Radha Bharathy

It's yet another movie starring Jai Akash --- almost the third in as many months. He has combined with Pranathi once again after Gurudeva. Radha Bharathy, who directed Vaigasi Porandachu starring Prashanth about a decade ago, has wielded the megaphone for Katrullavarai.

The time spent away from films seems to have rusted Radha Bharathy's abilities. The film's story is trite and the treatment is very banal.

It is the story of an actress Narmadha (Pranathy) who is caught between her car driver Bala (Jai Akash) and an ardent fan Burma Bala (Suresh).

The car driver is a mentor of sorts for her.  Narmada hates Bala, but her father (Rajesh) insists on Bala staying in the house.

The rest of the story is told in a flashback where everything is explained including Bala's stammering and Narmada's 'selective amnesia'.

The story has good potential. But, unfortunately, incoherent screenplay lets down the movie.

Jai Akash looks dull and weak while Pranathy lacks any screen presence. The newcomer Suresh does nothing to impress the audience. Vadivelu's comedy too doesn't work.

Bharani has come up with a couple of good tunes.

But nothing can save the movie as the director seems to have shot himself in the foot.

Rating: 0 / 5.0
