A story of mistaken identity: an innocuous good guy (Jayaram) is mistaken for a gangster boss who may well have been his twin brother. Most Western versions of this plot e.g. featuring Jerry Lewis or Fernandel, explore the situation’s comic potential. However, Padmarajan sees the plot as a psychological drama.
