Thenali(Kamal Hassan) - a man who fears anything and everything due to earlier life in Sri Lanka. Delhi Ganesh and his assistant, who are doctors treating Thenali, are jealous of a relatively junior doctor Jayram getting all media attention. They sent Thenali to Jayram because the former will drive people round the bend foists Thenali on Dr.Kailash, who is on a vacation along with his wife Jalaja(Devayani) and two children. The expected happens. Thenali falls in love with Janaki (Jyothika) , sister of Jayaram. The whole film is about how Jayram goes mad with the antics of the patient and gets a paralytic attack and is confined to a wheel chair unable to stop the marriage of his sister with Kamal Hassan. Thenali gets well with the shock treatment given by his ex-patient. Meena, Abdhul Hameed, and director Ravikumar make an appearance to give this shock treatment).One cant stop laughing watching Kamal Haasan along with Jayaram comics.
