Action King Arjun’s 1993 movie, Gentleman features Senthil as Babloo and Goundamani as Mani.

The facial expressions of both the veteran actors are top-notch in the movie that blend well with their witty dialogues.

Ullathai Allitha:

This 1996 movie of Karthik includes Goundamani and Senthil again in the cast list. They do not appear as a duo in ‘Ullathai Allitha’ but earn separate scenes. They jump into each other only when Raja, played by Karthik and Vasu, played by Goundamani steps into the rich man Viswanathan’s (Manivannan) house. Senthil is the manager of Viswanathan and as the plot moves, he turns into an antagonist by kidnapping his boss towards the climax. However, this rom-com movie of Tamil Cinema is loved by vast audience.


The most popular movie of Tamil Cinema, Indian, roped Goundamani and Senthil in 1996. Director Shankar portrays Senthil’s character, Paneerselvam as a smart RTO officer whereas Goundamani’s Subbiah character comes under him. The duo has enough screen space in the movie. The banter comedy featuring in the movie, between Goundamani and Senthil wins amidst the audience. Visualizing Tom and Jerry in real life humans through their characters in ‘Indian’!
