Storyline

Ayyampettai Arivudainambi Kaliyaperumal Chandran is a hip graduate who gets a job through his family doctor. The employer, Sri Ramachandramurthy has some frivolous notions about character, moustache, patriotism, thrift, recreation, etc. Chandran changes himself as a Nehru-jacket wearing, boring person, with no interests other than studies. His plan goes for a toss when he lies about his (dead) mother's accident to watch a football match. Unknown to him, his boss finds him having a fiesta in the stadium. To avoid losing his job, he creates a fictional wild and westernized twin Ayyampettai Arivudainambi Kaliyaperumal Indran by removing his moustache on the advice of his actor friend Nagesh and becomes the music teacher for his equally wild daughter. Confusion and complications ensue when he has to recruit a small-time actress as his mother, and a kid who knows the proceedings starts blackmailing him. Written by manojar

Laugh riot
7 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

It's not often that remakes turn out better than the original. This one does. A copy of the Hindi Golmaal, it has Rajini in a hilarious role. Visu's dialogues and K Balachander's comic genius, topped with MSV's melodious songs, have given Tamil film lovers an all-time comedy classic. Thengai Sreenivasan is in his element. Don't miss it.
