Director Pandiraj has assembled a battalion of known actors, led by Karthi, in his latest film Kadai Kutty Singam. It has been a long time since we last saw a family drama with a rural setting, having a noted hero in the lead.
Plot – Perunazhi Gunasingam (Karthi) is a proud young farmer. He belongs to a large joint family, with two 'mora ponnus' Chellamma (Priya Bhavani Shankar) and Aandaal (Arthana) vying for his attention with the intention of marrying him. When Gunasingam falls in love with a girl outside his family, Kannukiniyaal (Sayyeshaa), all hell breaks loose. The family is already quite dysfunctional and this makes things worse. How Gunasingam goes about sorting out all the tension in the family, brings them all together again and gets Kannukiniyaal forms the crux of the tale.
Final Word: Kadai Kutty Singam ought to work better with the family audiences and those from a rural background. Wish the mush had been kept in check!
