Plot of Theeppori Benny

In a recent interview, Arjun Ashokan said that he plays a representative of today’s youth in the movie, which centres around a father and son, essayed by Jagadeesh and himself, respectively. “It's not an out-and-out comedy, but it has humour. The 'theepori' in the title is the nickname of Jagadeesh chettan's character. When the movie begins, my character is just Benny but the incidents and the journey that make him borrow his father's nickname and make him Theeppori Benny is what the movie is all about,” said Arjun.

Jagadeesh, who has been seen in some good roles post his comeback two years ago, will once again play a different character. The veteran actor, who plays a non-corrupt communist leader in the film, said, “He is someone who doesn't own footwear because he has taken the vow that till the problems faced by everyone around him isn't solved or till their way of living doesn't improve, he won't wear them. He has a unique way of thinking. But this often leads to differences of opinion with his son, who urges him to make money and not keep losing what they have for the sake of other people.”
