Chinni Jayanth has earned a reputation for his comical roles on silvers screen. But the actor has opted to go the opposite way in his directorial venture Kanal Neer. He has rendered a serious film that dwells on friendship. Besides wielding the megaphone, the veteran comedian has essayed the lead role in the movie and has come up trumps.
