Kalavani Mappillai is the comedy entertainer scripted and directed by Gandhi Manivasagam. The film features Dinesh Ravi, Aditi Menon, “ Devayani,” “Anandaraj,” Munishkanth “Ramdoss,” “ Chaams” and Naan Kadavul Rajendran.” NR Raghunanthan composed the music. Saravanan Abhimanyu cranked the camera and PK edited the film. Gandhi Manivasagam and Rajeshwari Manivasagam produced the film under the banner, Rajapushpa Pictures.


Devayani is from a wealthy family. She doesn’t like liars and wants people to be truthful. Devayani’s dad was in poor health and he was in a condition to be taken to the hospital. But, Devayani’s husband Anandaraj had hidden the truth that he doesn’t know to drive the car. As her dad was not admitted to the hospital on time, he died and this made Devayani angry and she doesn’t have good terms with her husband. Aditi Menon is Devayani – Anandaraj’s daughter. She is a veterinary doctor. She loves Dinesh. Dinesh doesn’t know to drive any vehicle, as his parents didn’t allow him to drive the vehicles, as an astrologer advised him to avoid driving. Devayani comes to know about the love matters of her daughter and she arranges for the marriage. What will happen if she comes to know that Dinesh doesn’t know to drive vehicles? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

Devayani had done her part perfectly. Anandaraj had also done what is needed for his role. Dinesh had tried comedy and it had worked out well. Aditi Menon doesn’t have much to do in the film, but she had played her part as directed. The rest of the stars including Munishkanth, Chaams and Naan Kadavul Rajendran had done justice to their roles.


The director Gandhi Manivasagam had taken comedy as the central theme. We couldn’t say that the comedy scenes are impressive, but it had worked out partially. The cinematography and the music are good. Devayani and Anandaraj scenes are good. If the screenplay had been designed well with some more interesting scenes, the film might have impressed.

What’s There?

  • Neat star cast and performance
  • Cinematography and the music are good

What’s Not There?

  • The screenplay should have been designed well
  • Logic is missing in some scenes


Kalavani Mappillai might not impress everyone, but he is not a bad Mapillai to sideline. Kalavani Mappillai – Watchable once!
