Gudipoodi Srihari Review

This film produced by Maniratnam, has a title that indicates the percussion sound of a marriage band. Director Alagam Perumal makes an entertaining film, helped by good dialogues. There are number of characters and the dialogue writer takes credit for the humor vein that runs through the drama. The base provided to build this drama is an improbable situation, but has enough potential to kick off the humor machine.

A boy and a girl, whose respective fathers decide to get them married without their consent, come together to burst their scheme. Aditya (Madhavan) and Ganga(Jyotika) make this strange pair to be wed as the relationship between Aditya's father Balaramayya and Ganga's father Venkatapathy is like master and his most trusted lieutenant. Venkatapathy's daughter Ganga gets through her exams with flying colours and aspires to continue her studies further. Aditya on the other hand is also not in a hurry to get married as he feels he wants to enjoy his student life. Therefore both meet at a place and agree to disagree for the marriage proposal.

The film is highly engaging. Jyotika's character portrayal is invested with lot of mime. Her static expressions however are boring at times. Madhavan's is a flamboyant and talkative role. There are characters earmarked for pure humor, like the role of Swamy who is an odd job man in Balaramayya's house.

Mani Vannan gets a peculiar role of a lawyer. Every character is presented in a satirical way, which is the film's strength. Each artiste performs with the ease.The other artistes include Vivek, Murali, V.K. Ramaswamy, Delhi Kumar, Kalpana and others. Music by Kartik Raja is pleasing and the picturization of each song is sensible and attractive. Photographic work is another technical asset of the film.
