Star Performances

Manoj K Sethu and Vinod Mulleria have done a phenomenal job.

Despite the odds against him, Manoj managed to create an engaging narrative. Vinod Mulleria has surprised the viewers with his impressive debut.

Analysis

When the film began, it looked as if ‘Tumbbad’ had got a unique twist. However, ‘Kuthood’ is more rooted in reality.

The film is about the troubles faced by folk artists, who are struggling to adapt to the modern environment. In some places, it reminds some viewers of the stories popularized by Mrinal Sen Mrinal Sen was a renowned and highly skilled India >> Read More... and Govind Nihalani Born on 19 August 1940, Govind Nihalani hails from >> Read More... through their movies. The film is not as majestic as Kantara, nor is it an edge of the seat thriller like ‘ Drishyam Click to look into! >> Read More... ’. Yet, the narrative for this film works wonders. Sometimes, it is good to be simple.

Nobody would believe it that this is just Vinod Mulleria’s first appearance. However, the way he has conducted himself as the helpless father in this entire movie is just outstanding. He more than makes up for the flaws in the movie. The supporting cast is equally good in their respective roles, with Santosh Keezhattoor marking his presence in style.

The concept on paper has been brilliantly executed by Manoj K Sethu. He is not only the director, but also the main cinematographer and editor of this film. Yet, he has handled almost every department efficiently. Pradeep Mandur has written a convincing story, that manages to keep the audiences intrigued for the first time.

The film is not completely flawless though. There are moments in the second half when the audience start losing their interest. The editing is also not up to the mark. This is why despite the runtime of the movie being less than 2 hours long, the viewers start getting bored in some sequences.

What’s There

  • A screenplay that hits the right notes
  • Great camerawork
  • Good performances by the supporting cast
  • Impressive act by Vinod Mulleria

What’s Not There

  • Not so impressive second half
  • Patchy execution
  • Average musical score

Verdict

‘Kuthood’ is a refreshing change. True, the movie is not without flaws. However, the execution of Manoj K Sethu is impressive. The acting performances are also equally good. Overall, the film is worth watching on the big screen!
