Movie Title

Namma Veetu Kalyanam



Star Cast

Murali, Vivek, Vadivelu, Meena

V. Sekhar does only one type of film- family comedies. He usually mixes the right amount of sentiments, so that the distributors would get their money from the lady audience in B and C stations. At times this recipe becomes a little stale like the latest Namma Veetu Kalyanam.

Murali and Vivek are two graduates who come to Chennai in search of jobs. They stay in Vadivelu`s house, which is owned by Livingston, an auto driver. Livingston`s wife has two rich sisters Meena and Vindhya. Their brother Rajiv is an MLA. They give Rs.1.5 lakhs to a politician and wait for a job in a college. The two sisters who had rejected a number of proposals earlier fall in love with Murali and Vivek as Vadivelu convinces them that both of them are professors in college. Rajiv?s plans to get his sisters married to the two sons of the education minister go awry. But finally Rajiv agrees to his sisters` suitors. But after the wedding, Rajiv and the girls are shocked to know that Murali and Vivek are unemployed. The girls refuse to go with their husbands and the problems begin. How the two takes a vow to win back their wives forms the rest of the story.

V. Sekhar?s storytelling technique and the technical aspects of the film are archaic. The problem with this film is that Murali and Vivek looks too old to be graduates out of college looking out for jobs! As for Meena she has not only aged but is willing to do any role opposite some hero. Is she that desperate? Vadivelu is too loud and S.A.Rajkumar?s music is repetitive. The only saving grace is Vivek and his one-liners.

Verdict: Big Yawn
