Laugh a Minute Riot !!!
7 October 2018 | by hguy1See all my reviews

(Telugu) Kamalhassan has sadly fallen into a groove. One hit followed by many dud. Thankfully, this is a hit. Kamal and four friends find themselves in non-stop crazy situations that will make viewers ROFL. To top it, these four friends speak different languages. have crazier families. A misunderstanding drives a wedge between Kamal and wife. This itself will have you laughing all the way. The four friends try helping out but get entangled in a murder.

The rest you have to see for yourself. Keep your eyes open (or don't) for a small but sexy role by Ramya Krishnan. The star of this movie is the unseen writer(s) and the story and dialogues.
