Hari and Giri work in a pharmacy. Giri’s wife left him and he has to care for his children as a single parent and Hari, who worked in a London pub, returned home due to sexual harassment. Hari is in love with Surekha. As their salary is not enough to run their life, Hari and Giri steal petty things from the houses and sell them. One day, Hari gets Rs 5 lakhs from a house and he decides to settle in life with his lover with the money he got. Similarly, Giri also gets a money bag like Hari, but both hide the truth. Meanwhile, a group chases them for the bags they had stolen. At the same time, a cop and his subordinate search them, as the money stolen was from his house. Did the police catch them? What happened to Hari and Surekha’s marriage? The answers to these questions form the rest of the plot.
Vimal has played a playboy role for the first time. His comedy timing is good as usual. Ashna Zaveri and Mia Leone don’t have anything special to perform except the skin show. The talented actress like Poorna is wasted in this film. Singampuli’s performance is good as usual. Anandaraj and Mansoor had done justice to their roles.
The film is not a complete adult comedy entertainer but has some scenes that create giggles and laughs too. The first half is a bit slow and after Anandaraj’s entry, the film takes a new speed. Except those heroines’ scenes, other scenes are good. The characterization is good; especially Anandaraj’s character is designed interestingly well. Even though some scenes are predictable, the performances of the stars make it interesting.
What’s Not There?
If the makers had concentrated more on the script than the adult content, with the natural performances of the stars, the film would have made a hit.
