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
There are several "keys" to "Kumkey's" success. For starters, Kumki elephants are the ones who are trained to drive off the wild elephants from hindering social life of the people dwelling in the forests.. The director Prabu Solomon has not disappointed the audience and has come out with a clear and charismatic feel good film..
Bomman (Vikram Prabu), cute pet elephant Manikkam and his uncle Thambi Ramiah are nomads, and the 2 (plus another character called Undial) depend on Manikkam for their living... Manikkam is not a wild elephant due to unfortunate circumstances, he had to go to a village pretending to be the Kumki elephant, whom they had hired to protect them from Komban, the terror elephant..
They were just meant to act for 2 days and luckily, Komban does not show up on those days. When the original Kumki was ready to replace Manikkam, Bomman had already fallen in love with Alli (Lakshmi Menon) and decides to stay at the village, pretending to have an actual Kumki in the form of Manikkam. They have some success in training Manikam to do the job of a Kumki.
Alli is is the daughter of the village head, who is very particular about the culture and heritage of the village. The cinematography is splendid and the songs have reached every nook and corner of the state. The screams start even before the song begins... Thambi Ramiah's timing comedy is impeccable and u just cannot stop laughing... Vikram has done really well and will add on to the family legacy.
The second half deals with what happens to Komban?, is he defeated?, does the love story hit a dead end? Did all of them live happily ever after? Well, to have these questions answered, go and watch d film... Definitely worth watching... 8.5/10 it is....
