If Thillu Mullu is your choice to spend time in theatres, then you will have to follow these three rules before watching it.

Don’t pull yourself for a lot of comparison between the original version and this remake. Of course, the former cannot be outmatched for its package of classic comedy and presence of iconic actors.

Don’t look for logic.

Watch it if you are really looking out for a stress buster and indulge in excess laughter riot.

Situations urge the devil-may-care Pasupathi to transform into a patriotic, simple and spiritual person for chiselling his boss (Prakash Raj) on a perfect job with high-scale salary. On an occasion, Pasupathi lies to boss that his mother’s health (who has already passed away) is critical and takes a leave only to watch 20-20 game and attend after-match party along with his friends. Things get complicated, when his boss finds Pasupathi bringing the roofs down there. To save his skin, Pasupathi creates a fictional character of his cat-eyed twin brother Gangu-Lee Kandhan (named after his favourite cricket personality Ganguly and Kung-Fu legend Bruce Lee) and is appointed to train boss’ daughter (Isha Talwar) on Karate.

Let’s get it clear! Thillu Mullu boast of some best hilarious moments as you’ll incessantly laugh to the core. Shiva’s utterance of ‘Flower Pot Kushango’, ‘Sir, accept my resignation letter and my brother’s one written in Chinese’ keeps us heavily intact. It looks like Badri was clear about his thoughts while deciding to remake the classic comedy ‘Thillu Mullu’ and has distinctly added humour to every phase of the film. Of course, this trial-and-error comedy gets more intense with a bunch of characters – cunning assistant (Manobala), ridiculous detective, a mass hero (Sathyan), a conniving friend (Pasupathi) in love with Pasupathi’s sister, a black market liquor seller recruited as Pasupathi mother (Kovai Sarala) and an unexpected appearance of Santhanam brings you up-and-down with its laughter quotient. The first half proceeds on an impressive note and you wouldn’t feel an hour has passed for its pace. However, post-intermission the momentum drops slights and things are back to normalcy within short span of time.


On the performance level, Mirchi Shiva effortlessly carries off his role with an ease. His simple and natural performance with the blend of humour sense keeps the audience engrossed. Isha Talwar, the girl who swept the hearts of many in Kerala with her magnum opus Thattathin Marayathu appears here as a Barbie Doll and nothing much to perform. Last time, we saw the power-packed humour actor of Prakash Raj in Vasool Raja MBBS and his brilliant act becomes a strong pillar to this film. Undoubtedly, no other actor would have given an appealing performance as him. Kovai Sarala with her energetic performance rolls you with laughter and not to miss the biggest one – the encounter between her, college girls and Manobala in the slum. Once Santhanam appears on the screen, he easily overshadows everyone on the screens and our lips sparkle with smile. His witty lines of referring Prakash Raj as ‘Angry Bird Mookan’ (Angry Bird Nose) and Ajay Rathnam as Naalaya Manidhan throw a blast of humour feast. Naturally, such reference can be made to Goundamani’s panache and the dialogues between Santhanam-and-his-father remind us of the veteran comedian with Venniraadai Moorthy.

On the flip side, there isn’t much to mention, but the songs turn out to be little disappointing. Especially, the esthetical sense of all time classic song ‘Raagangal Pathinaaru’ from original version has failed to be recreated with right sense. The makers have blindly pushed the song into the glamour zone with unwanted outdoor location. Most of the songs are nowhere close to the film indeed. The visuals are decorous and editing gets us the scene through proper transition. Yes, there are moments of laugh with best comedy and on pars with some elements that sound ludicrous like ‘Thayir Vada’ sequence and Parotta Soori’s character sketch.
Overall, Thillu Mullu will click with the universal audience in no time. Director Badri’s perfect work on script, dialogues and characterisations makes it as a cool good entertainer. Right in the climax, your minds would yearn for the film to extend for few more minutes and that’s a brilliant impact of it.
