Synopsis: After his girlfriend breaks up with him, a guy tells his friends that he’s going to commit suicide and goes missing. Thus begins a nightmare for the friends…

Review: Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal feels like a spiritual cousin to Kappal, which released a couple of years ago. In that film, we had three guys who were hell bent on breaking up the romance of their friend, and putting him in all sorts of trouble. Here, the opposite plays out — a guy’s breakup results in sheer torment for his three friends. There are other elements that feel similar — comedy that is low and broad, lines that are misogynist but passed off as humour and ‘advice’, and a tone that is jarring.

The film revolves around Krishna (Jai), an IT professional whose girlfriend Divya (Pranitha Subhash) leaves him for another guy. A heartbroken Krishna decides to commit suicide, but a counsellor (Thambi Ramaiah) tells him that he should talk to his friends to feel better. However, the three friends (Karunakaran, Kaali Venkat and Naveen George Thomas) do not take his threat seriously, and so, he goes to a lodge with the intention of killing himself. Meanwhile, his friends begin to miss him and start searching for him, fearing the worst. And during this search, they get into problems of their own. Is there an end to their nightmare?

The initial scenes of Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal almost make you regret your decision of watching the film. They are loud, unfunny and agonizingly painful (Thambi Ramaiah, especially, is unbearable). And with Jai trying hard to recreate his comic persona from Raja Rani, things look bleak. Thankfully, once the focus shifts to the plight of the friends, we get a few laughs here and there to keep us amused. But then, the director isn’t sure of how to resolve things and begins to introduce serious stuff like cold-blooded murder, imprisonment and life-threatening accident. And Rajendran turns up as Karuppu Rock, and tries hard to make us laugh. These only contribute to bloat and our patience starts to wear thin.
