Kaatrin Mozhi Movie Review: The Magic Of The Original Hypnotizes Everyone
Kaatrin Mozhi Movie Review: The remake of 2017 hit Tumhaari Sulu features Jyothika stepping into the shoes of Vidya Balan and there have been a lot of changes done in the remake as well. Check out the review...
Tumhaari Sulu was one of the best flicks ever made by Bollywood which was a comeback for Vidya Balan who had a rough year for the past 4 years where her films were failing miserably. The film went on winning multiple awards and Vidya Balan won the best actress for her portrayal. Now, Jyothika steps into the remake of the film which is titled Kaatrin Mozhi.
The film revolves around Viji (Jyothika) who is a housewife based in the suburbs of Chennai along with her husband Baala (Vidharth) and son. Despite not completing high school, she knows how to live the life to the fullest ranging from winning the Lemon-N-Spoon race, winning different contests hosted on TV to organizing community activities. This earns a positive vibe from husband and son but sarcasm from her father and her "white-collar" twin sisters who mock her aspirations.
One fine day, while listening to the radio she becomes a winner in the lucky draw where she gets a pressure cooker as the prize. After getting the prize, she spots a vacancy for a post of an RJ and she impresses Maryam (Lakshmi Manchu) the radio station manager with her unique style of mimicry. She ends up getting the job of a late-night RJ who speaks in a seductive tone, which causes dismay to Baalu who listens to the show.
The only thing which is the heart of the film is the simplicity which was there in the original and was given by the director Radha Mohan in this flick. It also gives a peek into the contemporary middle-life in urban India.
We had reduced Ticket Price for this movie by Rs.75.
The middle-class nuances are the common man's problems, highs and lows of life and a sense of togetherness which gives the audience a real-life feeling which was properly captured in the camera.
Apart from the story, there are many myriad sets of characters who play a very important role in the film ranging from the radio station's receptionist who gets angry with the catering company manager for not giving decent food and the shopkeeper who gets hypnotized by her seductive voice on the phone.
Jyothika has managed to create an aura with her presence in the film. The best part about her is that she manages to keep all of us engaged with her presence throughout the film. Lakshmi Manchu carries on with her body language of a radio station manager and Vidharth blends perfectly in the role of a frequently harassed employee in the film.
Simbu's presence in the film brings magic in the screenplay and I personally loved that portion when she speaks to a senior citizen on the phone which states that not everyone is sleazy and immoral.
AH Kaashif has made a really good job in composing the music especially the one which explores Jyothika's character and the Jimmki Kammal sequence in the film is quite different and fun to watch as well.
Overall, this film is a perfect one to watch this weekend and you will come out of the theatre with a smile once the film finishes.
