Adida Melam, the directorial venture of Anbu Stalin, who has also handled the camera, has hit the screens now. Let' see how Adida Melam turned out to be.


Abhay Krishna is a marriage planner and is immersed in debts. Once he bounces upon "Abhinaya" and asks her to consult him in case she requires any help for her marriage. He also gave his mobile number to her. Abhinaya calls up Abhay to be the marriage planner for her friend's marriage. Abhay borrows some money and does the required work for the marriage. When Abhay goes to the temple with the bride, the latter gets married to someone else. The family members of the bride think that Abhay is the cause for all the problems and hence, they refuse to give him the required amount. 

Abhay gets angry with Abhinaya for bringing him to such a pitiable situation. In the meantime, Abhay’s mother Urvashi falls sick, and Abhinaya helps Abhay for the medical treatment. She also tells him that she will clear his debts. She says that her marriage has been fixed and asks Abhay to tell to her family members that their horoscopes don’t match. If Abhay does so, then she will give him the money.

On the other hand, the would-be of Abhinaya asks him to tell that their horoscopes match; by doing so, he promises to give Abhay extra 10 lakhs. Who will Abhay help finally? Watch the movie to find it out.

Star Performances

Abhay, who debuts with this movie, does a great job for a newcomer. Abhinaya does full justice to her role while Urvashi is as usual at her best and her comedy works well. V Jayaprakash and Mayilsamy give seasoned performances.


The director Anbu Stalin has given a different screenplay, and some of the scenes deserve special mention.

What’s there?

The music of Abhishek Lawrence is excellent. He has also worked on a convincing BGM.

What’s not there?

  • We get confused as to what temperament does the movie belong to.
  • The film lacks in technical finesse. 


The film has a unique screenplay and can be watched at least for that.
