The film opens with a flashback, which introduces us to the typical 'pei' bungalow, situated on a hill station. After narrating what happened in that bungalow many years ago, Dhilluku Dhuddu snaps back to the present.
It wouldn't be an overstatement to say the entire film rides on Santhanam's ability to keep his audiences occupied and happy. His one-liners and other antics is what makes this film work.
Newcomer Shanaya is a serious mismatch as the girl makes it obvious that she is a complete stranger to Tamil with her awful lip-sync.
Overall View: Barring the first half and scenes involving Shanaya, Dhilluku Dhuddu is a neat entertainer with loads of laugh-out-loud moments.
