There is an Akshaya Pathram that makes the owner wealthy. Akshaya and Masha, the con-women earn money in various ways. They get to know that the vessel had been buried in Manasthan’s home. So, they try to grab it and become rich. What are the obstacles they face to get the vessel and how they overcome it, forms the rest of the plot!

Star Performance

Jyothika has done a never seen before role and she rocked it in her style. Her stylish appeal, dialogue delivery and mass entry are just a treat to her fans. Revathi’s performance is fantastic and she is natural, as usual. But, there is a person to overtake these two and it is none other than Anandaraj. His dual role, his body language and his expressions are fabulous. He steals the show! The rest of the stars are good with their performance.


The director has cared well to make the film without dull moments. The dialogues are penned neatly. The star selection is simply superb and all the artists fit in the roles, rightly. Except in the climax, all the scenes give ROFL moments and the audiences enjoy it. Jyothika’s mass look and stylish performance are one among the most significant pluses and it attracts the audience. However, the characterization is not strong. The script completely runs on the comedy. The cinematography is good. The BGM is a bit loud and it gives a “Heard it somewhere” effect. The climax didn’t have any grip. Although the songs are okayish, some songs seem to have forcefully inserted.

What’s There?

  • Star value of the film is high
  • Performance of the stars is fantastic

What’s Not There?

  • The climax should have been better
  • BGM hurts the eardrums


Although the film has no gripping characters and story, it mainly depends on the comedy, which is available abundantly. If you want to relax, then, try out this film and it is definitely a stress buster!
