Synopsis: A father and son, who fail to understand each other, decide to sort out their issues with the help of their family friend in an unusual and bizarre way.

Review: The words Meenkuzhambum Manpanayum is likely to tickle the taste buds of an average food lover. Having this as a film’s title is sure to evince curiosity among movie buffs. Does the film have enough ingredients to please the appetite of hungry viewers?

The opening scene establishing Annamalai’s (Prabhu) Malaysia-based restaurant, and the scenes that follow promise a fun-filled entertainer. Annamalai asking his customers to patiently wait for the fish curry, a signature dish of the hotel, in a polite way, justifies his character of a grounded person who came all the way from Karaikudi to Malaysia. His only treasure in life, son Karthik (Kalidas), is a happy-go-lucky college student in his late teens. His friendship with college mate Pavitra (Ashna Zaveri) blossoms into love, and that is when a confused Karthik leaves his doting dad disappointed due to his behaviour. Sensing the tussle between father and son, Bhuvanendran (Y Gee Mahendra), a family friend of theirs, introduces to them to a saint-like person (Kamal Haasan), whose identity is kept as a mystery throughout the film. This character advises the duo to do something for better understanding each other. How the father-son duo sort out their indifferences is narrated through partly-engaging sequences.

Kalidas, as a charming and irresponsible college student, fits the bill, and makes his debut a flawless one. Prabhu, too, pulls off his role effortlessly. Pooja Kumar, as a lady don, and Urvasi, as Pavitra’s mother, are descent. MS Bhaskar, as the main don, manages to create a few laughs. Considering Kamal’s equation with Prabhu and Jayaram, his cameo doesn’t come as a surprise, as he has made similar appearances earlier, too. However, the scenes in which he appears needed better execution, and his character could have been given more detailing.

With a not-so-bad story line, the director has tried his best to weave a fantasy story laced with humour.
