Cast: Udayanidhi Stalin, Santhanam, Hansika Motwani, Saranya, Shayaji Shide
Director: M Rajesh

With comedian Santhanam for company and his trademark sardonic jejune jokes and oneliners serving as tickling template, producer-turned-debutant actor Udhayanidhi Stalin’s Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (One stone, One mirror) is a nonsensical chuckle-a-minute marathon.

A routine, run-of-the-mill romance, OKOK revolves around the cupid escapades of a seemingly jobless youth, an usher in a multiplex on the prowl to snare the suitable match for himself. 

Written and scripted by director Rajesh, OKOK has in Saravanan and Parthasarathy, care-free bosom buddies having a whale of a time chasing skirts. Needless to say when Saravanan, who brushes aside every other girl with scorn and spite, however, falls head over heels in love with the rich and fair Meera (training to be an air hostess) at first sight. She, however, spurns him caring two hoots for his thamasha.

With pal Partha providing moral support to his love-lorn chum, it’s wooing time, hook, line and sinker. Of course, every tale has a twist in its tacky tail. What’s that? You better head to OKOK folks. OK!

Tickling your funny bones being the film’s focal point, every reason and rhyme goes for a glorious toss. Udaya, still a novice, manages to fit into the actor’s shoes, while Hansika is all la-di-da lass she is expected  to play.

However, it’s Santhanam’s show all the way, who incidentally is OKOK’s only saving grace. Minus the man, the movie is the pits. Shy away from this mundane mirth, and if a stone is handy lob at the mirror of loony life and living it showcases.
