Indian Cinema 101: Classic Tamil Comedy 2

comedy Tamil Indian cinema Goundamani Senthil

Classic comedy means nothing without Goundamani & Senthil duo. Image source: The News Minute

Continuing from Part 1, here is another comedy scene from the Tamil Movie “Gentleman” – between the two funny comedians, Goundamani & Senthil.

Although it is not exactly one of the “greatest” comedy out there I think Senthil’s act of “thinking deep” in the scene:-

(Opening scene – Senthil sitting with a glass of tea in front, smoking heavily and looking deep in thoughts. Goundamani pass by but stops near Senthil but Senthil is still in deep thoughts)

Goundamani: Dey, what are you thinking?

(Senthil brushes away the question, still not realising that it is Goundamani who asked the question. But soon realise it after Goundamani take away his cigarette)

Goundamani: I have been watching you looking at the glass of tea since just now. Do you think you are a big researcher? Doing research on a single glass of tea?

Senthil: No brother…actually I am been thinking how to drink this tea

Goundami: Is it? Now look…take the glass like this, put it near the mouth like this and drink it like this

(Goundamani casually takes up the glass of tea and start drinking. Senthil gets nervous but keeps silent)

Goundamani: This is how you drink the tea

Senthil: You already drank the tea?

Goundamani: You have done your research? Now get off from this place

Senthil: You already drank the tea?

Goundamani: Of course

Senthil: Actually a lizard fell into the glass of tea, I took it out and been thinking whether to drink it or not.

(Goundamani starts to vomit out the tea)

Senthil: Brother, I heard that if you drink the tea where the lizard had fallen, you will die in the next 5 minutes. So, are you going to die?

(Goundamani spits out on Senthil)

  1. Thanks. Had a good laugh. Is it really true, that if you drink tea laced with a “palli” you die in 5 minutes. What about cockroaches, I see a lot, and now, I wonder. Ha..ha.

  2. I love both these guys. They were the only reason for me to watch tamil movies at one point in time. aarvidi, I’m not sure about lizards and roaches but you may want to give it a try……………LOL
