Damaal Dumeel, produced by C J Jayakumar and written and directed by Shree, is a thriller loaded with enough fun. What happens when a youth who ends up losing his job comes across a fortune? What price he has to pay for it? Is that morally right to lay hands on someone's property? Answers to all these questions lies in Damaal Dumeel.

The movie manages to arouse curiosity on two counts. - One it is the maiden directorial venture of Shankar's associate Shree and secondly a solo hero attempt by Vaibhav, who was seen playing second fiddle in all director Venkat Prabhu films in the recent past.

Vaibhav and Remya Nambeesan play the lead roles with Kota Srinivasa Rao, Sayaji Shinde and Charlie in prominent roles. The crew comprises Thaman.S  (music) and A M Edwin Sakay (cinematography).

Events that happens in a day in the life of an IT professional is the film. Manikandan (Vaibhav) works in an IT firm in Chennai. Life is fun for him as money is no problem. But one fine day, he loses his job. When he thinks life has ended, he gets a parcel which has Five Crore. With the money, Manikandan plans to escape from India and lead a happy life.

But enters two goons Illavarasu (Kotta Srinivasa Rao) and Kamatchi (Shayaji Shinde) claiming the money is theirs. Manikandan's lover Remya gets a shock when she comes to know the whole story. What happens then forms the crux.

The movie runs for less than two hours. There are enough twists and turns in the script that makes you laugh at many places. Shayaji and Kotta Srinivasa Rao's character makes it an interesting fare. In fact the latter's dialogue delivery is the highlight. Vaibhav utilises the opportunity to give his best.

His perplexed emotions on seeing the cash is good. Remya  as usual is cute and bubbly. On the technical front, Thaman's background score is racy and the cinematography by Edwin Sarkay is brilliant. The climax sequences are well caught.

Damaal Dumeel is a good attempt at different cinema without crossing the boundaries of commercial pattern.
