Gautham Karthik and Nikki Galrani’s adult comedy outing that has the quirky title Hara Hara Mahadevaki (HHMD) is directed by debutant Santhosh P Jayakumar. Has this adult comedy tickled a funny bone?

When you enter a cinema hall to witness a 2-hour long film based on adult jokes, it means you are in to get entertained. HHMD which is based on the popular WhatsApp Swamiji has little actually to do with this segment. It only forms a part of the film which has a casting done just to make people laugh.

The cast apart from Gautham and Nikki includes the usual combination of Motta Rajendran, Karunakaran aided by Bala Saravanan. It also has RK Suresh playing a cop and Manobala in a cameo. The usual likes of Motta Rajendran and Karunakaran are funny in portions, and the double meaning jokes strike a chord occasionally.

As for performances, Gautham Karthik fits his role of a happy go lucky guy in love and running a funeral service business. Nikki Galrani has little scope for performance. The combination of Motta Rajendran and Karunakaran is usual, and only a few of their jokes are funny this time. It also gives us the feeling that the comedy artists have become a little overexposed.

The film’s first half takes time actually to start and is a bit slower than the second half. A lot of the jokes also don’t click among audiences in this half that takes its own time to set in. Placement of songs, not very appealing jokes make it the draggy of the two halves.

However, the second half of HHMD has mindless double meaning jokes that might leave watchers in splits. Especially, the scenes involving the snakes and bags are the highlight and the last 30 minutes are very enjoyable. If the entire film had the same strike rate of good jokes, HHMD would have been an extremely entertaining movie.

The narration begins pretty well in the voice that went viral but gets hampered by the pace and the time that has been taken by director Santosh P Jayakumar to introduce his characters. There is not much logic that you would want to look into but the humour factor is what you would be concerned about.

There is nothing much to complain about the technical aspects but nothing alarmingly impressive. Cinematography by SK Selvakumar is attractive in a couple of songs and typical throughout the rest of the film. People might enjoy a couple of numbers by music director Balamurali Balu, especially the title song.

The entire picture might not seem all that appealing, but HHMD has its funny moments and some double meaning jokes that work out pretty well. The last half an hour and the climax block are thoroughly entertaining, but the first half could have had more such elements created to keep audiences hooked to the screen. Though the target audiences might get entertained, one would feel the director could have explored the adult comedy genre more.


Verdict: It's a clear adults only movie, if you switch off the logical expectations, HHMD is enjoyable.

Hara Hara Mahadevaki
Singers: Antony Dasan, Prathi Balasubramanian, Sharmila
Lyrics: Balamurali Balu and Santhosh P Jayakumar

A fun number to start with Balamurali. The title song of Hara Hara Mahadevaki is a number that teases the listener with the famous Hara Hara Mahadevaki verse. Prathi and Sharmila sound stylish, and Antony is at his casual best. The lyrics by Balamurali and Santhosh are quite catchy with a majority of the twisted meaning WhatsApp words used. The female chorus portion is the biggest positive of this electronic based number.


Aaya Sothula
Singers: Josh Vivian, Kavita Thomas
Lyrics: Ku Karthik, Santhosh P Jayakumar


A fast paced western style number by Balamurali Balu. Kavita Thomas is very emotive as a singer and does well with the vocal section. Her dynamics in the high pitch portion are commendable. The instruments used majorly are guitars and drums, and Aaya Sothula is a short number that ends a little abrupt for the way it started.

Bigilu Bigilu
Singers: Marana Gana Viji
Lyrics: Marana Gana Viji, Ku Karthik


What starts off as a slow ranting number, moves on to a super fast folk song. It has a good energy carried by the singer Marana Gana Viji. It is high on local beats and percussions and is interesting to hear even Saavu kuthu beats amidst the usual folk beats.

Chiku Buku
Singer: Gaana Kadal
Lyrics: Gaana Kadal

Chiku Buku is a romance based western number sung by Gaana Kadal. He has an expressive tone throughout and carries the entire number with his vocals. The instruments include strings, indigenous percussions, and guitar apart from an attractive whistle in between. The lazy song is very catchy and grows on the listener.

Haiyo Konjam (Music by Vishal Chandrashekar)
Singers: Gaana Kadal, Sindhuri Vishal Chandrashekar
Lyrics: Gaana Kadal and Santhosh P Jayakumar

Haiyo Konjam is a nice blend by Vishal Chandrashekar. The acoustic and bass guitars are instantly likable elements. The Thavils and flute also attract the listener. Sindhuri’s voice modulation and culture are unique with Gaana Kadal churning out a neat vocal as well. The tune is quite catchy, and saxophone usage in the background is something nice as well.

Verdict: A fun filled and quirky album with a try at some catchy lyrics and funky tunes.
