Mareechan (Jayaram) disguised as a deer to attract Sita for Ravana gets killed by Lord Rama's arrow. He is also cursed that he will remain a rock, till somebody comes to free him after a few centuries.

Then the story jumps to the modern day. Rajaram (Nasser) is a rich estate owner in Ooty whose relatives, M.S. Bhaskar, Ilavarasu and Mayilsamy exploit him and wait to loot the entire property.

At that time a girl namely Sita (Saranya Mohan) enters the house as Rajaram's PA, and realizes the plan of his relatives. Now the comedy trio wants to bump off Sita who has fallen in love with the cook of the house Sriram (Aravind).

They appoint a killer Pandi (Karnas) and his assistant (Ganja Karuppu). She is thrown off a cliff, but lands on Mareechan's rock and his curse is lifted. Mareechan is indebted to Sita, who is the only person who can see him and thus becomes her protector.

Meanwhile Manickam (Nassar) a dark and illiterate fisherman gives freedom to a Genie Idumban (Raju Easwaran), whose only purpose has been to be to marry Mandakini (Samiksha), Mareechan's wife!

After the mythological fights and graphical efforts the evil forces are vanished and Mareechan help the good people to get back their property.

There is no need to bother about the logic and other minor mistakes in the film. The main aim of the producer is to give a clean entertainment. That aim is fulfilled successfully and the director has delivered the right things to the children.

M.S Bhaskar, Ilavarasu, Karnas, Ganja Karuppu, and Mayilsamy try to make it a laughter riot.

Veteran actors Nasser, Jayaram and Prakash Raj play their parts with ease and professional touch.

Saranya Mohan looks good and delivers some talents. Sundar C Babu's music is a pass muster.

Verdict: Panchamiratham - Healthy comic!
