Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal movie review: Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara film is a colossal mess

Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal movie cast: Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara and Samantha Ruth Prabhu

Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal movie score:  2 stars

Director Vignesh Shivan’s newest romantic comedy Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal is a full misfire. It presents little or no however calls for loads of generosity from the viewers to forgive Vignesh’s sequence of miscalculations in what appears to be a rush job of a movie.

Ranjankudi Anbarasu Murugesa Boopathy Oohoondhiran aka Rambo (Vijay Sethupathi) is a chick magnet. Why? Simple, as a result of he’s poor however kind-hearted. He lacks appeal however he’s compassionate. And above all, he can battle to guard the honour and respect of ladies. He’s essentially the most cliched model of a mainstream hero, who gained’t survive the real-world situations if he’s left alone.

Rambo is satisfied that he has been cursed. He is touted as a manifestation of unhealthy luck. In truth, unhealthy luck is his superpower. The lovers are aching to go on a jolly bike journey, the college youngsters are working late for exams. And these folks can’t go about their business because it’s raining cats and canines. So Rambo decides to step up and save the day. By merely stepping exterior and gazing on the sky, the rain involves a full cease. He someway has managed to hack into the consciousness of the cosmic and manipulate it at his whim.

It takes a lot of big-heartedness to purchase into the premise of this film. After a few obnoxious twists and turns, narrated by way of chaotically stitched scenes that lack any creativity, literary or comedic worth, Rambo finds Kanmani Ganguly (Nayanthara) and Khatija Begum (Samantha Ruth Prabhu) able to kill or be killed for his love. Both girls search the safety of Rambo as they’re disadvantaged of a higher possibility. Vignesh form of creates the Rambo-is-the-last-man-alive-in-the-world scenario. And these girls find yourself taking the bait.

There is no chemistry amongst Rambo, Kanmani and Khatija . It’s unclear why both Kanmani or Khatija would want to be locked in a romanceless relationship with Rambo. He can’t even look into the eyes of those girls correctly whereas talking with them. And he’s very unhealthy at romance or romantic gestures that sweep a girl off her toes. And but, Kanmani and Khatija compete towards one another for Rambo’s affection.

Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal is Vignesh’s wishful dream about a Sumaar Moonji Kumar changing into a chick magnet. Sumaar Moonji Kumar, that means a mean Joe, is the title of the character performed by Vijay Sethupathi in Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara (2013). He had performed the position of a stalker within the movie. But, he was handed off as innocent as a result of he’s humorous. Kumar is in love with a woman who is out of his league and he can not take a trace, even when the woman he’s crushing on enlists the providers of goons to beat him up so he would cease troubling her.

Vignesh has dreamt up a completely senseless romantic comedy across the thought of what if Sumaar Moonji Kumar turns into so irresistible that essentially the most good wanting, sturdy and self-reliant women blindly commit themselves to his whims? That’s all there is to this film.

This film has been designed to attraction to the bottom frequent denominator because it expects us to crack up at double entendre dialogues like, “Ona kalyanam panitan ena panitan (he married you and slept with me).” Or clownish debate about which is higher between almonds and pistachios, allegories for marriage and intercourse respectively.

There are solely a couple of scenes which have some stage of fulfilling humour. And these scenes have Redin Kingsley in them. Especially, within the scene when he questions his captor’s judgement on losing petrol on him. And it strikes a chord given the costs of gasoline are skyrocketing.

The latent nature of grownup comedy on this movie is a large flip off. This film goals to play into the wild fantasies of a lovelorn man by subtly sexualising the main girls. But, it’s neither clear humour nor an outright grownup comedy. It’s a mess. The primary motive is Vignesh’s indecisiveness. He needs to maintain the film protected for folks to observe it with household. And on the similar time, sprinkle it with simply sufficient double that means dialogues and scenes so that folks get the trace. It additionally needs to be a mixture of director C. S. Amudhan’s Thamizh Padam, a spoof film, and Vignesh’s 2015 hit Naanum Rowdy Dhaan.

You can’t have it each methods.
