Vivekh's Palakkattu Madhavan has made a decent opening in the box-office. As usual the actor has stolen the show with his witty punches. Directed by Chandra Mohan, the film is a comedy drama which conveys a social message to the audience. Sonia Agarwal plays the female lead, with a refreshing mature role of a Tamil wife. The back-to-back jokes of Vivekh and the wonderful chemistry between him and Sonia Agarwal has impressed the audience.

The comedy flick also has a long line of actors like Manobala, Aarthi, Lollu Sabha Swaminathan and Naan Kadavul Rajendran who help in maintaining the comedy throughout the film. Veteran actress Sheela's emotional role is one to watch out for. The film is produced by J.A. Lawrence under his banner, SSS Entertainments.

Though Kamal Haasan's Papanasam released on the same date, Vivekh's Palakkattu Madhavan has managed to get a Ireasonably good audience, which reflects the comedy star's fan following. Before the release of the film, the actor had requested the audience to encourage his film as well, as it would be competing with a big star's film, and they seem to have heeded.
