'Kutty': A feel-good love triangle!
'Kutty' is not the regular kind of entertainer Dhanush does.
With this film, Dhanush is also back with Jawahar, who had made him successfully tread the family sentiment path in 'Yaradee Nee Mohini'. 'Kutty' is essentially about how the hero handles a one-sided love affair and whether his faith ultimately pays off or not.
For once, Dhanush plays the regular college guy with average looks. Shriya, a stunner in the same college, is the centre of attention. While Kutty (Dhanush) falls for Geethanjali (Shriya Saran), she is dating a rich guy (Sameer Dattani).
Kutty's innocent, fun-loving and easy-going attitude makes him the most popular student in collage and this makes Sameer insecure.
And then other problems creep up. Samer's father, an MP, opposes his proposal to marry Geetha, as he has plans to use his son's marriage as a political weapon. Kutty takes up the task of uniting the lovers and he succeeds in the task. Slowly Geetha feels the depth of Kutty's selfless love and she finally makes her choice.
The love triangle involving Dhanush, Shriya and Semeer has been intricately woven and could be the biggest strength of the movie. The screenplay, however, lacks pace. The romance among the three fails to connect with the audience, thanks to a bland narration.
Dhanush has tried his best to inject life into the proceedings with his comic sense. He breathes life into his character Kutty, a simple, shy guy who yearns for love. He is the major factor that makes the film click and one just can't imagine anyone else in this role.
Shriya Saran has definitely got a welcome break from her glamorous image. She actually looks really cute and shows that she can act! Veteran Radha Ravi is his usual commanding self. Meghna Naidu is impressive in the item number.
Without being technically brilliant, the film fulfils the minimum criteria for an entertainer. It has a different storyline, fun-filled script and awesome performances by the lead actors. But the music is a big letdown.
The director has tried hard to make a Bollywood-like feel-good romantic flick and has almost succeeded. If he had managed to maintain the pace in the second half, the film would have been a far better experience.
