Actors Karthi and Santhanam, whom audiences have seen only as friends in Siruthai and Saguni, for the first time, will be portraying a dislike for each other in Alex Pandian. Before you jump to a conclusion, Santhanam doesn’t play the villain in the film as there are already Milind Soman, Suman and Mahadevan to fight it out with Karthi. Santhanam plays a bullfighter (Jallikattu) and Karthi, a reckless person who takes shelter in the former’s place.

But Santhanam is scared of Karthi and tries to keep him away from his house. In the process, Santhanam creates a few plots to keep Karthi away from home, but those very plots turn in latter’s favour putting the comedian under immense pressure. The reason behind Santhanam’s hatred will be known only in the second half of the film.

Actor Anushka, who essays the role of Karthi’s love interest in the film, will be  seen in a regular commercial Tamil movie after a long stint. Stunt sequences of this film are said to be an action treat for the audience.

There songs are composed by Devi Sri Prasad and the film has been slated for Pongal release along with director Ameer’s Aadhi Bhagavan.
