Thillu Mullu

K.Balachandar is known for directing movies with a punching story line. To best of my knowledge he is the only director who makes the viewers think. K.B. has proved that even with a very thin storyline he can take the viewers by strom in the movie Thillu Mullu. The dialogs are not by his "Asthana Vidvan" Ananthu but by Visu. Those are the days Bells pant was at its peak. People with a huge bell bottom pavadai pant, kazhudhai kadhu collar tight half slack shirt with flowers on it and a pattai belt of width 2.5 inchs,hippi hair cut and a huge mouch were the youngsters of those days. Typical example is the dress that Rajini or Kamal wears in Ninaithale inikkum and the kind of dress/hair style that kamal wears in the song Germanyin senthen malare from the film ullasaparavaigal.Enjoy the Classic Comedy movie review.


The movie starts with the song thillu mullu thillu ullam ellam...!The story is about a talented youngster who is none other than our thanga thalaivar super star Rajnikanth. The hero wants to enjoy life with his friends like our lollu boys. But those are the days when the Bosses used to be very strict and they expect employees to be very much disciplined. After completing his studies he is forced to take up a job as the family situation demands, it is the conventional Tamil Cinema centiment vayasukku vandha thangachi and fortunately vayasana amma and the brothers are missing in this movie. One of his family friends "Poornam" Viswanathan tells him about a opening in a company like Sun/Cisco/Microsoft owned by "Thengai" Srinivasan and he also tells him the expectation of the owner. Rajnikanth pretends to meet expection of the Boss by giving fake certificates that he knows C++,Java, Oracle, Corba,Blue tooth and what not. He gets the job.

The real story starts when Thengai sees Rajinikanth in a football match. The trouble starts because Rajini asks his friend to make a phone call saying that his(Rajini's) sister is sick but that guy sodhapifies it saying mother is sick. And from that point Rajini claims that he has a brother who is good for nothing etc and builds a story on that. Then Thengai offers a job of a music teacher to his daugher for the fictious character for which Rajini has to shave off his mouche. And atlast because of a servant boy thengai comes to know the truth and starts chasing Rajini for cheating him and as usual the story ends with a subam and thengai accepts to give his daughter to Rajini.

The imporant thing to be appreciated in this movie is the screenplay by K.B. He portrays thengai as a man with great values especially a man with a value story behind a huge mouche. Thengai is a man who believes that honesty should be there in every aspect. A man with a huge mouch will be very good at heart. Office things from telephone to stationery and even the lu should be used only for official purposes. He believes that a person working overtime is inefficient. His employees should respect elders and follow them without asking any question even if they are wrong! Last but not the least he is a great patriot. And Thengai has done a great job in this movie as per the expectation of KB.


Rajinikanth has done a great job in this movie in fact this is the first movie in which he has acted without mouch. His name in this movie is "Ayyampettai" Arivudai Nambi Kaliyaperumal Chandran. And the name of the fictious character his brother without mouch is "Ayyampettai" Arivudai Nambi Kaliyaperumal Indran. The interview scene and the scene in which thengai describes Rajini in the football match was really great, the way Rajini portrays the situation and making it favourable was simply great.


Thengai is no doubt a great artist. Priya, Krishnan Varuvan, Kasethan Kadavulada are few examples. In this movie he has done a great job acting as a man of values. His name in this movie is SriRamachandramoorty. Especially the story behind the mouche and the way he behaves with soukar janaki who acts as Rajini's mother saying that "Indha laddellam inga sapida koodadhu prasadama veetukku eduthuttu poi sapdanum enna idhu andha Mahatma Gandhikke samchu potta kai!" And in a party scene a person asks him "Sir whiskya Brandya" for which he retaliates saying "Nan Gandhi da" was great. Good Job Thengai.


Though this character doesn't have any connection with the story(as if there is something). The trouble starts when the Servant of Thengai sees Rajini & Nagesh talking about aalmarattam and the meesai episode. While suggesting Soukar Janaki for acting mother of Rajini the way he describes Soukar was great.


This female is hired by Rajni to act as his mother in front of Thengai. She has really done a great job. Especially when thengai sees her for the first time and asks her religiously Onga veetukku Mahathma Gandhi vandhu irundhappo enna senjarnnu sonnenga indha kadhu kulira kekkalam and for which she says enna senjar vandhodane sattaiya kazhatti coat standla pottar! Then Thengai asks Mahatmakku edhu sattai and she samalifing was great. And when thengai sees her in a party wearing a pattu saree and jewels all over her body like our foster mother and her close associate he gets shocked and wants to verify so he comes to Rajini's house and before that she enters the house from the back door and again a great samalification. Great job soukar.
