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.
