'Thenavattu' (chutzpah) is a tale strictly for the brain dead. For the second time in a little over two months Sun Pictures have come up with a film that seems sillier than their controversial maiden venture.

Director V.V Kathir has filched a few scenes from earlier hits without any sense whatsoever, with ridiculous results.

The film is all about a rustic blacksmith Kootai (Jeeva">Jeeva) who makes sickles for a living.

For no apparent reason, the protagonist lands up in Chennai with a sidekick (Ganja Karuppu) in tow to manufacture the deadly weapons for a gangster Kailasam (Ravi Kale).

Suddenly a buxom belle Gayathri (Poonam Bajwa), a music teacher, enters the scene and promptly falls in love with the sickle-maker.

Soon, there are others - an assorted bunch of politicians, cops and others who drag the story towards a climax wherein the gangster's son molests Gayathri resulting in a vendetta.

The senseless storyline makes one wonder how Jeeva">Jeeva, who has been doing only offbeat sensible films, accepted this assignment.

The cast, direction, music and comedy deserve to be ignored.
