|Tamil Movie Naan Avan Illai (2007)|
Movie Name: Naan Avan Illai
The story begins in a police station. The police receive a complaint against Jeevan (Annamalai) that he is an imposter who has tricked four women into marrying him and cheated them. The police are after him but he gives them the slip. The bus in which he is escaping meets with an accident. When Jeevan is undergoing treatment in hospital for the injuries, he is arrested by the police and produced in court.
Four women cheated by him ? Malavika (Priya), Jyothirmayi (Ammu Kutti), Keerthi Chawla (Radha) and Namitha (Monica) ? take the witness stand and tell each of their experiences with Jeevan. Jeevan appears in person without engaging a professional lawyer. 'Naan Avanillai" is his clever argument.
The modus operandi of crafty Jeevan is different in each case which makes the film interesting. His first victim is Malavika who is a glamorous model. He introduces himself to her as Vignesh, an entrepreneur from London, marries her and swindles lakes of rupees and jewels.
Then, he barges into a marriage hall calling himself Madhava Menon, the son of the chief minister's sister, and abducts Kerala danseuse Jyothirmayi, after that Industrialist Namitha, a multi-millionaire, and judge Lakshmi's daughter Sneha fall prey to Jeevan's antics in the names of Sham Prasad and renowned artist Zakir Hussain.
On top of all this, Keerthi Chawla, who is deeply religious, is taken for a ride by Jeevan posing as North Indian godman, Hariharadas, a reincarnation of Lord Krishna. Keeping the Sneha-Jeeva episode a separate track is laudable. Sneha brought to bear all her Dubai charm on dance scenes with Jeevan. Malavika, Jyothirmayi, Keerthi Chawla and Namitha play their roles with aplomb oozing glamour.
