Ranjith's latest directorial venture Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty is one of the most-hyped movies of the year 2013. Prior to its release, the ensemble cast of Malayalam superstars has soared up the filmgoers' expectations to sky high. But the movie seems to have failed to meet the expectations.
Mathukutty (Mammootty) is an un-employed NRI, who is
settled with his family in Germany. He is assigned with a
responsibility to invite the leading superstars in Malayalam -
Mohanlal and Dileep, for a cultural show that is being organised by
the German Malayalis. Mathukutty comes to Kottayam to invite the
stars. Later on, Mathukutty gets involved in public affairs
On reaching Kerala, Mathukkutty meets his old flame, Rosy. She
is one of the chorus singers in the church. Mathukutty and his
native friends goes to meet the leading stars in the industry. They
meet actor Dileep on the sets of his upcoming movie. All are
surprised to meet a star so close and express their gratitude to
Mathukutty for getting them such a chance.
With some good and punching humour, the movie happens to end in
a good way. Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathykutty also has some
good songs in it. Of them, one song has been very much acclaimed by
the viewers. Rest of the cast have done justice to their roles. But
they seem to be unnoticed as the whole story revolves around only

Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty
Ranjith and Mammootty have rocked the viewers with the last
offering Pranchiyettan And the Saint. But they have failed
to repeat the same magic in Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty.
Especially, Ranjith's magic is missing throughout the film.
Mammootty's new look in the movie is the main highlight. He has
done justice to his role. The moment when Mammootty and Mohanlal
make their screen presence, everything goes on a high.
Though Dileep is seen only in a cameo role, the film has showed
the full potential of the actor. With some good humour, the actor
has maintained his usual style of attracting his viewers.
Nedumudi Venu is seen enacting the role of father as seen in his
previous movies. He has done justice to his role.
Two superstars - Dileep and Mohanlal are seen in cameo roles in
Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty.
The film has a huge star cast, which includes Nedumudi Venu,
Balachandra Menon, Siddique, Harisree Ashokan, Suresh Krishna, P
Balachandran, Balachandran Chullikad, Prem Prakash, Muthumani,
Krishna Prabha and Kaviyoor Ponnamma.
Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty is shot both in Kerala and
The movie has been rendered beautifully by the director. With
some good humour and dialogue delivery, the movie is worth. All
charcaters have done justice to their roles. Music is average and
has been composed by Shahabas Aman.
The dragging narration in the second half of the movie bores the
audience. The climax is predictable and lacks a punch.
Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty is an above average movie.
With some good humour and star presence, the movie is sure to be a
