema. There are beautiful plots in the movie expressing soft emotions.

The elephant Manickam steals everyone's heart he is majestic and cute. The music by Imman is brilliant, the whole movie hall went crazy for each and every song. A must watch in Cinema Hall for the breathtaking locations.
