Director Sundar C. seems to have a "special formula"
of his own to make a movie successful; The formula is of course, "comedy".
This is the reason, why his movies Ullathai Alli Thaa, Mettukudi etc. turned out to be
box-office hits. He continues to use this "special formula" in his
latest offering Janakiraman.
Sarat Kumar plays the lead role as
Janakiraman and Goundamani plays his brother. They are nephews of Sunderajan (their
Sitthappa), Sunderajan is an 'Aanjaneyar' devotee and trains the two brothers
to live as bachelor's. They are instructed not to talk to or look at any
Manivannan, who plays another uncle, wants to get his two daughters married to the two brothers.
So when Sunderajan goes out of town, Manivannan dresses up as 'Aanjaneyar' and
comes to Janakiraman's bedroom and advices him to get married (as expected
our hero really believes that the real 'Aanjaneyar' had come to see him).
'Aanjaneyar' (mani) even tells Janakiraman that he has a girl for him and asks
him to meet her in 'Aanjaneyar' temple. Mani(as 'Aanjaneyar')
also gives him the colour combination of the blouse and thavani that this girl would be wearing.
Mani then gets his daughters to dress up according to the colour
combination. But things go wrong when Janakiraman gets confused switches the colour
combination of the blouse and thavani and meets Indhu(Nagma) instead.
Indhu is not happy living with her sisters because her two brothers-in-law
(Anandaraj & Ponnambalam) want to marry her as their second wife. So
Janakiraman & Indhu plans to get married; and on the wedding day Anandaraj sets
up a duplicate bride (to be switched with Indhu) Meanwhile Mani arranges the
marriage of one of his daughter with Janakiraman (with the same idea as Anandaraj)
to be held on the same day & in the same wedding hall as Janakiraman &
Indhu's wedding. So all the four girls (Indhu, Mani's two daughters, and the
duplicate bride) wear exactly similar sarees, their faces covered with hanging flowers, get
switched (this is where the best comedy scenes comes in). The
confusion somehow brings Janakiraman & Indhu together and they get married;
which disappoints Manivannan & Anandaraj.
Janakiraman & Indhu's happiness is shattered when Gayatri (Rambha) comes in the
climax before the interval, and claims to be Janakiraman's first wife?
Is Gayatri really Janakiraman's first wife? No.. No... I'm not going to
give away the answer... Watch the movie and find out for yourself!
Finally, this movie has plenty of laughs and fast pacing music. Both
Sundar C. and Sirpy have done an excellent job. They should be credited for
their work. I see another hit like Ullathai Alli Thaa coming up! So I would say Go
