Kuttimaa – A Beautiful Journey2 min read

First things first – This is not a review. I just wanted to share my happiness after watching this movie over and over again.  Yeah I will call it a movie as it has got all the elements to make it in big screen – A pleasing background score, picturesque places, stunning visuals and excellent acting especially from the lead actors.

When Romance is the go-to genre all around the world, it is a brave attempt from the director to pick up a story that revolves around the relationship between a grandma and the grandson. A lot of work has gone into details as the story brings out the beauty of the village as well as the families that gets set for a wedding. Our grandparents love pulling our legs and that forms the crux of the story.

When i was a small kid and when i asked my grandpa to buy me a ball, he would go to the shop and when he comes back, he will hand me a packet of milk and say ” Nee idhana da keta ” ( Meaning : This is what you asked ). Then after 5 to 10 mins of continuous arguing, he will slip his hand into his trouser pocket and pull out the ball which i asked for. This will usually be followed by laughter.

This movie reminded me of him so much. The lead actors K.R Rangamma and Yeskay Durai have done a fabulous job by portraying a naughty grandma and a modern grandson. The natural and casual acting by Yeskay throughout the movie and the final dialogue by Yeskay will stand a testimony to his acting for the days to come.  Though we have become different after our formal education and corporate atmosphere, there is a still an active part of us that longs to be with our roots. This movie appeals to that part of ours.

The songs were resonating the mood perfectly and special credit goes to the lyricist as the words have been wonderfully chosen. I especially love the scene at the temple when Yeskay wants to know how is he related to Shruthi – the expressions of Kuttima before the conversation starts is hilarious.

This is one movie which you can watch again and again to remember your good old past or to cherish the present or maybe shape a better future with your loved grandparents.

This movie sends across a strong message to everyone and definitely for many years to come, it will be

” K for Kuttima ”

A Standing ovation for the team 🙂
