Hari (Vemal) and Giri (Singampuli) work in a pharmacy during the day and double up as smalltime robbers in night. But their targets are too small- like mosquito bats, talcum powder and soap boxes.
Since they don’t want to get caught by the police, they steal small items like this and sell them later for a meagre amount.
Both have a back story. While Vemal, who was working as a waiter at a pub in London, had actually fled to India unable to bear the sex torture from a horny female (Miya Rai Leone), Giri’s wife had eloped with some other man.
One day, the two happen to steal Rs five lakh each. Following this, a police officer (Mansoor Ali Khan), who owns the money, deputes his junior (Poorna) to catch the thieves.
But the woman cop is not the only one who is behind the duo. While the family of Vemal’s lover Surekha (Ashna Zaveri) wants to murder him for sleeping with their daughter, a local don (Anandaraj) is chasing for a medicine box and the horny woman reaches India in search of Hari.
Director A R Mukesh’s idea seems to be simple and interesting- Mix an adult story into the comedy genre of Sundar C and Crazy Mohan. The end-product is Ivanukku Engeyo Macham Iruku, which works to an extent.
While the film scores big on the glamour element, thanks to liberal skin show, the writing in comedy portions could have been certainly better.
Vemal has understood that the actual comedy is on him and has perfomred well. Ashna Zaveri has delivered what is expected from her, while Mia Rai Leone adds steam to the proceedings.
Veterans like Anandaraj and Mansoor Ali Khan tickle the funny bone well. Equally good is Singampuli. Backed by a strong cast and sexy heroines, director Mukesh scores in Ivanukku Engeyo Macham Iruku.
