Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya (English: My Friend/Darling, Would You Like To Eat Laddu?) is a 2013 Indian Tamil romantic comedy film directed by Manikandan. It stars Santhanam, Srinivasan, Sethu and Vishakha Singh.[3] The film marked Santhanam's venture into film production with his Handmade Films. The film was co-produced by Rama Narayanan while S. Thaman scored the film soundtrack.[4] The plot revolves around three friends who fall for the same girl, who has just moved into their neighbourhood.

Plot[edit]

Kaliyaperumal (Santhanam), Power Kumar (Srinivasan) and Shiva (Sethu) are three friends with no occupation other than getting drunk and chasing girls. A pretty girl named Sowmiya (Vishaka) moves in with her family to the house opposite Shiva. The three friends fall for the girl's beauty and make a gentlemen's agreement to let the girl choose her boyfriend. The three attempt different methods to woo her. Shiva helps Sowmiya's aunt (Kovai Sarala) in household work; Kaliyaperumal joins Sowmiya's uncle (Ganesh) to learn singing; Power joins Sowmiya's father (Shivshankar) to learn Bharatanatyam. One day, when none of her other family members are home, the three eventually profess their love, leaving Sowmiya confused. Following the advice of her neighbour (Devadarshini), Sowmiya reveals to all three that she loves actor Silambarasan, nicknamed Simbu. The neighborhood boys then decide to bring Simbu as a gift for Sowmiya's birthday, but Simbu says he does not know anyone named Sowmiya. They then hire a thug named "Kolaveri" David to kidnap Simbu, but he kidnaps Sowmiya instead when he learns he is supposed to kidnap Simbu. After Simbu refuses to help her, Shiva, KK and Power go and save Sowmiya from David, and she falls in love with Shiva, because Power and KK had earlier beaten Sowmiya's uncle and father severely; they later marry.

Release[edit]

Prior to its 13 January 2013 release, filmmaker K. Bhagyaraj filed a suit against the film stating that it used the same storyline as his 1981 film Indru Poi Naalai Vaa. He also accused the filmmakers of not acquiring proper permission and falsely claiming to have acquired the rights from his film. It was later announced that the film, upon orders of a high court,[8] would carry an explanatory card in its title sequence, giving credit to both Bhagyaraj and his Indru Poi Naalai Vaa story.[9] The satellite rights of the film were sold to Sun TV.[10]

Vivek Ramz from in.com rated it 3.5 out of 5 and stated that KLTA is a perfect Pongal treat for the family thanks to its clean humour. "Go watch it and have a blast!"[11] N. Venkateswaran from The Times of India also gave it 3.5 out of 5 saying "Manikandan has now carved out a name for himself in the Tamil film industry"[12] Sify also gave it three stars writing, "Gags galore, Laughs. This one’s strictly for Kollywood junkies whose funny bones are easy to tickle", and called the film a "Jolly fun ride".[13] Oneindia.in said "Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya is a fun ride." [14] In contrast, Behindwoods rated the film 2.5 out of 5, but said, "Replete with humor, KLTA offers what it is set out for-gives an unabashed hilarious 140 minutes" and gave the verdict that it was "an enjoyable fun ride for the festive season".[15]
