What happens when a youngster who has already gone through many disasters in his directorial career is on the last hope, when a fish business baron offers him a project? He has a fabulous script bounded, but is surrounded by varieties of ridiculous characters? Will he manage to get through all the hurdles and achieve his dreams? Presenting a simple plot with some hilarious and realistic appeal, Radha Mohan (Maker of evergreen entertainers like Mozhi, Azhagiya Theeye and Payanam) focus on humour with his treatment.
Karunakaran has been so far known as someone who could tickle our funny bones incessantly, but there are few portions in the film, especially the scene where he expresses his emotional outburst towards Maari Muthu over the issues of creating cheap publicities for banning the movie. He wins the applause through the hearts of audiences, which reflects the current issue. He is someone who can get beyond the pre-written status of being a comedian and prove his proficiency in emotional roles as well.
If you think Nandita’s funny annoying role irks you, then she already won your reception. She creates an impact of being an amateur actress and the turmoil faced by Karunakaran and his team has been humorously projected. MS Bhaskar keeps up the show with a mix of humour and emotions. Choreographer Satish gets a decent role. Doubt Senthil is actually a surprising twist by the climax and the one we saw alongside in ‘Daddy Oru Doubt’ show appearing as a fake Godman keeps tickling your funny bone. The one appearing as ‘Karnan’ Maanja and the deliberate surprise he gives by the end of show is fantastic, which leaves the theaters in incessant laughter.
Technically, there isn’t much to focus upon. Radha Mohan is known for having some best songs in his movies like Azhagiya Theeye and Mozhi, but he has gradually left without offering such splendid factors here.
There isn’t anything to mark upon the flip side, except few lengthy sequences, which could have been trimmed to make crispier.
On the whole, Uppu Karuvadu is a passable entertainer that can be watched without any expectations and get back home with a happy status.
Verdict: Simple and convincingly entertaining
