Kadaikutty Singam review: From the time Pandiraj’s Kadaikutty Singam went on floors, it was tipped as a family movie set in village backdrop. Staying true to its genre and expectations, the story revolves around a big family, headed by Ranasingam (Sathyaraj). Though a father of five girls, he is a little upset about not having a son with his wife (Viji Chandrasekhar). He gets married to another lady (Bhanupriya), and hopes of fulfilling his wish if being a father to a baby boy even in his 50s.
One day, his wish does come true. His son Gunasingam, though is not very educated, goes on to become a farmer as he grows up. Two girls from his own family (played by Priya Bhavani Shankar and Arthana) and their respective parents wish to get them married to Gunasingam. However, he falls in love with another girl (Sayyeshaa) against everyone’s expectations in the family. This leads to several disputes and misunderstanding among the family members, and eventually many of them start disliking Gunasingam.
On the other hand, a few in the town who always aimed at Gunasingam’s down fall, utilises the situation. Will Gunasingam get married to his lady love? The film is a watchable fare for those who love drama, which has ample emotional sequences built on family bonding. Having said that, there are moments where one feel the intensity of melodrama is a bit high, a little exaggerated.
