Thalsamayam Oru Penkutty, directed by T K Rajeev Kumar has Nithya Menon, Swetha Menon, Unni Mukundan and Siddique play the lead role. Thalsamayam Oru Penkutty is a contemporary take on reality shows. People who are addicted to reality shows (especially Hindi show audience) like Bigg Boss and UTV Bindass' Khan Sisters will be able to relate best to this craze of reality shows.
The concept of weaving a plot around a reality show is a brilliant idea. However, it is very important that the script is extremely engaging with crisp editing and outstanding performance. However, director T K Rajeev Kumar lets you down tremendously. Moreover, the film could have been made shorter by at least 15-20 minutes. Thalsamayam Oru Penkutty gets extremely monotonous, especially in the second half. You are then waiting for the movie to just get over!
What's most ridiculous is that the NRI couple watching the show with a glass of wine, a group of friends who have come shopping and a guy exercising on treadmill is shown doing the same for one whole month!
