Uppu Karuvaadu, prior to its release, had gathered some expectation only because of its director, Radha Mohan. Has the Mozhi film-maker managed to deliver the goods through Uppu Karuvaadu? Continue reading our movie review to know.
Uppu Karuvaadu Plot:
The story of Uppu Karuvaadu is nothing new to Tamil cinema. A director like Radha Mohan handling such a hoary script comes across as a surprise.
Karunakaran is an aspiring director and is desperate to find himself a bankroller who can fund his film. With the help of Mayilswamy, he manages to find a producer, played by MS Bhaskar.
Though he agrees to finance his project, he lays in front of them a condition. His daughter, played by Nandita Swetha is a wannabe actress, who knows nothing about acting.
Karunakaran is put in a spot of bother as the producer decides to launch his daughter into the film industry through Karunakaran's movie. What follows is an attempt to turn Nandita into an actress by Karunakaran and his team.
Stand out performances comes from Karunakaran and MS Bhaskar, for they have done complete justice to their respective characters.
Nandita Swetha too comes up with a believable performance, but in parts. She might often make you feel that she could've done a bit more in order to provide that complete performance. Other supporting actors have done their part neatly.
The only lifesaver in the entire technical department are the movie's dialogues. Dialogues have worked like a charm throughout, making Uppu Karuvaadu bearable.
While the cinematography looks very much amateurish, background score too fails to elevate some of the slow paced scenes this movie has to offer.
With an ordinary storyline, Uppu Karuvaadu cries for an engaging screenplay, but unfortunately that's not what you experience in this flick. Screenplay, both in the first as well as second half, is just too slow for one's liking. Comedy has worked in parts, largely because of the dialogues.
Though it is apparent that Radha Mohan wanted to deliver a clean comedy entertainer through Uppu Karuvaadu, his selection of script and the way this film is treated comes across as a baffler.
