Given its premise and its possibilities, Kattapava Kanom could have been wackier, still, in its present form, the film is an amusing diversion. The plot revolves around a Vaastu fish, the titular Kattappa, which gets stolen from its owner Vanjaram (Mime Gopi), a gangster who strongly believes it to be his lucky charm, and ends up at the house of Pandian (Sibiraj), whose string of misfortunes since birth has made his own father call him Bad Luck Pandi. He and his wife Meena (Aishwarya Rajesh), decide to keep the fish, just because their neighbour, a little girl being raised by her dad, believes it to be lucky.
Meanwhile, a trio of criminals (Kaali Venkat, Thirumurugan and Jayakumar) places Pandi and Meena under ‘house arrest’ believing that they were told the hiding place of Rs 4 crore by their now-dead accomplice. And Vajaram employs an amateur detective (Dindigul Sravanan) to trace the whereabouts of his Kattappa.
