Right through his life Pandian (Sibiraj) has been merely waiting for lady luck to smile at him, his father would have said him that only the girl whose name will begins with the letter ‘C’ can revitalize his career. Though, Pandian falls in love with Meena (Aishwarya Rajesh), a happy-go-lucky girl and ultimately marries her. The couple fights to lead a standard life as they are until now to be economically stable. That is once Pandian’s school friend ‘Surprise’ Sheela (Chandini) offers them a lucky fish called Kattappa.
The couple will make a top-secret wish in front of the fish which they require one crore however they end up at a vast trouble as three strangers (Thirumurugan, Jaya Kumar, Kaali Venkat) house arrests them to know about the secret shared by a dead man, who had secreted 4 crores.
Also the strange will make them a deal that they will get one crore if they revealed the place where the money is hidden.
In the meantime, Kattapa’s owner Vanjaram (Mime Gopi), a local gangster, employs a detective Sankara (Saravanan) to discover the whereabouts of his treasurable fish. The respite of the film is all about how Pandian solves all these issues.
Coming to acting of Sibiraj, in this film he has improved a lot and he scores with his delicate expressions. Aishwarya Rajesh does not have much space to performance here and she was merely satisfactory. Kaali Venkat is a exposure whereas ‘Mime’ Gopi sleepwalks.
Santhosh Dhayandhi’s song Hey Penne is very much hummable. Even though the film running time is 2 hours but then again it feels so long. The film at the most is a promising effort from a debutant maker.
Movie Rating: 3 out of 5
