Aadama Jaichomada is an upcoming Tamil comedy film directed by Badri and produced by B&C films. The movie dialogues were penned by Mirchi Shiva.

Story Line

Aadama Jaichomada is a full length comedy movie with some interesting and real facts based and spot fixing in IPL. Definitely Aadama jaichomada will satisfy every set of audience. Its going to be a big treat for the audience on summer holidays.

There really isn't a story in "Aadama Jaichomada" to rave about. It follows a bookie, Dhayalan (Balaji), who plans to buy a bowler ahead of a semi-final cricket match.

A special team headed by Inspector Bhoominathan (Simhaa) has been assigned the case and asked to closely follow Dhayalan, who leads them to Albert, a kingpin in cricket betting. The events that happen during the course of the investigation will leave audiences in splits.

"Aadama Jaichomada", at two hours, which I think is the film's biggest strength, attempts to be a crime-thriller as well as a sports-based comedy. But it only succeeds as the latter, and fails to do justice to the former form.

But considering how efficiently Badri has used the comedy angle in his story, one should ignore minor flaws. Badri's attempt to address a controversial subject with humour is refreshingly creative. The comedy is born out of situations, neatly woven together as part of the screenplay.

Like this scene where Vijayalakshmi, who plays Karuna's (Karunakaran) love interest, talks about her obsession with living in a house with an attached bathroom because all her life she's stood in long queues outside a common bathroom.

Another scene to watch is when K.S. Ravi Kumar narrates the 'Anattamai' story. It's scenes like these that hold the film together and keep us entertained.

The film stars Karunakaran, Bobby Simha, and Vijayalakshmi. The film takes its name from a phrase in "Machi Open The Bottle", a song from the film Mankatha.

Betting on matches and involving bookies, cheaters of players and lots of money is an ancillary match that runs along side every big series. Based on one such event of gambling is what 'Aadama Jaichomada' is about.

Bobby in association with KS Ravikumar and Karunakaran neck deep in trouble with the gang of Aadukalam Naren are the real show runners.

Verdict: A different perspective to betting, earning and the whole gambling business, with a lot of humour.

Though Aadama Jaichomada (won despite not playing) is set in the murky cricket betting business milieu, the movie isn't as dingy as the business is - it is more of a jolly roller coaster ride.

Running for just 2 hours, the biggest plus of Aadama Jeichomada is the director's strength to fill the movie with unintelligence - be it the dialogues, the characters or even the situations - without which the movie would have failed big time.

Verdict: An idiosyncratic jolly one time watch.

In an early scene, police inspector Bhoominathan (Bobby Simha) is asked by the police commissioner (K. S. Ravikumar) to use his famous interrogation technique to get an accused to spill the beans. When you learn that it involves some serious tickling, you know what to expect from the film.

The problem is you can’t quite say that about Aadama Jaichomada. Admittedly, the frequency of funny jokes is higher in the second half, but even that is impeded by the insertion of average songs.

Bottomline: Occasionally funny
