Vyabari (Translation: Trader) is a 2007 Indian Tamil-language science fiction comedy film directed by Sakthi Chidambaram. Produced by Shakti Chidambaram, the film stars S. J. Suryah, Tamanna Bhatia and Vadivelu.


Suryaprakash (S. J. Suryah) is a businessman who wants to become richer than Bill Gates, and in the process, he loses out on family and social life. So he tells a scientist Stephen Raj (Nassar) to make a clone of him so that he can keep concentrating on business and the clone can take his place at home. Savithri (Tamannaah) is a college girl named who does a research project on Suryaprakash and begins to love him. Suryaprakash is not interested in Savitri, but he marries her to make use of her cooking talent in order to widen his business. After singing and dancing with both models Namitha (Namitha) and Malavika), and humiliating his brother-in-law 'Digil' Paandi (Vadivelu), Suryaprakash finally understands the value of family after his mother (Seetha) dies.



It was rumoured that Malavika complained to Nadigar Sangam against SJ Suryah for alleged sexual harassment. Suryah later apologized for his behaviour.[2] Later Malavika clarified that incident was never happened.[3]


Critical reception

Indiaglitz wrote:"Sakthi Chidambaram has used the concept of cloning well to suit the commercial needs of the movie. Sakthi has narrated the tale of motherly sentiment laced with all commercial elements".[4] Sify criticized the film and claimed that "what the actor and his director was trying to convey through this film — a bit of sleaze and fun or steamy mother sentiments?".[5]
