Tamil anthology film Kutty Story released today (February 12, 2021) theatrically. With the inclusion of 4 segments directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, AL Vijay, Venkat Prabhu and Nalan Kumaraswamy, the film, in general, revolves around the concept of love and relationships in life.
Gautham's part is titled Ethirpara Mutham and stars Amala Paul and the director himself in the lead roles. Vijay's kutty story (short story) has been titled Avanum Naanum, which features Amitash Pradhan and Megha Akash in key roles. Logam is Venkat Prabhu's part that has actors Varun and Sakshi Agarwal. The part directed by Nalan featuring Vijay Sethupathi and Aditi Balan is titled Aadal Paadal. Backed by Ishari K Ganesh under his home production banner Vels Film Entertainment, the film has been garnering huge appreciation from the cine-goers.
Though the concept of the film has been compared to the Amazon Prime Video anthology film Putham Pudhu Kaalai, the acting chops of the actors and unique storylines of each part are being praised by the audience.
Kutty Story has music composed by (for each section) Karthik, Madhu R, Premgi Amaren and Edwin Louis. The cinematographers for the anthology film includes Manoj Paramahamsa, Arvind Krishna, Sakthi Saravanan and N Shanmuga Sundaram. Though the makers were earlier planning to release the film on an OTT platform, the team later decided to go for a theatrical release.
Well, as the film garners a positive response from the audience, let us see what Twitterati have to say about the film.

Caught #KuttyStory. It's good have Nalan Kumaraswamy back, and GVM picks an interesting premise that's not really discussed. The rest didn't work for me at all. Also, what lovely performances from VJS, Aditi Balan and Amala Paul.
