Director: Saravana Rajan
Jai-Swati Reddy’s Telugu dubbing movie”Kulfi”, (Vada curry in Tamil) which hit the screens today, has received positive reviews from critics.
“Kulfi” is a comedy thriller film written and directed by debutant Saravana Raja, a former assistant of Venkat Prabhu. The film, produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri’s “Meeka Entertainment”, has Swati Reddy (female lead), RJ Balaji, Kasthuri and Arul Doss in pivotal roles. Sunny Leone makes a special appearance in a song sequence along with Jai.
The first half of the film revolves around the plight of a medical representative, Sathish (Jai) whose outdated cell phone is a source of embarrassment. So when he chances upon an i-phone at a snack shop, he doesn’t think twice before flicking it. Though he doesn’t regret the act, his elder brother, an honest auto driver, wants the former to return the phone. Reluctantly, Sathish tries to find the owner, but only courts trouble with a gang dealing with expired medicines. How he extricates himself from their clutches forms the crux of the film. There is also a small track of romance woven in between, involving Sathish and Naveena (Swathi), a techie.
It’s a tailor made role for Jai and thankfully the actor does not remind us of any of his earlier films. He emotes well and his dialogue delivery has improved a lot. RJ Balaji elevates to the next level in comical supporting roles. Swathi looks good and has limited scope to perform. Arudoss and Kasthuri who has acted as his wife fit the bill.
First of all Kulfi is smartly packaged. The director starts with the introduction of each characters and takes time to settle down till the interval, of course till then we have a beautiful picturized Sunny Leone song and cool love story of Jai-Swathi along with some comic one liners . Once the director gets into the main theme of revealing the suspense he doesn’t have any confusion, the film moves at rapid pace and with the running time of just 2 hours and 2 mins the film is definitely engaging
The movie gains some momentum towards the intermission, and a twist gives the much needed vigour to the screenplay. The second half has some engaging moments, but the climax again becomes too weak. Overall, the movie works in parts, due to inconsistent pacing and screenplay.
The debutant film-maker has tried to infuse humour in the script that deliberates on the misuse of expired medicines meant for kids and heart patients, but it falls flat on most occasions. It’s good to taste once.
