If watching a film filled with fun and frolic without racking your brains much, well, this is the movie that you should settle for without any hesitation! Vishnu Vishal and Soori join hands once more and the outcome is nothing short of a laughter riot! Catherine Tresa hasn’t much of a scope in the proceedings but to provide the oomph factor which she does without a blemish!

Soori scores almost in all the scenes that he appears either all alone or in the company of Vishnu Vishal! His expressions, especially after the kidney removal episode, have to be seen to be enjoyed! Though Anandraj makes a belated appearance, he proves a scene-stealer!

Naan Kadavul Rajendran is brilliant as a stage singer with the viewers going into gales of laughter on his very appearance! K.Nataraj as the heroine’s father has executed himself well.

Aruldoss as a scheming gangster operating on behalf of a funny villain creates an impact!

J.Lakshman’s colorful camera work and Sean Roldan’s fast paced score add pep to the proceedings!

Thambidurai (Vishnu Vishal) and Annadurai (Soori) are two close friends from childhood and are like the two sides of the same coin!

Thambidurai takes up the job of a Revenue Inspector and soon falls in love with Kanmani (Catherine Tresa) whose father (K.Nataraj, Vishnu Vishal’s real life father in law as well!) is very particular that his daughter should marry a brave man!

Needless to mention, Thambidurai is a coward by nature and on a few occasions he proves it beyond any doubt to his prospective father in law who humiliates Thambudura’s family when they visit his house seeking his daughter’s hand!

How Thambidurai turns brave and impresses his lover’s dad and finally wins her hand is the funny rest!

There is a funny track involving a Sheikh from Dubai (Anandaraj) who is badly in need of a kidney! It is Thambidurai who is supposed to be the donor, thanks to the (wrong) diagnosis of a light hearted doctor (Vijay Sethupathi in a cameo!)but at the nick of time, Annadurai does it, though, unwillingly!


A time pass that is enjoyable, most of the time!
