This is the second time that director Radha Mohan and Jyotika are teaming up, and actually, the title of the movie has been picked up from a music from their earlier film, Mozhi. Thankfully, there are barely any references to the primary movie, besides when the music, Kaatrin Mozhi, performs within the background within the climax.
One of the pluses of the movie is that every character has been neatly outlined. Vidaarth matches into the footwear of Viji’s supportive husband, and the actor impresses in most sequences, particularly when he takes out his work-related anger on his spouse when she insists she’s going to proceed her job as an evening RJ. Lakshmi Manchu because the radio station’s head is authoritative, however fairly supportive of Viji when she yearns to return on her personal. In his position as Kumki, a poet-forced-to-write-jingles, Kumaravel is a deal with to look at, making us surprise why he’s not typically seen in movies. MS Baaskar because the lonely Neelakantan who snaps at everybody, Mayilsamy, Manobala, Sandra, Mohanram and Uma, all have objective within the movie and so they fulfil it with a lot conviction. The two cameos – by STR and Yogi Babu – don’t add a lot worth to the story, however make for an attention-grabbing watch.
The character on whom all the screenplay rides is Viji, and Jyotika pulls it off with ease – be it getting naughty along with her husband, dealing with callers who need to discuss soiled along with her, explaining with a lot simplicity the complexity of life to a chook, expressing angst when she is taunted for not passing Class 12 and even when she is pressured to decide on between her household and job.
Kaatrin Mozhi is an official remake of the Bollywood movie Tumhari Sulu, which received Vidya Balan rave opinions and a bunch of awards, and Radha Mohan manages to retain the spirit, and the scenes (kudos to Suresh Triveni, who wrote and directed Tumhari Sulu, for developing with a narrative that has pan-India enchantment), of the unique, however does he surpass it? While the chemistry between Viji and Balu lacks the sizzle, and the ‘hello’, the sass – each of which had been prime notch within the Vidya Balan-starrer – this one undoubtedly is an interesting entertainer.
