Storyline

Thenali (Kamal) is a traumatized Sri Lankan Tamil, who is beset by a variety of elaborate phobias. A psychiatrist Panchabhootam (Delhi Ganesh), convinced that Thenali is impossible, refers him to rival shrink Kailash (Jayaram). The doctor takes an instant dislike to his new patient, while his wife (Devyani) and sister (Jyothika) take more of a liking to him than Kailash would like. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Watch it for Kamal(Vs)Jayaram
25 May 2017 | by naveenvlfkSee all my reviews

A great family entertainer and very rare to see such films these days. Kamal's interpretation on Jayaram's activities is the highlight of the film especially the second half at its best. Ar Rahman's great songs with Kamalhasan and Jyotika stylish dance movements is a plus.The doctors pair Ramesh and Delhi Ganesh are fabulous. Kamal's regular style of dialogue delivery in srilankan accent and his stunt sequences especially the Mouse fight will be a delight. Watch it once with your entire family and kids.
