Kutty Love Story

– Review

The anthology ‘Kutty Story’ directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, Vijay, Venkat Prabhu and Nalan Kumarasamy has released and all the four stories try to offer an insight into love. Here is what the anthology is all about

Aadal Paadal:

The film deals with the complications involved in extra-marital affairs, and also talks about the chauvinistic attitude of men.

With some quirky scenes and an interesting screenplay, Aadal Paadal is easily the best of the lot of this anthology.

Vijay Sethupathi’s performance is brilliant and makes us forget the flaws that come with this genre. Aditi Balan, who made a fantastic debut in Tamil cinema with Aruvi, has lived the character.  The writing is typical of Nalan’s films – characters who are on the grey side of the law, twists where you least expect them, and a bizarre plot.

Edhirpaara Mutham:

This movie has Gautham Vasudev Menon touch written all over it. He has stayed true to his genre and manages to bring the audience into his world.

Aadhi (Vinoth Krishnan) and Mrinalini (Amala Paul) are best friends. Though they get along well and spend most of the time together, Aadhi and Mrinalini believe that there is an invisible line between love and friendship and they shouldn’t cross it for any reason.

However, the events that unfold in the later stage of his life destroy his theory and make him understand that there is love between the two. But is he too late to realise this?

Avanum Naanum:

Director A L Vijay comes up with a strong premise in Avanum Naanum. Preethi (Megha Akash), a final-year student, discovers that she is three months pregnant and informs her boyfriend Vikram (Amitash Pradhan) about the same.

Within a few minutes, unfortunate circumstances put Vikram in non-reachable mode forcing Preethi to seek an abortion. What happens to them in the future is  what Avanum Naanum is about. Megha Akash’s performance is laudable and makes for a decent watch.

Logam:

Logam revolves around the life of a gamer Varun (Adam), who tries to find the whereabouts of his girlfriend Eve (Sangeetha), whom he met in a video game. The film begins with an interview of Varun, one of the top gamers in the city and the first to complete the game called Logam.

He credits his girlfriend for all the success and says that he dedicates the victory to her. But who is this girlfriend? The twist in the latter half of the film is something unexpected and seems to justify the errors made in the first few scenes.

Review: 3.5 out of 5
