Kutti puli, one of those rarest commercial films that makes you cry.
7 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Kutti puli

Rating: 2.5/5

Action Drama

Debut director Muthaiah clearly making a mark with a clean commercial film. The film is swift with its comic sequences and the audience could pick it up though it was scattered into pieces and widely plot- abberative. The director successfully delivered his script, meeting the expectations of the crowd. When everyone was awaiting Sasikumar's next directional venture (after his trend-setting film subramaniapuram) the director, started to substantiate his acting career with consecutive successes. The film is neatly paced with humor, romance and sentiments, striking a perfect balance for a commercial film. And needless to quote, Saranya's phenomenal performance is a vital contribution, helping the film to attain some quality. She is the best character artiste in and around the industry not without a reason. Inevitably, we could see the concordances of another trend-changing work, Paruthiveeran, in the base plot of the film. The opening scene with the death of Lal due to regional disputes and the transition of his son in the village, visualization of the songs, the actor's mannerisms and yet a number of factors in the film purely reminds us of Ameer's classic. Though its very tedious to direct a reality film in a rural backdrop without any correlation of two great classics of modern times (subramaniyapuram and paruthiveeran), the film-maker has given his best shot. Kudos to the legendary directors Bala and Balaji Sakthivel who emphasized on reality films and literally persuaded hundreds of films and film-makers through their evergreen-classics Sethu and Kadhal, that changed the long- prevailing scenario of South Indian cinema. That was his profound film making style that swayed number of classics which has been luxuriating our industry.

Credits to the casting team for a bunch of perfect pick for an antagonist and the villainous crew. Music helping the sentimental touch in a great way but credits to Saranya for a perfect and mature execution. Usage of too many old songs in the film hinders the pace of the script and tend to annoy after a few occasions which is a major and evident flaw. The stunt sequence of silambam (an ancient Dravidian martial art) is a treat to action aficionados. The perfect placement for the interval creates the necessary hype for the film to a great extent. The visuals of the song, supporting the introduction of Laxmi menon is another major flaw where its neither imagination nor sequential. However, the controversial pair is successful for the second time in terms of so-called media-chemistry. Most importantly, the twist in the tale that led to an unpredictable climax is unique for the gallery would have been anticipating Saranya's death way ahead. The text slide at the end of the film showcased the theme and makes us wonder how the director conveyed it eventually.

Sasikumar, being an irrevocable brand in the film fraternity and also among all classes of audience, sensibly realized his responsibility of satisfying them and achieved it too. Kutti puli, one of those rarest commercial films that makes you cry. The actor who has also transformed into a cult figure in cinema, should also consider to retrieve to direct as the people are waiting for his signature films.
