Kalathil Santhippom

– Review

The story revolves around two friends, Ashok (Jiiva) and Anand (Arulnithi), who have contrasting personalities. While the former is a care-free person who doesn’t believe in falling in love, the latter is short-tempered and is yet to come to terms with a heartbreak.
They work in a finance company and are professional kabaddi players as well. Their parents are looking for a suitable life partners for them, and their side-kicks (played by Balasaravanan and Robo Shankar), too, have been encouraging them to get hitched.
One day, Anand’s matchmaking function goes for a toss when a prank played by Ashok becomes serious. Ashok tries his best to unite Anand and Kavya (Manjima Mohan), with whom the latter’s wedding was supposed to take place.
However, Anand’s decision surprises Ashok, Kavya and their friends. What happens further to their lives when Sofia (Priya Bhavani Shankar) enters the plot forms the rest of the story.
Director N Rajasekhar has given more attention to screenplay and writing lead characters, and the film emerges a neat entertainer.
Jiiva and Arulnithi’s matured performances offer a lot of support to the film, and in a way shoulders the film throughout.
 Thankfully, the film’s romantic portions don’t seem force-fitted and appears on screen organically. Manjima Mohan on the other hand gets a meaty role and she is convincing. A few of the supporting characters could have had properly fleshed out arcs, but it’s forgivable.
Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background score complements the film well but the same cannot be said of the songs which miss the Yuvan touch. Abinandhan Ramanujam’s cinematography gave the film what it exactly needed. He has done a neat job and the visuals offer a rich look to the film. Little more attention on the writing would have elevated the film to a great extent.

Rating: 3 out of 5
