Director Gandhi Manivasagam’s debut film, Kalavani Mappillai is a family entertainer. The story of Kalavani Mappillai is simple, a young man (Deva) has to hide the fact that he can’t drive from a rich woman to marry her daughter.
It traces the struggles of men who suffer from Vaagana Dhosham, which prevents them from driving any kind of vehicle.
Deva’s mother Renuka checks the young boy’s horoscope by showing with the astrologist predict Deva shouldn’t drive any vehicles, if he tries in any cost there is no guarantee for his life.
Once Deva grew up, the fellow tried to practice a bike with the help of his friend. Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it in a proper way. In that situation, beautiful lady rides a bike and in that first sight both of them falls in love.
Now the twist to the story is that the director project Devayani as an honest woman, if anybody cheat her, she would be taking a serious action against them. In that case, the affected person is Anandaraj that he never knew to drive a car, that she believes her husband cheated her and she entirely dominated him.
Again, our silly hero tries to impress his mother-in-law, dragging out an old Padmini car of Rajendran. Deva, by accidentally hitting on an awful lady of Devayani’s car. By all these collapsed, how our innocent hero getting married to atrocious mother-in-law Devayani’s daughter is balance story.
Dinesh’s performance is like to be casual there is no strong output in his acting, Devayani and Anandaraj both were supporting towards the film. The songs are not much catchy.
