    Kutti Puli Review

    By Ramchander
    Sasikumar realised his strength and weakness at the early stage of his career. As as result, he always choose to make a film with rural settings. His biggest hits were Subramaniapuram, Naadodigal and his last film Sundarapandian. And it is obvious that he prefers a rural-backdrop film than making a movie for urban audience. Has he succeeded once again with Kutti Pulti? Continue reading the review to know it...

    It is said that improvisation is the need of the hour in cinema, but Sasikumar seems to be pushing it under the carpet by continuing to do mass-appeal films. He may be successful, but he should not forget the fact that success will not stay with him forever if he continues to make similar films.

    Kutti Puli (Sasikumar) was brought up single-handedly by his mother after he lost his father at a young age in a local gang rivalry. His mother does not want him to be like his father. Unfortunately, he does grow up to be like his father and even picks up the same traits that got his father killed.

    No matter how hard his mother tries, her efforts only prove futile because Puli lives by his own principles. However, she believes if she could get him married then probably he may turn responsible and take control of his life. But Puli is against marriage because he believes that with so many people who wish to see him dead, his future wife may have live like his mother, who was left behind by his father.

    What makes Puli change his mind and eventually agree to marry? This forms the rest of the story. The film very subtly highlights the two most important women in our lives, mother and wife, who have very pivotal parts to play. Even though the film is a commercial entertainer at heart, debutant director Muthaiah has played the sentimental card extremely well to keep the audiences hooked through certain emotional moments.

    Thankfully, he doesn't make this whole mother and wife analogy sound too preachy, and uses it far too occasionally in the film. You will also notice that the film is high on elements commonly found in Sasikumar's films such as friendship, revenge, family, witty one-liners and lots of blood and gore. While all elements have been used appropriately at regular intervals, one doesn't find anything new to be excited about.

    The film struggles in the second half and unnecessarily gets dragged by songs and few cliched fight sequences. Kutti Puli also reminds us of the fact that Sasi is no longer an actor, but a commercial hero with mass following because he now has a typical hero entry scene welcomes by hoots and applauds.

    Sasikumar is again seen in an angry young man avatar with a good side that needs to be awakened. Even though he played his role with ease and confidence, he is starting to get repetitive with his choice of films. While it needs to be accepted that his core audiences are folks from B and C centers in Tamil Nadu, that doesn't allow him to discard multiplex goers.

    Saranya Ponvannan hardly has any part to play besides crying in every other scene, while Prabha, who makes a comeback after a long hiatus, has an equally unsatisfying part. Lakshmi Menon plays her part well, while the rest of the cast goes unnoticed with short screen presence.
