Uthamaputhiran Movie Review

‘Uthamaputhiran’, another film from Dhanush-Jawahar combo, has come out as a family entertainer with interesting sequences and comedy in abundance.

Jawahar has once again delivered a perfectly light and feel-good entertainment.  Dhanush plays Siva, a happy-go-lucky guy, hailing from a large family, who can go to any extent to help his friends. During one such act of help, he abducts bride from the marriage hall with his friends’ help to find out only later that they had ‘abducted’ the wrong girl. Pooja (Genelia), who was going through a forced and bitter marriage, doesn’t complain and feels happier.

Siva saves her from the clutches of her greedy relatives and takes her to his large family on some false pretext. Pooja’s bubbly character wins over everyone in the household. Trouble starts brewing when both Siva’s warring uncles (Chinna Muthu Gounder and Periya Muthu Goundar), who don’t see eye-to-eye on most issues want to make Pooja their daughter-in-law.

Siva then enacts a full fledged drama using ‘Emotional’ Ekambaram (Vivek), the accountant of both families, to deceive both families. His drama makes wonders among everyone and culminates in an emotional climax. All is well that ends well.

Dhanush gets a tailor made role once again and scores well. te boy is charm personified and his handling of comedy by underplaying is commendable. Dhanush adds deft, little touches to his role that make all the difference. The actor has matured over the years and it show.  Genelia as Pooja looks cute and acts well. But she too gets a tailor made role that gives little challenge to her acting prowess.

Vivek has delivered a stunning performance. His comedy along with Dhanush enlivens the entire theatre. The ‘subconscious memory power’ episode is hilarious.

K. Bhagyaraj, Ambika, Sundarrajan, Ashish Vidyarthi, Ashish Vidyarthi, Rajendran and Mayilsami have made their presence felt in a film that gives sufficient screen space for each character.

Vijay Antony’s music is passable while Balasubramaniyan’s camera work is excellent.

On the flip side, the film is a bit lengthy and drags in the second half. The screenplay and story are almost predictable. The way the villain families change their minds is quite unbelievable.

Despite such flaws ‘Uthamaputhiran’ has come out as a perfect family entertainer.

  1. Dhanush-Jawahar Mithran started off their remake mania with ‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’, a remake of brother Selvaraghavan’s ‘Aadavari Mathlaadu Arthale Vaeru’, which was a blockbuster. Their next film ‘Kutty’ (remake of Allu Arjun’s ‘Arya’) was an average grosser. And now, they’re back with the remake of Telugu movie ‘Ready’, which has every element of family entertainer to attract the universal audiences. With a running length of 2 hours 45 minutes, the film is full of zest and vigour.

    Siva (Dhanush) belongs to a family of very rich family background that is well known as the best industrialists in town. Well pampered by his family members, Siva has no worries in life. On helping his cousin girl elope with boyfriend right on her marriage day, he is sent away from the house. Though Siva is forced out of the house, his uncle (Bhagyaraj) regularly sends him money through his friend without anyone’s knowledge. At a point, when Siva sets out to help his friend marry his girlfriend. Unfortunately, he kidnaps a girl with wrong identity and she happens to be Pooja (Genelia D Souza), with whom he had fell in love at first sight before. Soon as Pooja gains back consciousness, he learns that she isn’t interested with marriage and was forced to wed her cousin boy merely for the sake of property that belongs to her. Rest of the film is how Siva wins the heart of Pooja and marries her with the blessings of family members.

    Jawahar Mithran has done justice to the original script as he makes sure of amusing the audiences from beginning till end.

    The biggest assets of the film are huge star-casts. Especially Vivek’s portion during second half tickles your funny bones. Characterized as ‘Emotional Ekambaram’, his role is so serious and confused, but makes sure of keep us laughing throughout the show. Dhanush doesn’t strain himself a lot as the scenes are so light. It’s really puzzling to spot him serious while shaking legs in all the songs. Couldn’t he smile? Genelia D’ Souza looks pretty, but lacks the liveliness that was very much prevalent in the original version ‘Ready’. Bhagyaraj, Rekha, Ambika, Srinath, K.R., Mayilsamy and dozens of supporting actors have done justice to their roles. Nice to spot Mayilsamy as an active man as almost all his films featured him as drunkard…

    Musical score by Vijay Anthony is average. ‘Kan Irandil’ looks similar to ‘Sutthuthey’ song in ‘Paiyaa’ both in terms of visual and tunes. Cinematography by Balasubramaniam is extraordinary. Editing is neat and art works are appreciable.

    The major plus of this film is that the second half is very lengthy, yet has lots of humorous quotients. Even the sentimental factors are expressed with mirthful means.

    On the whole, ‘Uthamaputhiran’ is a neat family entertainer and has more probabilities of winning the box office race for this Diwali.

    What works: Original script by Gopi Mohan, Screenpaly, star-casts, Cinematography, Vivek’s comedy

    What doesn’t work: Lengthy first half but okay, songs picturing, choreography, discontinuities between shots

    Verdict: Go for it

    Producer: Mohan Apparao, T Ramesh

    Director: Mithran R Jawahar

    Star-Casts: Dhanush, Genelia D’ Souza, K. Bhagyaraj, Vivek and many others

    Music Director: Vijay Antony

    Cinematography: Balasubramaniam
